  1. This is one of my favorites from the Curse a couple years ago - Jeff is about to flop the Pirate Ship and Scott grabbed his sill to keep him from going over. It actually saved him, he was right on the balance point.

I also welded the back wheel well portion, but I don't have any real pictures of that. 20150823_170416 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr Yes, this took many many layers of bondo and metric **** loads of sanding to get even close to okay! 20150826_210808 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr Primed: 20150829_162641 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr Final product: 20150831_163613 by Mitch Parsons, on Flickr

  7. Well it’s been a while since I’ve been around here. Finally got a working rig again. I never liked red phuckin’ Jeeps, but one managed to find its way to my house. I may have helped guide it here… Damn, I have missed wheeling

  8. Iv been gearing up a tow truck, for on the road tows/ recovery . Been a dream for years and is almost finished. Hopefully it will be insured by mid next week. It has NO connection or reference to my day job, for those that know what my day job is. Anyway, here is what I've been investing all my money and time into. It's almost finished, few little details to iron out. Chassis is F-Superduty (F450) and wrecker gear is Challenger 4800 twin line with wheelift. Also equipped with dollies for those AWD/4x4 vehicles or excessively low vehicles. Here is the truck, it has super low kms, and has never been worked as a commerical unit. (The gear is in like new condition) It has a neat history of being used in Montreal Grand Prix races for recovering the F-1 race cars in the 1990's. Still working out some details. But it is a huge step to have the unit up and running for the road. Now to get Mrs. Powerram trained up to run it haha, she has ran it in the yard some lol

  10. Here's hoping these will hold too. The second front fender is welded up. I screwed up when I first started tacking the skin on, and had to cut it off. Luckily I only had about 5 tacks done. I forgot to put the brace in place, which helps set where the skin needs to go. I was off about an 1/8", which I could have worked with, but figured it was better to start over and do it right. Their plasma cutter must have shifted somehow when this cut was made, and I didn't notice it until I got to that spot to weld. Here they are together. I'm not sure if I'll have time to get this one prepped and primed before we leave on Friday or not.

  11. Installed a different set of tires and rims with more friendly backspacing on the new to me rig today. Here is how it sits now, and tomorrow will be tearing into the rear end and dialing a few things in. Should be ready for Sat.

  14. Today I made a set of bar pin eliminators, put the JK front shocks in, took both front coil spring isolators out and replaced them with the 2" coil spacers that were in there before. It's now sitting at 3" over stock in the front, and the rake is now gone.

  17. Tonight I picked up a Firestick, cable and mount, and got the antenna installed. I haven't pulled my CB from the other Jeep yet, so I still have that to install. Not sure where I'm going to mount it, but I might go with the Rugged Ridge dash mount. I also did the locker mod, but just did the one where you can engage in any transfer case setting, but has to be below 10 mph. I can't see that being a problem, but if it is, I'll just tap the other wire into it.

  18. Reinstalled the Bronco brakes ...the right way round this time. Fitted the '94 GMC brake lines. Installed the track bar and mount....I think this track bar is going to the just a touch too long. Also, the drag link might be too long. It's 1 inch solid steel....might be an easy sleeve? For simplicity it would be really nice for it all to just fit - I guess there's really only one way for find out

  19. Made it back into the garage to button up some of the 'easy' stuff....radius arms, shock mounts etc......of course the easy stuff became a pain in the *** as I had to tap out all of the holes. I also made sure every bolt would come back out with a liberal application of anti seize LOL I just need to find (or make) some lower shock bushings as the XJ shocks that came with this 4 inch lift kit came with a different style mount than the Bronco. I'll also need to get the brake lines too. Now just 8 bolts and she'll be attached to the Xterra LOL

  21. Yours is definitely 'Built', not 'Bought' Jay. It is easy for some of us to buy upgrade parts for common rigs, but you're building yours by hand Jay. My hat is off to you!

