    Exclamation Any good jeep mechanics in Colo Springs?

    Does anyone know of a reputable mechanic that works on jeeps without charging an arm and a leg for the labor? My 98 Sport Wrangler is having problems with the clutch/gearbox. The tension in the clutch changed after I put it into 2nd gear and it popped out (sounded pretty bad when it popped out). I need to get it looked at ASAP because anytime I engage the clutch, I hear a high-pitched squealing like a loose belt. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Don't know any off hand, used 4 wheel parts for a little bit then realized they were over priced!!! Did my own gears when I went down to 5.13. I would stick with a mom and pop place.

    yeah first time. It was an all day process started at 0900 and finish at 1600 Had a buddy do the backlash for me but it didn't take hime but a couple tries to get the shims right. I would definatley recommend having someone there that know what to do if you get in a tight spot

    I've used Predator too. They're good people. Ed is just off of Galley on Valley east of Powers.
