Where to post shop recommendations?

Not sure if there's a good place on this forum. I've been looking through and found the vendor section. I've seen the ratings sections. All run through parts but none seem to run through ratings on individual shops. I'm posting this question in the TJ section as (you can tell from my profile) is what I own. I dropped the transmission crossmember and pan to swap fluids. Living in the NE I was shocked to find the frame looked ok when the rest of it seemed to be poorly maintained. It wasn't till I started cleaning the frame up to replace the nutserts that I noticed a small hole. A good whack on the side of the frame and a good section fell right out. Any ways...living in Boston I searched the NE and found a shop in CT to repair it. They actually have done a bunch of TJ's and pride in their work. There were actually two other TJ's there while mine was there. I couldn't speak higher about the work they did or their warranty. I won't get into specifics here, but easily could if needed.

I'm not associated with the shop at all. Just had a great experience with the place and am always looking here for good info, and to pass out a recommendation if I can. I know from the info I've pulled from here what a great help it's been. This being my first Jeep, I've been able repair/freshen up everything from the drive train, to vent drains.

Thanks again.

Well, there's couple of threads going on, within first few pages, about rust and people from NE asking what to do. Check in and give people your first hand experience and the quality of work, i think that would be as much as you can do.

Thanks for wanting to share your good experience/advice, I HATE RUST!

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

Go to the 4 wheeling section and post under your state. I know I occasionallly see referral requests for local shops in my state's section.

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

Lol, I know, I been on here for almost 2 years and I still see stuff I didn't realize was here ...love the state section though for talking to locals and finding out about sponsored events or just a few guys going wheeling on short notice.

I'm in the same boat which is why I was asking. I had found a couple posts when looking, but they were from about three years back. Didn't want to bring up a dead thread.

I did that on purpose. Didn't want to throw the info out there and then have put it in the wrong place and break any forum rules. The name of the shop is Sandman's in Manchester. I'll throw a couple links I had found while searching for him. I'm more than happy to post any pics of his work if anybody asks for it.
