custom shop in Oklahoma?

First post. I'm looking to get started in off-roading and am looking for a shop to customize my '90 Wrangler. It's bone stock and been sitting for several years after I got tired of dealing with electrical problems. I'd like to gut it out, including a V8 conversion. Can anyone recommend a shop in Oklahoma or north Texas? I'm in central OK but willing to travel.

Thanks in advance.

My favorite shop, (due to unbeatable prices and service) is Supplee 4WD near I-240 & Sunnylane. Bob Supplee is the owner, and the guy who answers the phone.

3615 E I 240 Service Rd Oklahoma City, OK 73135-1733 - (405) 799-8977

for custom work in oklahoma Kings Offroad in tulsa is about as good as it gets. Kenneth was a fabricator for years for Sam's OffRoad and opened his own shop and does first rate work.

www.KORE4x4Customs.com

I've got him building a custom cage for my CJ7 right now and had a large hand in swapping the 5.3 into my jeep which has worked flawlessly. He specializes in CJ's and Wranglers primarily but works on anything and everything. I'll also be using him when I do my front and rear axle swap next year

x3!!!

If you need custom welding and fab, Bob has a couple of buddies he calls the "night shift" (as in they stop by the shop about everyday on their way home from work). They do Heep work out of their own private shops part time, but work for big industrial during the day with decades of fab experience. Good value for the $$$ too!

About 3 years ago Bob gave me the name of a guy who might do the regear work for my CJ. Well, the guy actually did do the work for me and I've been very happy with it. Didn't have to spend a lot of $$$, either.

I've been away a long time but I want to thank you guys for your input.

The Jeep project got sidelined for a new job, new baby and new-to-me 1973 De Tomaso Pantera.

I'm starting a resurrection project on the 90 YJ. Once I get organized and on my feet I'll start a thread in the YJ room.

Thanks, again!

Is Sam's Off Road in Tulsa, (I think) still in business? If so, you don't hear anything about them any more.

Sam's web page is still up. I think they ran a rig in the last two Ultimate Adventures as well.
