It's a family owned business that's in it for the long haul. Good people you can depend on.
+1 ! for Trail Quest
FYI: They charge $80 / hr

Thanks for info on this place, I'll have to see what they're all about.

Also will have to see what their hourly labor charge is.

--------------------------------

So far I've had my Jeep at Trail Quest twice in the last two weeks.

They've done great work. The specialize mainly in Jeeps! So they know what they're doing.

----

So far, the first time I took it there, they install the OME 2" Suspension system (including Steering stabilizer, WITHOUT T-Case drop), and a front CAM bolt kit. Cost a little under $300. They found a noise in my front drive shaft, warped front rotor, and 30% left on other brakes. They also lubed everything up nicely.

I also learned from them a few things that are extremely important as to how the differentials, t-case, and transmission are designed.
--- Thanks to them, I'll be able to remedy the design issue, and not break them.

The second time I brought my Jeep there, they installed a M.O.R.E. 1in body lift and Brown Dog Off-Road 1in Lifted Motor Mounts w/ new HD Engine Brackets. Did great work! (was even going to remove my front drive shaft for free until I got it replaced). They also discovered my water pump is going out fast and could go any time.
--- Thanks to them, they caught my water pump and front drive shaft in time to service them without causing any collateral damage.

They're not only good, but very good people. Talked to me on the phone for 30 minutes answer every question I had about control arms and tires.

--------

Today or Tomorrow, I'm bringing it back to them again, this time they're first replacing the water pump. Then installing a new Tom Woods custom made front drive shaft, Tom Woods rear drive shaft for 2-6" of lift, finishing the Tummy Tuck (BL and MML done) with a UCF Ultra high clearance skid plate, Lowpro transmission mount, and Rubicon compressor bracket. Then a Novak T-Case linkage cable conversion kit. Then installing upper rear adjustable control arms, and doing a complete fluids change.

They're great, I bought all 4 sets of control arms, and instead of installing them all, if it doesn't need a part, they let me know so I can return it rather than taking my money for labor. Great people.

------

When it's all said and done they'll have done....
1) OME 2" Suspension system with Steering Stabilizer (minus T-Case drop)
2) M.O.R.E. 1" BL
3) Brown Dog Off-Road (Rubber Type) 1in Motor Mount Lift + New HD engine brackets
4) Front CAM Bolt kit
5) Novak T-Case linkage cable conversion kit
6) UCF Ultra High Clearance Skid Plate w/ Rubicon Compressor Mount, + UCF Lowpro Tranny Mount
7) Tom Woods Custom Made Front drive shaft, 38.5in (1.5in longer), for ~2.5" suspension + 2-3" Tummy Tuck, totaling ~4.5-6" of lift at T-Case.
8) Tom Woods rear drive shaft for Jeep Rubicon lifted 2-6"
9) DayStar Upper Rear adjustable control arms
10) FlowMaster high flow low rpm water pump
11) Complete fluids change, differentials, transfer case, & transmission.
--- Then only if needed ----
A) Lower front adjustable control arms (if needed)
B) Lower rear adjustable control arms (if needed)
C) Upper front adjustable control arms (if needed)
