We cut the rear part of the frame and welded in new frame parts.

When inspecting this TJ we found some extensive rust to the rear of the frame. This required removal of the gas tank and rear bumper so we could repair the frame.

2001 TJ – The jeep has been in a downward spiral for the past few years. It’s back in the shop now for some much needed attention. After the initial inspection we found that the front track bar was toast.  The rotors, calipers and ball joints all need to be replaced.  All of the control arm mounting point bolt holes have to be resized. Over time the hardened bolts have made the bolt holes wider causing the control arms to shift and move.  We can resolve this a number of ways. In this particular situation we are welding 3/8 in washers on the mounting point.  We are also fabricating a new front track bar. We will be adding more pictures as we assess and repair this TJ.

Installing a AMP Research PowerStep system on this JK.  The step bar will retract when the doors close and extend when the doors open. This system also lights up at night.

1983 CJ7 – Raised the fiberglass tub off of the frame and getting ready to do a frame swap. As you can see in the below pictures there some repairs to the body tub we are going to address.  The fiberglass body was not installed correctly which resulted in the current state of the body tub and ultimately costly repairs. We will be posting pictures as we go through the process of some of these repairs.

The body tub on this YJ has seen better days.  We just tore this rig down to its frame. After some frame restoration we will be putting it back together with the red YJ body you see below.
