    Weld VS braze?

    So I’m designing a roof rack for my TJ. It will be aluminum and only used for a few lights and maybe a shovel and axe. Would brazing hold up to this? I don’t have access to everything needed to weld aluminum, but the stuff needed to braze is easily gotten. Any input would be great!

    Brake problem

    I need a sanity check, I know it’s debatable if I am sane, to see if I’m thinking down the right path. The brakes on the p/s rear have become hot twice since June. When it first happened, the 15th or 16th of June, I let it sit for a couple hours. I had to go somewhere else and constantly...

    Fog light recommendations

    I’m looking into replacing my fog lights with a pair of 6” LED light bars. I was looking at the RC ones, but am unsure. Any recommendations? This isn’t going to be done in the very near future, but I want to swap the factory fogs out as one got broken. Thanks for the help!

    The Black Moon

    So I’m finally going to start working on my TJ so I figured I should start a build thread. I am having a new cat welded in today, and have ordered the ZJ swap for the steering. I took the milk jugs off a couple days after buying it. I ripped up one of the flairs a few years ago, so I just pulled...

    Truck Trail Ride

    I just wanted to throw it out that myself and a few other Jeeps are going to hit some truck trails out by Ramona for a nice easy ride on the 30th. The plan is to hit Orosco Truck Trail and then possibly Sasquatch Trail up to the top of Black Mountain. It will be mostly easy with some moderate...

    Winch Recommendations

    I was wondering if y’all have any input on winches (I’m sure there is). I’m likely going to get a Badland 9500 or 12k one to have just in case until I can afford to get a good one. I was looking at the Warn 9.5 anyone have another recommendation or input on this decision? The badlands would in...

    Build plans input

    I was hoping to get any input y’all had on my plans for my rubi. I’m planning on doing a small 2-2.5” lift for the next few years while I upgrade the rest of the suspension. At this height I will do bumpers, winch, flat front fenders, rockers, 33s, a 1” MML, and a 1.25” BL. I’ll also be making...

    Pinyon Mountain

    I was wondering if anyone has run Pinyon Mountain lately? I am hoping to run it around the end of April, beginning of May. I am doing it in my TJ Rubi all stock, save for no flairs. Any input/tips would be welcome! If anyone wants to join that’s welcome also.
