Favorite Ford Mechanic

Who is everyone's favorite mechanic for their Ford truck?
Aside from yourself, who do you trust with your baby. Could be dealer, or independent shop.
Post up name, location and if you want, a quick list of why they are so great.

I currently have nobody I trust to work on anything. I've been burnt before.

I've had good luck with Dunlop Ford in Lethbridge so far. I take care of regular maintenance myself, but if I get a CEL, then I trust them to take care of it.

The guys in Peace River treat me well, but the 10hr. drive might be a problem for you.

Funny enough, I'm going to be through peace river a couple times this winter. However, I'll be driving a work truck, not my own.

Universal Ford in Calgary, there parts are cheaper. The mechanics know what there doing, there also the largest truck service shop in western canada. They saved my $1200 dollars, because Koch ford in Edmonton does not know how to measure and won't do warranty work.

Universal Ford quoted me $210 for getting a new key programmed. They charge a full hour of shop time for that. I questioned them on it, and I got attitude, like I should have been happy they'd even look at my truck.
Crowfoot ford did it for $130. I was very happy with the service from Crowfoot.
Don't think I'll be back to Universal anytime soon.

Just bumping this old thread to see if anyone has an opinions for someone to do a mechanical inspection on an expedition I'm looking at buying. Preferably near Calgary.
