'i literally know nothing' the post
New Tacoma or new 4Runner? Would be used to get /out/ but not strictly /org/ activities
im going to post my superior american made offroading machine
Fir the record, I no longer have a Yellow YJ...
Please no cases of mistaken identity this thread K?
oh you must be that Yellow YJ I see driving around my block
drop by my house one day and we'll take the trail offroading, senpai
Michigan path when?
what is this item?
100% of the land for the next 70 miles is faggy agriculture shit
nowhere to play
raining and foggy as shit
fog and rain is too thick to see farther than 1/4 of a mile
can play on everyone's shitty land because the corn and cotton jews can't see me
They're both much bigger than they used to be. Generally, you can get a TRD Tacoma cheaper than a TRD 4Runner. Really, any Tacoma cheaper than a 4runner these days.
Tacos are easier to find in manual and with LSDs, or locking diffs. And the taco has slightly better approach angles off road stock.
But any built rig is better than stock, so buy an older 4Runner or Taco, and build it with the money you save. That's what I did. Mines the one on the right.
bro I live in CALIFORNIA, there is only ONE yj guy and that's me! hahaha. The only other yj guy I have EVER seen was that dude in the last thread asking about cyber Monday deals for winches.
This is called a Suburban.
is this a joke?
im seriously asking...its hard to tell on here sometimes
those green beadlocks are gag worthy
sweet truck though
user you should go
he attempts to literally blaze trails in his trailblazer
only other yellow yj guy is looking for a winch
Uhhhhh. About that...
planning a 3 week long trip through the southeast next march/april
anything i cant miss? anybody got any great trails i havent heard of?
Considering buying one of these from a co-worker. is 230k bad for 1500?
not bad for a pile of garbage
looking for a winch
I also just bought one hahaha, guess I should be more specific, he had a red yj.
So I got in contact with the owner today, gonna go see it tomorrow.
-yellow not red yj guy
otay... so you're the old - yella why jay guy who now has a pretty rare barndoor suburban?
8/10 would camp with you in michigan
you're the yj fag in san diego and not: "veekyforums.com
And I'm the guy who is no longer looking for the winch since I just bought one on clearance. This thing was $300.
Happy times. . Though, the screws and all are cast aluminium alloy so I'm kinda sketched out by that. Might replace the actual connexions for something less... unfamiliar.
Also gonna invest in a winch cover.
Is there a way of putting the winch in the bed and pulling it out via back bumper instead.
Not paying 500 for a synthetic roped winch
If you paid $300 for the HF 10k you got ripped. My HF 12k was $289.
I have some 1cm thick Kevlar rope that I'll string around it but due to the Canadian soil and geology, I'm afraid of it snapping.
We discussed this in the last ORG and talked about it with the normies. Steel wire replaced every 2-4 years seems like the best course of action up here.
Oh thank God. It's 300 CAD which means after conversion, works well. Also, ALL goods have a 25% tariff just for being Canadian up here (tyres, books, life, etc).
I was more worried that this was a generic brand and I fucked up but for 5 tonne rating and considering I don't do technical trails, I'm satisfied with this purchase.
oh that's prety blurry
lemme enlargen the pic to see it better
*clicks on pic*
i'm fucking dying
i'm afraid of it snapping
should be: "I'm afraid of it abrading and scratching"
should be "50-600% tariff
sage me, baby
Am I a faggot if I want to put a 4bt cummins turbo diesel in literally anything that is a 4x4?
Yes. In larger 4x4s a 6BT would be more viable.
Breaking a rusty Toyota Pickup Truck frame with a hammer
I fucking kek'd
So I'm about to spend about 10k on a clean LC would 15k in offroad mods make it unstoppable?
I think 15k is too much, you really don't need much. front, back and side armor, a lift, tires, and a winch. 8k maybe.
I want a RTT and the ones I saw were 1k-3k and I'm sure the snorkels are expensive. Will probably do an engine rebuild to start from scratch.
I don't do technical trails
You're on /ORG/ bro and I see you spending a few grand in these threads for offroading. Do you really expect to resist the sweet call of rock climbing a year down the line?
Paying a premium for a LC over a cheaper 4x4 is pointless if you plan on putting $15k into it.
It'll never be unstoppable because building it for one purpose will sacrifice it's utility for another purpose.
For an expedition vehicle weight isn't a huge issue but you're going to want a ton of space meaning a larger vehicle and likely a more universal tire that works well enough for most purposes but doesn't do any one particular thing better than the competition. You'll likely want to stay fairly low to minimize rollover risk and losses in fuel economy. Think F350 with a slide in camper, or Suburban, Excursion, etc. with very small lift and All Terrains.
For a mud truck it's going to be about lift, tires, axles, and power. The bigger the better as far as suspension goes. You need not worry about interior space to sleep or store food, water, or extra fuel.
For a desert truck you don't even need 4x4. Long travel, low weight, and plenty of damping with tires that aren't too aggressive because you don't want to dig down too far.
Build any of these trucks to be unstoppable for their specific purpose and they will suck if you try to use them for a different purpose.
