Replaced my rear brake pads at 70,300mi. Still has factory front pads....
The BLD uses the brakes more than my foot does, with a manual tranny


I'm just here for the gasoline. --Max

Replaced the stock speaker's with 6.5 Kicker 3 ways...

Then installed blue led lights under the seat, front and back of center consule.

Installed back up camera, but the woman doesn't like it but its there... (sure helps when hooking up the trailer by myself)

Here in North Queensland we have "The Cape". It's renowned for it's vast wilderness and indigenous lands. If you live north of Townsville, the Cape is where it's at. Only if you get a flat up there - They fly in 35's. You could be waiting weeks.

As above states ... little bit of home engineering. Took months. Have a build thread on an Aussie forum. Am I allowed to post a link ? Made it so the tire brackets bolt onto the swing aways like spare tire spacers. So I'm now looking at making jerry holders to also bolt onto the swing aways. So I can go 2 spares, or 4 jerrys or a spare and two jerrys.

It's yet to get powdercoated (I just sprayed it up) as I wanted to see if anything fell off and was bouncing away in the rear view mirror ... but she's been solid as a rock. Even had the Mrs standing on the 35's while they were open.

Put away the hard top and pulled out the ORH's soft top.

Pulled the drive shafts for some inspection and maintenance.

Wheeled it.

Good day.

Never trust a happy man

I off road because I have a Jeep. I don't have a Jeep because I off road. Above all my Jeep is a convertible. That's where my love is for the brand ...convertible overkill

I was thinking the same thing. I was able to take mine out today and run errands, didn't have to get anything too bulky.

If you eat, drink, or wear cloths then you're involved in agriculture.
