Nice work! I want a shop where I can pull mine apart and work on it when I feel like it!

I haven't posted in a long time but that doesn't mean I haven't been working on Desert Rat. I finished up on the rear tub metal replacement then dropped it off at the bodyshop for some metal messaging. This thing was so bad I just didn't have the time or patience to get it laser straight. I also did some body work on the doors and had to weld up a ton of holes that were not supposed to be there. I just this yesterday sand blasted, straightened and filled the left step just need to paint black. I decided to have a local body shop do the final paint as I don't want to bring on too much heat from my home owners association. :lol:

I saw you used 343219 KYB shocks on all 4 corners. Are you happy with the fitment? Would they work with a 2" lift?

That is a good question. I used the KYB's as they are pretty much the same length and size as the originals. Not sure if they would have enough travel for a 2" lift.

Pretty cool find. I was in Huntington beach going to a car show on the pier. I was looking for a parking spot a couple blocks up from the beach. I made a turn to pull onto a spot and there in front of me was this Patrol. A little worse for wear but hopefully it will get restored one day.

That one is "leave a note on the window" worthy. It needs to be put to good use! Maybe it is already, hope so.

Finally getting some paint on Desert rat. Much more to go but got the underside of the fenders, floor, bed and full firewall and engine compartment sides. I also found if you order a hood welting kit for a military jeep it makes perfect bed pad replacements.

I think it's complete BS that you SoCal guys can work on your projects through the summer.... :D

Mine's sitting just out there, covered in spiderwebs and dust, waiting for October

Remember- I'm going to need one of those hoods back (whichever one you don't end up using 8-) )
