Anyone know of a reputable jeep mechanic in or near pottsville PA?

Im looking to re-gear, I already have all the required parts and master install kit, I just can find a place to give me a decent price on labor! the best quote I got on labor was 12 hours+ around $1250, and they will warrantee there work.

is this an ok price? as i read through the forum other people are asking similar questions, and the answers vary to much for me to make a competent decision.
I do understand that prices Vary from state to state, and even town to town, but luckily for me i can navigate threw either NY,CT or PA.

Im assuming it should be cheapest in PA, also there should be a much bigger pool of able mechanics there as apposed to NY and CT.

2011 jeep wrangler sport, auto trans im going from 3.73 to 5.13's, if i can save enough on the labor i would be able to afford 1 arb locker, ( for my rear) !!! please help

Try calling Outten county jeep in Hamburg pa. They're about a mile south of rt 78 on rt 61 (the exit by cabelas) and are a mod friendly dealer. Lots of guys in the local jeep club use them. They did my gears. Ask for Brian in parts and he'll take good care of you. 610-562-5174

07 rubi unlimited with skids, winch, 37's
99 xj stock and staying that way
92 yj stock for now

Look into Full Circle 4x4 (http://www.fullcircle4x4.com/) I spoke to them yesterday in regard to doing some work on a D60 rear axle for my Jeep and they were extremely knowledgeable. Dave, the guy I spoke to, basically put all of my local shops to shame and offered a very nice quote. Mind you I have not worked with them yet.
