Re: Body Armor

very nice!

is that first pic what you had before ?

you should take the rectangular support tubes going the frame and cut them off at an angle and weld a cap over them so they dont fill with crud and rust out on you!

Re: Body Armor

Yeah that is what I did about 2 years ago.
I dont know what I was thinking...

It's a good thing I have Pat & Neil(Jeepgod & Marine02) around to point out my mistakes and get me in the right direction. I couldnt have done any of this without their help.

I will be cutting those down tomorrow just like you said.
I just ran out of blades and had to get some more.

Re: Body Armor

Looks good, are you going to reroute your exhaust? or are they the protection for the body armor??? Looks good and a good design.
Keep up the fab. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yourock.gif[/img]

Re: Body Armor

I actually like the look of the exaust placement.
If I am ever off roading this thing and am ripping off the pipes, I may have a few other problems to deal with.

But it's always fun to see if you can do just that.

Re: Body Armor

Yup, could you imagine hitting anything at a speed above 5 MPH with the 1st one.

I originally thought it would be a step. But I was shown the error of my ways.

Laugh hysterically (while rolling on the floor) & berate you about it for months/years *maybe*, but I can't see them "pointing" either...
