Your fab skills are seriously amazing but PLEASE don’t use the same color wire for multiple wires and say β€œit’s all getting wrapped up in the loom anyways”. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been tracing electrical issues on a customers bike and come upon 10 red wires someone ran for everything or the like. I usually end up just replacing the harness rather than deal with it... also stagger the cuts but use the same length wire and then you don’t end up with a β€œbundle” of solders in one spot. Do it to know it’s done correctly, even if only YOU know it...

I can envision Papa Dar driving his Jeep down the trail or over rocks in Ocean Blue. I have a bright white 2016 JKU Willys and that color would be my second choice.

Have you ever used hot melt glue after soldering? I always melt the glue onto the wires .. that way, when I heat the heat shrink, it creates a watertight seal

I d love watching your channel along with Matt. Just some ideas for ya' all, A welding lens fr the camera will save the life of the camera. Welding arc not just bad on your eyes in person but also on TV and camera lens. My only experience is building police, Fire, Sheriff vehicles that cost up to a few million $.

Come on guys. Wow all the wrong ways to solder wires and using cheap tape. 3M 33 tape will stay on for years. Old wire loom, cheaper to replace with heat resistant loom.

dale polmanter 10 days ago
Hi Paul my name is Dale Polmanter I'm from Canada Edmonton Alberta to be exact I watch a lot of your fabrication shows and I'm very interested in what you do so I have a question but in order for the question to be answered I would like you and Matt both to be present an both to give an answer on this question seems usable fabricators and here's my question I have a 2002 Dodge Durango 5.9 r/t and it has a normal typical Dodge Durango's front end underneath it I'm not very happy with it I'm not very happy with the way that it works so I would like you both to give me an idea of what front end to put underneath the Dodge Durango with a set of 391 gear ratios front and rear and yes I have already considered having the lockers put into the outer hubs and yes I'm very much considering the heim joints and link suspensions that I have seen use put together quite a few times as of now within your fabrications so im very comfortable in putting that together myself and just so that you have the full perspective of where I'm heading with this I would like to eventually at some point take the 5.9 out of at and put in a hemi

I'm the Steve who sent an email to Michelle asking for your address to send the Whoppers to awhile ago......I was very surprised to hear you say my name on camera when you got them.....lol....then Michelle mentioned she likes M&Ms so I immediately ordered them.....but that seller didn't offer a gift note option to include my name......not that I need the credit....I'm just glad it got to you.....but Zimmer or whoever must be the seller on Amazon.....but I am the one who sent you the M&Ms because you missed out when I sent the Whoppers.....😁 Anyways......I hope the guys left you some Michelle.
