Anyone ever get into muddin'? I need to take my old Jeep out more often.
I'm more into trails and crawling. But, I'll still get into some holes every now and then. It's hard to stop once you get into it, especially if some of your buddies go out often.
Slightly on topic . . . but some retard friends decided they were gonna try and leap frog down the switchbacks at 3AM this weekend. Needless to say this is from the morning after and we had to go back and get them that night because the ranger started sliding down through the gravel above the drop off. Had to pull it back up with chains the next day. Even if they had survived the 15ft drop, the other side of the road we're looking up from is about a thousand ft drop.
I wheel in Texas alot, ive been to Utah, and Arkansas. I got a 1974 FJ-40 in the works.
I just saw this Tug, how's that handle on the road without steering stabilizers? I want to do alot more to my TJ, but it's still my everyday driver, so i doesn't make much since.
This isnt your average TJ, everything is redone. That steering arm is some cold treated shit that will bend and go back 600 something titanium. Thats an everyday driver too. Pumpkins are shaved and redone. with dana 60 internals. But it doesnt need stablizers with that expensive as fuck steering arm.
One of the 3 1940s Willys Jeeps my Dad and Uncle have restored. Driven to the top of a pretty steep hill in Colorado.
Willys are awesome. We use this one at our Arkansas lease.
I always went to Uwharrie when I had my jeep. Mostly trails but you can find some mud. Sucks pretty bad washing that shit off and out.
Getting a Scout II to put a Cummins 6 cylinder diesel in over the summer. I've got an old Cherokee 4.0 right now, but it's getting tired to the point that it's probably not coming out of the mud if I take it in again.
It happens to old jeeps. I had an '84 jeep wagoneer that basically just shit out like this. The 5.9 was strong as hell til young Eddie got ahold of it. It just slowly died to the point it would hardly accelerate, even on the highway. Lifts make this happen faster from my experiences.
In the 80's jeep was still AMC, which was going under fast, so basically they were buying leftover shit from ford/dodge/chevy. That's always been a huge problem, not just when it comes to finding parts, but stuff just shits out on them.

Get on my corndog.
If anyone is looking for a rig, I can hook you up. 97 Lexus LX450 with step sides removed, Old Man Emu 3" lift, 33" Mickey Thompson Baja ATZs. Solid ride. Farty stickers and such.
After spending a few days taking apart the dash and cleaning the inside out, I do not regret a thing.
Roll on over
Post some pictures if you got any