Here in Arkansas it's about mud and river crossings, I wanted something I could attach a tent to or if need be sleep in the back. I'll be using it to travel for 3-6 months overlanding.
Nice Alahu my Ackbar. You got all the sandnigger terrorists jelly af.
Unless you're a 5'2" manlet you're going to have trouble sleeping comfortably in the back of an LC.
If you've even considering sleeping in the back I'd just go ahead cross the smaller SUVs off the list. Suburban/Excursion will give you room to sleep with a little extra, or you could look at pickups and get a cap or slide in camper. Assuming you don't need the back seat for people, an extended cab may be advantageous just for the extra interior storage.
If you're looking at GM platforms, it would be better to avoid the 6.5l diesel but if you do get one then relocate the PMD. For Ford I'd avoid the 6.0l diesel because IMO it's just not worth bulletproofing when there's so many other options out there that don't need extensive work to be reliable.
For mud, river crossings, and overlanding, you may want to go a bit taller than the average overlanding vehicle but not as tall as the average mud truck. It obviously depends on how much of each you do but I'd expect 3-6" of lift depending on platform to be a good balance.
what percent tint, faggot?
someone say off road?
Barn door burbs are rare? I never knew this! As far as camping goes, best we wait till spring when the hunters leave and the weather is nice. Sleeping in the cold is a bitch and I don't want to run the truck all night.
Depends on the motor. The 5.3 Vortec had an oil issue. The old 350s were practically bulletproof. Haven't had much experience with the 454s but I hear they're thirsty pigs. The 6.5 diesels are an acquired taste, but they have a plethora of nightmares with their computer controller systems. I personally wouldn't shy away from it purely on mileage, but I'd be as careful as I would with anything with those miles.
EVERY TIME I SEE YOUR TRUCK I AM REMINDED I WANT THESE HANDLES BUT I KEEP FORGETTING WHAT THEY ARE! Topkick handles if IIRC right?
The truck on the left... donor truck?
Your Jeep is rusting in the same place on the front fender as my old one. You are making me miss it.
I also want to climb on rocks but I'm doing an overland build. One day I will break down and get another YJ. I sense it... That shall be my rock project when it happens.
I concur! As a 6.5 owner though, I wouldn't shy away from them. While I agree the Injector pump and related sensors/controllers suck, and you won't get the performance of a newer Cummins/Powerstroke/Duramax they are pretty effecient! I am able to get 20MPG with a 4.10 rear end and MT tires!
Is this yours? Specs? I have a buddy of mine with one of these but he's too Chicken to trail it :-(
no low range
Buying a 383 stroker '70 c10 (2wd) to do some desert hooning in. Sound good?
here's more pics for your nostalgia.
Yep. Topkick/Kodiak handles. You can get four new handles for ~$100 on Rockauto but the rods you need are out of production and getting hard to find. I'd keep an eye out for C3500HDs at local yards to loot the rods from.
The one on the left is my roommate's 97 k1500 SLT Suburban. He's got my old Dana 50 and SF 14 bolt he's going to throw under it with dually hubs and run stock the stock H1 24 bolts that my spare set of Bajas is coming off of.
Newer younger thread so I thought I'd ask.
Tundra fag from the last threat. Since I'm bouncing between a Taco and a Tundra, if I go the Taco route, would it be beneficial to go for the TRD Pro package or get the TRD Offroad package and just mod it to where I want?
It would be beneficial to not buy a 1/2 ton or lighter truck if you plan on using it like a truck.
When I was a kid my parents' first new car was a '93 Suburban with Barn Doors and that massive fuel tank. Good times.
SD Tacoma checking in.
Where's that picture taken? Looks like a neat spot
What engine? If you have the 2.5 DOHC and a manual gearbox you can stay.
Am I a faggot if I want to put a 4bt cummins turbo diesel in literally anything that is a 4x4?
I don't think so
Since you mention it i knew a guy on TacomaWorld who swapped a 16BT into his 1st gen. The thing kicked ass but now he wants to sell it
*6BT not 16BT Jesus fuck
Yes and no. Maybe I'll actually buy the TJs that I want but my friend just recently said he found a 69 Camaro and due to le stereotype, I might save up the nine grand for that instead. I'll be a walking country song stereotype!
m u h t r u c c
n a s c a r
Yeah. I had to triple check that it wasn't just a Silberado with a cap. If you hold onto it for a while, the barndoors can increase like 2000 or so dollars on the resale value. I've never seen one online or real life(though I don't look for them, to be fair)
Where are you located, bae?
[spoiler] bae is the suburban[/spoiler]
DROP EVERYTHING NOW
MEET ME IN THE POURING RAIN
Holy fuck. Both those vehicles together. Best rig I've seen on these threads hands down.
Fucking beautiful, my dude
FJ79's will never be made and sold in the US
fucking angry still
Alright, I've made a list of stuff to get for the XJ Cherokee I'm saving up for and want to know if there's anything I should change or consider
Rusty's XJ 3" Spring Pack Lift Kit
Bushwacker Flat Style Fender Flares
As for tires, I'm looking at Duratracs, but I'm open to looking at different tires.
