Wrong lugnuts for spare wheel = OOPS!




Reptillikus jumped out of a moving truck to tell me I lost a ball joint, "luckily it was just my wheel studs. :doh0715:


Ox had (2) in his truck which broke earlier in the day, we took it apart while he went and got them.

Everybody I wheel with loves this thing....I didn't have a whole lot of money at the time because I was in school but, I had to take out a loan to buy tools for school to I added an extra $650 to what i need so i could buy it

I guess you could classify it as a tool:goodfinge :goodfinge


This is how I mounted it......It's a 12" wide piece of chanel Iron with the backside chanel cut out to fit the square tubing in and then welded all the way around


It's not a warn or anything.... but it works great for pulling out stuck chevys:chili:

I'm new here on FSB and I am a subscriber to Bronco Driver magazine, but I am confused on who to vote for on FOTM. You guys say Todd has done all of this backyard fabbin' I would just like to know what he has done, because his looks like the most stock, except for the front bumper.

Front bumper
Rear bumper
skid plate
roof rack
Corbeau seats
Hacked up fenders
2 inch lift up front

and a list of broken stock parts to go with some wheeling abuse

Alright all this talk about fab here's some pics of my work

Stock front bumper mounts....
This one broke

This one got messed up

Back side of my bumper, you can see it's bent 3/16" with 5x5 box beam inside it. The box beam is 3/8" thick and this is how the bumper mounts

And a little bit of over kill for mounts, I decided to go with 10 bolts to hold the bumper on, 3 bolts per side on the angle bracket at the back of the bumper and 2 more into the bottom of the bumper

Bottom bolts and a close up of the tow points


Both frame rails


I'm confident the bumper is permanent now. Best part is the mounts were perfect when I was finished. I had to pound the bumper on with a hammer it fit so tight and it was completely held in place by friction with no bolts in it. My bolt holes were spot on and each of the 10 bolts lined up perfect. I'll probably have frame damage if I hit something

Best way to learn is to practice. I learned building my bumpers and doing some smaller projects. I'm hoping to get some practice TIG welding in the next couple weeks but so far I've only mig welded. I save every scrap of metal and whenever I see free metal I take it. I know it makes my dad mad but he's impressed when I actually use the shit I bring home. My skid plate was just a piece of 6" c-channel and I got bored one day and started welding drilling and cutting.



A comparison of mine to stock... 15lbs stock mines 30lbs

I still need to add a slant to the front of it but I should have time when I do the ZF swap. I'l probably remake the whole thing to include the tranny cross member and ZF mount, that would be sweet.

I wish I had a pic of stock but this is how mine looks
