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.

Awesome 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.

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.

fishadventure 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

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.

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 Iíd 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 have seen videos from that guy that does the Jeep panel shaping. He spends far more time on a single piece of metal than I am willing to spend on one.

I might try to take the dent out of the passenger fender, but the rest of the cab dents will probably stay in place. I'm not restoring this. It's a beater and it will stay that way. I'm nearly sold on the idea of replacing the bed with a flatbed, since it will be much easier to tie a rollcage into, and because the bed is the worst part of the body. There's at least one hole in the bed (I can't see most of it because it's full of junk), and the top of the bed rail is just as beat up as the bottom edges. And I'd have to find a tailgate, which would probably be pretty difficult.

I challenge you to learn about metal shaping and dent removal by unstretching metal. You seriously can make a lot of those panels better by doing it. Some folks can make them back to perfect and use not real body filler so to speak. It is an art and some of it is pretty simple once you get the concept. There are lots of good you tube videos on it and a great forum called http://allmetalshaping.com/ A guy to look for on the web who is the master is Peter Tommasini. This guy is has got some serious skills. Another guy that makes a lot of Jeep panels is called metalshaper on You tube IIRC. He does a lot of CJ2A type of stuff, Willies, etc.

One of the guys that worked for the same company as me does all the owners restoration work (which the owner is listed in Forbes as having more money than Donald Trump and a car collection that is very private and I have seen a lot of it and it exceeds Jay Lenos) does metal shaping. He makes very complex restoration parts like quarter panels, hoods, etc by hand for some really exotic old cars..... The point of me saying this is his daughter got interested in it and makes a lot of artsy things out of steel. Fish, flowers, all sorts of things. She is very gifted and has not only learned but excelled at something that has become a lost art.

This is the crap that slowed my 94 project way down. LOL. The tub on it is very rusty. The more I dig the worse it gets. The floorboards and sides of the body were obvious. Some stuff is finishing, some is fabricating from the get go. My torque boxes as they are called on TJ did not look to bad. But I got some weird bug up my butt one day that I was better off to remove them and make new. That is when I found how bad the captured nut thingies for the seat track hold down bolts were. I promise you a lot of YJ seat hold downs are unsafe once I opened it up. Somebody is going to send me a link again about https://www.classicent.com/ also known as classic enterprises. I am fully aware of them. There is conflicting info about the quality of their parts. The sum of the parts I need from them exceeds what I am willing to spend on my 94 as it will go right back out into the salt belt and see the worst of winter days. I can pound out a part with some creativity and maybe making some forms in the wood shop, etc. for far less dollars than I can buy their part for. Time is money but hobbies, enjoyment, pride in making or fabricating something myself and staying out of trouble is priceless.
