Plan is to get final bars in place, tabs for skins welded on, and do final welding and hopefully get it painted up in the next few weeks.

We got a bunch of crap to get machined by Jesse's brother including boring out knuckles for 3/4" rod ends, front dana 60 hubs to 9/16 studs to match the 14-bolt, and making up driveshafts for us.

Big crew tonight. We had white rhino, jeepm715, pwrwagon, and jeepm715 & pwrwagon's nephew and I working tonight. Thanks!

We double and triple checked the chassis to make sure we've welded up everything. It's been on both of its sides and didn't crush itself under its own weight.

I still need to put in some panel tabs in places where i know where they need to go and check if we have some seat belt tabs. We need to make a shoulder harness bar, but we're out of tube so we'll have to pick up a few feet from somewhere. We might rework the radiator mount as part of the winch mount.

Plan is try and get it painted before Christmas and start reassembly after Christmas.



Trans is with Tom. Sounds like it was a 4L60E and put together poorly by the last guy. He's upgrading parts for us and getting the manual shift kit in.

Axles are with cj7ontherocks to get gears. Going with 5.13s and Detroits front and rear. Knuckles, high steer arms, and hubs are going to JeepM715's brother for machining and 9/16 studs.

I like the paper panels to keep the weight down.

That winch looks like something from Battlestar Galactica....

...it's probably not cool to say that's cool but it's still cool.

No, after I mounted it on the front the jeep, I took it back off and set it on the bandsaw since I didn't want to get paint on the new cardboard box mount.
