Was that bender easy to use?
Yup, it was the first time i really used it and it was very easy to get the hang of. You just have to make sure the top rollers are in the right spots or youll get nasty indentations in the pipe instead of a smooth bend.

I live in Burton, right near the mounds. My rig is going to be down for a while though. Like what you have done with this thing, really turned it around so far.

I was thinking about doing that, it doesn't seem like it would be incredibly complicated. You'll deffinitly have to post them up if you do them.

got to flex the suspension out today at the original mall crawler spot, its actually this pretty cool abandoned strip mall so its a perfect place not to get into trouble. She flexed out really nice though the most ice flexed yet, but I deffinitly need some bump stops before I blow out y shocks!

heres the pics, messed with photoshop a little.

ps the rocky mountains gripped really nice.

Went up to rose city over the weekend and did some wheeling. I was by my self so I have no action shots, but here are a few I took.







this was way steeper then it looks, looks flat in the pic.



An oil pipe that runs over the trail, almost didnt make it under.

Well, not much progress lately, but after christmas and taxes there will be some major action.

plan:

-custom steering with hemi links
-sye with xj shaft
-1" body lift
-rockers
-upgraded alternator
-lots of LED off road lights
and more

All I've got done lately was cleaned the jeep up inside. Had a duffle bad laying around so I put it to use.

before


after


Now I dont have to listen to tools bounce around anymore

OOOOOHHHHHH K! Ive got some stuff to post. Went up north to the garage and got a fair amount of work done.

But first I voted! the Lady and I...



Parked next to a stocker...



And an Idea for an offroad trailer...
I would use one of those cheap Harbor Fright trailers as a base and build up from there.

The first thing I did was fix my windsheild. The bolt holes that held down the windshield channel where stripped and I ended up going crazy and putting about 20 self tapping screws in it then it started leaking when it rained.

All the stuff for the weekend work.



For the windshield repair, threaded rivetes and JB weld





First thing I did was remove all the old screws, 19 to be exact.





Then put JB on the holes I wasnt going to use and on the center hole because it was cracked pretty bad.





I then drilled 9 holes out, put the rivets in and pressed them. It all worked out pretty good and I wont have to worry about my windshield rotting from the inside out.

Next thing I did was finish the body work as far as welding in new steal, still have to do a lot of bondoing.

The drivers side corner went pretty smooth, just cut out the old stuff, cut out new stuff, bent it and welded it in.

before cutting



after cutting



crappy tracing



bending, all by hand





welded



I used the fender to trace out what extra needed to be cut off









and painted



Definitely needs some bondo and sanding but thats how its going to be for awhile.
