Midwest Invasion Date/Location Now Set

Several of you have expressed interest in a mid-west meet/greet. Well we have finally decided on dates and a location. We are meeting at the Shades State Park in Indiana starting September 27th through the 29th. A link to the park, along with available campsites can be found here: http://indianastateparks.reserveamer...ex=CampingSpot As of today, there are really only 3 sites left in the "Jeep area" #067-069. This park will put us within driving distance (~35 miles) to The Badlands.


We hope to see you all there.

Watching to see what you all decide.

How about a meet in Missouri?

We could camp at Jadwin Canoe Rental near Salem Missouri http://www.jadwincanoe.com/index.html The float trips on the Current River are really nice. This river is kid friendly. I highly suggest renting kayaks for kids over 10.

For those that need Air Conditioning, Barton's Lodging is within walking distance of Jadwin Canoe rentals. This place has a bunch of old trailers that will do the job. You will not spend alot of money staying here. http://www.yelp.com/biz/bartons-lodging-jadwin

Those that want to wheel could go to Flat Nasty Offroad Park. http://www.flatnasty.com/?page_id=22

Those that want to fish could go to Montauk State Park.

New midwestern FSJ owner here, in to see what this is all about.

What constitutes "midwest" as far as this event is concerned?

Just a thought, but we have a Scrambler forum and folks have a lot of luck doing Scrambler-specific gatherings tied to another general Jeep/offroad event. The FSJ folks could stay/gather together, take part in whatever people want to do at the larger event and do their own thing for part of the time as well.

We did this very successfully at the Tidewater Fourwheelers annual event in Oak Ridge VA (not suggesting that location here, just giving the example) where we had a full trail ride each year (and more than one a couple years with bigger Scrambler turnouts). The Scrambler folks that didn't stay in the one hotel all camped together in the main camping area, gathered together each morning, and had a group dinner one night. Our trail group was always the biggest draw in the staging area in a sea of TJs/LJs/JKs. You know a crew of FSJs would be the same deal.

That way there's more of a draw for folks to come and it's less organizing that you have to do because there's already things planned, it would just be a matter of figuring out what the group wanted to do/not do/do together. Kind of cool to have a bunch of other folks drooling all over your rigs too

I don't have any ready suggestions for a suitable event, just passing on my personal experience with a way to do something similar.

Surprisingly the hardest part of removing the rear brake assemblies was the easiest. The flat head screws came right out and with a couple of hits with a babbitt hammer the drums came right off. The inside were rusted so bad I'm surprised they worked at all. It was definitely a disaster waiting to happen.
It was removing the seals out of the rear hubs that I destroyed a bearing. Nothing in stock anywhere so they are now on order, due in Wed. I wanted disc brakes on this this weekend. Guess I'll have a almost completely rebuilt rear end when done.
Guess I'll rebuild the carb while I'm waiting. Maybe the new gas lines or the bed or the tail lights,maybe the dipstick replacement...............

I finally got my new Dana 20 installed today. The hardest part was getting that Mickey Mouse stock Jeep shifter to work. What a piece of junk. I'll be glad when my modified twin sticks get here from JB customs. Then I can install my "Dana 19". Now I can start on creature comforts...like sound proofing.

For anyone that is going to be at the Meet these are available.

A th400 or a tf727. They all ran when fine when parked 5 years ago. $100

How about a NP228 case same as above. $75.

Center wheel hubs, bolt from rear. NOS Black solid centers front and back. Not in boxes and small scrapes in black paint where someone had them stacked together at one point. Keep them black or have them chromed. $175 set of 4

I have a set of 4 with open fronts centers in black as well. Really nice shape. $100

I have chrome sets ranging from pitted dirty $10 ea. to slight pitting $25 ea. to pretty decent with light pitting $40
No open front chromes.

Bolt on from face wheel hubs pitted not too pretty but runnable,in chrome.
$15 ea.

I have a TT Fabworks rear spring relocation kit and his longer spring perches for up front SOA. See his website for details. These were pre CNC made kits, 2007 vintage. Never used, sold the 78 Chero. This will not work for a J truck. Waggies and cheros only. Not sure of year cut off but it was for my 78 Chero. $200

Yeah that's what I thought. Unfortunately, my generator is a super loud Chinese special. I guess if I bring it I just won't run it after 7PM or something.
