Nice rollbar add-on. Did you use a 220v welder or 110 will do? I'm looking to do the same but also add some in the front, looking for a welder but don't have a 220 hookup where we rent..

I used my 220v Lincoln 180 mig. I originally had a Craftsman 110v it wouldn't have been able to handle it. Not sayin a 110 can't weld it, a good quality welder like Hobart or miller 110v would probably do it. I just wanted a 220v for welding thicker stuff.

I see. In the market for a welder and I think I'm gonna hold off for a 220v

Installed new timing chain tonight. Camera kept takin a crap on me and not saving pics. I will take some pics tomorrow and post up what I have done. I'm kickin around the idea of doing a write up on how to replace timing chain and set timing after you've broke a chain and jumped timing. I'm no expert but figured I may be able to help someone else down the road.
It's been too long since I have worked on the jeep. Been working long hours and weekends and by the time I get home and help the wife get the kids to bed I'm too tired to work on the jeep.

I do 1/4" with my lincoln 110V mig , works great and very portable... Anywhere you have a 110 outlet... All my welding on my jeep, my kubota (chain hooks on the bucket and grapple) and my 10K trailer... Just saying 110 v will do a hell of a lot!.

Now back to the thread!!!

I agree but my craftsman wasn't up for the job so I went with the Lincoln 180.
