Default Good Jeep mechanic Boston/South Shore for OME lift?

Hello,

I've searched through the forum for duplicates of this thread but they're either dated (mechanics suggested no longer in business) or never provided an answer.

I am looking for a good Jeep mechanic to work on my Jeep XJ 2000. I would like to replace the stock suspensions with an Old Man Emu Medium Duty suspension system. I researched all systems out there, and this seems to conform to my needs; I don't use the Jeep off road a lot, but I do need it to be a smooth ride. I do drive on snow, unpaved roads and occasionally on sand, but nothing requiring huge lifts etc.
As far as multiple days of research have shown, there is no ARB dealer nearby (I live in Hingham).

I know about Elias 4 Wheel Drive center in Townsend, but it's 2 hours away and they don't sell Old Man Emu. I'm not sure that they would be OK with me bringing them the kit and having them install it. I could find it online for $800 from reputable sellers. Whenever I suggested to a mechanic that I bring my own parts, they never reacted well.

Is there a honest and reasonable mechanic nearby who will work on my Jeep? I tried Boston Jeepz in Newton and, while their service was good, they wouldn't do lifts on 2000 XJs.
Also, this is not something I can do myself. I could if I had the spare time, but I want it done properly and in a timely fashion. If the mechanic I find will do a great job, he's likely to get way more business from me and my Jeep-owning friends (everyone in my large family owns Jeeps).

Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I'm not sure how far this is for you, but Endangered Species Jeep shop is in Holyoke. They are more than qualified.
