1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    Congrats, I know you've been looking for a long time.

    IMO the Sport with the max tow is the sweet spot in the current lineup. Very capable to start off, but lets you add your own mods as you go.

    Not my jeep, but you can see what some solid rock rails can do for you.

    You guys and your Jeeps are lucky I really miss mine. Out here Jeeps or any truck is basically usless. I mean there is one or two around but you really cant get anywhere with them.

    Well I'm back up and running. Got all new bearings in the bottom end, new rear main seal and pan gaskets, timing chain and gears, timing cover gaskets and seal, new clutch and a MC2100 carburetor. When all that got done this Jeep got a new rear bumper with a swing out tire carrier IMG_20160409_091048.jpg IMG_20160409_091000.jpg and while I had the welder out Jeep got a new front bumper with a winch and a receiver hitch for a feed broadcaster IMG_20160409_091202.jpg IMG_20160409_091143.jpg

    I had to pass a 416 up a couple of years ago because I just don't have a place to keep one. *sigh*

    I've been looking for a YJ for about 8 months now. This thread sure doesn't make it any easier on a guy being Jeep-less.

    I've been making mods to my '97 TJ since I got it...slow and steady.
    Summer configuration:
    SummerJeep.jpg
    (showing the Rampage frameless soft top with the sides and back off and a tonno cover over the Tuffy Security Box. (held taught with a 'pool noodle' in the center to take up the slack.)

    Winter rig:
    WinterJeep.jpg
    The TJ is the absolute best vehicle I've ever driven in the snow in 4WD with good tyres, but it is the absolute WORST vehicle with low tread or in 2WD.

    I've removed the rear seats and put in a box, lifted the Jeep 1.5", spaced the larger 31" 10.5X15" tyres out so that I can turn to full rack, put wider flares and new mirrors on it as well as shortened the bumpers. I just replaced the rusted through front fenders a few weeks ago. These new ones should last the rest of it's life. I want to replace the wheels with black alloy and to make a 'Viking' style shield with Mjölnir in the center as a rear tyre cover. :)
    20160507gp-80001.jpg 20160507gp-80002.jpg

    I've never been a 'car guy', mostly I've bought used, beat to Hel Subarus and driven them into a pile of rust, but this rig is a true joy to own and drive and I don't think I'll be without a Jeep Wrangler in my life for a long time to come.

    This is an 82 CJ7 that I bought cheap and will be using for plowing driveway. Just put fresh motor in and tons of new parts. Just have a few more things out back to finish.

    We got moved last week and on Saturday morning my wife says 'let's get some sheep, I found some in the trader and we can haul them in the back of my jeep', she has a Patriot btw.

    I said 'gimme an hour'.

    One hour later I was tooling down the highway with the top off towing my modified trailer.

    And we brought her 5 sheep home.

    1985 j10

    0611100757.jpg

    0611100756.jpg

    I was the second owner of this 1985 Jeep J10. 258 I6. 4 speed manual. It was ordered bare bones - did not even have a cutout for a radio or antenna. Story was that the cap had been put on before it left the dealer lot. Had some rust issues in the floor boards and along the bed seams.

    I replaced all of the door and door windows seals. New radiator and hoses. Rebuilt the Carter BBD. Replaced the entire fuel system from the gas cap up to the connector at the carb. Rebuilt the rear brakes from the backplate out. Patched the rust. Spray lined the bed. Tinted the windows. Painted the Cap white. Et Cetera, etc....
    Then sold it because I needed the space after buying a newer truck.

    Wish I still had it.

    J10s and the fullsize Jeeps are great, I had a Wagoneer and a 76 J10. Now the drivetrain from the J10 is in my CJ7.

    Here is the wifes Jeep....just another 4dr, except for the 4.1 stroker motor in it now.

    Fat Old Man [in the Toyota thread] asked to see pics of my sons Cummins Jeep CJ8. He did all the work himself.

    After he got it installed and before he painted it black.

    I've been told the in-line six is one of the easiest to rebuild engines there are. I have the opportunity to become the new owner of an '01 Cherokee w/ cracked head and bearing issues. I'm not an engine builder, but, I miss my Jeep(s). What a dilemma.

    Decided that I should carry a stout shield and compass with me wherever I go in my 97TJ.
    Made this one to hang over my spare tyre.

    Here was the view from inside my Jeep today, after 9" of rain last night.
    Every single highway, forest road, Jeep trail, and horse path I tried to get through on was washed out.

    More recent pics from earlier this month up in the mountains... sadly, I'll spend Sunday removing and nights M-W reinstalling a reman head due to a nice crack. Even has the "Good" head, not the crappy 00+ one... still cracked between 3&4. Gotta love heaps...

    I must say, that although despite spending the first four years of its life in MI, this Jeep was a pleasure to take apart. Everything just came apart, no fighting stuff, no cussing, no broken knuckles... it just worked.

    Chased all the block bolt holes except the back two (couldn't fit my tap handle back there) with a tap before I cleaned off the top of the block. Seems to have made a big difference as the tap didn't go in very easy, so it must have been cutting off crap from the threads, and the new bolts went in a LOT easier to 110 ft-lbs than they felt coming out. I did modify the lip of the firewall where it hung over the back cyl head bolt so I could get the head of my torque wrench on the socket. I'm utterly surprised Jeep didn't fix this design flaw over the years.

    Had one little hiccup. I was filling it up with coolant, and I hear it hitting the garage floor. I break out a flashlight and see it coming out of the top of the back of the head. Apparently, this head was tapped for a temp sender in the head. I had to go get a brass plug which fit, and put some thread sealant on it.

    Added benefit, and I don't know why is that the Jeep is running 10-15* cooler than it was before.

    Thanks... I vowed not to modify this one and keep it just stock-levels of capable. No lift other than replacing the worn-out leafs out back with the stock UC ones off my old white Jeep which got a 6" lift, some 3/4" spacers up front again because the coils are a bit tired, and the take-off Moabs which are on the second set of tires. Outside of that, she's bone-stock, HPD30 front, 4.0/AW4/242, and unfortunately a D35c due to the ABS, but it hasn't let go yet...Outside of a split in the leather on the bolster of the driver's seat, she's fine inside too.

    Bought my JKU back in '07 and still have her. Love this thing.

    These photos were taken before I...ummm....tested the roll cage a few years ago.

    Lol, yeah not bad. As much as I hate California, life can be pretty good out here sometimes.

    Here's a few more shots from that same vineyard...

    With a spool out back and a locker up front, it would go pretty much wherever you pointed it.
