Hey.............I can read the amount of views we get in a day, appreciate the interest. Post up ! I would love to fill the "Friends" section with people who have home grown built at night in a one car garage, budget builds. Yeah, I know, there are some high end shops out there that build some killer rigs, love to put your rigs on there too. I am just saying that all of us started someplace and we share a common interest. We like to wheel. I know EXACTLY what it is like to break it on Sunday and have to have it fixed by Monday to go to work. My first build oh sooooo many years ago was in a 2 car garage in the middle of dogtown. Yeah, the gunshots kept you from falling asleep under the rig. Point is, if you got it, and you wheel it, we would love to hear from you.
Speaking of vendors who have knowledge and quality parts, etrailer.com is just flat out the place to deal with on ANY type of trailer need. These guys rock, if you have a question on trailers they have an answer. I do NOT endorse anyone who has not proven themselves to be knowledgeable, have quality products, excellent service and a willingness to make sure you get what you need in a timely manner. GREAT experience with these guys. Not like the first time, it's every time.
Pictures and ............................wait for it.............videos ? Yeah, no kidding, hope to really start updating many many photos and actually get videos posted on the happenings here at the shop and the runs of late. One of us (not me) got a high end camera to do just that. Stay tuned, could get interesting.
4 Wheel Parts has put in a distribution center, warehouse, retail store in my area....................damn. WAY too easy to get parts now. Actually, pretty cool guys with really good knowledge. Dealt with them on some JK parts. Look forward to doing business there again. Helpful, knowledgeable and they HAVE THE PARTS YOU WANT ON HAND ! That, in and of itself is a huge benefit.
As time passes so do the "needs" of what you drive or even wheel. As such, I am extremely proud to announce that the Street TJ has passed on to T. A JK has been added to the posse of Jeeps that seem to hang around up here. Make no mistake, T has ALLOT of off road driving skill acquired from driving the TubeTJ. Uh, yeah, up to and including he knows the "roll over" point on that rig. To be sure, the Street TJ is no slouch, 44's, ARB's F/R, Belly up skid plate, SYE, WARN fuel tank skid, WARN rock sliders, Pro-Comp bumpers with REAL anchor points, PIAA's, full cage, Edge, Gibson, Toyo's. Courbeau's, Chro-Mo's, PSE, and a shit ton of other parts that I have forgotten about. Fact is, it wheels, but actually has good road manners for what it can do offroad. I could not be prouder than to see T get the Steet TJ.
There have been a few key people that have stepped up and been there through all of this. For that we are forever grateful. Craig, Tracy, Leon, Mike, Currie, E.Trailer, thanks guys, it has been much appreciated.
Starting on yet another evolution of the "build", holy crap, is it ever done ?
Had an interesting link sent to us the other day.........."Who built my Wrangler ?"
Simple, we did, yeah, that included completely redoing some REALLY ill conceived concepts and installations that were done by the "pro's"
After getting the suspension tuned to both flex and run at speed, it has been running VERY well this season. There have been a couple of areas that we have been avoiding, like limit straps..........just that, they "limit" the flex. In doing so we have wadded a few parts up. A thanks to Tom at Currie for his help. The sway bars made a world of difference, so far having avoided the need for air bumps. You don't know what needs attention till you have it fail.
