The [Un]Official Where to Get Your Rover Fixed Thread

I thought it would be helpful to start pulling everyone's favorite shops together in one thread and especially helpful for those traveling to have a list in case they are broken down in an unfamiliar place.

So, I will start with my two local independent rover places. Both are great and run by great people with good service and fair prices.

http://www.roverrepairs.com/

Frank Dalahan, 301 Macdade Blvd, Collingdale, PA 19023 (outside Philadelphia) 484-494-9133

http://www.roverlab.com/

Trevor Griffiths, 2477 Old Hershey Road, Elizabethtown, PA 17022 (outside Harrisburg) 717-367-0176

If you use this format, at the end of the thread I can pull them all together and put them in excel.

Hello all-

Back when I was stationed in Jacksonville, FL, I had awesome help from James and Jake at British 4x4. As such, I'd recommend them if you're looking for help from central FL up into south GA. Both were dealer LR and Jaguar master mechanics, who split off to do their own thing a while ago and keep up to speed with the newest factory equipment and training.

They also make monster trucks out of Rovers and drive them around in the mud.
