What shop for LS Swap?

I live in North East Texas and am curious of shops within about 4-7 hours drive (basically about 300 mile radius) from me that do LS swaps. I am sure there are several, but curious if anyone has had experience with any specific one. If so, what is your review of the shop and did they use their own customization or did they use components from someone like RPM Extreme, Motech, or Bruiser?

'13 JKU Billet Silver, RockKrawler 3.5 lift, JRi Shocks, Currie VXR60s, Spyderlock Wheels, Nitto Trail Grapplers 37x12.50, ARB Twin with Lockers, PSC Hydro Assist, Superchips Flashpaq, Rubi Rails, Ace Rock Sliders, sPod, JCR Front & Rear bumpers, Engo 10KS Winch, KrawlOff-Road LEDs

Yep definitely dont trust a shop that doesnt use a kit.

Hit up @bluewave on here. He has a shop somewhere in Texas (dont remember exactly where) that does swaps and as mentioned contact @JohnPShoe at Overland Performance.

Hands down go see John at Overland Performance. He and Motech now have some type of joint venture and he is producing a number of the swap components.

His customer service is fantastic, and while somewhat odd to say, he genuinely cares about your enjoyment of the Jeep.

All that aside, he’s a damn sharp dude who knows his stuff and will treat your rig like it were his.
