I have no mechanical aptitude, so where do you go to get work done around here?

It really depends on what you are wanting to have done.  There are several club members who could help with some easier mods and several places we would suggest for more difficult ones.  What are you wanting to do?

To start out, need to add a CB and next do a lift kit. May be wanting to do gearing later, and  a rear bumper. If I do lockers may make sense to do it at the same time as the gears.

 

Does not sound too hard; until I get my knee replaced need to keep kneeling/bending to a minimum.

Bohannan's in Bentonville does good work for a local shop.  Also see our Members Directory page for other options.  Also our club has access to a shop now and we will start scheduling some shop days where you can get some help with the less technical mods, like lift and CB.

My garage and let me know if you ever need something custom fabbed and MADE IN THE USA.  I have also been doing some bolt-on work here lately and am charging $30 an hr. for work like that.   I am in Van Buren though but I have done lots of work for people from NWA.

For a CB your best bet is to find a truck stop for an antenna, and walmart for the radio itself. thats what ive got thats lasted me since sophomore year of high school. Cobra is about the best you can get for a radio

When are you wanting to install the CB and the lift?  Our club has access to a nice shop now.  We have two club members that have keys and one of them need to be there while it's open so we just open it around their schedules.  I am needing to replace a u-joint soon and am trying to schedule some time for the shop to be open for that.

I can also hook anyone up who needs some welding, mechanical or fab work.

I'm an ASE certified tech and have a fully equipped shop at home in Bentonville

if we use the "club" shop I'll help for free, at my place I usually charge per job, works out cheaper than by the hour rates

Good deal.  When the lift arrives, we'll go from there.
