    when/where is that? I've only been to a few local ones like moonshiners.

    I use to go every year, but I bet its been 8 years since I have gone.......bet some of the same stuff(junk) is on the trailers this weekend that were 8 years ago.

    upside compared to the gun show.....there will be at least 1-2 decent looking gals.....but as many or more unwashed hillbillies.

    always some cool rigs

    Last I went to 4 or 5 years ago was sponsored by 4wheelparts.com so it was just their major vendors, 4 wheel swap meet it wasn't. Just booths of vendors, not much of a actual swap meet. Haven't been back since.

    I think meeting your kid sister has moved up a few notches on my list...

    The Puyallup Moonshiners Swap Meet and the 4WheelParts "fest" are not the same. People have them confused... 4wheelparts usually has a big "booth" at the Moonshiners show but they aren't any different there than any other booth renter.


    I'll be there....looking for stuff. Had a booth quite a few years but didn't have time this year to go through all my spares and find enough to sell. Maybe next year--I'm looking in the shop and already see 4 things I should get rid of.

    I will be there in my normal spot we have two booths. We are just to the right when you enter just down from the scone both. I will have my flatbed dually in there. Stop and say hi and bs about jeeps of guns. I will have all my photos there of the cages and tube finders we build
    I am always interested in trading fab work for gun stuff

    I've never been to the moonshiners swap meet, but the 4wp truck and jeep fest kicks ass. Probably like comparing the WAC gun show to the SHOT show.

    you gonna lift that F150?

    I am hoping to lift my truck eventually. Lift kits for this truck are friggin expensive.... Wouldn't be so damn bad if I could just buy the kit and had a place to install it instead of paying a shitload of cash for somebody else to install it. Not having a lift would take me forever to do it, plus I have never installed the lift brackets on IFS. Sure I could figure it out, but trying to do it all on jack stands doesn't motivate me all that much. :)

    Anyways, the moonshiners 4x4 swap meet is pretty decent. It has gotten smaller over the years, but I seem to always find a few things I can't live without. Gives me a chance to wander around and get some cool ideas and find a few bargains. Lots of different vendors/private collector types that have booths/tables.
