By watching "Kill Bill"??
This is one of my favorite threads on the site, love watching your adventures and I admire how you guys adapt and keep pushing forward. You are likely living some of the best memories that you will have in the future.
You might find some good info on this link, Redoval has pushed the 2wd platform farther than anyone else I am aware of. I tried followed him through Ocotillo Wells and can confirm that he punishes his van!

Tire pressure recommendations I have read here (from Bill Burke & John at Agile Off Road)

Not a lot to add, but what are you running for tire pressure? Dropping the tire pressure makes a night and day difference in my ride quality off road, especially with smaller washboard type stuff.
If Weldtech didn't custom spec your shocks, that could make a difference as well. I had my...
They were definitely talking about 1200 degree EGTS's, not 12k! 1200 is still pretty high for any length of time.

I purchased a brand new Aluminess tire carrier a few years ago, but I was never happy with it. It would loosen itself and rattle after fewer and fewer miles. I have read numerous threads on...

Much respect to you for your 8 years of JJ!
I started a few decades too late (especially for Berimbolos :unsure:), but I still LOVE it! I really enjoy the physical and mental aspects of it, but it's challenging keeping up with the younger guys sometimes.
The installation is pretty simple, the only "scary" part is drilling the holes in the floor. After it is physically mounted, it only needs power, ground and fuel. It shouldn't be too hard to install or find someone to do it for you.
My Buddy heater was nice for taking the chill off before...
I wonder if you have some other issue with your van that is causing the vibration? Have you checked tire balance, etc?
Who's lift kit do you have?
Are you running 35psi on the street? If so, that sounds pretty low. I run 55 in the front and 60 in the rear, unless airing down for off roading.
