    Trail Worthy Fab

    I don't know but I have only one time when I got a rock stuck between a dual wheel and I drove them for over 40 years.

    historical I wasn't sure where to put it and I hope you can pull it up.

    Pop top or hard side dilemma

    I suppose I'm somewhere in the middle. I can live with it without the top being raised as long as I don't smack one of the lights with my head. Taking a shower is fun and if I raise the top it's around 23" higher. I usually sleep on the couch.

    GPS- navigation unit or iPad?

    Sorry if you didn't like my reply but I did years of geology work and all we had were paper maps and a compass.

    GPS- navigation unit or iPad?

    It really sounds like you need to figure out how to read a map. I still have all of those paper things and I never get lost.

    Smittybilt SRC Rear Bumper

    I have done a lot of welding and have a ASME inspector watch me as I was welding and he said that I could be certified. I just stick things together but a welding insteuctor looked at one of my welds and said was better than he could have done

    Smittybilt SRC Rear Bumper

    Huh, I own a welder and spent less than $100 to build a new cross member and a bumper with a reciever mount. You seem to have more $ than I do to throw out.]

    2018 JL prices

    Never going to happen for me. The price is more than I spent for my house or my 4X4 motorhome. I still have 2 Jeeps and I am into them around $5.000. The first Jeep was $500. Idiotic prices.

    Walking the Line

    Jerry, just find what works for you. I deal with a 20 ft motorhome. I have lived in it for months at a tine. I've dealt with trailers, campers and motorhomes for over 50 years. Then again I can throw all of my stuff in my 3B for many nights of camping. I miss the pictures of your dogs.

    FUSO 4x4 man trans - test engine brake parked/moving (check brake shoe thickness)

    My exhaust brake works fine, I use it all of the time in town or on Mt passes.

    Dice...... The 1978 Jeep Wagoneer

    I'm with you, My 3B is built up like it would have been done in the early '60s. (that is how I bought it) It works fine and is a favorite out on the trails. I get more attention than any other Jeep in the group.

    Crappy Exhaust Brake??

    As I have said to many friends that give me crap, I'm on vacation." I get there when I get there". They all have big fancy campers and I ask them about fuel mileage. OK, abut same as I get. They can just drive a bit faster.

    Crappy Exhaust Brake??

    Mine has worked fine the entire time I have owned the thing. If anything I have to hit the skinny pedal to make it look like I am keeping up with the traffic on the back side of a pass. The truck drivers like me as I blend into the stream of trucks over there in that lane. Like I can pass...

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    It's much easier to carry 2 containers, one in each hand as I keeps you in a position for better balance.

    Am I just outdated?

    A lady friend put around 380,000 on her 4.0. Several water pumps and a transfer case. Ohio is not a good state for vehicle bodies. She finally sold it and got something new. I talked her into waiting a few years...

    Am I just outdated?

    I love it, on a few vehicles you have to take a front tire off to get to the battery.

    Am I just outdated?

    I do almost everything on my vehicles except for AC and computer things. Other than tires, nobody touches my Jeeps. What can I say, I know more about old Jeeps than any shop near me. My neighbor had problems with sensors on 2 of his Powerstrokes. Ford couldn't figure it out after 3 days. "Oh...

    Yet another brake issue.

    If yours is like mine, It is actually a low vacuum light. Diesels don't develop a vacuum like a gas engine will. I have a pump on the backside of my alternator that does the job.

    1973 Wagoneer - Full Size Camping Goodness

    It's your Jeep so do what you want to do. The last time I drove the Holy Cross City trail people were running out from their parked vehicles to talk to me about my 3B. They didn't care about the CJ7, CJ5 or the LC that was on the road. I still have the Buick in a shed. (I really should fix the...

    Yet another brake issue.

    As I replied before I just do a lot of down shifting. I can do all of the passes here in CO and never touch the brakes on the downhill parts, actually I need to hit the skinny pedal. I did manage to slide through a stop light as my Jeep was pushing me through it. I probably piss off a lot of...
