Put a driver side floor board in for around 35 bucks. Had to borrow a buddy's welder. I know it looks like crap but hey first time welding and first time doing any body work........


24 hours in a day. 24 beers in a case ... coincidence?

When in doubt? GAS IT!!!!!

Parachute For Sale! Only used once. Never opened. Small stain.....

Master flow MF450 $60, synergy mounting plate $39. Just made it under $100. I think I still have some wire loom in the shed.

for the old timers using leaf springs, its only a matter of time until a leaf breaks, and thats usually on the trail. I made up 6 of these nifty clamps to save the day when needed. Broke a main leaf (double military wrap helped) and got me home. Easy, cheap and when needed...priceless.


Look it's a 4.6!

This is hardly exciting but I figured I would post it anyway since I like seeing free solutions... I got tired of my cb coax just being run over the tub and decided I wanted to install a rubber grommet for it to run through. While I was having my tires rotated the other day I saw some old valve stems that had been chopped off in the parking lot, they looked like they would work so I decided to give it a whirl as a grommet. Drilled out the center large enough for the cable to fit through and drilled a hole in the jeep large enough to get the valve stem through. Works pretty well actually and looks much better.

Good idea. I like seeing I did this for 100 or less rather than I bought this for 100 or less

08 WK bone stock
00 WJ daily driver
99 TJ mostly stock 97 TJ cheap jeep
81 CJ7 very little stock
60 CJ5 tore down

That looks terrible. Why would someone do that and post it to a forum. Id be embarrassed to show that to anyone.
