@Awesome

metalshaper isn’t fixing stuff up. He’s precisely duplicating everything to original specs down to the exact rivet head and moon phase. Fantastic work!

He’s a quality restorer. You’re not doing that.

Please keep the bed! 🙂
Just a little crude hammering and straightening would be awesome just to see it still look like a amc jeep pickup. If you were close by I’d even help. Given time you might even find a tailgate

We-ellll......

I have bigger priorities at the moment. I tried to get the engine to turn over today. I can only get it to turn halfway around. I'm going to get it rolling so I can get it into the shop and drop the oil pan to see if there are any piston parts laying in there.

I’m gonna have fun watching this. Really.
I’m excited for you.

Thinking about your impromptu and appropriately unplanned project 🙂 highlights how I need to really buckle down and buy empty property or something with a garage.
Me being able to self-repair is an important budget item in my economic context. Perhaps more important to my personal happiness and mental health.

This is the first time in my married life where I've had enough room, a shop, the tools, and a couple hundred extra dollars every month to play around with. I also have more time since this is the first time that I work a fairly normal job.

It was a good day to...…

Play on toys and bag a couple boars. The larger one is ~350# Going to have the butcher make LOTs of jalapeno cheddar brats.

Some of the stuff in that article is true.

Much of it isn’t; jeep never had a ladder frame for example.

The 60 minutes segment also went after the bronco and eventually bronco II iirc

The question asked about why AMC went for a visual change and not anything of substance is probably valid; and the answer is that they did some essential changes that they could .2 and satisfy the Ralph Nader’s of the world and just carried on. Thankfully

That's a big boar!

I don't know if you're into trophies, but here is something I made from the last big boar I took. Yours looks like it might have the ivory to do similar.

You guys eat those? Gross. They're worse than rats here. I shoot as many as I can. I haven't bagged any as big as Joe's, but my buddy did with my rifle.

Nice trophy setup there, Bpounds.

Eating a big boar like that isn't easy. Making sausage, especially something with a lot of spices, is about the only way I would do it.

But the sows, and even boars up to the 200# range, can be outstanding on the table. It's just pork after all. Like any game it can depend on what they have been eating. I usually keep the loins and sometimes roasts. Most of it I have ground with beef suet added, for tacos and chili. You would not be able to tell the difference from good ground beef when used that way.

Out here in CA, most of our wild pigs come from the same stock as domestic pigs, but have gone feral generations ago. With just a little bit of wild genetics mixed in.

Don't grab the roll bar. Ever. Especially if you're about to roll over.
Your friend will spend the next two days shuttling your campers and trailers to his house as doctors try to sew your hand back together.
Yeah, I have a yard full of trailers right now.

Yikes. I know somebody that did that same thing many many moons ago. Shattered his arm in many places.

If you cannot fix it with a hammer then it has to be an electrical problem.