Any more rust? I had to weld in all new sheetmetal to the tub on mine because there was a rust hole big enough for me to Fred Flinstone the thing.
Time to keep a lookout for these rods. That sucks they're becoming rare. Looking forward to seeing your roomie's project when its done!
Filling up these tanks sucks though haha. My first burb had a 40 gallon tank. This one has 30. Shits expensive.
Good to hear it's rare I guess? This setup is probably the rarest of the rare
6.5 turbo diesel
Still so strange they are rare haha. All my Burbs I've ever owned have been barn doors. But then again I've only had 3 so...
Where am I? I'm over in Michigan. Grand Rapids to be exact. Living in the city sucks off road wise but I get by. Theres a few local places to go if you know where to look, but up North in the forest or the sand dunes is where it's at.
the overland looks way better
dont post that 3rd world truckbed here, son
How's hunting? If it's good, I'll b sure to pen it down for next Autumn.
We're YOU the one I was supposed to trail with near Windsor (with[out] the YJ, right?!)? Whitetail in winter, tho? If so, that'll justify the 8hr drive and $120 in fuel.
Also, regarding offroad areas, I guess I'm still young so I like to spin dirt on back roads or construction sites when I get a chance.
Here's a pic tonight I took 4 the memes. It's offroad but you're gonna have to belieb me - she was in PJs so couldn't leave.
We also played hide and seek with my valance when I did the on-road check and discovered half my bumper was missing.
Yeah they ended up selling the BlueBurb for a 5th gen Maxima which was quick but handled like shit.
The Suburban was the first car I've ever driven since my parents let me steer while I sat on their lap driving on the backroads where I grew up
Lots of memories in that old SUV. Good shit.
24/7 non-stop coverage of taytay
what the fuck is wrong with you
10 or 15 percent, not sure desu senpai
hEY7 TSWIFT YOU HAVE ANY NUDES?
saving my image is okay but my filename is not
Nice repeating digits.
The tayposter is evolving.
Hunting is good here. Finding someone with private land is highly recommended as state land can be too crowded, especially down south. Haven't been in years though, too busy with work and life and the sort.
I know what you mean about dirt roads and construction sites. That's mostly how I get by. That and there's a few short trails, abandoned rail right of ways, and power line trails.
Id be down for a Windsor trip, as I'm (not a YJ). How is the terrain over there?
My first burb was Blue too! I actually see it on the road from time to time. It's been sold about five times since, but it's still running haha. Pic related, this is my old Blue Burb
Margarita trail, on an abandon helipad east side of camp Pendleton California.
image of trail location on maps btw.
dear god that thing is worth a lot of money. One of my dream vehicles.
Can't imagine all the drive train upgrades a cummins swap would take though, you would just rip up stock toyota axles and dana 30/35's
Here's and larger scope of the area, but i'm sure you live no where near it.
those are rock rings, user.
Barn door Suburbans aren't even rare.
He ended up putting the entire drivetrain from the donor truck into it, so it's basically a Tacoma body on top of a Ram Super Duty drivetrain
Took a Google and some weird forums say it was DC'd in 2007 as an optional trim so they're not rare.
I've never seen one either.
I have plans for my '93 Dakota with next to nothing for aftermarket support, but I have no money. :(
Words cannot describe how much I want a modern 70-series
yeah, those 3rd world toyato engines are amazing. they can run for 300,00km in the harsh desert winds without the oil ever being changed in its life. really glad this 3rd world reliability has made its way down under, where tasteful australians do not purchase the truck bed option which is typically used in china to haul garbage. but instead they purchase the overland/suv version which looks much nicer. i could never picture a filipino driving one of those
Welp. Coloured me cucked.
I never see old Suburbans here in Ontario what with the road salt in the first place. Probably heard it from a normie and relayed it to /ORG/. Sorry guise.
not editting out "memecenter.com"
being from norwegian
not going on "memecentre.com"
Hey at least you don't live in Canada where the Land Cruisers are just "luxury SUVs" that look like modern Jeeps "luxers". Muh North American marKKKets.
get excited due to oz's selections
looking at options for canadian toyota oberlanders

hopes immediately smashed
THEN WHY ADVERTISE IT.
Anterlerless hunt: December 18 - Jan 1
Regular firearm hunt: Nov. 15-30th.
I'M COMING DOWN TODAY AND WE'RE BAGGING US A WHYTETAIL.
Doesn't seem ueber freedom like some states have it. I could go and hunt coyotes, wolves and other weird birds who stayed for winter but I can also do that here )^:
Mebe Windsor. I don't know any actual trails that south but can ask the normies. Or I'll actually go and buy the offroad trail maps they have for 20 shekels at the trucc stops.
Terrain is less field and more mud. The spotty aquifers (what with the great lakes and everything) keep the dirt muddy until it freezes over in January. I've never gone so far south past London but that's what I imagine it to be.
Once it freezes over, the mud turns into ice so that could work out to our long-vehicular advantage.
Efficacy of them?
Desert winds are harsh on people, they do fuck all to vehicles with air filters.
Yellow yj guy here, just got my winch in, too bad I don't have enough time to install right now.
