Looks great! I'm really digging the front bumper. That's gonna look sweet when the front hoop is tied in.

I like both the same . I had a CJ 6 and I loved it , and most people did not . Guess I like the odd ducks .

I bought the winch mount plate from Zach at A to Z . Its really well made and saved me a bunch of fabrication time .

Even with a tubing notcher these joints were a pain .

Fitted and tacked in place .

Mostly welded .


Should have started on the front so my ugly stop start would be on the back .


Cutting the D Ring hangers .


All welded up and ready for primer .



And the finished product . I still have to paint it as right now its just primered , but beyond that it is done . Now on to rollcage , but thats going to have to wait until I make it home again .

Thanks , it was a lot of work but it was worth it to me . The next one I make will be much cleaner . The notching on the tie ins between the two hoops was tough to get just right . The second time will be the charm !

I didnt take any pictures of me pulling the deer damage . I used a ratchet strap to pull against the bumper and I got it mostly pulled out . Thanks to Jakes unused chrome grill you cant tell a deer attacked the LJ anymore .

Lining up and cutting the turn signal homes was a challenge . I ended up scribing them with a 90 degree scratch awl . I then drilled a hold and used a set of good sheet metal snips to cut out the holes .


I picked up a stick of angle iron this weekend to start the new crossmember project . I am going to make a triangle shaped crossmember with a frenched in receiver and d ring hangers . Once thats done I am going to add some tubing to go around the corner of the tub . This should help a little with the departure angle and it gives me an excuse to use the plasma cutter .

The grill looks great man. Glad to see its actually serving a purpose other than collecting dust in the corner of my room.

Let me know when you are gonna hit URE and I'll try to make it up there if I don't have any conflicts with school.

I thought the OME lift was bolt on why did you have to drill out some items?
