Pancakes and bacon for dinner and new joints, wow I'm spoiled. Pretty cool that they are forged. They are good looking!

I need to get smart and order in bulk instead of getting ripped buying a few at a time.

Not happening, but my goal is to make you see the error of your ways and have you install some real Jeep parts and make the Jeep look like this

That'll keep you and your buffer busy for awhile

I usually buy 5 at a time from Lowes, not really cost or time efficient when you have to drive to get them every time you run out. Just ordered 25 cutting discs, 5 grinding, 5 flap discs and 10 sawz all blades from Roark Supply. Gearing up to do a lot of cutting, grinding and clean up to really finish the rig up the way I should have last year

For this type of cut the sawzall wins by being able to cut through both sides at the same time. You can be surprisingly accurate when it comes to something as important as your frame. And remember you will be leaving a small gap between the frame and the insert to allow the weld to penetrate the entire structure so there is a "little" room for error.

Did that save you some money? I've never looked into it. I've spent more on supplies in the last 6 months than I have in my entire life cutting on this thing. See what happens when you buy a welder???

Yea a good bit not to mention the fuel costs to drive and buy supplies a few at a time 4-5 times throughout a project like I usually do. They have some 4.5" cutting disks for around 70 cents a piece, cheaper flap discs, grinding discs, and PBB discount "Grit". The 70 cent cutting disc are super thin .040 but I actually like them, If you don't press them they seem to cut faster than the .045 discs I usually buy. Press them into the material and they wear pretty quick. I think that pretty much goes for any disc though.

I zoomed in on this photo.... you can see the joint. These are untouched sawzall cuts. I was quite proud of the fit up. The drivers side wasn't quite as good for no particular reason.
