Welding on the Jeep.....

I am planning on doing a little welding on the frame of the Jeep. Is there anything special I need to do to keep from damaging the electrical system or is it not a problem? I just want to make sure I don't screw anything up. Thanks

I would just disconnect the ground from the battery to be on the safe side.

Yeah disconnect the ground.
But i have welded on my jeep a few times without disconnecting anything and have never had a problem.
But to be safe...

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

Lol, I wish.....actually it's something totally stupid and very temporary.

I am panning on rigging something up similar to Teraflex's removable mudflaps. I am going to weld the pieces on to the frame that will hold the rods. I will have one in front and behind each wheel. I am using some thin sheet to cover the front and back of each tire so I can pass WV's stupid state inspection. The tires have to be covered from 15 degrees above center in front to 15 degrees above center in the back. The tires also can't stick out past the fenders which mine do a little bit. Basically I am making crappy fenders out of thin sheeting that I can just slide in and pin once a year and as soon as inspection is over I pull the pins and remove them. I made a little picture to show what they require to be covered. I am just welding the bases to the frame with the plans of having to do this for a while. =)
