**OFFICIAL MJ'S EARNING THEIR KEEP THREAD**

Recommended Posts

 

I don't think that thing would last more than one load of a big rock load Bob. Man I hauled tons and tons of what they call "river rock" down here when we were building rock walls and walkways down the the lake. What a butt-busting job. :ack: The MT springs earned their keep on that job. :cheers:

Need more info on it!

 

It's stuffed with a Warn 9,000 lb winch and the lights are a glass cover fitted into a rubber casing – never need to worry about them rusting! Same ones you see on most semi trucks… Their wired to come on when in reverse or by the switch.

I agree, who made that bumper?

 

Edit: sorry for all the hi jacking.

 

I wish i could take the credit, but can't... Chris Hoover @ Strongweld.com (Lakewood, WA) does quality work! He's going to be making me some rock rails soon. I'll be sure to post them on my build thread...

 

 

:cheers:

My MJ did a little more work yesterday,

 

brought home the best $20 find of the week. jamminz.gif

($20.50 to be exact :yes: )

 

 

 

They're the Teves calipers (instead of the good Akebono's, but I think I can live with them for the $$ ;) )

holy hell, what junkyard are you going to?!

 

I get ripped for 100-130 for a front axle around here, and I'm only 45 minutes west!

Does it count if I have no pics??? All the hard work my MJ has done, I took no pics of. It has hauled at least 15-20 loads of firewood. Five full loads of bark mulch I got free from work. At least 5 loads of scrap metal...axles, engine etc. It regularly hauls my lawnmower(s) 4-5 x a week. And the PO, a very good friend used it for LOTS of scrap metal runs. The little baby has hauled TONS & TONS ! It is a 2.5l 5spd with 105,000 on the clock. It's the toughest little truck Iv'e ever owend.

She did a little work for me today. We had a 120' tall pine start leaning precariously close to a road on the front part of the farm. So, she had to go:

The tree was leaning pretty bad on a 10% or so slope. The only way I could fell the pine was between two trees, downhill.

Unfortunately, that's where the brambles were. So, I bucked as much as I could then tied the upper half of it to the MJ and pulled it out of the thickets.

Here is about half of it ready to be unloaded.
