update for the day

I was out goofing off today and actually found some mud (hard to come by around hear some times) seeing as the jeep is running so great now I didn't even flinch. I went threw until my passengers said no more( today was also the first day with no top). It doesn't look bad in the pics.

I don't know what they were complaining about, oh wait there the reason the seats are still clean


after playing around I finally trimmed down the winch plate to expose the blinkers.

Did you remember to tighten this bolt down before you test drove it?

Looks like a fun day! Wish I could more motivation to work on mine lately...

The swing away tire carrier is looking great. I like having things you may need on it like you do too. You may see something like that on mine later on sometime.

Are you using an online photo hosting website for your pictures? They should have a way for you to edit them on there. I load my pictures right off my computer. I use Adobe photoshop CS3 to edit my pictures. The only bad thing about doinf it that way is that I can't insert text between the pictures, at least I haven't found a way yet. When I edit mine I first crop the picture, if it needs it, then resize it. On mine I can resize by either size in inches or pixels. I usually just make them all 3" wide. That way they fit the screen and are not too big.

Well work has me so tied up write now that I haven't even turned my computer on in 15 days let alone update my thread.

On the plus side I also don't really have much to update, so I'm not too far behind.

I'm in the home stretch on the tire carrier, all I have left is to put the sides on the box section and some clean-up then it's ready for paint.

I did manage to get everything on a scale and all total with full gas cans and a 33 inch spare it is 420 lbs. The spindle is rated at 3000 lbs. so it should be fine so as long as the frame holds up there shouldn't be any issues, (I hope)

I wanna see this tire carrier. That's a heavy duty spindle you're using too.

OK Jim just for you (and every one in an area too cold to work out side) I went and pulled the jeep out of the garage and took some photo's of the carrier and here they are and I'm sorry in advance for the crappy pics. and I still cant seem to resize them.

as it sits now

p1210066.jpg

lynch pins holding the tools in place

p1210069.jpg

lynch pin and spacer that hold the hi-lift, also the way the bungees attach

p1210068.jpg

the cords only keep the tools from rattling and I'm not sure if I like that idea or if I'm going back to the drawing board

p1210070.jpg

I used 4 pins on the door to the box so I could take it off and put it under a tire if I was stuck in soft sand, it swings just fine otherwise.

p1210071.jpg

again sorry about the pics. and keep in mind this is all scrap I had in the back yard (except some small parts)

update

well today started out great got the latch system in and welded and all the rest of the welding done on the Carrier.

p1230073.jpg

p1230076.jpg

p1230074.jpg

so I thought that while I had it all put together I would put it up on the jeep and see how it looked, and thats when my day went to s**t.

am I the only one who sees a problem here.

p1230079.jpg

with the bumper centered the Carrier is off by one inch, now I have to cut out the spindle Carrier and move it in. Not fun!

not to sure how I feel about the spare tires hight either, but thats were it has to be in arder to claer all the other gear, maybe it will look ok with the roof rack.
