Where do you work on your jeep?

So pretty soon ill be moving to an apartment here in Stafford which, as most do, discourage you from doing any vehicle work in the parking lots. Was wondering what places yall have done work before when in this situation, minus a buddy's driveway as thats an obvious choice and I dont know anyone around me.

Not to say I wouldnt offer a case of cold ones in exchange for a new buddy

I don't know how far Stafford is from Richmond, but you're welcome to come use my driveway anytime. I'd be glad to help you out with whatever.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dip****s.

Unfortunately its a pretty good distance. For just an oil change, too far. For bigger projects though, i dont mind a nice drive. Much appreciated

Lucky for me I work at a dealership now and I can use the lifts and shop tools on Saturdays. If I don't need the lift or don't need to weld I just go to my uncle's house a couple miles from my apartment.

There's also an abandoned road with a cul de sac at the end right behind my apartment I used to just drive to and work on whatever there. Used to be the end of a road that's still used, but a new highway they built about 12 years ago cut it off so now it's just got open access from the end of the apartments but just dead ends at the woods. Had the cops called on my a few times by people who couldn't mind their own business but after a couple quick questions by cops nothing ever came of it.

That's my only real complaint about my apartments in general. We're right on the edge of a really upper middle/upper class neighborhood and they named the apartments after them. Because they're cheap we get a lot of people moving in thinking they're rich now and call the police constantly over the dumbest ****. Used to have neighbor the next apartment over that would call them on me nightly for having my music "too loud" and by too loud I mean you couldn't hear it in the next room in my apartment, let alone his. He'd just watch for me to get home, wait 30 minutes then call the cops at like 6 PM.

Thread is a little old but if you're still on the hunt I recommend the Home Depot parking lot.
Great amenities. Toilets, water fountains, usually oversized parking lots mean you can almost always find a secluded corner around the side of the store. Their inventory is also pretty helpful. They carry rags, spray 9, turpentine, socket sets, clamps, tarps, etc.
I changed my brakes there this past week and much to my delight, nobody called the cops or even said anything at all to me.
Would recommend.
Oh man, and some of them even have covered parking decks!
