I', not sure how far I want to go with mine. I thought I had a small hole on the drivers side floor panel but after pulling the carpet it's one huge hole! I just laid a piece of steal on top of it for now.
clean it out and weld, get it before it spreads like cancer.
I havent forgotten about this, its been pouring rain so i have only been doing some more cutting and grinding. I'll take pictures tomorrow and get them posted after 7 tomorrow night most likely.
i pulled carpet in my Xj earlier this year to find much worse than that. mine was replated with 1/8" plate, that made a nice base for my cage i just installed as well.
pm me some pics, i dont wanna clutter up this thread, but im anxious to see.
I'll have pics tomorrow it was too late to paint, so i didnt snap any.
my update is this. the only floor left in my jeep is pretty much the tunnel and some of the wheel tubs. all the u channels are still there.
By the gas tank inlet, the rail is toasted, I'm platting both sides and the bottom with 3/16th. I'm tieing them into the back of the unibody which is still solid, and I'm also tieing it into the 3/16th plate that goes from spring shackle to spring shackle across the back. which is also one of my add ons.
I'll be doing more wire wheeling / plating that frame rail, and hopefully brushing in primer on everything thats exposed tomorrow.
If weather permits I'm working like 930am - 630 pm. minus some lunch at the highway joint.
I promise pictures. In other news, The tank i dropped out from under the tank was a jy tank i guess, yellow writing shows this.
Had a dark spot, i wire brushed, 3 holes in it. so there goes another 100$ on a new tank. FML I've emptied every pocket already.
My wife thinks im trying to cop one, but really I'm running her pockets for loose change.
So small update, did a bunch more cutting today, and a little wire wheelings, got a late start, I feel like crap.
picture of the rail where its broke. I'm platting from well infront of the break all the way to the back of the jeep with 3/16th on all 4 sides. I also plated from shackle mount to shackle mount all the way across the back of the jeep. It will be way stronger / better than stock, not to mention my bumper mount inside of all that.
all the rear metal cleaned out except for where i need to cut the wheel tubs.
i just threw a little primer on it for the hell of it, the can was almost empty so I emptied it
I admire all the work you're doing, there's just SO much more to do!
...but seriously, it reminds me of this guy's car.
4-wheeling is about going where others can't won't or don't think it's safe.

Those rear shock bolts, They come right out. If you are good at removing those rear shock bolts.
Which I apparently, Am not.
1/4 came out, after lubing them, pounding the sockets on, and attacking them squarely with a 3/8 rachet
Another panel is now cut and tached in, along with a panel for infront of it. Trying to make due with what I have in 14 guage steel, so i dont have to go cutting big chunks, and i dont want to use 18 gauge in the rear, because i haul parts ALOT.
i didnt prime anything because its below 40, and it gets colder overnight, ill be down there in the morning working again and dont want to be in wet primer.
