The Bantams were made in both forms with and without a tailgate. The fenders are not necessarily stock so it could be a Bantam M100. Either way they are nearly identical in size and the photo was used to show that size which is small.

Well, ah, not only doesn't it have a tailgate, it doesn't have any bed at all. Just a narrow frame, fenders, axles and old narrow tires that are more cracks than rubber.
What do you usually do with those tires anyway? Can you get different tires on there, or are they some unusual size? I didn't look last time I was there.

Today I went to the scrap steel yard and bought enough steel for two rear bumpers, and one front bumper. I am aiming for something like Poison Spyder Customs Rock Brawler JK bumper. Only, different. You know. In other words, it will look like it's going to look like, and it can't look like anything else.

Minus the tabs,and the holes for lights. And the spider. And the stinger. Ok, so it will be still steel. It's got that going for it. And mine is way, way rustier. And I am still learning to weld. But, at $0.35 per pound, it's not too expensive. I think. I was able to buy 166 inches of 3/16 wall 2x4 tube, and a bunch of scraps that will be frame tie ins, mounts, half of the steel for the front bumper, and some stuff will be left over.
I am hoping that the second rear bumper I am going to make will pay for the other two.

Very cool! It gets me thinking. Anyone have any ideas on where to get a cheap tube bender? The HF one that is cheapo is just for pipe, but there are mixed reviews saying you can't make one of them work.

if you search there are plans online for making your own bender that uses dies from another company.

Saw that. Dunno if it would save a dramatic amount of $$$. The dyes seem to be the most cash of anything anyway...

I have a tube bender (the 90* model) from these guys http://www.midamericanonline.com/tubing_benders.html that I paid $750 for with 4 dies. I then added an air over hydraulic foot pump to make it work for another $100. I think my friends were building those self made ones for about $600.

Out of curiosity.....Yeah, it's a pretty vague question, but, how much does a good beater/ project wrangler go for?

U-Joints

I bought some front U-joints for my CJ7 from NAPA.

They don't have grease fittings. There is the boss for the fitting but no zerk.

I ordered the HD and paid forty something for them.

Is this something new?

It's bullshit isn't it?

Sweet! I love wheeling in the winter. I am considering running a lead to connect my heated riding gear to the Jeep so I can ride topless and doorless all winter. Also it will be fun to commute topless in Feb. just for kicks.
