    Thank you for your service to Ed & all the veterans. On Nov 11 I lost a good friend who was a Canadian Korean veteran he was severely wounded on the front lines. A US MASH unit saved his life. Integrity, Honour, and Valour are words he lived by. RIP Harold Shinnimin.

    Matt, When things like that happen you have to remember that a genius doesn't make mistakes, they create challenges for themselves. 😁 Great channel, thanks for all the uploads, and thanks for setting a good example of how I think people should behave. :-)

    I saw thatt Suzuki on Fabrats channel earlier today, and I still can't believe the condition that thing is in. That body is pristine, it almost hurts watching the engine getting yanked out.

    Matt, a trick I picked up on welding thread inserts on links is to coat the heck out of the threads in nozzle gel before welding, it keeps the threads from getting "gaulded" from the heat

    Started watching you guys this summer and well let's say I am addicted to your channel. I was in Vegas this past week and almost drove to just say hi/get a tshirt. I think it would be cheaper to buy a tshirt from you guys but think the consensus is you have to "earn" your tshirt. The rental car I had in Vegas definitely would have got me stuck anywhere there was sand. lol! Someday, I will make it out to "earn" my tshirt. Keep up the great content.

    I once treated a guy for corneal burns who had been doing paperwork all day with welding going on behind his back. He was injured by the reflections. Don't underestimate welding flash.

  • CabooseVX9

    Iv seen it in a video but u guys should practice it for if u ever need to do it on a recovery but they used two truck batteries and jumper cables and just a welding stick or rod and the hooked the batteries together and put the weld rod on the to one end of the jumper cables and was welding with it. Pretty much everything u would have on a trail except the welding rods but those r small ish so wouldn’t be hard to find a spot to just have incase

    " Nothin' New " LOL ! ! WOW Lizzy. And she can WELD too!Reverse threads would throw a curve to most people.

  • Mr2greys

    I would have pulled the JJs whendoing the final welding. the inner poly bushing doesnt really like heat. I learnt that when I swapped out my TJs front axle to a HP Dana 30, I did JJs for all joints

  • ryan turner

    Shouldn’t you have put some plug welds in the ends for added strength on the bungs???

    "People think I'm a Jeep expert, but I'm not. I'm an expert on this Jeep!" I totally get that, lol. I know every single surface of my XJ, inside and out, but I couldn't do shit on any other Jeep. Probably find my way around an old TJ, since they're practically the same engine bay.

    As an older person who drops things regularly these days I was told recently that is the first sign of onset dementia Lizzie did get a hat for under the helmet You should always wear one as when it splashes and the hot bits land on your head they burn real nice Plus it keeps your hair clean I change the screen every couple of months when I’m welding a lot Always were a proper welding shire so you don’t get real bad uv burns from the welder

    Nice gear lizzy! And also your subs are getting up there that's awesome for you guys. 🤟

  • Catpurrson3

    It's wonderful to see, over time, how Matt has brought Lizzy along to acquire skills and do things most young women wouldn't even consider. And she excels and not afraid of doing "different/scary" things (e.g., getting into a vehicle that's almost on its side, using a flame thrower). Congrats, Lizzy, on your new kit. Feels awesome, doesn't it? In short: YOU GO GIRL!

    What radiator/size are y’all running on the Morrvair and the Banana? I’m wanting to do what you did with my XJ.

  • Chadwick

    Pro-tip Matt... Use all right handed or left handed joints. You only keep one spare and if something moves it's because it's broken. How often are you really going to be changing toe or caster or in the case of an A-arm suspension, camber? Usually it's a one and done setting after some initial testing. -from a guy who has almost lost a tie rod going way too fast and never wanted to even worry about it again.

    • Chadwick

      Another tip- use a bolt instead of your joints to weld the tube adapters. When you do this pit some nozzle dip (anti-spatter goo) on the bolt.
