I like it; I’m in the middle of something similar (Design wise).

Is it stock scrambler wheel base and shortened frame in the concept drawing?

I got out the only two bolts I had to drill.



The passenger side frame rail was leaning in a little at the bottom,I knew the heavy frame on my trailer would come in handy,a little back yard engineering,a couple of tie down straps,and a couple of come alongs along with a couple of home made bolt on "equalizers " 30 seconds latter it was straight again,this was much easier than when we did Nick's frame.It's within a 1/8" of being square also,so now I just have to finish some rust repair,clean and paint it.

Well after many hours of cutting,fitting,welding,grinding,sanding,and cleaning,the frame is finally ready.








Great job on the welding Ted, it almost looks new!:bow: And putting the "TDK" in the front crossmember will make everyone think it is an aftermarket frame.:shrug: What does that piece of paper on the front say?:rolleyes:

I think that someone is getting paid too much.......

Maybe it was an early present from the wife. Kind of hard to sneak that under the tree.

You mean that "TDK" isn't Ted's initials? :evil: I thought he was just signing his work.:rotfl:

TDK = Ted Doesn't Karaoke that's all I could think of on short notice,I'm sure Big Walton can think of something better,to tie it in with Jeeps.
I don't know what that paper says.

I'm not getting paid too much,I managed to sell off enough Jeep parts,to more than cover the frame.:p I'd put it under the tree if I though I could get it in the house.:D

"TDK" stands for "Ted Doesn't Know" and is the answer to the question "Which vehicle is going to get kicked out of his two car garage to make room for the CJ18a sanddragger, the Exhibit or Mary's car?". He is trying to decide which is worse, getting the Exhibit dirty or sleeping in the garage!
