Milwaukee, WI Repair

I hope this doesn't violate any rules.


I've performed all general maintenance over the 15,000 miles I have owned my truck, and it's been great!


But I am making a 6,000 road trip later this year, and although my truck is running and driving very well, I want to get it checked out by someone with more knowledge than myself before I embark.


Can anyone recommend a good shop somewhere within the general vicinity of Milwaukee, WI? Or even Wisconsin in general, or northern Illinois?


Thank you all in advance.

On the U joints if they have grease zerks then grease them. Have a clean air and fuel filters on and carry the 1st Gen emergency kit with you.

How far are you looking to travel from Milwaukee? Ryans Diesel is in waukesha area but they specialize in Duramax. KD Customs in in Ixonia area and they are extremely cummins familiar. Marengo IL has Calibrated Power Solutions. Sorry I'm not too familiar with actually Milwaukee area.
