Good welder choice. My brother has the same one and put a lot of wire through it. Only negative I have is the non infinity heat adjustment.

Yea I love it so far. I could see where that would be nice, but I've had no issues so far

Tore my front axle apart tonight to fix the leaking passenger side seal. Apparently I some how lost the spring on the spring seal...hopefully a new seal will fix all issues. Also putting new knuckles on and properly torque my ball joints should help my front end

Had a great weekend at the dunes. Ran around all weekend without breaking anything and even used 4wd this trip. I forgot how helpful it is for climbing shit.

Well I had to make it look cool. Can't be stuck in 3" of sand, that just isn't as visually appealing haha

You need a locker instead of limited slip especially if you're gonna be 2wd for a while

Set up some gears in @DozerJK front 60 for him. 27inlb preload, .006" backlash, and a great pattern.

Haven't made much progress on my own jeep, I've gone to the dunes 3 of the last 4 weekends though with no major issues. Heading up north next weekend to hit some trails then Drummond the weekend after.

It's been nice taking on side fab jobs and stuff to make a little extra money. My gfs dealership just gave me an older snow plow for my truck so I've gotta make a mount for that hopefully before it gets too cold out and make some more cash once it snows. I started collecting parts for my V8 swap but I've been busy with work and I'm going to start traveling for work soon so that project is put on hold. Most likely won't happen until sheet I buy a house next spring/summer.

For now I just need to build up money to dump into my front 60.
