Yep.......and after I posted that the phone rang and got my marching orders for Monday morning. Back to the grind til Nov, Dec. Now when the checks start showing up, I can start collecting parts for next winters build season. My goal is to have a roller by this time next year.

My next plan is to have the frame blasted when the snow melts.

Now I'm going to collect my parts

link brackets from Ballistic

Fab my own front/rear axle trusses

D60 disc brake brackets from Ballistic

New D44 Warn lock outs from Bronco Graveyard

Get a Rogue Fab bender with 1.75 and 1.5 dies and fab my own shock towers.

DOM tube and 2x4 frame tube local purchase

DOM inserts and Jonny Joints from GenRight

Custom Rims and tires from trail worthy fab

Coil over shocks Ballistic

So this is what I'm saving for and buying over spring,summer,fall to end up with a roller next winter. My budget is $100 a week so I know I'm really stretching it to have this done in year but if it takes a bit longer to get this far thats ok too. If I cook at my camper more while working on the road this summer I could probably kick another $50 to $75 a week into the budget. Instead of the bar, it will be reading back issues of JP and 4 wheeler at the camper....lol

All loaded up for another work season! Takes about 15 semi loads to move me around the state. Nothing like making big rocks into little ones.

Nice Tomb! You sell that YJ?

Ya, what a first week back, 6 days and 71.5 hrs. I'm sore and out of shape! The up side is that I can see lots of jeep parts in the future. One day off, and back for more on Monday.

Not much happening here this weekend. Brought home some old brake drums from work, and made some tool stands. Worked out well, let my son do the welding. Proud of him.
