Jeffk1975 Got up this morning and washed the wife's car and the Jeep. Then one of my buddies came by and said hey, I heard about this spot to play around in close by...so we went.





Then after a trip to the carwash and a hand wash at the house...



My dog is checking out the smells. Some of it was that foul smelling gray stuff.

I used the Raptor liner kit when I did my interior. Was a bit nervous at first but this stuff is amazing! Good choice!

That's what I'm leaning towards but wondered about Alloy USA as well. It may just come down to pricing...

Does the raptor liner have a texture?

DBoat Drove it in Moab last two days. Steel Bender on Fri and Hells Revenge yesterday. Tried to take a difficult double step and bent an lca and the track bar. Waiting on the shop to fix it enough to tow it home. But the Silver Surfer made it all the way through the trail without any help.

Mamefreak Had to put the hard top on :-(

But at least my hard doors will be done getting my custom paint job and tinted this week :-)

Sorry it took so long, just got it back from the shop and started working on treating the frame right away. I did the mid frame section a year ago, I have no question on the integrity of the repair shop long as it's adequately attached by a competent welder. (Which I am not yet)
I'm scrambling to get her back together by Wednesday, heading to KY on Thursday for Jeep Jamboree, so I'll put this repair to the test.

I still have the frame side rear track bar bolt, which is rusted into the bushing sleeve. I ended up tearing the sleeve loose from the bushing. Only way to remove it now is to cut it out. The nut is off. The bolt will be pretty easy to get out with the tire off and spring out of the way.

Last bit is two snapped off upper, rear shock bolts. Everything else came off, though not without a serious fight.

This jeep, man...
