It is nice to have the windows though. And from what ive seen a new set of uppers doesn't cost that much so I think it's worth the investment
Lol I suppose it would be helpful but so far I haven't had any issues seeing out of them. Currently I am in need of a whole top. If im gonna spend 250 on the windows I might as well spend 400 on a whole replacement top with windows.
Jeep's looking good. I'll bet it's fun driving it in Oregon. I was up that way this past Summer (not in the jeep). It was a really cool state and I'd love to go back. The only thing I couldn't get over was having someone pump my gas. Weird.
Ha I love Oregon! A lot of people really complain about it, but I enjoy being so close to everything. I really like all the tree's. The weather can be a bit of a bummer but then it wouldn't be Oregon. Ya I was up in Washington the other day and I felt like such an Idiot because I forgot no one was there to pump my gas haha
So I broke down and ordered a best top replacement top, I really broke another zipper on my top. Good thing I just sold my Datsun cause I would be broke..
So me and buddy went to Tillamook state forest on Thursday. I knew there was going to be snow which I was looking forward, however Im 99% positive if I didnt have a front locker we would not have made it through the trail we did which is an easy trail. I also cant forget to give credit to my trusty shovel and winch.. Both also saved the day..
Start of our day, little snow
The first trail, Blazing fresh tracks!
My buddy following my tracks
Why its called cedar tree
A little pond was forming to my right
A little ways into the trail, theres part of the trail on a slant and lets just say this part of the trail and snow does not mix. My second time I ever went wheeling a buddy of mine got stuck here for over 2 hours cause he slid off the trail and we didnt have a lot for recovery but a shovel and come-along. Once I started sliding down the hill I was not going to play that same game 15 min goes by and the winch wins.
Onto more of the trail this was an interesting spot again a usually easy part of the trail, snow changes the game. Still not difficult, just a little hard for my friends jeep.
He still conquered it with a little ingenuity
Found a new hole
All in all it was a fun trip! Took forever to get through all the snow still a blast! Best of all when I got home my new soft top was sitting in the living room! Need to get that on soon.
I have now started my on-board air project I am getting tired of it taking 40 min to air up my 33's
Heres almost everything:
A/C pump in my jeep (from a cherokee)
Heres my main manifold.
I will get more pictures tomorrow, I am using a fire extinguisher as a air tank. It is rather really small but I figure it was free! and better than nothing. I am modifying my original tire jack bracket as a mount for the bottle. I am excited to get this all put together!
When you add that amount of snow to any trail it completely changes the difficulty of the trail. Especially if your not ready for it. When I went out with the group on the 25th I dont think many of them were expecting that much snow as some had some issues, including on flop... I will try and get that picture. I still have a ton of fun no matter what the terrain is.
Here is a couple mock up photos of the tank ive got. Still got to thread tape everything and finish messing with the top of the fire extinguisher. Then run a gauge inside the tub of the jeep, then run a quick disconnect out the front.
