Nice tow rig AND Jeep! I just had a quick question. Where did you get your tool box from that you have in the rear of your Jeep. I see Snap-on but do you have a link to it? thanks!

thanks everybody. the tool box came from a friends dad that had it sitting in his barn. i think he picked it up from some kind of military surplus. the model number is KRP825 if it helps

ive been working alot so the jeep has been sitting here waiting to be worked on. a little update on it. i cut and rolled the rears and also re painted the fronts. i used rustoleum bed liner in a can. its pretty good for stuff like this.


i picked up a NP231J from a TJ from a friend of mine. ill need it for a speed signal when i do my axle swap. he let it go for 75$ and even delivered it. he told me its got low miles on it. they replaced it and then the frame broke on his TJ 3000 miles later.


i cut a big hole in the floor to tuck the tank and also maybe move it back a couple inches to make some room.

also i hauled the 9 inch out of the shed and started on the prep. i was going to do a D60 rear but i have the 9" and got it for free so we will see how it holds up. ive got a lead on a HP44 from an F250 that im going to use if i can pick it up for the right price.

Yeah I think they probably would, a 2" or greater set of flares would cover mine. I don't remember what backspacing I went with, I think it was 5".

yeah im kind of worried about them hanging over. i wanna run some recentered Hummer wheels from trailworthy fab but to get a pressed center you have to get 3.5" backspacing. i guess i could find some used 35s to throw on for inspection lol
