Far as I know we are camping at the base of the Kaner Trail. Just past the bridge.
Not sure what I'm taking yet.

Need some advice from the Jeep folks around here...

Found a 1985 CJ7 locally that I'm seriously considering...new transmission, but the engine has 180,000 miles on it (http://missoula.craigslist.org/cto/1925588835.html). The seller is asking $4k; would I be crazy to offer him $2,500 or $3,000, and walk away if he wants more?

'87 was the first year for the 4.0 inline six in Jeeps. AMC designed engine. If it starts easy and doesn't smoke other than a puff or so at start up there's life left in it. The 4.0 is legendary and goes 250K+ routinely. An associate has a Cherokee with one that supposedly has 400K on it. Go fer it if you want a fun toy and are handy with a wrench.

Quick question for you jeep nuts.

I'm looking to pick up a used jeep to go screw around in the AZ desert with. I am not going to want to climb up a sheer rock wall.

I'm thinking '03-'06 model years.

I've come across a few clean Rubicons but they seem to run a few grand more than the other variants.

Is the Rubicon worth the extra dough?

It really depends. If you're just going down graded dirt trails then probably not. If you're doing a little rockcrawling then probably. The Rubicon comes with front and rear lockers. It also has a 4:1 transfer case as opposed to the standard 2.72:1. The tires are also larger as well. The Rubicon does make a good all around'er BUT if you're not crawling then the 2.72:1 in the transfer case would probably be better as it's too low to use elsewhere.

It looks to be a Warn/Black Diamond/Superlift XLC kit. http://www.superlift.com/suspension/jeep/BD-XCL.asp

Earl gave us some waves last week and I got this pix after a surf - came out of the water and this beach Jeep was parked next to me. Typical FL beach rig - no top, doors and plenty of rust.

Thumb Just empty every pocket

This is my 99' Cherokee Classic. My goal was to have a reliable, yet capable ride. It's my DD and has the following mods: 1.5" budget boost, Rough Country shocks and stabilizer, custom home brew front and rear bumpers, CAI with functional ram air, CB, flares removed w/wheel wells trimmed and 30x9.5 Treadwright mud terrains. Just put a new starter in it yesterday.

Nice looking XJ! I'm running Treadwright's on my Wrangler. The Guard Dogs. Looking forward to when their 315's come out.

So much for that self cleaning tread pattern...








This was the end of this trail, and we seriously considered giving it a try, but no dice.