Not a warn m8000
shut your gob mate
Are you me?
What model? How much? What's the hook made of? I also got in a package of wheel rollies and a tree hugger.
Is that synthetic rope or just a cover that hides the steel?
Why does Veeky Forums hate the current gen Jeep Wrangler?
pentastar + chrysler low quality garbage
No AMC parts
Relatively expensive. Too many electrical components. Mom-labels. Hasn't aged like the Defender, Toyota Land-series, etc. and
It's the only dedicated North American overlander, though. So props to that.
Eh, I got it from Veeky Forums, and I cant say I care at all about a watermark
Do you guys get the "proper" Land Cruiser, aka the J200? We only get the Prado here, and as such you'll have to specially import a J200 if you want one
One day I'll fix my blown the fuck out '98 454 K2500
Has fairly nice interior, custom exhaust that came with it, and (some) spun bearing(s)
I wheelied too close to the sun last weekend and fucking desecrated one of my front forks. Pulled up on the handlebars so hard that my shocks fully extended and collided on the way down. Fortunately nothing actually bent besides the internal spring, both the inner shaft and outer sleeve are okay, so I just slid the shock off the axle, fitted it back together, and slid it back on.
Obviously these shocks are shot and I'm only delaying the inevitable front end replacement, but at least I can continue riding it until they're completely destroyed.
a friends subaru
I remember my friend's old lifted K2500 with like 40 inch tyres that would get 9MPGs on the highway. Good times.
What's spun bearings?
Shocks aren't that much to replace. Just be glad your whole suspension isn't guffed
I've heard stories of my friends breaking their knees or shins when the shocks don't absorb as much as they should. So at least you're still posting here! :D
Yeah these front ends aren't terribly expensive, an upgrade to a better front end from a later model will likely be around $200. I just have a tendency to hold out until the bitter end before replacing larger parts. If these shocks continue to commit suicide while I'm riding I'll probably weld them solid before I dish out the coin for an upgrade. The real problem is that I'm riding an '82 Big Red like a sport trike, these early Big Red's weren't designed for full-time wheelie poppin' swamp rips, they were designed to haul fruit and veggies around the farm and occasionally go for casual rips along the river on weekends. It's only a matter of time before I cave on a front end swap and throw some sport forks on the front that are more appropriate for heavy riding.
It got about 3MPG towing a 24' camper trailer
What's spun bearings?
Main bearings, oil gave up the goose and the engine seized. I'm afraid to look inside, but I don't have time to pull the engine anyway so it's been sitting.
you need to provide more information about your uses
if it were me i would go trd pro taco and then add things on only as needed
i am not you though
say that to my face F A G G O T
thats my image you nigger
me too my man
cut down tree
bundling up the faggots
2inches longer than allowed by municipal collection
otay since going offroading in a few days so i can just toss the faggots on the side of the highway.
Heh. I also used an image with a watermark
It's only a matter of time before the ride CAVES on a front end. HEH. No but really be careful.
Also, for the price you pay for those old UTV (i think they're considered one due to the way they're used), it might be worth it. What's the going rate for the trikes nowadays?
Holy shit. New record! You win: an ecoboost engine swap.
that fucking hackjob
hey guys, yellow yj guy here, just got back from test driving the toyota.
in love with it.
fucking awesome man
you find out whats going on with the title?
I don't know how to offroad but it looks fun.
Where do I learn?
Sweet. Buy it so I stop confusing you with the barndoor suburban guy in Michigan who also used to maybe own a yellow yj.
Buy that guys' yellow YJ^^. Listen to Taylor Swift.
Where do you live?
West Virginia. I drive an '08 Explorer, but it's 2WD.
you can get started on some basic forest roads in your explorer then sell it get 4x4 and mod as you go
You mean why it was a salvage title? No I forgot to ask but I just thought about it for a while and i'm gonna call the guy in a few minutes here and ask him about it and possibly put down a deposit. Also gonna have to sell my yj to buy it so. depends on a lot right now, but I think he liked me and prefers me over other by how he's talking about the other people looking at it.
also since it's offroad season rn I have a really good chance at selling my yj for a decent amount, gonna keep a few parts on it though.
Will do. I'll try to find something more challenging than my road.
Fucking state department gave up halfway down the road and it just becomes mud and boulders.
repostan from /out/
r8 or h8
Nice! I think you're under the curb weight.
I learned how to offroad with my 2WD Chebby Colorado and the most important thing it taught me is what roads you can go on and which roads you should not go on.
Good for the city since I would go to my old job's field and rip doughnuts in the baseball diamond during the winter. I would also get stuck in the winter and need to call the tow truccs to get me out. Good times.
I would not recommend doing any of that but 2WDs are definitely off-road capable as long as you're not a high idiot like myself.
If you do what suggests, I would get a traction aid in case of stuck and have a friend on call. Four rachets are good for pulling your vehicle out by the frame with another vehicle (and since they're nylon, the snapping won't kill anyone) and they even have $100 boots for you to get unstuck if you want to spring that amount.
