Hope everybody is well! Life in the face as i like to say.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

I have 2 XJ's one is a stalled LS swap/build the other is my mall crawler, maybe getting a 3rd for the kid to beat around the property through the trees. Been working on my Commando lately.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

Hi.

The Jeep's always ready to hit the trail. Just re-vamped my front bumps, and itching to get a trip in soon. Then it's snow season!

I'd love to see some posting again. I tapered off my posting mostly because I felt like I was wasting my time when all you get is crickets.

I know a few of us will be making our annual pilgrimage (14th year!) to TSF next month if anyone wants to come out an play.

Is the NWC dead?

Yeah seems pretty dead I was all excited to come back with the new Jeep but it's dead as can be in here.

Is the NWC dead?

You guys post about the NWC being dead, but don't do anything to contribute to it staying alive.

If you want to see activity, contribute! Post a build thread, add a post to the random thoughts thread, picture of the day thread, or better yet post an event in the staging area. Maybe others want to get out and wheel too, but don't have a group to go with?

We will be looking for a board of directors for 2020 next month. All of you commenting on how quiet the NWC is, now is your chance to walk the walk. If all you want to do is talk, then I'll gladly keep one of the seats warm and the lights on.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

Torx, any info on the TSF trip you mentioned next month? I don't know any of the local members, but would enjoy coming out for some trail riding if it's suitable for a lightly built rig

I'm not a regular here.

But it's a dead platform. The ones left are either already built or totally whooped by 20 years of DD status.

You should come out to the northwest. Plenty of solid XJs running around. quite a popular vehicle out here as well.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

We had a meet n greet a couple of years ago. It was nice to meet everyone in person. It would be great if we could do that more often. I'm not able to make the offroad events because of my work schedule unless I can schedule out way in advance.

We could also have a shop day or garage day where we could meet up and work on a project together or just BS in the driveway with a cold one staring at the Jeeps saying 'yep' or something else non coherent. Que the King of the hill scene. lol

There are at least 2 other lifted XJ's in my neighborhood and yet I've never talked to the owners. Again my stupid work schedule.

Probable be starting a build thread soon. I want to build LAs front and rear. Will need some help.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

That would be fun. A recent move into an apartment has left me with minimal opportunities for driveway beer drinking and wrench turning.

Re: Is the NWC dead?

Keep in mind that get togethers don't have to be initiated by the BOD, anyone can organize a meet up.

Got any dates for this? I might be willing to come out and camp if somebody has seat space for me. Still have an XJ but recently purchased an LJ that will likely be my future rig.
