Idk if your still trying to get those pesky bolts out, but you could try Kroil. We use it in the Aircraft industry for that kind of stuff with good results. Maybe worth a shot.
Thanks, Scott! Dean (chino63) has offered to help me out so I'm likely going to send him the one stubborn wheel to see if he can work his magic. The screw heads are now too stripped out to try to remove conventionally. :(

Good point, Cory! Yeah, these are plastic wheels (obviously), but have no weight in them whatsoever. It's a perfect storm for a top heavy rig for sure!

And if anyone is bored, sgtsteve put together a brief compilation slo-mo video of the LJ from yesterday.

I'm curious if anyone knows who owns this rig these days?

I'm not sure who owns this rig these days, but if you have any interest, I'd like to buy it back.

I know, right? Unfortunately at the time I sold, the crawler scene here in Austin was all but dead and I also needed the cash for other stuff. Nonetheless, the seller's remorse is strong with this one.

Good news! I located the current owner via a friend's help and I secured a deal. The LJ is coming back home! I'm super excited to have it back. Looks like it's been run pretty hard, though, so I'll have some work ahead of me to get it how I want. Nonetheless, I can't wait to get it back!

Looks like the main components are still there, as well as all my fab work, but it's looking a bit rough at the moment. The body will definitely need some TLC.

Glad you found it, sorry that shipping is worse on a rig than using it. It looks like the previous owner didnt let get dusty on the shelf...

Wow, I remember that one! I found it to be the most appealing green Jeep around. Nice to see it's back where it should be. Looking forward to seeing it back together.

Thanks for the kind words, fellas. I'm super bummed about the damage, but it will be risen from the ashes. Maybe I should name it Phoenix??
