  1. I used a small boat trailer I found on Craigslist. I built the frame on my teardrop and it was a pain to get a title on...
  2. Were hoping to go through death valley in June,,,, Hope it's in better shape by then.

    JK D44 swap

    Thanks, I'm off on a suburban overlander project. I'm ditching all the trailers and sleeping in the back of it... Were going to spend 2 weeks this summer in NV and CA.
  4. I put a RTT on my xj but after 2 weeks out west I decided I'm too old to crawl around on my jeep getting the cover on. So I built a little trailer to put it on.. Works much better now...

  8. I had one some years back, it was a great jeep except I kept having transmission and rear axle problems.. The rear is a D44 but it has an aluminum housing...

    JK D44 swap

    I think I'm ready to swap the D44 axles under my xj, these are out of a 2016 Rubicon that my buddy has. He swapped over to Rock Jock 70's. Artec trusses are on and all that's left is swapping out the yokes, then I can get them under there and start working through all the steering and brake problems..

    Storage box

    Something else on my to do list this winter was a storage box/dresser for me and the wife.. 53in deep, I used box tubing and skate board bearings for slides... I think they turned out pretty good...
  12. Welcome, My wife comes down your way every year to Clearwater Beach, with her friends...
  13. Yea very common, I've bought alot of xj's were people thought the motor was knocking but was either loose torque converter bolts or cracked flexplate..
  14. Got em in, hopefully getting some paint on them and I'll be done with the welding and grinding for awhile...
  15. Great pics, I love looking at everyone's trip pics...
