New Massachusetts CJ owner looking for shop advice...thanks.

After being without a Jeep for 10 years or so - finally bit the bullet and bought a 1985 CJ7. AMC 360 conversion with SOA setup, 35s and all. Frame rock solid, fiberglass tub and original sheet metal up front. Love it but I have a short list of things I need to do and looking for a local (Mass) shop to do the work as my job is about 89 he's a week so I have limited time to do the heavy lifting - let alone the technical expertise.
Looking for a Ma shop to do the following..some light electrical (speedo inop, turn signals, etc), brake upgrades and take the suspension down a bit - I may drop to 32s...reasoning is this is going to be on pavement waaaay more than off. Just being realistic. Any recommendations on a. Shop to both advise me and do the work? I'm not a tech and I'm realistic about my time constraints and mechanical ability. Appreciate the help and I'm sure I'll have plenty of other stupid questions as we go along.
