Any honest and quality mechanic recommendations for our area?

I am seeking mechanic recommendations in the Beaverton, Hillsboro, Aloha, Portland area.

I am the original owner of my 1995 EB Bronco. It just crossed 100K miles and finally needs some repair work. Nothing has ever broken on this Bronco. I have performed all the scheduled maintenance myself and installed various upgrades such as rotors, exhaust, cool air intake, lifted suspension, 200 amp alternator with dual batteries, stereo system, etc.

It has just started to leak from a freeze plug and unfortunatley I don't have the time or space to do the work myself. I will have the water pump replaced at the same time as I am still running the original one. Hoses are already new.

I also want to change out my gears and add a new locker. If I find a solid Ford motorhead, I will also consider having some performance work done to the motor, although she still runs great.

Any suggestions on beefing up the motor?

More importantly, any suggestions on who to take it to for these various services?

I guess there are no reliable and honest mechanics known by this chapter? No engine mod opinions either?
