Your pics in post #523 don't all fully load for some reason so I can't tell if that was the same door or not. If so, what'd you end up doing? That wheelwell looks like the rust isn't wide spread and one of those pre-formed pieces might work well there. It'd save ya some time of it would.
What's with the tower of Peavey amps/speakers? You in a band or just like some vibration with your tunes?

That was the same door. I just hit it with some primer for now. You talked me into replacing the metal, but it will be last on my list. I took a second look at that wheel well, and although the sheet metal is still intact, its pretty flimsy now compared to the one i just replaced! So, I'll probably just make a whole new panel to fit in.

That tower of Peavey speakers is just a fraction of my collection of sound equipment! Me and a buddy started DJ'ing out of high school way back in the day, then it grew into running sound for local bands and venues. Even went on small tours in the tri-state area with bands who are now signed to major record labels! Now, other than a wedding, or a party once a year or so, it just sits in the garage. The pic is about 8 years ago when I was doing a big 4th of July show out in the middle of a field, set up in the back of my truck! Oh, good times, lol. I'm sure I'm the only guy in my neighborhood now with a 25,000 watt garage stereo!

Just read the best damn Jeep sales ad EVER! Couldn't link the ad, so I copied and pasted! I can't quit laughing!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I should start by saying that if you are looking for a “Pajama party Barbie Jeep” you my friend, should keep looking. If you are looking for a short description of to the beast before you, I can offer you two words “MEAT & POTATOES”. This is the All American chariot of the free world.

You are not dealing with any ordinary, cookie cutter Jeep son. This thing was forged from a single block of all American Tungsten Steel. Real sturdy! From that day forward my life has never been the same. Winch yourself off that couch and see if you can handle this Jeep Wrangler Sahara.

So if you are looking for a rice burning hatch back, a solar powered liberal mobile, or even a Hyundai crossover keep on looking my friend this thing is a piece of red white and blue Americana Machinery.

This baby’s pulse is pumping 4.0 liters of uncensored raw fuel through her straight six nuclear power plant. And rest assured this is no metro feminine automatic. . .you command her to obey, with your calloused hand planted firmly on the shifter. And she will obey, the first time, every time. If you can’t handle your stick shifter, or reach the clutch pedal, you better not ferry skip over here wanting to test drive her. If you stall her out, you can count on getting hit in the face with a piece of re-bar and sent back where you came from.

It has A/C but are you kidding me….Really! If you want to blow the sweat off your brow, you do it the old fashioned way: doors off, top down. “What if it rains?”. . .You whiney *****! I told you to stop reading. . . Any man who drives this beast doesn’t give a damn about rain. Not even skin melting acid rain, Cause he’s already dripping wet in blood, sweat, dip spit, and fish guts.

If you are looking for the kind of jeep that has to be pansy parked in the garage, so the “carpet doesn’t get wet and soggy” Then you should plant your Obama sticker on some Japanese piece of ****. Cause this thing has drain holes in the floor and rhino lined to let the blood drain out from the buffalo you just killed, with your bare hands. Because you are William Wallace from Braveheart and when you get home you can leave your “sissy sponge glove car wash kit” in the pink bucket it came in. Go ahead and spark up your 6000 psi heated pressure washer on the dually trailer in your man cave, cause you are Tim Gillespie and you can pressure wash your truck on the inside. She’s got rhino lined floors with a full roll cage in case that buffalo comes back to life while you’re doing 80 over some mountain pass or flooded river.

If you’re thinking about Mexican chrome bumpers for her, think again. The bumper bashers come hand forged in a blacksmith shop in Franklin County over a wood burnin fire, out of 4 inch well casing, and railroad tracks and then I welded em to the damn chassis. That way if you get deployed you can piggy back this war wagon on a deuce and a half and chain her down tight from the four corners, so you don’t lose her when your convoy gets hit by a taliband roadside suicide bomber.

And forget about putting one of those “It’s a Jeep Thing. . .You wouldn’t understand” stickers on this machine cause when you’re spotted in this American Classic there will be no questions, no further explanation required, people will understand and get out of your way. . …real quick.

If you think you’re ready to park this panty hauler on your tract of land. If you buy this jeep you better go get your old lady ready for some damn changes around your lair, cause this **** will be happening. What will be Happening? Glad you asked….

1. More chest hair.
2. You’re growing a beard.
3. Meat Only Diet.
4. T-Rex for a pet.
5. You’re taking a job at the lumber mill.
6. Your car carries five kegs.
7. Penis enlargement.
8. Catch more fish.
9. Wire bristled toothbrush.
10. Sex in the yard.
11. Sex in the garage.
12. All male offspring.
13. Chiseled jaw line.
14. Not giving a damn.
15. Flesh turning to steel.
16. Higher salary
17. Promotions.
18. Better looking wives.
19. Better looking mistresses.
20. More golfing
21. More killing stuff.
22. More dead animals in the KITCHEN freezer.
23. More tools in your garage.
24. Bigger TV
25. Wife takes out the trash
26. Four Wheel Drive
27. Wife brings trash can in from road.
28. Wife stops *****ing about clothes on floor.
29. Wife stocks fridge with beer.
30. Chuck Norris.
31. John McCain
32. Steaks for dinner.
33. Winning the Lottery.

41. Craftsman Tools.
42. Jay Bisset.
43. Welding stuff.
44. Digging holes.
45. Huge Piece of meat.

Put your GPS back in your purse.

Sounds good doesn’t it?

This jeep has carried me through 155,000 miles of battlefield twice as gruesome as the second half of the movie “300″. . ..And just like a trusty steed this juggernaut has never left me stranded. If you think you’ve worn her out you drag this beast back to me in any condition. And Ill handle the rest.

But if you think you’re going to get to whip this mule you better pony up Sixty Five Hundred Dollars. . .American Cash. I’m not selling you this car unless you are clearly a pure blooded American Species, so don’t even think about it.

Ran across this ad for seats today. Figured I'd pass it along to you.

Those would look good with the spice Levi's rear seat that I got, but I'm sticking with black interior. At $330, I think they're a little overpriced too. I got 2 brand new ones shipped to my door last time for only $210!

Yeah I thought the price was a little high also. But for original parts, you know how that goes.

The Jeeps coming along nicely. You may turn out to be a bodyman after all.

I thought I was going to have to do some fiberglass repair after this weekend. I came very close to rolling it over. The wheels were about a foot off of the ground when I threw it back into drive and drove it out.
Wish I would have had a video, but all I got is a picture right before it happened.

Thanks! And let's try not to roll it over! On second thought though, we could probably use a good thread on fiberglass repair! Lol

Well, I just got off the phone with 4wd.com. I went to order the Trail Master 2.5 inch lift kit this morning for $389.00, only to realize that shipping was another $126.00! That was a deal breaker! So I went back to shopping, and looked at the Pro Comp kits. Cheapest was $556.00 with free shipping, and I'd rather have Pro Comp anyway! But, out of curiosity, I called them to see why shipping was so much on the other kit. Apparently, it comes on a pallet, and has to be shipped truck freight. The salesman told me to hold on, and about 5 minutes later he came back and said he could sell me 4 Pro Comp 2.5 inch lift springs, 4 Pro Comp ES3000 shocks with boots, and all 4 U bolts for $446.00! Plus free shipping = Deal!

Now to find some tires!

Springs on a pallet? That seems excessive for sure. Nice job getting the price down, I look forward to watching the install.
