Awesome job! Looking great. I’ve noticed that a lot of the metal seemed to be left unpainted. Is rust not an issue because the environment is mostly dry? Or is it because those are all such thick metal parts that rust won’t be an issue?

I hope that two-by-four doesn't snap when you're standing underneath that two ton piece of machinery. Do me a favor construct a t Pole Nail another 2 by 4 up against it so it's almost like an I-beam. You will only need one with about 6 nails to hold it together. They do that in carpentry quite a bit when they need to hold something up. Make sure you use Tenpenny nails at least.

Matt's Off Road Recovery
Many people mistakenly call the Matts off road recovery phone number. While that phone number is monitored pretty closely, it’s the windertowing phone number that is monitored 24 hours by my dispatcher. Winder Towing = towing, roadside assistance, off-road rescues. Matts off road recovery = RUvid company.

Monkeys uncle Lizzie! Wear long sleeves when welding. I know it’s hot, you could get a thin long sleeve shirt. You could wet it and wring it out real good for extra cooling.

OK here goes, get ready to bash me folks lol Love watching your videos. Very entertaining and very cool but man you guys worry me with eye protection or I should say without eye protection. :) You can’t shut your eyes and block out Welding arc. I’m an old welder who’s seen this from people most of my life. You’re doing way more damage to your eyes than you know. Had a friend lose an eye because he refused to wear safety glasses. Using a ballpeen and BAM! Too late. Eye Gone! Very sad thing to see happen. 👍🏻 Take care.

The Death Wobble Channel
There are so many long short and medium-length four-link kit for the front end of a Jeep Cherokee you should have went with one of those example Rusty's has a 4-link long arm that goes to the crossmember they're not the only one either steering ---the stuff pretty important sometimes things break when you make it yourself I know someone whose mom died from an accident like that on the highway from homemade suspension be safe whatever you're doing
The Death Wobble Channel
@Matt's Off Road Recovery i dunno, i know a thing or two about a thing or two. ya might be re inventing the wheel for no real gain. not a lot of room beneath a cherokee to change much, 4 short arm, 3 or 4 mid arm or 4 long. as for the surface, tires and air pressure are where that can be adjusted. the axle and coils care not what they ride over . the shocks slow the movement of the springs, the springs set the height. besides paddles or smoothies what can anyone do to tune for sand? tires for the terrain and suspension to keep nice ride and tires on the ground....no way to tune that.
Matt's Off Road Recovery
There are lots of them. And none of them are tuned for sand.

Tip for welding in a gap with wire feed, u can weld for a sec stop and weld onto ur spot again quick, stop, weld, stop and it will build out to fill a gap. Just quik hits with the welder wait a sec between each one, anyways my dads a welder and taught me that bridge technique to bridge a gap, when i was welding chevy 1500 plow mounts to my f-150. Still works fine been two winters. Haha anyways rudy prolly knows this already. Play around with it, was pretty cool once i figured the trick out!

First off, I still say Rudy is working to change careers. Hollywood isn't to far away. We watch Lizzy working so hard taking tires off, welding, driving stuck vehicles and who does Matt look at when Jamie's bringing lunch and needs the bench cleaned off? Kid needs a raise. Will have to go back to Utah to see you all in one place? Looked like some big celebrations on the fourth. You signing that check, made feel proud I'm a big fan. Thank you, your family, friends and employees for doing what you do so good. Hope to be able to shake all your hands someday. Take care and again, Thank you all.
