    Default Long day at USMCHarleyJeepGuy's for cage install

    Well, I bought a cage that Jeff spotted on another forum. Good job brother. I woke up at 0500 in DE and drove down to Frederick MD to pick up. That was f'ed up, so ol' boy just drove it the 106 miles to Jeff's in F-berg VA. Would've taken more pics, but I had one day to do this.

    Cleaning it up:



    Starting:



    The knucklehead who "restored" the jeep herculined stripped torx back into place. Nothing flap-wheels couldn't take care of:



    Everything dumped out and ready to go:



    Trying to back the jeep up with a loose seat:



    Clean:



    We put it in, and backed it back out to adjust some stuff. Jeff almost broke his arm in the process:



    Jeff grinding down some nasty remnants of harness tabs:



    We went in overdrive to finish this sucker off. We finally got it done:

    The only thing holding me up on his steep driveway was me clutching the steering wheel. Good thing it held.

    Maybe you should change your name to IWANTTOROLL

    Judging by the last photo you finished under cover of darkness?

    Looks good, clean install, who ever built must have done it before for it to fit that well.
