YjMopower I got the whole wiring thing figured out, my wires were correct i just had a bad battery .just some more pics of me finishing up.

former USMC Removing the body is a simple task with the right tools. I cut a couple pieces of 1/8" metal and welded the rear shackle mounts, blasted, primed and painted the remainder.

YjMopower Thx i just installed the front and rear u joints ,that thing was messy. I connected the wiring to my memory but when i cranked the ignition didnt get anything not even the fan moving , i think i wired up some wroung things. anyone have some pics of their engine compartment? looking for mostly wiring for the 6 cylinder 4.0 .pics of the starter would be uselful. Iam trying to understand the wiring diagrams

YjMopower Whats up guys long time no talk ive been busy but heres some news you where defiantly right about the whole welding thing i learned pretty easy but it was going to be to much work but i went a different way and bought a new tub in Long island it was rhino lined already for $175.I bought my frame over there to make sure everything mounted properly.So I started taking the other jeep apart and transferring all the parts and wires to the new tub.Here are some pics of the progress and i manage to break the ignition switch so i bought a new one, anyone knows what can i benefit from that?Although the tubs weren't identical iam going to have to drill in some new holes for things.
03-25-2009 12:11 PM
YjMopower dam okay ,so exactly what size thickness of steel should i use?and what kind of grinder size should i get to clean of the paint and rust?
03-25-2009 11:45 AM
scrambler1 Thats great, but 8 hours even for a pro is no where near enough time for all the work you need done. If you can get all the steel cut and cleaned ready to go, it will save tons of time.
03-24-2009 03:05 PM
YjMopower There was someone who tried to cover up the spots by adding some kind of metal if you guys can see the yellow.Anyways all that is going to be taking care of

YjMopower Here some pics of the damage

YjMopower Hey whats up guys , i found a guy who's willing to weld for me for 400 for 8 hours.He teaches at a trade school over here in nyc called apex.This Saturday we should be welding up the tub.Just one question what is the thickness on the fenders and the floorboards.Can i just get one size for both?And to find out the gear ratio this will require me opening the axle up?
03-19-2009 05:04 PM
YjMopower Iam pretty sure one set of the axles gear ratio is 3.08 not entirely sure though. Not sure on the other set, will find out tomorrow.
03-19-2009 04:31 PM
RednekYJ Since you have 2 sets of axles I suggest figuring what gear ratio is in each. To do this you can count the teeth on the ring gear and then the teeth on the pinion and divide the ring gear amount/pinion gear. Say there are 43 teeth on the ring, and only 14 on the pinion 43/14=3.07(your gear ratio) If one set has 4.10's and the other is 3.55 or something you would use the higher of the two unless you plan on regearing soon.

Hell since the tub is off you should just go SOA(spring over axle) right now and save yourself the trouble later.
Thanks , Will do . With the soa should i switch my axels first , i seen you have to weld the perches on to them.
03-19-2009 07:58 AM
YjMopower They didnt bow extermly but they had a slight arch to them
03-19-2009 12:30 AM
ty95yj ^^^ mine are flat
03-19-2009 12:05 AM
87YJWrangler when they were on the jeep were they flattend out or were they bowed pretty good still?

YjMopower Never took them off, they on the old frame they stilled bow
03-18-2009 10:47 AM
87YJWrangler were they flat when you took them off or are they still kinda bow shaped?
03-17-2009 08:12 PM
YjMopower thx lancem i actually was going to take 2 courses ,and do trail and error before i jump into the project. Just wanted to know about how much was this going to cost.
03-17-2009 06:18 PM
Lancem Before you go jumping into a buying spree using internet advice, here's some more for free, take a welding course, at adult ed at a local high school or Voc school in the area. It will be the best money you will spend on welding and then YOU will know what will best serve your purpose and who knows you may be able to use their equipment to do your project!
03-17-2009 11:55 AM
YjMopower So welding roll cages is out of the question for that setup?Can someone find me a good setup iam willing to spend a lil more or less than 1000 I wont be able to get a power source other than a genreator.

Yes that would be Ideal I use a 3500 watt honda when I weld remote,it works really,really well. But a properly sized cord will work well doing sheet metal. But thicker steal you will need a better source of power.
03-17-2009 07:42 AM
YjMopower From the looks of it they where still okay, how can one know how they look?
03-17-2009 12:50 AM
87YJWrangler What shape were your old leaf springs in?

03-16-2009 07:13 PM
Lancem If you have to go wall socket/extention cord then you will have to go 110V welder, I have a Hobart 140 and have yet to meet it's limits. If you have to use an extention cord then size it properly, if you have to go very far you should look at 12 gauge wire minum, maybe 10 gauge if you are going like 50 feet or more and are doing heavy welding.
