Nice welds, I've been following your build, you do nice work.

I just picked up a couple more toys.
I picked this Lincoln 275 Stick/Tig machine Monday. The lower controls for the Tig should be here today. I needed a stick welder, plus i needed a AC tig, so I think a I covered that.

I picked this Miler Maxstar 200 DC machine 2 weeks ago used for 200 bucks with all the leads, regulator, foot peddle and torch tip. Works well I ran it up on high with no issues.

Thanks man! I love my plasma. I need a tig it would help on stuff sometimes. You have a lot of nice equipment there as well. I only have one mig and have thought about buying another to have one for small wire and one for big wire so i don't have to switch spools all the time.

I really never wish i had an arc handy though just seems pointless with what i do.

Can't go wrong with the name brand stuff. Lincoln, miller, esab, hobart... I have a 220v 180a weldmark. It's made by Hobart with all miller parts. It's a bit cheaper becuase of the name.

I have honestly welded with "cheapo" machines and they do ok but you can tell the difference for sure. Also what drove me towards mine was the duty cycle. I hate to wait on a welder and i have in the past and it sucks.

Check out craigslist for some good deals. I got my 80a plasma for $500. Just beware deals that seem too good of course.

I would say if your not using it a ton a 110v 140a machine can do a lot for you. Plus then you don't have to have dedicated circuts. I used to be a journeyman elecrician so wiring for me is pretty cheap and easy.

The best thing to do is get a machince, a GOOD welding helmet, and start burning.

If you don't already, buy yourself an auto-darkening helmet (Hobart makes a nice inexpensive one). It makes life much easier, and is especially helpful if you're just learning.

Thanks for the advice.

Which type of welder do you recommend for general use for now?

Yeah. My Dad knows how to weld, and he's told me before that the auto-darkening helmets are where it's at.

Any 110v miller, lincoln, esab, hobart. MIG. Just try to get one that will max over 125a.

Maybe just use flux core wire at first and you can add a tank later. Most migs will com with a regulator for adding a tank later. Also maybe some .023, and some .030 wire would get you a great start.

Read thru the owners manual when you get one. Honestly my owners manual was awesome for showing some tips. Miller, lincoln, and easb all have how to stuff on their websites as well.

Couple pics from 2 weeks before the event helping clean up the trails.

Yes i'm stuck, lol!




^ This is the cat that was helping us on the trails. It was stuck damn bad. Believe it or not the YAM and a zj hooked up and helped him get out.

Some new stuff for the YAM, I got an awesome deal on some 1.25" spacers. $60 for all four. Slapped em' on. I have some pics but really it's not that noticable. You'd think a 2.5" wider stance would be noticeable but... Anyway I'll get some before and after pics.

I also got with the tube monkey and got the roll cage design figured out. Now i just need to come up with the money. LOL!

IIRC he said only 20. But i'll tell you there is a lot of trails and stuff packed into 20 acres.

250 jeeps wheeled for 6 hours, and countless jeeps were stuck here and there. We worked hard to make some difficult stuff and succeded. I still don't think i got thru all the trails.

The pic with my wife in it i was stuck. It looked like an easy spot til i got into it. I didn't feel so bad when the 03 rubicon on 35's got stuck right after i did. LOL!

Right on. You could have some fun on 40 if it's done right for sure. A few jeeps, some chain saws and a bobcat or small dozer can make quick work of it.

I am sure if you had some routes planned out and asked for some help you'll get it. It's like free(sorta) wheeling time too.

Most of the trails are already there, they just need a little work. We'll see how it goes after deer and turkey season.

Got some new/used cavalier seats from take a part yesterday for $35. They directly bolted in the place of my worn, worn out factory seats. I'm gonna get some neoprene covers for them so they match the jeep a bit better.
They are awesome compared to the stock seats and fit great. By the time all is said and done i'll have two waterproof seats that are super comfy for the price of 1 new seat.
Also hoping to get the steering linkage upgraded soon and do a tie rod flip. Other than that just been driving ther crap out of her.
