Looking for a good Jeep mechanic (San Jose Ca)

Does anyone have or know of any good JEEP mechanics in or near San Jose Ca? I really don't want to take it to the stealership or to one with little to no jeep specific experience.

Thanks in advance.....

A couple guys in my club swear by Arabia's, although i'd be more more inclined to have Jeff do fab vs mech for me...He has done a couple small things on mine a while back...what kind of work?

I would have to agree with Arabia's. I have had mostly mechanical work done on my previous Jeep and they did a fine job. He was pretty pricey but has come down a bit.

I am aware of Arabias and my take on them is pretty much what both of you guys said: more fab oriented and a bit pricey (but skilled).

I have an evaporative system leak and need someone with the pressurized smoke tester. I normally do all of my own wrenching but this is killing me. I know it's probably just a hose or a small fitting but I can't find it so it's time get some help.
