I picked up some 2" x 5" x1/8" box tubing to make a winter bumper project.
1/2" - 20 threaded rod, and matching 1/2" heims.

No problem!



In other news, Im going tomorrow to look at another project to take on through the winter.


New edge Mustangs were my first love, and how I found my love of Jeeps (needed a winter DD), been looking for a fixer upper for a little while now, this may be it. We shall see. Jeep stays regardless, no worries there.

That is why I got my ZJ last winter! Mustangs do not do well in snow. Good luck with your new project!

I traded my rusty '94 GT for my '00 XJ!

My '98 GT goes in the garage this winter for installation of an SVT handling package and exhaust, Bassanii cat back. Already has the BBK headers, Pypes Hi-Flo cats and x-pipe. If you go old school, I have a nice '68 390 GTA motor and a '66 428, both for sale!

Jeeps/Mustangs seem to be a great combo. They just compliment each other well. Im looking forward to picking up another. Ive owned a few, from 86 up to 01. For sake of pics, heres my full bolton 01 GT I sold just before my daughter was born 2 yrs ago.


BACK ON TOPIC though I am putting rocker replacement at the top of my to do list. How soon that is sorta depends on me acquiring the aforementioned project, but either way its getting done ASAP.

Very Clean! After my sons second speeding ticket, (in my '84 V6 XJ!) I had to take the insurance off my '67 and park it. By the time he was out of college I had stripped close to 20 fox body 'Stangs, and many more early (60's - 70's) Fords of various models. Even a couple DeTomaso Pantera's! I had left my factory work due to injury, sold parts via eBay, swap meets .. etc. It was a lot of fun, met people from many different countries. I still have friends from Sweden and New Zealand that visit during the Carlisle, PA All Ford Nationals. Good times!

That's a damn sexy GT. I'm a Mustang guy, too. Though I don't own one. Mainly because my GF's '11 GT would be quicker than one I owned lol.

Thanks man! Only sold it to buy something roomier for the kiddo. Missed that car. And lmao new Mustangs are insane now, I got behind the wheel of one with that new 5.0 Coyote motor and nearly **** myself. I cant afford that new school **** though, and I have a personal preference to 99-04 cars. I mainly enjoy the cars for cruisers more than anything. I just feel at home in one.

I looked at the white car today, going down there tomorrow with a trailer and cash. Looked like it was someones baby at one time, lots of quality stuff on it, but Ive got my work cut out for me on bodywork in a spot or two. This shouldnt affect the Jeep's progress too much though, as the Mustang's rebuild will be spread out over the next few months. Btw, anyone wanna buy SLP Loudmouth catback setup? My ears are ringing still.

Those new coyote motors are sick! I ran against one and it was quick.

Even as a diehard Mustang guy Ill admit that LSx is the way to go if going fast is the subject. Buuuut thats not so much what Im after, Ive had a Camaro and could not stand driving the damn thing, and no matter what I did with the exhaust it cackled like hell and sounded nasty. Everytime I drove it I felt like I was in a coffin with a windshield. Awkward ergonomics on the 93-02 F bodies. Id love to have a 6.0 GTO like Alex's though, just a little out of my price range.
