      Went off-roading for the first (real) time last weekend.

      With no lift, stock highway tires, minimal upgrades, she kept up with lifted rigs with huge tires all day like it was nothing. She literally took everything I threw at her.

      Only problem was a bit of mud in the radiators which caused a bit of overheating, but what a champ

      People are always surprised by what a stock Jeep can do.

      I had a dump truck run a red light.


      So I bought a new one.

      Any XJ guys here venture in the world of double din radios?

      I'm about to start the project. It's takes cutting, molding, blending and painting to get it in there but I'm up for the challenge.

      I'm using a adapter from a 2004 Grand Prix, when I'm done I'm hoping to get results as good as this guy did.

      WTF do you need a radio for? I don't think mine has worked in the last 10 years.

      Pics from last summer, working on putting D60s under it now. Still sitting on 36" TSLs though.

      I'm dailying my XJ for the time being, I don't think I'll be able to get another fun daily and keep the XJ for winter/camping till next year.

      All I wanted was an ipod hookup for podcasts but my god I was horrified by the single din offerings out there. It seems if you want a simple, clean easy to use single din unit you have to pay alot more for it. The double din I got is really simple and clean looking.

      I'm still waiting on my adapter kit to get here, I'll post up progress pics and let you guys know what a pain in this ass this may be if anyone was wondering what it takes to fit a double din unit.

      Got it in this morning. It's honestly not that hard, you just have to have the right tools and the balls to start trimming and notching inside the dash. Some other installs had to cut into the HVAC venting up top to get clearance. I wanted it to look less jammed in there when it's all molded so I mounted it a little lower. That way when I cut into the dash trim the space between the HVAC vents, and the controls down below will be even.

      I know some people had to fab a bracket in order to use the factory mounting holes, but the kit I bought allowed me to use both with very little problems. It's in there very solid, the wiring isnt all jammed, I was able to get it behing the HVAC controls so it has plenty of room. Only issue like most radio installs is the factory radio ant. hookup, they never give enough wire, stingy bastards. I didn't snap in the trim surround yet, so it looks a bit off, I just placed it on for the picture.

      Next up is cutting into the dash trim and molding in the kit. This is going to be the hardest part. I'm still deciding on what products to use. I was able to find the factory mopar agate color trim paint for when it's all done. It should look nearly factory, hopefully.

      Here is my 2009 JK Unlimited Rubicon sporting and Eezi-Awn rooftop tent mounted to a Gobi Stealth roof rack.

      I'm looking to get a TJ inline 6 4.0 wrangler in 5 speed just to daily and not care about getting scratches, wheel rash, etc. How is the reliability on the car and what should I look for when I'm checking one out? Thanks in advance!

      I just got a 07' Jeep Liberty, this is the limited, so it came with the 17'' alloy wheels.
      The point is that the tyres are almost worn and I would like to ask any reccomendation in tyre size for my jeep.
      This is my wife daily, and I just want something dopper for her.

      It runs 235/65-17 Goodyear Wrangler HP...

      Took the grille and headlight buckets out today for sanding. They will see paint tomorrow.

      I've been having a weird problem with the turn signals. The driver's front signal is not working after replacing the bulb and flasher/relay under the dash. Not sure what's up

      Take a look on the harness and in the socket, lokk for rusty connectors... clean it or replace socket.

      BTW, your 2 dr cherokee looks so clean..!!

      The Hummer wasn't in out group. He was just a used car guy and his buddies trying to drive an H3 with bald tires off a cliff at Wheeler lake. We stopped him, but I'm not sure we should have.

      The edge is really soft and he was almost over. It's hard to spot, but you can barely see my blue winch line in the pic. It couldn't have been a more stereotypical Hummer moment!

      17x7 5x4.5 Mopar steel wheels from a 2006ish Dodge Magnum.

      Yep. It's my understanding that the Trails are legal. The legalities of the Road are discussed in the PA section of JeepForum.

      trails, trails, and more trails. Thats about it. You might find a bar or two but otherwise its all just trails, mudpits, hill climbs, 4-wheeler trails, and some rock crawling. Theres also patchs of sand, coal soot, and a river or two to cross. I never go anywhere but there as i havnt found any where else local that i liked as much. I go up on a friday and camp in the woods until sunday. They have 300+ rig trail rides on holidays and theres always some locals out on the weekends. I have been going for probably about 7 years now and not once have i seen or heard about anyone getting busted for it. Hell alot of the guys drive on the road with no plates there

      Edit check out youtube for trail ride videos theres tons. of big trucks and all

      trails, trails, and more trails. Thats about it. You might find a bar or two but otherwise its all just trails, mudpits, hill climbs, 4-wheeler trails, and some rock crawling. Theres also patchs of sand, coal soot, and a river or two to cross. I never go anywhere but there as i havnt found any where else local that i liked as much. I go up on a friday and camp in the woods until sunday. They have 300+ rig trail rides on holidays and theres always some locals out on the weekends. I have been going for probably about 7 years now and not once have i seen or heard about anyone getting busted for it. Hell alot of the guys drive on the road with no plates there

      Edit check out youtube for trail ride videos theres tons. of big trucks and all

      Difficulty ranges from easy to difficult depending where you go there and if you know the trails. I warn you now, scope any pit before entering unless you see someone go through it as there are some that will swallow your rig and you but look harmless. Alot of it is nice clay up there and real soupy. Step in it and lose your boot. The main trails are easy riding and you could even take a car down some if you wanted (ive seen it done at highspeeds ) Pretty much everyone goes there and gets trashed. As far as directions hop on 61n and ride it all the way up. Go past old 61 and its like i wana say 20 minutes or so past mt carmel. Once you get up there, theres locals that will help you out and stuff but dont go solo. Very small world. Glad to see another local on here. (95% of these pictures dont show up for me) whats your rig? Also a heads up, if your rolling on some a/t's that arent very many plys then i would recomend bringing plugs and a pump as theres some debris up there from the locals. I cut 3 sidewalls on my 35x12.50's but plugged them to get me home. I now ride on 35x10.50 boggers which are 6 ply so i no longer have to worry about that.
