New Hampshire Mechanic Recommendation

Looking for recommendations on a decent and affordable mechanic for my 97 TJ. Needs some basic maintenance caught up on... I live on the NH Seacoast, so Rochester/Dover/Portsmouth area is ideal. Thanks!

Steve's Jeep Country right on Route 4 in Epsom is probably one of the best Jeep shops in New Hampshire. It isn't that bad of a drive from the seacoast.

Not trying to be a bad guy here, but a friend of mine had a set of 4.56 gears and a Super 35 kit with an OX Locker installed here a couple years ago. A hundred miles later one of the wheel bearings chewed through an axle shaft at 60 MPH causing a 35" BFG mud to leave the vehicle on the highway. Opened up the diff to find that there were no axle seals ever installed in the axle and the gears were still dry like they never had any oil on them. Brought the issue to steve's looking only to get the problem corrected with no hard feelings, and they flatly denied any wrong doing, and offered to fix it for about $2500. I mean come on, there were no axle seals in the tube.

That was a couple years ago, so things may be different, but make an informed decision.

That being said, I work at Davies Tire in Portsmouth on Islington St. and we're damn good...

Just sayin... lol

I called Steves Jeep Country last year to buy 5 new rims and 5 new tires and have them mounted, balanced and installed. they didnt want to order them or install them. the guy acted like it was too small of a job. they lost all my business and i dont tell people to go there.

Driving Straight Again.

Well I had an alignment done today at Davies and no complaints. Steering Wheel no long shakes like it's going to fall off at 45mph and no scratches on my wheels which other places often said would happen.

Thanks - Davies Tire
