yeah I am planning on getting the 4.0L ready to go. He needs long arms, a rear bumper and new ball joints, so until that is fixed and ready to go, the niner has the duties of driving me to the meet and greets but its a nice rid though

Any updates on the ZJ man? Did Tim happen to give you any club stickers while you were at the meet and greet in January?

5.9L is going well. Ordered a steering stabilizer for it. Got the smoked turn signals installed. Planning on ordering new tires soon once the tax return comes in the mail and a K&N intake system to get rid of the dumb circle filter that the previous owner installed, other then those and a couple other things, its coming together the way I want it to. My main focus is the other ZJ though, got to order IRO long arm upgrade for the front, their Over the Knuckle steering and then the rear bumper from Kevin's Offroad, cant wait for that prerunner style rear bumper, so I can stop using the high lift as a bumper, lol.
On the club side, we got some new swag coming out soon and we have windshield banners available now as well. Let me know if you want anymore stickers and I can pick some up for you or just give them to you next tme I see ya. You planning on coming to the Cliff's in March for our first run?

For one color they will be $25.00 and if you wanted 2 colors they will be $35.00. Seems like a lot but the banner I had on my dodge ram way back in the day was around that price. I would recommend going to them to have them put it on so if they mess up, they have to fix it at no charge. I planning on getting one on the niner and I'll have to find a spot on the 4.0L, might have to remove the 4Locked film. I'll ask Tim about the stickers, how many do you want?
