Hello from Spring

Just found the site. I live in Spring (North Houston) and just completed my 4th Jeep.

I was out at Spring over Thanksgiving. I was playing around in the park.

I haven't even gotten it off the trailer from Nocona yet. Hopefully today! Then I have to figure out how I am going to fix it.

I seriously laughed when I saw the tires in the living room. Your wife must be a saint.

Where do you get your steel and tube?

I got the tubing from a place out near Katy. I can't remember the name off hand. The other steel I get in Conroe. Not the cheapest, but the closest.

Bent was nice enough to let me borrow his brand new tube bender for 6 months!!!! I owe him big time.

If you notice, the picture shows me putting together a unpainted wheel. Which means, I had to break it down and do it again. That means I did that five time in the living room. She thought it was kind of funny.

Now I just have to get it running again. I broke it this past weekend.

They are Stazworks. I think I paid about $1300 for the set unpainted. They are a great wheel, but take forever to get. I had them powdercoated.

If you go out 105 east through downtown, it is on the left. I think it is called Conroe Mill. The sales guys aren't the most helpful, but it is the closest.

I am always up to go wheeling (or grabbing a ), I just have to get it running again. I broke the upper trilink this past weekend and I am in the process of redesigning it. It will be running in another week or so.

Yes, that is where I got all of the DOM. There is a $300 min there. I found another place in NW Houston, but they are about 20% higher with no min.
