I certainly will!! I have dozens of ideas of things to build for the ZJ!
I'm almost done building the roof rack light bar I designed with a Hi-Lift jack mount that swings out and down for standing height access to the jack.
I have been practicing quite a bit. I rebuilt my wife's ZJ's rockers with 1/8"x3"x4" steel tubing. I connected them to the main unibody with 4"x6" tubes I built from 1/8" flat stock.
Some of my welds look professional, MOST of my welds look okay, and then I had a few that looked like a 5yr old welded them...
I ground them down and started over again.
That's the beauty of steel work, if you botch the weld, grind/cut it out and try again
