Sve is quality, a bit on the expensive side but all bill does is jeeps. He used to be a machinist and still has most of his tools. He is noq somewhere in east haven.

Second for Bill at SVE. The guy knows his stuff. He built my cage for me. Fixed other little crap I could never get right. Guys who know all the quirks of CJs are getting hard to find.

'82 Scrambler - NV4500/4.5" lift/33" Toyo MTs/4.0/twin stick, and my windshield washers work! Full 1/2 cab Cage

2004 Grand Limited 4.7 HO - OH Boy!

2010 Grand Laredo 5.7 Hemi - SICK - work vehicle -gone - replaced by an 08 Tahoe - nice ride.

Rossi Bros in Stafford! They do everything from lighting, suspension, wheels, and even decals. I've had them work on my JK and have been extremely pleased with their work. They are gonna be at the Jeep jamboree at the four town fair grounds this year.
