NorCal / Turlock "Installation Party" - Saturday, 11/20

Okay, for those of you who have either anxiously or patiently awaited this date, the "Installation Party" for my DynaTrac PR44 has been set! I'll be taking delivery tomorrow!

Date: Saturday, November 20th
Time: Ass-early, to ass-late (Translation 9:00 am - ??)
Location: Turlock, CA

NOTE: Two venues would have been preferred for location, resources, etc. Shaffer's Off-Road (thank you, Mike), and Jason Mac's Pro-Line Shop (thank you, Jason), however due to either Baja 1000 commitments, or time alotted, we were unable to make the Installation Party work at those locations for this particular install. Thanks to both Mike Shaffer and Jason Mac for either offering or being open to using their respective shops!


CONFIRMED ATTENDEES:
  • rubirobv
  • Eugene
  • sbron
  • Marcy
  • 09Rubicon
  • caligirl
  • the rest to be determined...
SCOPE OF INSTALL: All phases of the D30 for PR44 axle swap, and related items, including but not limited to, wrenching, observing, talking crap, consuming BBQ/beverages, and/or socializing. Also, I will be trying to document & photograph this install, for an a write-up on JKO/Pirate.


Phase One:
  • Remove D30
  • Install Reid Racing Knuckles on Pro-Rock 44
  • Install Poly Performance Upper Track Bar bracket on frame rail
  • Install Rock Krawler UCA Johnny Joint
  • Install RCVs (measure clearance and determine if "grooving" is necessary)
  • Install Brakes from D30 onto PR44
  • Install Coast 1310 Driveshaft/Plate
  • Install assembled Pro-Rock into JK
  • Install second RK upper control-arm
  • Flip ball-joints on Rock Krawler HD Tie-Rod
  • Set Steering Stops on Reids
  • Fill with diff fluid
  • Check connections for ESC
  • Test braking, steering, and highway speed
  • Drink a couple of man-sodas
Phase Two:
  • Run/Install Stainless/Braided Lines from Air Manifold/Solenoids (pre-installed) to respective ARB lockers (front & rear)
  • Re-Install custom fabricated RROR skid plate for Evap + Modified Viair Air-Tank, and re-connect wiring and supply line
  • Test OBA system for leaks and pressure
  • Test ARB lockers
  • Drink a couple of man-sodas
Phase Three:
  • Set bump stops (front & rear)
  • Mark over-axle pipe where it needs to be bent/modified (hits track bar)
  • Drink a couple of man-sodas
Remaining Items to be Coordinated:
  • Food & Drink: I do not have a barbeque. If someone has one, and wants to bring one, then that is fine. If not, I have a kitchen. I don't know how to use it, but someone else is more than welcome to it. Based on replies & suggestions, I will buy appropriate food & drink...
  • Furniture: I just moved into this apartment, and haven't even had my sofa/loveseat delivered. Although furniture wouldn't really help, since the Install Party is primarily in my garage! If you can, bring a camping chair!
  • Tools: I have a lean amount of hand tools, a brand new torque wrench, (4) 4-ton jack stands, and a new 3-ton hydraulic jack. I do not have an electric impact gun. If you have one, and feel like bringing it, you'll be a hero. I "think" I still have my pry bar, and a small hammer. If you have a small sledge, please bring. 35mm axle nut socket... I've ordered one today, but it may or may not arrive by Friday. If not, I'll need to borrow one (Brian you said you have one?) If anyone wants to bring a couple of extra rachets, that may help, so we don't all have to share ONE.
  • Brunettes, Blondes, & Redheads: We have (1) redhead confirmed, (1) blonde confirmed, and sadly enough, we do not yet have (1) brunette confirmed. This is serious guys. Someone needs to step up.
  • Man-Sodas: I'll purchase some man-sodas, but if there is a particular persuasion that you prefer, please bring it along.
  • Volunteer for Operating iPod for Tunes: Marcy??? Leesa???
  • Volunteer for Documenting Install: Marcy??? Leesa???
  • Volunteer for Photographing Install: Marcy??? Leesa???
  • Volunteer for Interjecting Smartass Comments: Scott (09Rubicon)???
Anyway, this should be a good time! I have music, a kitchen, a garage, a JK, a bunch of parts, and a lot of sarcasm. I'm thinking if we mix all of this together, an "installation" should occur!

In addition to those confirmed above, this "Installation Party" is open to all JKO members. Simply PM me, and confirm attendance, and I'll shoot you my address. Thanks to my friends who have agreed to come down and help with the install, and I'll look forward to meeting some new friends as well!

Whoa! You would do that?!? That is bad ass. Yes, please!

I can buy pizza, or burgers/chicken, if someone knows how to cook it on a stove. I will also get chips, salsa, snacks, and shit like that.

for Marcy!

I'm supposed to be heading to my parent's place near Mariposa for an early Thanksgiving this Saturday. That means I would be passing thru Turlock on the 99 at some point that morning. I wouldn't be able to stay long enough to be of any real value to the install, but It could be cool to stop by for a meet & greet and to lend a hand should it be needed while there (maybe an hour, something like 10AM-11AM... Supposed to be in Mariposa around Noon).

You know, I may be able to go. With the weather this weekend, it sounds liek snow here. Which would prevent me from going and spending the night in SF. So its not a for sure, but would be fun to do something with Jeepers this weekend. And I know my way around a garage

This is the new world over here. Simply put, we are going to have a huge Wrenchfest or just a fest on the next one where we all get together. Then as Himoney said all of us degenerates can just keep degenerating.

If Hogg has it his way it won't take long. LOL.

There is plenty of time for gatherings and for degeneration. With the the number of relatively crazy JKOwners that were here in the phonebooth, to you crazy one just coming aboard, I have a feeling that 2011 will be an interesting year! Dennis (Hit) hit it right on the head!

I'm down for future wrenchfests, BBQfests, wheelingfests, or NFL cheerleader tryoutfests.

As a curiousity, you live in an apartment. Does this mean you do, or do not have a garage? Because its going to be a bit wet Saturday.

Hell, anybody can wrench in a warm dry well equiped garage. But it really hones your field repair skills to wrench in the rain with nothing but a beer and a jackstand. And I don't think it rains in In Turdlock 'cause God doesn't know where it is

Hey Rubirob, Marcy, and anybody here in the area; Do we want to convoy on down there? Let me know because I need to go by you on my way. Rob, you know the area well so I'll let you pick the spot if interested.

I will bring my table-top gas grill, ground beef, frozen french fries, cheese, etc. One idea: the french fries and cheese, combined with Marcy's chili would make chili-cheese french fries--very tasty.

Sounds like a plan! I don't have it yet, but it is on the agenda for Friday night's shopping trip.

Great question, and one I should have covered in the post. I have an oversized, attached, garage, to my apartment. It is the nicest garage (size & orientation) that I have seen with an apartment. And it's deeeeeep, so there is plenty of room for people to sit around and criticize, while others work underneath her, up front!

True that... Turlock is out here... It is precisely 20 minutes south of Modesto, on Hwy 99.

Great idea, but if Brian's driving, I'd pick a different designated driver!

Ron, great call on the grill!

Just for the record, tonight I bought 4 pounds of 93% lean hamburger meat, and 24 Turkey Dogs (gotta go lean), buns, condiments, baked beans, plates, cups, napkins, plasticware, chips, salsa, soda, and bottled water. Still going to need to pick-up beer, along with sometype of other "side" and then stuff for dessert.

IMPORTANT NOTATION TO ALL: I bought it, but I have absolutely NO IDEA on how to prepare it. Will need volunteer for cooking!

This is coming along!
