He said that you should be able to post, you just might not have gotten the approval email. If you can't let me know.

Glad to see more Ames people on here! I see several Jeeps zipping around town, but haven't had a chance to meet up for beers with anyone yet. I'm on the north side...

Hi,

Just joined the JF to say hello to folks in central iowa. Looking at joining JOCCI soon to network with locals. Can anyone suggest local expert on lift kit install and driveline setup. Possibly swapping out RE lift control arms for Currie or Rokmen along with rear DS soon. Any input is appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

If your looking to pay someone my only suggestion would be Luke at frontier4x4, but I believe he is in between homes right now and isn't currently taking on any jobs. Don't take my word though. I would give him a call or shoot him an email. WWW.frontier4x4.com.

If you want help doing it post up on JOCCI and you should get plenty of people willing to lend a hand and a garage if you need it.

Thanks,

I met Luke and he is definately in process of moving. He was kind enough to give me a few pointers. Still, would feel better about finding someone to help lead me through the process and avoid problems or mistakes. I appreciate your response and look forward to meeting you and other locals around this summer.

All meetings are on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. The meetings start at 7, but people start showing up around 6 to stand around and talk.

Also if anyone is interested we meet at BWW the Tuesday before and the Tuesday after the meeting. It's non club related and a chance to get to know the members outside of the meeting setting.

The next meeting is May 17.

Okoboji Grill
8481 Birchwood Court
Johnston, IA 50131-2782
(515) 276-5255

Just North of Interstate 35/80 - 86th St Exit on the East side of 86th one block North and then East of the Kum & Go Gas.

Look for all the Jeeps, people start arriving a little after 6:00 pm for the lousy food, lame jokes, and boring stories.
Meeting starts at 7:00 pm.
