After finishing his Green build thread and about 1/3 through the Red one's build, I'm not sure if I'd be honored or embarrassed to have look at my pile. @spankrjs has built some impressive rigs that I hope to check out in person one day.Oh boy, Raymond got himself a new playmate!
It's good to know I have a local scrambler expert near by if the need arises
You can’t have him, even if there was a slight chance he wanted to try out his Plow Boy up there !Y'all need to catch up for a drink and/or some grub. I wish ol' Ray lived that close to me... (up here and not down there in the utter weather hellscape that is the south )
Renee and I really enjoyed this story and continuing the tradition of great Saturday morning threads over coffee. She wants that Bronco in front of the rooftop taco and tequila bar or that beautiful yellow Renegade since that's my nickname for her from the day we met. I like the profile pic in front of the beach because I wear the same look on my face when I drive mine. Beautiful rig and thanks for sharing your journey.
Thanks! The Bronco is pretty nice and still has some rare factory parts on it according to my neighbor, the underhood toolbox and center front seat so your able to seat 3 across in the front row. I considered an early Bronco but the prices drove me to other options.X2 on that Bronco when they are done well. They and CJs are just off the charts in the cool factor
They are unfortunately, I added some red loctite the last time time I put them on. On the to-do list is measure for new bolts at each end. Do you recommend nyloc nuts or something else?I hope those are mechanical lock nuts on the steering heims and not a flat washer and lock washer...
Same here,,,I also run both the mount and the brace on both of my CJ’s.
I prefer the mechanical lock nuts.They are unfortunately, I added some red loctite the last time time I put them on. On the to-do list is measure for new bolts at each end. Do you recommend nyloc nuts or something else?
I was going to ask that very question.I prefer the mechanical lock nuts.
I'm with this. I went through the trouble of cutting and rewelding a cross brace setup for my RHD after doing the MORE HD relocation mount (which I had to have welded together for RHD, they were nice enough to send me a kit unassembled when I asked.)Even with the HD steering box mounts I feel the cross over brace is needed, especially with large tires and/or off road driving. They really keep the box from wanting to deflect under load. I like the M.O.R.E. braces, have one on my red Scrambler.
