Hey Everybody my name is Eddie and I just moved here from Coral Springs FL about 4mo ago and well in a nutshell im an electrician with a passion for all 4x4 and off-road trucks!!! and in my free time I'm an ASE drive-train and suspension tech . I did Fab work(custom roll-cages and bumpers) for a few shops in south FL as well as drive-train and suspension work(lockers, t-cases, gears).
Now im working on this red XJ to make it my own trail crawler-expedition rig and so far it has:
msd ignition, advanced timing 20*, mild cam , 9;8;1 ratio, borla headers, borla exhaust and a throttle body spacer.
All the other stuff (new lift, snorkel, gears, lockers, bumpers roof rack etc )is coming as soon as it warms up outside cuz its to cold for me to be doing work outside Very Happy
well I'm looking forward to meet everybody in the next meeting or event hosted by north shore jeeps and thanks looking

Here some pics of my work and my XJ , happy wheelin everybody

Damn Eddie, It looks like I picked the right guy to leave a note for. Welcome, again. For what it's worth, I was born and raised in Plantation. Lived there from 74-2000.

Eddie-

Glad to see you made it over here. If you remember, I'm the one that sold you the BFG A/T a few months ago for your XJ and told you about this forum! We'll be having a pizza party in a few weeks during which we'd love all the new members to come. Keep an eye out on here for the information on when and where.

And post up some more pics!

Edit: Just saw Jarret left a note on the XJ! Hahaha small world.

they're not that hard to do just need some DOM tubing (1.5" or 2") and a hydraulic pipe bender, I guess the hard thing to do would be to come up with the design for the cage LOL

If you've got a bender, I'll be hitting you up for some assistance later this year. Figure building one for my rig would be a good idea.

Dang, that is some nice looking work, not to mention some impressive modifications to your own rig.

While I've never been, I know a lot of Boy Scouts from Coral Spring, as they used to come up to our camp in Barnstead, NH every year!

I'm trying to find the best date for the pizza party (I'll likely be hosting) so keep your eyes peeled. Looking forward to meeting you!
