Hey, new to overlanding, but not off roading.. Have had various jeeps over years, 1950 ,1972 commando, 1980CJ and now a 2002 TJ i picked up a few months ago. I went over everything electrical and mechanical to start and now my build begins!

Rig: 2002 TJ (Basically stock with a small body and suspension lift)
Why: I love going off road and instead of flying to a destination i want to drive and experience the journey.
Me: Im an electrical Engineer for a electrical equipment manufacturer for past 26 years , which absolutely helps with electrical problems that occur usually when you least expect.. I truly enjoy being off road and navigating thru what ever challenges come up, instead of having to rush home my plan is to spend time where ever i am with my overlanding Rig.
Greeting! From the New Jersey Coastal Region.

How’s it going everybody! I’m Chris from Mississippi and I’m super excited to be a part of this group. I got a 2015 TRD Tacoma at the beginning of this year and I’m hoping to have it mostly finished by March of 22 for my Moab trip. Hope to meet some of you on journeys in the future!

1999 F350 4X4.png2008 F550 Dana Super 60 and S110 axles.png2006 F550 2X4 6.0L.png



Hi there, Trickster here. My first thought was to upgrade my 1999 7.3L / ZF-6 to 2008 F550 coil suspension.

As I researched the pros and cons I realized that the 1999 F350 frame was not reinforced to accommodate new stress point that the radius arms place behind the existing rear mount of the front springs.

So I bought a 2006 F550 2wd with a bad trans to stand up to the rigors that I will be putting this rig through.

As much as I love my 1999 with the legendary 7.3, the manual trans and electrically actuated NP273 transfer case, I need a better option for the purpose that this rig will be engineered to serve.

I will post progress pics in the appropriate section of the Forum so that whomever is interested can follow my progress.

Thanks.
