So maybe you won't have any on the trip... :wink:

LJ's ready to rock finally. Samurai distributor in, windshield put in today, did the final check of everything, looks good. Last thing is to make sure the wiring on the trailer plug in works on the Dodge. We're heading out Friday morning, should be there in the afternoon some time. Get the :beer: ready, I'll bring a "few" too.

Hey Smuz, sounds like you had some fun getting the Lj going. Glad you did though!
I still have to adjust my brakes and pretty much do ALL my getting ready tomorrow. Silly me, I thought the Lj meet wasn't for another week ( mostly due to not having internet for half a year)!

I have to wait until my boss gets home with his truck and trailer late Friday night before I can even load up too. So I'm hoping to get there some time before lunch on Saturday.
My Lj is NOT a Jeep!

Well, it's 10am and I'm sitting in a Safeway parking lot waiting for the liquor store to open.
All is well.
