There aren't too many shops here that specialize in diesels. PCD (Patterson Custom Diesel) is here, but I have heard some horror stories from people that have taken their PSDs there. I have no plans on having them do any work on my truck. I will try to remember what the other shop is here and post it up for you.

Unless it's something that requires special tools and/or a lift, I say do all the work yourself. You'll save a lot of money, and have the pleasure of actually completing the work with your own hands. There are always people willing to help ya as well.
