I was told I should do a build thread, i have had this project for a looong time, this was my first truck, I took my wife on our first date in this truck, it was my dads truck before me while I was growing up. I decided to do a body swap sometime in 2009, but a bad year in 2010 ( loosing two grandparents, a great grandma, and my father, as well as welcoming a second kid into our family took the wind out of my sail. I did work on it here and there over the years, but it has mainly been a looked over second thought. My kids are now at the age where they are starting to want to do stuff with friends over hanging with mom and dad, and I finally have the ambition to start working on the old girl again. So to keep me motivated and moving on...
The time has finally come! My new truck finally found its way home! It is a 2022 Ram Powerwagon. FULLY LOADED with every possible option minus a sunroof and ram boxes. That level 3 interior is almost too luxurious! Most of you are familiar with my love for Tacomas, so this new truck may seem a bit off beat for me. The truth is the Tacoma was an AMAZING off road rig, but we were bursting at the seams. Lately we had given up on camping whenever the whole family would be going, since it was too difficult to haul a full crews gear. I got sick of always feeling like our adventures were being limited by cargo space. I was having a hard time nailing down exactly what type of vehicle suited our needs. In hind sight it’s because our...

This little Tj is coming along, that big dent in the side is gone due to a friend in town, repainted the hood and part of side panel where the dent was, the paint didn't match to what I thought it would, but that's ok, it gives it character. Repainted the the fender flares black, looks so much better than it did. Put on some Rugged Ridge rockers on it, took the old front bumper off, working on building a new one. It has a cute 2" coil spacer lift, I swapped the tires I had on the XJ and put them on the TJ. I've put some quick disconnect sway bar links on her as well. The heater wasn't working very well, turns out the heater core was clogged inside the pipe and as well as the fins, cleaned it up just enough to get a welcome breeze of...
I joined the GXOR family . I picked up my 2008 Lexus GX470 in Dallas, TX and brought it back home to Oklahoma City, OK. Details of the rig: -130,000 miles -TB/WP, Front Brakes, Radiator, and Alternator were all replaced within the past 5K miles. (Update: TB/WP done incorrectly, had to have it redone 10/28/2021!) -lifetime Texas vehicle, so no rust at all. -No wrecks - Airbags work perfect Got it home and already did the first mod: running boards removed. Hopefully much more work to be done in the coming months/years. I have been working on this build for about 6 months so over the coming weeks I'll be catching this build thread up to where we are now!

I am new here but thought I would throw up some pictures of my latest Jeep build. It is not real time as I have owned it now for almost two years. I bought the Jeep with only 3208 miles on the odometer and commenced building my "Dream Jeep". This is my daily driver and weekend wheeler. On lift just before sitting it down with the 4" BDS Suspension Lift and 35" KM2 tires/ATX Crawl wheels. Backed outside the shop after just barely sitting her on the ground with new lift and tires/wheels. More to come as I dig through the pictures. Also pictured here is the Warn Rockcrawler bumper/Powerplant combination that I purchased used just to get me by until I could fabricated my own bumpers. Mike.
Many of you know that I sold my beloved CYJ last week and started down a new path for wheeling. I've reached the point in life where I wanted something more comfortable to wheel and really wanted to drive a Jeep around town again. Also wanted to do some scenic stuff and have a trip to Silverton planned later this year. A friend made me a good deal on a fairly well built 2007 JK Rubicon and so it begins. It has 61,000 miles, a 3.5" Full Traction lift and sporting 35" BFGs for now. Also has a Ripp Supercharger, Kilby On Board Air plumbed front and rear, and a few other goodies. One thing I'll be removing this weekend is a 13 gallon auxiliary gas tank that is filled through the regular gas cap with a separate gauge and transfer pump. Cool...

As it was from when I bought it in Sept of 2006. First trip to Rattlesnake Jan or Feb of 2007. ZJ is an Upcountry Laredo package, 4.0. Came with aftermarket wheels on 235/75-15s. After ths trip on Rattlesnake, I decided that 2' of lift and 31s would be perfect. Being a cheap Jeeper, and patient. I picked up a few things passed on by others. 2" budget boost pucks, Tuff Country fixed front lower control arms, and Teraflex adjustable uppers. I did swap in new bushings. So early November 2008, I lifted the ZJ 2" and added 31s. This is as it sits today. To me, it sat well, drove well, and with the home made lengthened sway bar lengths removed, flexed well. It was this rock on Rattlesnake that made me decide on my lift originally...

Well I'm going to keep the tj and build it, currently I think it has good bones but it does need some upgrades and some preventive maintenance done to it to make it trail worthy. I thought I would post on time as you all seems to know what to avoid and what is a worthy upgrade. So here is the current state of the Jeep.

I've been wheeling and building my XJ now for about 10 years, but have lately had the urge to build a buggy. It was something that I wanted to do, but I didn't think it was in the near future... until I found this guy A couple of text's and a trip with the trailer and it followed me home. I did a little trading, so its a cheap base to build off of. Got it home and started looking, was surprised to see how well it was set up Chevy TBI 4.3. Was running when the buggy was parted out, so hopefully wont be too bad to get running again. Set up for full hydro. Has the orbital valve, remote filter and cooler installed already. Ac compressor is converted for OBA. All the solenoids and valves seem to be there, its just a mater of...
I had alluded to an upcoming purchase in the past. I made the order in early September 2019 and on February 12, 2020 I arrived in Kansas City, Mo, headquarters of VanDOit and picked up my 2019 VanDOit LIV adventure van. I made a video of myself when I picked it up - I was pretty excited. I've also revised my blog, included the video and some additional photos which I'll repeat here. The chassis is a 2019 Ford Transit 350 high roof, long wheelbase (but not extended body) with a Quigley 4x4 conversion. Engine is the 3.5L ecoboost (which is actually pretty damn fast in this big machine). Full tow package including brake controller, limited slip rear diff, navigation, heated and electric custom leather front seats. I...
