Here’s what some of our Boise, ID customers are saying about us:


My 2005 Chevy Avalanche had developed a in the rear end at high speeds. I took it to Jim's and they diagnosed the problem and let me know that until they were into the rear end, they wouldn't know for sure the extent of the repairs needed. After a day at Jim's they had replaced a couple of axle bearing that were damaged during an accident months earlier. The staff were professional and friendly and they didn't milk me for lots of extras. They under-promised, and over-delivered!.

I have been fighting a vibration on my GMC for 2 years. Multiple shops have attempted repair with no success. Took my GMC to Jim. He found the problem, a bent axle. Jim is honest, ethical and very reasonably priced. Thank you!

I have been using Jim's Drivetrain for a couple of years now. During this time they have performed the following service on my vehicles: Ball joints, u-joints, driveshaft balancing, track bar replacement, steering upgrade kit, and front and rear differential replacement w/limited slip. The work they perform here is excellent. No pressure repair work, never up sold any repairs, just quality repairs by honest people. I highly recommend this shop.

Jim and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I stopped by on a Friday afternoon you all then to look at my truck and give me a quote on a front driveline and they were bustling. They had my truck in a bay with 20 minutes and Jim gave my an array of possibilities to choose from. Love these guys. Oh yeah they built the rear driveshaft for my truck. Thing could push a tank and looked like a work of art.

These guys are the real deal. Do yourself a favor and give Jim's your business. They got my 1967 Chevelle 396 Super Sport back up and running after 18 years of sitting. New rear end, posi, brakes, sport suspension, this crew does it all and does it well. I will continue to go back just to hang out with them.

I've been working on my 1968 Dodge Mopar, however there are some things you should just pay someone to do it right. I wanted a limited slip Detroit True Track in the 8 3/4 rear-end. I called around and nobody sounded confident in doing the work except for Jim. When I dropped it off be apologize because he was a bit dirty. The work performed was excellent, thanks.

Honorable and Accurate! I was in town from out of state when my U-Joint went out. Being Sunday and a Toyota 4x4 no local shops wanted to touch the project but instead recommended Jim's. I sent my family home in a rental car, got a room and waited for Jim's to open. First thing Monday morning I pulled in and shared my story. Jim said he'd have it done that day if I could leave it. They even gave me a ride into town. An hour later Jim called to tell me my driveline was shot. We could look for a used one or...as luck might have it, Jim had a new driveline head (for a 20 year old truck) in stock. We decided to have him cut the old damaged one off and weld the new one on. This is not a task for amateurs. In a few hours my 4Runner was back on the road and I was heading for home. Estimates locally were $680 for new U-Joints. Jim did all that plus the welding and new driveline head for just over $500. The guy knew I was from out of town and stuck, he could have charged me anything. Honesty goes a long way with me and I've found my new undercarriage shop for life. Now to get that front locker installed! Thanks again Jim, you guys are a blessing!

The only place to go for drivetrain issues. Jim is personable, reasonable and super knowledgeable. Re-geared my Falcon to be more highway friendly. Couldn't be more pleased with his work!

B Williams Google Review


Honest and professional. Not for general mechanic work, just drivetrain. Recommended to me by big o.

Jim treated me right

Luke Patterson Google Review


Jim's Drivetrain is the kind of shop that is hard to find. From Jim, I have received nothing but genuine service, and honesty when it comes to what needs to be fixed. I will not take my vehicles to anyone but Jim. Whether it be building a new driveline, front end rebuild, or fixing a leaky transfer case, these guys will take care of you at a fair price, and even give you a courtesy ride if needed.

They inspected my truck for free and helped me set a plan in place to repair it. I would recommend their services to anyone looking for an honest company.

Brian Ellsworth Google Review


Just picked up my truck today after having the rear u joints replaced. When I picked it up, Jim told me that he had not only replaced the u joints, but also fixed a bent driveshaft, and also looked at the front drive shaft and found a couple of issues that he also fixed! His bill was within $30 of the original estimate even with the extra work he did! I also had him check the front suspension components since one of the bigger tire shops in the area told me I needed $850 of front end work. He looked, and said I did not need any work done, and that things were fine. Saved me a ton of money!!

Ive gone to other locations in the Valley and none of the compare to the experience I had with Jim's. Greatest place ive gone with actual customer service.

Michael Parks Google Review


10/23/13, unable to disconnect the REMCO Driveline Disconnect installed in our Ford F-150 Pick-up so the truck could be towed behind our Motorhome. The unit was locked up. We were set to do our Snowbird thing when this occurred. Luckily, referred to Jim's Drive Train Specialties. Spoke with Jim, they were very busy however he kindly took the time to take a look. He put the truck on a hoist and had his most experienced man with these devices solve the problem. Excellent service and a firm I heartily recommend.

These guys are awesome. The dealership was going to charge me 4x the price for same work. These guys are honest and work hard.

Fast service, great work and at a great price. What more can I say.

Thanks Guys - JS

Had a rebuilt transfer case put in my truck, which had a bad component due to a parts source which has since been dropped. Jim and his crew made it right, and quickly. Fair prices, too.

Jim's Drive Train is a small shop off of Chinden on 41st street. Jim was very helpful and did quality work on our truck and we were shocked at how little it cost. Great small business, I highly recommend.

Jim and his staff are very friendly. I have done business with him for the past 3 years. He has rebuilt a vintage corvette straight axle rear end for me with an Eaton posi-traction unit in it, done 3 custom drive shafts for me, and put an Auburn posi unit and brakes in the rear end of my vintage Belair. He has also helped remove the rattle/shimmy in my Suburban driveline that was occurring when driving over 55 MPH - smooth now. I honestly believe he is the best. He is very busy, but is known to work until midnight to get projects done for customers on occasion. He is a racer, and is well known in the Boise community. He is not the cheapest on the planet, but the best never is. I think his rates are reasonable considering the fact he is the only option in the Treasure Valley that does custom drive shafts locally. I have never had any problems with any of the work Jim's Drive Train has done. All rear ends and drive shafts have worked flawlessly. He is fairly meticulous at what he does. He is well networked, so if there is something he cannot do or does not have the time to do, he will give you the name, business card, and the point of contact at another shop. If I had time I would just hang out at the shop, but I work a lot and he is very busy, so I would say we have a friendly long term working relationship. I am confident that if I ran into him or any of his crew at Firebird raceway or even out grocery shopping, he would stop to say hello and ask about my wife and my various projects. Up next for Jim: We're going to have him do both the drive shafts on our custom 68 bronco!

Have known Jim for 30 plus years. The only place in all of Boise nampa caldwell area I would ever let work on my vehicles. Drive Lines to rear ends front ends they do it all. Jim goes above and beyond.

Willie L. Yelp Review


I didn't want to use Jim's Drive Train...My wife and I drove up from Utah to Boise - 350 miles overnight - for a medical emergency with our son. When we arrived at our hotel, the prop-shaft failed on our Subaru.

It was Sunday morning; nowhere open, so we had to wait until Monday.

Monday comes around, and we called the dealership. 'A complete replacement', they said, 'We can have the part here by Wednesday. It'll be fixed by Thursday'.

I called Jim's, just because there was noone else I could find in town. He sourced the part, had it overnighted, and installed it by midday Tuesday. They even dropped me off and picked me up from my hotel. Fantastic customer service, great work, and excellent quality parts and prices. If I was nearer, I'd certainly use him again.
