Shawn I won't be able to meet you at 40/42. I'll be going cross country and have to leave a little later unless something happens at work tomorrow.

 

Twin Peaks is like Hooters isn't it? Never been there but heard about it. Or there's always Jack in the Box.

 

Alright, that's cool.  Let us know as soon as you can as to whether you can make it or not.

 

 

I'm squeezing every ounce of daylight and energy I have into finishing my mj before sunday, but it still doesn't look like I'm gonna be able to meet you guys. This is probably one of those "once in a long damn while" meetups, and I'm kicking myself for not getting my mj done in time. 

 

Come in another vehicle lol.  It would still be cool to meet you.

Here's the thing, work is burning me out right now. 6 days a week at 12 hours a day. The store is closed sunday, so it's my only day to get anything done on the Jeep. Next week is the same, plus drill friday through sunday, and a full week after that, so no day off for 12 days. The MJ is my DD, and I can't keep riding my luck on someone letting me borrow their vehicle while I wrench around on my truck. I have to cram everything into this sunday, and get it roadable, or I won't have a chance to do so for 12 more days. That's the ONLY reason I can't meet up with you guys, as much as I'd like to. I want some pictures of all the MJs together, though!

I understand man... I'll snap so pictures for sure.  We can plan a Uwharrie trip in the future and perhaps you can go.  I just ordered a Spartan rear locker for my XJ, so next time I can get out to Uwharrie is going to be fun for sure.

Nice, how many people showed up? I actually got my MJ driving that night, but the alignment was still off. Fixed it this morning, and it drives buttery smooth with its new lift and components. 1 DAY TOO LATE, haha.

About 6 people showed.  We can still meet and chill.  We're talking about going to Uwharrie April 12th and 13th now.  The 5th and 6th are the Jamboree.  My buddy Sam and I don't want to go on the weekend of the Jamboree since it'll be a clusterf**k of people there, so we are setting up a trip the following weekend.  Be cool if y'all could come out.

Let's try to get together a date to meet at Carolina Beach

 

I'd be down for that, but Uwharrie first? I've been wanting to try some of the trails up that way for a long time now.

I'd love to do CB and URE, but at the moment, my XJ is down...  The engine is FUBARed... coolant in the top of cylinder #2.  The guy who built it is supposed to stop by my house Friday and look it over.  It should still be under warranty, so it should be fixed soon, by him.

I hate to hear that, especially after you just got a locker for it. Time to see just how capable your stock height (?) MJ really is! haha

Well, I'll be getting it back on the road ASAP.  I'm picking up a 4.0 from a '96 XJ with 87,000 miles on Wednesday as a backup in case I get bent over on my current engine.  One way or the other, my Jeep will live on. :cheers:

That sounds good. I'll try to figure out a date for Carolina Beach, y'all let me know when you're headed to Uwharrie that's only about 40 minutes from me

Nothing lol.  My other thing is lack of time... I started a different job, so my schedule is all over the place.  Plus I got some family issues that are taking priority at the moment.

That sounds awesome, I'm sure the hardest part for all of us is getting that time off, though. Being over a month out, might give enough time for some leeway.

I never come into this section. I guess I'll have to start. I have to work the weekend of the next meet. The one in Concord would have been cool. I'm in Asheboro so not too far from there or Uwharrie. I'll keep a better eye out here.

It's a shame you can't make it man... I got the XJ back on the road as of about two weeks ago.  It would be pretty awesome to see some MJs with us at Uwharrie as well.  If by some chance you can make it, just PM me or post in this thread.  Perhaps we can set something up at a later date to wheel or just meet.

Me and another member did a uwharrie trip last weekend, alot of members don't have off roadable MJs, maybe it'd be best to do another concord meetup.
