Expedition CJ?

Anyone make their CJ more for expedition trail running? I'm seriously considering going that way with mine, since I'm not too keen on rock crawling or mudding as I was.
Any tips would be good

The only one that I've seen is just the distance/time and trying to make it as self sufficient as possible

i think i know what you're talking about and really like the idea. i'm imagining you want to deck it out like some of the Land Rover Defenders. off road lights, winch, hi lift jack, snorkel, safari roof rack, jerry cans for gas and water, shovel and axe mounted to the sides of the safari basket. would be good for back woods camping and such. i'm imagining it being set up more for weekend exploring as opposed to technical rock crawling or mud riding.

here's a roof rack pic i got from 4wd.com:

I like the idea but not many trails left that are that long these days.
It makes camping and getting away alot easier. Like Renegade79 was
talking about sounds killer, the yota guys build some nice rigs for such
adventures.

There are still some nice trails like that out here in the SW, but yea, I've been thinking like the Yota guys. And that rack is actually on my wishlist for the 7

I saw this thread this morning and had some time to think about it, and i recall seeing a place where a guy was building a cj to explore south america pretty neat build.

Some things he did to his were OBA, which i think would be necessary for any expedition worth vehicle, Other things included turning the tube bumpers into air tanks, ARB lockers, roof rack to hold spare tires, jerry cans, lights everywhere, made a handy repair kit. Kept it pretty low too only 32 or 33's

To follow on JeepnBlake's post,
an on board welder should be a top priority, along with axle shafts, u-joints I guess what a typical trail rig should have.
Later, T.J.

I dont know how seriously you want to make your jeep for long term trips but, I've seen some BA off road trailers out there that have fold over sleeping quarters above, kitchen space below, water/food storage ect. something like that

hey JT..

Thread resurrection.

I am thinking along exactly the same lines.

I will never rock crawl with mine (well, seriously doubt it), and I love the Expedition type of Land Rovers out there... so I am gonna make my CJ expedition style. Something like what Kryptae has on here.

It would be great to get some specific additions on here so we can work on our Expedition builds.

So, I'll start: http://www.rotopax.com/
