If you want to see what lifts look like installed, come to a meeting. There is one tomorrow, Tuesday April 1 at 7:30 at Smugala's Pizza in Crestwood, MO (might be today if you're reading this Tuesday)

Next month the meeting is on the IL side at Fast Eddie's.

Often the best part of the meetings are the parking lot 'shop talk'.

There is a run next Saturday (Oct 25th) to the Sayersbrook Bison Ranch in Potosi. It will have a stock jeep friendly group.

The next meeting is Tuesday, Nov 4.

You just missed an Intro to Offroading class and trail ride that was yesterday.

Keep an eye on either the Trailhead forum or the Events calendar. Click Events in the blue bar above. We also try to get the word out about the events and meetings on Facebook.

I run mine with a two inch budget boost from Teraflex and longer take off Rubicon springs with 35" General Grabbers and drive 40 minutes to work every day.
Smooth as silk when I don't have death wobble issues from knocking out my alignment wheeling.