Otherwise, just make sure you keep your hand OUT of the steering wheel (otherwise you can break your arm if you hit a rock and the steering wheel jerks 360deg), bring lots of food, buy a CAA / AAA membership, and have money to maybe trade in your exploder down the line!
Good vibes to you, user!
u wot m8
California isn't Canada bro, literally the desert is lighting up right now until april and people are always looking for rigs.
I memed myself into believing you were in Michigan.
fucking christ, well I just got off the phone and I think he was alright with me giving him a deposit and then buying the truck in a couple weeks when the jeep is gone, but he had to ask his wife because she wants it gone.
Bought a Jeep last week.
I take it to the inspection place.
Get a call from the inspection guy saying "I won't pass this thing it's way too dangerous" / brakes lock due to low brake oil etc.
Inspection guy tells me to not put a dime in it and sell it.
Sad for the rest of the day.
Pick up car and see MAGA hat in back seat.
mfw they failed my inspection to stump Trump.
lmfao bro, please tell me that shit actually happened.
I swear on me mum
keep the meme war alive, fampai
4th world shitskins and the nigger terrorist toyota.jpg
We made a deal for the truck, but I have to sell me jeep in a little under 2 weeks, doable? lmao, anyone want to buy my jeep for 4200?
I would if you were in Michigan. Not even lying here I've been looking for a well priced project jeep for the past 3 months.
Drive the Heep up to Onterrible and fly down. It's "offroad" season soon when the mud turns to ice and we go ice fishing.
I can't wait til bae says "user my feets are cold" and i pull out the 4 pack of toe warmers and crown each of her toes with little wool hats. Oh it's gonna be so cute.
Will do that with you, too if you come along.
Don't be mean, user. They're just trying to fight their holy war against American globalists.
[spoiler] (^: [/spoiler]
would you buy it and pay shipping costs? hahaha
For the last time that's me. I don't have my YJ anymore. Why does this keep happening?
How much you looking to get for it? Not that I'm serious... just curious as I still miss YJs.
Nevermind my reply above^
I'd pick it up in a heartbeat but I have two other project cars atm. Can't justify or park a 4th :-( Best of luck with the sale though!
We got an hour and a half left. You commin or what?
Glad I don't have Inspections or front plates here in Michigan! I more than pay for it with high no fault insurance, shitty roads, and enough road salt to turn our roads into anchovies
REEEEEEEE NOT CUTE
Shipping costs can just be some elk covered in maple syrup when you drive up here. Bet you haven't gone ice fishing or dog sledding before! You can join the mishyfag
Uhhh. Sunset was 1700 so that last bullet would've been needed to be fired at 1630. C'mon - get your /k/ larp on.
(what are your project cars, btw?)
I'll have to try this one out sometime. I'm about a half hour away from it, but it's still closer than Ocotillo Wells, which is where I normally go off-roading
Yea.... forgot about that. Haven't been hunting in some time.
I have the burb I want to turn into an overlanding rig. Still in planning stages. For now it's a Pseudo-Daily/storage shed/trail truck.
I've also got an '84 Vice city Taxi/Police Cruiser. Currently sitting, nagging at my conscious waiting for me to get the time off work to swap in the T5 currently sitting in the Burb. After that I have to redo the interior, a bit of motor work, and a repaint and she'll be done!
Unfortunately I have no pics of all 3 of my cars in one pic. Since you've seen the burb, pic related is project #2.
My dad's been in the market for a TJ but nobody's selling anything in SD that doesn't have a salvage title or is stupid expensive. I tried to get him to look at a YJ but he doesn't like the front leaf springs
it rides very rough, not the one for you guys. and it's a salvage title, but the title is from a fender bender probably in about 1993. Unless you really want it. asking $4350
I have a yj.
you live in cali? looks like it.
YJ a best
Yeah I do.
tfw no longer only guy with a yj here.
uniqueness now eliminated
That's not mine, I just like the YJ
This is muh XJ
oh yeah I recognize it.
Farm fagging (planning a small orchard), camping with my wife and her kid(s), hauling random shit, possibly towing shitboxes I find and some light offroad fun. I don't think rock crawling is in the cards but who knows? I'm leaning toward the Taco though the more I think about it.
240GD, but I've since swapped the engine for an OM617 3l diesel, added a bull bar and widened the track a bit.
update on the toyota br/o/s, gonna give hima small deposite and end up paying him 6400 is the HEEP sells, probably could have got it for 9200 but he's a homie and is doing some work to it before he sells it to us. Plus he is letting me take a couple weeks to get the cash. How did I do so far ORG? I guess it wont make sense to you if you never saw the CL add.
Godspeed, YJ user, that truck is a great find
ARE YOU KEKING SHITTING ME
Damn I wish we got these in Canada.
Yssssss. I am getting happy for you.
I can't wait to see the new Toyota YJ we'll be confusing it for in the next few weeks <33
This is my same circumstance. Another options it the CJ-7 which is itself pretty darn sexy, too. I'd say they ride half between the TJ and YJ's rides. More rare, of course.
Would love me a TJ under $3000 but that would mean I have to spend a lot of time rebuilding the whole thing off a half destroyed $1500 TJ and do not have the time for that.
