Need Jeep Mechanic in SoCal

Was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for good jeep mechanics in the LA area. I just picked up a sweet '83 CJ-7 (pic attached) and I want to have someone go over it top to bottom. I want to replace all oils and fluids and would like to have the carb tuned/rebuilt (not idling as smooth as she should). I don't think there are any gremlins in this baby, but I want to be sure before I drive around too much.

Any help is appreciated!

Also get a copy of the Factory Service Manual so you can learn to do this yourownself.
That's because you WILL go broke pay'n others to do what you can.

Yes it passed smog. It's been sitting in a garage for the better part of the last 10 years which is really why I want someone to go over it. I'll def pick up the service manual and take care of the ongoing maintenance though, thanks!!

Pass'n SMOG is this state is a big issue with these old Jeeps.
Jason Bunch is the owner of Tricounty. I use to run with him and the Trailmasters 4WD Club. They are a complete Jeep repair/rebuild shop.
They AIN'T cheap.....
