Yes I was in fact joking..but in my defense if you look at your last pic you posted...there is a wheelbarrow with a welding hood and what looks like a small 110 wire welder....and since my 220 outlet is across the property from where my tool shed is I have used my wheelbarrow to transport my medium sized miller to where I need it...no offense meant....

I think you merely confused him. You could be a good help to Trent if he runs into any issues, your dj is quite the Jeep!

Oh. In the wheel barrow is a 5 gal bucket. I don't use my wire welder it's too small I like my stick better

Well got brake stuff ordered. Bought brake lines pads fittings and misc other things. Got the tranny back into place hooked up the brand new starter dropped a little gas into the carb and fired her up!! Worked on the steering stuff and started to get that squared away. Installed the clutch and brake pedals got the clutch working. Overall a productive day.
Alway went to work but got off early so I could go to a job interview at orielly!

Well got all the brake stuff and the rotors didn't fit. I gotta find some with a center diameter of 4.25" which apparently they don't make. Where to go for rotors?

Well I'm a *******. The rotors go on the inside of the hub not the outside like any new vehicle.

I feel your pain brother...I just put my dash back in along with wiring and column walked inside and there was the defrost ducting sitting in the dish drainer.....to quote "king of the hill" "D***it Bobby!!"....im not sure if either I missed it or not but have you given any thought as to what color you are going to paint your jeep?
