Howdy from the other coast , are you planning to post on the Canadian :Canadaflag: section as well eh?

I havn't found the canadian section yet

It's just to your left when your looking at the north pole , ends where the sun sets on that other ocean ( also it's in the C.C. Meet 'n Greet ) image_209027.gif :fool: image_209027.gif

Started the rear frame , box work

 

Before pix

 

 

 

I cut out the factory x member , so I could tuck the new tank up nice and high . Its a plastic tank from a 99 XJ

 

Welded in some plates so I would have a good mount for a couple cross members / gas tank mounts . Its 1X2 3/16 wall

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The top of the frame was kinda soft , so out it came

 

 

 

This is what was inside the frame :o

 

 

Welded in some 1/8 X 4 in

 

 

 

Started the main box rails . 2X2 1/8 wall

 

 

 

 

 

 

The risers 1/4 in plate 3 X4 and 2X3 tubing 1/8 wall

 

 

 

 

The 2 cross pieces are going to be the mounts for the roll bar . Its 2X2 1/4 wall , I am gonna gusset it tomorrow

Started the frame werk of the bed . Made it from 1.5 X 1.5 3 /16 . Welded in a piece of 1.5 sc 40 riped length wise for the outer edge

 

 

 

 

 

Shocks are going to mount to this one

 

 

Can't figure out if I want the back of the box tapered , Originally I wanted to tip the outer ends back just a bit , so I could built the bumper right to the box

 

 

 

 

I think i am leaning to just leaving it square or just tipping the corners back 2-3 in

 

Still have to figure that out , mount the gas tank , build the tow tabs and receiver / hitch , rear bumper . I have the roll bar to do and build the sides , But I am in no rush for that

 

 

OHhhhhhhhhhhh and a new to me t case showed up for it too ;D

I like the louvered hood idea and the double rock rails (yours or PO ? ) I see your no stranger to metal fabrication and welding :thumbsup: :popcorn:

I think it would function much better tapered. Plus I think that would probably look pretty good. :thumbsup:

 

Did you use a grinder to split the pipe in half?

Finished the box , and ended up doing it the way I was originally going to

 

Had to add a piece in

 

 

 

 

The new angle for the corners

 

 

 

 

 

LOL the new rear bumper ::)

 

 

Gas tank install , its from a 99 XJ :D

 

Making the cradle

 

 

Test fitting the straps

 

 

Gussets

 

 

Various pieces , custom made for the tank install

 

 

Upper cradle done

 

 

 

Trying to figure out the location of the tank

 

 

 

 

 

We had to drop it down 1.25 in to for the filler hoses to clear between the deck and the frame

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now the tank straps

 

Made these up for the straps . Adjuster is 3/8 treaded rod , welded to a piece of pipe , with 2 nuts on either side , to weld to the cross members , with the same to weld the strap to for the other side

 

 

Tara made up the angles for the straps to be welded to ,and the adjuster to go through

 

 

Bent the straps to fit the basic shape of the bottom of the tank , and welded everything in place

 

 

 

 

 

LOL put the ratchet strap on the wrong side of the cross member ...

 

Its now installed 8-) Its tucked up nice and high

 

 

Next is the bumper/ end of the box

Thanks

 

I lovered the hood and made the rock rails .

 

Both the rock rails and the sides of the bed have pipe that have been cut in half using a grinder

 

 

And to answer and older question , I am not sure if I am going to build tube fenders for the front yet or not

Nice job. That takes a steady hand. I like to think I'm pretty good with a grinder, but I'd probably go cross eyed attempting to do that. :thumbsup:
