    it was just bolted on (actually, in the pic not all the bolts are even in) and its now done properly since I used it to winch my truck into the driveway during a storm.

    I did not prep as good as I wanted to but it was a rainy week and one of the last ones I had free to get it done before the cold weather hit. Going to be redoing it this summer and doing it right.

    Where did you happen to buy your rims? You can PM me if its easier for you.

    bump for a nice small build. I vote for the LTB's being brutal on the road too. I've got 34x10.5 LTB's on my TJ and it's got horrible road manners.

    I got them through national. Paid a little bit of a premium on them but also got them through work on a no interest payment plan along with the LTBs. If I remember right they were $190-200 a rim plus a little extra to get them shipped quicker.

    Thanks for the speedy reply on the rims. Could you PM me a model number? I'm looking at running my 34" LTB's on beadlocks, just haven't decided if I want the Staun internal, or the good old fashioned beadlock rims.

    I'm not sure off the model number offhand but they are the allied rock-a-thon bead locks.

    Hey I noticed your Princess Auto Towbar tabs... Was wonder if they were welded at all or just connected using a Gr8 Bolt?

    Grade 8 bolt but the bar is being modified so it will hook up to the clevis mounts on my new bumper.

    No complaints with the bar though, have used it quite a few times and no problems.

    Posser shot


    Got a bit more work done.
    Rear fenders trimmed up, inner fenders removed, and ammo can mounted. Not bad clearance for 33s and no lift.





    Heres a few more pics of the not so fun stuff.


    apparently the hole is on the top and bottom... cant be good



    295,000km and still on the original shocks (yes they will be getting replaced soon)

    good work bro - simple, to the point, readily enjoyable. everything jeeps should be.

    i've had some other ideas for this summer, but with the lift sitting in the garage, a line of credit and your posts - i may just end up beating the p!ss outta my dd instead.

    this is a thread i'll be watching, thanks for sharing
    one of these days...

    thanks, when I started the build I had a line of credit (and am now saving for a house) but I wanted to get out wheeling with something I wasn't scared to beat and dent up. I think its pretty much done for now. I just want to fix up the rust, swap in some stock shackles to lower it, trim the front a bit more and maybe swap in some 4 cylinder axles with 4:10s. It continues to surprise me what it can do as its still pretty much stock aside from some tires, bead locks, and a winch.

    Got a bit more done, picked up some new shocks for the front so they dont limit me (should have 3" of uptravel and 9" of down travel). Back is next on the block and going into the shop next week for custom shock mounts on the axle and frame.

    Also went to the US and picked up a portable compressor, 3 ton floor jack and a few other things.
