Suggestions for a NE shop to do some work

I wasn't sure where to put this, but thought this was the best fit.

I just got a 1994 d-90 and I'm trying to find a place in the NE that does good work. I know of ECR, but didn't know if there were other places that do a quality job. I wish i could still work on my own truck, but there is a lot less space for DIY projects in Boston than in Texas.

For starters, I'm trying to get some of the previous owner's mods undone (lift, etc.) but at some point would be interested in the V8 swap using Nick's kit.

Thanks!

I have been using J White's in Framingham and they do great work. I would not recommend Boston Overlander which I believe is now just Overlander in Malden.

No question recommending BDR Auto in Holliston. 508-429-4720
He built my truck.
Converted trucks from gas to diesel and done all kinds of mods to other trucks. Brian is an overall great guy.
