Finally broke down on dollars and started pimping myself out to other off-roaders more regularly. I'll give you an update on the current progress and I'll update every so often.

Built this nice little dolly because axle work on jack stands is just back breaking



Harbor Freight was out of their press for almost a month so off to the steel getting place...



Still need to set up return springs and guides for the jack, but it's in working order now, very impressed.



I did all this in a week or two, then this baby comes in the day after I get my Swag Press. Talk about easy, no measuring. It works great. I'd like to get a hydraulic table for it, would make some parts a little easier, but until this I'll be bending.



My neighbor broke his plastic bumper, my son decided to hand me the pliers I needed.



First bends with the tube bender, I'm not ashamed to say that the mistakes i made were completely fixable and Rogue Fab really has made tube bending for everyone.




If you see anything you would like measurements on or whatever just post a question, Im pretty liberal in my designs.

This week I got some more done..

Made new links for my suspension, lowers are approximately 43.5 inches long, Can't remember off hand the uppers length. Hoping the 2x.25 dom will hold up, if no i wont mess with remaking them. I'll just go chromoloy.



This 14 bolt is ready for the Betty White's rear end. Punny.



And last but not least, another buddy dropped his CJ off for a little work. Cage massaging, his jeep came factory with the soft top plastic door handles and he wanted hard doors, so in go the strikers, plus every leaf springs desire, traction bar.

They took it away! I've been tempted to find another one. I haven't been as diligent as I should be on pictures. I've had 7-10 jeeps pass through the doors since the last post and didn't snag a single pic. Shame Shame.

Been a while since an update so here it goes.

Started designing a production model for a yj cj7 cage. Hoping by the beginning of the year to have one standing by for the next yj customer.



I also built a cherokee interior cage. This is about mid way through.




I got tired of the wait for the local cutters parts, so I mass ordered axle brackets and such this time. (yes thats a 5 gallon bucket)



Also a buddy at DW Designs created a logo for me. I'll be offering Free T-shirt contests on Facebook soon so keep an Eye out.

Did some horse trading with some people today, including tombraider here on jeep. Ended the week with a j10 and 99xj. Saw my pile of parts move on. Here is a picture list of things going on.

The wiring harness is for a customers 4.3 tj. Poor guy hasn't driven it in four years and finally brought it in from his usually mechanic for a jeepers touch. The water pump came off the xj. Bet you haven't seen build up like that before.
Then of course the jeeps the shop traded for today
