the only thing ive ever had go wrong with my jeeps other than stuff I busted from stupidity or brute-forcing my way through a trail I shouldnt have been on were always cooling related or A/C related..

the fan clutches on TJ's were Terrible.. first thing I did when id buy a new TJ 4.0 was take out the fan clutch and "adjust" the temp to engage.. they werent shipped adjustable but "coaxing (ok bending)" the spring you could get it to engage at lower temperatures..

Cool idea. You threw me for a while with that license plate up there.

They arent as bright as i hoped but would be good enough to see. Might just put a couple more in.
Plates cover some of the rust areas i cut out. Appalachian engineering.

Nice rack, and I don't say that to just anybody.

It looks like your bus has been taking on more character since the photo on the left of your posts. That's looking good too.

Did you remove your hatch? I noticed you have the rack a little high apparently to allow normal hatch function.

No hatch yet. Still thinking about something. Main reason we left at that high is because I did not want to cut off the angled bracing for the legs and I wanted to put my PVC water tanks underneath. The rack is mostly for sleeping on when the four of us get Cabin Fever inside.

That's the perfect place for stargazing.

Is that a solar water heater in those pvc tanks?
