A move to the dark side…Posted: August 19, 2019
It happened. I have stepped in the direction of the dark side, I bought a TJ.
So here’s the current fleet: the TJ, the 1984 CJ-7 and the 1985 project CJ-7.
The TJ is a 2006 Rubicon, 5″ lift (Nth Degree), 35″ tires, aftermarket bumpers, Warn winch (I had to swap over to synthetic line), rear tire carrier.
Not too much to do. I removed some of the towing equipment as it was towed behind a motorhome all of it’s life.
Better rock guards are in it’s future as are ham radio, upgraded stereo, re-painting the bumpers and tightening up the tire carrier. I hate rattles.
So now I have a year-round wheeler. The top will come off next summer. But let me tell you, cruise control and AC are really nice on a long drive to the trailhead.
