yeah i had them next day air it though, should be here on friday. Well good news is i got the pitman arm bolt off. bad news is the pitman arm wont come off after 3 days of soaking it with pb. So far i broke 3 pitman arm pullers. 1, when i first tried to get it off when i did the lift. I couldnt get it so i left it alone. now i want to reduce my bump steer so i broke two more to day. i broke all the ones the auto store has. so iam off to napa tomarrow

haha my bad, iam makin a rear bumper. basic bumper for now. plan to add and tire swing later on. forgot to get pictures of most of the work. i cut the metal down to 54 inches, then cut the angle on it. Today i closed in one end of it, this is the first welding project ive done, ive learned alot. i finally got the welder set up right. This end is just about done, need to smooth it out a bit.
