well.. we said 11.. but getting there at 9:30 or 10am wouldnt hurt. there are 3 lifts we can use... but we try to only use 2 lifts at a time and keep the 3rd bay for the easy stuff stuff depending on weather.. being it too hot.. or like last time.. snow. 7 hours is a lot of time.. and last time we installed a rock krawler 2.5" max travel kit in an hour and 15 minutes without any issues. when I get there in the morning I set up my laptop and basically make a schedule of who is going into what bay according to what time people get there.. basically a first come first serve basis... and i try to spread it out so one of the mechanics isnt putting on all the lifts while the other ones are just doing brakes.. or things like that. Its kind of hard to plan.

Besides tools (which I have a limited amount of), should we bring break cleaner and stuff like that?


Any other stuff that we should bring?

Well I have a vacuum leak somewhere. I jsut found out that my HVAC only blows out of my defrost vents.

So here's what I've researched. Cruise control not working and HVAC blowing through defrost only is a sign of a vacuum leak. Where is my vacuum leak, I have no idea. I cannot figure it out.

yep.. we got it done last night.. it was just a bunch of tiny screws and making sure everything got sealed up. after most people left we ended up playing beer pong and working on travis's jeep until 2am. Let me know how the leak comes out. might just be a case of retracing your steps and making sure everything is connected well.
