I have on board air .... half doors full doors or no doors, and I lay my windshield down. Looks like your windshield is still up.

I get enough exposure to nature on my bike so I'm a windows up ac on type of jeeper. I did enjoy the Cj my wj replaced but it was hot dusty cold (in winter) and I always got dirty,brush scratched? And even ticks a few times. Maybe I'm just getting older and softer

Does actually washing my jeep count as an upgrade?

If you're upgrading from dirty to clean, then yes, it does!

News Flash::: a rear shock with no bushings is not a working shock One sitting under the seat or in the back does not count as working either buddy

This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

Still working away on the trailer.. here is where it is now.

Six inch extension on the tongue with receiver to hold the lock n roll hitch system.


Got a motorhome reciever and cut it and the brackets down to fit and welded them in for a rear reciever. Would be great if I could hold my dirt bike but I'll settle for a recovery point and a holder for the mountain bikes.


Drilled and tapped angle iron to hold the four foot drawer slides that allow the floor to slide out, making it easier to get stuff when the tent is deployed.


The 16 gallon tank water tank and the welded brackets to hold it in place.
Front view


Rear view. The box will hold the pump and strainer and protect it from rocks and gravel kicking up and hopefully keep some of the mud and dirt out.


The pump and strainer. The connections will go on the flat panel of the rear fender in front of where the hoses are coiled.


Skid plate in place and pump box sealed


Back on the tires again and still a good amount of ground clearance.


Will update when I get the fill, vent and output connectors done.
