Just got back from the cleanup. Spent Friday night at Adams (till 12:30) finalizing stuff for the cleanup, and then he couldn't go We got a lot done though

mounted and wired winch
mounted and wired CB
Mounted Ultimate Air tank
re-indexed pitman arm
modified bumper and mounted fairlead

I was able to make it up though and found out the XRC8 will pick up the front of my jeep

















Winch works great for loading and unloading the trailer...





Loaded!



Really looking like a rig now.


Big brother?

Why my jeep isn't olive drab?

Eventually the jeep will be gray with Navy markings. But I need to have the time to tear it back apart, and that won't happen with the YJ currently in pieces. It may not happen until I finally get my own garage.

I had 20 minutes the other night before I had to go some place, and didn't want to sit on my ass on a beautiful day. So I clearanced the bracket for my Ultimate Air tank to allow for a master lock. This will keep it away from Renegade II :teeheee:

man thats a nice looking flat fender, i always wanted one. i really like the cj3bs . i wouldnt worry about that bent spring to much i bent one on my cj-7 and it stayed that way for 2 years unitl i finally changed it. i like your choice on the navy colors down the road, that will make it stand out.

Thanks, I have always found it pretty damn ugly, but it's functional for what I am using it for

And the plow mount, which will double as a place to mount a vice when wheeling. The mount can be put on with one person and a jack in about 10 minutes. There is still some bracing to be done though.
