I was rear ended by the moving truck when we 1st got here to england. It put some dents and chipped some paint on my tailgate. I took the payout and bought rims and tires . The chipped paint started to rust over time. I was more worried about that than having dents. So i decided to sand and respray my tailgate black.

I hafta say this is my best pray job yet. U cant even tell its spray paint. I sanded the rough edges, 2 coats of primer, 3 coats of semi gloss black, and 4 coats of clear. I used a heat gun very lightly on the coats of primer and black.

Went out for a looong ride today with some buddies here. No damage. Lots of mud. Got to use my winch a couple times. Had to pull that rubicon out of the soupy mud and then myself.

Two things you need. 1 - a GoPro, 2 - a YouTube channel. Pics look great. I need a Jeep.

Decided to make a real bumper to support my future plans for a tire carrier. Got a 6x3ft 1/8" steel sheet and went to work. Took a whole day total. Came out really sturdy. I was looking to kind of replicate the look of my front bumper but keep it simple. All i had to work with was a mig,a grinder,sawzall,and a c clamp.
