    Quick little diy table with my hdx storage box

    I like it. You can bring a lot less if you can use everything multiple different ways.

    2000 Jeep XJ

    It's all about the rust... I did a ton of work to mend drip-line rust along my roof and it's coming back again. Once it gets going, it's insidious. As others have mentioned: check the floor-pans, behind the upper windshield gasket, rocker panels (below each door) and behind the rear plastic...

    Camp Chair Recommendations

    Another vote for KERMIT! So solid and stable that you can lean on one armrest with your entire body weight to aid getting in and out as easily as any camp chair I've ever used. It feels more like campaign furniture than a camp chair. I own other chairs (helinox, crazy creeks, etc.) and only...

    Just Downsized to a Renegade (build and trips)

    Really slick work! The mounting frame is ingenious. I'd love to see a close-up photo of the flip-out work surface over the stove. I'll be curious if it impedes access to the fridge and if that ends up being a nuisance over time. Really well done, cheers.

    please tell me about the rear hatch "spoiler" trim on the 2dr. It looks pretty sharp with an integrated light.

    Jeep XJ Westfalia Camper Build - The "Jeepagon" V2

    I like the pop-top, good job. I'm curious about how you attached the fabric tent to the roof of the jeep and if you manage to keep water out completely.

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    Along those lines, I've always admired the flip-up hatch windows made for Land Cruisers by Kevin Rowland at wagongear: Great OEM look with improved functionality.

    XJ/ZJ as budget off roader

    Typical rust areas I've seen on XJs: rocker panels are the worst culprit, roof drip rail, above the windshield (especially behind the rubber glass trim), floorboards: especially the front passenger floorboard because some years have a leak stemming from the cowl

    XJ/ZJ as budget off roader

    You said "cheap, tow vehicle for easy passes." Hard to beat the XJ for that. It's incredibly light, incredibly cheap and remarkably capable. They built millions, parts are cheap and you'll find one in just about every junkyard if you want to pull parts. If you're just using it to explore...

    JK dual swing out rear bumper options?

    Wow, incredibly comprehensive feedback, jscherb, thank you! I agree that swing-out carriers are a nuisance because they impede access to the tailgate, especially dual-swing. My search for a dual-swing began with the desire for a swing-carrier for the chuck-box that was mounted on the...

    JK dual swing out rear bumper options?

    The kaymar bumper is just the ticket. Thanks BradS. If only it was easy to procure in North America... As for why I'm asking the question, here is the premise: I'd like to mount an aluminum chuck-box on the rear of a JK, such that it could be used without being removed or unmounted, and...

    JK dual swing out rear bumper options?

    Anyone know of a ready-to-order dual swing-out rear bumper option for the JK? I've seen them on wider vehicles: Tacoma's, LR4's, etc. but can't find anything for the JK, perhaps because of its narrower rear profile. I did find this picture through a google search but can't source the product:

    Stoked about the new Gofast camper

    Security Question: It's apparent in the walk-around video that the side panels lock, but I don't see how the pop-top locks. Does the pop-top lock too?