H E E P
Or I could just get a very old Camaro, hehe.
For that price it better have a built Cummins and 1 tons with air lockers.
We'll my dad already has an old Camaro so now he's wanting a Jeep, too :^)
nah sadly no, new paint, 100% rust free, re geared, rear locker, 35's, new t case mount, and extra t case, front and rear bumpers, rockers, plenty of other things, probably could get less and the deal isn't totally over yet. still feels good man
Is this truck any good or should it be avoided?
Don't know yet, it's very knew, I haven't heard a thing about it. Only ever scene two of them.
However much you think the repairs add to the value, subtract that.
Repairs don't add value.
Trail beater jeep
What would you pick? I can't keep beating on the JKU, i'd rather just keep it as my DD. So far Craigslist has shown me that a lot of people are expecting too much for their rusted shitboxes, as $3000 is apparently in the range for an XJ with rusted rockers, rusting quarter panels, and a rough country lift. Haven't seen any decent Yjs around yet, and i don't think a TJ is possible at this price unless it's salvage.
Enjoy your new XJ.
blease resbond DDD:
i live 2 minutes from VTP. u jelly?
way too big
VTP, that place that sells SUPER CHEAP parts and accessories?
My 6.5 IS a Suburban haha
God I love these...
Wranglers hold their value bro. Even harder is trying to find an original unmodified one.
Compliments on the awesome XJ. What color is that? It almost looks like old school border patrol or USFS...
Is it your DD?
Well since VTP is in bumfuckville, not really.

You guessed it.

My grandma lived out there.
Takes me like 30 minutes to get to VTP, and the tunnel is free now too.

But I like big to make up for my small feminine penis.
Kid is mine but I'm going to be called a cuck for it anyway so might as well ham it up. Bulls don't prep themselves you know.
I got one. Where do I put it?
Looks like a Titan / Raptor mixxxer. Not sure why they would advertise the rear lift like that or why it would come with a stock winch.
Any vehicle over 2 tonnes without the appropriate tyres (AND THIS THING LOOKS LIKE IT HAS FUCKIN 28s) is not going to be suited in the mudd or extreme hills.
Short bed also makes me scream:

parked outside of the tattoo parlour every other wednesday night.
Aww. You're cute. Would learn how to ATV with you properly
(pls no bully i only have done utv dribing D:)
You two are also cute. I like the reactive armour you put up prior to browsing Veeky Forums. I've found that it takes a decent amount of money and brains to offroad and I like being surrounded by people like this.
Why? I don't think I can.
Don't do it user
2-wheel master race
Truck is just HUEG, those tires are 32s and the bed length is the 6'4" rambox which I guess is the same size as their short bed, but the length of the standard Tundra bed? And here I thought it was a decent bed size.
Mmmmm. Dirtbikes are cheaper and faster. And I always choose the Sanchez over the Bandito in GTA SA anyway. How bad are they when you crash into trees and shit?
I mean, I could also just get a Jeep with that money and tow it with my Ranger to destinations.
SINGLE DIGIT EM PEE GEE INCOMING.
PIC RELATED. ree.
Trump will fix it. Just draw a line through all those silly-assed US 'safety' regulations meant to keep local markets safe for US-badged products made in Mexico.

An extended cab vehicle will never have a long bed anymore (I think the last one died out with the K2500) to make it look less awkward. They're just way too long and when parked at my local hardware store, they have to find two parking spaces or push their head / ass out 2 whole feet.
Aside from practicality, look at aesthetics
pic highly related, hehe
It's about matching. My motherfucking RANGER has a 75inch bed and 32 DuraTracs on them. Tyres make it look weird (and I get some extended tyre wheelwell rub) but the bed matches the cute nose up front and the lowness makes it look alright). The bed can be sacrificed since people know it won't be used in America. Fleeters are going to buy low engine capacity, long beds and these will be put into tattoo parlour parking lots where Dodge knows they'll be going. It's a shame. The 1500 really isn't THAT bad of a vehicle...
THE 2500 WEIGHS FUCKING 3 TONNES. I know they have to market it as off road capable but the reality is that no one will do any sort of slightly technical trails in these vehicles.
I really don't think your Ranger would be happy towing a Jeep.
And the best bet is to not crash into trees kek
Though, this is another case of my retardation since I could always drive the fucking Jeep. (jeep is 3000lb, trailer is 1000. Ranger maxes out at 6000 so I would be good, though).
Regarding the tree crashes - does a "Standard" crash like that ruin the bike like it does to motorcycles? I would imagine the speed to be under 20 so it couldn't do THAT much damage, right? Or am I just too optimistic when it comes to durability of vehicles.
Also, what about my body?
my dad had a dual cab long bed Nissan frontier in 2006.
I broke the clutch lever and shifter and bent the front rim in that crash, fixed with zip ties and kept riding. Dirt bikes are pretty tough for the most part. Some race bikes have magnesuim case covers that are brittle and can break in a crash, ask me how I know [pic related, fixed with jb weld on the trail and kept riding], but most dual sports have standard aluminum covers that are pretty tough.
