The MJ will be getting a full roll cage made from 1.75x.120 DOM.  I have 8.5 sticks, with access to 2-3 more.  In total I will have access to ~240' of DOM.  The MJ is getting a MAJOR chop-job (cab removal/boatsides) and will be re-worked from the radiator back.  At this point in time it is completely unsafe to wheel (hard), because if it rolls, the passengers WILL be seriously injured/killed.  Both a-pillars are bent, and the cab is beginning to crush in.  When I sit in it normally, my shoulder/elbow stick out the side.  I also have a pair of suspension seats that I am putting in.  4 point harnesses are going in too.  

When the MJ is done, it will be lower, safer, more stable, and more fun.  And it will have a winch.




So don't ridicule me yet!!  ::)

You should have seen the looks I was getting at the Fall Crawl when Brad & Kazu realized I had no winch.  I think they held back  ;D

Tim, can't wait  :saw:

technically, all the solid work sketches are just doddles  on the bent and twisted sheet metal on the MJ
