Nothing fancy, just a little here and there pix and vids
 Still new to the game and not much to show for, but here it is...
Got it stock, not running with infamous crank pulley shredded keyway. Fixed and got rear spool in...
I'm building it as I go and having fun in between [thumbsup]

Looks like a blast! I love to see the stock(ish) rigs out havin fun.  'Build as you go - as needed' is the best way IMO.
You cain't buy it that way...

Got 6.5 gears, Tcase mount "snatch" , 33" tires and built my own sliders and rear bumper a while back. 

Did some rock crawling at TSF Browns Camp. Much betta! :) Next thing will be YJ springs...

 Looks like a hole that I've seen over in grassy flats 
Never do more than one stupid thing at a time

Had a blast on our last snow trip. Definitely great upgrade!
Poor FJ got stuck on the road, so I made my own road around him  [thumbsup]

Fun times!!  Wish we got good snows here like we used to get.  Seems to come and go.  Bet that big Ford is a beast in the snow.  8)
All I want from tomorrow is to get it better than today.

Claiming you are offended is essentially saying you are incapable of controlling and managing your emotions, so everyone else should do it for you.

Yeah, that ford held its own for sure!
We have to drive out of the city about an hour to the mountains to look for snow. There is plenty there!

Here is a short video I just uploaded

Yes, I got spool in the rear. Not sure if I want to lock the front yet. Probably after 1.6 swap and power steering  ;D

Yeah, you'll want power steering for that.  We're getting ready to do PS on Jenn's new rig.  Gotta get off my lazy bum.  :-X ;D

It is hard to get motivated on bigger projects like that. Once you tear into it, there is no stopping till its done and drivable again!
In a mean time looking for some 35s for snow for better flotation...

Since this is like my build thread, I might as well add a picture of my rear bumper that I built awhile ago.
Harbor Freight bender BTW  ;D

Yep, nice bends. 
 Fill the tube with sand and tamp it down? 
Tough as nails and dang near as smart.

Haha. No sand. I ran a bead of weld alond the sides of the die to make it little taller and tighter around the pipe ( not tube). There is a thread on how to modify hf bender somewhere. I can find it if you guys interested. Also used HF notcher with little modification. Works great now!

Trip to mud bog last weekend, then cleaned undercarriage  yesterday snow wheeling again. Was the only rig making to Elk lake. There was 8 toyotas and Jeeps with us, but nobody could make last quarter mile stretch and kept sinking in 6 foot of snow... Sammi kept going! and I had smallest tires too haha
