Nice work on the belly up job! I found your build in the tummy tuck thread and your work is inspiring. I like your fenders a lot. I have to make flares on mine cause Oregon sucks like that. Im still in the parts collecting stage... Your D30 is locked up IIRC? Have you up graded shafts on it yet? If so was it cause you busted them or just being proactive? Keep up the good work man!

Replaced master/slave clutch cylinders today. I had a leak for a while but i the clutch was getting really weak and would randomly loose clutch pressure. Changed both with a new sealed units from napa. Took about and hour ish.

Clutch feels great now.

Well, it's been a while. All is well with the jeep. I found a smoking deal on a winch. XRC8 smittybuilt. It was $125 Used. The guy said it would only go one direction and thought it was the realy. Turned out one of the wires was in the wrong spot. So i got it working.

I built a winch plate and added it to the bumer that i had built previously. I also did not like the stock relay box and wanted a way to make power not always be applied to the winch. I built my own box for the realy and a 500cont/1000amp max switch. I also placed it down to the side. I like the low profile of it too. I also recessed the winch fairlead as far back on the front as i could to keep it as much out of harms way as possible. Fianlly i upgraded all of the winch wires to 4ga. It is a bit more stout. Only have a couple of pics right now. I need to oil and spool the line a few more times to get it trained better and need to get stuck to test it properly.

Halfway through this thread I updated my craigslist ad for my like new 35's for sale. Added "will trade for MIG welder." Haha.

Very cool build.

Those rocker guards and that tool box are exactly what I want. Did you happen to do a write up on either one?

No write ups. With the tool box I made a cardboard template as posted in the pics. I then laid it out on 1/8th in plate. Where ever it bends I scored it. Bent it. Then welded it up.

The sliders are angle Iron. 5" tall 3 to 3" wide. The bar part is 1 1/4" square tube. U just laid out what I wanted and welded it up.

Glad you like them! Thanks!

Latest project code named: Project over kill rear seat install, or Project turret mount m60. Not sure yet. lol!
Anyway the idea thinking ahead to a "real" roll cage and tieing the front seats into it made me think of this. How would i tie the rear seat for my son to the cage too? Well really it does not have to be tied to the cage as long as it's tied into the fram it would be virtually the same.
I picked up another cavalier seat from the take a part. I just wanted one good seat in the back with neck and head support. The factory rear bench seat totally blows for anyone having to set in it anyway. Also i wanted more storage for gear and junk when on the trails.
This is what ensued.... lol




The red tote fits in good but eventually i will have a tool box mounted there. Not sure if i am gonna make that or buy it yet. Also I am 6'2" and i can fit back there now pretty darn good. I could put in some hours in that seat for sure if i had too...

Sidestep stuff:









Curious to what you used for the plate and what you attached the bottom of the sliders to underneath.
These turned out very cool, quite impressive.

(I originally wrote the following, thinking your thread was only one page long, and do not have time to read it all, right now, so please forgive me if the questions I'm asking, below, have already been answered).

Your welding and fabrication skills are very impressive!

Are you trained or self-taught? Are you using MIG or stick? (From what I can see, it looks like some good, clean stick-welding....)

And I like your welding table, as well!

Is there a story behind that?

How thick is that table's top plate?

Do you mind if I ask how much that plate cost and where you found it?


Thanks much--your speedy work is inspirational--okay--I'll admit it--it would be "inspirational" if it weren't so intimidating!

Y-Yes

Well, I definitely missed the fact that this was not a recent thread.

Thank you for being so polite about it, mijeeper80. That sort of civility is not as present, on the 'net, as it should be (present website excepted, of course).

Yes, I hope he's around, too. His build (and skills) are waaaaay more impressive, now that I've read the whole thread!

I'd like to learn more about his "self-taughtedness." IOW, I can weld (stick, MIG and gas), myself, and I'm just a BEGINNER (self-taught, plus a BOCES intro course on stick, to try to get better) but FABRICATION seems like an entirely-additional skillset. One I find intimidating, to be honest.

For example, in the only round-tube we've seen YAM use, he's "slash cut" it, so it will mate, precisely, on an angle with the frame. I know there's jigs out there, for certain angles, but I'm curious as to how he did it.

Also, how the H*** did he get the square-tubed front fender to match the graceful arc of the curve of the side of the hood?

Inquiring minds want to know!
(And if he tells us a fab-shop did it, my ego will feel better, but I'll still want to know how they did it! LOL).

I'm hoping it's a case of "once you get to doing it, you just do more of it...better." LOL

YAM--do you copy? YAM...come back? Over....

Thanks again mijeeper80 (and YAM),

Y-Yes

lol I wasn't even tryin bring it up like that. Was just truly curious lol. But now that you brought that up I would certainly have to agree with the civility of the Internet. Here's to hoping he just finished and is enjoying it :beers:
