Got my rear springs half off. Frame side the nuts came off and I sheared one of my socket adapters.
Time to bring in heat, or grind it off. :thumbs:

Started a homebrew set of sliders, pictures tomorrow. Also found out we are gonna have a few sets of 2 inch stainless jeep letters left over from our Chyrsler job. Guess I will have to find a use for them?

love my jeep

Don't wait on the storm to pass, learn to wheel in the rain.

Mounted my bike. Had to use a home made cable for the tailgate till some cj ones show up but it will work for tomorrow. Since my bike is a long wheel base recumbent, I had to put it in a little sideways because its longer then a normal bike and the pedals being in front make it even harder to fit like I was hoping it would

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

Yep,
That is it. Saved me over $200 bucks, so I bought a membership here. Totally worth the value on that linked thread above.

I guess my YJ Is my midlife crisis therapy.....

Yeah, my phantom will fit in mine but no way my RANS Velocity2 with fairing will fit!

Gas cap is on the yj filler still. Need to get longer hoses to use the yj one.

/\. How do you like having a fairing? Do you get hot from it splitting the wind around you? I always wondered about those things because its so windy here

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

Just got my yj a couple weeks ago and the Po took the rough country springs off the back and I think went back to stock so the 33"s were really close to the flares. Front has tons of room. So it looked like I was trying to be gangsta with the front higher. Did an add a leaf to the rear and Leveled her out.

Just nuttered it too plus some awesome looking seat covers and Smittybilt center console. So many things I want to do. The front stubby bumper turned out awesome too. Next is the rear bumper and swing out.




89yj- just getting started.
07.5 ram 2500 6.7 cummins. 13.6@98.6 1/4 on 35" nittos. Sold and sad about it
07 triumph speed triple 1050cc. Roulette Green monster
12 Sonata hybrid hippie car, MPG all day.
06 sierra 2500hd 6.6. On the way to running 11's.

If you can ride a regular bike, you can ride one of these. You just have to start off expecting to fall a few times because you are learning to sit back instead of lean forward. Once you are used to it, you can ride forever on one. I did 100 mile ride on mine last month and we have another 100 coming up. (100 in one go, minus bathroom and food breaks)

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

Replaced U-joint and short part of front drive shaft (old one has broken when I trying to remove old U-joint). Vibration after 40mph are going away.
Unbolted my vacuum motor assembly on front axle, shift fork was blocked by piece of wood on 4wd position by previous owner (such a dumb guy!). So I removed it - all working fine. Front drive shaft not spinning on 2WD now.

Please let's not get me started on odd bikes, I already have enough hobbies. Besides I still ride my 25 year old 20inch dyno bmx.

What squishy said, that bumper looks really good, and STRONG. Can you give dimensions & materials used? I'd like to make one like it but just a little longer, say, to the tire centerline.
