Fire the welder that messed up the DS for the re-do.

-and something tells me that three enthusiasts would have run rings around those guys.
It looked a bit...disorganized, but that's merely my perception.

Still it's great to get some insight into the conversion process.

Thanks for posting the video!

hmm, i like the idea of a jeep truck but i dont really like this one, i like the J8s though or at least the 4 doors converted to a two door are really cool. My favorites are Warns Big Red and Sarge which i think was made by AEV and was in JP magazine

The first was a Weld-on kit, the second was a Bolt-on kit I assume..
