Shops in the springs???

So we just got the wife a 04 excursion with the 6.0 in it.. Anyone know any good shops here in the springs? We wanna do the egr delete, fix the head gasket/studs, do a new oil cooler etc.. It has just over 103K on the odo so we wanna fix it before anything happens.

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.
