Not really a Jeep update, but I did buy myself a shielding gas cylinder for my welder. Flux core is nice, but I have some smaller projects I want to get done without the mess. I brought everything up to my little workshop to get the welder hooked up for gas, only to find out I have a bad regulator. I called Hobart about the issue and within 5 minutes, I had a new one being shipped to me. The regulator would only stay at 50cfh and would adjust higher, but no lower. I am pretty happy with Hobart's customer service.

Crazy how much such a small bottle costs isn't it? I just bought a 40 cubic ft tank last week for the whopping price of $180 from AirGas.

I figured that I would be waiting a couple weeks for my new regulator from Hobart, but to my surprise, I received an email today saying that a package is out for delivery TODAY!

I'm with you on this, I know you also have rokmen arms and all I can say is the welds are magnificent. I would love to have that capability one day (before I build my ultra 4 buggy...haha).

I love my Rokmens. I am hoping to go with them all around on the Jeep. My rear uppers are the ones that are adjustable without having to disconnect them. Well worth the very pricey investment
