Did our annual club campout/raffle and runs. Only broke a bar pin for rear shock. Good weekend.
Oh and got one JK high centered. Lol.

Made some door hanger brackets (total cost $2.50 for washers and lags)
I got some 1" angle iron (for free) and welded them into a box, cut everything up, my brother-in-law had some old wrist pins laying around so we welded them together, cut them in in half and welded a washer to the top for the hinge pins.
Welded everything together
and came up with this

Impact gun works wonders for those bolts. Just tap the trigger forward and back and they pop loose.
$50 at harbor freight. Best cheap tool I ever bought.

My build is on hold until I get my new Alloy USA axles. I am starting to get the heebie-jeebies doing nothing while the TJ is ripped apart. I think tomorrow I will finally snap off those damned upper, rear shock bolts. I have been working on them for over a year now and they will NOT come loose. So I have to man up and get them out. It will not be pretty. Say a little prayer for my TJ. As for me, I will probably have thrown two wrenches and a cat across the yard by noon, tomorrow. But I have no idea how bad this is going to get.
How about this?
Dremel the bar pins and simply get the damned shocks OUT. Then use my acetylene torch for one last, desperate attempt to crack that rust.
I managed to get two of them to creak and snap over about 5║ or 10║ once last Summer, so it is possible...
However, I just might precede all this nonsense by using a breaker bar to try and gently yet firmly tighten those two back a tiny bit to get them moving. Then back and forth, over and over until they start to break free. Maybe then the heat?
I think I can get those two.
But the others?
Screw them. They die tomorrow. ;-)

Fabbed up some 1.75" seat risers
Took some scrap stock that would have otherwise been tossed and put it to good use. Made two sets, one for myself, and another for a buddy. Free mods are the best mods. Also took care of some floor pan rust on said buddy's rig.

|IIONLY||Adjusted my brake shoe star wheels, adjusted the hand brake cable, cleaned the rotors and drums (hoping it would help stop my squeal, it didn't), rotated my tires and sprayed underneath with some asphalt undercoating. Was going to change my spark plugs but my plug socket and gap tool have disappeared. So guess that may happen next week. Also gave "the tank" a nice wash. It was a good day.|
