Honestly, no.

I can safely say that I am the only one in the DFW area that may touch my truck (engine). There are a few people that I would let help out, but a "drop off, turn key" shop, no. I'm looking around for someone else at the moment, if I find something, I'll post it up.

I've been approached to do several trucks lately, but I honestly don't any spare time. I have 2 projects of my own and I've committed to 4 other trucks between now and Thanksgiving.

even the fact that you work on trucks is news to me. this state is huge, there has to be a shop somewhere.

I don't *work* on trucks. Anymore. I'm more of a referral. Most people get sent to me after they get jacked around. And over 80% is performance oriented. Once I get my shop built (whenever the wife decides on what land she wants to buy), I will only do 5-10 trucks a year.. if that.

I just can't recommend a shop in this area that I trust. Does that bother me? Quite a bit.

Go to High Performance Prose, Inc. Your Full Service Marketing Agency and send and email to Nicole and ask for Chad to get ahold of you to find out the name of the shop he uses, is on the southwest side of the metroplex somewhere, but its two or three ford master techs, that went out on their own, they have done all the work on Chad's truck and its putting some ponies to the ground for sure.

ON Edit, found the place

Diesel Dynamics

Crede Young is the owner
