  1. @21mejia25 Since the first episode! We have been getting buy on borrowed tools, but it’s finally nice to have our own air tools thanks to my partnership with Sears.

  2. 4:13 Santa clause laugh!! :) What led me to this video is a 1968 cj5 for sale here for about 3500 dollars. Thinking about buying it.. runs and drives- no lift or anything though. Mostly stock I think.. I’m just a highschool jeep-lover though, trying to get into working on vehicles. :) Any tips? good deal, bad deal?

  3. I am very impressed with the video. Informative, good video and audio quality and great editing. One of the best Jeep how-to videos I have ever seen. And I have seen a lot!

  6. WD40?! Dude, where’s the torch, the hammer, the PB BLASTER? WD40 is a good around the house libricant/solvent but not near the best for loosening 43 year old stubborn, rusted old bolts. Other than that, I am really enjoying this show.

  7. @stusvend Thanks for watching, and the comment. We do have some PB Blaster now but you know what? We’ve had great success with WD40 too.

  8. @motorztv I understand what you’re saying and absolutely no disrespect intended but this is sponsored by Sears and so you need to sell yourself. For liability reasons you’re not going to advocate torch use and you’re not going to mention a BFH as who is going to go to Sears just buy a hammer? Not saying there isn’t a use for an air impact wrench in tearing down an old jeep but a can of PB Blaster and a manual wrench gets you as far or farther.

  11. @motorztv WD-40 is good for water proofing and lubricating, but not for breaking rust free of old bolts. No wonder you broke the head off a bolt on the hood hinge, someplace that isn’t notorious for that much rust. I used to use WD-40 before I knew better and found out that it was mind over matter that had me convinced that it was working. Nowadays I use both it & PB.Still I have my hat off to you for choosing an old jeep to work on! I’m restoring a ’53 3B now and have been through this.

  12. @motorztv Background music is a must to help captivate the attention of the viewer. But the heavy guitar riffs are so over done…. Horsepower TV, Trucks, etc….. I’d recommend changing it up. Be original. Don’t play the same type all the time. You obviously want to appeal to a wide audience.

  14. @motorztv I actually enjoy the heavy guitar rifs. I know it’s overused but when you talk about motors, cars, etc.. that’s the most suitable music. I don’t see HipHop in there, neither techno or dubstep, classic, jazz, blues.. Maybe some bluegrass. In the end rock is the best way to go.

  15. @liquidrum7 Thank you–we agree! We’re looking for more royalty free music we can use for our show so that it’s not always the same. The newer episodes feature some new stuff already.
