    Jeep CK-8 Build

    Sorry, been a busy, busy year. No updates as of now. The workload has been so much that the Scrambler hasn't been touched since last year. Every time I think time will be available something comes up. I will update the next time we get to it.

    Lost our Jeep Pup

    I lost my best friend, a black lab mix, after 17 years. It was hard to adjust. We swore we wouldn't have another. 2 weeks to the day of his departure a white coydog (part coyote part dog) started showing up at our place when the pack would come through and leave. I guess they did not welcome her...

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    We've been so busy with stuff this summer and fall that no time had got spent on the build. I did want a break from the everyday headache and get away by working on the mounting of the oil and transmission coolers. Only a couple hours but it was a good change for a bit. It will have a skid plate...

    Newby with pricing question

    When you start with all new parts, it's no problem reaching $100k+.

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    Not a CJ, but a nice 2006 TJ. My wife had mentioned the other day that she wouldn't mind having another blue TJ like I use to have, but an automatic. Well, me being the awesome husband I am, found a clean one 3.5 hours away and had it for her within 48 hours of her making the statement. Then...

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    The transmission cooler (large Griffin) and oil cooler (small Griffin) are going under the bed where the OEM fuel tank would go. I made a frame for them and a couple hinges and welded a piece of channel between the frame rails. It will fold down to access the lines and fan wiring. They will have...

    Jeep CK-8 Build

    I hadn't updated my project for a while because I haven't done anything to it, for a while. Lol, that seems to be the way it goes. I did get my driveshafts made from a highly recommended local shop. I like em. I got my oil and transmission coolers, I believe they should do the job. I worked on...

    My customized M-1102

    Of course, no one wants to travel far without a spare tire. I made a carrier but at 165lbs per tire I hope I never need it. Lol I the time since I did this trailer I've put over 20,000 miles on it. It pulls like a dream. The lights come as 24 volt but I change the bulbs to LED. I also left...

    My customized M-1102

    The tailgate on the 1102 has hitch pins in the latches to hold it shut. I replaced them with locking hitch pins to secure it. The lift gate can not open unless the tailgate is opened first. I sorted through a few different lift struts to find two that would lift it up.

    My customized M-1102

    Some of the pictures don't gave the best lighting. It was before I buikt my shop so yeah, my garage is cluttered. I put lifting points on top to be able to lift it off if I ever needed to, but I acquired a couple more of these trailers after I found out how much I liked them. My selection...

    My customized M-1102

    I have a very good client, who, back in 2014 asked if I would travel to west Texas to do some work for them. They offered to fly me but I required so much equipment that I needed to drive. From WV it's a couple days one way, or a day and a half. I needed a secure, lightweight, enclosed trailer...

    What's on your Work Bench?

    Not a great picture because of lighting and the cab was cluttered. I put together and installed a console for a client/friend and thought it was worth sharing. It gas power points and USB ports, Uniden Hybrid CB with full scanner built in, Kenwood two way, Midland GMRS radio, iPad with wireless...
