I like how the third picture looks like you have spikes coming out of the roll bar. I think you might want to take those off next time too. Lol

Gotta say the biggest difference from it looking stock to off road is the tires. Looks great !

Haha yes wheels and tires were good, I have 3 diff type of wheels on 2 size of tires :O from the guy before. picked up 5 31sx10.5s and the wheels for 300 c:

Haha, those pieces of the roll bar, need a special toll to remove that I dont have, its like a hollow tip torx bit or something

Id rather not die, but it is legal to ride with your windshield down if you wear eye protection and the proper tie on the hood/windshield, because its "factory" but I wouldnt push it with a cop hahaha.

Thanks for the compliments everyone

What do they look like?

Oh and she will be getting bedlined on the flares, rear fenders, grill, running boards, bezels, possibly bumpers, and a few other lil spots as soon as its warm, so itll look a lil different again

Just ordered a Novak shiter cable, rest of my money is waiting to do a JB sye, tatton DS, control arms, and for steel to make a custom flat skid.

Big plans for GS!

I got to give it to ya man. When I first saw you building that stinger I didn't know how it was going to turn out but it looks great. Good job so far boss!

P.S. If there cable shifter is anything like every single damn part they make for the YJ's then youlll freaking love it.

Oh I am so exciting to have a smoothly operating shifter for rausch creek.

The stinger did turn out nice, its light weight, protects the winch, and is pretty strong between the DOM and 1/2 inch plate in 3/16 brackets. I love frame width stuff too I can climb pretty much anything now so much easier.

Plans are to save up and do the TT, me and my friend are doing a custom gas tank tuck and custom skids for the belly. Then I will move on to outboard the shocks and highlining stock fenders. How long will it take? who knows...

Anyway... On a more serious note. Looks good. I can't wait to start welding up my own stuff. And once I get my fancy pants engineering auto cad skills down next semester I can start designing up stuff for the HSJT people. Mainly you, since you actually make stuff. It'd probably be nice to have a 3D version of some plans.

oh well. And heck yeah I am down for that. I'm excited for some bigger stuff for the jeep. You need to find someplace you can get stuff CNC cut at school and do some cool stuff with that. I need a job that pays better. I'm looking for a better one next summer.

I do believe we have a CNC at UK down in the machine shop. And we have a CNC machine at my old high school, but I think it needs the right stuff to cut metal. It only cuts wood right now. Good thing though, is that engineering majors can use the machine shop. I might just have some fun down there.

Winning. You should design some gussets to use to weld up a bumper, you could make ones with little jeeps driving and use it to Reenforce a stinger to the bumper. I wish I had access to that kind of stuff. My buddy just got a job running a plasma table. Maybe he can get some stuff done.

Rear Bumper really isn't anything special, I will see what I can do in a bit. TT was in the works but I think I am going to armor up, outboard shocks and a few other little things for now. Money just isn't there for the stuff I want and I will be done working and starting school in a little over a month.

Engine and Gas Tank Skids

I want to weld up my own engine and gas tanks skids, the Gas tank Will be a pretty basic, and probably boxy because I don't have access to bending equiptment. Will mount using existing holes and cover the stock skid for now. After I my trip to Rausch when I get some down time I may raise it about an inch. Or heck I might do it if I get the time now. As far as the engine skid, they all look fairly basic as far as I can tell, I will make a cutout for the oil pan and bolt it up using the Motor mounts and the forward trans skid holes, and anything else I can find. Will add a small cutout for the driveshaft if I need to. I am going to meansure dimensions and then talk to my steel guy, I can get stuff dirt cheap from him. Everything will be 3/16s plate, I can get him to do some cuts if I know them ahead of time. The rest will be with an angle grinder or a saws all. I have 4 days off this week and 4 days off next week, plenty of time to get to work. So any suggestions to get me moving would be great. I am going to go measure now.
