    Having woken up to a bright autunmal morning, a flick through 4x4 Magazine Roadbook inspired us to get the Renegades out and give it a go. Great lanes, great toastie, great cake and now a desperate need to visit the jet wash.

    So spent Saturday morning helping my brother out with the Jeep. Taken a lot longer as I have upgraded stuff as I ordered stuff. So the winch plate will fit the WJ just fine, as long as unlike me you don't decide that you want to upgrade the radiator to a twin core.... Things get a little tight when you do. Also the winch plate removes the slam panel supports, apparently just cable tying them to the brace that holds the power steering cooler radiator up is good enough..... I don't think so.... We went with the nice inch wide flat bar bare from the slam panel down to the winch plate. Now the slam panel don't move around and the bonnet shuts nicely. So still plenty to finish up but more photos of the progress. Well the front is all off again as the front end has now been coated in Raptor to keep it nice and rust free. Oh and my 12000lb warrior samurai fits perfectly. I'll even be able to leave the clutch alone. Just pop the front grill to get to it

    Seems I'll have to check out the Long Mynd. Jeep looks great Taz - I think the silver bumper goes with the grill nicely. And glad it all works well out on the lanes.

    After the success of our daytime event I am guaging interest to see if anyone is interested in doing a twilight run around Cannock forest. The date would be 4th January 2020 - 3:30- 7 ish. Foresttrax are running a public day in the mornning and we would have a private day in the early evening. It does give you the option to attend both events. The morning one you would need to pre book yourselves and they sell out fast. So thoughts as soon as possible please Stu Hedge digger JuicyLucie doodle Matt PDB Craig evans Codi

    Hi everyone! Like many others on here, it seems, I've come over from Land Rover (series 1 Disco) and I'm now the owner of a 1999 Wrangler TJ Sahara. Went looking for some mud today and have posted some photos. So far - absolutely love it! If anyone is organising events in Scotland, please let me know! (Unfortunately it looks like I won't be able to make the Kielder Forest run this year ) It's got a few mods on it already, and I'll be playing around with it a bit more. So far: 2.5" suspension lift 2" body lift Front recovery bump + 9,500lbs Superwinch Rear recovery bumper Rocksliders with retractable sidesteps (these are awesome!!) Once I've saved up some more money I'd like to upgrade from the 31s to 33" tires....but will this require altering the gear ratios? Cheers!

    From a fellow WJ owner who has been following your thread with interest (and envy), you have a bloody nice WJ.

    Hi and welcome to the club. Yes kids are welcome in the event, took my 2 (17 and 15) last year, you just need to make sure they have stuff to do when out on the route between stops. Check out the first post for the booking link to book and don’t forget you only get one breakfast with the booking.

    The front calipers gave up after the MOT test. No help again from jeep so fotted a refurbed pair. Flushed the brake fluid with Motul 660 and fitted yellowstuff pads. Brakes are fantastic. Here are swome of the completion pics. Needless to say she is insured for an agreed value. Coming to a green lane near you! Thanks to Paul & Rob at PB Customs for great workmanship, professionalism, problem solving and perservering with many parts issues along the way. If anyone else wants to mod a late model WK/WH..... buy another car and allow 6 months. Im not sure Paul Brown would want to do another. But very glad he did mine. Many thanks Paul and Rob!

    Thanks Taz. It was someting Paul has done for other overland rigs and works really well. Iron rock do a good 6" lift. You could turn it into something like Bob Seaborn's Grey Thunder

    Hi Folks, Sorry I didn't get any pics at Aldermarston. However it was gr8 having other folks along for the ride, so I thought I'd train up another co driver for next time. He did really well , but found it difficult to cope with the steering play over 60mph with a white police car behind! LOL

    Im with you on the quarry sites! I opted againat a snorkel due to visibility issues; on the WK the front pillar is obstructive enough on roundabouts. Like the idea of some forced cold air induction though.

    Thanks I really wish I could say this will be the end....... I know the wife want these mods to be the end, but they arn't. Still plenty more to do. Eventually.

