I've had 6 people and 2 dogs... No pics cuz I didn't own a fancy phone back then. It was for National topless day a few years back, so comfortable wasn't a factor.

I also once had 5 people in the single bench seat of my old truck... Talk about an uncomfortable ride...

Great pics Marn, looks like a neat place to wheel or just cruise around.

I could get 7 in the wife's JK but it would be very uncomfortable for two of them. She won't let it get near the trails I take the TJ on though.

99 TJ - Mine

A very long time ago, for a very short distance between two bars, I had 6 or 7 people in the cab of a Subaru Brat. I think there were two guys and 4 or 5 extremely flexable girls. I know it sounds like BS, but I remember peeping out under someone's knee and driving VERY, VERY carefully. It doesn't matter if you believe me, I was there and it makes a good story. Maybe you can find an old Brat and some willing, small coeds and try it. Alcohol helps. Dr. Marns, doesn't BJs make a 6" lift for a 73? It seems that I saw that they had a spring kit.

Say Dr. Marns, I have a question or two that you might be able to answer. I have got the instrument cluster and heater assembly pretty much back together in my 73. Question one is that I have a little flat brass metal, L shaped, ground clip that I think attached to the heater controls somewhere. i think that it tied the controls to the metal of the dash. Do you remember where it connected? I also crawled you extensive thread, but could not find the pictures of where you had cleaned thes controls. I must have missed it. My internet is slow and I skipped over some pages. My Chilton wireing diagram notes a wire from the instument cluster proper to the ground on the heater controls. Someone has removed this. Does yours have this connecting ground? If so, where does it attach to the instrument cluster?
Last question; the vacuum switch on the push button defrost/ heater/ off control has numbers on it. Which vacuum hose (main vacuum supply, defrost, heater) goes on which number? Also, anyone out there reading this thread, is there a source for replacement diaphram actuaters for the heater and defrost dampers?

I have a pair of actuators off the defrost from my 79, if you're interested. I no longer have heat or AC, so I pulled the ducts.

Be a man and just cut those fenders. My friend has a stock fsj cherokee on 33x12.50s and he don't rub lol.
If u were to body lift, would you be raising the bumpers to match also? I own a xj and BLs are unfamiliar to me lol so the only trucks I've seen on the street, which the bumpers don't line up.

I'm not familiar witht he ground you are talking about, there was a random ground somewhere that went from the back of the cluster to a random spot on the dash, but thats about all I remember, sorry!

\As for the vacuum hoses, i marked them when I removed them, haha, so no help there. I labeled them all then just reconnected, or replaced them one at a time so i knew where they went. Hopefully pretty soon here I'll be doing a new gauge cluster (going back to wood grain, appropriate to my year) and i'll get pics for you then.

If you dont hit him up, I can simply send you a full vacuum control assembly, i have a spare and will likely be getting another here soon. Let me know if you'd like it, just pay shipping and its yours.

No cutting. I like my jeep to look clean. Plus, if i cut any more in the back it will enter the inside of the body panels, creating a big gap.

I wont raise the bumpers unless necessary. 2" BL's actually dont look wrong on FSJ's. I hate them on CJ-TJ's but or some reason they really dont affect the look very much on any of the FSJ's I've seen with them?

i might take you up on that Marns. We'll see what Rob has to say. i also found an 80 Wagoneer for $500 (which I don't really have right now) that would be a good part out vehicle. there is a further discussion on my thread. Anyway, the wife is impatient to watch a movie tonight and I'll tinker on the wag tomorrow. did you check BJs for a 6" lift?

Pretty sure they only make a 4" for the early wags. Besides, my springs are only like 2 years old, and i dont much feel like shelling out another $900 for new ones even if they were 2" higher haha.

6" would require more driveline work, and whatnot, on top of cost, but i'd much rather pay like 100 for a BL and spend a weekend working on it.
