so i was able to put the jeep back on all four wheels yesterday, reinstalled the lift in the front and today i pulled the jeep out of the garage. it seemed to hold together got some more bracing and finish welding to do. and then paint and beat it to death out on the trails.

When I read your first post, right after you made it, I thought "yeah right this guy will never follow through with it." Guess I was wrong. Good work. What did you weld everything with? Will you be driving this on the road or just off road?
