    Alright here is the deal...

    As many of you know I was asking a couple weeks ago about FJ stuff :confused:, for the wife's truck.. and eventually got the Intel about FJ cruiser Forums (FJCF) :amen:I sign up there and started reading about different Lifts, Tires etc.. and got in touch with Doug from Toy Tec, got the lift ordered, it arrived at the house.:thumbsup:

    Well as you all know I am deployed right now :plane:, so I Posted on the regional area for Texas, on FJCF, asking for suggestions on where I could get the lift installed by people that know what they are doing, and at a reasonable price. :help:

    I had a guy email me (Worked on motorcycles all his life and done various installs on FJs including 6 lift kits helping friends out) and offer to install the kit for Free. When I told him that wasn't what I was looking for, he insisted and said " He refuses to accept the money of a deployed service member" :bananadance:

    So next week my dad and my wife are driving out to have this kit installed.

    I get back in Late Dec/ Early Jan, and plan to make a trip to Texas end of Jan/ early Feb, and I will taking a drive out to thank him personally, I am just trying to think of something I can give him, that he wouldn't be able to just get anywhere, to show him I am truly thankful,:humble: for his generosity

    I think that would be a cool gift. He sounds like a respectful guy who would appreciate something like that. All the local businesses here that support family readiness always have plaques, photos, etc. from units displaying.

    I did this for a couple of family members and friends. I personally think they thought that was the best thing that I could have done for them. You should go that route and take a case of beer just b/c and have a good time.
