Nice. I agree to get a bottle as soon as you can. Gas is sooo much cleaner and easier to use. Especially for learning. Check out Airgas on the first go around they give you the gas for free all you pay for is the bottle. I believe they were the cheapest to exchange cylinders too.

Much better looking welds and easier to use

and that 180 is plenty strong for 90% of what we do to our jeeps

Our 140 has never let us down. We leave it on the hottest setting and can weld 1/4in no problem
Yeah I will soon hopefully. I just want to be able to put down a strong weld that doesnt look too much like ****. Im sure with enough practice i'll be able to lay down some solid welds. The goal is to drag my rig through the hammers eventually. So knowing how to weld is a must

I was planning on checking them out. Which one do you use? I also have a oxy/acet setup that needs to be filled

The one here in Rancho, forget the street they are on.They have their own mix that's easier to use. I believe it's 86/14 Argon/CO2.

I need an oxy/actetlyene setup one of these days. I have a plasma cutter but I suck *** at making nice cuts with it.

The barnett one or a half cage like my dads should work nicely. I'll still be running a little bumpstop extension for the new shocks. Its looking to be about 1"

I've been running Defy lately too. Been meaning to send an oil sample in to compare the numbers to the Brad Penn I used to use.

After replacing the lifters 75 miles before my warranty was up I got a little more picky about my oil choices.

Yeah I figured the sooner I switched the better. I saw a used oil analysis from a jeep 4.0 on bobistheoilguy and they seem to like it

Funny thing is that it's cheaper then all the other oils that are supposedly better like Castrol synthetic.

Yeah and I remember it wasn't at vatozone last time I bought oil so I just got Valvoline like I always have. Now they have it in 10w30 and 5w40 for the same price as Valvoline
