DFW Wrench Meet, May 12

Going to be wrenching on my 4Runner this Saturday. Could use any available hands willing to help. You're more than welcome to bring your own mods to do to your truck but my main focus is getting my rig back on the ground. Going to try to wrap up the rear suspension and start the tear down on the front. Can provide beer if you're of age (juice boxes for Adam lol) and lunch. Have two welders (wire flux core, and stick), plasma cutter, and power tools. Let me know if you can make it.

If I get the rear suspension wrapped up earlier in the day, I'll be headed to Bridgeport for night wheeling Saturday night instead of tearing into the front suspension.

Come on anyway. Good time to learn. If you mess something up, it's on someone else's truck lol.

We welded mine with a regular flux core wire welder then just ground all the splatter off. Although I wasn't really worried about it since you can't see them unless you climb under and look at it. But since yours are already painted, it would probably be better to find someone with a MIG.
