Personally if I want something, I pull reviews and pics online. Then I search for the best prices, then I order it, wait for brown santa and then buy a 6 pack and spend the day destressing about bs while I install or repair. Simple as that. Health benefits understood, I'll call a friend or take my sweet time. As long as it aint your DD and you have a garage you can do that. If it's your DD and you park on the street, well, that's another story altogether.

Although I feel for you (about your health) I always say its best to 'do it yourself' or have someone help you on the work process. Places like ORW and 4Whparts are in the BUSINESS to make money. They don't really care about the finished product so working your jeep yourself is always best. Take a look at your invoice and see how much they charged you for a shop rag... talk about rip-off.

In San Diego I have seen a good number of fellow Jeepers have offer (and conducted) for jeep parties where someone has their jeep repaired and the owner has to pay for the beverages (beer) and pizza

Whom is doing the next Jeep party?????

Jeep party sounds awesome. I think I might be done with major mods for a while though. Thanks guys for all the good ideas. :-)

Don't look at products or builds online. Don't go jeeping and don't drive it. That way you won't want or convince yourself that you "need" anything. It really is an addiction in every definition of the word.

What's your thoughts on M.I.T. in El Cajon. Seemed to be very knowledgable and friendly, the exact opposite of what I found at ORW where it seemed I was bothering them asking questions.

Never used MIT but have heard all good things about them. Chris Boyer of the DSC radio show had his scout worked on there.

That's good to hear, they seemed like really good people to work with. Is that Demo open to all, or only the jeep club?

Jeff & Karen Sugg (owners of MIT) have been a SoCal cornerstone as far as offroading & working on Jeeps for many years. I have used them in the past going back to ~1995, but not lately except to inquire about specialty parts.

Jeff is who initially came up with the idea of installing an SYE in SWB Jeeps and he has his own SYE Kit (I use to run one in m y YJ). Businesses saw the potential of his product & shortly started a frenzy of copying it. He has had many products copied by "big business".

There reputation is like many offroad shops - it goes up & down as employees change. Jeff is who did my gears & ARB's in my old axles. He did a fantastic job.

Open to all, just respond to the JustRuns notice, that way they get a head count.
