I don't want to drill holes in these wheels since they might be getting sold and bead locks might be next

I still havent gotten it out of storage yet and I am not sure the guy even plows where the trailer and jeep are stored, I will have to check into that next week.

For now, I am getting ideas for spring projects. I think I want to add onto my front bumper, I am thinking of adding some tube on the front that bends up to the sides and add a little grill gaurd. Here are the mock ups









The pictures with the line over the d-ring tabs represents the tube being welded to the d-ring tabs so I can still easily get to the winch bolts and get d-rings on and off. The upper one would have the tube welded to the top of the bumper and I would probably trim the grill up. I would have to use smaller tube so I could still get to the winch bolts tho.

For the rear I have a hitch I am going to flip upside down and build a bumper around, I want to finish the front first. I am also thinking about getting and LED light bar for the roof. I got 4 1440 lumens LED lights I got two for the back of the truck to mount under the bumper and I got such a good deal on all 4 I just dont know what to do with the other 2 so I might mount them on the front bumper.

Thats all thats happening right now

Front bumper plans sound good. Are you going to wrap it around the sides for a little side protection?

I updated my thread with the beginnings of my tube flares. Go take a look.... http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f177/...rsion-1470100/ and leave your comments in this thread... http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f177/.../index140.html

I may but I haven't decided yet. I'll have to check out your build when I can get to a computer. Navigating the forum on a phone is a pain in the *****.

As for the jeep, I found someone selling an xrc8 winch solenoid box so I am going to pick that up and wire it in so I can have a working winch again. Also picking up some 3.5" full pack leaf springs which will sit me right around 5" and if the rake is bad I'll put in some 4.5" coils I got laying around. All that will happen in the spring not before the winter run march 1st

I use my phone 90% of the time on JF now unless I want to see the pics better. Then I use the app on my ipad. The Only time I touch a computer anymore is for work or school.

Yeah I never get on a computer since I moved into my own place, dont have time.

I tried to get the jeep out today so I could take the flat tire off and see where its leaking so I could send it out to get vulcanized before the march 1st trip to dresser. Its stored outside in a grassy area down a hill..found out today its not a plowed area. I drove down and forgot to bring a shovel so I thought I could maybe plow the snow with my bumper..





Nope, got it buried to the frame





Finally digging with an ice scraper and gloves I was able to rock it out



Then almost got stuck going back up the hill to the parking lot



I am not sure how I am going to get it out..Almost thinking of finding someone with a winch and hook up the truck and see if I can winch it along. I did finally find a shovel and shoveled out around the trailer, was able to hook up the truck but as soon as the tires lost traction it found frozen ground and it would just spin all 4 tires. Finally gave up unhooked and went home. Then tried rolling down my pass window and I think I broke the crank inside, I didnt even force it at all. ****ty day.

Thanks man it does but life goes on could have always been worse and hopefully the window is an easy fix. I'm just glad my CV shaft stayed intact on the drivers front. The boot has been ripped and I wanted to fix it before I even tried pulling the trailer let alone romping on it haha. For how hard I pushed that truck yesterday I'll take a broken window crank! I'm gonna try to go down Friday and jack up the jeep on the trailer and take the tire off and vulcanize it myself

Finding the leak in the tire, mixed soap and water in a windex bottle..so far all I can find is a bead leak. I pray thats it
