    I probably won't have a lift by then, so don't worry about it! I am definitely down for a wrench day though!

    Been tough for me to get much done on my 4runner, working 7 days per week. I did manage to wash, clay bar, and wax it about a week ago. I have the center caps off right now getting them ready to paint.
    A wrench weekend would be more in order for my 4runner. I still need to purchase the LBJs, ITREs, and OTREs. Gonna do that stuff first then on to the rear brakes.

    I need to do my LBJ's in the future as well. I'm down for a wrench fest at some point, hopefully my weekends open back up soon. And remember, BYOPB! Bring your own PBlaster!

    My wife will be having a surgery at OSU very soon. She said that she didn't mind if while we are there that I could try to hook up with you guys for a meet-n-greet. I can keep you guys posted on a date. Then we could set up a wrench fest.

    I am just happy to find some 4runner owners in this area. Marysville isn't far at all for me.

    I keep looking for your truck Jim. I work right off Sawmill and 270 at CarMax and I know you're around that area. If you see a silver 4Runner with a rooftop lightbar, it's me! Lol

    every saturday generally. Usually on lunch around 4-5pm. I work in operations in the back of the store, so I'm only free from the fortress during lunch.

    Ill be working on my lift the week of October 19th after work and putting it all together Saturday October 24.

    Normally it shouldn't take over a day to do it, but I am replacing wheel bearings, all bushings, brake lines, wheel studs, all fasteners and some other small stuff.

    Would anyone be interested in joining in on Saturday at least? That should be the fun day. Ill supply food and drinks :drunk:


    EDIT: Located in Marysville

    My address is 1512 meadowlark Ln, Marysville.

    I will probably get started around 9 and go til whenever. I don't expect anyone to help all day long or anything, and I don't expect it to take that long anyway.

    Did you end up finding a machine shop Jim? Thanks for the pizza and letting me pick your brain a bit. Not sure how much help I was but I enjoyed it.

    P.s. I think my rubber mat is still clamped to the back of your press!

    This is a long shot since the thread has been dormant for a while, but I am wondering if any of you have used this guide to find places to get the tires a bit dirty and find some good hiking? I'm new to Ohio and would like to do some exploring this summer/fall. https://www.recreation.gov/unifSearchResults.do
