    T & J Performance in the City of Orange is very good, have personal experience with them. They've been in the off road business for over 35 years. They built up a Jeep for me in 2007. They do work for various race teams and are active with Jeep Speed. Great bunch of guys that know their stuff. Can't go wrong with Truck & Jeep Performance.

    I think we could start an entire thread on where the divide is between Southern and Northern California. People in different locations each have their own ideas of where it is!
