Would love to see a site like this with some Jeeps involved. If only I didn't live in Ohio.

Keep the pic's coming, I'll have to post my rig up here soon.

so I am finally making progress after 30 or 40 changes to my build plan I decided to keep it simple. I have an LJ and I dont want to mangle it as one day it might be a sought after body style. Went with an OME HD lift, JKS trac bars, Anti rock, JKS 1.25" bodylift (so I can flat belly it).

I am only going to run 33x10.5 KM2s on factory wheels so I will stay D44/30 and upgrade to cromos and ARB lockers.

Aside from that I am probably going ARB front bumper with WARN xdi. OUt back I have a bestop integrate tire carrier so I will keep that and do some sort of frame cover with Drings like the ROKMEN.... topped with a roof rach and I think I will be set

Just about finished up with my new trailer. Next I'm researching solar panels and battery set-ups to run a fridge in the tub. Then getting a winch on a receiver hitch for the trailer to also run to previously mentioned battery

I've been building mine to fit this description - no tent up top though. Just missing the lights.

If you have never seen this, it is a must:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=585918

One of the coolest reads I have ever seen. These guys take their bikes through Borneo and there are pics of land cruisers, rovers and a jeep all running a parallel course through the jungle, over cliffs, rickety bridges, etc.
I think someone else mentioned it earlier.

My other (and equal) favorite is this one:
http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...hi-to-Kinshasa
A belgian couple drives their underequipped 70 series through the Congo and encounter a series of dangers that reads better than the best adventure novels. Also with great pictures!
This is the adventure of a lifetime.

It looks like the Spider LJs inbred cousin.

Most AEV inspired Jeeps follow the same trends. I will openly admit he pushed me over the edge for the roof rack since his is only 1 of 3 LJs that I have seen with a Gobi. Im also going to copy him and get the Black Stainless Grill Mesh insert put in this fall

i'v tried to keep mine a decent daily driver while still prepping it for expedition duty and weekend trails runs, so it might not look like a typical "overland" rig...
















features include: on-board hot water shower with on-demand electric pump, engine oven, slide out rear table, CB + HAM + GPS + SPOT + Laptop/dock/touch-screen with TOPO/OBDII/FSM, roof basket with custom load distributed mounting & custom locking mounts for Hi-Lift/Shovel/Axe, spares of all sensors & many other parts, 65lbs of tools, battery welding setup, fridge on quick release mount, dual sealed AGM extended-amp-hour batteries with intelligent charge management, on-board high CFM air (with 5lb tank to run tools), auxiliary red LED map lights for preserving nightvision, lift/skids/lockers/tires and such, beefed up JK Rubicon axles with RCV & Superior alloy shafts for reliability, bug-out-bag with large Adventure Medical supply kit + survival equipment/water/rations


no RTT due to the daily driver status, i use a tent-cot on solo trips:
