If you ever decide to sell it, please put me at the top of the list. I likes. I was going to do a TJ tub trailer, but one o those would be a great way to go too!

And put me on the list before Powr, because I'll actually do something with it, Powr will just let pigeons nest in it. Haha

Believe it or not I got that one on GSA auctions for 65 bucks. Had to drive to Tucson AZ to get it but my brother lives there so had some fun. Now it just sits waiting. Lol

It's the 1/4 ton, right? I've seen lots of 1 ton and 1/2 ton ones, but they're awful big for a TJ!

If I were keeping my Jeep a cage would be tops on my list. You don't build for the ride, you build for the **** up. That being said, 99% of the pre-fab cages out there are crap. You won't see me recommending a cage that bolts to the dash. Those things scare me.

Roughly ride height. Obviously still the stock fenders. The fiberglass ones I have on order are 6" flairs.





Roughly what full bump will likely be.





Also rough... That's 17.5" difference between sides though and the shocks should allow it. This isn't final, the upper shock mounts aren't started but that's next. Was just getting ideas of what it would be capable of.



Both sides at full bump.

I could touch them up a bit more with the welder and grinder to make them to the point where you'd never know they were cut/sliced/extended but honestly, once they're painted... This will be good enough that most people won't notice it and if they do, whatever... They're strong as can be where I lengthened them which you saw yesterday! LOL If they fail, it'll be up at the beams, not the tubes that's for sure! LOL They're 1.75x.120 DOM and have now been sleeved with 1.5"x.120 HREW tubing because I extended them about 2" to tie into the transmission crossmember that was already on it. Honestly, if I'd left them stock and made new hanger mounts I could've gained a bit more bump travel but I'm happy with how it turned out. Anyone that was doubting this whole idea of mine... Picture that suspension above, locked front and rear on 35's and go ahead and explain why it won't crawl just fine? LOL On top of that, it's still "IFS" and with the shock combo I'm running it should carry some speed too when wanted. I pulled the front shocks apart today also, checked the valving just for personal knowledge, did a full inspection and put fresh fluid in them.

Andy, go fullsize! LOL White standard cab F150 with TTB 4wd around the corner for sale. Looks fairly clean. They're asking $1350! All stock but maybe a *****in platform! You should buy it and fund it to let me build it how I'd build it if it was mine. LOL Basically go buy it and hand me about $10K and I'll give you a truck in the fall/winter sometime. HAHAHA (actually I'm going to get my *** back in the gym and go use my toys in reality once I'm done with this expo. I need to see if I still remember how to ride let alone race!)

You have open breaker spots? It's not that difficult, BUT you would be messing with live power, and I hate doing that! Lol. You would need a couple of breakers(with bridge) some good solid core 4 wire cable, the box and outlet.

I have a one-time, no warranty offer to set up a soda bargun for someone. It includes the Carbonator, pumps(quantity to be determined) tubing, regulator(for co2), bargun, etc. you would need to provide/supply your own syrup and co2. Syrup can be bought at Costco or maybe sams club. Co2 at airgas or the like. I have a setup, or most of it anyway, but don't ever foresee using it, so it's gonna go away. There's well over 2k in equipment and probably another G in install. Anyone interested, or know someone who is? Pm if you do...
