Re: 2012 Jeep JKU Sport from MOAB Industries

I used a tarp motor switch on mine - like the coal trucks use on their trailers - not a very good picture, but if you just look just under the radio to the left of the shifter, it's a spring loaded switch that you just turn one one for in and the other way for out http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...

Re: A fellow member has passed

So shocked to hear this, Chris was such a great guy and four-wheelin fanatic.. Please keep me updated so we can contribute if possible - Would love to see a "offroad" parade at his services to send him on his way..
RIP Chris........

Re: Vitara build

LOL. I'll never deny that we are hard on equipment, but I can buy a complete used buggy for a couple hundred or I can pay that for one new sensor or part, if it's not discontinued.. And fortunately bartering goes a long way when acquiring these things

Vitara build

The wife's old mudbus is starting to show it's age- 220K on original engine and the body is failing to cancer. About time to start on her replacement. Although we put almost 2500 miles on it in the woods last year. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v661/MDSLNGR77/April%202016%20vacation%20pics/20160...

Re: Drive Line Service Offers Great discount to JEEPINWV

Craigs a great guy and has access to a lot of parts at really reasonable pricing. He's even building a lot of custom driveshafts in long travel and long slip yoke designs to handle high horsepower. He showed me one he built for someone down south with a bouncer.

added a small tube kickout to the front of my tube work to help protect the hood when it goes over, will probably skin the tube with diamond plate aluminum to help keep some of the rocks the SX tires kick up from coming at the occupants as bad, plan on building a half door plated in the same aluminu...
