The best 4x4 shops in Grande Prairie

What is a good shop for getting command starts and the like?
I'm in the market for a command start here quick like.

I have a 2007 Jeep wrangler unlimited (standard transmission).
I have no fancy extras like security,power doors or locks.


I phoned Audio Concepts, they quoted me $716.

If not, where should I go?

Is this a reasonable price? Has anyone here had good / bad experiences with this shop?

Cristal Glass just replaced the windshield in my wife's JK, she had glass insurance so it cost only $50 for the deductable. They did a good job no complaints from here. While I was there I had them cut a piece of 6mm glass to replace a broken glass shelf in our fridge, cost $34, less than 1/2 the cost of buying the shelf at the appliance dealer.

what about Pat's????????
I can't believe that noone has mentioned Pat's Driveline yet ! Granted, I'm from Ft.St.John, but I've used the boys over at Pat's in GP since I moved to the Peace Country three years ago and don't think I'll ever get a shaft built elsewhere. The manager there is a 4x4 enthusiast and will actually understand angle issues and how to solve them. He can also suggest cheaper solutions for you that work (at the cost of a higher sale to him too!). Example: I'm currently building a REALLY big CJ7 and my driveline angle are attrotious! He made the suggestion to go to a Ford dealer and get some used (core) front driveshafts and output flanges from a newer Superduty. Once my upgraded output shafts from JB conversions are on my Dana 300, they'll be a bolt on! All they'll have to do for me is lengthen or shortn the shafts as needed. This is the kind of help that guys like us need, and they've given it to me without blinking an eye, or ever meeting me 'cause all my business has been over the phone. Oh yeah, and they'll stand behind their products too... I've had three warranted shafts in the past three years.

Ya, they built me a F350 front shaft for the rear of mine - bolted to an Atlas II - no problems so far.

I had to take Ida's Jeep in for a waranty recall to reprogram a brake module, made an appointment for Friday Morning at Norlan Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep, had the Jeep JK there by 07:50, poured myself a coffee in thier waiting area, about 10 minutes later, my friend Darrel Vanderkaaden was droping in to say hi, he had done the work & it was ready to go. I was home in time to drive my daughter to school at 08:30.I was happy with thier quick responce, so far I have had the JK in to Norlan for two oil changes and this one waranty recall, so far they have treated us well.

Glad they treat you well Ken, I have had no such luck there. I'm starting to think that I'm the one who is unreasonable????

Ken, I'm glad to hear of your good service at Norlan. I credit the majority of my knowledge to Darryl. He's one of the best mechanics I've ever met!!

I had the same waranty repair done at gp chrysler
They were friendly and the shuttle service was pretty fast.

It did take them all day to get to it even though I had it in by 7:45am.

I'm just glad my brakes have less of a chance of failing now Smile

ADVANTAGE BRAKE AND MUFFLER
Once again, Advantage makes the grade. Took the Power Wagon in to get an alignment done after installing the BDS longarm suspension. When I picked it up, she told me they spent some extra time on it. I figured that was expected as nothing was where it should be after installing such a system. Then she tells me the price. $85.00 !!! Unbeleivable, Steve pulls through again. They don't charge extra for more time spent on an alignment, it is what it is.

Steve did the front wheel bearings on my explorer and in the process the front axle was destroyed so he put a new one in, no charge on the axle. Awesome.

My two cents:

1. GP Chrysler: they were able to get me a factory ordered Rubi in 8 WEEKS! Nor-lan and everyone in Edmonton were saying closer to SIX MONTHS!

2. Standard autoglass. They've given me some great deals on glass work, and good quality.

3. Shade-all. I stopped by for some 3M Clear vinyl (put on exterior hinges = NO ROCK CHIPS Big Grin) and they gave me about 3' by 6'' for free (scrap piece).

Cheers

wash up shops
Where's the best / cheapest way to get your jeep clean?

I'm guessing you'd want to hit up a cheap coin op spray wand type wash bay first to remove chunks.

Then perhaps bring it to a shine at the lazer wash?


Also, do we have any of those porn star wash in tight white shirt type car washes?
I guess it's not California but I'm sure there starving college girls here too .... (just kiddn)


Dirty jeeps are great and all but I'm sick of describing the color of my jeep as 'magenta'

A little known "secret":

The carwash at the Shell on Resources has a special on Wednesday.

It's $6.00 for 1/2hr. They are open until 10PM.

I usually wait in the summer to wash my rig till then. I hose it down for a few minutes at home beforehand to soften the mud, then head over there.

They don't care if you go through a few times either.
