Believe me you'll get over that quick. Just keep them away from the pretty hood. There was a lot of love that went into Mike making that design for you.

Thanks brotha.

Yeah, I think all of us are ready for this one to be done. We have been thru 3 frame off jeep builds over the last couple months. I don't think any of us are even remotely wanting to ever take another jeep body off a frame again. I know Bob is glad that this is in the final stages.

Hey bubba, all the front bolts are good now and the trac bar has been set for good this week.

I don't remember who it was, but whoever was asking about the old frame. It had been heavily modified for a completely different build when Bob got a hold of it. The front of the frame had been stretched, the rear had been back halfed, the body had been removed and the RE skid was sucked up to be flat. The lowers had been recessed up in the frame and the uppers were beginning to crack in the mounts. It had pretty much outlived its usefulness. Had some very cool ideas, but mainly ones that worked with big 60's, full hydro and 42's. Bob got it with Rubi 44's (with no brackets on them at all) and 38's. This thing will be fast as hell though. Can't wait to see it on the trail this weekend.

Oh yeah that's right. The boomerang is going away and I'll be there with ya.

Joe Daro did that bumper and tubework at his shop. they tied into his PSC sliders. Attached is a better picture of it.

He's just completed his new jeep build... a sunburst orange with all the genright armor and trimmings rolling on black WE beadlocks and comp treps. Its purdy. It was in a photo shoot up at Moab last week for JP magazine.

ygohome Yay Bob!

If I remember correctly, the other frame that came with the red jeep was modified alot by the previous owner and wouldn't work for what Bob had planned for it.

Yay Bob!

booger what was wrong with the one you bought that made it necessary to replace the frame?
