wrenching party this weekend?

hey guys.... well its that time.

the long anticipated return from deployment for me.

i will be returning home on thurs and have a couple parts i would like to install on my '92 yj.

i have a d30 spartan lunchbox locker with new SOLId diff cover to put in. anyone have experience with installing any Lunchbox lockers? anything extra i need? just new fluid to put in?

next project. i have an advanced adapters SYE and hopefully true nuetral plate to install. i still need to acquire an XJ shaft. what else do i need for the SYE install? what do i need to shorten the shaft the proper way?

i also have a warn m8000 winch to install. all i need for that is a winch plate. should be a no brainer install.

i have a garage filled with tools (all of the basic hand tools, chopsaw, 4 1/2" grinders, HH 140 welder) and will have a fridge filled with beer and some pizza or BBq could be arranged.

i can do fri, sat or sunday. any of those days good for anyone here?

even if you have no experience to offer feel free to come over and enjoy some beers and talk jeep or work on whatever project you have.

-chris

If I'm not scheduled for work I'll drop by and lend what hand I can if you aren't too terribly far. My poor rig is spewing oil onto the exhaust like crazy c.c

It was sure nice to stop on by, chew the fat (pizza ) have a few beverages, and get your locker installed. Good job by all.

Real nice to have met your buddy Rob too.
