Ohhhh okay well you said welcome Taylor and I wasn't sure if that was a mistake. My bad Taylor!

I used to ice climb in the Appalachia when I lived in VA. I have only been here for about a year.

Sorry about calling you Taylor. I usually only call that at people that piss me off on the freeway.

I've never ice climbed. Looks like something I would enjoy except the cold part. Don't like cold. Did a lot of rock climbing as a youngster including free climbing. I'm too old and beat up for that now.

Some may have heard that converting a 14B to discs saves about 100 lbs. Well, that's correct. I weighed the drums & backing plates. Together they weigh ~82 lbs x 2 = 164 lbs. The discs & calipers are ~33 lbs x 2 = 66. So a savings of ~98 lbs.

Continued a little work on it today. Replaced driver side axle shaft, hooked up the braided hose to the caliper, then started disassembling the passenger side & getting it converted.




Other side so far....

my google skills tell me that is a guy named sam elias climbing the Vale Fang in colorado. I met that dude a few times when I was climbing out there. one of the most athletic people I can say I've met.

this is probably my best shot... if you look down near the bottom you can see me

I'd say come out and try it... but the nearest ice to us is about 500 mi and won't be in for 3 more months at least.

looks good Joe... any plans to paint up those brackets and/or weld them to the flange? what about a parking brake?

I got 7/8s the way through building my bender. got the 8 ton Air/Hydro ram, got the Swag Offroad mount welded together, and got the vertical stand cut out and welded together. just need a longer set of bolts to bolt the whole thing together.

Well, with the exception of the upper rear hatch, the camo wrap is about done!







Jeff, I have about 20+ feet left. Not near enough for your camper but I think I'm gonna order another roll just cause.

Chris, I have another pile of scraps if you need em. Otherwise I save em for patch pieces.

I'm here because
my little girl
doesn't need her dad
on two wheels anymore!
.
Camoflauge, camoflauge, I disappear when I pull out of my garage!

PM me for LED light bars and HID off road lights

Looks great Sam.
but now if you get into an accident they can use the defense that they couldn't see you because your Jeep was camouflaged.

Taylor how much money do you have wrapped up in your climbing gear including clothing?

Jeep should be trail ready this week. Anybody up for a shake down run in the local area next weekend? Thinking one of the trails out at coral canyon as it's not too far away. I'm free Friday morning through Sunday noonish. Either just a trail run or turn it into camping with the run. Either one works for me.

Holy carp Joe what are you planning on doing with all that braking power? Stopping a freight train?!

All about that unibody life.

A guy contacted me from Pirate & may buy them tomorrow. I'm doubting it since he wants a tire to drive on the street as well which isn't a good idea.

Well if you can afford it hang on to the red labels, they sure are fun on rocks.
If they go what tire are you replacing them with?
Also if you go 40" flavor leave the diff housing alone, cutting the bottom out of it really is not good for the strength and integrity of the housing

A lot.

I don't have an exact number, and I've gotten a lot of stuff at discount through friends working at gear shops and whatnot, but its in the thousands of dollars.

my rock climbing rack alone is probably over 1000 with the rope and other softgoods.

my ice gear is about the same with boots, crampons, ice screws, Ice tools.

then there's the 5 or 6 different packs I have, a couple tents, sleeping bags, pads, stoves, etc etc. probably over 2k in that.


I can't even remember all of the pieces of clothing I have for climbing, but when you think about all the winter stuff its probably 1500 or so.

so whats that 5500-6k? that sounds about right... but then you think about multiples of stuff, stuff that gets lost or broken and has to be replaced....



still not as expensive as jeeps though
