There currently is no sign on the front of our shop. I am not sure if I will have one up by then or not. For a frame of reference, Gulf ct is across from the Jeep dealer on Westgate. You turn on Gulf at the Exxon gas station. The first building you see on the right has box 2 be fit on the one end. We are on the opposite end of the same building. The suite numbers are under the front door canopies and barely visible.

Okay, so I have 1200 feet of red 1/4" id air hose type tube. I know others are using tubing more like from the arb but I bet some smart folks can figure a way to do the scuba mod using this. There is plenty to go around. I just need enough to do on board air at some point.

At this point I'm planning on coming for this! If nothing else I'll be watching and maybe providing an extra pair of hands.

I would love to get the body mount chop done, or at least see one done so I can do it myself. I am still hoping I can make it out there.

Unfortunately a good friend of out is going in for a rough surgery on the 17th so I will be here helping out as much as I can. I hope you all have a great time and take lots of pics of the mods completed.

I am going. I would like to pull my front coilovers and adjust my 5100s to the highest setting. I am also going to remove my rear sway bar. May rotate tires, paint brake calipers and if I feel froggy, do the body mount chop if I can get instruction/help.

I will for sure need help with the coil removal/adjustment. I am renting a spring compression tool to bring.

Who is bringing donuts? 1...2...3...not it!

I wont be able to make it to this, sorry in advance! but for those that want or need a body mount chop, I can try to set aside a few days in March to come up to Raleigh and help you out in this area. The way I do take a little longer but well worth the effort. I can bring my welder grinder and such. I just ask that you supply the flap disk, cut off wheels and steel to box it back in. All on all i would figure on a couple of hours per truck. At least 45 minutes a side, also get some 3"x3/16" steel plate.

lol, not quite. Mosh pit 4yrs ago actually. Caught an elbow and it relocated my nose to the side of my head. I reset it myself but havent been able to breathe properly out of it since. Getting it fixed since insurance covers it.

Thanks and Leigh says Hi as well Smile

I hope there are more folks than that...I'm not sure how much help I will be to anyone else. I have limited knowledge about what I want to do to mine so I don;t want to break someone elses FJ.

I thought David was coming to get his Firestik installed.
