Also a good thing to continue, to get over the floppy thing, since it does screw with your mind for a bit. It was basically inevitable, have had quite few close calls that I drove out off. Will probably happen again too

Busy day at ahole fab

Went to visit a wheelin buds house for some wrenching fun and hanging out.

Kurt wished the front of his house had this many Jeeps in front of it everyday!


It's hard to find good help, but these two did alright
Nick helped me get some tube fenders made up


Mr. green is getting a new (to him) HP D30. We swapped his ARB over and installed new 488 R&P for him. Actually he did most of the work. i (Kurt) drank Coronas and pointed a lot...





Art came by to make sure we did it right


A happy, healthy axle ready for duty

Can I 'tag' and 'like' myself on jeepforum? Haha


Wonder what would have happened if I tripped while walking?

Today's little projects
Made a license plate mount on the tire carrier
Added a bit of tube to the cage.
Also got the last 40" MTR delivered by Brown Santa.
For decent price on MTR's and free shipping to some states check this place out.

My little put put Jeep wanted some other sneakers, some heavy SOB's too. Took some serious man handling to mount them, get them of the tire machine and get them puffed up. Looks pretty cool though. Got's to love them foorties



Gonna have to find some time and flex er out to see if all is well and all clearances are a go. If not I will have to find some wheel spacers

Dang Art, I haven't check this thread in quite awhile. I've been missin' out.

BTW: I passed off my business to a relative and now I'm doing something else.

Out in the sunlight





Found some stickers in the mail, never asked for them. Thought that was a pretty cool gesture



Difference between 37" tire and 40" tire 36.5" versus 39.5"

Gots to built me a flex ramp some day out of a bunch of scrap steel

This temp ramp building is for the birds, on the bright side looks like the sneakers will work and clear. Guess a quicky trip up Cleghorn is next
