and pulling the top down when its -30 outside http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/09/17/uba6agar.jpg
I decided that the jeep needs quick disco so I made some but did not take picture. I where very surprised by the stock flex disconnectedhttp://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/09/17/hutu9u6a.jpg
then like an idiot I tried to pass in a lot too much snow http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/09/17/7ytyhanu.jpg

It should be solid ahahah

NEVER buy a f@&$!$& harbor freight pipe bender this is with sand torch heated those dom tube are solid as hell ( in the back ground we see that I were obliged to weld the tube together

Looking good. Nice fab work! Makes me wish I had a plasma table to make this stuff easier. Good color choice too.

thanks I love your build man you got some awesome skills . I don't have a plasma table the plate are laser cut by a company that can cut any steel plate that you can imagine and on top of that the price off steel is ridiculous. but I will have one in a couple of month 😀

then I say to myself why not be really unique by placing switch next to the traction control switch http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/09/18/ty2azamu.jpg I wont lie I do NOT recommend anybody to do this because first its really hard and time consuming to do this secone the result look good but the switch arent so accessible with a manual and third at night you are trying to find the switch like an idiot and you accidentally blind people behind you with your back up light. I will probably made an overhead console soon so those switch will get out of here .
this is what the switch a wired to a home made spod the max amp that can pass there is 120 amp but before I try this max load I think I will need to put one or tow fan in this box XD
I hate carpet so I take it off sand down the tub and bed lined it whit monsta liner. awesome product but you beed to roll it THICK if you want it to protect your jeep floor for a long time
if it werent of the cops I would drive with this every day !
tow 100w kc long range to compensate for the stock candle
first real scratch thats what happen when you wheel at night in tight trail....
skids and bumper gussets for the winch
the winch an we see the "spod" under the hood
this summer I started to build my rock crawling trail because here everybody do mud but I hate mud . with a tractor and an excavator its not so long that we have a nice trail ahahahah
a friend buy himself a jeep pretty much identical to mine red 2 door jk soft top but with the 17" wheel
I made a laser cut tramp stamp but forgot to ask it in 1/8 got it in 3/16 so I gave it to my friend
then I started to draw my rear bumper
so i'm now here schools started a lot less time will be put on the jeep but as much as i can !
after school drilled the exhaust skid and welded a bracket on it http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/09/18/4a3atypy.jpg
what a nice view!

Looks awesome! It's cool how you're building everything yourself. I wish I knew how to use a CAD program an draw stuff up on the computer haha.
