Re: The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

I am in the same boat right now, plated most of the uniframe, sending the rig off for cage work in the next week, and once I get it back I gotta put a floor in.
with all the rust I have, it should make for some interesting splatter during the welding process, or should I say interesting welding during the splatter process.

looking forward to seeing how you finish this, as I will be following suit soon enough.

Re: The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

damn, are you inside my head?
same plan as I started last weekend.

are you planning on having the floor pan above the trans/t-case removable?

and what are your plans for cleaning up inside the the rails? I figured I'd wire wheel them and rattle can them and hope for the best.

there will be a piece above the trans and tcase that is removable so i can pull the shifter off and acsess the top 2 tcase bolts, and i have no plan for the frame rails at the moment

Re: The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

lack of updates was due to a nice trip to Florida, Texas and Louisiana to fistit lots-family, anyways, Floor subframe is now 95% done, tomorow i will add some pieces down the middle to tie em all together(cept the shifter ones ill just have a pices on the side) weekend will include 2x4 crossmember to replace the one under the rear seat or i just might make one from the stick of 2x2 i got left, and ill ass shock mounts and coil retiners for the frt 60 then all it will need is gears lockers and shafts installed
