i added a little table that swings up on the tail gate.
since that's the chuck wagon end when i'm stopped, it is very handy when cooking.
[Linked Image]
speaking of cooking, i like this--- squab.... mmmmmmm.
[Linked Image]
i have been beating up suzi's rocker panels pretty badly' and the right door was gonna be a problem soon(left side is better- go figure) so i had to cut it out and stick some square tube in there.
bird sh*t some brackets front and rear, braced it to the sill and pan, hammered what i cut off flat and welded that back to seal up the body(underneath).
[Linked Image]

molded the front fender over the tube and fastened it w/a screw.
it works. i saved my patterns and have material to do the driver's side when it needs it.

oh- when i modified the front wheel wells, i was able to fit those plastic well pieces back in - keeps the crap from building up in there.

now you've seen my "shop".

That link is just a part of my signature.

So how did you relocated the winch box under the hood and then the winch controller plugin inside of the cab? Is that hard?

not too hard - mostly just a wireing thing.
the supplied power wireing was long enough to reach the new location, and a mounting bracket wasn't too difficult to figure.
the plug socket was screwed onto the solenoid box cover so i spliced enough cable to it to get it inside.
made a bracket fot the socket out of some sch.80 pvc sheet.
i'll see if i can borrow the wife's camera and get some other pics.

didn't get the camera out yet, but was looking thru my photo album........
this is where i put my "on board air".
[Linked Image] just a harbor freight thing(the expensive one) that has been working much better than the little buzz box it replaced.
now i can fill 2 vehicle's worth of tires without the thermal shutdown. much faster also.
i'd like opinion about this:
[Linked Image]
rear drive shaft at tail of transfer case with static load.
i've been running this way for 3+years and wondering if i should have a spacer?
i have a whip antenna on a ball/spring mount on the left rear fender panel. i made this bracket to hold it when i needed it down.
[Linked Image]
[Linked Image]
cb radio is just stuffed into the dash w/some foam stuff.
suzi came w/a am/fm/cassette thing but no speakers- i threw it away.
[Linked Image]
i have a 2M unit i need to mount somewhere.
notice the thumb throttle?
ok - that's all the pics i have that may be of interest.
i'll see about some more detailed re: the remote winch control, and ..........

i got them from jeff hoepker. i know he sells them on ebay.

nice material. i recommend.

If I was you I would look into a slip yoke eliminator for your rig. That way you won't have to worry about a spacer.

that must be an adjustable length driveshaft arrangement?
i will try and find info- have you experience w/this?
must have to modify t/case output shaft to do this?
i am vaugely looking for a later model transfer case to play with- seems the only way to change my gearing.

i guess i didn't snap any rings when i put the motor back together- i started driving it to work and back. i'm pleased. kinda fun, but certainly not a d/d machine.
putting smog gear on. we'll see how that goes-got an egr on so far- still need a cat. hope i don't smoke the computer when i plug it back in...
real test next month.

It is a t-case tail shaft conversion. The t-case out put yoke slides now, if you convert it then your yoke will stay in one place and the drive shaft slides. My jeep has been converted, I use a double cv drive shaft.

i will consider this. i haven't seen signs of catastrophic failure, but something will need to be done if i do any more suspension work. i will watch for examples this season and do some googleweb.
thanx

"planning" the start of my season next month.
