That is Luke Miles shop!
Luke camped with Uncle Douglas, Kraig, myself, and others at Uwharrie last year.
He's been up to several MARs, too.
He's a bonafide wheeler as well.

Luke is a great dude for sure, and has a very well set up shop with some knowledgable techs to boot. Definitely pay a visit if you're in the area!

I've had Luke's shop work on my truck and anyone who knows me would think that would never happen as I usually do all of the work on my vehicles. He's good people and runs a great operation.

Luke has worked on my truck for the past couple of years. I recommend him. IMO he is the best non-LR dealer to get your rover worked on in the ATL area.

End up hanging out with Luke @ Uwharrie every year. They had the only Defender on display @
Overland Expo East last fall, it was an awesome rig. Only guy I know who while wheeling has sheared of a brake line and simpley grabbed a pair of vice grips and clamped it off before all the fluid ran out and kept right on wheeling (ie did not head back to camp).

People love this guy.

That's right! I helped him bleed the brakes the next day to firm up the pedal and he wheeled it all day long...

The soft top D2.

The Shop is great, I've gotten to the point where I'll bring my trucks from Nashville to Atlanta for them to work on them.

Luke is a great guy... and apparently quite lucky according to my last post!
