Well I FINALLY got the jeep back from the body shop. It's been in there since my flop in Ocala. I got several things I NEED to do and a few I'd like to do before Jeeptober. I'll be working on it after work during the week and am hoping I can get a couple guys over on the weekend. I have a slab and canopy at the house but if someone has a bay they can offer up I can trailer it there. Post/PM/Call me if you are able to help out.

Thsnks,
Jack

Thanks James. I'll work on the jeep during the week at the house and bring it over either late Friday or early Sat and tackle the big stuff there. :2thumup:

I highly doubt it. Chris would have to come home like today..... Because the Jeep needs the fuel sending unit replaced and a few other things before it is trail ready. And since I doubt that will happen I am pretty sure we won't be going. :2thumbdown: :2thumbdown: :2thumbdown:
