Thanks Joe @ Absolute offroad

In ref. to my earlier post (new here, need your opinion), Joe got right on it. In fact, I called him and we discussed the issue and gave me real good advise. Im glad we have guys like him in this forum and can assure you that any performance upgrades we'll do to our Jeeps, will come from Absolute Offroad.

Thanks again Joe

Ezio

Nope, you are right. Not the only good one on the board, but Joe does know more about Jeeps, and in particular JK's than anyone else on this board. That plus his service to both the wheelers in Phoenix and all over the country through his website is why I recruited him so heavily to be a vendor on WF.

Glad you fella's got what you needed.

The spare is still new. I guess that's a testament to the sidewalls for the four on the ground. Or the curbs at the mall.

Joe is a wealth of information, and a great asset on the board, but I am not sure that picture shows his skills! I can make a Jeep look like that, it's the whole making it driveable again thing that kills me! Can't wait to see finished product!

Ha! I guess I was merely pointing out that he works on TJ's too. Plus I wanted to post a pic of my Jeep because I'm a picture whore.

I can't wait either!

You know that they won't ship that back to you, right? It is mandatory that you test out the workmanship, before it leaves PHX. You have to run it, on a trail of their choice, before you take it back home.............

Do I hear a "Hell Yeah"......?

Man I'd love to but my schedule won't allow it. Maybe next year when I ship it out there for my coil overs.

My only regret in building my YJ, is that Joe wasn't the one to do it. I did not know about Joe, until after the build, and having the problems I did. I can say with the utmost confidence, that it would have been done right, if Joe had of done it for me. I am not trying to take anything away from any other mechanic, or builder on this forum. I am just stating that for the kind of lift I had done, Joe is the best one out there, with the most experience.

As I have been at Joe's shop working on my rig for the last three days I can tell you that is on all 4 wheels and looks great. I am sure he will have pics up for you early next week.
BTW I had to keep an eye on Jack all day today to make sure he stayed away from it

Thanks to Joe we have started making good progress on my little YJ also. We got all the old frame brackets for the leaf springs off and started on the new build. I can not wait to wheel a 104" wheel base w/coilovers front and rear on the trails. The flex on this thing is going to be scary.

Joe dose know his Jeeps and it and is a great guy to wheel with.
It it was not for him spotting me in Moab this year i could of hurt my Jeep.
I'm working with Joe on doing gears on my LJ.
But I would have to say his wife is the better half.
They are both great people to know and to have in our Jeep community.

Don thank you very much for my winch keeper. As you can see in the pics I posted in another thread it already installed. What a great idea that is.
