02 Jeep.. your mail box is full so I couldnt reply to ya.. but this is what I sent..
"Well some of us will be there at 10. Most people i think are plannin gon coming around noon. We will be there until at least 6. Which lift did you get? We are putting a rock krawler 2.5 max travel lift on a jk first thing.. shouldnt take too long. We put a 3.5 inch rough country lift on a JK 2 weeks ago in roughly an hour. So its very possible we could get it done that day. The JK we are lifitn is waiting for his tires to come in since they are on back order. Im one of those people who prefer to get it done and deal with the goofiness instead of having to wait to do it later."

Sorry about that, I emptied it. I ended up going with the Rough Country N2 4". I'll do my best to make it over. Would I need to bring my own tools? I have pretty much everything I'll need but I would have to find everything in the garage first. LOL And thanks for the invite, I appreciate it. DJ

I would bring as many of your own tools as you can. With so many people there and not knowing a lot of people real well (no offense) they dont want anyone running off with their expensive tools. Seeing how a lift is one of the more intensive projects we would be doing.. we would end up using the impacts and all of that and have your jeep up on a lift.. but if you dont get your jeep in right away.. or the lifts are all taken when you show up.. we could get a head start. With how many bodies are going to be there more than likely there will be 4 guys on each vehicle getting stuff done.

I completely understand about the tools. I'll try my best to make it over there but have to see how things go. DJ

hey sorry to post all late and off topic. I'm in Lincolnshire, a little south of you guys. Anybody planning anything? I bought another JKUS that I have to build from the ground up (lift, tires, body armor). I had a 2 door JK that I only took hunting, to sand pits in central Wisco, and on mud runs downhill. No rocks and no serious flexing. I had 32's on a BB lift. If I'm not too much of a n00b, could I join this crew?

and when you wanted me i came to you
and when you wanted someone else i withdrew
and when you asked for light i set myself on fire
and when you wanted blood i cut my veins
and when you wanted love i bled myself again


then a vision came to me
when you came along
i gave you everything but then you wanted more


I am a slave to grunge \m/

Which group? I've seen a bunch of lifted Jeeps running around recently and am always looking for new folks to meet up with. I'm up by 21 & 45.
