Non LR Mechanic Greensboro, Nc.

I'm looking for a good shop that can repair/maintain Ford Rangers 2002 through 2010 models. Tired of getting over charged at the dealers and or screwed from non dealer mechanics that cant change a plug without cross threading it. Thanks in advance.

How many trucks? Would it be cheaper to hire a mechanic to work out your office? I've seen used lifts go for $500 - $1000.

yeah I really dont have an operation to support something like that out there...from a cost stand point I'd like to find someone already set up for that...trouble is it's Bill's backyard shop or dealer...nothing in between. When I thought I've found a good shop their not around long. Don't get me wrong I dont mind paying, but when the dealer wants $1200.00 for a valve cover gasket and new plugs and wires and reset the PCM I get pissed. Who charges 3hours labor for a valve cover gasket on a 2002 ford ranger in the mega metropolis that is Greensboro North Carolina!
