Southern Chapter
Local Shops & Retailers

Here is a listing of some local shops that we have been too, and want you to know about.
Shops are ranked on a scale of 1 to 10... 10 being the best.



Dallas Frame and Alignment - 10/10
2514 Fabens Rd
Dallas, TX 75229
"They do wonderful 4x4 alignment, frame straightening (last trip to shilo) and everything else you want... I highly recommend them to anyone and I have also sent many friends and family there too..."
-Warren Johnson

Fort Worth

Barton's Garage - 10/10
1615 W. Jefferson
Ft. Worth, TX 76110
(817) 923-6756
"Harold Barton is the 2nd generation owner of this shop following his father's footsteps. He is a great mechanic who does great work. He is not the cheapest in town, but he does the best work I have ever seen. I believe you get what you pay for. My Grandfather used his father's services before him and when his father passed on Harold took over the business. On a scale of 1-10, I would definately rate his work and job performance a 10. "

M.P. Motorsports- 7/10
Katy, TX (just west of Houston)
"M.P. (Mike Pickel) He is a local fabricator that builds bumpers, rock sliders, or anything else you can make with metal. He can also install gears and lockers. If you break or bend anything built by him, he will fix it or start over. He does meticluous work, but plan on him taking a while to finish your work."
-John Brown

United Transmission - ?/10
Westheimer @ Stoney Brook, near Voss
"I would not recommend United Transmission. My transmission was not fixed properly, thus resulting in large tow truck bills and rental car fees. It took the shop 3 different times to get it only mildly working well. They do not speak English well and will not know what you are talking about if you ask a question. They do not do good work. They do not do it on time. And they charge too much."
-John Brown

The Shop - ?/10
430 Perkins
League City, TX 77573 (a few miles east of Houston)
281 332-7911
"They have been in business as long as I can remember. Ken, the owner, is always on hand. They even have a some trails and hills on the property as a proving ground. When you get work done there you get to make sure it's working the way you thought it would before you leave. He is also a big supporter of local 4x4 activities. "
