Re: The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

decided to do shackle relocation, a friend had some pieces he made up but nevery used em, so i used em as i needed, everything is .25 plate, i also plated the old shackle boxes and plug welded it just for kicks. big reason for doing the relocation is i has limited down travel, like 2-3" and inverted shackles was garenteed, now i can easily max out the 12" shocks, also picked up some .75" rustys shackles from the NAC classifieds










hoping this week to pick up the steel to finish up rear floors aswell as get fuel cell mount welded in and get pieces to install the exhaust

Re: The Stupidist Jeep on the Planet

changed plans for the exhaust, instead of the stupid 3" muffler and tail pipes i backed things down to 2.5" and also used a cherry bomb turbo that fairly compact its somthing like 7"x13" had one on my last jeep and it sounded good



plan this evening is to go pick up sheetmetal to finish up floors tomorow
