I like it! :mrgreen:  They should market that setup!

Guys, I don't have a problem with someone doing stuff like this if they have the knowledge and the right tools.

What I have a problem with is backyard wannabes with crappy chinesium tools/welders trying to do what I know Tom and a few others have the skills to do properly.  Steering components and other high reliability parts on ANY vehicle should be left to the professionals.  There are major liability concerns as well. 

It's the hacks around here that scare me..... :rolleyes:

A friend of mine gave his TJ to two guys wanting to use it for mocking up a stronger and modified frame.  Imagine the money that would come in if you could fab up TJ frames on a regular basis . Either way , they were gung-ho at first and then were harder to find , on the phone or in person . Two yrs. this went on and we (a bunch)  of guys with trailers and trucks went and rescued what was left of his TJ. Now in his yard as a pile-o Jeep parts.  Not everyone has the capability , tools , knowledge or funding to do something like this.  Beware guys , They are out there.   FjR68

They convinced him after they used his for dimensions , his would be free. Once you have the jig or measurements , I would only figure your next step would be to hire people and never look back.  There are two Father/Son teams I know of , take orders and deposits . Drive to Texas and buy frames only and bring them back.  1k/2k gets you a non corrosive frame to start with. Its really not a bad thing if you own a TJ , just a big PITA . Cant believe Chrysler wasnt held accountable  like Toyota was with their truck frames.   FjR68
