Look up how to fix the HF on Youtube. You can build a cap to hold the tube in the die so it doesn't kink when it's forced out.

I'd look at the Rogue fab benders. They're the cheapest of the good ones at around $300 with one die, but you do have to weld the assembly together.

So I'm thinking about chopping the xj this weekend. I Wana cut from right behind the back seats and back and cut the rear window area off a Comanche and make my jeep like a shortened Comanche. It would look different and I Wana put a Comanche tailgate on the back. It just sucks cuz it's cold now and I would need to finish quick and I don't Wana rush and make it look stupid. You guys like the idea? Also in the back area I would plate the sides and probably put a toolbox that fits good in there. Or a spare tire if it will fit.

if nothings breaking your not wheeling it hard enough

Yea I actually decided to wait until I have time to do it right. I need rear leaf springs and a new electric fan. And I need to cut and fold my rear quarters. And trim up the rear tj flares. And bumpstop the rear. All that's on the list before the chop. Trying to get my gf to get me a synthetic winch line for christmas. Parents getting me tires for christmas. Should have some updates soon.

Don't. You'll regret it. I promise. It wouldn't be different cause piles of people do it. You will HAVE to cage it, no questions asked. And you'll never be happy with it because you'll lose comfort and it will be a ***** to get air right again.

Get air right as in sealing the back? I figured I'd have to structure it better like with a cage or something. And as for the comfort it would be less comfort for passengers but not me haha. Idk I am re thinking it though because it's a lot of work and it's really only for looks

Got some s 10 leafs today for bastard packs. Gonna use the full s 10 leaf with my xj main leafs. Using the overload leaf on the s 10 pack too. Hopefully it will sit level. And hopefully they are stiff enough to stop my axle wrap. Don't really wana build build a ladder bar. I blew another ujoint last night tho trying to **** with a tj and start a jeep race lol. It broke but was still connected so I managed to limp to my hockey game, Napa for a ujoint, and my girl friends to do the ujoint. I was surprised I made it.

Got the rear springs done. Sits nice and level now. Still have a little axle wrap so I'm gonna get some metal and build a ladder bar after I get some cash. I'm getting a 98 4 door 4.0 auto tomorrow or Saturday for 400 bucks. Gonna sell as much parts as I can then wheel the piss out of it. Not putting any money into it just gonna wheel it and scrap it when it wont wheel no more. Lol. Anyone needs and parts from a 97+ let me know. Body isn't too good. It was rolled lol. Other than that interior and all is good. I'm keeping the block of the 4.0 and I'll keep the transmission but other than that I'll sell anything else.
