Thanks everyone. I hope to get back in the garage this week. I was going to work yesterday, but my girlfriend's Jetta decided it wanted to overheat so I got to work on that, and I need to finish it tomorrow evening after classes.

Out of curiosity, why would you envy me?

went to the Carl Casper auto show this weekend... Saw this and laughed... A LOT.







I almost went up to the guy and asked him WTF was he thinking but I didn't.

Passenger side drop 60 front, and I forget the rear axle, may have been 60 70 or 14 bolt.
49" IROKS.
It is my new inspiration for my jeep.

Dear VDub,
Your water pump sucks on my girlfriends 1.8T Jetta. Why did you need to put a plastic impeller on the water pump that comes apart at 65000 miles. I spent a lot of hours trying other things and my ideas didn't fix it.

Thanks,
Tyler

That being said, I have no other immediate project vehicles, so I plan on spending a few hours out in the garage tonight.

After not touching the jeep for almost 3 weeks, I worked on it a bit this evening.

I did some grinding and welding on the rear.

I also did some planning on my rear crossmember. I don't think my original though for my crossmember will work.

I think I will put a large tab off of the frame with a gusset or two on each side. Those tabs will be tied into the crossmember which will have 2 gussets on each side as well. I am taking the body lift off so there isn't quite as much room under there to make everything fit like originally planned.

Also, the BL came out and I'm going to replace the rubber pieces with poly ones as well as soak the metal inserts/cups to remove the rust and then sand them down for a little bit of paint.

Designed a new rear crossmember again.



It should have plenty of gussets. I didn't feel like sketching both sides so here's just one side.

They say, A picture is worth a thousand words. This one is only worth the 3 letters, you have already laid down, WTF.

On another note, it seems that there is always someone breaking balls about how someones welds look. Mine by no means look that great, but I know when there is proper penetration and when there is not. I also know that welding underneath like that is tricky. I think your stuff will be fine. A ton of people build the crap out of their jeep using all of the factory brackets. Sometimes they fail, mostly by bending, sometimes by ripping off. But start cutting those off and check out the factory welds, thats scary.
Good work...........

Agreed on the factory welds... I spent some time with a new frame on my rig cleaning everything for coating and couldn't believe the quality of welds under there.

Good luck with your build.

I haven't touched the jeep in a while. I had good momentum going and then Things started happening that didn't allow me to work on the jeep.

I will get this stage finished, it will just take a lot longer than I figured.

I cut the tube for the crossmember. It will need a little more grinding and the loose paint removed before I weld it into place.

I also stripped most of the rust off of the metal body mount pieces, by soaking them in some rust remover. I'm going to paint them before I put them back under the jeep.

I picked up shorter bolts for my body lift removal. I hope this weekend to get a whole lot knocked out.

I just found these photos taken about this time last year at Harlan, KY.



Just before sunset.
