Help locating a good repair shop

I bought a 2005 F250 6.0 new in January 2005. The truck currently has about 61,000 miles and hasn't had any major problems. However, I recently noticed some oil splatters on top of the engine, but I can't see where the leak is. The truck is also starting to have a periodic extended cranking period before it starts. Not every time, but enough it has my attention.

I live about 120 miles south of Chicago on I57. Does anyone out there have a FORD dealorship or an independant that they highly recommend in my area? I'm willing to drive a reasonable distance to go to a good repair shop. I'd like to find a place familiar with the 6.0 and all the TSB's and unique issues the 6.0 seems to have.
