looking at the screenshots on their website "A1" is just used to identify the bend, which typically is located at the center of the bend radius (not a location ON the bend, but beyond it - the radius distance is measured from this point)

Like so:

4.5" Homebrew Lift, 4.0L HO I-6, AX-15, NP231, D30(Open)/C8.25(Locked)
33x12.5 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Tires, 309,000 mi and runnin' strong

haven't been on in a while but since my last post I made some rock sliders out of 2x6 .118 wall tube and 2x2 .188 wall tube. the 2x2 was used to fasten the rectangular tube to the ruff stuff stiffeners.

Not the prettiest weld right their. It was a pretty rough morning..

thanks! When getting the locker up front I was pretty concerned with driving in the snow but its really not bad, I drove it around during a snow storm and it didn't give me any trouble and I only really needed it when I was taking off from a stop.

sick 2a by the way! this is my dads, im trying to get ride of our cj5 and get a 2a or 3b for myself.

Tell your dad that's an awesome 2a!

Im still trying to figure that out, I need to get on my dads cad program and map it out. So far I think the front fenders will be similar to the ones this black one has but mine would bend down to my winch bumper. The rear ones will be like the one in the blue xj but stick out enough to cover most of the tire.

finished a bumper today well just about but here it is

The brackets



brackets are made of 6x4 1/4" plate, 2x4x.188 tube, and 2" plate that was sitting around the garage.

The actual bumper is made of 63" long 5x2x.188 tube

Cut a square in to add a receiver I bought from good old harbor freight





placed the bumper up to jeep and tacked it all up to pull off and weld





just need to paint it now


ugly welds on the brackets, took me a bit to get used to new wire.
got a little better

painted the bumper today and cut out a spot for the fuel filler and positioned the cell. I'm going to North Carolina for a week and when I get back I'll put the cell in and finally send the 8.8 to get re-geared.
