Thanks. Haven't wheeled or driven it for about a year so I'm not sure about the income part.

sounds like my TJ... built it, went on a 10 month camping trip in the desert, and then came back and somebody offered me about what I had into it so I sold it. Probably the worst decision i've ever made too...

They are great! Wouldn't let anyone else work on my jeep. He stands by his work and I don't think you will find anyone who will say anything bad about his quality of work. I highly recommend using adrenaline for all your work.

OK…….

I spent this morning at Adrenaline Off Road to talk to Eric and Jeff about my Jeep and get thing ready for work to begin on next Tuesday.

We laid out all the parts and double checked inventory. We came across couple issues.
  • Currie sent one rear rotor with wrong bolt pattern
  • We are missing a set of RK coil mounts
  • Redneck Ram owes us a pitman arm

Jeff, well get these issues worked out on Tuesday.
