thats what ive been thinking; maybe a 3' and some 265s with a nice set of shocks, and then a bit of belly armor. eventually, id tuck the tank and put the spare off the back.

I had a 2000 with the 4.0, and had to sell it to get a commuter car a few years back. well the commute shortened up, and the hunt was on. got it with 88k, one owner.

Check out ARB USA. They make one of the best awnings I've ever used.

There is a difference between spending a weekend camping and being at a remote site for a week or more. For me the difference is, I'm working, not camping. I have to have power, food prep and hygiene. Camping is fun; working, cooking and showering outside is not always feasible or enjoyable. If there is a sand storm outside I still have to eat and get work done. I need shelter.

Don't run HID's in those housings. All you're going to do is blind everyone.
Maybe I should install the HID's and then smoke the lenses.

I bought a set of ebay "smoked" headlights and marker lights. They had broken adjusters right out of the box (smoked?). I tried to return them and they sent a whole new set; also broken. Running stock replacement stuff now. I have some HID bulbs but have not installed them yet. The factory bulb holder-inners are all busted so I have not dealt with it yet.

I also ditched the halogen lights on the bumper and mounted some Vision-X led Transporters. They are a huge improvement!!

What you can't see in that shot is a heim joint and bracket that holds the end of the sector shaft in double shear. If you are going to push against the pitman arm it needs to be braced.

Thanks for the reply!

mvanhelden My expedition rigs, the drought here has expanded the reach, several rivers, probably 4-500 miles of stuff to explore, right out my back door.
