wow great work!

Another spot you may want to look over is at the rear shock tower mounts. They like to collect dirt/mud/sand/water and will rust at the tom in between the the support brackets.

When I tore my jeep to just a frame I was fortunate enough to have only the passenger side shot tower rusted through a bit.

That looks really good, I just finished mine about two weeks ago. Makes me feel a little more comfortable driving down the road with a solid frame.I also drilled a hole in the bottom of the frame to let the water drain.[IMG]http://i883.photobucket.com/albums/ac35/remington21/********001.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i883.photobucket.com/albums/ac35/remington21/********003.jpg[/IMG]

You need to rename your files man. The filter thinks you have a bad word going on there.

Set in my drive way staring at my cracked frame. The upper rear shock mount rusted off and the frame cracked right at the attachment point. Cracked almost all the way around. Only bad spot on the whole frame. Shock mount on the driver's side is bad too. Does anyone make a fix for this location in the frame? I know Quadratec has new shock mounts and rear frame wraps.

I made my own shock mounts during the frame repair, only took a few minutes.... used 3/16 steel and old mount bolts

Nice work!! That will save me some cash. That's why I love this forum. You guys are always willing to show your techniques. I think I need to buy a plasma cutter. I already have a mig. Thanks Trucknut.

FWIW, buy yourself a nice 4.5" grinder that has an adjustable speed. Plasma is nice but wicked expensive! You can do a TON with a good grinder and the right wheels. PS, I like the $10.00 package from Harbor Freight for the wheels. You get like four cut off wheels, three grinding stones and three flap disks. Amazingly enough they ALL work very well! I am sure a "cut off test" between a $7.00 Dewalt disk and the HF one would show the HF do not wear as slow, but not to justify the price.

I bought my grinder at the Tractor supply for $40 with the 2 year (you break it, we replace it warranty) The adjustable speed is awesome!

I have a good grinder and yes you can do a lot with it. Thanks for the tip on the wheels. I want the plasma cutter to cut out the reinforcments for the frame. It will pay for itself in a short time. I know I could use a band saw but plasma is so nice.

I need to replace the rear frame rails from just behind the front spring eye back. I'm seriously looking at this plasma cutter so I can fabricate my own frame rail sections from 1/8" steel plate. Only $599 with free shipping until the end of August. http://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-plasma-cutter.html
