4x4 axle shop recommendation?

I'm interested in getting quotes on having a limited slip (either OEM or TrueTrac) put in to my "new to me" 2006 F250 4x4. Can anyone recommend some shops with good experience doing this type of work?

I'm in Rochester, so the closer the better, but I'm willing to travel for quality work. I called Heartland Four Wheel Drive in St. Cloud and felt really good about the conversation I had with them, and they sound loaded with expertise and experience in this area. I thought I'd check here for other recommendations.

Yeah, a few transmission places I called really wanted nothing to do with aftermarket upgrades. On the plus side, as I mentioned, Heartland really seemed like a bullseye for the type of shop I'm looking for... it would just be nice to have at least one or two other shops to compare and choose from.

Not sure where you live but there are a couple 4x4 places on central avenue north of Blaine, Hooze 4x4 is the closest and I have heard good things about them. I am ure they could help you out or point you in the right direction.
