My wife was referred to Darrell and his father, Lloyd, soon after we purchased a 1994 Jeep Wrangler. It needed some work on the front axle which was going to cost more than mere chump change. Darrell was simply awesome. After learning that this was our first 4WD, he explained how all the different components worked together. Not on just the front end, but the entire drive train. As far as the leak coming from the front axle, he suggested a fluid change, free of charge, and see if perhaps water had made its way into the pumkin. That didn't work, so we decided to go ahead with the replacement of the required seal on the axle. We also had him do the front brakes and adjust the rear since he had the know how. That was a year ago, and the Jeep has had no problems, until lately. Our rear axle is showing problems with the LockRight lockers. He has gone over the options, and has done extensive research as to our cheapest avenue. We will continue to hold Darrell as a great mechanic, as is his father, which I haven't given enough credit. Lloyds transmission is a small operation, and they often take more than they can handle, but once you meet the crew, they will quickly become your next best friend when it comes to anything related to your precious drive train, or maintenance in general. I'd bet my next pay check on their credibility, reliability, value, ehtics, or anything else good about a G

Darrell, at Lloyds transmission was referred to us soon after our purchase of a 1994 Jeep Wrangler. The front axle needed a seal, and it wasn't going to be cheap. Upon meeting Darrell, we became friends. He suggested perhapls a thicker gear fluid to try to remedy the problem of the leak, but charged nothing. Later in the week, we took the Jeep in to go ahead and have the seal R & R. We paid very little compared to the dealership. 50% cheaper. The work came with a guarentee. I had him do the front brakes as well, seein' how he had the know how. I have had the Jeep in for more work, but I have NEVER had to take my vehicle back because of bad workmanship. Darrell always takes time to explain what everything is and how all the components work together. He also takes extra time to explain options. No matter what though, Lloyds transmission always comes through with awesome results for a rediculously low price. As far as competence, Darrell and his father, Lloyd, could explain transmissions from anything and everything with an engine. They are definitely a hidden pot of gold.

We are general repair shop in Tucson and we send out all internal differential, transfer case and transmission work that we don't do ourselves to Lloyds. Lloyds is tucked away and not well advertised, but they know their stuff and have a great reputation. Darryl and his dad are good to talk to, reasonably priced and very knowledgable. Lloyds is a shop that industry professionals know we can rely on for high quality, specialized work.

Lloyd and his son, Darrell, have an outstanding reputation. I took my Toyota 4 Runner 5 speed manual to them with problems shifting into first and third gear and the clutch popping out of gear. I was concerned that this would be a VERY expensive repair. I was relieved to see several Toyotas in the parking lot. They explained that all my troubles might be due to a deteriorated shifter grommit and they would start there. It solved everything! My Toyota shifts like years ago. They patiently answered all my questions. I will bring my Toyota to Lloyd's again. What a pleasure to find such knowledgable, honest mechanics.
