TBA I am going to give everyone a call tomorrow after I know exactly what'll be goin on for sure. PM me your number again, and I'll make sure to give you a call. maybe I'll even post up under meets and greets/wrenching, incase anybody else wants to stop by. I'm gonna be doing some control arm fab work while we're there, so I'll have the welder fired up if you need anything bird shit-ted together. I have a pitman arm puller floating around the shop somewhere, but bring yours just incase.

I'm gonna get his XJ up on the frame rack and pull that bumper straight. I think by the time we cut up his wheelwells, he might need a cage. He said it's pretty rusty. flares might be all that's holding her together! :?

I'll give you a call tomorrow, but as long as we can get started fairly early, it shouldn't be a problem. How early can you be up and at em? I don't think it'll take us more than a couple hours, but we should give it an extra hour just in case. I figure noon or 1 and we should be just fine.

nope, no tools. we'll be all set, and if you're up for noon, we'll have plenty of time to fix up you exhaust. I need to track down my pitman arm puller, but lance said he'd bring his just in case. I'm just gonna post up in wrenching tomorrow afternoon with specifics, and we'll go from there.

OK guys, I'll be in the O'daniel ford body shop in new Haven at Noon tomorrow for anyone who wants to help/ hang out. We'll be putting a new steering gear, and welding some broken exhaust hangers in tell ozzy's TJ, we'll be cutting up the wheelwells on goodfellazxj's XJ, and I'll be working on fabbing up some low dough lower control arms for my XJ
