Check out the QC jeepers, They have a nice club and go to the cliff's often. Theres also mississippi valley jeepers, MIOBI, 4x4 syndicate (sp)? and a couple others. Iowa has no OHV areas so mud roads and creek beds is about it unless you travel to an off road park.

There is another guy I met on the Jeep Cherokee forum, his name is Nick. He lives in Moline. He has a YJ, like mine.
Havent met in person yet, but with spring around the corner, we could all get together and see each other's rides.

Worked on the YJ for about 4 hours on Good Friday. I got the drivers side floor board done.. now just need to finish a couple pieces on the passenger side, and then I can rhino line the floor and then put the interior back together.

I am a home/garage mechanic (not professional) but have been working on things for over 20 years, and have a good welder and learning to weld, so if anyone needs assistance in the QCA, let me know.

if u need any assistance, im a welder by trade...

what I need is some assistance making some sturdy front and rear bumpers.. I was looking for some round tube.. but would like to build a new rear cross member. know anyone that can bend a 1/8" plate a couple times with a press brake?
In the military I was a sheet-metal guy, used all sorts of machines like power shears, cornice brake, box and pan brake, tubing bender, etc.. but just don't have the facilities to do what I need.

how big are the pieces? i have access to a piranah ironworker that can do some things... ill think on other options.

Basically I was thinking of making a new rear cross member, since mine was partially rusted away on the driver's side. I was thinking of just cutting it out all together, and then making a new piece and then weld it back in. This will give me the cross frame strength, and also be a great place to attach a new rear bumper and accessories.. etc..
It would be a U shape (half a box) approx. 48"long and then 6" tall with 4" lips on the top and bottom.. not sure what the price of the metal would be.. wouldn't need to be 1/8" necessarily, but would need to be thick enough to be strong.

I live near Muscatine and have a 94 YJ. We just got back from the Cliffs jeep get together, and man I wish we had that place nearby. Of course the jeep would probably be a lot more beat up...planning in a trip back there soon.
