  • Why not just weld the diamond shape OVER the weld in the web? Why cut out the diamond shape and then weld a single piece back in?

  • Electrical issues, I recently cut the nose of a 93 ZJ and from the axle back off of a boat trailer. ZJ meet boat trailer. ZJ trailer, meet XJ, your new camping buddy. XJ pulling a ZJ gets tons of looks. And the ZJ is the perfect amount of room for sleeping, removed all the seats, dash, and steering wheel, put a sink in the front left corner where the dash was and 2 propane ' burners about where the drivers seat was. Perfect little camper for me and my lady.

  • Excellent work, you are really good at what you are doing, that climber is not a Jeep anymore, your creation deserves to have proper name for, because its may appear to be a Jeep but its not, it is something special and special things need a special name with special treatment.

  • My dad cut nearly a foot off the step-side of a Dodge Ram and put it on a Power Wagon frame. It was awesome looking after he painted it white. Short & Stocky & BADA$$. Paul, you remind me of him in the fact that you could build anything you set your mind to. Papa Dar's Jeep is gonna be a bada$$ too. By the way,...Papa Dar is suppose to be taking it easy. Looks like he might be over-doing it since he didn't take a nap this time. I'm shaking my forefinger at you Papa Dar!! ;-)

  • Probably don't need to run the sawzall at full speed all of the time. The blueing of the blade means it is getting way too hot.

  • Man that’s gonna look sweet! Well I have more of a mystery problem now I fixed my suspension replaced a bunch of parts but now in 4 wheel drive I have this clunking so I don’t know if it’s the driveshaft or the diff or transfer case or what but I can make it there in 2 wheel drive during some decent weather and my daughter and I are still looking forward to the possibility. Keep up the good videos can’t wait to see this beat done!

  • If you take super light cuts with a sharp tool you can slim down washers on a faceplate on the lathe. Super glue it on there and go to town. Small cuts to avoid a lot of heat. OR just make a new washer from scratch on the lathe.

  • For what ever reason a sawzall heading through a jeep body makes me all wharm an fhuzzy. I just used a sawzall to cut a 1” 316 stainless rod bc I’m a moron. Can’t feel my left hand.

  • I couldn't get a good look, but the tillers for the tie-rod on each side look like they go straight back, i.e. the pivot of the tie-rod is directly behind the ball-joint pivot point. I thought, that in the straight-ahead position, you want the tie-rod pivots outboard (because the tie rod is behind the ball joints) of the ball joint, so there is some Ackerman effect during a turn. Paul knows more about this chit than I ever will, so I'm sure it is done right. What am I missing?

  • Hey Paul, for future reference when you need to remove sound deadening from a chassis. Use dry ice. You just crush it up and spread it over the sound muffling and use a folded up packing blanket to insulate it and direct the heat up and out of the work piece. Then you just chisel it up, EXACTLY LIKE peanut brittle

  • As someone who does welding and fab work professionally, I still cant believe you let people just hang out and watch, that would drive me crazy. I might "accidentally" send some sparks that way. Like i'm sure he's an alright guy, but in half these shots the jeep's owner is practically looking over your shoulder! that doesn't bother you even just a little bit?

  • How do you get insurance on something like this? I mean who checks the work is up to an acceptable standard and is not going to kill someone coming the other way if something breaks? If you are in an accident and the modifications are to blame, what happens?

    Rohan HamerRohan Hamer7 kun oldin
    • @Fab Rats ok, it’s just where I live we wouldn’t be allowed to put something like that on public roads or parks at all unless it was fully engineered. We do have “pre engineered” style kits for upgrades etc, but nothing like cutting a vehicle in half 😀.
