To Cynthia's Rubicon

I ended up buying $150 worth of needed items

Then I was hungry and went here:


While I was waiting for my pizza I had 15 minutes to burn so why not start playing with my new toys:


went kind of like this:

Yummm.. pizza!!!


ended up with:


I only forgot a double male end to connect the hose to the thingy that clips to the valve stem. Jonah gets all the credit for already building this contraption. I just copied his. Now I will be able to fill my tires and not have to switch from air gauge to filler hose and back and forth until the air pressure is right Thanks again Jonah for the idea.
Sweet now you just need to build one of these. I can air down real fast now.

that is a pretty cool deflator. I use the screw on automatic deflators. Mine are set at 10 psi and that has been just fine for the trails I run out here. I like the flexibility yours gives you though. I am running beadlocks and my valve stem is recessed to avoid it from being ripped off by a rock so I am not sure your set up would work for my wheels. Makes me think though

My wife calls it my Frankenstein patch. She wanted to know if I was going to grind down the welds and bondo it, I said "hell no, it looks way more badass with battle scars". I might even paint some stitches over it.

Relocated the seatbelts after cutting out and repairing the rust.

Looked at all my parts;

The weather gods hate me.
I want to get all that in, but it's pretty crummy outside

Oh and a poser shot of my new meats put on!


Oh and my LED dash lights shipped. Should be here tomorrow so I can....toss them on the mounting pile lol.

I think I'll go source bolts for the body mounts today. Does anyone know what sizes are needed for all the body mounts? I can just pull a few of them, but if someone could save me the hassle that would be sweet.

Cheers

That is all of 4" sir.
It's not the size that matters most, it's how you....oh wait wrong topic.

I know you're a big fan of the 6" to keep it legal, but around here they don't care too much about any of that, and I like the sleeker look of the 4".

Why do ya ask?

cheers

Edit: I'm thinking about doing the 6" in the back though. Even though the 5-0 won't bother me about it (I don't have any flares on right now, and have had no problems) I want to have enough coverage to not be an a-hole throwing crap all over other cars on the road. I may go pick up a stock TJ flare from CL today and bolt it on. They are right around 4" and I'll know if it's enough then.

Haha, yeah the previous owner of my house built an awesome 30x50 pole barn shop.... And then splatter painted the concrete floor, on top of the epoxy sealer. It does hide dirt!

A local "they pull it" yard just called me. They just got in an 8.8 with 4.10's. I was all excited until they told me the price. $525.00 for it.
I'll pass and keep looking. I can get another one picked up, regeared, and set up and installed by a local shop for around $700....

Dammit. :

Cheers
