Wish it could have been warmer but all in all it was a good meeting and showing from almost everyone. I think the group shot will go up on my computer at work.

Hey guys I am from Cedar Lake and just bought my 03 wrangler. Do you guys have any good mechanics in the area for our off road needs? suspension, gears, driveshafts, so on?

Most of the guys work on their own rigs and help each other out within the club. Most of the upgrades can be done by your self if you have some basic knowledge and tools.

What exactly are you looking to do at this time?

If anyone wants to swing by we have our monthly meeting this Friday at the Bass Pro in Portage, IN @ 7pm. I won't be able to make it since working nights this week

For those interested - we meet up on the second floor in a conference room behind the guns.

Like Troy above, I'm also looking for a good Jeep mechanic in the region. Preferably not a dealership. If you guys have any ideas I'd appreciate it. My battery won't hold a charge and when I jump it, there is a strong smell of paint. I realize most of you work on your own Jeeps but I need it fixed this weekend. Any ideas would be helpful.

Your battery is either bad or your charging system. Not sure where you are located but I do have a battery / charging system tester. Guessing I would say Battery.

Thanks Theheilis. It was the battery. I get so much corrosion on the battery and cables. I wound up changing the battery and the terminals and it fired right up.
