Went to a swap meet today traded some junk for some junk , traded one tj half door for a set yj full doors that need a lot of work. Then I traded a beat up cj7 tail gate for a cj7 dash that could use some work. And yes I plan on using them on on my TJ






Also started redoing the trans mounts for the 5 speed swap

Returned from the Uwharrie OHV Jamboree. Took some battle scars taking the hard line on the ledge on the hardest trail in the park. Still managed to get up it. This trip made me realize that I not only need new CA bushings in the rear end (neverending squeaks), but need to redo the way the 8.8 is set up to fix clearance and spring seating issues. Otherwise I was very pleased how well it performed with only LSD/Open. Got up everything I came to.

When you say "for camping" do you mean a small pop up tent trailer? Or a trailer to hold your tent and camping gear. I love the idea of the latter, just a small offroadable utility trailer with matching wheels and tires to the jeep that is outfitted with an outdoor kitchen and space for gear and firewood with a rack system for bikes and yaks. I doubt it will happen now though because last year we bought a travel trailer to tow behind our Xterra and My wife, who for the first 19 years of marriage loved tent camping, is spoiled now and I don't think she want's to sleep in a tent anymore. I love the RV but still dig tent camping. My Dad and I do a two week long motorcycle camping trip every year and I never get tired of that. When he gets too old to motorcycle I could see doing the same trips in the jeep.

We tent camp. When we pack up. the back is full. So it would just be a small box 4'x4' or so. I was thinking on 31's. there are a few builds on here I've looked at. I would really like one of those canned ham travel trailer. That motorcycle trip should like a blast.

Nice. Just installed mine today. Make sure you have 5/8ths and 1/2 drill bit and a tie rod puller and you're good to go

I would...well I am actually, this week or next, moving my intake into the cowl. I thought about snorkel once for about 15 secs b/c living in FL, but:

1. I plan on moving
2. The amount I scrape my windshield frame, I'd rip one off probably right away

Suggestion, to get my track bar out of the frame end I removed the nut, then I whacked the frame mount with a mallet, then just wiggled the steering wheel with the jeep on...the tb felt right out
