SOA is definatley the way to go, you're on the right track. One of my lifted buddys is Chief Gunner who posted earlier. I helped him a little with his SOA and man that thing work good in the dirt.

Hope to see ya in S.D. soon.

Is this the one non-lifted guy you're refering to? I think I might know him.

Right now I have 2" blocks in the rear and custom 1 5/8" springs in the front, well acutallymore like 1 1/8" on the driver side and 1 3/4" on the passenger. I just kinda average them out.

That is on my list of things to do. I want to convert my round lights to a H4 type bulb so I can upgrade to better lights. Ultimately, I would love to go with a true projector beam, but that is so low on the list right now.

I was thinking to do it with the auxiliary lights. Just use them as the headlights, and the regular lenses as the auxiliaries.

fogs/auxiliaries = headlights; headlights = fogs/auxiliaries. That way the truck doesn't look like it has eyeballs.. for the square lenses.

well thats illigal in california..u can try to do that but i see u being pulled over real quick.. i used to have my 1979 mustang with the 4 head lights and i switched the middle 2 for the low beams and the outside for the high and i got pulled over within a week with a fix it ticket.. u have to have the headlights in the stock position and they have to be on the outside edge of the car.. and + the reason for the eyeball lens is to give u a nice stright beam of light that doesnt shine up wards so all the light is projected in front of u hence the name (projector headlight)

and u dont want to have to get a brake and light inspection.. thats a b****

We are still around and we post up when things are planned. Un fortunantly we are talking FSJ's here, and at any time there is a M&G or run posted our rigs may or may not be running. So we havent had the best turn outs for these meetings. If we ever did get lucky and got them all together at one time it would be a lot of fun and quite a sight Im sure. We will keep trying and posting so keep an eye on this section of the IFSJA. And thanks for bringing up this old thread. I hope it continues to grow here in So Cal. PM sent....

if we wait until everyone's rig is ready, we'll never get there.

however, if we help each other get their rigs on the road, we'd have better turnouts. plus a lot of fun along the way. i met songman when he picked up the j10 in banning, worked with geminiroq on his cherokee, met suzq044 and smittles in the yards, and working on their cherokee. and djongeward's son will be picking up the 4350 carb in the next few days.

all good times.

Well I'm trying to wrap up some odds and ends on my Wagon so I can take it out to the desert for an off road shake down. I'm shooting for mid-February, but it might even be the TDS Desert Safari.

As far as a local meet-n-greet, I'll throw out an idea. I've used Dalton's Roadhouse in San Marcos before for this type of thing. They host a car show in their parking lot on the first Sunday of every month. Just an idea to get some discussion going.

Trying to make my Willys Wagon more highway friendly is also on the to do list.

The shake down on my Wagon went great at TDS (except for the dent). We'll be back at Truckhaven this weekend, March 19-20, but in my trail Jeep, not the Wagon.

Then we'll be at Coyote Canyon on March 26th in the Wagon. Anyone interested get in touch with me for more info. These are family friendly runs. Thanks.

Sadly for this thread, suzq044 and I have left San Diego. Metal Twister - do we have to unregister from scuff now? (j/k) I hope to visit occasionally.
There was a late 60s early 70s wag in Carlsbad. If the driver is at home, you can't miss this Wag on a side street parked in front of their house. Its right around the corner from El Camino Real and Alga Rd/Aviara Pkwy intersection. Also there's another 80s Wag/Grand we saw all the time on the side of the 101 in Encinitas(beach goer?) and occasionally in traffic around the 101 and La Costa Ave. We have even seen one or two go through the high end used dealer in south Encinitas. There's another used dealer just south of Encinitas Blvd that has had a couple of CJs. He's also had a few older cars and trucks too. IIRC there's even another GW off Paseo del Norte in Carlsbad between Poinsetta and Palomar Airport Rd.
So, there are a few more FSJs around San Diego that haven't checked in here or SCUFF. Just thought I would add what I remember.
