Good mechanic in Vegas area?

Does anyone know of a good (trustworthy) mechanic in the Vegas area? I need a couple of things fixed on my Jeep and don't want to get ripped off

Thanks!

Depends on what you need done I guess. Back Country Products 7028732950 3475 Polaris Ave 89102, Maximum Offroad off Trop and Arville, Four Wheel Drive Parts Trop and Decatur, Ted Wiens custom 4x4 on Oakey by the Stratosphere. Probably lots more too!

Thanks for the replies

I have coolant leaking out of the bottom of my Jeep and I can't figure out where it's coming from. Possibly the water pump... but I don't really have the expertise to diagnose and fix it. I'll give Ted Wiens Custom a try

That is a pretty easy fix. Which side of town do you live on? Maybe I can take a look at it and save you some $$. A buddy and I just put a new water pump on nis XJ, it was only like 40 bucks.

water pumps aren't too much trouble.. also check your freeze plugs, might have a bad one and they are hard to spot up under manifolds etc.. shouldn't be too tough to isolate tho..
