Central Oregon Shop Recommendation

Hey All,

I am moving to Bend in about a month, I currently live in Chicago. Anyways, my jeep's suspension is all stock, I am waiting till I get out there to do everything, wouldnt make sense to do it now and lower my gas mileage before I drive 2500 miles.

Anybody have a good shop they can refer me to when I get out there? I am looking to get a lot done, 4" lift, regearing, etc.. I would really like it to be done right by someone who knows what they're doing as this is my DD.

Thanks in advance, and if you're from Bend I'm really excited to get out there!!!

I stopped by the local 4x4 shop on the way to dinner the other night. The shop was really nice and the folks there very helpfull. The shop is located on the main street going thru Bend (sorry I can remember the name).

Well its a bit of a drive but if you want the work done correct, the first time and not have to mess with it.... I would recommend Leanords off road in Hillsboro Oregon.

He is a little arrogant (sp) (poop don't smell..) and some might say a little high priced (I don't think so.) I paid $3000 for new ARB's front/rear 4.88 gears, all new bearings and spicer u-joints).

HE KNOWS HIS STUFF AND DOES IT CORRECT.

Lots of people come from all over to get their rigs lifted, locked and regeared at his shop because he is one of the best at it and stands behind his quality work.

97 Jeep: 5.0 HO,13"lift, 39.5" Swampers, Air Lockers, 4.88's, Disk Brakes, 9500 Lbs Winch, recovery tools .
