Looking for a mechanic in Central NJ

That's familiar with the 7.3 X
I have one here, 183K that's been sitting for 3 years.
Unhooked the fuel supply and tried a quick crank just to be sure it's not seized, it isn't
I'd like to do a complete overhaul and get her back on the road but I'd like to do it without getting killed
Not looking for bargain basement, but I have been raked over the coals by dishonest shops and would like to avoid that like the plague.

First choice would be someone that could come to my house, I'd really like to be involved and learn something.

It is a old list from a very long time ago back when we had a help network here on the forum, but there are two on this list that might be able to give you a hand or point you into the right direction. If you do contact them tell you where you got their names and numbers.

I would say that the list is at least 15 years old if not more.
