Cj5 build in the philippines

As far as you had it taken apart I think id feel obligated to paint it. Looking great though!


Will wait until march for the weather to be perfect for painting and i still have lots of body works underneath. We wanted to complete it first and we still have parts from abroad. We just sprayed it with a canned spray paint to avoid rust.

Structurally, 1/4 points would be strongest, but I don't know that it would look as good. I would go further out, like the second picture, to give your head more protection from anything on the side. It'll also give you a nice handle to hold on to

What do you mean by 1/4 points? Sorry have less knowledge on structural.

No worries!

So if you front roll bar is L long, you would get the most rigidity by placing the side bars at 0.25L from each side.

Line Rectangle Parallel


As an example, if the roll bar is 200cm long, you would place the side bars 50cm in from either end.

Although that may be stronger, I think I would push them a little more towards the outside of the Jeep to better protect your head in a roll over, and give you a nice handle to hold on to. More similar to your second example picture.

Great build so far, can't wait to see more of the finished product. Just giving me more and more incentive to get an old cj

Out for a test drive.











Didn't had the chance to take a photo of the trail because of the excitement. It's my first time to drive an off road vehicle on a medium trail. Over all good experience.

Problem is i cant tell if my jeep is ok. Newbie feeling hehehehe. But it passed the trail
