Well I've been wanting to rebuild my cage for a long time. I decided Im going to move it up to the top of my list. This will be a pretty expensive project unfortunately so I will hold off purchasing some stuff for my winter project until i can catch up.

The first thing I did was snag the Bend-tech software to help me out. I didnt feel like shelling out $275 for Bend-tech pro so I ordered Bend-tech EZ3D. I know a couple people who use it and say while its not as good as Pro it is still a very good buy.

I also decided to order up some seats. I figured I would give the new Mastercraft Nomad seats a try. The name Mastercraft speaks for itself and the price is perfect. I starting PMing some vendors on Pirate4x4 for some prices, then it occurred to me that sometimes its cheaper and quicker to get things through a major retailer. I hopped on 4WD.com and the seats qualified for free shipping. I also used a coupon code I found online for another 5% off the total purchase. I ended up getting 2 seats for $379 shipped.

Will update when something else meaningful happens

I really dig those seats. Are you going to have to fab up seat mounts or will they bolt up to the stock risers?

Let me know when you want to get started on that cage. I'll bring the beer! Since I will be without work for abit, Iwill have some time to kill. Gonna finish up my rear bumper as well. Let me see what I can do about snagging some tube; what size are you doing the cage?

91 YJ, 350/700R4/231, 8.8/HPD30 with 3.73s, 6" SOA with 38" TSLs. If I ever see the previous owner again, I am going to curb stomp that meth-head brain dead crackpot.

Let me know if there is anything else you need. I picked up 6 of the screw mounts from a 7-ton (the ones that hold the bedsides together) off the side of the road. I plan on using 2 for my hi-lift and 1 for the jerry can mount. That leaves 3 extras if you have any use for them. I also snagged some new vents for the hood as well. Got some other goodies hanging around too.....

Soooooo, your boys "stalked" my wife this morning in the jeep. Scared the hell out of her at a stop light and gave her a card. Hahaha, they got a little more than they bargained for when the dog surprised them from the back of the jeep.

No problem man. And they do look comfy. I hope they feel as comfortable as they look. I imagine they will

Im sure I can find something to use those &-ton screw mounts for.


Yea those "stalker" guys are kinda ridiculous now. The original members are all deployed now so its run by a bunch a JK mall crawlers. They're more concerned about getting as many members on their facebook page as they can and going to the beach every weekend. Pretty gay. There is a select few of us that like to wheel hard. and we're not part of the beach going crowd.
