Exactly.

I have a pretty small, tight knit group of buddies that work in this fashion
out here by me in nassau. However, why not spread the wealth! lol.
Weve got a full time mechanic. a full time welder. another guy whos a jack of all trades who has INFINATE amounts of experience and knowldge when it comes to wiring and electronics. Im pretty good when it comes time to fabricating and being creative .(Im an architect).

only thing we DONT have is a friend that REALLY knows how to set gears. It let to me having to pay almost a grand to have my dana 30 done.


Check out and Comment my build thread!!!

Nice to hear there is a good group of guys around. Wish i had a gear guy also. I tend to fall into the jack of all trades catagory also but gears is not one of them.

Smithtown here.

Deff would like to see a long island based group going. Kind of a jack of all trades. I learn from experience. I have a couple friends with off roading but only one with a WJ.
Hopefully we'll find some more on here
