Dude, lovin the Jeep and especially the fact that you've been making it all yourself. Really impressive stuff man. I wish I had access to some of those tools at your machine shop, all me and my buddy got is a MIG and a grinder...haha, hopefully santa can bring me a tube bender and some other tools...
I was wondering how you welded the tubes on your 8.8. Did you just weld to the cast or did you heat up the cast first? I also liked your gas tank skid, any more info on how you did that? Love the Jeep and keep up the good work man. Also if you ever venture down to Georgia you outta come wheel with us.

Edit: Just saw the link for the gas tank mod. my bad.

thanks a lot. Im pretty lucky when Im at school but other than these sliders everything has been done with a grinder and a flux core welder... well and the tube bender at my cousins... For the 8.8 tubes i just welded them, they had been sitting out all day in the july sun so the axel was too hot to handle already so i just called it good.

I would watch those axle tubes in case they spin. Cast needs to be heated up alot (like 1300 degrees F)for complete fusion. let me know how it works for you. I guess it cant really hurt it too much since your just adding more support basically.

I love those rockers too man, cant wait to see them mounted up.

yeah i know they should have been heated but im not really that concerned. the biggest tire they will see is a 35 and im pretty easy on the throttle. I know someone that beats much harder on his 8.8 w/o welded tubes and he has yet to spin any tubes

Just found this thread. Awesome job on the mini-boatsides!

How's KC Jeep Club? Decent bunch of folks? I'm moving to Lee's Summit in September.

Love the first post with the poser shot on the SPE rock. What chapter are you from? Brings back good memories. Always have a red door though

Coming together nicely man!


Looks like we are about in the same place. Just got my sliders welded up and painted and the rear crusher corners painted. As soon as I get the front tube fenders painted I am going to put it all on at the same time. Nice work you're doing.

FINALLY, we got to work on my jeep, the snow has killed my fab time this week... anyways, a guy in my club bought some 36s locally and let me borrow them to open up my wheel wells since i plan on going up to those this summer.

so first we started by figuring out how much we needed to trim off the wheel well. we flexed it out on some snow... only good thing its done for us...

so the trimming...
Before


During


After


then we marked the corner gaurds and took them to a buddies shop and plasma'd the wheel well, door opening and gas cap





also, we pulled the fenders off mine and put the hilines we are working on for another guy just to see how they look on mine 8).


we are starting on mine in the morning

also quick pic of my jeep on 36s :twisted:
