The back half of the frame is going to the scrap.

The back of the Cab is only partially finished. There will be a better structure in the cab once I get the tubing and plate cut up for it. What you see is only to get a general shape for the cab and give me something to build from.

The back half of the frame. I didn't see fish plates or anything and it didn't look like a very Hendrix type job!

Thanks, It was like that from the original owner. I plan to make a new rear frame section with built in leaf spring mounts, shackle mounts, shock brackets, Bed mounts and cage tie ins for the tub and bed.

Keep that steel, you can make all kinds of brackets and what not out of it.
If it needs a instrument cluster I have a complete one out of a 97 TJ you can have

Awesome concept! And I already appreciate you occupying some spots on page 1. Tuning into The Flop late/or infrequently was a pain in the a$$ until you made the readers digest version.

Crawled!

I will be checking in on this one frequently Hendrix. What are you planning to use for a top? And are you going to make the bed out of more TJ tubs? Looks like you're off to a good start!

Come on Johnny, regear the flop and drag it out west for your King of the Hammers week. Me and my bud will spot you through some trails, guaranteed to have a blast. By the way if you need online support for your gear setup just pm me, glad to help ya out, I have done a bunch of them.
