Did the other side today as well. Guess I could sand that little nipple on the frame tube, it's from using the holesaw to make tube caps.

Looks great man! I may have to borrow this rear shock idea. My 45* shock angle is not ideal.

Thanks buddy! It's getting there. I literally stood there for an hour trying to envision how I'm gonna close up the wheel wells now. When you cut that much out, there's actually quite a lot of stuff that ties into each other on the unibody there. So cutting out it as cleanly as I had hope didn't really happen. For me, anyway.

I love the shocks there, though. So much room. I'm not a massive fan of having the tabs on the spring plate but I wasn't making some intricate bracket that swings over top. Straight up and down, but canted back about 10* parallel to the jeep, which I prefer. Those are 12" shocks. I don't quite use all my travel with the XJ springs. I'm curious to see what will change with the Blazer s10 springs, but I'll have to get my driveshaft modified first.

Bled the brakes real quick, I needed to pull it out of the shop so I could clean the abomination that was a shop.





(I can still go higher, of course)



Had an audience backing the Jeep in, so I made her take a video. What I want to do now is modify the hood, finish the exhaust (it's actually just hanging there by one or two bolts, so that's why it's so loud in the video), do the wheel wells and fenders and tranny tunnel, do a center console, maybe inboard the frameside LCA, make an antiwrap bar, and then maybe wheel the everloving shiet out of it.

Short run, I need to grab my GoPro, the iPhone kept falling off the dash so I just took it easy and quick.
I had like a 3 minute video but the phone just kept falling, would have just been annoying to watch.

Thanks man!

Can't wait to have some matching wheels and tires.. My buddy is gonna mount some tires onto the H2 rims so I'll finally match again.

Said screw it and went without a hood (or filter, sshhhhh, just one time!), there was no way I was missing the local Toy Run - rumour has it there were nearly 600 trucks there this year.
I worked so hard that I started working Friday until 3am, then Saturday morning, and continued working without so much as a 20 minute break until Sunday 11:30am in the morning when we had to leave. I managed to fall asleep in the shower standing up.






Pretty low!


Some quick bracket work before I went, didn't even have time to paint it before I left.

Thanks man! Threw the hood on. One day in the far future I will be redoing the cowl with a mint hood I bought for $20. I just wanted a hood for now.



And non-Jeep stuff, built a tube bumper for a buddy's Xterra
pulled an all-nighter on it with him, I said he's driving home with the bumper on the truck, not in his trunk. Finished at like 7:00am this morning.
He's gonna spray bedliner on it so the gloss black is to get him by





Had some leftover tabs I found in a box of old goodies

I'm liking the clean lines you've kept on this XJ.
That Xterra bumper is looking great too.

Sweet XTerra bumper!

Looks like you still haven't painted the brackets on your front axle; they appear to be turning color.

Just some updates, a lot of these happened earleir on, I just never posted up.

Got a pinion guard from a local guy running his own fab shop, Pyrat Offroad


Had cut up the hood so I had to make bracing in a different spot;




Then my Jeep lit on fire and knocked out some electronics for a bit


Then during the winter, after it lit on fire, rats made a nest inside the glovebox.. (Delissio box is for bracket making, I didn't leave food in the Jeep )


Then I had to pull the tranny for a 50 cent clip.


Getting it back together


With my new daily driver in the other bay




Then this was kinda neat, but I wish I hadn't submitted a pic that showed off my big tow-bar attachment holes in the bumper
