Best MJ story

Attempted to help get a Range Rover off the trail. It had a plastic(!) idler pulley that melted and proceeded to overheat. Half the group he was wheeling with abandoned him. I pulled him off to an easier section of trail to where one of the other rigs in his group could drag him off the trail. The trail basically made a big loop. We finished the trail and caught back up to them about 45 minutes later in the same spot we left them. They were trying to figure out how to disengage 4WD on the broken Range Rover. :doh:


What owner loves best about CC

Seeing what others are doing with their MJs and getting inspiration for new projects. :yes:






































Congrats Willy! That's a good looking truck, and should be with such a great member standing at the helm. I can't wait to see whats next, and hope everything turned out just the way you wanted it to.


Awesome Rig man! Congrats again! :yes:

Rob L. :cheers:

Thank you everybody!


The next big update is going to be a while. It is going to include bobbing the bed, a cage, and some type of bed sliders to fend off the trees. There is no timeframe at this point because we have a couple of home projects that need to be completed before I start work on this - plus maybe a little work on my Scout project.
