    My friend had his truck redone from the the frame up here. He is a picky so and so, but he was well pleased with the work they did. He said his next choice would of been the guys down there in Joplin. (I can see their machine gun logo, but can't remember their name.)

    Are you looking for a show truck style restoration or just getting an older truck into roadworthy condition?
    Either way is usually expensive.
    There are a couple of good shops in my area but they're both booked at least a year in advance. One will let you source the parts if you want to, the other one won't. Also, if they don't know you and you don't have local credit references they'll do the work in stages and charge you for each completed stage. They might also place an immediate mechanic's lien against the truck to make sure that all bills are paid. Either way, the truck doesn't leave the shop until all bills are paid.
     
    Rideandrepair Thanks this.
