This guy on Instagram has been a great inspiration and has answered all of my stupid questions. He is a million dollar resource on this project.

Last night I ordered a ton of goodies on Labor Day sales.

Artec low profile truss, Tracy bar mount and weld on high steer arms.

Iíll fix up the little ding dongs on the Durango and drive it around for a while while I work on the axles. I figure Iíll build up at least the outsides of the axles before I attempt a swap so I can have the least down time.

Good score on a 5.9L Durango. Be sure to do the intake plenum updated gasket if it hasn't been done already.

Yes. Good idea. I always meant to do that on my 5.9L Ram, but never did.

Ok, then you are fairly familiar with the 5.9 then. Put 100K on a 95 2500. Good truck, but with 3.55's and 285 tires it was horrible pulling a trailer.

Yup. Had that 5.9L Ram for 9 years until it got totaled. Made many a sand mountain trip with my trailer. I put 4:10s in mine, so it wasnít so bad.

Is the Durango getting it's own build thread somewhere? If so I'd like to follow along. Looks like a cool project

Hello boys!

My Amazon listings are live!

Presenting our welding cube trainer kits. The kits consist of 6 - 2" steel squares that can be welded into a cube (or any other shape you want).

We offer them in 3/16" and 11 ga. (1/8") thickness. Both kits are made in American with American steel.

11 ga. Kit

3/16" Kit

I know I shouldn't be conducting vendor activities with my account here at JF, but these kits and this business are intertwined with my jeep. Because of the work I've done on my jeep, I've been able to get to this point.
Also, If I had access to kits like these, I would've used them to better the work I did on my jeep. The money gained from these products will partially go into my Jeep as well, so I consider this jeep related and pertinent to this thread.

If anyone on here buys one, please leave us a 100% honest review!

Enjoy!

Dam that is a slick idea, if I ever buy a welder I will definitely get one of your kits.

Big things going on:

Got my Artec order in the mail!

Started a YouTube video series on the Alpine Lizard, and I already have video recorded for the Dreadnought video series!

And my Amazon products are in stock and prime eligible! We also launched our pay per click ad campaign. Should be reeling in sales very soon.

Iíll take that! Not bad for 11ga open corner. I basically had the welder bottomed out to get the bead to stack.

Alpine Lizard 002 and 003 are on on YouTube. These are much more exciting than my first video. Iím getting much better at using my camera and editing software.
