    I would be up for it as well. Seems like there are quite a few in the NOVA area, Great Falls, South Riding, Alexandria, etc. Just found this site that lists in them per state. http://americaonwheels.org/cars-and-coffee-locations/#virginia I've been to a few of these events. Not too many...

    Fabrication in the DMV?

    There is a new shop, Bull Run Overland in Manassas, that carries Front Runner. He is doing a sale this month. They just opened right before COVID and the owner is a good guy. https://www.bullrunoverland.com/

    Builds FJ-43 Build

    Sounds good. I currently have a York Air Compressor running on mine, but I'm having some air pressure issues. Just pulled out all the hoses and going to start at the compressor and move forward to see if we can fix it. If not, ARB will be the route I go. Currently running onboard air and ARB...

    Sorry to hear that and a bit surprised you are having those issues so early into driving it. I would have hoped the shop would have tested all of that out. Glad you were able to get it figured out. Hopefully, there is no long term damage to the ARB.

    @Stumpalama Great find and tons of good info in there. Sounds like the SM420 is the way to go and I'm already built for it, which is helpful. Now to find a replacement kit and shop to take a look. Really appreciate all the assistance.

    SM420 Slipping and Shop Recommendation

    @Stumpalama really appreciate the insight and agree, I would prefer to have a transmission SME do the work. I didn't' realize all of those other factors would come into play. I feel like when I've read the other threads about the swap, it was "fairly" simple. Fully recognize I still have a...

    SM420 Slipping and Shop Recommendation

    I recognize the SM420 rebuild is in the hundreds ($400?) and the H55F in the thousands ($4-5K?). I would love to work with someone and learn how to do it myself. My understanding of the SM420 & Orion combo is a really strong set up at least per some older posts. Pending cost, I would be...

    I have had the pleasure to work with LCH and Frank (@FloridaFJ80) at their shop in Maryland. They were extremely responsive and very honest about what I could/should do with my LC. I will definitely continue to support them and hope others will do the same.
