Looking good. Keep up the good work!
Lose the ball mount and just loop a strap through the receiver and attach it with the hitch pin. You're going to **** 5 bricks when that thing snaps and sends that D-ring flying
I forsaw that as a possible problem, so it's only a temporary setup. I didn't have the $60 Tractor Supply wanted for the actual recovery devices.
What's the consensus on a Clevis & Pin setup like this rated 600 lb tongue weight a 6000 lb trailer weight?
That's what I want to get.
Oddly enough I think me and you think a lot like. I'm trying to do the same thing you have done. I got 02 GC and I have it for about a year now and I didn't think about doing anything to until I met up with this girl and her dad has this 86 CJ with renegade on the side. Plus when I found out the Liberty had a renegade version I thought to myself well someone should just make a freakin' Renegade WJ. So I'm also trying to do a little of what you are doing. I'm curious how did ya get the bumpers and cladding to look smooth? I haven't had any luck with that. Plus one thing I am curious how to do and if i knew how I would save the money up to get it, but like the jeep liberty light bar. I would like to make a custom light bar with five lights mounted in it to sit where the windshield meets the front of the roof of the jeep. To me that would be bad *** and I haven't ever seen anything like that.
Are you stalking me???
j/k, I think this is what you have in mind, and if I have the funds, I would like to get one in the future.
It's 4 lights instead of 5, but it looks really good. Some European company makes 'em, and sells 'em on eBay. Just look up "Jeep light bar" and it will be there somewhere. As for the bumpers, all I did was paint them with Krylon Fusion. The pictures aren't very good, so the texture doesn't really show up in them. I have some high quality photos I will be adding shortly.
did i see whitewalls painted Red in the first few pictures?? oooh geez!
When does the lift happen?
Yes, I painted the letters on the Firestone's red with some duplicolor crap.
The lift happens shortly after I locate control arms, trackbar, spring retainers, and a rear a-arm spacer. Hopefully that will happen within the next year.
Lookin' good. Can't wait to see a lift on it and some trail bumpers.
Lift should be before long. Trail bumpers? I wish. I'd love a front bumper like Shinobi's.
