If he is using the original style EB radius arm suspension design, it is notorious for bad axle hop in the sand. Dual shocks is a must!
Love seeing this come together!
Inspired by jscherb's soft barn door, fabrication of my soft hatch has begun:
Thanks for the ideas and...
Neat, never been in that area earlier than July. Thanks for sharing.
I had to get in an FJ and move it on the trail once. The visibility in those things stink! Big fan of my LJ with two kids
I am honestly thinking about ditching the Jap Crap and looking at the Chevy Colorado which already has a neutral T-case position that can be used for towing. My hesitation is the new 2015 due out...
I contacted Front Range and they can put together a kit for the 05+ even though their website doesn't list it. (it appears that the last update to their web site was in 2011). Ok, but it seems you...
No, the motor home is gas. You apparently don't understand what a full float axle with lockout hubs will do. The kit mentioned in the original post is for the rear axle, not the front end. Spin...
Another option is a Remco Drive Shaft Coupling, however they are just as or more expensive as a full float kit and I have heard that the mechanism gets dirty easily and is hard to operate.
Here is another option for running the JK tires. Chrysler 300c, Challenger, Magnum (LX Platform) come with a 17x7" stock steel wheel with a 71.5mm center bore and 4.5" backspacing. Some sources say...
Agreed, I already have an LJ:
It would have to be a 4dr JK and a 2012 or newer to get the decent motor. All of which are near $40K new or...
So, I am in the brainstorming process for replacing my daily driver and I am considering a late model Tacoma. It will be replacing a 2000 Ford Explorer that I currently have set up to flat tow...
Nice...should be starting my own variant of this soon.
So, let me explain my experience. When I built my LJ, I did suspension, 35" tires, 4.88 gears and Detroit Electrac selectable lockers (now discontinued) all at once replacing the factory limited...
My preference is so that the street driving doesn't change from stock. 2WD, selectable in the rear disengaged the Jeep will drive like stock. I never knew how much of an effect a helical gear...
Since you mention some rockcrawling, I'd suggest at least one locker. Since you say 70% overlanding, that would lead me to suggest a selectable locker. Not sure what your stock ratio is, but if you...
Maybe it is a TJ thing. Happens to me and I am 6'4"
On stock Ford Ranger wheels:
Having half of you jeans have the right hip belt loop ripped from it catching the door pin when exiting.

You missing having a Jeep?
Here is one I built for a Ranger I used to own:
JK seat back grafted onto a TJ rear seat:
Looks great! Hmmm...I may have to keep my eyes open for a pair of the newer headrests. Those look much more comfy than mine.
I'd hate to be the one lifting that spare to mount it on the back! Looks awesome with those meats!
In spirit of keeping this as a pic thread, here is one of my Jeep in action:
