UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!

So, the build is finally...finally making some forward momentum. Some parts are on their way in and I hope they will be here for this weekend. This is my last weekend before the Lucas Oil Off Road Expo in Pomona.

I'm thinking a build party may be? This could be your one opportunity to work on a SEMA Jeep. All the blood sweat and tears will be showcased in SEMA and Ponoma. The problem is, I may need to find a location that this build party could happen. I don't have all the necessary tools for this job. Most of Jeff's tools are in storage at the moment and Jason is out of town. Is anyone possibly interested in hosting? You would be amazing and I will promise you a free sticker when they show up. Think about it and let me know. Otherwise, I will do my best to piece together everything I need at my house.

Here's what will need installing:
Metalcloak Game Changer kit. (short arm bolt in)
Tires and wheels.
Light bar brackets.

Let me know if you might be interested in helping at all.

Um...what?

Many hands make light work. And if I can squeeze out a front axle, we may be installing that as well. Time will tell...the boss is thinking about it.

Um...what?

Greg, I so very wish we had all our tools here in Ca. The heavy stuff is in Nv. However, we have a garage you could use. We are also doing the club camp out this weekend but u can come & go as u need for as long as u need. U can drive our jeep while urs is in limbo also. I'm very serious about the offer. I can bring lemonade and cookies to u and whomever is helping u work on it and say encouraging rhymes to y'all.... (I'm the official club cheerleader now..)

So, just another update, it looks like we will be doing the build at my parents house and hopefully we will be starting Thursday evening. It shouldn't be too bad so don't worry about bending over backwards to help out. Enjoy the camp out everyone!! We will be doing the lift and some small minor installs. They say 6-8 hours on the lift so we should good.

Thanks everyone!!

Um...what?

We did it on two days, about 8 hours the first day and about 6 the second day.

We started last night. Front end is done, we started on the rear then called it a night. We should have the rear wrapped up today. But I'm still waiting on a few parts to come in from OTRT. Like my tires and wheels...
