Re: My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

I can't swing today. Varmint #1 has some school stuff going on.

I will send you a PM. See if we can't plan something farther out.

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Ended up going out for a couple hours near home

https://youtu.be/PTDcuGmnzq8

I rode shotgun i like this quick loop when it gets sloppy its not quute there yet.

Then drug a bucket inside

After riding shotgun im back to thinking in the bump stop direction. With a 4" bump id be bumping nearly all my up travel.

Or 4" coils

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Today. Finished yanking axles out of my mockup rig. Then I wanted it off the ground for future mockup up.

My stands survived dragging it around

Yanked off uneeded lower portions of front fenders is now ready for bumper mock up.

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

So ive layed down some burns anyone would be proud of and some not so much.
Long runs are hard. Damn good practice running long.
Im thinking on my next run its 14" last one was 10 I had 1 bobble

Ran slightly down hill after dropping .5volts and wire speed slightly. Picture won't upload grrrr.

Would be cool to have someone like rcp to get pointers from. Long runs take it out of me. Burn faster faster fast shit fffff grrrrr

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Here's the pics. Im sure it warped but I don't think its critical.
I cut the bender tabs and tried to clean up the burn through from the other side. Fully welded inside and out.
It's 3/16" plate not sure im crazy about that but I guess its going to work

The last one is the freeway this morning

Test fit.

This sticks out about 1.5" farther then what I built on my jeep my winch is on the extreme top instead of the bottom like this one.
For all but the most extreme angles this one doesn't do to bad for approach angle.
Also surprised at the fitment. This is the 148$ ebay kit.

I did no mock up on the jeep only checked mounting width before burning winch box up.

Thanks .
My goal was to burn and not touch it with a grinder . I still can't get over the price. I might order the rear version but I'm not sure if its a cut n fold bumper or not.

This bumper is cheap enough a person could order them just for practice material to weld on. Then have a bumper at the end instead of just trash.

My jeep build with photos over the last few years.

Been awhile since mines been in for work.

Decided I want to plant the front end alittle better. Made a upper arm bracket to raise it total of 1.75" in the upper hole and lower raises about .5" over where it is now.

This will give me an adjustment range of 7.5' 8.75 and 10 of axle seperation . Plan to run in the 8.75 spot. They lower arms have two positions thats how I get the 10". Ill save that for when if I go bigger than 33" tires.

This bracket at full stuff just barely clears frame and oil pan actually fits just between them. Going from 2 5/8 to 2" wide bracket to help this tight clearance and down to 1/4" whats in there now is 3/8" tabs at 2 5/8 inside width.

Picked up 40' of 6x1/4 plate so ive got material to play with

Can't decide if I make my own frame stiffners or just buy some then finish my frame side control arm brackets.

I thought I had a spare 7/8 heim with 2" wide misalignment but offcourse i can't find it so I'll have to order one before I hack the current off the truss.
