Deployed soldier in need of JK Parts
 
Hey guys my name is Adam and I'm about to finish my tour in Afghanistan. I'll be home at the end of next month and I can't wait to get back to my 2007 JKUX I bought when I was at home on leave. Its completely stock at the moment and I'm wanting to make it "My Jeep". Its been a long 14 months so I'm very ready to get back and start my jeep experience. If any of you guys are looking to upgrade or sell any parts just PM me plz. I was hoping by starting a new thread like this I might meet some more Oklahoma Jeepers and possibly get some good advise about Ideas for my jeep and possibly some parts that I know with hold up on the Jeep. :D

Adam, from a friend south of the Red, thank you for your service and have a safe trip home.

Schmitty88:

thanks for your service and we'll do what can can to get you fixed up...
being south of the Columbia will hinder the transfer of much but I'll be happy to contribute whatever my 08 JK experience might add to ease your return to Jeeper Life sans military.

Schmitty88 02-28-2012 02:46 PM

Tomthbomb and JeeperJake, thank you guys very much. It means alot when people tell me that. I just ordered the RC 2.5" coil spring lift with 2.2 shocks and Nex tI'm looking at tires and performace parts for the V6.

All of us here know that "FREEDOM" is NOT free:thumb:

I will keep you in mind as I may be replacing the stock shocks on my 2012 JKU-S!

Schmitty88 02-29-2012 02:10 PM

Thanks again guys. I'm from Southwestern Oklahoma but my GF is from tulsa so I will be spending alot of time up there as well over the summer.

Schmitty88 02-29-2012 03:30 PM

Wow I just read a thread on JK-owners.com that made it out to sound like a guy was asking for All Free Mods for his jeep, some of the replies were a bit harsh but I didn't want people thinking I was wanting free mods. i more so want Direct Advise about the parts I was putting on my jeep. Anyone know how to change the Title of this post?

Schmitty88 02-29-2012 03:33 PM

Oh do you guys know of any good trails in or close around OK? I've been doing a little research on my own but don't have a lot of time to spend on a computer until I get home.

Schmitty88 02-29-2012 05:14 PM

And now thanks to Jeff Harvey at Rock Ridge 4WD, I now have a Superchips Flashpaq Tuner headed to my house along with my left so they'll be there when I get home. Thanks Rock Ridge 4WD

If, and I say again, if, I change out the stock shocks on my 2012 JKU and you want them, you can have them at NO charge :thumb: The least I can do for our Military folk :D

Schmitty88 - THANK YOU for YOUR SERVICE!

Some awesome people showing true colors (red, white, and blue) in this thread! :)

I never once thought this guy is looking to get free parts.

Schmitty88 03-01-2012 04:43 PM

Willee51. Thanks you for your kind offer sir. If not for me ordering the RC 2.5 lift I would have thankfully accepted your gift and bought a few rounds for us on me.

Schmitty88 03-01-2012 04:46 PM

tribangle thank you very much. I was afraid it seemed that way. I'm actually talking to Jeff at Rockridge 4WD and he's pricing some 35's on Crager 15x8s for me as we speak. He's been real helpful finding me good prices on the jeep parts I want.

willee51 03-01-2012 05:18 PM

No problem..

............. but we can all have a few-rounds together somewhere, sometime :dance:

I have a used front adjustable track bar I just replaced. Not sure of the brand though, it kinda looks like a Black Diamond brand, there are no markings on it at all and was on the Jeep when I bought it. PM me if interested. Thank you for everything that you and the military does for us on a daily basis.

The best part about the military?
Being retired! :rofl:

The Kolecter - Right on man. Your awesome. I haven't done any research on what exactly that is. This is my first jeep and I still have much to learn. But I definitely thank you for your offer.
Willee51 - I have a few buddies that want to go wheeling after I get back. If your somewhere close we'd love to have the company. Vets are always welcome with me.
Just a hair over 5 years in so far. 1 more left on the old contract and then I'll decide what to do:cool:
