Hey Hussler, Just found your build here and read the whole thing. I admire your creativity man, most folks couldn't pull out the build you just did.

I did want to mention a couple of things that I saw to you. I am a professional welder, and I noticed that your welds are looking a bit cold, cold welds do not have enough penetration and are prone to cracking. You will want to keep an eye out on this and if you notice cracks forming you need to pull the bumper. Granted you did take the "there is no kill like overkill" route, so you may be fine. But I'd hate to see that bumper crack apart while you were towing your boat on the highway or something.

I am not sure what you are running for a welder, but for future projects if you are running a smaller machine you may want to look into getting a more powerful one. Personally I am running a Lincoln Power Mig 256, you wouldn't need to go that big, but I would not go any smaller than the Miller/Lincoln 180 series.

Over all though you did a good job of bringing that XJ back around, I'd have honestly scrapped it being as rusty as it was in the back. I think you keep practicing with this stuff and you will be a pretty solid fabricator before too long, you certainly have an aptitude for it. You may also want to check out www.weldingweb.com lots of good information there.

That is a very slick Jeep, I hope you don't mind but I shared one of your photos on my facebook page. CJ7 Fanatics

RARECJ8,
Do you have any more pix of the box in your bed? Does that drawer pull out when the gate is open? is it water proof? Make it or buy it? It is just the wife and I and two dogs so I am gonna ditch the back seat and was thinking about doing some type of 6-8 inch high drawer/box that the dogs can ride on top of.

Its from Tuffy and I mounted it 4" above the deck to allow under storage. Locks and is water tight. Very strong and supports other gear. Stores all sorts of extra stuff, welding tools, etc etc. These are from several years back-- its much more improved there since but these give the idea. Rig has evolved also...

Hey mrbeast, yeah I've been welding quite a while now but your absolutely right, my Hobart is not what it once was. It was a great welder when I first got it but it plain old doesnt heat up like it used too. I havent had any welds go bad on this Jeep yet but your right, some were way too cold especially on 1/4", which is why I tend to use 3/16"s a lot hahaha! I'm going to get the miller 211 after I clear up my cards from the holiday season.

As promised video, quite a sweet one too actually! Wheeling a half frozen creek bed.

You know if you are going to spend that kind of money I strongly recommend you take a look at the Lincoln Power Mig 256, it is by far the sweetest wire feed I have ever burned with, the power source on it is so incredibly smooth and it makes beautiful welds.

I would get a bigger machine but I really want the versatility of 115v, the 211 will do both voltages. If you lay a couple beads with the hobart 140 it starts to heat up real nice, and can do 3/16 quite well. I think the 211 will be enough for what I want. I have a humongous miller arc that can do up to 3/4" If need be.
