I built the jeep on the roadkill episode,
which I was 17 years old and the first time building anything.
For everyone who thinks it crap,
I would bet money when you were my age,
you didn't even know what a welder was
and probably still have to pay people to change your oil.
Also I told mike finnegan the suspension wasn't right
That it had to be rebuilt, and ran awesome when I owned it

Actually at the age of 17 I'd worked in a welding shop fabricating beam for steel buildings for a few summers. All in all it's a cool jeep I love Flat Rods. Ashamed maybe a little harsh I've built hack things before also. The welding work was rough though. Why did you sell it?

I can see how upset you would be especially when finnegan razed on Your welds on air. As I said before the jeep has got potential, sure the welds didnt hold up.
I actually grew up on a farm and learned to stick weld at age 10 were my welds any better? definitely not! The best thing you can do is learn from your mistakes and not do it again. I will never proclaim to be a pro welder but I damn sure will not drive it unless I can trust my welds.

I gotta give ya props kid, at 17 most kids these days are addicted to video games and tv and wouldnt know the slightest thing about how suspension works let alone how to weld. Keep it up and never let your passion die we need more people like that in this world. Just don't get so butt hurt when people call you out, shrug it off and learn from it. As I'm sure you will and build bigger, badder, better stuff!! Good luck keep your head up and don't let it rule your life and you will be a better man for it.

^^Well said!^^

We (an older generation) are soon to suffer from the lack of knowledge and motivation of these younglings.

Lol, I apologize for the immature remarks,
I really wanted to build something I had in my head
Well my welding did get better
and I figured out what gussets are.
Thanks for the criticism
It changed my whole attitude.
I sold it because I went to far in the wrong direction
And obviously the suspension wasn't right,
So I figured to cut my loss, and fund a new project

Just so there is no confusion, I meant that as a compliment to you and a sort of encouragment as well. Let's not end up like those folks in the pics!

Me too but my crawlin jeep keeps my pockets sufficiently empty at least while I continue getting it like I want. I honestly never dreamed buying an already "built" jeep could take so much to the way you want.

I even have 2A I want use but no money or time to do it yet. Maybe next year. If I do get to build one it will be 4 wheel drive. That's my one problem with all these as cool as they are. 2-4" drop 72" wms axles and 33" tires is brought plan. Possibly adjustable ride height.

I think it looked pretty cool, my buddy and I are actually thinking about doing a rat rod and werent sure what we wanted to use for the body... Im thinking YJ since there are a lot around and they are usually pretty rusty frame wise. Engine we are thinking a 12v cummins or a big block chevy... but we want it to blow some black smoke.

Any ideas as to what off the shelf axles would be wide enough to be wider that the tub of a 75 CJ5? Would Waggy axles do it, or would you need to go tons?

How wide is the tub? I found a ford 9" van axle that is 67.5" wide. Has a 5x5.5 wheel pattern
