    Help needed with Jeep JK Storage Drawers

    I would move the compressor to somewhere a little more out of the way. Could easily get a typical drawer set up that mount the compressor under the roll bar in the truck area with a little bit a bracket work. Compressor on one side tank on the other. Would clear up a lot of usable space. As we...

    2007+ Tahoe/Yukon thoughts?

    If you goto a 2500 suburban you get an iron block 6.0 and no fuel management. Granted the 6.0 in the suburban is what I consider a little underpowered for towing a 8k trailer it should do ok.

    2005 ish Burban vs. 2010 + Tundra CrewMax with cap

    Had an 08 tundra now have a 08 suburban 2500. For 5 people plus animals suburban hands down. The truck bed is nice for truck things but nothing beats the interior space you get with a suburban.

    The Pioneering Spirit's Expedition JKU Build

    Makita LXT-407 Toolset.

    I've used the making 189 stuff at work, have had 1/2"impacts so hot you couldn't touch them without leather gloves, in the rain, under water, scorching sun, and everything in between. Never had one give up. Just wish the big 1/2 gun had a bit more power like the Milwaukees do.

    Which suspension on my JK for overland use?

    The rears were not the triple rates. Fronts are, but the rear when I bought the kit were still linear springs. Much happier with the ome's in the rear. Jeep fully loaded plus a tire carrier with 10 gallons of fuel on it just didn't pose well with the rk springs and all that weight.

    Which suspension on my JK for overland use?

    I personally run ome heavy rears and still on rk 2.5" front springs which will probably get changed out for ome medium heavys eventually. Rk springs just couldn't take the weight of the jk loaded down. Sagged pretty good with just camping gear and the tent tailet really dropped it to the bump stops.

    Which (metal) stock are you using?

    What I have on hand typical and for the most part it's .120 wall tubing and 1/8" flat stock in various widths. These handle most of my needs, anything with a lot of planing will usually get its own trip to the metal yard. For my next rack build on the rear of my jk will mainly be built out of...

    Rightline Gear?

    I've got the roll bar bags. Work great solid construction and seals well. Had them on my rear bumper for a week in moab, and if any over you know that red dust it gets everywhere. Everything in the bag stayed clean and dry.
