Mechanic recommendations for Chicago

Anyone in Chicago know of a reliable shop? I'm looking to compare labor pricing and possibly switch mechanics as my guys shop is forever busy and a simple job takes 2-3 days sometimes.


Also my number is 773 757 7413 if anyone is ever in the city and needs directions, or possibly needs to get winched out of a jam.

Thanks

Try Mikes Garage in Arlington Heights. Really nice guy, used to have a Rubicon as well. I bought a snow plow off of him a few years ago and he was great, installed it for me as well. I'll be taking my jeep in for some work in a few weeks once i get all my parts.

I trust him with my Jeep, not sure what prices are but I'd rather pay someone more and have it done right.

A good trusted mechanic is worth the wait.

Thanks gents.
I guess I was being a bit impatient there.
I'll call Mikes and try to get a quote from him and take it from there.
