  1. So my attention has been drawn back to this forum today and skimming through it really made me miss it. It's a great community. The old R50 is still unchanged, one driveway over at my neighbours. Although he doesn't look after it. It's rusting and just not happy looking But I've had a blast building my Jeep and just wanted to share some photos and also direct your attention to my business: www.overlandlivingoutfitters.com
  2. That has been discussed in great detail if you go back through this thread you will find it.
  3. This!! I had that on mine. Couldn't figure it out until the strut fell out lol
  4. Did you end up putting the front sway bar back in? With the IFS there really is no benefit in removing it. If anything, it should help prevent damage to components that are very sensitive to abuse. The front doesn't do well with flex. Plus I think it will be unsafe on the road, especially on a lifted Pathy. If you ever had to swerve hard to avoid an accident, it's hard to predict that it will handle how it should and who knows what could happen. The rear however can go. I've removed mine permanently and never looked back.
  5. Once he takes it over I will try to convince him to keep the thread up. In the meantime, I'm getting a lot of repair work done to it. Mostly rust repair. My shop won't have time until August, so I'll still have her a little while longer. I've removed the roof rack as I'm planning on using it on my camping trailer and the lights will go on the new rack that's coming for the Jeep. Looks a bit funny now like something's missing, but it does look clean!
  6. Turns out my neighbour will be buying my Pathy. So it will stay in my life, I get to see it and know how it's doing and help him work on it. Couldn't have hoped for a better option.
  7. Well so far there is no "buddy" yet. But once there is, I'll do my best to convince him to keep posting in this thread and document his adventures and changes to the vehicle here. Fingers crossed. My antenna is mounted with a 90 degree antenna swivel mount that's screwed into the trunk opening.
  8. Ah yes, indeed it is a vent. On the trails my muffler got hit and pushed up a bit, causing it to exit right into the bumper and melting a hole into it. I cut the hole out and placed this vent in its place. I figured if it happened again, a vent would let enough air flow through not to melt it again.
  9. Someone's coming to look at it tomorrow. This might be my last day with Cathy
  10. I knew it. But I guess Kyle didn't quite get the tone lol. Maybe if you hadn't sent me a pm the day before I would have been confused by it too lol. Seriously though guys I'm very flattered by all the compliments I got throughout. I'm proud to have been an asset to the community and inspired some folks on here. This is still one of the best/ most fun forums I've been on.
  11. I think that message was supposed to be sarcastic... I hope ?! [emoji52]
  12. No you have to buy the coax cable, antenna and CB separate.
  13. No offence but man you are in my BUILD THREAD!! everything you could possibility want to know is in here! Do your own leg work. Sorry eh!
  14. The bumper stays on. I will likely still lurk around here as its a fun forum with great people. Just won't have a sweet Pathy to show off
  15. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160418/a13c44745627575f9a94fb91efec0381.jpg http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160418/100c2bb1ca948cad18638b61358dc70a.jpg http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160418/d0054991d1da026d9135addc6f8dadc1.jpg http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160418/8a57f900d0e171c28ae65a3a397d5991.jpg http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160418/e16903bdb233e47eea734bfcbd275d12.jpg http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160418/4f822f243eca2fc45de86308d77728a3.jpg THE END
  16. And thus ends the CDN_S4 build thread. Cathy has been all cleaned up, washed, clayed and waxed, vacuumed and emptied out. It is not an easy decision to let her go. I've put so much sweat blood and tears into this and got a lot of pleasure out of it, I've learned a ton of things, it has made me a better backyard wrencher, I've met a lot of great people through it, in person and online, it has taken me to amazing places and it has given me an off-road addiction. Selling it will go one of two ways. Either she stays intact, with EVERYTHING on her as is now, or I'll strip down the roof rack and lights as well as the winch. A quick recap of the journey: SFD
  17. When I installed my SFD the rack and pinion did have to be rotated. Otherwise it binds at the u-joints.
  18. Welcome and good luck with the build. It's a lot of fun! Challenging but fun!
  19. Looking good. Got any plans for a skid plate?
