I'm currently in the process of building tube doors for the Jeep Jamboree at Uwharrie in NC.

so tube doors are in the works. I went to a buddies today and started bending some tubes but i think that i am only going to do one 90 degree bend, and use a band saw and angles to make the rest. I received my front Ujoint style driveshaft from ebay for ~85$. Went to my local 4x4 specialist and he had only 1 yoke i could use. Called up
CarolinaDrivelines.com and they got me a front Ujoint style 1310 yoke with bolts for about 70$ total. I decided i got tired of having to deal with scraping for used parts so i just
bit the bullet and bought it.

i am attending the Jeep Jamboree at Uwharrie but not riding in it. I will be going with Carolina Offroad Extremist on April 7th
so i am just trying to get everything ready.
List of things i need to get done
1. Tube doors
2. Finish my U joint Conversion
3. Oil change
4. buy Doesch Tech 8000 shocks for the front
5. buy some new shock tabs for the rear for about ~30$ and rotating them up so i can keep my new rusty's shocks.

Looks good! I've always liked maroon with black wheels, looks awesome. I'm interested to see how your tube doors came out, got any pics?

I'm not sure what will be next on my list of upgrades. I'm heading off to a different college soon and I'm lacking funds. I'm not really interested in making rear tube doors. I may do a tank tuck and fender trim so that I might be able to fit some ~35"s
