Hi Tek, been working @ our little store 6 days a week and enjoying the dependability in my truck that I worked so hard for. I went to 33's though and was having a problem with clearance on the latch lever for the spare. So welded a threaded chrome rod extension and put an old 10 ball on it. Worked o...

Re: Mig Gas

I have a nice 12 yr old Century 110 v gassless. I don't have power to my little workshop so I run a cord from the back of the house where the hot tub used to be. Its a 12 guage HD cord but is 50' long. Will a shorter cord produce less voltage drop and therefore better penetration on my welds? Tried....

Safari style rack

Hi all, just finished yet another fun project. I built a Camel Trophy type safari rack for my bii. Used all kinds of bits & prices of this and that but think it came together pretty well. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/06/14/hyqa6eva.jpg http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/06/14/ura2y2av.jpg

My new pre runner.

Hi all. I just finished fabbing up my new pre-runner. I used moly tubing and the whole project only weighed in at 30 lbs. The slogan I live by is " With a 2.8, gotta watch the weight" http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/04/18/aqedazet.jpg [attachment=-1]uploadfromtaptalk1397810522687.jpg[/attachm...

Re: What did you do with your Bronco II today?

Hi all, been working on changing the interior color from faded red to semi-gloss black. Will be going with a new paint scheme in the spring. I am also designing an exhaust system that's never been done as far as I know. Have all the new parts just finalizing the design in my head. I'll keep ya posted.
