Re: YJ conversion Photos

very very good craftmanship! did you fab the front end piece with the reciever hitch on it?? man I would put a type of plate over the gap in the front with your frame extension and mount a winch!

Damn, that looks good! Like the front end! Don't know about you, but I'd put a winch plate on that bumper and mount a nice Warn! Lets see more pic's when you get it on the trail! Later

Re: YJ conversion Photos

The idea is to have the receiver up front to put the winch. I want to be able to get myself out of anything even if I'm alone!!! So the winch will be mobile front and rear.
I'll be covering the gap with a plate to make it stronger for side pulls. I've heard of guys bending the frame rails because of leverage. Don't want that to happen do we......?
I'll be making a bush guard to go ontop as well to go from headlight to headlight.

Re: YJ conversion Photos

Just came in from installing the perches and I DIDN"T take any pictures!!!
Sorry, I was having a hard time getting the one on the passenger side to work. It's a little ways up the pumpkin so I had to trim and trim and trim...you get the point. I made them out of 2x2x .25 tubing 6" long and cut at 30* on the ends. I only made them for 5" lift since I'll only be running 33's. I'll take some picture of the front perches installed though.......

Tat
I did take pictures of the perches!!!
It was real hot here and I don't handle heat very well...so my brain slows down...
They are not welded in the pix and they'l be caped on the ends.
