Ford Mech in Yellowstone, MT Area

Love this site and community. I've gotten great info and advice.

My son and his buddies borrowed my van for a mega road trip from Boston to west coast and back. They've logged about 5,000 miles getting west and will log a few more on the way back. It had an oil change when they hit the west coast but I want to make sure it's good for the rest of the journey.

My van is a 2013 Ford E350 5.4 Ujoint converted 4x4. I'm looking for a good Ford mechanic near Yellowstone, MT (or just east of there) to look over the van before it heads back. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Greg

ron is good people for sure.

I know member larrie was forced to use the ford dealer in Idaho falls, but I don't recall him elaborating on their service. maybe pm him?

my family still lives in the Idaho falls area and I know my brother in law has a good reliable diesel mechanic there. if the van ends up in that area lmk and ill get that info for ya.

Ron is gone. He sold the business and his newish home in Texas and I think is in the PNW somewhere or on the road. He sold his SMB too and bought a big motorhome.

If he sees this he can surely make a recommendation though. He knows everyone in the area.
