Default Recommended DFW Area Diesel Shops

The vibration/hum I picked up is slowly getting worse. There is a part of the exhaust touching a cross member, but I am going to isolate that. It vibrates hard enough to back the bell-housing bolts out... I don't have time or the expertise to properly diagnose what I think is a trans problem (207k on it). I would drive out to Josh in Tyler, but I am hard pressed to find time to shoot out there.

Any (currently) recommended shops in the immediate DFW area?

Thanks lads

That's what it's seeming like. Gotta find a hole in my schedule to even think about getting out there. Thanks Tom

careful with driving it if you still are. may be a bad u-joint. if its vibrating hard enough to loosen up the bell housing bolts, it wont be long till the trans case or extension housing cracks.

I wish I could say I wasn't... It's my only way to and from work. It has gotten a bit worse since I noticed it. I switch between saying screw it and praying every time I get on the road.
