Tips to Find a Trusty Jeep Mechanic September 14 2017, 0 Comments
Last week, I was at Adrenaline Off Road getting some "How To" tips on how to grease my front drive shaft. While there I asked about the work they were doing on the two of Jeeps in the shop.
The work that needed to be done on one of the Jeeps at the Adrenaline Off Road shop shocked me. Jeff and Mike were fixing and replacing some pretty messed up work done by a local franchise shop. In the end it is going to cost this Jeeper thousands of dollars most likely $10,000 to fix and replace parts.
I cannot stress enough how important it is to get a good reliable mechanic to work on your Jeep, especially when you are upgrading and making aftermarket changes.
- Stay away from your average run of the mill car mechanic or even a franchise shop that deals in lifts.
- Reach out to your local Jeep Club for suggestions.
- If you are an off-roader make sure your mechanic has knowledge of off-roading or is an off-roader.
- Get references from fellow Jeepers/Off-Roaders
Jeff pointed out most of the work he is seeing lately is fixing shoddy work from other local shops. He is backed up with so much work in his shop ~~ at least 4 to 6 weeks out. Basically for two reasons, fixing shoddy work from other mechanics, and lack of good mechanics.
Jeff at Adrenaline Off Road is currently looking for an experienced full time automotive technician. If you are a Jeep tech looking for work or know of one, send resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org

Good news... Jeff and Mike have fixed all the shoddy work done by the other shop. The two twins and their Jeeps headed out this past weekend to Big Dogs for a first time crawling on the rocks.
