One of the cleanest ZJs I've ever seen! And nice photoshop skills! You had me fooled at first!

Nice photoshop job!

I got rid of my TJ and have the KJ for "expedition" related space, towing, mpg, etc. It tows 5k and fits all my mtb and kayak crap. I wanted the diesel for extended range but fell in love with the 65th anniversary model. I still get 20mpg with a 20.5 gallon tank though This fancy electronic torque transfer stuff is pretty neat too. My open diff TJ couldn't get some of the places this does.

Great looking jeeps

I have a question for those running the baskets on the roof.Have you seen a noticeable decrease in gas milage by having the basket on the roof?

I have a roof basket, but only put it on when I need it (doesn't fit in the garage with it on). It increases wind noise and drops mpg 1-2 depending on the speed your traveling. Probably takes off like 3mpg at 85+mph.

My roof rack is low profile with small lights and has not affected the gas mileage.
I had to do some small modifications cleaning up welds and filling in under the light mounting brackets to stop the wind noise.


Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

Car Camping: Traveling in a vehicle to an established campground. *If there is a picnic table there, it is probably car camping.

Backcountry Adventure: A one-day, or multi-day off-highway trip in an adventure motorcycle or 4wd.

Overland(ing): Vehicle-supported, self-reliant adventure travel, typically exploring remote locations and interacting with other cultures.

Vehicle-Dependent Expedition: An organized, vehicle-dependent journey with a defined purpose, often geographic or scientific in nature.

Expedition Vehicle: A 4wd or adventure motorcycle prepared for self-reliant travel over long distances, through unpredictable weather and over variable terrain.

ExPo: An abbreviation of the website Expedition Portal.

Difficulty of the terrain can be defined by the*1-5 scale

I got all my camping gear loaded in my jeep for spending 3 day at the King of the Hammers Event.
Will be sleeping in the back of the jeep, got a nice 3" foam pad to sleep on, and will be doing a little trick of hanging a lightweight nylon tarp inside of the jeep for privacy and warmth.
The trick is to use some small spring loaded clamps and clamp the tarp to the rear hatch struts and the handles over the back doors. So now the tarp covers the ceiling and windows.
This is like putting a tent inside of your vehicle.
I will post some photos when I get back.

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.
