06 Commander had an issue with valve seats, valve dropping into Cylinder 5. Dealership quoted 8k to fix. Shop down the street will install a remanufactured for $1300 labor. The engine from Jasper is around $6000. Was about to seal the deal when I figured I'd shop around. Came across a posting of people taking their engines to local machine shops and having them fix it for significantly less money.

Any one here have a shop that does this sort of thing or have a shop they really like? Engine, intake, oil cooler, pilot bushing and labor it's looking to be around 8k regardless of dealership or local mechanic. - Any shop recommendations would be great. If you have any experience with Jasper I'd also love to hear your story! Jasper does have a 3 year warranty which is appealing.
