Its probably going to be in about two weeks, I have to wait until I am into the new house.

I am going to be making it out of 3/16" metal, not sure on how I want to design it yet.

Got some sad news... The Jeep died and someone wanted to trade me a working F250 for it. I will be back within a year or two with a new Jeep once I get the money to buy a TJ.

I'm sorry to hear that. I have been keeping up with this thread since day one and you have done some great work. Just because you don't have a Jeep right now, does not mean that you are not a part of this family. You will get another jeep soon, but in the meantime I am sure that there are those of us on here that could use a little advice from time to time.

Thanks, its kind of sad to see it go because I put so much work and money into it. So I hope I will run into money sooner rather than later for a newer one that starts off with less rust to fix because that was a PITA

I will have to get some final pictures before it actually leaves.

I have some good, awsome and bad news. Good news, I made a tire carrier for the jeep, the awsome news it that I am keeping it/ got it running and took it to the dunes, and the bad news is that I almost killed it because it over heated and I didn't realize it; I caught it in enough time to turn it off so it didn't seize up, it was so hot that the coolant was boiling. I got some pictures that I will post later on.

That is GREAT news Plop. After all the time, work, and $$ you put into it, I hated to see you give it up. Congrats and welcome back.

I couldn't get rid of it; I felt like a dick telling the guy no, after everything was setup and "going" to happen

I didn't get many pics or any with me involved since I was taking the pictures. I will have to see if my brother and sister-in-law got any pics. Some I don't know what was going on. lol

Well, its a thing where everything is for sale; and someone wanted to buy my Jeep first, so hopefully someone will buy my Mustang or else I can't buy the newer Jeep I want.

Ya its gone. I am happy its gone, but sad to see it go. It was very strange to watch it drive away, I got to chuckle a little bit because the guy stalled it out at the end of the driveway.

Currently I have a cheapo 92 Explorer only $450 and needed a clutch and it came with the clutch kit. Only thing I have into it is a flywheel $60 and a slave cylinder about $70. So for $580 I have an alright vehicle so I can save up for something decent.

Thanks for posting the adventure
Rust sure is a pain!!! I have been working on my '87 most of the summer to help it make it through another winter.
Looking forward to the next adventure with a tj. Maybe you could just put some rectangular headlites and say it's a yj.
