Good place to do a lot of work in Fort Collins?

Hello Everyone,

Need some advice or recommendations on places in Fort Collins.

I am looking to regear, ARB, and new shafts in the rear. Also just picked up an HP D30 and looking to sleeve, gusset, replace upper CA mounts, regear, and new shafts.

These are going to take someone with good mechanical skills, shop, tool access, welding, etc...

So based on my dribble above, are there any recommendations for shops or people in Fort Collins (or close areas w/in 15 miles) that you would take your Jeep to again and again?

She is my DD so I just can't drop her off for several weeks and prefer someone close in case of questions or issues.

Thanks everyone!

Bullhide 4x4 on S. College (by the Nissan dealership) does good work.

Does anyone know if Xtreme Engineering is still around the area?

I checked out one of the shops mentioned above, and I wasn't impressed. Extremely over priced, did not want to order the parts I wanted and needed, and pretty much told me I was wasting my time with my build.

I have not checked out the other one yet, but I will soon.

Thanks!

Xtreme is around but I am pretty sure they just build buggies and big rigs. Also the last time I stopped by to inquire about some work they were very busy.

Fort Collins and Boulder locations.

Never had them do anything major, but they handled a few minor issues and inspection of a few Jeeps I was thinking about buying.

Professional and thorough.