  26. Got a lead on some axle shafts from Ken @ RadCo in Westville. He's found 3 of the 4 shafts in Edmonton, and I'm waiting on a call back from him for the 4th......fingers crossed Washed, scraped & wire-brushed the housing of rust and oil, and gave it a coat of rust paint.Need to do the same to the steering knuckles next

  28. Whilst on a work trip to Orlando, I took the opportunity to get an OEM 25072 spindle tool from Auto Zone - Tracey & the kids got flips flops & candy, I get tools LOL. I was holding off buying the parts to get the axle fixed up until I got a set of radius arms sourced, since the C mounts on my axle are cast, which makes things a little awkward for making up custom brackets. DuffTuff in the US sells a really nice extended set with caps for $1000+ which isn't in my budget. I came home from my trip to some good news about a set of OEM radius arms for sale. The seller was having trouble removing the 36 year old bolts.....well he did it!! :) Now I've got myself a $40 set of stock radius arms and mounting brackets :) Depending on condition, I'll probably just use them stock, and maybe extend them at some point. Now to tear into that broken hub.....

  30. Jay, you should be proud! Take away the winch, (and eventually snorkel), and the Lokka, and any lift and approach angle mods, and you would have had Very Much Harder time in there. You have built up a nice truck at a relatively low cost, great driving skills, and not 'skeered' to wrench on it. I hope the club helped in this transformation!

  38. Just had the H2 in for service with Double Z. New pitman arm, idler arm, idler arm bracket, inner / outer tie rods on both sides, new passenger side axle, and new rotors / pads up front. Also had them align the truck as it was in dire need. Truck feels brand new, steering wheel points straight, I'm very happy... and broke.

  39. Make for sure Jay. Maybe we could try it together. We can talk at the meeting tonight. So my lift kit took forever to get here. It was supposed to arrive last wednesday... But it didn't. It arrived on Thursday! Whats that in your hand Mr Postman?!? A gift from America? yes Please! The dis-assembly began. Parts look good! Went together pretty easy! New rubber would really finish the look nicely. These old 30.5" coopers would be ok for winter....but thats about it. What if we tried to fit these 33.5" Toyo Open Country M/T! Some small modifications required. I'm starting to get excited. Oh yes! Wow

  40. Had some fun with a few rattle cans.... First off, my boy wanted to paint his BMX frame...so being a dutiful dad, we stripped it and painted it a colour of his choice. The steel rims that came with my latest aquisition were original and very rusty, so a pack of cards and a can of Krylon Non-Skid Coating fixed that :-D

  42. I've been keeping my eye on a new cabinet since we moved into this house. Home Depot has this one that they get in randomly and only once or twice a year. I don't think it ever goes on sale - it's just a "special order" product that you can get while it lasts. Husky 52-inch W 20-inch D 15-Drawer Tool Storage Chest and Cabinet in Textured Black | The Home Depot Canada I was really looking for like a 46" box, but this Husky one was cheaper and had all the features I wanted - soft close drawers and power in the box. Now my overflowing 24" box I had since my first vehicle can be repurposed ... for something.

  43. Tireman got the 2 tires I ordered in today, so I had to throw them on! They ride really really nice, and don't seem to be too hard on the motor. I won't be running these on the street....well maybe for a few days I've gotta do some rear mudguard trimming and make sure there's no bodywork interference issues on flex before I take it out

  45. I know just the place to do that, supposedly built for Jeeps, but Subaru's use it during their drive event at 'Saltscapes'. Ask me how I know! I took a Forester across it, and you end up with two opposing wheels IN THE AIR. And you can rock the vehicle by shifting your weight! And then they tell you to open the doors and they close again! Can't say they would close on the Suburban. Or even my Rogue. Then the Forester X-Drive kicks in and shudders the heck out of it (ABS shuts down the spinning wheels) and she forges ahead. This was the track we didn't get to run after helping out at the Fall RV show but I know all the twists and turns now...........
