Re: Ahtanum this Sunday Jan 23rd

Interested!! Is there a launch point/time from the general Tri-Cities area for a convoy, or are you just shooting for a meeting time at the snow park? For reference, the last few times we have towed up to that area we have parked at the abandoned buildings on the South-West corner of the intersectio...

Nasty Creek 08Jan2022

Small group, excellent weather, significant snow made for tough conditions, but overall a fantastic day at elevation. I will say that in all my years snow wheeling the Nasty Creek area, I've never needed to air down at the corrals before... We usually air down at the base of the hill, about 100 yard...

Nasty Creek 18Dec2021

OG and I met up at the Maverik for an 0730 departure in admittedly sketchy conditions, but with rumors of significant fresh snow in the hills we simply had to investigate. We picked up one Chrispy in the convoy somewhere around Grandview, and slowly made our way the rest of the way to Tampico where ...

Seriously though, I wouldn't call it a "channel"... It's just an easy place to put stuff. Like zero effort for us non-IT type guys. I'm just a pharmer.

TOTRv3.0

TOTRv3.0 is the third installment of our T urkey O n T he R ocks series, held in Moab Utah over the week of Thanksgiving 2021. In attendance this year was the full dollop of Wilcox in our white 2018 JLU-R, with the boy celebrating his 16th birthday and finally wheeling his own Jeep, a white 1999 XJ,...

Re: Oscar

Other than adding fuel, dents and scratches, I haven't really done much to Oscar for quite some time. He just rolled past 15,000 miles this past weekend and after changing the oil, I stood back and took a look at the current state of affairs... The factory rear bumper, simular to the factory front b...

Re: It happens to everyone, right?

While you are in there replacing worn out parts, you should upgrade to the ZJ steering linkage... With oversized/heavier tires the stock stuff is much less tolerant, which is why a lot of people claim success in curing wobbles with steering stabilizers and/or a fresh tire balance. The reality is, ti...

The Minion XJ aka GGv3.0

For those of you following along, you have already seen several pictures and the progression of the XJ that my boy pilots around the hills. With him nearing the magical age of 16, the little rig is about ready to hit the road full time, and I figured it was a good time to document the current state ...

Dusty Rhodes: Ahtanum 9-26-2021

The group met up at the West Richland Maverik at 0730, with the Millers providing scrumptious breakfast burritos for all attendees. Due to various other commitments, the turnout was rather light for this trip but that didn’t stop the rest of us from having a fantastic day. The blustery morning winds...

Re: Starting and Winching Battery Advice Needed.

So I've been buying Deka built, Super Start Platinum branded AGM's from O'Reilly and haven't had any trouble (so far) I've been using the same for the last few Jeep builds, and they have been flawless for me as well. Had to put one in the JLU-R last fall when the OEM battery died after a scant 2 ye...
