Phoenix mechanic

Does anyone know of a jeep mechanic / enthusiast in the PHX area. My hopes is to find a mechanic by trade who loves jeeps. Who could tell you what bolt came off of what year jeep just looking at it. I am looking for a CJ and want someone who knows their stuff to go over it.

well if i was looking to buy a Cj(?). the south west would be the place to find them with least rust. but as a DD without some major updates? your hopes on finding a bolt detective, thats funny? I would check AZ auto traders. For sale, search with net. Face it any Jeep that old will need work unless its a restored, or one of those that Jay Leno might have in the back yard with 10K on it. Finding stockers is getting harder to find.

Driving it back? from az would test how road worthy it was. Anything that good wont be cheep for an old car/Jeep.

I have had a cj2a/ cj5, the newer Jeeps are better stock. BY FAR. They get more complicted as they get newer. But you can take a Tj/Jk across the country and not feel like you drove a covered wagon.

good luck finding your Cj

I think you misunderstand my intentions. It won't be driven back to Chicago it will be transported. But I don't want some mechanic who knows how to swap sensors looking at it. I want someone in love with jeeps especially old ones. I know someone like that in San Antonio Texas but I'd rather not ship it twice. I was hoping in the fact off roading is big in AZ someone like that would be there. And since older cars are more prevelant in the SW that people who have actually worked on a carbed car would be there also.
