Also can't wait to see the fenders and hood louver on there! I really want to get one of the louvers as well!
Do you have a link to said making into a smaller package? That would even be helpful truthfully..

Thank you! Yes, always a good time. What is semi-disappointing to me is how quickly the terrain changes out there. One time you can go and have a nice little obstacle, then the next time it's worn down so much that its nothing. But at least for the most part the rock obstacles don't vary that much, which is what I prefer anyway.

When I highlined a friends Jeep we just laid the canister on its side and bolted it down. If you remove it, you will get a check engine light.

OHHH PSHHH! You know what it's like living in the "flatlands" (Illinois)? Everytime time you see a dirt pile you get excited!

Heading out to go skiing and don't know exactly where, but I know Imped did it, and Idaho-Jeep as well. Try searching within their thread.

Ok well, small update. I had to stay home with my son today as he has another bout with strep. I decided to grow a pair and go work in the garage for a short time - IT'S 5 DEGREES TODAY!!

Fender flare removed, all the inner fender cuts unbolted and sitting there. Need to remove the rock slider, then just a few bolts and the drivers fender is out.



See the tiny little heater thing there next to the Jeep? Funny huh? I just about had to insert that into my rectum to get any warmth out of it - lol - otherwise it was a complete waste.

Tomorrow for my scheduled day off - 32nd birthday, I hope to have a portable salamander heater at my disposal - we'll see.

Just for giggles this was the last few weeks has gotten me - I tapped 12 holes so this cage thing could be bolted in.



Good day! My plan is to have both sliders and both fenders off tomorrow. We'll see!

Well, overall good day. Both fenders removed, sliders removed, hood accessories removed, PSC "mock up", moved it out to sweep, and cleaned her up a bit.

Ready to start cutting. But I suspect I wont get to that for a while - not until it warms up a bit anyway.







I am overly excited about this hot mess!

Thanks bud, I appreciate the kind words! I'd like to see a pic of your silver TJ sometime!

Who knew, tinkered with the Jeep for a couple minutes tonight. Made this goofy little tool set at 3.25" that I could run and make a semi-strait line for cutting - as you can tell I am still about as shakey as they come.. None the less, shes ready to get chopped. I may attempt that this weekend.





And because Janesy had me thinking - wanted to see where my tire coverage is/was. The factory Gambler wheel has 5.5" of backspace - minus 1.25" on the spidertrax spacers, I am at 4.25" of backspace. Rubi flare at 4" wide, I don't have a whole lot sticking out - which I like.





Lastly - a little JK'esq mod coming soon. A buddy of mine cut the hinges off the windshield brackets, then welded them shut(in no particular order of course). It will be painted the color of the body with the rest of items to be painted soon. He did it to his TJ and if you're good it will take a double take to figure it out.. Could be i'm living under a rock, but I've only noticed it on his Jeep. It's not like I fold my windshield down anyway..

Nice little contraption for marking the hood! Once you make that first cut, its not so bad and will look great once you get the hilines on!

You end up cutting the hood yet? Going to make some more progress this weekend?

Lol, no, I'm a wuss, it's been too cold. Truthfully I don't see much progress until at the very least it stays in the 30s or 40s. I am brainstorming though on what to do about the fenders - I don't have a welder, or even appropriate wiring to run a welder. So I'm stuck with someone bringing a generator style welder over, or trailering it somewhere to be welded up.

Woe is me huh.

I hear ya. Working on the Jeep in the cold in no fun. And I was in the same boat as you with welding the fenders, right now I don't have my own welder, but I was lucky enough that my neighbor welds for a living and loves to help out.

Nothing to report - still cold - still snow. Here is the "quick" project that is getting a bunch of parts off ole silver. The passenger front fender was repainted white, it will go here, fender flares, rock sliders, and the soft top. I've got a set 5 Gamblers coming with some sort of 31" Goodyear tires - similar to duratracs, that will be replacing these donuts. After that gonna have the rest of the front clip painted, "flush" the cooling system, and be sending this ole girl on her merry way - right in time for people are getting their tax checks!

Ok, I am not going to mention anything about the white Jeep so I don't stray too far from the silver build.. None the less. Here is 10 minutes of work tonight after work..
