Anyone interested in doing a Meet and Greet (BEER AND WINGS) on Saturday May 8th. aka Worldwide TOPLESS Day? We will be at Locked & Loaded Grill located on Hwy. 70 in Garner, NC starting around 1pm.

Undeniably, The best chicken wings in the Triangle! I also secured a pretty good :beer: special! :smokin:


I am also going to order 2010 Topless Day T-shirts from a well-known Jeep site. If anyone would like a specific size/color/quantity. Please let me know soon. I would like to order by friday morning (Apr. 30). You can PM me or call my cell @ (919) 606-8717.

We could also do a swap-meet as well. If anyone would like to post up what parts you have for sale, that way you can have a buyer and don't have to bring the items not sold prior.

Let me know what you think!

Regards,
ShawnJ

Has this ever been off road, or just a King of the Kurbs :grinpimp:

idk . . I would assume it has been offroad. A local guy said he would give his old lift to the first person who bought him a beer. I will buy his beer, just thought it would be fun to give it to a needy donor. Then a few of us could get together and install it for him, (at a later date) lift party! Got to think of a creative way to find a donor.

Thoughts?

I have the fashion sense God gave a wino but I made the command decision I'll be "fashionably late" for said BBQ.

Hey weren't you just making fun of john for this as the last ride......:thefinger:

That was you and me if I remember(partners in crime:thefinger:)... Right before we went back for gas(hmmm), picked up Tierod(hmmm), watched his rig break(hmmm), and got some good field experience removing it from the trail.
Wonder how the day would of turned out if we never went back for gas...fugger:beer:
Coulda been way worse.

See yous guys Saturday.

Well guys! I have been busy w/ work and haven't even had time to check the boards. Sorry.

What I can tell you is that the radio advertising seems to have worked quite well. I received a call from a local Military Vehicle Preservation group who asked if the could bring by a couple Jeep - Kaiser 2 1/2 tons trucks. Of Course, I said we would make room for them.

Should be a GREAT turn-out!

Not too concerned about the rain. My top and doors are off! Hopefully, it will stay that way.:thumbsup:

Worked my ass off all week and now I am ready for some :beer: and wings!

See you all there!

C'mon now, if the Kansas City crew can get a good showing each month at our Jeep Meets, I'm sure Raleigh can get something going. :beer:

I spoke to ShawnJ last week, another M&G is in the works. Hopefully some more detail in the next week or two, same place, more rigs (hopefully). The rocks at 4wheel parts were a great stop.

Since this is so late why do we try and get something set up for next week or the week after that? That way more people may check the thread and we can get a better turnout and hopefully nice weather :beer:

I'm up for either weekend - but I'm only good for Sundays on either weekend. After April 15th, I'll be good either Sat or Sun.

If we have a large group and want to meet for lunch, we can meet at Grill 57 on 401 in South Raleigh - they do tons of classic car shows and host a number of weekend events. We'll need to check and make sure there are no other events that day. If it's a small group, we can meet at Char-Grille on Edwards Mill Rd or any other outdoor-type food establishment. We can also just meet at a picnic site at Falls Lake and just throw some burger and dogs on the grill. We'd need someone to organize it though. My wife might be able to do something if we give her a week or two notice.

We just need to get the word out. I'd hate to put effort into this and be the only one there.

Subscribed. I'll follow the thread. For those of us in Raleigh that are going on the 23rd as a day trip, we can get together somewhere for breakfast and take off after that.

I can't make it Sunday - Easter with the extended family, but Saturday looks good.

Thanks, I didn't like the rancho carrier with the straight rear tire so I put the plasma to it and laid it back. It was to match the angle of the c pillar on the 4 door.
