    Default Introducing my 98 D1

    Well after lurking for 3 months here and drooling over both issues of Overland Journal (Has Damned near replaced Playboy by the toilet!) I've all but finished my build! This setup will get me thru my trip in Mexico Dec. 21st thru Feb. 1st with no problems. But the bad news is I've decided I'm going to do the Rubicon Trail next June and will need to go larger. So next spring I'm adding 2" more lift and 33" tires along with R&R ARB's and HD axles. As for now:

    Dual Optimas Red & Yellow
    Vector MaxxSST 750 watt Inverter
    15 LB. Powertank mounted
    ARB HD Springs
    Bilstein Shocks
    Factory Steel Wheels
    245/75/16 Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo's
    Superwinch 9000EI
    Custom Winch Guard with extra clearance
    Front Skid plate
    home made limb risers
    Lightforce 240 blitz
    Honda 2000 Generator
    Technitop Tent
    Northwestparts.com custom rack
    scheptor fuel and water cans
    sirius radio
    custom rock sliders
    hi-lift jack
    Waeco 50 litre fridge
    yellow top Optima battery
    PETT Toilet System
    Kelly Kettle

    Also, need some sort of communications.

    Whoever is going to MOAB or Canyonlands just let me know as it is 2 hours away from my house!!

    Cheers,

    The Rover looks great. If you're going to go an other 2" on the lift don't forget a ladder extension for the tent. Looks like it wouldn't hurt to go for it right now that way you could get closer to the ideal 15' ladder angle.

    After you do the Rubicon stop by my house for a cold beer and a warm shower, I'm 40 minutes away.

    Congrats on the trip! I'll second the request for a report or just where you're going. Will the dog be traveling as well?




    Nice Rover too. That first pic looks like it should be in a magazine!

    Thanks for the compliments! As for the trip report I'll be doing a weekly blog for www.mountainkhakis.com which is a company that hires me to shoot their clothing catalogue every year.
    Martyn I'm coming to see you guys for sure when I do the Rubicon to get that beer!!

    Default Nice Rig

    Ben,

    Nice looking rig. The trip sounds like it will be fun. I love the product as well. If you need any shots in classic series dormobile please let me know, I can be paid in clothing

    I should have the rig here in a week or two and then i need to tear into it.

    have a great trip to Mexico.
