    I was thinking that would be the weekend for me too. 3 straight camping weekends have led to a LOT around the house and truck to be straightened out. :p

    I could probably host, if i can get the garage cleaned out. Have just enough room to get one truck in at a time, then there's room on the street (driveway is way sloped). only problem is my lack of tools. might have to be a BYOT deal. ;)

    2 inch lift. After market rims and rites. Auto start
    I have a good sized driveway and would like to host sometime. Only problem is the lack of tools also.

    Also going to be ordering my sub and amp soon, would pay someone to do the install if they've already done it to their taco.

    Plannin on doing some shock work on the 28th starting around noon.... Will have driveway room for another taco or two and plenty of parking for helpers :D

    Will also have beer and a grill with some stuff to cook on it if you get hungry...

    I have a number of tools IN my truck and at my house but none at this place. Bringing whatever you have is recommended :)

    I have a couple of jack stands and will probably only be using one at at time. But again, I suggest bringing your own if ya got em!

    Text (or call if you must. but i dislike phone calls) for details. 382-181O

    If some folks wanted to come by my place around 3 I could use a hand getting the tent mounted. Everything's prepped.

    Mod day was a sucess! Got my rear shocks in surprisingly easily. Bret and i got some work done on our grilles and behind-the-grill lights mounted. Russ got his rear block removed and the AALs in, despite a ton of things just not wanting to cooperate, with the exception of actually re-installing the leafs. I think we finally got a good system for that by using the bottle jack to get it in position.

    Thanks to everyone who showed up and helped. Looks like we will need a nother few before the summer is over. I know justin needs his OME lift installed and russ and i still have our fronts to do!

    Pics to follow!

    Thanks for hosting, Anna! And BIG thanks for lending us access to those tools. Anyone else going from blocks to AALs, buy shorter u bolts! Lol. Now to get my front end replaced!!! Was a HOT day for working, but so worth it!
