    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    From the ones I have seen where someone thought it through, that does seem to be the trick that makes them viable. Solidly anchored to the ground, properly braced, insulated against the...

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    That sounds really cool. I'm going to get some prices on the carport solutions. I know everyone talks down on them, and everybody says they blow away all the time, but I own a couple of welders, I...

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    I hear ya....I used to check out the Garage Journal forum a lot to look for ideas to tame the mess the attached too shallow two car I have, but got tired of seeing all the build threads where they...

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    I don't have to worry about mileage, my WJ and XJ never actually move.....unless needed to use the jack stands for something else, then they sit on pieces of 2x6.

    Man, real life has a way of...

    Re: The V8 Barbie II build

    I am taking off time around the 4th to wrench on the WJ, here's hoping. We have been twice to Moab, and I am more than ready to go again. Still get hard time from wife about driving Hells Revenge...
  6. Re: So I am in the market for tires for the WJ daily driver.....

    I promise to post....as always, real life blows up schedules, plans, and even dreams sometimes.

    I got JK rims, a budget boost lift, and the start of some armor, tires are coming, maybe next month.

    Re: The V8 Barbie II build

    Good luck with this. It's funny how that a possible kick-start to my WJ "minor build" arrived recently, and the wife mentioned Moab today. I can't see how at the moment, but it would be awesome to...

    Re: What did you do to your Jeep today?

    I actually ordered something for a Jeep......and it showed up at the house. I am hoping this will be the base solution to solve one of the issues with my WJ, and get the minor build moving once...
  9. Re: So I am in the market for tires for the WJ daily driver.....

    Seen the Klevers. will check them out.

    I actually may have limited my choices in tires with a opportunity for some rims and worn tires from a JK, but we will see. Fitment of the JK wheels and...
  10. Re: So I am in the market for tires for the WJ daily driver.....

    I have a set of those that refused to die on my old K20 farm truck. Good tires, they were an option for the Explorer until we found the Coopers. If I was driving the XJ more often, they would be a...
  11. So I am in the market for tires for the WJ daily driver.....

    My WJ daily driver needs tires.....I have had great success with the Cooper Discoverer A/T3 on the wife's '03 Explorer in a 265/70-16 that mainly spends it's time on pavement, but has "random acts of...
  12. Re: If you live in NC or a few states away, visit the "4x4 Beach" at least once...

    Looks like there are several campgrounds in Nags Head or Kitty Hawk, which are nearby, and have better choices of stores for supplies.
  13. Re: If you live in NC or a few states away, visit the "4x4 Beach" at least once...

    I recall seeing something about campgrounds, but the area is not so $$ in the off-season. We got an ocean-front room for $70/night in Nags Head, which is just a few miles away.

    The Outer Banks Adventure

    Sadly, I am still sifting through the over 3K pictures we took during our trip, and I was hoping to present it in an organized fashion. That may take awhile.

    I had last been to the Outer Banks as...
  15. If you live in NC or a few states away, visit the "4x4 Beach" at least once...

    Did this recently, and still working on the pics for the trip report.

    But here's a link to some more info. https://www.outerbanks.com/carova.html

    It was very cool adventure for a couple, so...

    Re: So I bought some stuff for a trip....

    Okay, so I covered the deflators and the compressor. As we were getting ready for this trip, I realized a regular d-handle shovel was too large, and most of my entrenching tools had given up, or...

    Even though there is a lot closed, there are still some cool places to go, very close to you.

    Ironically, during a moment surfing the Internet during the trip, I found a better set of instructions for another brand that seemed to imply there was a PSI to portion of full turn of adjustment...

    Re: So I bought some stuff for a trip....

    Yes, as the deflation rate slows as the air pressure decreases, I did not get a chance to see how accurate my 16 PSI guesstimate was (because Mrs Dredwolf was in a hurry to take...

    Re: So I bought some stuff for a trip....

    So on to the Viair compressor....

    Based on a limited budget and an "up to 33" tires" sizing guide, I bought this Viair 88P compressor:

    My apologies for being very over-due on the follow-up, I'll also try to write up a trip report for another section of the forum.

    Since real life seems determined to prevent me from ever actually doing anything on my XJ, or doing anything to my WJ except drive it, I jump at the chance to do any off-pavement driving. For our...

    The one thing I can add from the single test ride I did, the fabricated decks are wicked compared to the stamped decks. The zero turn I borrowed had the same HP as my riding mower, but the...

    Re: Since we are work on Jeeps....

    Good point on the diesel, but even used, they are still $$$ in this area....I might get some better deals towards end of summer, but have a lot of grass to cut before then.
