Scooby88 The 14 bolt is all cleaned up. Had the wife convinced I needed a plasma cutter, as I thought about it....most of the cutting is done.
I'm at the welding point and I've been borrowing the Miller from work which is sweet but....I changed my mind and I'm looking at the Miller 211 mig welder to buy.
Anyone have this welder? Oh, I get a miller, she gets a new couch I get to use both.

14 Bolt cleaned up

Sandblasted the 14, still have to cut off the stock leaf spring perches. Went to the u-pick n pull and got 2 leaf springs off an '97 F150. $77.50, I was lucky that the box was off.

Good day

Sorry for the past posts. Trying to help out a Jeeper.

Sold the Dana 30/35 axles tonight, that should cover the cost of the F150 springs for the build. Have a guy coming tomorrow night to buy the rims and tires that were on it.

Looking for some rollers for the 14 bolt, this thing is a Beast.

Scooby88 Got some of the stock leaf spring mounts cut off tonight. Found some F150 springs at a local u-pick for $33 each.

One problem, I have to get it out of the garage.
Chainsaw....in case it doesnt fit out the door.

Now what?

Got the 14 bolt, working on getting the Dana 60. Thinking on stretching the YJ. From what I've read, F150 leaf springs work pretty good. I'll go check the price at the local bone yard tomorrow.

14 bolt

Ok, after all the searching and texting I think I have the one. I pick it up Saturday morning. It's cleaned and ready to be converted to disc brakes. Cost is $75 (great price) but it's a 2 hr drive. Hell, I have more time than money!

Working the Craigslist tonight

I found a couple of killer deals on the 14 bolt tonight. One guy has 2 and wants $100 each, I think when I get there I'll offer him $150 for both. We shall see. I picked these up awhile back, they should work.
