Rovertek is not too far, I would give him a call first. Otherwise, grand prix cafe 631.353.3555 and there is a mechanic across the street a little ways east with a few Series trucks.

Thanks. Not my client, but guy has some brake rebuild issues. Seems a waste to ship a truck all the way down here.

Agree, Chris at Rovertek is not terribly far away (farmingdale area) and is excellent.

Depending on where your client is, there is a garage in Montauk that works on Series trucks as well.

Off-topic: ROVERTEK, what is that awesome 130 you have in your profile pic? Looks like there's seating in the back? Have any hi-res pics to share? Seems like the ultimate rig.

Sounds like Rovertek is the place to go for work. But a bit far for minor routine service items...Joe's is closed weekends. Any other suggestions?

Not far at all. Easy access to the LIRR as well.
