    Thank you everyone for the kind words! We're going to be seen here and there at ORP events and adventures whenever we can, so we'll still be around at least for a while. I'll post our travel pics here to share with the group, and of course I'll be viewing all you your amazing adventure photos here. @Number7 is still leading the Baja trip this spring, and we're still planning on running the Ducey this August and attending the Dirt Formal Gala this year. So like @theksmith said, for all intents and purposes, everything here is remaining the same. We love our ORP Family!!

    Well the WJ is back home after being built on in Virginia for a couple weeks. A few things changed as it was being built, I had to get slightly wider wheel spacers to clear the new steering. We decided to go to a 4.5" lift height vs 5.5" to save on additional drivetrain upgrades.. In the meanwhile I did pickup a np231 transfer case I plan to swap the 247 out with. Ultimately, the 231 is a simpler and more convent case until I've got enough time and patience to do a 241or as I was planning for in my last build. But the 231 has a plethora of upgrades like SYE kits and 6 pinion planetary, wide chain, it will be suitable enough for the interim. For now, the jeep is on its own weight but still needs a few things worked out. Biggest thing right now is it needs to be strung out and squared up and aligned. I found after my 4hr drive home the rear springs were very unhappy. I have already made a small adjustment to the rear arms, and it's better, but I decided not to do much else until I can have it fully aligned. I don't have any concrete to even set it all out on so I'm going to farm this job out locally to an actual 4x4 shop who has an alignment rack sometime this week. The list of goodies I am working with now to satisfy some curiosity; Trail Forged Long arm front and rear Trail forged ultimate steering kit with 1 ton Tie Rod ends and Raised trackbar Metalcloak TJ 3.5(4.5 for wj) dual rate spring front and rear Bilstein 5125s 11" shocks Front JKS quick discos A couple of things on the shelf that are on the to do list; New THOR intake New muffler(currently straight piped and dumped under the rear passenger seat, sounds fantastic if I was still 18) Auxbeam switch Panel 231 case as mentioned before ZJ washer bottle A grinder to start hacking up the front bumper Yeah that spring is not so happy!

    Our group here has found a way to set the midland MTX275 car mobile to privacy code on 22 that will/should (filter out) other long range chatter and will work with the Midland handheld unit set on 41. I have instructions if you want them. Pretty simple. We are testing it out on a group ride to Parachute Hill tomorrow . Mick

    We definitely had some awesome weather and people. The water in the washes and the canyon made it all that more enjoyable. Mrs. @K2man56 did an awesome job of driving the sections she was in the driver's seat for. Big Al's route was a good mix of everything, I am going to borrow it if he does not mind Here are some of the pics Stephanie took. Found this oddity hangin' from a tree. Disregard the SXS party crasher behind @Mick Bowers.

    We used this set up today on a ride to Parachute Hill. “ Perfect”. No outside chatter over a 7 hour period. The ride area was near I-17. After the privacy code is set on the vehicle mobile; the hand held units have channels that work with it. You can select any channel on the mobile. example: MOBIL Privacy code 31 HANDHELD Channel 41 I CAN SEND A FULL EXPLANATION ON HOW TO PROGRAM IT.

    10.9 is hard to find locally sometimers, and Jeep also likes to use non-common thread pitches on some of their larger bolts that make those a PITA to source. FYI, the Paradise Valley Ace Hardware has one of the better fastener selections of any nearby.

    For the last several years George and I have found ourselves yearning to spend more time at the beach. After moving to Kingman, the wish turned more into our constant focus, to the point that we're planning to move to Mexico within the next year or so, to invent a beach-bum lifestyle for ourselves. Obviously, numerous logistic issues arise in terms of our ORP responsibilities when considering an international move, and under these circumstances George and I can't devote the kind of time and energy that we feel ORP deserves. While it was a very difficult and emotionally bittersweet decision, we've sold our interest in Offroad Passport to Kristoffer, and we're confident that he will carry on the vision of ORP we all three always shared. Offroad Passport is the most worthwhile thing that either George or I have ever done. It's gone from the idea of 3 wheeling buddies into a thriving community of helpful and considerate adventure-minded folks. Considering the places that we traveled to, the things that we saw, the experiences we experienced, the people we met, and the friends we made; this turned out way beyond any of our wildest imaginations back in the day. And thankfully us 3 original wheeling buddies remain friends today, even as we go through life changes. We're super enthusiastic for the future of the club and will still be members, attending adventures and events as time/travel allows.

    "The only way you can predict the future is to build it." ~ Alan Kay Everyone please join me in wishing George and Diane well on their next adventure! I'm going to miss having you two as partners immensely, but am happy to know you'll be fulfilling a new dream. We've worked together so well over these past 13+ years to foster a great community. Thank you so much for all the love and hard work you've put into Offroad Passport. I will continue to look after the website and club with the same dedication you've always shown. I want to assure all our members, who are the life-blood of Offroad Passport, that nothing else is changing. The site will still look the same for the foreseeable future. We'll still have the Gala, the Holiday Party, and all the other exciting adventures that we're known for.

    Quick update, been accumulating all the parts for the lift and should have everything at this point. The long arm kit is pretty much done and ready, but I I've since decided to let the shop that built the long arms handle the install. The wj is currently at a local shop for new fuel filter, oil change, and since my new injectors arrived, probably those too. I dropped off to also do new stainless hard lines but the flex lines were so corroded they're holding off until I get my new flex lines in too. They did also manage to break a fuel line to the filter so it's sitting there until parts come in for that. Dropping off the wj on the 29 and won't be picking up until it's done early next month and is likely when I'll post the next update.
