Lawn mowers – that’s where Jody Gunter, Ford Certified and ASE Master Technician, first made a name for himself. He was known for bringing dead lawn mowers back to life before he was 12 years old and began working wonders with Mustang race engines when he was about 13 where his reputation for precision & hard work really took off. He was racing at 15, primarily in his 1966 Mustang Coupe and many other Mustangs he’s owned over the years and has always had a hot little Mustang or Ford Diesel truck he loved to work on. He first worked at a Ford dealership when he was 16. After deciding to try his hand at a few other jobs, he was never as satisfied as when he was turning wrenches so he returned to the automotive world per customer requests & his own love for fixing things. He went back to a Ford dealership in 2004, while continuing work at home in his own shop. He left the dealership in the Spring of 2005 when side work at his home garage began building up to full time work. Since then, Jody has been working on his own, and continually gaining ground for working hard, great customer service, and doing the job right, the first time.   
In the Spring of 2008, Gunter Specialty, LLC was born in a new 7,000sq.ft. shop on Highway 6 in Valley Mills. The business has continued to grow rapidly with mainly word-of-mouth referrals. While we still see a good bit of gas vehicles, the work has become primarily light-duty & medium-duty diesel trucks – working on everything, ground-up, bumper-to-bumper. 
We pride ourselves on our reputation and work hard every day to continue improving it. We greatly appreciate our customers and couldn’t be prouder of the long, though at times difficult, journey we’ve been on to get to where we are today. We strive to be the best around in every aspect and to always get the job done right, ourselves, the first time!
