Thats the point of the party.. most of the people who are installing stuff dont have much mechanical knowledge. they are there to learn.. and save A LOT of money instead of paying some shop to install it all at $100+ an hour. If you have parts you want to install.. cool.. bring em.. theres going to be certified mechanics on hand. If you dont have any parts to install.. you can still swing by and meet a bunch of cool people who like to wheel often... and it wouldnt hurt to pay attention to whats going on for your own benefit. As of right now.. There are 4 different lifts being installed on a variety of Jeeps.. a snorkel if it comes in in time.. and some rewiring planned.

We can try to get as many of them installed as we can. Like I said.. we have 4 other Jeeps getting lifts put on so we cant have one jeep taking up a single bay all day.. But I am sure we can get a lot of them on.

How will it work, how will people work on their jeeps? What's the set up like?

I am really interested but I don't want to start a project and not have enough time to complete it

Is there any room left? I have a Teraflex leveling kit and some suspension bolts I'd like help with.

Sounds like a lot of fun - it'd be great to meet some fellow Jeepers!

Is it possible that there will be time for one more lift to be installed on an 87. If not i have other things that need to be installed that doesn't take up a lot of time.

I'll definitely be attending. I will bring the following to get installed.

99+ Intake Manifold
Header
703 Injectors
Valve Cover Gasket
PCV and New Grommets
Front Tow Hooks


Should be a fairly easy list to knock out

There is a possibility for time for another lift. Its just a matter of how much people work and not drink beer and eat! and how late we want to stay. I am going up Friday night and we are rewiring my Jeep and putting on the new Rugged Ridge Snorkel so Ill be able to help all day Saturday with others Jeeps, minus the time Ill be smoking the brisket. Like I said.. the earlier people get there the better off we will be. If we dont get a chance to put on everyone's parts this time around.. I am sure we will have at least one more this year. I am certainly excited for the party. Sorry it took me so long to respond.. I was on vacation.
