auto shop recommendation in Metro Denver Area

I think I have a cracked manifold on my 02 TJ. Can anyone recommend a shop for the repairs? What's the ballpark range for the repairs? I'm tempted to do the repairs myself, but it seems like a hard task to do by myself. Any input is appreciated. Thank you.

What kind of repair are you looking to do? If you have a cracked manifold (I'm assuming exhaust manifold, btw), the only thing they will do to repair it is to replace it. If you are looking for a temp fix, like to weld the hole up, talk to a couple people here, and they might help you out with that.

I found the cheapest place in Denver area. Its called Edgewater Jeep Repair
303-477-8766 5038 w. 44th ave
they were recomended by the girlfriends sister who had a jeep (pretty cool)
I had the motor mount bolts broken off in the engine block. every repair shop I know wanted 300ish not even replacing the motor mounts. they charged them for 90, 120ish out the door with a new boot under the stick shift connecting to the body. they have alot of old jeeps in the lot as well. highly recomend them.

Thanks for the quick reply. Yes, it seems like the exhaust manifold is cracked.
