My buddy that has the blue YJ, the downside is, he doesn't have that small of a dye for it. He built his own cage.

I'd have one if the dies weren't so damn expensive. What's his smallest die?

I forget the size, I'll talk to him in class later today and ask. I know he doesn't have one small enough for fenders

The fenders are 1.5". I am planning a cage though, so I might have to hit him up down the road.

Well, last night the former owner of the Ram used for the transplant came by, and we raced around in Betty, terrorizing the neighborhood for a while. Many beers were consumed. (The two activities didn't take place at the same time; I hope that's obvious.)

I've been taking a little break from working on the Jeep, but still gathering parts. I have my CB, antenna, wire, etc., as well as an external speaker to mount to the roll bar. My fenders are scheduled for delivery on Monday, so I'll probably get back at it pretty quick here. Plan is to get the mods done to the hood and fenders, then start the body work in preparation to paint.

I'm going to have to make my way over there to help tear up the town in that thing

Save it for the woods.

You know, all I have to do is paint a bumper and throw it on the back, install that CB. After that, I don't think there's nothing really keeping me from taking it out.

Might have to stick to the bunny hills with my stock suspension and massive 31" tires, but I have an itch to get out there. Cabin fever in full effect.

I think Bundy Hill might be open on the 16th, I messaged them, but haven't gotten a response.

Make sure your winch is operational.
