Good Machine Shop in DFW??

Need someone for those few things I can't do myself,
namely a large press for axles at the moment,
but also for random little things, maybe some porting etc
Maybe even some welding/fabricating.

I will even drive a little (i.e. Granbury, Weatherford, etc) to support a "small" shop instead of a big one. Haven't stumbled upon one yet since I moved.

Thanks!
- Sid

Garland

ET Automotive should be able to do all you need. They are in Garland I think. Some great guys. Mostly racing types, but can do axles and more.

Not really sure what you are looking for -- but I know Russ from Beartrax who is in the DFW area some where around Toyota of Dallas is absolutly freaking awesome when it comes to setting up gearing. He has done ALL of our gear setups -- I know he does other stuff just not sure what all he does. I will try to find his number if you want -- just let me know. I know he does QUALITY work and is a smaller shop. Him and his wife Christy are great people to wheel with too. In fact Christy is one who has helped me with my confidence in wheelin.

i could be wrong on the number, but it dont include the gears. it was just to set them up, you would need to take him the gears or order them threw him.

I sure do -- 972-406-9363

Ask for Russ -- you can tell him I gave you his number -- He knows me by my yellow tonka toy truck or being a member of Toyota Trail Riders.

He will do you right!!
