That old CJ-6 is right up my alley. Even has a "barn door".
That makes sense and I think that would work well on the flat metal bumpers of a Land Rover or a TJ.The ladder is always on a firm level surface.
There's a group on Facebook devoted to lengthening YJ's that way: https://www.facebook.com/groups/YJUnlimitedbuilds. It's a private group but if you ask to join you might find a lot of good ideas there; lengthening a TJ wouldn't be much different than lengthening a YJ (and BTW if there were such as kit as you wish, the one kit could be made to work with both YJ's and TJ's).I wish someone would make a stretch kit ("TJ-6") for the TJ that would let you use an LJ top.
Maybe for tall gorillas like you and I? Install a batwing/270d awning a little higher up to have more headroom?I've installed my RTT to open off the back and off the side, but never this way:
I'm trying to come up with reasons to install it to open over the front like that and haven't come up with any other than it reduces the overall footprint of the vehicle + RTT when set up. Anyone have a reason this would be a better setup than off the side or the back?
I'm looking forward to these being released; I can only imagine that the price will be such that it is high enough to pay for all that R&D (and hopefully survive), but also high enough that I can't afford one.Back in November I posted about the Ineos Grenadier, a 4x4 from a new company that picks up where the Defender left off (https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/land-rover-ideas-for-jeeps.218029/page-25#post-2854710).
4WD Magazine (from Canada) recently posted this video about it:
Not really a Land Rover Idea for Jeeps, this is more like a Land Rover Idea not for Land Rover .
The water tank is fitted in the spare compartment under the floor (notice the spare now on the roof rack), so it's not truly under the vehicle, but it's an interesting implementation nonetheless.GO WITH THE FLOW: the 70-litre fresh water tank is fitted internally, so there's no risk of freezing in harsh winters. There's an external locking filler in the rear quarter panel.
Unfortunately there's no further information in the article about the water system, nor are there any further photos than the ones above.There's hot and cold running water. A heat exchanger in the engine bay feeds hot water to the tapon the rear door, while a connector on the front bumper receives a shower connector. Temperature is controlled via the Disco's heater controls while the engine is running, meaning Katrina can enjoy a hot shower any time, and literally anywhere.
Doesn't someone already make one, that fits into the rear floorboard area?
Either one would be good for low CG.
Here's an idea... if you've done a 60% delete and have a compartment on the floor like mine:I had one of the frontrunner water tanks in my tacoma and had a 12v push button faucet hooked up. It holds 11 gallons which was great. sad to say with the 60% delete I have on the jeep this will never be an option for me
