That's really cool of them to do that. I don't have mods planned but I'll try to stop by for sure.

yep.. Kyle Wenzel is a buddy of mine that I pretty much wheel with every time I go. We have been talking about doing this for a long time. Most shops charge an arm and a leg to get any work done so we figured we would do this and see how good of a turn out we get. Lately it seems like the offroad community is getting even more segregated than normal and this is a first attempt to kind of change that. I dont have any difficult parts to put on.. but I'm treating it as more of a meet n greet kind of thing. It also is a good chance for people to see other peoples mods up close in case they are thinking of buying something soon.

thats cool. Even if there isnt much on the market for ya.. there may be a couple guys there that have fabbed up their own sliders and skids.. at the very least you can maybe talk to them... and meet some local guys to wheel with.

(...deep breath...humbling moment here) Ok, I figure we all have to start somewhere so I'm hoping that y'all will take this in that spirit... I bought some new A-Arms for the KJ and have almost nil wrenching skills, but WANT to learn. If it's not totally out of line for me to ask, would any of you all be willing to help me/teach me? I won't be offended if you all say no since I'm still new to this forum. Either way, I look forward to meeting you all and checking out the Jeeps you all have built!

Thats the point of this party man. So everyone learns.. makes some new wheeling buddies... If you have them already.. theres a good possibility we could get them put on at the party. I am not sure how long that would take.. but as of right now we are at like 12 or 13 jeeps going to be there. Obviously we wont be working on all the jeeps at once.. so your looking at 3 to 4 bodies on a vehicle at one time.. we should be able to fly through stuff.

If you leave work right at 4 you could prolly make the last hour or so. Then at 6 is when we are going for pizza and beer at a place called Anastashias in Waukegan. Then there are some of us going out bar hoping afterwards if you were up for it. Youd still have plenty of time to come hang out at least and meet some people to wheel with.

I'd like to swing by. I've got a new stock JK and no plans for it yet, but I'd like to meet people who know more of what they're doing and get some ideas.

I'm gonna try to swing by if I get back in town early enough. I also have some extra parts I can donate that are lying around that I'll throw in a box and bring if anyone needs them ... and extra set of 1999 TJ mirrors, a full set of stock lug nuts, the housing and mainshaft - parts left over from when I added my SYE, my old driveshaft, and maybe a Teraflex spare tire extension bracket. They've all been sitting in a box with no activity on Craigslist. lol If anyone needs them, let me know.

Thats nice of you to offer parts. if you feel like bringing them.. go for it. I was going to bring some parts I have for sale but I am going to be struggling for room seeing I have to do a little moving as well so I am just going to make a list and if anyone wants some of it we can make arrangements for a later date.
