Anyone interested in getting together for some Mod and Tech day.
We can do some grilling also to feed the hungry helpers.

Seems like there are a bunch of folks that need help with mods or install.
Let get up some feelers here.
Basicly we really need a location that can accomindate @4-10? rigs.
Lets get this before the summer temp gets here.

Definitely in!
No more christenings to attend (I think?) to conflict with a meet.
I have been wrenching all my life, 45 years, and can give sound advise on mechanical & electrical issues.

I am in to help, eat, drink, cook or just be a general wise a$$
LOL
Where and when?
What should I bring?
Maybe I will have to buy something to install.

I have some Factory Rock Rails coming but the UPS man will not even get them in the door before I break out the tools and bolt them right on the FJ

I also have a factory AUX light switch and harness coming for my off road lights. I have one in already but the damn thing is only back lit so its hard to tell if the lights are on or off in the daytime, I have fried 2 sets of light covers because the F*$#@! lights were on. The only reason I knew they were on is because I saw the smoke from the melting light covers. What a PITA it was to get the remains of the melted cover off the lights. I am laughing about in now, but I was none to happy at the time.

I'd offer up our shop at my fathers in Southbury, CT. We have two large bays and a big driveway. If I clean it up, we can get two rigs in the garage and two behind them just outside. Plenty of parking, gas grill, room for coolers. Just need to get a date set. I wouldn't be available myself until the weekend after the July 4TH. Just throwing that out there. We have a compressor as well. It would actually probably benefit Capt. Rick as well. He can offer up some of his Poly Skids at a reasonable price with no shipping needed. Let me know what you think. It's exit 15 off of I-84 CT. About 5 minutes from the highway and there are two commuter lots I can collect people at to bring them to the house. Shop is the building behind my rig.

I'd be up for a meet as well. I just got my FJ last week so it's very virgin like...mods will hopefully follow. It would be nice to see others rigs and steal some good ideas. Looking into radio help initially. As a word or warning...I really can't help myself fixing stuff yet along offering suggestions to others but I am willing to learn and fetch tools for stuff if needed.

Sounds like an excellent Idea to me. I can help out with suspension lifts and bumper installs if we can come up with a date that works for everybody.:cheers:

We gotta find a place to hold mod day.

We also need a bigger crow bar to get Tai's lower shock eye over that front LCA lip.
That freakin spacer.

Thanks guys for helping me get my lift on. I'm amazed at how good of a mod the 883 + tp14 is! Not only is my truck level but the nose dive is pretty much gone! Another thing that I had noticed is that I can now see better out of the back window. The spare doesnt seem to block out the entire rear anymore.

Thanks for waking up early and come over to help us with our cars.

Siri, you guys had to be dying in the heat out there no? That's a tough way to work. I'm trying to get a date that works but right now I can't give a date until the third weekend in July. Unless we can pull enough people together for next Saturday. I have to double check. I'll check in later.
