    maybe a stupid question but what's the reason behind the D rings being on different angles?

    The d-rings being on different angles will allow one to be used for a sideways pull if needed without stressing the mount too much...at least that was the discussion, between the owner of the rig and the master welder on the job, at the time of installation.




    As for me supervising...like Jimmie said...just taking some time to watch the master welder do his thing...never seen stick welding before and the machine he was using is way more powerful than anything I had seen before...when you are 5 feet away from the welding with your back to it and the entire wall in front of you suddenly turns white and your back is suddenly HOT, you tend to take notice...

    like mentioned the tab that is parallel to the ground is more for a sideways pull. its much stronger in that instance. I dont plan on using the Tabs for much pulling thats what the hitch point is for. The tabs are more for good strong anchor points.

    ^ HAHAHAHA....I found some nice hiding spots in the shade for the various beverages I consumed...I think the best one was on the cowl between the windshield and the flipped up hood...that even kept them safe from the sparks of grinding/welding getting in to the can!!!

    OK update.....

    its rolling.

    but I got somethig weird going on with the steerig...

    I installed a 95 astro van steering box. made all the hook-ups. filled the fluids and when I fired up the jeep it moaned like .... well it moaned. that eventually went away but now the steering turns on its own...

    Just standing there if you turn the wheel in one direction or the other it will just keep going.... weirdest thing I've ever seen. 95% sure its hooked up right. someone have a pic for me? any one know what causes this.

    took it for a drive tonight... got her up to 80 no wobble.... thats good.... rides real smooth. but I can feel the sterring box fighting me.

    Other than that.... right now it sits in the garage topless... doors on and drivers seat in.

    I opted not to cut the passenger side for a week or two. make it a weekend project.

    All I can say is WOW what a busy week. thanks for the help gents.

    competed this week:

    drivers side boatside : this included two body mounts and the entire Drivers side floor. this took way longer than I figured it would

    front shackle reversal : done in total 3 days to complete this...

    Painting of the various areas on the jeep.

    Pics to follow

    Kind of sucks when you are taking metal out and the more you take out the more you have to take out...I guess it's a YJ thing...well at least you know to expect the worst on the other side even though it looks to be in decent shape...let me know when you are planning the other side and I will see what I can do to help by standing around supervising...LOL...

    ^ you got that right.... well at least I know what I'm into next side. I think It will go smoother.

    it also looks like my issue with the steering is in the gear box. I have spoken to a couple of mechanics anow and the consensus is that the control valve is not woking correctly. so there is another one on order for me to pick up tomorrow.

    question....

    where can I get the little U-joints to rebuild my steering shaft? I called the steelership and they only sell the entire part for 400$+. WTF....

    anyone have ideas here?

    Pics are still coming.

    Once you start cutting into the body the time starts adding up...im on my 3rd month of a few weeks of body work...

    Better to take your time and do it right then be patching up your patches in a few years.

    If you need any help with the other side let me know

    Jak was by last night and I was able to check out the work.

    AWESOME, really like the new stance and I'm definitely into the boatsides.

    I think I should have gone in that direction...next year maybe.

    GREAT WORK gents.
