Looking for a good shop to take my truck to?? any help??

Hey guys, so ive had my 6.0 since about the end of last summer and so far i have had to put new tires tranny hpop some fuel injectors and a few other misc things. when I did the fuel injectors for the first time I only had enough money to do the ones that were needed at the time. what a mistake. Long story short i now have the money to replace the rest of them and the egr so im trying to find a repair shop with a good reputation among the diesel community and one that wont leave me pennyless when Im done. Where are any places that you guys would recommend?? Thanks alot.

what area are you in?

2008 F250 6.4 - a little of this, a dash of that and soon you have made a truck the way Ford should have made it!

Pretty sure he is in the Springs area. It's been awhile since we have heard from him.


Matt, are you opposed to doing the work yourself? From other diesel guys I have spoken with around here, I would not go to PCD, I have heard nothin but bad stories about them.

You will save a ton of money doing it yourself bud. Maybe see if any other chapter members are free to lend a hand. How quickly are you trying to get this all done?
