Nice work, I like the D44a truss. When I get my D44a I want to do a truss but have zero welding skills LOL.

Thanks a lot! This was my first big fabrication project. It was all done with a 110v Lincoln flux core mig that i picked up for 100$. i just practiced on scrap metal until i got confident with my welds. nobody really showed me, I picked up a lot by watching our welder at work and talking to him about some stuff.

More pictures! I got the spal fan installed along with a new radiator. Mine was leaking around the fitings for the trans. The spal really moves some air. Im not sure how it compares to the stock one but it is waterproof. Im in the process of gathering the materials to cut out my rusted rockers and weld in some 2x6.

Looking for any other parts for your JEEP? lol

It was a balmy 33 degrees at the yard. Bolts didnt really want to cooperate. But a BFW helped. Also had to use an engine hoist to lift the Jeep up. Someone took the axle and left the jeep sitting on the skid.

Gas tank Skid (not brush guard). Just a hint of surface rust around 2 corners of the sq on the bottom. Otherwise zero rust.






Hitch with surface rust and paint peeling. But no serious rust.




Laredo hitch bezel, harness and 7 way plug.



Oh yeah... They had this at the yard.





And I got this too.



Just have to figure how to get it all to ya.

a little up date here on the WJ
i had a wheel bearing fall apart on me. i left for work and everything was fine with it, no noise or anything. on the way home it pretty much fell apart. good thing i had one laying around to replace it with


got this funny picture of the WJ with a shopping cart....Mall Crawler


went on a little wheeling trip and tried a little too hard to make it up a hill the jeep got hopping real bad then this happened


i got my Cree LED reverse bulbs and installed them. they seem okay but not much brighter and the blue light is kinda hard to see through my tint. i guess ill keep rolling my window down to back up
