      Quadratec: Sell your XJ and buy a JK. It's just as cool, but your wife will leave.

      Little work I did on a friend on mines Jeep truck yesterday. we bobbed the ass about 20 inches and I put the bed ends back on to make it looked a little more factory, it still needs a little more welding but other wise came out real nice, now on to the pics

      all the extra metal that was cut off



      mocked up and getting ready to weld in.

      right before I left for the night, He still needs to finish up fabing the rear bumper and put a notch in the tail gate.

      Sorry man but it's not my spot to sell out online. Hope you understand.

      On topic here's a bumper I helped a buddy throw together last night, the Manche is almost done.

      indeed i understand but just to clarify i wasnt looking for the exact location just a general area. My rig hasnt moved an inch in almost 2 years I would post it up but its not a jeep so not really worth posting in this thread. To mention something on topic though mr brother in law and i have been doing a frame off build on his cj7 which is now almost done. Its got about 7 inchs of lift, 35's, detroit lockers front and rear, stock carb'd straight six with a 4 speed, warn lock outs, some nice bucket seats, along with other odds and ends. Cant wait to finish his cj along with my turban (suburban). I have some xj's i will throw up here once i transfer the pictures to the computer




      First one i dont recall the specs on but the second one is an 87 xj with 4 inch left, 34 tsl's (old style tread thats discontinued) welded spider gear in the rear, arb front bumper with winch, custom made rear bumper out of diamond plate, and some other bs stuff. I've seen that guy burried deep under some mud(mud on the hood deep) multiple times and he gets out on his own every time as well. His jeeps got about 350k miles on its 4th 4.0l under his ownership and second ax15 trans.

      Has it's own internal ecosystem from years of leaking top, but is mysteriously rust free.
      1 owner, stolen & recovered, then disregarded.
      Has some things that I can only figure out as meth head damage, i.e., someone went berserker on the cowl panel, someone with no clue how to remove a wiper arm.
      Battery's dead, PO said it hasn't run in 2 years, nothing wrong, just neglect.
      I haven't even ever heard it run, I'll be tinkering for a bit on drying it out, but once the batterys charged I'm just gonna turn the key & see what happens.

      Plans? I dunno. Get it runnin, take it off some sweet jumps...

      dubrally: i like your style and where you going with this. Also this might be a stupid question but how does one plan on opening the tailgate with that vise mounted on the bumper?

      Well the truck is actually a friend of mines, I know he's planning on lifting it more, not sure what he's going to use. so far the plan for now on the outside is to start an exo-cage for it. the tailgate actually doesn't open and not because of the vise, when we bobbed the a$$ ( there's more pictures on post 1302 of this page of the actual work I did on it) I had to notch the tailgate around the frame to make it fit, if you look closer on those pics you'll see that the tailgate actually sit on the frame in the factory mounting post on the bed. its more to make it look factory and to have an end to the bed, he can still remove it if he needs to.

      Spun the 4 banger with no plugs, it groaned but turned, threw a new set in, cranked it over and it fired up!
      But it got a new battery, new cowl panel, new wiper assembly, pulled out the alarm system, and I got an old soft top from a buddy.
      Then I built a somewhat rude front bumper, since the old one was destroyed.
      This one's got a 1/4" plate for the front.
