    Well since I can post pictures now..

    When I first got her:


    Then she got some paint and a rack and doorless mod.


    Then a 4.5" lift but was still rolling on some 225..pretty funny looking.


    Then some nice 31's to fit her nicely. Once day she's going to be an expedition rig. And the sides got some protection as well as some rust repair.


    Then a snorkel. And thats my bike I was given the other day for 20 bucks. And I took it out for a quick ride..Needless to say its going to get bastardered up like my Jeep. - I did everything on mine. -


    There she is. 4.5 bpack with tbird coils, everything was done by me, made by me. & just like my Jeep, I'm looking forward to doing and learning and not going to a shop to do my repairs.

    DOZER!!! Colour looks more orangish at night, and definately brighter yellow in the day. Crush was just way too orange and the wife is big on the name - DOZER! Our vanity plate actually says DOZER (wife's choice as it's her Jeep)

    Got a 2010 Rubicon last year. It's my third wrangler. Had to get the bike rack and kayak rack on there first.
    Have big plans for lift, tires, bumper, armor, etc!!

    Got some new shoes for mine this weekend. You can only spot the steering wheel in one of the pics, but it's still on the wrong side. :

    Actually your whole front end steering linkages are backwards as well.

    ^^ Not just backwards. You have no idea how hard it is to find an adjustable double shear track bar for this thing. Iron Rock Offroad for the win!

    Oh and the windshield wipers go the other way too.

    ^^ Awesome reviews. I drove them in the snow for the first time today, and I'm completely impressed. Crazy traction in the snow. I had Maxxis Bighorns before, and these are WAY quieter on the pavement, way smoother, and WAY better in the snow. I realized that I do way more snow than mud, and MT's suck in the snow. I live up a dirt road in snow country.
    They truly seem to be somewhere between an AT and an MT... I think Goodyear nailed it with these. For a weekend warrior that will see pavement as well as get abused on the trail, I can't think of a better tire.
    Only a 2-ply sidewall though, so we'll see if that becomes an issue...

    Got the Thule hitch rack this weekend. I feel much better not having that stress on the rear tire, brackets, and door.
    Had to modify the rack a bit. Had a buddy weld an additional piece of tubing to the hitch bar so the rack cleared the tire when folded up.

    Nice rig jeepergirl. I considered having an extension welded in, but I opted for the NSR as it clears the spare and holds my fat bike. If I did not have the fattie, I would have does the extension weld (used to have a Küat).
    What roof rack are you using?

    ooh, nice!

    I have the Kargo Master Kongo Cage on this jeep. No drilling required. I had a Garvin Industries rack on my 99 Wrangler and that seemed a bit more stable. It may have appeared more stable because I had a basket on the Garvin rack and only have crossbars on the Kargo Master.

    I only have to haul 3 bikes with my Jeep so I got a Yakima HighLite. Fast and easy to install and weighs next to nothing which makes it easy to haul up to my 3rd floor condo. I did, however, replace the hinge bolt with a stainless coupler lock to better secure my bikes. Not nearly as secure or cool to look at as many of the rigs you ladies and gents have posted pics of, but it gets the job done...for now.

    North Shore Rack. There's quite a few reviews for it in this forum. Great rack for the Wrangler owner (or owner of a vehicle with a gate mounted spare).

    I bought this baby last year in order to beat the Chicago snows. My luck that the past winter was the dryest in a long time. *sigh*

    I havent taken it off roading but its more than ready with D44 rear and 2 inch lift on MTRs. I also need to get a bike rack!

    Seems I cant post images yet.

    Ready for vacation!

    Here's my latest rack mod. I simply fab'ed a piece of 2" tubing to receive my Thule T2 Add-On, and bolted it to the underside of the 2" tubing of the hitch rack. (The 2" tubing of the hitch rack was too thick for the Add-On to slide in.)

    With two young children now, we will need the extra luggage space. And I still need to be able to bring the bikes, of course!

    New question here. Spare tire covers?

    Has anybody seen any cool mountain biking themed spare tire covers for Wranglers? I'd love to find one of those cartoon endo graphics or a kokopelli biking, etc. Any leads for me?

    "Life Is Good" makes tire covers. Maybe if enough people ask them to transfer their MTB t-shirt logo to a tire cover? I'd buy one...

    Thanks. That pic is a year old just after the initial resto, here's what she looks like now with new paint, tires/wheels and bike-rack.

    I shouldn't have even looked at this thread. Now I just wanna cry.
    We're definitely a Jeep family - my wife drives an '06 two door Unlimited, my son has built up a series of increasingly capable serious off road rigs and I'd been driving an '03 Liberty and planning on getting a new Unlimited, but was waiting until they came out with the Pentastar engine. Then my employer for the past 26 years started going down and I held off. They shutdown for good last November. Then, 3 months ago the Liberty blew a head gasket for the second time and we decided to park it for good rather than pouring more money into it, leaving me without a vehicle. We finally had to give in and buy a new vehicle recently, and we both wanted that Unlimited, especially now that they've got the orange color I always wanted, but there was no way we could afford it or the gas it would consume. So what did I end up with? A stupid Ford Focus hatchback. Quite a bit less expensive and gets good mileage, but what a letdown. I guess it's ok as far as cars go, but it's got way too many bell and whistles, mediocre acceleration and just feels wimpy. I always enjoyed greeting other Wrangler drivers when I drove my wife's LJ, but now I just feel embarrassed when I see a Wrangler and I'm driving a Focus. Please, forgive me...
    My only hope for a JK now is an unexpected inheritance or winning the lottery.
    We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

    You sir are a bastard. That is one sick sounding Jeep. HEMI 5.7?

