I didn't know Flint still existed. Good to know there are living/breathing people still in Michigan.

we're tough eastsiders! the news about flint is always worse than actuality. and it depends on where you live. the nice thing is great people, close to the north, not crowded. and we can be off road as soon as we leave our driveway!!!

Hi from another Michigander : )
question: did you weld up your frame? or have someone else do it? I have a 93 Wrangler that needs welding on the frame.

i bought a frame kit off ebay for the rear arches and a friend did the welding after i did the prep work(removing parts and grinding surfaces clean), we had to do some trimming but it went on good. i also had a bit of a crack developing where the parking brake runs through the frame under the drivers door so i bought some flat stock (3/16") and he welded that also. it's not pretty but it's functional. it was a 2 day job.
