  1. The Base Camp

    I skipped last year because the year before no vets showed. Sounds like they figured out the problem with the $10 deposit.

    My OEM was the squeakiest contraption on earth. Do you still have the stock windshield header? I got this for $360 a while back when they had a sale. http://a.co/8BPBTdk Yeah, it leaks a little, but I don't have carpet anyway.
  3. Cheap Mods

    First mod anyone with a pre-2017 JK should make. Not sexy but safe. The 2017's saw the introduction of LED units that look okay, but I've never driven them at night.
  4. Jeep and 4x4 Poker Run - September 30, 2017

    The New Jersey Direct Install Program will pay for 70% of all your HVAC and LED lighting (material AND labor). Want me to set you up? I think I saw Runnemede on the DI list....
  5. CONTEST - Help Design RT3's Shirt

    I think Tom is on to something. Except at each hour mark is the grille of a different Jeep. You'd have to include all the Wranglers back to the flat fenders plus XJ, ZJ, WJ, Wagoneer, Comanche, etc. It shows inclusiveness...if you drive a Jeep that is.
  6. I'll go in on a group buy if it'll help.
  7. Does the Boat Medic kit have pretty much everything from across all the kits?

    The CMM clamp is gigantic and I've never had an an issue with it. I don't know why they don't show it side-by-side with a Synergy clamp, but it's not even in the sport, let alone the same league.

    Yeah, internal bypass. Not as sexy as other setups, but we'll see how these work. @GlobexMike has a set on his Taco. Now, completely different setup, I know, but they were damn amazing. That thing could hit trails at 35 mph where I'm rattling my fillings at 18. There's a whole new Jeep coming out and I'm not going to plunk down for CO's and bypasses on all four corners yet. @Iggy already has dibs on the JRI's if he still wants them.

    So, next JKX has a September 9 rally point of Hannibal, MIssouri, which is home to a badass offroad park. The end point is New Orleans. Don't know where we'll be going in between. Going to be a different trip than Alaska. There we had 15 rigs total. This will be 30 rigs. Will be happy to see some folks from the AK trip again. Had to do some significant repairs on the rig. All wear and tear from abuse and big boy running gear, but the big mods are Clayton Pro Series 3-link up front and Pro Series rear arms. The Pro Series have Johnny Joints at both ends on all arms except the rear uppers. Some might say this will increase vibration over the other arms, which have a bushing on one end. I would say, I'm running 40's on beadlocks and whatever vibrations there are won't mean a thing. The other mod is swapping the JRI 2.0 Adjustables for ARB BP-51 units which are 2.5" and adjustable for both rebound and compression. I just needed to go with a bigger shock and the ability to adjust for both values on the fly without having to take anything apart was very appealing. One change will be temporary. It was requested that we run sponsor wheels and tires. Nitto sending 40's. KMC is sending Machete beadlocks which will be powdercoated Revolution Gear green. Once the trip is over, they'll end up on the Globex shop rig. Should be fun.

    We'll talk. Direct lumens can be tough on the eyes, you might want some uplight too. If you're going to have a vehicle in the air on a lift, it poses another challenge as nothing from above will help you from the below. I have plenty of cool stuff though. Talk to me before you wire anything, however, as you're going to want to use 5-conductor MC-PCS cable in order to get dimming to easily work. Easiest thing for me to do is come down when the roof and walls are up which I'll happily do. One thing I'd do if I were you, is get a wobble light. I'll help during construction and you can put it under a car in the air: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000I2MVJI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_dp_T2_471DzbEJKJPR6
