Looking for San Diego FSJ'rs ...

There's a group of 10 San Diego FSJ'ers that have found each other. We get together from time to time to wrench, wheel, and encourage each other to work through our FSJ issues. A kind of support team I guess? LOL If you are in the greater San Diego area and would like to get involved with others that feel your pain, we would like to hear from you. Shoot Chief Gunner or Myself a P.M. and we will let ya know where and when the next get together is going to be and what we are going to be doing.

To second what Metal Twister is saying, SOCAL has quite a bit to offer, and some FSJ support is a great way to enjoy all SOCAL is offering. Let us know where your at, and lets build a solid FSJ presence in Southern California.

Hey Chief I was thinking of a San Diego FSJ Caravan to the TDS Desert Safari might be cool. Spend a day or what ever?

Cool. Maybe we'll shoot up there Sunday. Dunno which Jeep though.

Actually, probably not, cause there's nothing of interest going on Sunday. lol

Hello from Fallbrook

I am fairly new to the forum but would be willing to join in on a get together. I have a 1980 Wagoneer 360 and a 1965 Wagoneer 230 and am located in the north county in Fallbrook.

Let me know when the next meeting of the minds would be and I'll be sure to be there

Carl

Do you guys ever go cruising out at Superstition Mountains? When the season hits ill be down to go for a cruise. If the wagon isnt ready ill cruise in my truck. I just like meeting new people to go wheelin especially in a FSJ Mob! That would be awesome!

Thanks Metal Twister! Currently the engine is ready to get dropped in, it might go back in this weekend, for meanwhiles here are a few pics....


This is when we were picking it up, had to put some rolling tires...Had to put it on some jack stands in order to put the rolling tires on. It fell off from one of the jack stands cus there was a strong earthquake and knocked it off haha. It was the one a week after from the Easter earthquake.

Looking good! Our little San Diego band of 10 misfits has grown to the lucky number of 13 FSJ's. Thanks for checking in guys...

The invite is still on the table. Anyone in The Greater San Diego or neighboring community's that actually wheels their rigs join us for a variety of runs. Desert runs, Big Bear Runs, Local Crawling events, Expedition Runs, Adventure Runs, and many others. Great Group of folks so far with the exception of that one guy! NOT!

Hey all, guess you can count me in, from Temecula. I just bought a 67 wagoneer. Brought it home and got it runnin, thought I had scored a great deal. Then I promptly tore the motor mount off of the frame. Is this common? Rig has the 327 vigelante engine. Anyone know a welder in the area? Hope I dont have to pull the engine to fix this.

sounds good.. i have a 89 GW i call the swagoneer .. i have only seen a handful of fsjs in san diego and non are lifted .. .. i am happy to be apart of this and possibly wheel soon..
i am from San diego and i am currently in shanghai china till oct 20 helping my friend and running the first and only high end off road jeep shop in china .. we import only american parts.. we are the sole disributor of KING shocks,teraflex,BDS,bushwacker,ARB,alloy,procomp,w eathertech, and all major brands in the USA. we mostly do Jk's and wj's since those are the most popular in china.

i would be happy to lend my knowledge and experiance in jeeps to all FSJ's in san diego . i have been a off road and muscle car fabricator and mechanic for 8 years. i also have my own in house valve grinding set =-up which my cousin does all the valve jobs and is the best in sd.

here is my 89 grand swagoneer i got for free from a friend that couldnt get it smogged.. lol lucky me im a good mechanic had to put a header on it since the old one blew a base ball size hole into it cause the heat rizer valve was welded shut..
when i come back to sd i will be pulling the motor (nothing wrong with it now but i like mine built!) with pop up pistons and custom schneider cam of coarse and heads hogged out with bigger valves .also 6 inch lift with king shocks since i am certified from king shocks to rebuild and service them

here she is as she stands 89 with 150000 miles on it


and here is how i want her when i get back


thanks,

Wanab4X4,
Looking good. I never knew the offroad community was so large in China. How are you going to lift your Jeep? I did the spring over axle and shackle flip on mine. Got me about 6-7" of lift and works well. What part of San DIego are you going to be in?

Welcome to the "elite" S.D. FSJ owners. I have quite a few buddys with FSJ's and ALL of them are lifted but one guy and he drives his harder than the rest of us. From what I see you'll be getting to know them soon. Hit me up when you get back into town. Maybe we can get together and wheel.

SOA is definatley the way to go, you're on the right track. One of my lifted buddys is Chief Gunner who posted earlier. I helped him a little with his SOA and man that thing work good in the dirt.

Hope to see ya in S.D. soon.


Dave.
