damn, that is sweet. your jeep came out as nice as anything a person could want and it looks like you get to actually use it for what its built to do


I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.

Hey man, what type of welder did u use for the body work...my friend it doing my frame work since he is a fabricator but I'm looking to get one for just small sheet metal and body work as I only have a big ac/dc stick right now. Just wondering what others r using on their rigs.

I used my 115V 130A mig welder with solid core wire and argon/co2 gas. I just kept it at a low setting. Running thinner wire can help too.

It could be done I guess but you would have an empty gap where the factory side marker goes. Also TJ flares are taller and longer. If you raised up the stock flare to meet the top of the fender it would leave a gap on the bottom not to mention you would not be gaining more tire clearance towards the rear.
