longshot... I need a mechanic

I'm looking for someone willing to do some sidework, or even just a solid recommendation of someone who is able to tackle this ****ty job... I've got two buddies that usually handle all the stuff im not willing to tackle, but both of them are unavailable for this.

My drivers side exhaust mani has been leaking a bit at the rear of the engine, it started out as just a small leak but has gotten worse in the last thousand or so miles. I basically NEED an exhaust gasket on that side. That being said, i might as well replace the other side, and install 3" DP and 4" straight exhaust, right? With all that being said, im currently waiting on the DMV to produce paperwork i need to get it titled and registered, so it is not registered at the moment, making it difficult for me to get it anywhere to get worked on, so if you had a trailer suitable for hauling my Dually that would be a plus.

I'm in Westcliffe, CO and usually do business in Colorado Springs, so i would prefer someone in that area. thanks!

You might try asking this question on the Colorado Diesel Truck Club site as well. I wish I knew where to tell you to go in that area.
