Halley - '17 WK2 Trailhawk Overland Build

2180miles

Endurance Adventuring
Are you using another platform for documenting the build & travels or just nothing new to report?
Nothing new, and not documenting anywhere else! We moved to Raleigh, NC from Boston last summer and I had to close my business due to Covid, so we've been home more and just at a different place now than we were two+ years ago when this build was really underway. There's also something to be said for the fact that there's only so much I can do to the platform. I've had moments where I've thought about selling it and picking up a new project, but my wife is hesitant to do that since we love the WK2 and it's our best/largest road trip vehicle.

All that said, I do have a great trip video from a winter 2019 adventure we did... I should post that!

Checking in, 8 months later. You still have Halley? I’ve always appreciated your writeups and posts. I still have my 2014 Overland Diesel, which just rolled 97,000 miles. I’ve decided to keep it for 2 more years, to give to my then 16-yr old son. I ordered a Wrangler 392 last month to “tide me over” with a new ride until I get another GC in 2024; my 2012 fully-built JKUR is for sale now. I’m so bummed that there will be no more diesel, as I love this engine for towing (boat, toy hauler, and the JK to events) and day-to-day gas mileage. It’s been a great ride.

I saw you had to close your business. I hope you guys are doing well and that you’re back at whatever you’re doing, dreaming of your next project. Thanks again for the most valuable info on the web about WK2s. Bob Holthaus - St. Louis, MO
