    Did you hike the lighthouse trail while out there? It's definitely my favorite hike in the park, though there are plenty of other cool places to explore too....

    Ford Escape e/x Build

    Glad you are back among us.......I always look forward to your posts. The bracket design looks great, will be nice to see the whole rack mounted up on your rig. They say necessity is the mother of all invention......its also a great source of frustration and profanity:sombrero: Sorry to hear...

    Jeep Base Vehicle Selection for First NEWB Overland Build

    In a WJ, the Laredo package nets you cloth seats. As far as size goes, the WJ is smaller than it seems. Slightly larger than the XJ and yet smaller than a JKU. I regularly travel with JKU guys and have no problems fitting down the same trails. As for ZJs, they are definitely a good candidate...

    Jeep Base Vehicle Selection for First NEWB Overland Build

    I would also encourage you to take a second look at WJs. As stated above, there are now plenty of options for lifts, gears, bumpers, racks, etc....You can still find very solid low mileage WJs for around 3-5k leaving you a lot of budget to build. WJs are bigger than an XJ (while still smaller...

    Dilemma : Keep Modded XJ or Get JK Rubicon

    I too was just in this same boat. I have an 03 WJ which I built and love dearly, but it is definitely getting a little long in the tooth, not to mention sometimes I would love to have a newer fresher rig. I looked at a bunch of possible replacement vehicles and very nearly almost pulled the...

    Pro-4X Build Thread

    1st of all, fantastic looking truck. I just read through the build and it is very well laid out. Good job there. 2nd, how many miles do currently have on the truck and what ballpark figure would you hope to get for it? Thanks.

    Auto trader is being a jerk right now and I cant share the link, but there is a 2006 with 30k miles (not a misprint) for 29.9k at Surf City Nissan in CA. Really clean good looking truck (tempted to call about it myself:) )

    2004 Grand Cherokee WJ Columbia Edition Build

    oh and I meant to ask, where did you get the led replacement dome lights? Those look great and have to be 100 times better than what is stock in there..

    2004 Grand Cherokee WJ Columbia Edition Build

    Yes I run OME HD springs front and rear on my WJ and have for 4 years. They are great. Replace your factory isolators when you swap to the new springs. You will net an honest 3 inches of lift and the jeep will ride much better. Plan on running an adjustable trac bar up front to center your...

    1994 ZJ build turned into a WJ build.

    Awesome find; always good to see another WJ saved from a life spent at the mall. They really do make a great DD/ Weekend explorer..

    2014/15 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk vs 2015 Toyota 4Runner Trail edition

    I believe a much better comparison would be the grand cherokee trailhawk vs the 4 runnner; much more apples to apples....I would love to see an unbiased objective test pitting the 2 against each other and see what comes out on top. I agree though with many of the above comments that the...

    S10 Build getting started

    Great looking ride there. Will definitely be following along on this one. Reminds me of my 1984 gmc S15 extended cab I had in high school and college. It had the 2.8 and 700r4 which when it grenaded I swapped in a 5spd..loved that truck.
