Only on PBB
Wet muddy rope wears out faster.
Uv helps kill it too

Yep. The grit that ends up In between the rope fibers wears it out from the inside out.

stick with rope and just replace it every now and then depending on use

And use the old rope to make things like soft shackles, axle tie downs, and hand pull lines.

Been doing a ton of work, some things just take time though.......

Winch cradle done on the 2 seater. Just barely clears the ram truss at full stuff.




Hood still needs to come forward a hair, grill hoop, and a removeable bumper in case he drives by braille.



Got the first windshield started... Should look pretty decent once its finished out.

You need to lay off the white stuff, or just finish what you start


The two holes in the front of the winch tray. Are they speed holes or will they house turn signals?

Speed holes. Didnt need to be solid plate, and just seemed like it needed them

That's full height. It's the chassis that's taller.

Buried behind the grill. Won't even see them.

Do you have any pictures of how you have your caliper brackets set up?

Ford 60 or Chevy 60? (can PM me if you want...dont need to clutter the thread)

Also - try the E pads. They were recommended by a few folks for crawling/trail riding. With how easy they are to swap out, it wouldnt be crazy to have a few different sets anyway in my opinion

Those pockets in the winch tray looks like it would allow you to put the lights in the grille like many of the early model jeeps. I thought it may be a look you were going for.

Anyhoo, carry on.

It took some convincing just to get them to cut the grilll for the winch fairlead to stick it behind the grill......Theyre reading though, so I'm game if they are.

Spidr,
you mentioned Evolution (EMF) earlier in this thread. Wanted to share a picture with you.

This pin has been used and abused for the last 4 years and over 20,000 miles. Other than a shot of grease once in a while they have not been touched.

I think it looks pretty darn good. Old pin on the left and new on the right.
The joint has never needed to be tightened and was still good and tight when I took it apart.

The twins were born pre-mature and were crying out for attention.
Not much to report, they are doing well and should be back on track shortly.
