  • underhood welders

    I have a buddy that has a nice 4x4 jeep cherokee that he would like to accessorize with all the off road goodies. He would like an underhood welder for trail repairs. I was wondering if anyone on here had used any that are on the market. Horror stories, advise, opions, anything someone should or might want to know.

    The premier power welder is a nice unit. I have used and seen this welder
    used for numerous types of back country fixes. In fact, one time someone
    in our trail group completely broke their Dana 44 front axle right in half. Snapped to axle tube right off the center housing. We were able to get
    it back together and welded to make the 50 mile trek out of the back-country.
    Anyway, this is a nice unit look them up at www.premierpowerwelder.com
    The ones we are running are all on jeep type vechicles. There are other
    types of under the hood welders, but I am only fimialar with this one.

      1 thing to remember is that these welders are for emergency use, and may not be appropriate for criticle welding.

          Dyn 88 is right, these are units for emergency situations. We have only
          used these type of welders to lip vechicles out of the back country. Once
          back to the shop all broken parts are replaced. We never leave these repairs
          as the final fix.

            I was looking in to the mobi-arc to put on my truck. The middle 200A version. www.mobi-arc.com Also there is the little wire feed out there, I can't remember what it is called though, let me do some checking around.
