Welcome to the Forum Ginger. If you hang with this for a while you'll be expert in no time. There are a few guys who live in JAX who are members. Wait a bit until they post... surely they can give you some good advice.

We love pics!!

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Welcome to the forum.


I'm out of the Tallahassee area but I have a few contacts in Jax, I'll put out some feelers to see what I can come up with.

Careful your character's showing

Thanks any advice is appreciated . . . Otherwise my other option is opening up the Yellow Pages
to the Auto Repair section and throw a Dart!

GO TO HAPPY TRAILS 4x4 NEAR MAYPORT!!!! All they do is specialize in Jeeps, from full restorations to changing a light bulb. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. I would not take my jeep anywhere else to get Jeep related things done.

However, if you need an exhaust place, go to JR's Muffler in Orange Park. Will not get better work for the price! Cost me $60 (+ cost of flowmaster) to run all new exhaust pipe from the manifold out the back.

They Cant Stop Me, Even If They Stopped Me.
Car History from 1st to Present:
-1997 Mustang V6 (Sold); -1999 Chevrolet Blazer (Sold); -2001 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 (Sold); -1999 Chevrolet Z28 Camaro; 1982 Jeep CJ-7

Welcome. I live in St Johns County. Luckily so far I've been able to conquer my dilemma's with the help of friends. There is a Jeep specialty place that advertises on craigslist that's located downtown. I don't know their reputation though. They post parts on CL pretty often. Morris 4x4 is a good online source for parts.
