How did that bender work out for you? Do you remember the brand or specs? I've heard mixed reviews about those types of benders, so I'm don't know if I should spend the money for one or just have someone bend it for me.

I personally had one of those benders. Didn't work for me one time. Even packed the tube with sand and heated it. Worked like garbage for me. Bought a jd2 bender. Never kinked a tube again

for what I used it for it was fine, but if i had ended up making a stinger I would have had someone else bend it because it does kink the tube.

So update: I drove my Jeep 4 hours to the mountains for school, and it surprisingly had no issues. when I got here however, my muffler began rattling and I think it is coming from the inside. Due to a lack of tools I took it to a mechanic to get the problem fixed and he told me that he does not fix mufflers so I would have to take it elsewhere for that. He also noted my rear U-bolts were loose and my front bearings were bad. He showed me what he was talking about, but I refuse to pay a mechanic to do anything I can do myself so I ordered bearings, and U-bolts and I am going to have to find a way to get that done using the resources I have.

To make things worse, as I was leaving the mechanic my sputtering and bogging down problem returned to haunt me so now I have to deal with that. I am considering the thought that it may be a clogged Cat so I am going to replace that along with the muffler. My plan is to use a hacksaw and chop the muffler and cat, and use claps to put the new ones on until I can get home and weld it in.

I will get some pics up soon. I just got the bearings yesterday and U-bolts should be here today

Its going to be interesting; I have limited tools and equipment, and I will be doing it in the Lowes parking lot... the plan is to jack it up with my high lift onto jack stands, change the bearings, then jack the rear up onto jack stands with the high lift, change the U-bolts one at a time, then find a way to do the muffler

So update, it snowed on the day we planned to do the bearing change so I have not managed to get that done yet. Other than that, school has just gotten in the way. After Easter break I should have more time since I will be done with some prior obligations so I have plans to do it then.

As far as the axle hunting goes, I have not found anything worth buying/trading for so it looks like I will be going to a junk yard in early may. If I find an axle with 4.10s then I will swap it right in and change the gears when funds permit. If I do not find an axle with 4.10s then I will wait to swap it in and re-gear it first.

I have a job already lined up for summer so if I secure that then I will be well on my way.

Other small projects include re-enforcing the spare tire carrier and moving stuff around so 35s fit, building an overhead mount for my CB, and possibly tube fenders. I found a DIY kit that includes pre-bent tubes for all 4 fenders for $300 so I will probably be taking that route.

I still have a lot to do before I can start building and swapping but May will be here before I know it!

So update: the weather has changed so I am going to do my Bearings this week. I got a 36mm bolt from home already, as well as a floor jack so I think I am ready to go!

I also bought some parts to fix my muffler in the meantime. I got 2 bolt on hangers, two adapters, 4 bolt clips, and a flexible pipe tube. I just need something to get me home so I can either buy new parts or weld it all together.

I am still looking at gears and shops

So Thursday some of my friends drove up from home to help me change my bearing. It was... interesting... to say the least. Surprisingly we had no big setbacks, and didn't really break any bolts. the 36mm bolt attached to the axle shaft was hard, but we used the handle on the lift as a breaker bar and that made life easy. The hacksaw unfortunately took too long so I am back on the drawing board trying to find a sawzall I can borrow. I have an idea of getting one, but I am not sure how well it is going to work. I have to have it chopped, and fixed before May 6th so i can drive home without the rattle. This the one of the pics of the bearing! I have a comparison one somewhere but I forget what I did with it...
