Well I hope you're patient cuz it'll be a while haha. I've got the tube in storage already, but I want to get my 8.8 finished first. I was gonna finish the welding on it this weekend but I've gotta work so it'll be at least 2 more weeks til it's in.

Took A LOT of massaging with a BFH inside the wheel wells to not rub on turns. I'd probably have been ok, but it's extremely close at full turn on parts of the wheel well. Definitely going to have to go up an inch before it goes offroad again. They measure 32" but they're a solid 4" larger with the tread than my Uniroyal 32s were.

I've been meaning to do it for a while anyway, but I'm gonna take it into work Saturday and cut the rear quarters flush with the rear door opening and increase the size of the wheel well in the back.

Like those tires - alot!

When you cut your rear quarters - are going to wrap that bumper around underneath the cut? It'd be b@d@ss if you did.

Thanks. Looking at getting a welder to keep at my uncles house near my apartment so things might start moving a lot quicker than they have been.

no luck finding a tail gate at a local JY? My buddy called around and found me one in 15 min because he wanted the one I had... I didn't think he would find one.. but they had one. There was another one close to where I live but it would cost a lot to ship it to you :/

I haven't really bothered looking. I haven't really done anything to the Jeep other than drive it some since I picked up my motorcycle.

Whacha been up to?

I'm not saying we should kill stupid people... Just get rid of all the warning labels...
If you find my comments to "infer" something, they don't. Go to hell.

I've got a guy lined up to bend some tube for me here soon for a rear rollbar so it's getting chopped fairly soon. Still need to finish my 8.8. I've also got some 2x6 laying around to replace the rockers at some point here soon. Bikes just funner to work on, less of a hassle, and doesn't cost nearly as much right now lol

It'll look good chopped. Are you gonna keep the rear open like a bronco or move the hatch foreward?

Open, I hate the closed off chop. It's pointless to me. You lose space and what good ~2' of bed and less room in the cab?

I'm doing the rollbar very similar to a TJ bar so I can use their soundbars and some of the soft tops. Got a local guy we give a lot of business to at work doing a soft top for me and I'm going to get an MJ camper shell and cut it down to length for a hard top for the winter.
