    Default Sunday 5/17, Amp Hill (changed from Mother's Day)

    I'm planning on wheeling Sunday 5/17 if anyone cares to join in. Would like to meet around 9 or 9:30am.

    I'm a maybe. I too am tied up with broken stuff needing to be fixed and stuff waiting for upgrades.
    Worst case the XJ might stand up to one more trip before the steering box falls off the frame.

    Zuk kindly pointed out that the 10th is Mother's Day...I had overlooked that. (NOW 5/17, not Mother's Day)

    Having said that, I'm quite certain Mom know's my love is not limited to Mother's Day, so I'm still game. If it looks like I'll be wheeling by myself, I'd be willing to reschedule for the next Sunday.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for reminding me. I do have to go by the cemetery and maybe have breakfast with my dad but that shouldn't stop me from wheeling. LOL
    Tim, thanks for those links but my real problem is the box is loose internally. Yea, I'll just plate the frame with 1/4" inside and out while I have the box out and that will prevent the frame cracking that XJ's are know for. Its really finding the time to get it done.
    I really want to go hydro assist but my wheeling funds are tight right now with the other "expenses" I've incurred.

    Alright, let's scrub 5/10 and reschedule for Sunday 5/17. I'll edit the thread title.

    Jay can you do the 17th instead?
    I think you'll have a greater chance of people actually turning out if it isn't mother's day.
    Plus I know I'll have the ChevYota back together again by then.
