Diesel Service in Van?

I hate going to dealerships. Looking for a good diesel specialist in the Greater Vancouver area. My truck is a Dodge but if a shops rep is good I don't care if they specialize in another brand.

Would like to find somewhere to go for regular maintenance, parts, etc. Anyone have any suggestions?

I'm not sure of any smaller diesel shops besides BD diesel out in abbotsford

But I've been using Embassy Truck and trailer for my F450 and from what I've seen, they did good work on it.

Also, I'm probably going to take my International 4300 to Midtown Truck Service on E.Georgia as they are certified for internationals and are open till 12am for service

FWIW, I drive BD diesel in abby everyday on my way to school and they've always got decent trucks parked there. And they have a dyno.

Abbotsford Autotech is just off Mt.Lehman and they do pretty good diesel work.
