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?

Now I can explore, bike, jeep, hike. Well, on the weekends.
It's a nice dream to do what he does. I hope he makes a bundle. Maybe some movie guy will pay him millions for the story.

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?

Looks like a helluva lot of fun!

I've been in some hard rock crawling & the axle held up great, my front diveshaft on the other hand twisted & snapped. when I ordered my axles back around 96 a 60 rear 44 front was considered bulletproof up to a 38 inch tire combo. besides it was $7500 Canadian delivered to my door, kinda blew the budget. The guys at Dynatrac advised me on the 44 saying the 60 was overkill & much, much heavier, not needed for a lightweight jeep

I've got pics of that breakage day, but they're on my old puter & don't have a networking setup. No idea how to transfer images to my new one

No dude that's totally cool. I thought about that myself before posting this pic. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. But Reiter is State owned land. This river crossing is part of the trail system and approved to run on.
I also crossed rivers twice on the Fordyce Trail. There is a Rubicon crossing at Rubicon springs.
Wouldn't do it if it weren't part of the trail system.

It all depends on what you do with it, really.
There's a big difference in the hardcore 4x4 world between 10 years ago and now, as you know.
The important thing is to know what you're capable of and to have fun with it.

Even an anvil has it's limits.
