    Real MPGs for your rig?

    Well then, the diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee might be what you want. It’s medium sized, not quite small, but then again it seats only 5 so it’s on the small side. (Roof rack and space case) (Camping by the Rome Pillars in Southern Oregon) (By the Rome Pillars in Southern Oregon) (On the...

    Countries Visited: Resource

    I’m confident we have members here who have been to many countries. Shall we use the ISO-3166 list to define what’s a “country”. One example is that England and Wales and Scotland and Northern Ireland are really one country — they are the United Kingdom (technically the United Kingdom of Great...

    Real MPGs for your rig?

    The best I’ve gotten on a complete tankful is 35.5 MPG in adiesel Grand Cherokee — all highway driving, at reasonable speeds and little wind (tail or head). I went 835 miles on that tank. Wish my bladder could last that long.

    For those that carry Guns and Overlanding

    But those who carry should be trained, not just on proficiency and accuracy but also on target recognition and acquisition, and what is beyond and nearby the target. I’m not saying that you are not trained. I’m making that point as a reminder to those who choose to have a firearm with them — and...

    Bodie Ghost Town & Mono Lake (Sierra Nevada Mtns of California)

    Last pics. ► that odd, round stone structure — it’s in the middle of nowhere, with nothing else around; odd ► the rest of the pics are from going around the east end of Mono Lake, heading eastward, then southward before heading west and back to US-395; the dirt was a silt-like dust, almost like...

    Bodie Ghost Town & Mono Lake (Sierra Nevada Mtns of California)

    Pictures from this trip. Old thread. The new interface makes pic uploads from the iPad easier. ► The steep, 26% grade over Sonora Pass / CA-108. ► Bodie church ► 2 pics, east of Bodie at the Nevada state line — dirt road, tiny sign, no casinos ► 3 pics along Mono Lake (with a seagull in flight)...

    Wheels for my WK2 Grand Cherokee: Rock Stars?

    You missed the point. I needed to downsize from 20 to 18 anyway, so the wheels had to go.

    Wheels for my WK2 Grand Cherokee: Rock Stars?

    I got the Black Rhinos, and BFG KO2s in 255/70-18s. Thanks for your opinions, they helped.

    Wheels for my WK2 Grand Cherokee: Rock Stars?

    Thanks. They look a good wheel but I don’t see a style that I like. http://www.atxwheels.com/wheels.cfm?id=5870. Maybe ATX’s AX201 will work, they look nice: https://goo.gl/W3nohk. I found some on eBay, but none in black. I’m now looking at Black Rhino and I like their York wheels. York...

    Wheels for my WK2 Grand Cherokee: Rock Stars?

    Okay, then factory takeoffs might be the way to go. And to clarify, with the diesel Grand Cherokee (WK2), 17s I think will not fit because the brakes are bigger on the diesel. Probably for towing capacity. I'm still trying to confirm this, but I think 18s are the smallest wheels I can use...

    Wheels for my WK2 Grand Cherokee: Rock Stars?

    Maybe I'll just get Jeep wheels in 18”.

    Wheels for my WK2 Grand Cherokee: Rock Stars?

    Really appreciate that. I see them all over near me, but on pavement and streets. I do like the stars on them, but you're right, if they can't handle shipping then I don't want them. So then what are good, strong wheels? Here are my needs — may help for any recommendations. 1) This is my...

    Wheels for my WK2 Grand Cherokee: Rock Stars?

    I have the Jeep 20” wheels that came stock. I want strong wheels, strong for off-roading, but nice looking on the street. I’m considering Rock Stars — I’ve noticed them on the street and I like the star design on them, I like the way they look. Are they decently strong for trail use? For...

    MaxTrax, are they worth it?

    Looks great. I was wondering about the carpet scraps idea too, and that was mentioned upthread.

    120v Air Compressor on Inverter

    Sounds good. How long to air up one tire, and thatks from what PSI to what PSI? Thanks in advance, bluejeep.

    Why don’t more people take the WK2 overlanding?

    I run 32” tires on mine, the biggest that will fit in a stock suspension Quadra-Lift WK2. My tires are the Goodyear Duratracs and I've been happy with those. I hear good things about the BFG KO2 too. My wheels are 20”, and the tires are 275-55/20.

    Why don’t more people take the WK2 overlanding?

    That air dam is removable: http://jeepgarage.org/f156/remove-front-valence-for-better-approach-angle-75864.html Have you tried that? I also have the 20” wheels. Am considering switching to the 18s.

    Why don’t more people take the WK2 overlanding?

    I love my JGC Overland Diesel too! Mine wears Wrangler Duratracs, 32”. Although I'm usually lazy and just type JGC CRD. :)
