Plus if it sucks return it. They are great about taking tgings back.

Good to hear. I also see some tube fenders in my future. I have some left over 1 3/4" HREW from my sliders that I would like to use up on the doors. Will the 12 ton handle that or should I go for the 16T? This is a tool that would rarely be used but I'd rather not fight it when I do.

I have one it bends pipe just fine, and pipe for tube fenders is kosher. I have heard of modifying the dies to
keep from kinking. I have yet to use it for anything on my jeep since the bottle jack leaked all of its fluid out.

If you've got it, you'll probably be doing projects for those within an hour of you.

I wouldn't have it any other way. Consider it done. Tomorrow. Before the wife gets up and stops me...

Life is rough


But really I want to build it as much as I can while I'm here in college because I know that once I graduate, and hit the real world... The $ likely won't be there to spare. So I do what I can

Haha and thanks

Took a ride in the xj to meet a guy on craigslist to buy a set of hellas and some grab handles. I was checking out his jk and he started ragging on yjs. I pulled out my phone and showed him a pic of where I was mounting the hellas on my yj...

Then I asked if the same motor he had came in a dodge caravan....

Burn

Installed electric fan

I installed an electric fan. Found a great fan to use from a local junk yard. The owner let me look through his collection of fans and I found that a Lincoln Mark VIII fan is perfect. It is a huge fan that has dual speeds. I modified the fan shroud and my radiator brackets so the fan motor would clear my pulleys. Awesome fan for offroad. I wired a switch on the dash to cut the ground to the fan for when I need to go into deep water so as not to damage the fan.