Pic related is fixed clutch lever perch
Colour me cucked, they do exist!
Otay, well I guess the long bed crew cabs didn't die out like I suggested here: . Oops. The 2014 model 1500 RAM was $60 000 base, though. So that's why I didn't see them at all.
That's good to know. So it's much like armouring vehicles in general. Good to know that they're pretty tough and with some know hows and a standard set of hood repair boxes, you can fix minor crashes.
/sci/fag rant incoming:
I don't understand why they don't make titanium covers for most of these items and opt for more expensive magnesium or less durable cast aluminium. My friend has an armoured after-scraped the entire bottom of his jeep on a giant sharp, pertruding rock with no indents after it came out the back whatsoever. He had it in 4WD on the two side wheels and the rest of the car was balanced on the skid plate. Literally god tier material.
These things are like $1000 starting price.
I don't see why I shouldn't get one. Huh. How do they handle in snow and on ice?
Fuck that looks so gross. Get this shit off /ORG/.
Aluminum is cheap enough that most of the covers are thick and strong, they are also good about denting/bending instead of tearing or cracking in the case of a fall. The mag covers are purely to save weight and are just made as a cover not as a protective device. I think titanium covers would be very expensive, I'm not sure that magnesium is more expensive than titanium but I don't really know about metal prices.
I'm surprised they would even dream of using magnesium on something that abrades occasionally against rocks and shit. Muh fire hazards and whatever.
And alright. I'll look at the cheaper, armoured dirt bikes. I'll see if my mechanic FAB has a dirt bike vendor and see what prices they are. Would be great for april when I can just go play in dirt. How waterproof are they? Can one keep up with ATV mudders or do you have to lift it above your head / find an alternate crossing?
This board is bad for my health

Mag wheels are a thing, and they never catch fire.
Aw sweet dude. Allahu by any chance?
Wait.... WHAT WIZARDRY IS THIS???!?!?!?!?!?!?
also, are you
Mag wheels on the street are brittle and very rare. Nearly all street wheels are aluminum alloy.
If you can find an old air-cooled VW Beetle engine block, throw the the two halve in a camp fire AWAY from anything you don't want to ignite.
Well done, you cheeky fucker
Why? I don't think I can.
I just wish ARB would release a cover for the 14 bolt.
Hey. Since I'm here, how hard is it to do an axle rebuild? Specifically the rear differential parts (like all of them).
Mechanic is quoting me $500 for the day to fix muh Ranger's loud grinding sound when above 100 on the highway. to be honest, I don't think I'd have the time or effort to do the needed repair (within 3-6 months).
Maybe he'll let me view the whole process. Iunno.
No. This is beefy:
This as they are still quite maleable and non-abrasion resistant. Magnesium hydroxide forms on the layer along with magnesium oxide whereas aluminium only forms the oxide (and in small doses with the hydroxide but is thermodynamically unfavourable). Solid magnesium itself is also harder to cast.
TL;DR ignoring-science edition: magnesium is less durable compared to aluminium
axle rebuilds require a few measuring tools. Some specifics on the tolerances of your rebuild and an understanding of how to get it to mesh right.
There is a youtube video of rebuilding a ford 8.8 and that showed me that i dont have the tools or the patience for that shit unless it is a project car that i dont need on a weekly basis
$500 is really not bad if he does it right
TL;DL, pay the $500 and get it fixed when it needs. It's actually not the axle itself but could be worth poking around and tapping with a piece of wood.
Right now, it's the pinions that are pretty much shot. I think I've got another 25 000 left on them so I'll have to get it done in the next 2 months or so )^:
Also, went high tread mudding a few days ago and the gear is slipping. Weird since I didn't do as much clutch movement as I normally do when on the lightly technical trails.
I can get it to around 2000RPM and not have the engine stall through clutch slip. Normally, I wait a few hours of dribing and the issue goes away (water evaporates, mud falls out, tinkerbell comes and sucks the gunk out) but this time it seems like the slip is going to be long.
I really don't have time to dig into the cylinders lately but is there anything I can do to potentially help or diagnose a superficial issue in the meantime? Right now, I'm just hoping it'll get better than get worse.
1982 k10 guy popping back in plans changed, found a better deal on this 87 k5 picking it up this weekend
Do you drive in your sleep?
I am not sure how you figure you have xx amount of miles left on a dead pinion. Also a pinion that is "gone" means that you aint moving forward. "Going" on the other hand makes more sense.
The more metal you have floating in there may mean more shit to replace when the guy gets in there and he isnt going to give you anything for free unless you give him regular work.
If your pinion is damaged then your ring is likely damaged too so i would confirm if $500 is for the whole deal or just for his time
I'd look for a good used axle rather than rebuild. You can pull cover to inspect.
Go to the Ford Truck Enthusiast forums and Ranger forums for more detail.
If your clutch slips it's clutch time.
Mudding is for trucks you can easily afford to destroy. If so, buy parts or another truck and use yours for other parts. Offroading is a very labor-intensive and expensive hobby so get good at doing all your own work. Buy whatever tools you need and have at it.
fair to assume many of you camp out of your rigs?
anyone care to post their sleeping set up? working on mocking one up for my 80 hopefully similar to pic related
I go to him since my friends have recommended him due to off road parts and he's generally adept.
