Jeep long haul/expedition builds.

My dream was to make a dedicated trail rig out of my tj se
Now I'm going another direction

I want to keep it road worthy, but also off road capable.

I want to see your jeeps loaded with racks, gas cans, spare parts.

I know most of us will bug out with our jeeps, let's see some that are buil for that.

Well, my YJ is my trail rig, so I went with an Expedition-build on my WJ. 2004, 4.0 selectrac, 3" IRO + 10mm spacer, 265-75-16 Goodyears, ROLA rack.... It's my DD but still in the building stage. I picked up an Iceland Offroad winch bumper for it used, but haven't gotten it put on yet. Got some LED offroad lights to mount on the rack, but haven't gotten those on yet either. Spending too much time working.

The Iceland bumper will be cool -- Sure, it's not a Rock Crawler bumper being fiberglass, but perfect IMO for an Expedition build -- winch mount and light weight.

Good point about the bumper, but what happens if you have mow down some local wildlife. Lol
