Spent a lot of time in the garage today and got the jeep frame completely torn down. The axels and suspension was a ***** but got it all off minus the steering box. That'll be last and come off sometime this week. Noe time to start cleaning the frame and see if I can rent a sand blaster to get it nice and clean.

i love when storied start this way except when its me. haha

So....... No ***** there I was... taking the rear bumper off the frame as part of my tear down. I know I need to replace the rear cross member so I wanted to get the bumper off. It looked like it had been welded some time after it was bolted to the frame so I wasn't worried about it falling but I figured before the last bolt come out i'd put one back in on the other side so if it wasn't bolted it wouldn't fall and hurt me. well second torc on the last bolt and SNAP!!!!! the bolt broke and the bumper was NEVER welded to the frame like it look and it dropped about 3.5 feet on my left foot. Luckily nothing broke but I'll have 3 less toe nails on that foot here soon.

So what injuries do we have out there?
