Welder ran me about $1,400 out the door for everything. Only thing I need now is another bottle & a tig torch...

Anyway I took the jeep out yesterday on my day off and it just snowed the other day so I got to play in a little mud.

Replaced my signal switch due to a faulty old one. Left blinker would trip the hazards to come on... Took me about 20minutes to have it done, fairly simple.

Now I have a new issue to address, the test light is lit up when the jeeps off. Slow drain...

Jeep looks Awesome!!!!!
What truck bed liner material did you use?
U can always get a 3M trim adhesive removal tool to remove the old fender trim
How much was the gasket kit?

Got a jerry can for free today so I made a little cradle for it, also mounted my license plate, mounted some reverse lights and got my spare tire stud bracket on. Now I just need to paint her and wire everything up.

I'm becoming increasingly jealous of others' fabrication skills - particularly with welding.

Nice work! Your welds look outstanding.
