mogarber Hey guys. My Jeep died on my on Tuesday. Couldn't fix it myself so I had it towed to the mechanic. He is still looking at it and hasn't even told me exactly whats wrong. I am waiting to hear from him but its unlikely my Jeep will be back by Sunday. Let's postpone until my jeep is home. Sorry for the trouble.
05-17-2012 11:38 PM
YJrenegade Mogarber's jeep is at the shop and may not be ready for this weekend. He will let us know.

YJrenegade x2, Mogarber! I want to put a simple lift to my YJ too.

jeep973366 Sounds good, let me know when you take your jeep in, I would like to meet him.

YJrenegade Hey Jeep973366, I recently found a guy welded my rusty front end frame close to the steering gear box. Work was good and honest!! His address is 2032 S. Elmhurst Rd, Mt. Prospect, Ph# 224-260-1634 Roman. It's a small size shop, rate was very reasonable and negotiable. My next project is for him to put up new body mount bushing and a 2.5" lift kit probably in the next couple week. If you happen to have any work need to be done and in close area, call or text me, so we can go together for even better discount.
