Way back in Mexico, our Jeep Gladiator suspension began making noise over bumps and the problem has seemed to worsen recently. More urgently, we lost our awning to a tornado in Honduras and needed help importing a new one to Central America. Since we basically live outside, an awning is essential during rainy season! As we asked around for help with both of these issues, we kept hearing about TJM Costa Rica, located in San Jose.
We contacted Rolando at TJM and he had a solid system in place for importing items from the United States. OK4WD, the primary Alu-Cab distributor in the U.S., shipped a new awning to Miami. From there, Rolando was able to import it to Costa Rica. We’re so grateful to everyone pulling for us and our journey around the world.
This week’s video is all about Eric’s visit to TJM. Rolando diagnosed and addressed the suspension issue, installed our new awning, and helped us decide whether we should rivet our license plates for extra security. You’ll get to see behind the curtain what it’s like to get mechanical work done in Costa Rica!
What do you think? Do you have any questions or suggestions for us? What do you think about TJM Costa Rica based on the video? We always appreciate your feedback.
We have one month left on our Costa Rica visa. We’ll be leaving the San Jose area at the end of August, then we’ll be back in the Jeep exploring other spots throughout Costa Rica (including the Caribbean coast).
Panama is next! To be honest, we’ve been pretty consumed with our Costa Rica adventures and various projects we’re working on. So we haven’t started travel planning for Costa Rica yet. What should we see? Let us know in a comment.
