Rubicon Locker Mod, I can now lock the front and rear while in 4HI as well as 4LO. It cost less than 2-bucks, so why not do it? I didn't use the bypass switch either.

Flushed the cooling system and filled with fresh Zerex G05.

Also got a pair of these to put on



Got them here, repainted them, gotta get longer bolts and they're on.

Wrecked it. I got hit by an old lady who went straight thru the turn. Ripped the axle mounts off. Savvy arms are fine.snapped the axle in too. Shifted the body on the frame. Most likely totaled.rear of the frame is trashed. Im ok. Aside from the concussion and tweaked back. I smashed my head on the roll bar. Ill post picks latter.

That sucks man. A trashed frame just about kills any hope of saving or salvaging it. But I'm sure you'll find a nice replacement and get back in the game.

Well If you happen to have another Jeep with a trashed body but good frame laying around like someone I know, I guess it's not an issue.

I did that in a couple of cases (and the bent frame was not the only reason for doing so), but does that apply to the dozens of other frames my dad and I have fixed over the years? Don't speak on matters you know nothing of. Fixing frame damage is one of those matters.

Relax dude. I'm just basing that off the dozens of other Jeeps on here that have been wrecked and totaled due to frame damage. Not everyone can fix a frame.

Put some in-cab winch controls in the dash

I put the in/out controls on the left side of the steering wheel and put the "safety" switch on the right side. That way if I had the doors off people wouldn't be tempted to play with the red button!

I am relaxed dude, but I'm basing it off of actual experience. I've seen Jeeps with VERY minor damage get salvaged, and Jeeps with VERY extensive damage not get salvaged. Insurance companies don't know squat about what it costs to fix damage to a vehicle. Frame damage is easy to fix (that of course is a relative statement) and can be done by any competent body shop with a frame machine.
