Nice that your wife is willing to help. I had mine help me bleed the brakes on my TJ after swapping rear axles and she complained the whole 20 minutes it took to do it. There are a few things that cannot be done alone and I hate to have to ask my wife for assistance although she is always screaming in the garage for me to come do something for her.

Sorry your wife yells at you! You better start living right!!

We sure enjoyed our trip to YH. How close are you to there? We ended up on a narrow road going to Lake Chatuge dam, my FIL really wanted us to see the view, but the road was frozen. We ended up sliding about 100' back down the road in the Astro. Kinda fun, kinda not!!

In case anyone is interested, here are some pics of the frame build for my bench seat. It is simple and easy to do. I used 3/4" square tubing and some flat stock. I used my vise and a hammer to bend the steel. Test fitted many times. Measured a great deal. Tacked it all together with my wimpy welder, and took it over to AJ's to weld it up correctly. I could not reuse all of the stock holes from the original seat stands, so I had to drill a few new holes.

Another CJ thread!! I just found this today. That seat bracket ought to be plenty strong. Nice job.

A.J. must have some kind of esp since he always seems to stop by when you're working.

Hey Scott my first thought when I saw this thread was that maybe this will keep you out of the dog house.

I live about 40 miles west of there Scott, in chatsworth. All the mountain roads here were frozen and deep with snow. My only way out of the house was in my cherokee with chains on all four tires, or on the ATV. It was fun the first day or two, but after a few days I was glad to see it go.

You're right about AJ! He's awfully good to me. Can't say I'll stay out of the doghouse, though. Wifey's BD today. I forgot. I ALWAYS forget!! It's so close after all the "main event" that it slips my mind. Remembered on the way home tonight. Had to stop at WM in uniform, which I hate. Bought her some PJs in, like, 3 sizes too big!!! Haven't given them to here yet!!!!!!!! On top of it all, she's sick. Got the kid's mess from GA. So she's grumpy! Ahhh... crap. I'm gonna die!

I can see you getting tired of frozen roads. When we slid down the dike road at Lake Chatuge, my butt grabbed ahold of the seat so tight that I didn't think we would ever separate again!

Hope Beth feels better soon Scott and tell her happy birthday for me! Man you ought to know better than to buy your wife clothes. Flowers are the thing. But who am I to tell you, the man that's been married to the same lady for 20+ years and me that doesn't have that long in 3 wives!!! Yep I need to shut up.
