Nwgs Jeep'n Thread

Ok now that I'm a Big You Tube Star. I thought it might be time to start a Jeep'n thread.
I love my motorcycle more than any machine in my life.
But I can't take my wifelet on it. Well I could but it has always been my thing. She tried. Its didn't take.
Jeep'n is something I do with her and the dogs.
I would like to see your Jeeps and hear about your Jeep'n adventures.


So without further ado. Please join me in appreciating our Jeeps.



Yesterday. Reiter Pit Washington. Very popular riding area.

I have this cage in the back. It was suppose to be storage for stuff. But along with the wifelet comes the dogs. We lost our dog Teena 2 years ago.
But Buddy Lee got lonely. So along comes Dayzee. You will be hearing alot more about Dayzee.

Here they are just hanging out in the cage. Blankets keep them comfy. I put the green plastic around the cage when we first got Dayzee. So she couldn't climb out.






Here's the end of that obstacle I was on in the other video.

I was on the winch here. The thing blew up at the end of this tow.








Now here is the view of the same obstacle with WCJeep at the wheel. This is a view from the back.

You might think we are a bit crazy. WC has his 2 year old in the jeep with him. She did the Rubicon with us when she wasn't even 6 mo's old. She is a cutie and a real Jeep'er.
Funny thing, for about an hour after crossing these rocks she kept saying Jeep Fall Daddy. Jeep Fall Daddy.

My wife is a great spotter. She likes to drive also and is very good.,

The cage in the back is where the Dogs ride.








Funny though if she thinks we are gona tip over. I end up in the Jeep alone.

Talking Real Jeeps are home built and banged up.........

Howdy All,

This is a thread I can relate to, if I knew how to do it I could throw HOURS of video of my Jeeping misadventures up here for you.

Here's some photos of my Jeep that has spent many days roaming around the Rieter Pit area and the State of Washington.







A few more photos here,

Any Nor-Wetters looking for a street legal mini-monster this rig is for sale, $6,000.00 you can't even buy the running gear for that.

Hey Jeepsters.... Mind if I chime in with a question?

I am looking for a metal rock grill for a 7" light, preferably one without a logo (PIAA, HELLA etc)

Any good sources for this type of item?

Those 44 u-joints and axle ears will snap like a fresh pretzel, if you make use of that motor when in some hard stuff. Why didn't you go 60 front?

Thoughts on the J-10 pickup

SWMBO found a J-10 on Craigslist. Looks pretty sweet. What's the story on those?

What I know about it: 1985 model, V-8, auto, 4x4, leaf springs all around

What I don't know: What size engine, how many gears in the transmission, what axles...

I'm checking jeepforums for info.
