    My Case for the 5.9L Grand Cherokee (ZJ)

    A few have asked (and many more wondered, I'm sure) why I would invest all this time and money into the Grand Cherokee (ZJ) platform. Let me start by saying, it would not be my first choice if it were my daily driver, or if I had kids. I'd want something newer, nicer, and bigger. However, as a...

    Why Overland Bound ROCKS!!!

    This is my story, let's hear yours! Yesterday, while driving back from the British Columbia Overland Rally, my Jeep died. I had it towed to a Jeep dealership in Tacoma, WA. I wrote a post about it, and commented that I thought it might be the ECM, and because that part has been discontinued...

    Looking for advice...

    I'm not finding what I want on the market, which has got me considering building one myself. Here's the concept... A 4x8 trailer simular to this... But instead of a roof, cut the bottom our of one of these... and use it as the roof. The idea being, you could still sleep in it with the...

    Kinetic Rope

    Watched @O.Dfj 's rope in action, and decided it was a must-have piece of kit. Soooo much more effective than a tow strap. 1"x 30' with a 31,500lb capacity.

    Awning alternatives...

    Besides being expensive, and adding more weight up top, sometimes "next to the rig" is not the best place (view) to hang out. I'm thinking about alternatives to the typical vehicle awning (a place to get out of the sun, and rain). What do you think of this?... The dark panel is removable, or...

    Where to mount MaxTrax.

    I've only seen this done once in person, but I'm seriously considering putting them on the hood. It's the only place on the rig where they'll be easy to get to and aren't in the way. Any reason this is a bad idea? I don't care if it looks weird. Form follows function.
