Well I did it.


I welded my turdy five. Reason????? They do not make a Spool for a 35. It's only a trail Jeep. I trailer it to the trail. If it brakes I'll replace it with something better. >>>>>>Flame away.

Re: Well I did it.

You have a spare 35 setup and geared on the trailer?

When that ring gear brakes, your going to have a hard time getting out with no rear end..

Re: Well I did it.

Holly cow! A little dab will do ya on the spider gears. All you need is to weld a couple of teeth together on each side. Then hopfully the welds crack and it stays locked but you can get it apart if you need too. How manny rods did you use? My first jeep had a welded front and a rebult factory posi in the rear. Manual steering! I had a back like a boxer after awhile from muscling the wheel.

Re: Well I did it.

It's a none "C" clip axle so IF it brakes I should be able to get out of the mountains where I hunt. Yes I have a winch. It cost me nothing except about six hours of my time a few welding rods and some soc (allen) head bolts welded in for filler. A real Tard would have spent $300 on an factory locker for a turdy five. If you are going to weld a rear end, I think I did it correctly. I removed it from the Jeep and welded in on my work bench. BTW Hump A Stump How many rear ends have you welded????

Re: Well I did it.

I doubt you will find anyone on here that will tell you that you did a good job. You asked for a flame job and you are getting it.
