Ain't no party like a jeep lift party

Hey guys! So my buddy just got a 2" spacer lift (w/shocks) for his TJ and I am thinking of snagging one for the JK. We were thinking we'd do them at the same time, but honestly we dont know our arses from our elbows.

Could we host some pros to provide guidance and consume some delish beers and food??

Just whenever. I still need to order my lift, but my buddy got his tonight. Probably before May though.

I'd be intereted in lending a hand... and even more interested if we can add my 97 TJ to the list as I have a 2" spacer lift rolling around my seats that i'm sure would be far more effective if they were on top of my springs. I'd even pay for Pizza for the day. How much pizza can an army of Jeepers eat anyhow?

This is awesome! And I think we'd be fine to add a third Jeep to the mix, but my driveway space is limited. Maybe we can swap them out?

How does Sat 4/14 look for everyone?

I won't be able to do this Saturday. I'll be on the recovery clinic that Mark is putting on.

I'll keep an eye out if you guys wind up changing the date. Good luck and post up pics.

I am wide open that day, so really its up to what works for everyone else. Should we say 11AM? Work a bit, have some pizza delivered...?

My address:

105 N Holland St., Portland 97217

I have a ton of basic tools - sockets, drivers, wrenches, etc. What else should we have on hand? I know we need to get some jack stands and 4x4s...

But shop labor doesn't give you the fellowship with fellow Jeepers and war stories of busted knuckles.

If there are 3 Jeeps in line you might want to start a little earlier then 11am.

"Ain't no party like a jeep lift party
Cause the pimpin' jeep mods don't stop
And if you bring Wheat and Barley to the jeep lift party
Then you gotta give a Jeeper his props!"
