Winchester Bay, OR

There's a giant beach right next to the dunes, some lakes near the other set of dunes. It's beautiful out there and plenty of space to run around.

Running stock TJ springs with 3/4" spacers, 14" coilovers without coils until I swap in the wider axles (real estate issues). Front will have two 14" coilovers with coils as soon as I get around to it.

Added a rear spreader, guess I'm a hypocrite and needed one after all! Had to get creative getting the c pillars back in place. Warping from the weld heat pulled them into each other. This is why you put in a rear spreader, even if it's just temporary. Lesson learned.



Installed and welded

Couple small updates:

sealed up the np435 for good


Made an ugly "j arm" and a new adapter plate to move the clutch slave cylinder out of the way and keep a one piece driveline.

Stock


ugly j arm


cardboard cutout of the new plate (forgot to take a pic of the actual plate)


chopped down the fuel filler so it will fit with coilovers

stock


chop



weld


did regular maintenance and threw in a new u joint in the front. Amazon has the spicers on prime for around $14, better than any of the parts store generics for $12

Went out to Naches as well. Did more camping and drinking than wheeling but I'm hoping to get out this fall and winter too


Selling my camper if anyone is interested

Nothing really hardcore, but I do think it will help others looking for answers. Rampage fastback style soft top fits on my custom cage. Love this top already, should have done this a LONG time ago!

Lookin' good. Your front tire looks a little slack.

Thanks Louie! It was a little low, I think the valve stem is the culprit. Luckily this is 1/4 mile from my house and I wanted the sunlight to warm up the top.

Space Ghost is the **** by the way!
