    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    Does anyone with a gen 2 J30 top with factory solar have a pic of the pass through for the wiring and where it's located? I aquired a couple solar panels and I'm thinking about installeing them on my roof rack.

    American Safari JXL ....non responsive

    I've been watching that and time will tell as they just got them installed. I'm anxious to see how they hold up as well. There are a few things I like about the product, such as more interior space (who doesn't like that) and things I don't like the rear overhang and the weight so far from the...

    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    Does anyone know of a product that will take the scratch marks out of the bed liner material on a J30? My daughter drove the Jeep down the side of a tree last year in Moab and it didn't get through the bed liner but it did dull the finish where the limbs were. I believe I seen someone mention...

    Refrigerators

    I've never regretted it after the purchase. I have items now that were premium when new and they're still going strong. Quality often enough pays for itself!

    Refrigerators

    I thought I’d better update this thread. There was a good sale going on at Lolo overland over the weekend. It was good enough for us to decide to spend some of our savings and pick up an arb zero 47 quart fridge. With everything shooting up in price from inflation, our savings account sitting...

    Simple question regarding dual battery set-up, diagram: 2016 4Runner

    If you’d like an on the cheap option for isolating batteries, buy a golf cart relay and put it between the positive terminals on your batteries. Wire the small post up to ignition on and then it will be isolated when the truck is turned off and connected when on. There’s a thread here in expo...

    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    Thanks, I don't want or need to know everything about his personal life, I was just worried about him. I hope the family emergency ends well. Chris doesn't know me other than a brief encounter in Moab, but I've gotten to know him through the years watching his youtube videos.

    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    Does anybody have any info on Chris Shontz (venture4wd)? He hasn't posted a video in three weeks which isn't like him. I'm just wondering if he's okay if anyone knows or is close to him.

    Old man-big brakes

    I got a unique opportunity to test my brakes out recently when my wife got the exact model and year of JKU that I own, minus all of the aftermarket add ons. The Jeeps tested were both 2018 JKUR recon editions produced in the same month. The option packages are nearly identical. Her Jeep has 3.73...

    Titan Trail Trekker II and AEV Fuel Caddy Condensation?

    Dan, I bought a used Jeep for my wife recently that had the AEV tank installed. It didn't have an ounce of water in it and it did have some sun fade so it was not very new. The Jeep came from BC and then it was imported to Everett for a while. I think that if condensation was a real problem...

    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    I hope everything goes smoothly! I sure wish I was closer by your route to Seattle, and your Jeep was a JKU. That way I could intercept you on the way through and I'd loan you a top. I found one used and put it on for my trip to Portland. If this is your plan, pray for sunny weather and good luck!

    trying to work out how to Jeep camp with my 5 year old and 8 month old

    My brother built his own and has had many great adventures in it! I'm not going to tell you it was easy but if you set your mind to it you can do it too! I'm extremely impressed with his talent and took a couple shots of it while it's parked in my field. I just gotta show them off and brag on him!

    trying to work out how to Jeep camp with my 5 year old and 8 month old

    Here's what I did to my JKU. It sleeps four, but I've got an Ursa Minor so I'm kinda cheating. It probably won't work for you but it will maybe give you an idea or two!

    Land Rover ideas for Jeeps

    Very clean! These would work well for a solar panel as well.
