Right now I'm still driving my TJ with a sticker on the windshield that says "Proudly using the gas your hybrid is saving" but as soon as I get a wagoneer that's going bye bye

So, I have another couple that is going to follow me down to the meet. So are we talking June 1 & 2? Have a few things to get in order, just want to be sure on the date.

Gumby, my buddy is working out how to bring his Cherokee so he can mount that spoiler when we come... :-bd

I cant tell you guys how excited I am that I'm FINALLY going to make one of these... Image

Yes - we are talking June 1 & 2. Might be warm for camping on Saturday. Details not firmed up yet though. Emily R's 21st birthday is that Saturday too!

Jeff - Good to see you are coming man! :-bd

Awesome as soon as there is a set day let me know I have to ask for a day of leave if I want to camp I would 24 hour shifts every other day so if I'm off Sunday I work sat and the other way around (joys of a firefighter) and the sooner the better. The jeep I'm looking to get need some comedic work. Little fixable rust but under the hood has bout 20-25k on a fresh rebuild body is about 150k. I can't wait I love FSJs!!! Well jeeps period.

The one I'm looking at is in phx. Droe up there Friday and loved it. My wife is excited to have a jeep that is auto so she can drive it more and my daughter liked it also. Adventually I'll get a CJ for my wife cuz that what she likes but that's will be a few years out cuz I already have a crawler project. A 74 scout II

This is what I'm looking at. If any1 knows of any here in tucson that doesn't need a lot of work (small cosmetic stuff is on) and under 3500 can u point me in the right direction. I'm from Cali and 75 and older are smog except there so that would be nice for me when I go home so if it's older then that is a plus but not a deal breaker

here is like to the one im lookin at. i just have to weight to sell my wifes old car.

Don't look like I'll be getting that wagoneer till after the meet and greet but the guy is saving it for me because me and my wife loved it. Needs work but I have a full shop on base I can use and it's all comedic. I like the idea of making it mine in some sense. Won't look pretty but will work like I want it too!

Plain English: It would be nice to see folks with their FSJ that weekend but if you can't we won't rebuke you. :D

I am trying to get a handle on what the Rogers are doing and invited Emily for a birthday camp fire drinky Saturday. ;)
