Be careful about working on your vehicle in base housing. Depending on the rules, you cant have a vehicle "appear" to be in pieces. I had the rear axle out of my jeep for 2 days and my squadron got a call about it. I had to have the jeep "appear" to be in running order before monday. Needless to say, it was a long weekend. So just keep in mind. The rules in base housing.

I have done alot of work at my house and never had any problems. Just keep it cleaned up on inspection day and try to keep it not real white trashy. Only guys i know that have problems are those with bad neighbors or do stuff in the middle of the night.

You can thank one of my former co-workers for some of the rules about working in housing. Supposedly, here, and possibly all other bases will have rules against working on vehicles in base housing with the privatized base housing stuff being implemented. I live off base, so I have no clue on the truth to the rumor. I'm just going on what I have heard from higher ups.

The one here at Vance AFB is really nice. They aren't really supposed to help, but they usually do. Our guys here locally are really in to Jeeps as well so it's nice to have the repository of wisdom even for stuff that I have the tools to tackle in my garage. Plus things are just sooo much nicer sometimes if you have a lift and don't have to work on your back (sts).
