Thumbs up

I have used Jesse for years for my son's 85 4runner (new engine) as well as work on my dual-transfer cases (was leaking like crazy). Fantastic service from someone who really cares about his customers.

Default Awesome Experience

I am new to wheeling and was taking a class with Bill Burke. Great class by the way. My radiator exploded (really, blew the hood up) and was stuck on Slaughterhouse Gulch. Bill towed me down and then I had the truck towed. Jesse was able to get me an steel radiator, thermostate, gasket and clutch fan for what the other guy wanted for just the radiator.

He picked me up from the Light Rail and even sent me to a buddy of his that did body shop stuff to fix my hood. He was great. I was out of town during most of it and I appreciated his use of text messages and email to keep me informed as to what was happening. He's busy but well worth it.


p.s Can't wait to go to my first Rising Sun meeting in July.

It's time to bump Jesse and Chris back to the top of this list (again)! I was having trouble with the brakes on my truck, the rears were not working. I called Jesse and we went over what all I did to troubleshoot. He said it had to be the Master. So I said "when can you get me in?" He then told me that I would kick myself for not doing it myself because it was so easy! So I did it myself. While I was bleeding the brakes, I noticed a blown boot on the driver's side. Another call to Jesse to have him check my work and have him replace the CV axle. He said my work was fine and replaced the axle! Now I can go Mall Crawlin!
Thank you Jesse and Chris!

Bump for Jesse and ATLR

In the past month he's done 3 timing belts on my aging fleet...
great workmanship, great turnaround.

Thanks Jesse!

Jesse, what's your current price on a 4runner 3.4 timing belt and water pump?

I don't think Jesse frequents this forum - you would be best off calling him directly

Huge thumbs up for Jessie and ALTR He took great care of my daughter Casey who lives in FC. We were unsure if the timing belt was done by the po on her GX470. After pulling the front apart Jessie noticed by the condition of the components that the timing belt had been done. Since the s belt was on the list of service, that's all he charged her for. Just saying some shops would have just put it back together and charged her for the tb job. Stand up guy and has mine and my daughters business all 3 GX470's... Thanks for the great service!!!!
