If my math is correct, besides buying all of the DNR tags and broken parts, we could probably get by with $100 or so in gas which surprises me.'

I am up for it if we can get enough people. As long as we have enough Jeepers to stick together and help eachother out, we're golden.
Myself and the misses could most likely come along and act as tail gunner. The XJ is very capable and i should have my new bumpers and winch by then in case any of yall wanna get real crazy

The TJ is heading to the shop tomorrow if anyone has a 231 t-case or dana 30 lying around you wanna donate let me know. I am in need of them for the jeep. JK on the donating parts but if anyone wants to tag along to my shop in Stacy MN in the next couple months to do some wrenching let me know. I am a very capable mechanic and always willing to teach if your willing to lend a set of hands.

Where is there a pull r parts around the metro? I am kinda new to MPLS and not up on some of these things. I work in Bloomington and see your in savage. Maybe we could hook up on a weekend and go look around a bit. I also need a XJ Front drive shaft to complete my SYE set up.

rhutch, I like it. Hopefully Grant's (aircruiser) will look something like that in the near future.

For friday, I can take it off if we are going to u-pull. Who all is going?

Why would we go in Jeff's truck? There isn't room for 3, vs taking your Jeep there is room for 5, and we never take your XJ anywhere being you are afraid to drive it.