    I had to put my Hemi in storage a year ago. I open this video once a week to listen to be baby. Thanks for making me home sick even a little more.

    Budda, beautiful Willys! I'm about to put a top on my '63 and need to go with a rear bike rack,
    can you post some pics of how/where exactly you attached your square receiver to the bumper/frame.

    Thnx, Goose

    Thanks!

    FTG, the original frame supports were missing when I got it, the original owner was going to install a 2nd fuel tank in the rear, so I just used some square tube to replace the triangular c-channel frame supports.
    then just retrofit a 2" receiver to the bolt on tow plate that was already on the frame, its a bit sloppy, but its strong.

    '87 MJ I used to have. Home-made sliders and rear bumper, I managed to fit 34x10.5 Swamper LTBs with 1.5" coil spacers, hockey puck bumpstops, and trimmed inner fenders.

    I miss it every single day

    That is a sweet set up with your XJ. I miss mine. Had over 325K miles but the floorboards were rusting out, had no airbags, and really wasn't safe to drive to work or off road anymore.

    Just picked this up this weekend. 01 Limited with 41k on the clock. Haven't had a jeep since I had a wrangler in high school, so I'm stoked!

    That is one sweet ride. Must have been sitting under a rock for a few years most of the Cherokees are in the 100K mileage range now. Been driving the same Cherokee for the past 13 years and don't see a replacement for it in the near future. Enjoy the find.

    99 Sahara TJ with 4" overall lift and 33" tires. We made a cheap and reliable hitch-mounted rack out of a $50 Harbor Freight cargo tray by bolting two truck bed fork mounts to it (can't find a pic) and it holds two 29ers nicely with room for front wheels and some gear.


    We mainly use this Yakima though.

    Rob1035, that is one clean Jeep. I had one I put 270,000 miles on and still didn't use any oil between changes. I still see it daily and the couple has taken it from KY to FL 4 times.

    Ditto. Same thing here. Mine just hit 160K.Enjoy it, it will last you at least 100K more if you take care of it!

    Heres my XJ during my move in May.... somewhere in Indiana.

    All Yakima stuff on the roof except for the cargo bag. Sorry i left the mtb behind to ride my favorite trail one last time before the official last move out date.

    Mechanic who changed the oil the day before said he had never seen a Cherokee squatt that much, even his own! Note I had two large dogs with me too, you can see the leashes in my hand. The jeep pulled like a champ and surpassed my expectations!

    Definitely a great find! My '97 ZJ is about to hit 163k. Still runs perfect, but 15 New England winters have taken their toll.

    And yeah, there's no replacement for an XJ!! If Jeep brought that back with no changes except for the Pentastar drivetrain, they'd make a killing.

    FatTireGoose, I have a PTO set up laying in my building that would look sweet on that thing. By the way the Jeep is a beauty.

    It is for sale. I have had two flatties and this was on the last one and I decided to keep it because you just don't see them any more. And I'm trying to thin out my Jeep parts collection.

    first try at posting a picture on here, so here goes.
    Before, headed on a Yak trip.
    <a href="http://s364.beta.photobucket.com/user/littlematt_97/library/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i364.photobucket.com/albums/oo81/littlematt_97/JPbefore.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"/></a>

    After, changed out to 33's and taking some lift off to make it a little more road friendly. I am turning the old girl back into my daily driver and the 4 cylinder doesn't like the 35's to well.

    A ton of great looking Jeeps in this thread for sure!

    Wow I didn't know this thread existed! I'm on my 8th Jeep currently. Here is the most recent picture from our Thanksgiving trip Jeeping to cut a Christmas tree in Monticello, Biking in Cortez, and Dinner in Moab on the way home.

    Edit:....
    Seems the stinger on jeeps is kinda like bar-emds on MTB's.....some guys hate em, some love em.... I haven't decided yet. Might be a good place to mount a bike to?....lol

    Yah, previous owner stuck it on there....in process of going through everything, fixed toe-in yesterday, and did oil change in motor and Trans so far.

    2008 JK with my Hardrock Disc (now stolen.....). 1.75" lift with 32" Falken Rocky Mt ATS, running AirAid cold air intake, MXRP cat-back exhaust, JVC in-dash with infinty 12" where the back seat used to be. Dad runs a 2013 Grand Cherokee, grandpa runs a 54 CJ-5. I've also had 93 ZJ, 92 XJ, and a 66 CJ-5 Tuxedo Park. Sure wish I still had that one....

    Cheers
