Most of you by now have noticed I haven't been on quite as frequently lately. I started a new job 2 weeks ago at my local 4x4 shop here in Muncy, Pa. We do everything from lift kits to lowering kits to fabrication, gear installs, stereo's, spray in bed liners, and everything in between including a NAPA certified body shop. I wanted to start this thread to share our progress with you. If you live in the area, stop by or check us out on Facebook. It would be greatly appreciated.

Some photos of the new body shop:

Nice shop!!! Lots of room. Not too many 4x4 shops around here have that much room. That Cherokee is really sharp!!! Nice paint job.

I still have not been impressed by my experience with them. There is a big porous spot in my one axle tube where they did something weird removing the old spring perches.

Call them and ask them to fix it. If someone in the shop messed up, and no one in management knows about it, the problem cannot be resolved.

I know how those things go. It sat for a few years after being flipped before being installed. I gotta tear the carrier out to replace the clutches. I will just clean it good and fill it in with jb weld.

It's been at least 3 years since I had that axle flipped there. I seriously doubt I would get anywhere.

Also, with the condition the tubes were in and the amount of cleaning that had to be done just to find metal that would take a weld... well I wouldn't think anything of it if it wasn't so close to where the old perches were cut off.

It's under all new management. And honestly, we're competitively priced with other repair facilities around town. Granted, we may be slightly higher, but you get what you pay for.

Downey, if you get the chance, stop in and see for yourself. I will personally take you on a tour of our shop.

That would be awesome man. I didn't know they were under new management. Just remember the old days with them.

Wasn't trying to bash u guys or anything. I have seen some of the work that has come out of that place some was too notch others wasn't but I know some of that falls back on the customer too. I haven't been around that scene much since I left Blaise Chevy. Used to inspect and work on stuff u guys had worked on
