I've been going through this about everyday start to finish, you're killing me haha.

I've decided to get rid of the disconnect housing as well like joe dillard did. Looks easy enough.

Let me know how this goes and if you have any tube leftover that I could buy off you I may do the same.

When I got rid of my TJ and got my YJ, I really started to hate it. But I'm slowly loving YJ's more than I ever could love a TJ. And your YJ is definitely the perfect rig. Trade you my soul for that YJ. haha.

Sleeving the axle looks sweet. I suspected that's what they were talking about but not sure.
You gonna do the u-bolt eliminator plates? Please do pictures. I'll enjoy watching.

See Chris' link above. It was a sweet write-up Mr. Dillard did a few years back. I would like to do that with mine once I get moved into the house and pick up my welder this weekend. Of course I need to address body mounts and a frame patch where I had to cut the steering box bolt out.

Looks like a good site. Let me know how it goes if you buy from them. I was asking because I figured you would have to buy a minimum length from where ever you got it. I know I was not able to get small cuts from the distributors in Georgia. I was probably asking the wrong folks though.

No new progress on the Jeep lately but I did pick up a new toy.

Ive been wanting to upgrade to a 220V welder recently and so ive been casually looking around. I ended up finding a MM175 on CL today for what I thought was a good deal. I went and looked at it and it ended up following me home. Im going to try it out and see how I like it. If I like how it feels and it lays down some nice beads I'll put my Hobart 140 up for sale on CL to recoup some money for the upgrade.

Heres some pics.

Nice.

I just my donor Lincoln this weekend. It has flux core wire which I've never welded with. Either way it will be nice having a way to repair my jeep. First thing are the body mounts and a frame patch at the steering box.

It's kind of needy -- but could you describe the improvement? I have a Hobart like yours and might upgrade to 220. I'm not sure it is worth it...

Im excited for you. HAving a welder is the best tool you can have.

Well to start off it can weld 1/4" single pass. A major improvement that i see is that while welding most things that i weld on my HH140 I'm maxing out my welder. My heat setting is maxed out and i have to do a lot of prep to get good penetration. I will have to still do prep with the MM175 but less prep and get way more penetration. I also shouldn't hit my duty cycle that often anymore either.
