Hope you can make it bud.

I've all of my tools that I think I'll need laid out along with assorted other crap just in case. Not as much stuff as I thought I'd need.

We'll be there. I'm bringing beer and I'm already thirsty.

Jeep is all loaded up. Was a tight fit but I managed to fit everything.

Random idea...

Anyone done the zip lines in Ponca? Thinking that would be a cool group trip one weekend this summer.

Just a thought.

We will hopefully have another soon when JUstin does his locker install.

What mods/work do you need to do to your rig?

Dumb question: what are the motor mounts for? Haven't heard of anyone doing that. Or is that just a repair?

Motor mount lift is suppose to bring everything back inline after a lift. But the motor mount lift is something I'm just looking into. I am going to do the body lift though.

Yes, I had a blast and I appreciative the help, company, and the use of the shop... which mine is still there. Holy sheyat, I'm so sore and tired from crawling under and around my rig all day/ night. I had every intention of going back this AM to readjustment my pinion, but I don't think my back can take it! It's raw!!

Well, Im unsure of EXACTLY how to do it, but Blu seemed to know!
Digging, leveling, framing a perimeter, and setting up rebar is as much as I know..6 yards of concrete is what im ordering as soon as the footings are ready. 20X22ftX4in. thick. Once we get that poured, itll take a couple days to set, and then I can get this lift ordered!! (need help with that too)
Ill provide beer and food! (And Jeep Parking, of course)



The lift type Im looking to get..(JEEP not included )

I've installed a few Amco formerly Ben Pearson. Its been a while but its not super hard. If ur slab is only 4 inches dont skimp on the reinforcement. Let me know when and i'll sure try to be there.

You would be of great value to me!

I can always go thicker, but as you said- bulk it up on the rebar..
Ive talked to alot of concrete dudes and they say 4" 4000PSI straight concrete. ??? Sound about right?
