Jeep Club and floor repair recommendation in Massachusetts

Hi all,

New to the jeep scene but looking to jump in as quick as possible. Couple questions I have for those in the New England (specially Southern Worcester County area).

1.) Any recommended Jeep club you would have that is family oriented? I would mostly wheel with my wife and two small children. No crazy stuff but always open to new challenges

2.) Any recommendation to a good floor guy who can take a look at my 1993 YJ? Floors are overall 90 percent perfect except two areas. Small area under the pedals on drivers side floor pan riser and the other is a soft spot on rear bolt of drivers seat riser.

In process of getting the jeep up to shape ASAP as I'd like to add a BDS lift (probably 2") plus get it on to 32" tires

Thanks in advance,

Chris
Blackstone, MA

Hey Chris, welcome to the Jeep scene!

Since I refuse to be completely biased because everyone is different, check out the link below!! There's information and links to the websites of many different clubs in Ma that are members of the NEA4WDC. All are excellent clubs that are definitely worth checking out! What you might want to do is go on a couple different public runs with a few different clubs to see which suits you best. http://www.nea4wd.org/clubs/index.cf...uv&topic_id=40

Personally, I've found a home with MassKrawlers. It's a newer club which has about 30 members, many of which have children of various ages. We believe in a club that is made for the members and by the members, and try to include the them in almost any decisions made within the club. The link to our site is here: http://mikedijital.us/masskrawlers/index.php

If you decide to check out our site, look up Limitless Iron Works under the "Recommended Vendors" section of the forum. It's a custom fabrication shop which is fully set up to get just about any job done and it's fairly closeby since it's only in Gardner. The owner Eric is a member who might be able to help you out with your floor issues

Clubs....

Chris,

I bought an old CJ and joined these guys:

http://www.baystatejeepers.com/

On the floor pans, they are very easy to repair, so you really won't (shouldn't) need a Jeep specialist. Without seeing them, it could be a repair where:

- patch panels (sheet metal) is cut to match, grind out the old and in with the new (welded or riveted and sealed)

- new OEM panels are put in where the rotted ones are now. Cut to fit, paint to match

It just depends on what your expectations are for the Jeep. Are you wanting to fix for safety/DMV sticker or are you wanting to fix it up "nice"?

NOTE-*DEFINITELY FIX ANYTHING THAT WOULD ALLOW EXHAUST FUMES INTO THE CAB, IF YOU ARE RUNNING A ROOF!!*

If it's not you daily driver, maybe someone who can do it "on the side". My CJ passes inspection and is NOT my daily driver. The floors are rusty and have been patch paneled. I just drive it and have fun.

Maybe check CL for tires/rims....there's always lots of Jeep stuff listed.

Have any pictures of the floors? Myself and a friend may be able to help out for a few bucks.
