I'm not sure he does himself I think he has someone comes after hours or during the day when no one is around because all I ever see him doing is drinking and when I mention about bringing my down to get some work done I get no respone I think he don't want to tell the truth on the whole deal looks great as everything else he or whoever does.

That ship has sailed. Although, if you bring that snazzy little YJ over to me, we could work out a deal.

Alright, got a few updates, and a bunch of pics. Finally got the wheel and tire dilema worked out. Havent done much since I sold the TrailReadys, and MTR's. Decided to go with a set of H1's and 37" Pitbull Rockers. Ordered up the pressed centers from MadMac at C+M Performance. http://www.cmperformancemachine.com/ For those of you looking for a beadlock wheel, these things are hard to beat. The price is right, and Mac is one of the best guy's to deal with.
Need to get back in the grove, and get some stuff done. The last month the wife has had me rebuilding the whole frickin house. Seems she thinks im an Amish carpenter now. Hope to get this back on track and get this pile of parts done before Labor Day.

Wheels after I got them back from the blaster.


I decided not to use the rock rings. Just to much foo foo for me this time around. Besides, with the thick ass bead on these tires I dont think Ill have to worry about damaging the lip of the rim. Guess we'll see.


I think I should have made 8 two inch welds instead of the four big ones. Little late now. I made sure not to put to much heat into each wheel. I welded one bead, and bounced back and forth between the five wheels, letting them cool.





After they were all welded up, I sanded, metal prepped them, and sprayed them with DP60 Epoxy Primer.






Finished them off with some Satin Black single stage enamel, and mounted them up.

Awesome! Where did you get your Rockers? That looks like a bad ass old truck in the back ground too.

Thanks. The truck is sub-framed with a Mustang II, flipped and notched rear with a TJ rear axle, and a small block Chevy. As for the rockers, I got them through TrailWorthy Fab via MadMac at C+M Performance Machine.
