Anyone know of a good place that fixes Wranglers in SoCal

Ive got a jeep, no time to work on it, and I need a good mechanic to work on the Jeep. It is a 87 wrangler converted to the Mopar MPI kit, and it has some electrical problems... And Im tired of taking it to regular mechanics that have no experience with this stuff, and seem to 'make' up problems, or do a lot of guesswork...

I am in North San Diego county.. Thanks!

There's a guy in Temecula, Custom Wire Works, who is the best electrical guy I have ever met. He's an *******, and not cheap, but if you want it done right, and have some really tricky problems to solve, he's the guy to do it. I hate referring to him, but he's THAT good.

"And then I said, 'Just like that, but with more gas!' Oops..."

You try the jeep dealer? I know it sounds like a bad idea but I'm pretty sure when mopar came out with the kit they designed it to use factory jeep stuff and to be installed and fixed at jeep dealers. Some of the dealer guys are pretty good with electronics though finding a guy that's been there 12+ years when those electronics were current might be a little hard. I know some of the guys that worked at the chevy dealer I worked at were awsome when it came to factory wiring problems.

Otherwise a good 4wd shop (not a bolt on shop but one that actually builds rigs) might be a good bet.
