Thanks all, should have a few items done this weekend. I am pretty useless right now, but MNJK has offered a hand. Hopefully we can make it work out. I am not allowed any lifting for 2 weeks.

Congrats, I guess I missed you getting it in the waiting room. I am starting to get really jealous of all y'all getting notes from AA, but happy to see another Sept club member on the road. Enjoy your build.

Last, but not least, courtesy of MNJK are the ACE Rock Sliders. I just had my appendix out, so he volunteered to come help me out. His Jeep is on the left.

Love it! Its great how just a few items make such a nice difference in the look of your ride.

Cheers to MNJK for lending a hand to a fellow jeeper. I came from the VW community and for the most part people were the same way. Its nice to jump into another community like this.

I really like the headliners, they not only look great but they also really quiet things down. Very nice quality.

It was great to meet MNJK, he's a really good guy. He did all the heavy lifting, Mrs Turchman helped hold things and I ground washers. It took about an hour.

We both really appreciate him taking time out of his weekend to help out.

Looking good, Turchman and Mrs. Turchman!

Hats off to you, MnJK! I hope Turchman remembered the pizza and beer like I instructed!

Jeep is off to a great start!

Was great to meet the Turchman's! Not often one gets to meet a dignitary (V.P. of the Sept Curse Club)! After corresponding so long in the waiting room, couldn't just stand by without lending a hand after their long wait and appendix removal. Plus, we live only about 20 minutes apart. Was a nice team effort and didn't take long at all to get the rails on. Gotta say their flame red is awesome, especially with the black contrast. Distracted….YES!!! Vikes just scored again and now lead the Pack by 13!

I don't blame her, Turchman! I was SO hoping for an Archer Ace autograph! It was just a little too late leaving paint to make it to trim before his shift ended... but I got a nice play-by-play the whole night it was being built!

It's really looking great! Looking at your last picture reminds me I want to get some black paint and repaint the screws on my gas cover...

Congratulations on such a productive first weekend! Mrs. Turchman definitely has a kick ass ride!

Turchman, the rig is really coming along. I am wondering if the headliner is something the dealer has to install or can it be DIY? Also, what did ya pay for it if ya don't mind me asking?

Thanks, it is starting to come together. I think installing the headliner would be fairly simple. I was going to do it myself, but since it took 10 weeks to get the Jeep, we ran out of warm weather. You have to take the top off and lay it on the ground, plus it needs to be at least 50 degrees.

I performed the snow and ice mod last night. The Nittos were very good in the snow, it felt planted at all times.
