Pasadena and San Gabriel locals?

Hey,
I really enjoy working on my Jeep as well as helping out friends. I have been living here in Pasadena for a few years and my closest wheeling buddy lives up in Castaic, owns his own business and is hard to schedule outings with. I am looking for some locals who wouldn't mind getting together once in a while for coffee and even helping each other out with some wrenching. I have lots of tools and some friends that are machinists and welders. I am a very handyman myself and good with car audio and various electronics. I just enjoy good friends and helping them with projects. I used to do a lot more dirt biking than Jeeping, but a recent motorcycle accident has changed my life and I have a feeling I will be doing more Jeeping than anything.
If ya have some time and would like to make a friend, look me up.

Cool. I see by your signature that you can see a whole lot better while backing up than I can. I really need to do something about that myself. The cheesy little ad on lights I have do not do much. I guess having tinted windows doesn't help either. LOL
If you are interested in getting together and talking about some wrenching tasks, PM me and we can exchange some contact info. I am usually home from work around 4:00 or so. I am also addicted to Starbucks.

Hey guys, Its up to you if its too far. If you are willing to get out and investigate some new wheeling friends. What kind of mods are you guys looking at doing next. Mine are Winch and bumper mods. Also thinking of upgrading my fog lights to HID bulbs too.

im getting 35s, so i am going to be looking for a dana 44 rear axle out of an xj or tj, gunna build it up, replace all the seals and everything, maybe a locker if i can afford it and re gear it if needed ( anything under 3.73 ). which would mean i will need to re-gear my front axle cause i am running on 3.07s now. The order for the tires is already made, just a waiting game to get them now. so this mod is on the top of my to do list. next is adding to my roll cage.

Didn't they have a decent roll bar back in 92? Are you planning on rolling it?
