ZTE87,
I like the work you have done. Really impressed by the top an how that functions. Currently running a CJ style top on my 92.

Walker seems alot like Evans. Looks like another fun place I need to check out.

Again, nice rig.

I would be game for that. Thanks. My YJ is out of commission for a bit while I decide how I am going to fix it. Like you though, I have a larger family than the wrangler can support so I also have a built up XJ for my wife, boys ride with me in the wrangler an the girls ride with wife.

It looks like walker is passible during the winter months from the pictures you have shown. How true is that perception? Is 32's with open diff's going to have a chance?

Yeah it's passable in the winter but it does get really slick but the trails are open year round, and with the right spotter you would be fine on 32's/open diff if you did get stuck I have straps, blocks, and the winch . In fact I plan on going up to walker the weekend of the nov 17th I normally always work Saturday (I work at les Schwab) and this is my first weekend off in a while!

Sounds like fun. Like you, I am properly equipted with a winch (reciever mounted) an recovery gear. I just dont want to be "That Guy" who has to be pulled all day as I am somewhere I shouldnt be.

I will def look you up when time permits me to go that dirction.

Again, nice build an I know its late but congrat's on the edition to the family.

Would love too. My YJ is down for the count an the (new to me) XJ is getting lifted. Kept most the lift parts from my 88 I torn down except the springs which I gave to a friend for helping me.

Its been over a year since I have been out as life has a funny way of getting in the way. An seeing your pix just remind me of what I am missing.

I am hoping to have XJ running in time for the family XMass tree run where we get a tree permit an goto the mountains to get a tree. Normally the weekend following Thanksgiving.
