That wasn't so hard. $15 for the DOM

I'm inclined to not care about balancing it. There's 100% chance I'll bend it again and even the slightest bend would counteract any balancing. I ground the welds just to make the amount above the tube the same all around.

thoughts?

maybe should of slipped on a sleeve, welded where you welded then rosette welded the sleeve over your work. Or use it as a spare and pony up for a new tom woods...

I already bought a tom woods, bent it, bought another one, bent that one. I blame the spotter.

$254 with shipping for new, each one, so I think I'll try something different this time. If this works out I'll re-tube the other one.

I can't use more than 1 1/4 tube or it won't clear the transmission.

good times. I need to go get new joints now

hey Jeff, can't blame me for spotting. I was about 3 or 4 jeeps back... On a side note, I think I screwed up my 2nd gear syncro in my tranny. Wants to grab a little bit every time I go to 2nd.

Update on my brake line....
I got to thinking about them last night and opened my Jeep file folder. I did replace the front brake lines when I put the '95 D30 in. The calipers on the '88 were different and I couldn't use them. So the lines were about two years old.
Upon closer inspection (I pulled the right front wheel off), it seems something bent the tube that comes out of the caliper toward the wheel, and every time I went full left lock on the steering, the hose was rubbing the inside of the tire. Probably a branch or rock from the last trip to Big Bear.
Anyway, the hose burst there in the middle where it was rubbing. $22 later and it's back on the road. Checked the other side and it clears fine.

Now to put a tail pipe on it and I'm ready to wheel.

Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!
Zombies hate fast food.
Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

I have been building my own this way since I built my jeep, never had any issues and never balanced and can do 80 on the highway vibration free. At least none from the shaft.

I have lots of free parking at my place if you wanna come by. There's free cable TV, and Wings & Things in El Cajon is just up the road a few miles.

Or.....there's plenty of other options nearby where grub can be picked up and ate over here.

Thanks joe. Next time. Turns out I have to stop by my work and kick the email server.

Might go to a place near there after if I don't get hung up