Only recently going to him due to automotive help since these moderate issues that I can't do without the specialised tools. Last time I saw him, he had just floated it would cost "around 500" as it wasn't a main concern at that time.
i try not mud too hard but sometimes is required to get to some work sites. ):
Ah I'll see how it performs in a week and go there
There's this one too. It's either a 5.3 or an older 5.7, can't remember. Both this and the 4BT one have NV4500s.
those front leafs
update #2, just got back from giving the dude a deposit, still gotta sell the HEEP though..
You like front leafs? Have a junkyard find
Pass. I only like them on Toyotas.
Photoshopped the burb to look like a pickup?
This is how I got mine. Only thing that changed is I have a Ferd T5 hanging out back now. When I camp, I just use my coat for a blanket. Sleeping bag for the immediate future as an upgrade. Still in planning stages for my overland build
My sleeping quarters mainly consists of a piece of carpet lining the truck bed and a sleeping bag maybe over-top a small air mattress
Man it would be way to easy to get the bed to dig into the ground
what truck? looks like a lot of space. surburban?
how has it been with the air mattress? every one ive ever used just slowly loses air the whole night
If it's losing air either you're really really fat or there's been a leak in every one you have used. Are you tightening down the air inlet properly
I've used a piece of large wood to even out the grooves better then place the air mattress over.
Also, remember to use a q. t. for warmth blanket rather than blankets. Same sleeping bag preferred.
I sincerely hope you stop posting here
Fucking nice. I've been DDing an '87 square for the last two years and my experience has been wonderful, close to zero engine maintenance in two years besides a quick EGR valve swap and routine fluid changes. Not sure if the Blazer got the TBI the same year as the half-ton RWD but I've actually really enjoyed having it. Simpler than port injection and less finicky than a carb (not to say that dicking with carbs isn't fun in its own right, but for a DD TBI is very stress free).
I actually really like that custom front bumper too.
It's a pretty good mattress. Some brands last longer than others, and you really get what you pay for. Mine's a Coleman and it's lasted me a couple years and about 10 or so camping trips
Are those 33's, Jeepfrend?
thats actually a common problem with the majority of them desu
i weigh about 180 so i dont think that is the problem.
let me know in a few months of use if its still holding up id be shocked

Went to talk to him today. Used the word "shot" and he said "nah. they're not shot but will be. you could be comfortable to do it in march or april. just don't go innawoods too far".
Yeah... about that last part.
Pinion bearing and axle rebuild is "$400-$500 if you don't need any weird other parts that I can't see right now". I think I'll eat that cost.
I asked him if it was worth replacing the axle and he said "this is better than any axle you'll find unless you want one of those offroad re-geared for like $1500". I have people who are looking for your axle right now for their Jeeps despite it being LSD". Welp - fair enough, senfam
Also, the crotch is skimming less today so that's a good sign. There's a small shake when overcoming inertia and it drops down to 1000RPM. Otherwise, it's perfectly fine. Featherfooting leaves no engine lug.
Maybe clutch in April.

This is why I love /org/
Ya it needs work but it's a solid body and frame. I have a 5.3 vortec that I'm gonna do a mild build and refresh on to swap in with an nv4500(when I find one) mated to a np205. My parts truck has a ff14 bolt and a 44 front with 5.13 gears and lockers. Probably gonna run somewhere between 35-38 inch tires when it's done.
Gonna get rid of the cap and go with a soft top, sheds a big chunk of weight and makes it easier to go topless
Also needs a paint job badly. Whoever painted it before did a complete hack job no prep or anything. It was originally brown then painted red, then black. Front fenders were originally blue
XJs are stock 17 wheels but seem to be after-market to fit tyre size which is why you'd think they're 33s.
With the comparison and cut out wheelwells, I'd peg them at around 35s?
Forgot that word existed. also, you spelted "armoured" wrongingly.
I meant armoured against rocks and stuff, lol. The adjective as a standalone complement and without the adjective:object relation implying "bulletproof" like you want it to, lmao.
That was part of the joke, ehehe.
Have a good weekend, user! I hope I made some people happy this Friday by giving them an extra five or so minutes off their commute time(s).
You've made my Friday better by helping other people. This is why I like /org/, we actually do shit. All that happens in /tg/ is people jerking each other over midships and Celicas
I spelled armoured wrongly
there's a U in armored
user just give up
Different countries spell it differently, just like color-colour and favorite-favourite
Right on, cool project.
I'm no stranger to shitting paint jobs, last owner of my truck spray bombed the entire thing matte brown and tan when the original paint was brown and tan. I'm sure he had a reason, it may have been going bad in some spots, but he didn't even put a layer of primer on, literally just spray bombed over the existing paint. So now all along the bed rails it's starting to peel, resulting in a weird mixture of matte brown and shiny brown spots.
kek, shit paint jobs*
Yep I can't wait to get started, probably gonna strip it to bare frame then put it back together from there.
