Awesome build!!! I'm ready to go cut my YJ in half and make it a truck. O wait, it would take me way to long and I would be pissed off because I don't have the time or the resources that are needed to complete something like this.

On a side note, the third break light that is up in the hard top in the video it didn't seem like it worked.

Great job and I'm looking forward to seeing how the buggy well turn out.

Thanks, the 3rd brake light is not wired in yet. The buggy is probably on HOLD for a little while. I am thinking about building a RC version of the buggy first though.

Nothing done to the Jeep today, I did make a stop at the pick a part to grab an alternator and a speed sensor.

Big work going down tomorrow.

Never was a distraction, I enjoy doing projects like yours, it gets me away from the normal daily grind at work. When the owner takes pride in the finished project the way you do it makes it all worth it. As much as it cost to actually do and the little I cleared on the project you can clearly see I did not do it for the money. I know you and your family will enjoy that trailer on your many road trips across the US for years to come. Thanks looking forward to making the LJ look better than the trailer...



Going out the swap alternators, fix the exhaust rattle and notch some tube today. Pictures later.....

Did not get as much as I needed to get done today, I was a bit lazy.

I did get the alternator changed out, it works and there is not annoying squeal.

I also finished the overflow mounts. Then spent some time setting up my Harbor Freight notcher. I was finally tired of notching with a grinder.



Here is the plate to correct the alignment on the HF notcher.



Notching station.



You can see the spacer behind the clamping plate. It may need to be a little thinner.

First test notch.



And the bumper you have all been waiting to see. Its a DV8 Offroad stubby. Probably the tightest fitting bumper on the market. A very nicely built Aluminium bumper with welded Fairlead mount. It is not 6061 but bent out of 5052. I do not want this to turn into a pissing match about alloys. I will be doing a product test on the bumper in the near Future. As far as quality its very Nice.



The winch fits very tight between the plate and the grille. I will see if I can get it mounted later this week.

Click here for info.
