Jode,
There is a customer call center for verizon located at the corner of shipyard blvd and independence blvd. I hear that they are almost always hiring. Something maybe to look into.

Good luck!

Hey nitro, did the folks at custom upholstery just repair a couple of spots of worn stitching or did they have to completely dismantle the top and re-sew it? Mine needs to be completely re-stiched, just trying to get an idea for cost.
thanks.

I'm familiar with this lol.

Application process, at least initially, is all online, just google Verizon Wireless jobs Wilmington NC, it should come up. We're almost always hiring.

Jode...I fabric on my top is still all good...but the little plastic slider things that connect the top to the body are broken and in poor shape... any ideas about that?
Hey American, Didn't see this post till just now. Sorry for the delayed response. I would have to see the plastic pieces to possible give you an idea about that. But if they're broken and that's the only problem, there might some options to explore...

I'm pretty sure they dismantled the top. They said that alot of my stiching was dry rotting(?) mine started to rip over the doors and I have loose threads at the back window. So I belive they did the whole top, and I think they might be able to get the plastic pieces your talking about. But it did only cost around 150 and took about 3 days with reconditioning, I didn't think the top they showed me was mine when I went to pick it up( Idroped it off a light grey and got back a dark grey) they offer free quotes so feel free to stop buy and ask.

This weekend is the move! I'll be officially a Wilmington resident in about 24 hours! Going to miss living on Topsail Island, but I have good feelings about Wilmo!

Wow! There is a lot of Wranglers in Wilmington! But out of the 15 I saw, only 2 waved back! Is this to be expected on a daily basis? If so it is very disheartening!

Lots of people that drive Wranglers, but only a few Jeepers, that's my impression.

I'll wave to you though!

Very good explanation! It's a shame that some people who drive Wranglers don't know, or don't want to be a part, of the Jeeper community! All well, to each their own! Can't wait to see yall on the road!

Well, I have also noticed many will wave, but only on the 2 lane roads...I don't know why, maybe the just think the more lanes the less noticable it will be.

But I wave whenever I see another Jeep. Look foreard to adding another person to Wilmington that'll wave back too!

You may have waved to me. I got fussed at by my wife for not waving. Thing is, I was waving to jeeps like a loon and nobody acknowledged me so I went into my own little world.

Might want to check what's listed on craigslist. Here's an example that's pretty close:

Edit:

This would be a nice CJ if your friend can put a little tlc into it:

Hit the north end of CB today by the pier today chilly.... Man, were there some great waves. But man is CB completely different from Topsail! Going to take some getting used too.

ps. is there anywhere on CB that you don't have to pay to park? I don't like the idea of having to pay everytime I want to go surf... which is often.

Welcome Shawn! If you enjoy you're Unlimited half as much add I do my TJ, then you're gonna have a blast as a Jeeper!

Jode, yes the waves were awesome this weekend! I got barreled for the first time Saturday, freakin' sweet! Not enough speed on my tank of a funboard to shoot out though- pretty wild to see it close out from both sides of you at once lol!

Not too sure on parking, as I live walking distance away in Kure, but I'd suggest come down towards Kure / Ft Fisher, you don't have to pay to park at the public access points along the main drag outside of CB. Hell, for that matter we should get up & paddle out some time!

Welcome Shawn!

I just moved into the Monkey Junction area from Topsail Island! Hope to see you around, I have a Lime green Rubi on 35's if you see one its me. As I have yet to see another Lime Greener in Wilmo! And p.s. I wouldnt mind doing a Wilmo meet and greet. Seems there has been lots of talk about it, but nothing solidified.

And Chilly, I'd love to paddle out with you. Much more fun paddling out with a buddy! I miss living walking distance from the surf... Only been 10 days inland and already having some regrets! lol

I used 4 ratchet straps hung from ceiling. Adjust so a couple inches higher than top. Back in, lift one back corner then the other then the front. Drive out and you can still pull in frontward to park.

If you buy a pass before March 31st each year it's only 60 bucks after that it's 100. I've seen people park at the pier to go surfing.

Hey jode I'm off for the next 3 days it's my Friday today. I'm planning on hitting Carolina beach as much as possible. I'd love to meet up with you and anybody else that feels like going out. I'd really like to check out your ride and lift. Trying to get an idea what I want to run on mine.
