    Cordless impact wrench

    I was wondering if anyone has experience with cordless impact wrenches. I use my cordless drill too much with sockets - I have a 5th wheel without electric jacks - I made a handle with a 3/4" bolt on the end, then use my cordless to turn it up or down - its too much for the drill. Dewalt has a...

    Cage Question

    I am building this cage. I still plan on adding spreaders - I assume 2 spaced about 8" apart running from the A Pillar to the B Pillar. (Then back to the corners from B-C) My head ends up a little close, so I was wondering about putting a bend in the spreaders so they go up an inch or two...

    CJ Stretch

    I decided to make room for a 5th passenger in my Jeep. I added 10 inches to the frame and body. I got the idea how to do it from Jay5.9L on this board. I started on it around Thanksgiving, but haven’t been able to work on it consistently. My wheelbase is 105” now. I started out with the...

    Lockright Help

    I've got a lockrite in a CJ d30. I has been making some noise, so I took the cover off and see that the Pinion Shaft is moving around. Apparently the roll pin fell out, and that caused the pinion shaft to move around. One end of the pinion shaft has been running into the pinion gear as it...

    Building a Tow Dolly

    Anyone know any tips on building a tow dolly. I have an old trailer axle, and think I could build one quite inexpensively. I want to flat tow my jeep behind a 5th wheel, but am nervous about braking something, and not being able to get it home. With a tow dolly, I could back it on, or pull it...

    Steel Bender in stock Cherokee?

    I've got a friend that has a cherokee - totally stock except for a 2" budget lift. I told him I would take him on a ride this weekend. Could he get through Steel Bender without damaging his XJ? He doesn't have tow hooks, and would probably not like any body damage. There will be plenty of...

    Aux truck bed fuel tank

    I am considering getting one for a '03 doge short bed diesel. Don't want to spend a ton which probably means I would have to get an equipment one, and pump it into the truck. I could get by with around 50 gal. I found this one for $320.00 (a little bigger than I need) Norther Tool...
