Thanks a lot the windshield frame is being used too because mine is rusted. Hows yours coming along, when I picked up the parts from you, you were sending it to Mad to install the axle they built for you.

I'm not really concerned with the cage matching the tow rig, I'll have the black soft top on it for that while towing. I would however like the cage to stand out a little. If I do silver its going to be more in the slate family.

Got the axle in the jeep and it's awesome. Should never break! Just need to get rid of my carb and switch to propane so I can actually beat it on the hills.
Jon.

P.s Can't wait to see your jeep after it's done! You should come to the badlands with us when we go sometime this fall.

I think that orange is the only color for a real jeep. All other colors are gay.

No i think that 89yj is a God. I saw his rig and it will crush yours, and leave orange paint.

Eh, I've seen it, I've worked on it, it's nothing special. I watched his front wheel fall of on Drummond Island once, that was worth a laugh.

Got the Jeep painted today, the tub and everything is still at the painters I may have it back tomorrow. I did bring the cage back though. I could have painted the stuff myself but a friend of mine offered to do it for me. I figured he paints $100,000 show cars, he could tackle my Jeep. This would be pretty much the only thing I didn't do on the Jeep myself.


Just a little too bright to look at in the sun light.



The bucket on the corner of the rack has some of the paint on the sides of it for comparison



I will try to get the rest of the parts tomorrow for pics.

Some more pics, the camera and sunlight combo actually make it look more red than it is.

I think your roll cage needs a bit more... everything.. looks way to open.
