Hi Bugout! I'm in the Buffalo area - kind of far I guess but depending on what you're looking to do we have some good shops up here. If it's off road you can check out Jim Dean's - he is THE off road specialist here. His site isn't much to look at but you can get a # & call - www.jimdeans.com.
If you're looking for performance, there's a place near Niagara Falls - Kennedy's. I can get contact info if you'd like. I know of 1 guy who travels from LI to have his truck worked on & is very pleased w/the custom chip work they've done.
Feel free to email me & if you did decide to come up this way maybe we can meet - that would be cool!
Godd luck - let me know what you're looking for & I'll try to find it!
