Here's one of the many ore chutes in the mine. The black dots you see on the left support were the miners accounting system. For every ore cart sent through the chute, they would make a smudge mark from their carbide lamps.
The climb was worth it. This was a huge stope. A stope is an area cleared into a cavern to remove whatever ore they wanted. When a stope cuts through the surface it becomes an open stope. Even shot wide from a distance I wasn't able to capture how huge this area was.
If anyone needs repairs done to their soft-top go to West Charleston Auto Upholstery. This guy has made a role bar cover as well as sewn up and patched my soft top. He does great work and great prices. 702-870-4097 Just thought I would throw that out there, itís hard to find good service in this town.
Any chance of posting a picture how they fixed a tear in your soft top? Friend of mine is looking to have a tiny tear in a mustang conv. soft top fixed before it gets worse but doesn't know where to go. I looked around and pretty much was told they aren't something that's fixable while still looking cosmetically good...
You got any more hookups for 06 tj stuff? Would love to have some spare stuff lying around! Of course I'm willing to pay for it, just so long as it's reasonable prices.
Honestly I don't. I just kinda walk into deals by pure luck more often then not. It killed me cause about 2 months ago I had the chance to buy a complete '06 rubicon drivetrain for $2000. Motor, 6 sp. and the 4:1 case. Had 18K on the it and it was 100% complete down to the full exhaust and everything. The guy had done a full hemi swap and took everything out in one hit basically. I was too deep in another HUGE project 3 linking my other desert toy and couldn't justify having that motor/trans package laying around. That would've been a great swap!
I'm only jealous of the fact you have a place to work on your rig. I had access to a full customizing shop when I lived in NC, sadly my apartment parking lot here, doesn't even compare. haha Good Luck with the swap, hope it works out.
LOL, I know the feeling. For the first year I lived here in Vegas I still had a fully furnished house with fully capable garage on 2 acres in northern Az. I was renting a room here. LOL It killed me just having to even pay to have my oil change let alone not being able to have my own stuff! I finally got a place of my own out here a few years ago now and have that az. property as a rental but I'd rather sell it!!! Ain't happening anytime soon though with the property market out here...
It can be done in a full size truck with 33s and a locker, but you will enjoy the trip a lot more in your Jeep.
LOL, not concerned about scratches in the truck that's for sure since it's got a high dollar do it yourself krylon paint job! LOL And as you can see it's not your "average" truck... It's always a tossup on jeep or truck to go play with cause if I truely don't need the front wheels for climbing over boulders the truck is actually usually more comfy!
