Wj Roll call: where are all the SoCal WJ's at???

I know there are a good amount of you on the WJ forum posting, so just thought I'd get us all together for some wheeling, meet & greets, photoshoots, etc.

Post up with your location and pic of our WJ. And if you're on Facebook, join our group as well: http://www.facebook.com/groups/socalwj/

I'm in LA (Hawthorne)
I got it a month ago put a 4" lift and 32" km2's, not quite ready to go wheeling. I need to relocate the wiper fluid resivoir, a little more trimming and change out the t-case and diff fluids. After the holidays I'm defiantly down for some wheeling!

Good to see other WJ's in SoCal, especially with mods. Don't forget to join the SoCal WJ facebook group as well (assuming you use facebook), which is growing and quite active. Lots of discussion of trails, future events, maintenance & repairs, and of course various mods and upgrades. Don't worry if you're not on Facebook, i'll be sure to cross post anything interesting here.

Here is my old 1999 Laredo, also on a 6in long arm lift with 33's. This was from Big Bear a couple years ago.

I kinda regret going with a 4" lift, I want to go a bit higher now. I though about adding spacers but I don't want compromise the ride quality any more, o well. I'm looking for some rock slidders, do you guys know of a place around here that fabricates slidders?

I've got spacers on the front of mine and I don't think it changes the ride quality, but thats my 2 cents. As far as Fab work, I haven't had any done myself to personally recommend but I believe a few guys on Orange county roll call does Fab work.

I would ask on these two threads and you'll probably get some help:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f317/...ounty-1251477/

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f317/...county-776306/

AND you can check Craigslist because I've seen a lot of Local shops advertise on there as well.

i run Turbo City's now discontinued Rock-It sliders on my WJ. Other than my trussed JK D44 rear with coilover mounts done by 4 Wheel Specialties in North Hills (SFV), I haven't really had any custom fab work done on my Jeep, so can't really recommend anyone. But I'd be curious to hear other's suggestions. If anything, you can just design it yourself via the links Mall Rated provided, and take plans to a metal shop for cutting and welding.

It is an early version of a WJ without the bulging sides with which to pick up nasty rock scrapes.

I like that look of your jeep! mine is nothing special! only a two inch lift, clear coat peeling off, a small dent in the rear, and a few issues still remaining after five years of chasing a ghost and a few grand...

But I am finding some renewed like for my jeep. in fact, I just reinsured it a week ago, but haven't paid the tags on it in about five years... we should have snow Tuesday night so having my jeep running is a nice thing!
