My name is Commander Shepard, and this is my favourite thread in JPR.

Seriously, some serious quality Jeep porn here, for those of us more interested in going on backwoods trips with our Jeeps and not just driving through mudpits or over large rocks. Giving me some great ideas for my ZJ.

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.
Dude, this is awesome. I have to say, with the rust issues of TJs in New England, and guys charging $10K+ for 100,000 miles TJs that aren't a rotbox, I've considered the KJ.... My TJ is getting rough at 235K miles.

There's quite a few low-mileage KJs on the local craigslist, and I mainly use my TJ for DD and camping and such... Maybe...

Nice Jeep, man.

^^Cool! Maybe it's just cause I was born in the 50's and the autos of the 60's and 70s have a lot of memories for me.. These type of pics and the builds people do to them always bring back some good memories. If I ever get in the state where I can do something along those lines I'm def. going to be looking into it. Just have to convince "she who must be obeyed".

it's just a secure place to warm food with the engine heat. it sits directly above the headers and on a normal trail ride it gets food steaming hot. on freeway rides in the winter it doesn't work so well - apparently gets to much wind zapping away the heat.

on a day trip, i just grab a burrito or two from a local mexican hole-in-the-wall and throw it there and at lunch time the cheese is all melty and it's piping hot.

on expeditions trips, my girlfriend will often pre-cook me some meals and package them in those little foil loaf pans (they fit perfect). i'll throw one on after lunch time and have a hot supper ready when we get to camp.



BBQ pulled pork, chili, cheesy potatoes and any kind of caserole works great.

it doesn't get hot enough to "cook" meat safely IMO, just to warm stuff. if i had room to set it right on the headers i'm sure i could cook anything.

i know a lot of people that use those $30 12v "lunch box" type cookers. they work great, and get hotter. i like the engine oven because it's simple, can't fail, and uses heat that you are already producing anyway.

made it out of a pan from the grocery store and a brass hinge, stainless steel latch, pot lid handle, and piece of aluminum plate from Ace. cut the aluminum plate with a jigsaw. pop-riveted the hinge onto the pan lip and the aluminum at the back. and you can see how the latch works in the pic. used some aluminum bar to mount it to an engine hoist stud location on one side and on the other side to the ABS mounting bolt.

i've seen all sorts of variations of these. if you have the 4.0L you can just wrap stuff in aluminum foil and bungey it down on the intake manifold.

Very cool! Thanks for all the info I'm going to try something like this. My dad used to tell me stories about some guys pulling out hot meals after a day of geology field work. Always thought that was ingenius.

I consider what I do off the beaten path, not really expedition.

With a TJ its easy to justify more storage room, so I build this out of an old m416 trailer.
