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
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.
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
