Hey there,

New here and my dream car is a TJ. Been doing research on getting on and heavily digging through the for sale posts in Facebook market place, on this forum and other sites.

Can you recommend a trustworthy mechanic in Los Angeles?

Thanks!

this guy:

never used him personally but i know some people that have and he is very knowledgeable and is very fair in pricing.

dropped a friend off to pick up her jeep that he did the ball joints on and he had this in his shop:

forget the year and model since that was a while ago but he restored the whole thing himself.

we chatted for a while about jeeps and he recently had a TJ that he fixed up and sold. he had a few old york compressors laying around and gave me one at no charge because he liked my rig. pretty cool guy and if there comes a time when i need a local mechanic, that’s where i’ll take mine.

You might want to be a little more specific on area of LA.

Can't speak for the OP, but I'm near downtown LA. Willing to drive a fair amount if there's a mechanic who's highly recommended!

It’s just LA/OC is such a big area and Long Beach to the valley can be a three hour round trip at the wrong time of day.

This is an early CJ5 with either the 4cyl F-134 or the Dauntless 225 v6 engine (ie before they lengthened the nose and went to the AMC engines in '72). Paint job looks very clean.
