    Hubs/Locking Hubs

    On my drivers side I have blown apart 2 locking hubs since I have putting this axle in. I am hoping the issue is one bolt was missing. The last time if broke 2 other bolts sheered in the hub. I used a ‘Damaged Screw Remover’ to pull out the 2 bolts that sheered. The orginal bolt that was sheered would not come out. I broke apart the handle for the tap using a ‘ bolt remover’ (Second tap handle damaged this week). I ended up Drilling and taping it at 7/16 since the orginal 3/8 would not hold. Upgraded to the Mile Marker Locking hubs from the orginal stock hubs, hopefully the issue is solved.

    Rear Bumper

    Here is the rear bumper with the bumper brackets. Everything is 3/16" steel. 6 x 1/2" bolts hold the brackets to the frame. 10 x 1/2" bolts hold the bumper to the brackets. Everything was stick welded. The ends of the frames are open for cleaning out the frame since that is where my last one rotted away. Still need to drill for one of the bolts in the frame.

    Fixing the Body

    Fixing up the YJ Tub... there was a crack in the floor under the drivers seat. I have cut out a 6"x6" area, welded in a 7/16" thick plate for the bolt (1/4" + 3/16") right to the sub frame. Then fixed the floor with some 16 gauge steel. I have it finished but don't have a picture yet.

    I have also painted the Front fender which are in pretty bad shape...
