Well going to start my build thread. But first like everyone else a little back ground on myself. I'm Cody form Aj, Arizona. I'm 19 years old. I self taught myself to mig weld an tube bend. I like building my jeep myself (built not bought).
I got myself a 93 yj with a 4.0. That I'm slowly starting to build so here it goes.

Jeep looks like it's in great shape, and the bumper looks sweet! Any future plans for the jeep? What size/brand lift and tires are you running? Keep up the good work!

Well the dream would be run 35-37s on a soa with xj springs. Comp cut it at that point. Now that all depends on my schooling, I'm getting pretty serious about going to The Fab School in Riverside, CA. And defiantly want my jeep to come so those mods would be way in the future. Now what you can expect in the ranging in the next few months is stinger, d-rings mounts, rock sliders, connecting the stinger to the chopped fenders for tube fenders, also rear bumper with a stinger tire carrier and make it able to hold shackles so when I do go xj springs. I'm sure I would being doing some other stuff to it as well but not popping in my head currently.

Sounds like a good plan, recently purchased some D-Ring mounts that were pretty cheap ($50) and are strong as hell. Installed then last night and I can post a picture later on today. The mounts are meant to attach to a specific bumper but I just drilled holes and attached them. Would definitely recommend them.

One of the last posts show them before I installed them-> http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/s...0lll0-2991425/
