What do you think, Do we need our own specialty Shop?

So what do you guys think, is it time for our own Super Duty and Powerstroke Specialty Shop? There are tons of general automotive and diesel repair shops, and a handful of Dodge/Cummins places but to my knowledge there is not a single place that eats, breathes and lives Super Duty and Powerstroke in the NW. Be it maintenance, repair, performance, suspension, chassis, interior, exterior, electronics. I mean the whole 9 yards. So speak up and let me know!

True, and they do a great job of it.

But I believe Fordnut said the only Ford dedicated shop in the NW (NW - NorthWest). FCDP is in Florida, the SE (SE - SouthEast).
