    Hello to TW!

    My name is Jordan, I'm a freelance mechanic in CO. No special certifications or anything - everything I know I have taught myself with hard lessons, wrench time, and dedicated help from forums like this one.

    My only truck (for now) is a 1978 full size Jeep J-10 pickup. I'm hoping this won't hinder my experience within this forum - the next truck I buy will be a taco, but I have no idea as of yet when that will be. However, I'm a fan of custom home fabrication and modification, and am always changing things around on my truck. I'm writing this little intro to get an idea as to how posts about the mods on the Jeep will be received...?

    Also, I'm entirely here to learn. What drew me to this site was the discussions regarding MT and LT suspensions. I'm hoping to do a one of a kind build on my truck, and have already learned so much here...if you all don't really care about my truck I completely understand, but I'd still like to introduce myself and say a giant thank you for all of the information!

    Welcome,
    I am sure there are Tacoma owners on here who have Jeep experience also, and as far as suspensions and fabrication a lot of the concepts are universal anyway, so we might be able to learn from you as much as you learn from the knowledgable guys here.

    Thank you all for the welcomes. TRDSurgie, if I was worried about a little hazing about the Juheep, I would never have bought it in the first place haha. Boerseun, I hope I don't disappoint! Now I just need to learn how to quote on here!

    little button at the bottom right of the person's post you want to quote that is marked "quote", the one next to that is for multi quotes, click that one on the first, second etc posts that you want and the last post you want to quote use the regular quote button
