yeah, i'm thinking about growing a mullet too. Would look sweet blowing in the wind cruising down the highway with those turbines on my Jeep.

I would be the grill man. You bring the steaks and I'll cook 'em.

I took off today and Friday so I could get some work done on the J10, I hope to get the bed cut and buffed and completed by Sunday.

If Hoot brought his trailer down and we packed it to the "Invasion" would that count???

Yes that would count. In all seriousness, one need not bring a Jeep to the meet/greet. We all have a grand time sitting around telling stories...some tall...some not so tall......

I've gone to at least one M&G a year since around 2006. I've driven an FSJ one time. Luckily it was one of the biggest turn outs at Zacks and we drove more than a mile down the road as a group. The drive to down town Toledo was really cool.

Though I am doing my dangest to get my '71 back together and road tested fairly thoroughly before 9/28.

Only if you sit in the drivers seat and make engine noises as I pull you around..

Actually I'm thinking of trying to get the J20 road worthy by then. I doubt I'll have time to get the utility bed on by then but I should be able to drive it. Or I guess I could throw the M715 bed on it for the time being, I believe it would be more of a "bolt on" than the utility is going to be.

Well if you can drift your way up there, you're more than welcome. We are letting a cheese head join us after all.

You don't have any mud flaps laying around? Slap a set on it and zip tie some taillights to the bumper and drive it down.

How about tacking on a short side bed on the J20?

Then I will not have to get chapped lips making engine sounds, riding behind on the trailer for 4 hours

Well Ristow, you must expand on that statement.

I do a bit of grilling and smoking, always interested it learning something.

If I ever get the J10 painted, I hope to put together a trailer to hold my smoker and a grill and drag it to events like this.

I think it would be neat to have a J10 on the interstate with a smoker behind smoking up the sky.

Ribs and brisket have been perfected, just need a sauce.

Is there anyone going to this who has older style '79 J10 doors they could bring? They need to have no rust and have all the internals. Or anybody who can pick up doors from a guy in Kansas City, MO. If you can, please send me a PM.

I've held off saying anything. But I'm hoping I can make this, and have a FSJ to drive too..

My J10 is far from ready, so I'm going to drive my S10 Blazer so I can meet all of you guys.

Hello Mars!

How you been doing? Been a bit worried about you, no FSJ and all!

Hope you are up and about, let me know what is going on.
