Tore apart my third and final axle for the guts to put in my widetrac axles. Going to go with the narrow hubs though as all the bearings are brand new and the warn hubs are better than the jeep hubs that are on the widetrac axles. in this pic you can see all three axles.

I will be saving about 200 bucks in bearings because I only need to buy 4 oil seals and 1 bearing that didnt make through the tear down.

Tomorrow I'm getting my 2 inch square tube for my spare tire carrier that I will build this weekend. And my dad said we will get everything sandblasted next week so I can start putting together my axles to get ready for them to be put on after the galvanizing.

Tomorrow though I will not work though as I am going to go get clothes for school good thing because I need new jeans and tennis shoes.

Got nothing done on the jeep this weekend. That square tube was rusted to nothin so I may find a use elsewhere around the house or just scrap it.

But I'm other news I built shelves and stuff in my vault. It looks sharp.

You're a real handy guy! That vault looks sweet!. My dad built something similar to that, but no shelves, just big piles of gun cases and ammo cases

Cheers!

That was just like a concrete room that we cut the hole out of the concrete for the door. Took about 12 hours for the shelves and stuff and a week to cut the hole on the wall. With a gas powered saw in the basement.

Started my swing out tire carrier tonight. Woulda finished welding but my mom cut me off saying it was too loud. Guess that's the down side to gas powered welders haha.

Hey, the valve covers look great! It's cool to see my idea go to use in different colors. I like it in blue! Good job and good build!

Thanks. I like the blue trying to stay original with the blue 304 color.

For real. I'll be painting mine in the next few days (life permitting). I think I'm gonna do the same thing.

Thanks for the great idea Alex!!
