    Very short notice. Thinking of heading to Switzerland trail tomorrow now that the Jeep is back together. I don't have my CB wired up yet, but I have a spare FRS radio I can bring.

    Anyone...

    Re: 2005 LJ Adventuring Build

    Rugged ridge spartacus HD. I bought it when I put 33s on the jeep a couple years ago because I was worried about the stock tailgate hinges and the stock carrier mount didn't allow the tires to clear...

    Re: 2005 LJ Adventuring Build - Hard Top Part 3

    I finished the hard top installation after dark yesterday, so I washed the Jeep today while it was warm and took some photos. Yesterday ran much longer than anticipated for various reasons. I had...

    Looks like a nice day. Certainly more fun than the hours I spent swearing at rivnuts.

    I have been worried about this also. Fortunately a tap did the trick. Only took a minute once I had the tools in hand.

    Re: 2005 LJ Adventuring Build

    If it were warmer out yesterday I would have washed it! I just used a sponge to clean all of the areas the new top touches before setting the new pieces in place.

    Re: 2005 LJ Adventuring Build -Hard Top Part 2

    Today was a day of several false starts and much frustration. The top is not fully installed due to a series of small setbacks that have caused the day to drag on. The hardware supplied with the...

    Re: 2005 LJ Adventuring Build - Hard Top Part 1

    The hard top shipped from the manufacturer just before Christmas, so I've been checking the tracking notices a couple times per day to catch when it arrived in Denver. The shipment was destined for...

    Re: Yankee Hill 12/30

    Looks like a great time. I'm sad I missed out on the fun, but I was rewarded with delivery notice of my hard top so I spent the evening picking that up from the freight depot.

    Looking forward to...

    Re: Mod For The Day

    Yes, it is an option. I have a 3d printer and could make a part, but I would need to make it in a food safe material and probably replace my brass printer nozzle with stainless steel for the task. ...

    Re: 2005 LJ Adventuring Build - Chromoly Axles

    I've seen a few axles and U-joints fail on the trail in the short time I've been wheeling. Fortunately none of these failures have been on my Jeep, but I expect someday to have a failure. I believe...

    Sounds similar to what I'm doing. When all of the parts arrive in a week-ish and I get everything assembled in the garage, I'll post some photos. Next weekend and the week after is shaping up to be...

    Re: Unusual wheeling destinations

    I see the Magruder report says "a Cadillac could drive it". I'll have to research LoLo further. Regardless, this looks like something that can't be firmly planned until spring or summer when we see...

    I've seen some old photos of chokecherry canyon on here in the gallery. It looks awesome. I think it'd be a fun couple day Moab alternative. I suppose I was thinking of through routes and...

    Re: Unusual wheeling destinations

    Interesting forest roads and public land to camp on through the route are the most I'm hoping for. If we find some real trails also, that would be a bonus. I'm not familiar with any of these states...
