Time for some clean up.

Dropped the jeep to Benny today, lots and lots of little issues and 1 or 2 not so little.

Little consists of fixing a shit ton of cracked welds (all around the rear truss, some around the rear coilovers, 1 around the computer box and then the mount for the gearbox).

Bigger jobs are taking off the rear hoops for coilovers and building new, bent a little different to get rid of the rubbing and made a lot stronger. Amazed I didn't lose a shock with the cracks that were there. While there he will shorten my steering arm to get rid of the issue with the driver side tire being kicked out an inch and still have room for adjustment.

Hopefully that will hold me til season ends and I can get full hydro on her.

Now there's room to adjust and tires are straight



Damn nice welds Benny



Ok, this is the backside of my shock hoop in the rear ........not a crack, actually put together that way.....getting scrapped and done right in a few weeks. (hard to get a good pic in tight spot....) Adding bumps on the back when that gets done...oh, and we will be using Grade 8 bolts when redone too....ahem.

I'm not gonna name any names, but I think they may have been done by someone who recently built a buggy and consistently drives like a pissed off teenager.....
