    Sources for hardware

    I was able to find my stuff on Amazon, but you will need to discern quality hardware from cheap knock-offs sometimes.

    XK interior cargo space mods

    Looks great! Are the wooden legs from an old easel or telescope or something?

    Fridge inside or outside?

    I keep it in the vehicle, in the back. It doesn't throw that much heat, but it keeps the unit out of the dust and elements, which I expect to increase it's usable life. When it's not going adventuring, my fridge (ARB50) is happy on the enclosed porch keeping my adult beverages cold and handy.

    Overlanding / Off-Roading Stuff from 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

    Yes - he's my uncle! He's still in town, as is a lot of family. Trailer is light and pulls great - it's nice that it can be maneuvered around by hand (loaded!) at a campsite if need be. I would like to keep it, but the wife doesn't like it in the yard. Trailer has pintle hitch. It is titled in...

    Sorry everyone - got stuck in Florida with a bunch of weather events in the NE corridor. Back now. I replied to all PMs. Tailgater is sold pending funds, with a couple folks in backup.

    Overlanding / Off-Roading Stuff from 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

    I recently did a return-to-stock on my 2015 JKUR and traded it for a 2018 Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, so most of this stuff won't fit anyway. Sony AV100 Head Unit ($250 shipped CONUS) price adjusted (can use apple CarPlay or Android Auto) - includes install kit for JK/JKU, RadioPro4 (retains...

    lunchbox-ers any opinions experiences with the many brands?

    While not in a mitsu, but I installed an EZ Locker (rear diff only - front was left open) in my 1997 Jeep Wrangler by myself - took about 1.5 hours to do start-to-finish and made a HUGE difference in performance off road. It did have bad manners in icy/snowy surfaces, though, as the rear...

    You'll likey want to drain all the fluids and inspect everything before venturing out, but here is a good video to determine your gear ratio:

    New Jeep JKUR

    AEV is hard to beat... there are cheaper alternatives out there, but if you want something VERY livable and performant, the 2.5 dual-sport by AEV will rock 35" tires.

    Hi-lift / shovel box for roof rack

    install some quick fists inside for the hi-lift and shovel - they'll keep them secure and rattle free - can also leave some room for recovery straps, gloves, etc. Nice job.

    Replace trailer tires due to age not wear?

    Assuming these are not matched to the towing vehicle - get 3 new tough tires that fit the budget. Trailer tires can look cool, but at their best, they simply provide flotation - tread has no real value in the equation, other than scuff/puncture resistance, as they simply spin idle... no...

    I'm liking the new 2018 Jeep Rubicon, talk me out of it.

    If you don't mind an occasional wrinkle to be worked out (as a new model) go for it. Good design, lots of the systems have already been vetted on other models in the FCA line, BTW. Nena Barlow is from "Nena Knows Jeeps" from the 4x4 magazines -...

    They should all be waterproof - they are tents, and tentage needs periodic re-treatment of seams, but the fabric should shed water just fine. I've never seen a RTT that requires a rain fly.

    Opinions: Pioneer tool mounting

    I wouldn't want anything on my hood, but I prefer not to see stuff in my line-of-sight How about on the liftgate?

    Military Field Desk Jeep JK Cargo Drawer System

    great idea! BTW - rub a candle on the rails for smooth drawer sliding. Pro-tip from someone who lives in an old house with occasionally sticky wooden doors :-)

    Action Camper JKU Conversion

    Just figure out for $30k do you want something built into your jeep or trailer your camper? While they both have their merits, not only that is a $30k investment you'll never recoup, but it's also tied to that make/model. Just food for thought.
