Templates...

I am definitely new to 1:1 fabrication on wheeling rigs (I have done lots of Harley/custom fab, custom car stereo type stuff and then mostly RC stuff).

Something I have done for the RC stuff is provide people with templates to fabricate their own stuff for free. I did this in RC to build a library of important parts (3D models). I did this until I had enough knowledge base that I could do my own stuff with less input needed but still provided the templates to whoever wanted them. I don't know how many people fabricate things completely on their own but if there is much interest I would love to volunteer my time.

I am an engineer by day and have access to lots of pretty sweet software and am pretty damn good at using it.

Thing is that I am not sure what exactly I can help with here. Bumper templates, rock rails, etc? The templates can be anything you need. It can be tube patterns or shapes that you trace to weld up bumpers. I don't know, you tell me.

I have always just sent out PDF's that could be plotted yourself. With a bumper template I think you would have to go to something like Kinko's to have it done.

I am dieing to get more involved in the design side of 1:1 Jeep parts. I just need the help on the proper areas to help.

Here is a bunch of the RC Stuff that I do. Much of it is sold through various companies now. Some of which have sold thousands of units. None of this really applies to 1:1 directly but doing the same thing in the 1:1 world that I do in the 1:10 would be great


















Just throwing it out there. If anyone is interested I hope they post.

This weekend I have decided to start modeling the stock frame. The bumper areas are going to be tough (probably not possible this weekend) as I don't have enough tools at my place. I will have to do that over at a buddies. I want to get my rock rails (running boards ) designed and build soon. The wife *****es about not being able to get in and I don't want a bunch of rock chips on my rockers either

That's some really great stuff there. Interesting idea. Is that one a 3d model or an actual picture?

Thats a real pic of my 2.2 comp rig when in construction.

I started to plan my rock rails today, I like the style of the red rock fab steps and thats what I am going after. Have to buy my buddy a dimble die though.

If anyone knows the location of illustrations of the JK chassis (plan and profile views are best) could they point me in that direction.

Here is what I got modeled. Did the basics of the body was all so I can make sure if I don't have clearance issues and can see where my steps will sit.

Starting to think....

I really like the concept behind the Red Rock Fabs bolt on top plate. They use the dimple die effect but I am thinking about just having them waterjet with some other design. Not sure yet.

Good work, very nice indeed.
I do not see the curb (boat shape) in the JK body though. Did you miss that?
If you eventually get the details and measurements on the chassis and body and are able to bring that to the masses,
a lot of people will undoubtedly be very happy and grateful.
The work you do make it much easier to see the actual shape of the JK components.
Please keep up the good work and show us some of it once in a while.

The boat sides are there, you can see the angled part in below the flare in these two shots. The only part of the body that doesn't have accurate details are all of the floor details which don't really have any use to us. If you look under there it would be a nightmare to model

Looking good so far.

I have never measured it myself, but what 2stoned is talking about is the sides of the tub are curved from from to back, not a straight line. At least that's what I've read others say, it makes it a little trickier when forming the tubing for the steps.

Harley what type of stuff do you engineer in your day job. Just curious, I am an engineer at a window and door manufacturer and design machines to build windows. I use Inventor, I see you use Solidworks.

I design fun stuff like traffic signals, signs, and pavement markings

Trust me, nothing as interesting as this stuff.
