It’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog about Jeep life. Life has been keeping me busy… with that said.. a friend of mine is a going to have his shop students work on Pumpkin. He’s a teacher and thinks it would be a great project for the kids to get dirty with. I can’t agree more! It will be fun for them. So soon updates will be coming with new photos of the progress, more info about the students and such.

Well, as you can see, Pumpkin has a matching set of shoes now. The extra set of Moab wheels I have, I’m using 2 for this. The others I’ll be using for something else later on. I was able to score a set of MTR 31’s for $10 and got them mounted for free! Guess when you spend enough money at the tire store they will do favors for you 🙂

Well, after taking almost 3 yrs off this project, I’ve gotten back to it.

Ordered the 3500# axle, 60″WMS to WMS only to find that the Moab wheels won’t work without modification. So, spares will work for the time being. I’ll get back to the Moabs when the solution in my head works.  :satansmoking: Also waiting on a custom built axle tie plate. Since trailer axles are usually bolted to 1 3/4″ or 2″ springs, there is nothing out there for this application when using the factory rear springs. They happen to be 2 1/2″ wide. I found a nice little mom and pop shop close to home that will make it for me. Should be ready in a day or so.