    Here's a few pics from our recent trip up to the Northern territory, it's spring here and temps go up and down massively ! Our trip started from Adelaide South Australia to Coober Pedy about 855km! Camping there then onto Ayres rock another 730km. we spent 2 nights at Yulara. From Yulara we drove 270km to Kings Canyon and made our drive to Alice Springs via Mereenie Loop Rd (182km on the dirt) we Camped 2 nights just outside Alice Springs. We took day trip out to Ross River Resort https://rossriverresort.com.au and drove via a small part of the Binns Track! Here's a few pic's! On Route to Cooper Pedy dLrDLeFASpK2j5DqJQhnDg.MOV +Hru2UxKTHe2qFb4ElhZdQ.MOV

    Wednesdays progress was mainly on the Hidden Winch Plate. Out with the thin tin between the chassis legs and in with plate steel That should strengthen things a little more...... The new radiator is a tiny little bigger than the old stock one so the recovery eyes needed to be trimmed down a little. All the welds were redone to make sure they don't separate in use. A nice coat of Raptor prior to installing the winch will keep the plate nice and rust free. Also removed some of Whtiecliff Quarry from the aircon radiator.......

    The UK Spec Rubicon doesn't have the US spec Rubicon bumper, so I ordered the Mopar Rubicon bumper which is identical to that one. It's quite surprising that this off-road bumper has pretty useless red hooks (impractical) but nowhere to fit a shackle! There are many after market bumpers that do, but as I had a new one, I looked at two alternatives. The first was the Warn D-Ring mount. This is where research would have saved me some money! When I read the installation instructions, I saw that I needed cut both bumper and skid pan, and not only that, but doing so would mean chopping out 2 of the 5 nut connectors for where the skid plate fixes to the bumper. Well I wasn't happy about that. A few guys on the JL forum said they'd done it and that they weren't worried about compromising their bumper. So I looked instead at the Maximus 3 Tow Loop. Now this also needs cutting. However it is offset a little less than the Warn loop mount, and where the cutting is required does not mean any bolt holes get cut out. A "bonus" was the incredibly clear instructions that they supplied too!

    More progress made today with all the major metal work for the Snorkel now being done. The Water Pump and Thermostat now replaced as well. Just got to finish the snorkel install and then onto the hidden winch plate and then finally the new radiator. Should all be done by the weekend

    Yeah that’s the one, took a long to time sell from what I remember. Fourtrak was great but leaf springs front and rear, no power steering and a non turbo 2.8 motor meant it wasn’t going to last long once I’d driven a TJ.

    The next phase of the WJ mods are now underway. Hopefully renewing all the cooling system will get the temps back under control. Taking the front end off enabled full access to the old Radiator, which is being replaced with a 2core alloy one, the water pump and the thermostat. Plus enables access to fit the hidden winch plate and the snorkel. So well worth it. All the work is being done my my brother at his garage. He is a fabricator so I might even get him to knock up a full set of underbody protection as well for me..... Anyone needs any custom work doing on there Jeep ;let me know and i'll put you in contact with my Brother. Based around Halesowen, West Mids

    Hi Guys, My name is Andy and I am relatively new to Jeep ownership having bought my first Jeep in the last couple of weeks. I met a few of you at your club meeting at the Pentagon Doncaster Jeep and Alfa Romeo dealership where I think its fair to say I'm pretty well known as I own an Alfa as well that was purchased from there! Anyway, just thought I would say hello and and introduce myself. Looking forwards to meeting more of you at some of the events in the near future. Cheers guys Andy T

    Hi all, just a quick introduction. Big Jeep fan, owned a few and off-roaded a bit in the past and looking to get back into it. I'm signing up to the Kielder 4X4 event and hope to meet a few of you there. My current Jeep is the 1995 Sahara YJ - Jurassic Park. But I've owned a few others over the years. Cheers, Dave

    Thanks to everyone at JOC for organizing and particularly Neal for assisting me put my sway bar back in! Tips noted for next time. My own top tip from the day: Don't rest your phone on your bumper when checking the underside of your jeep, otherwise it could end up at the bottom of a muddy pool...
