From the looks of your name, I wouldn't call yourself a hard core Jeep Owner...

I had fixed up a Jeep cherokee this is 1999. I put a 3" lift kit along with some 31x10.5 under it. It loves water. I fact the wife wasn't to happy when I came home one day with the inside WET! LOL

The way I look at it was that it was a lot cheaper to buy this and fix it up then buying a new fourwheeler.

My 2008 Rubicon has been modified for medium hard core stuff:
5.13 gears
35 inch Goodyear MTRs mounted on the stock wheels with Spidertrax 1 1/2 inch spacers
1 3/4 inch Daystar spring lift
Hanson bumpers front and rear
Warn 9000 lb winch
Gen-right aluminum fenders
Gen-right rocker guards

For hard core trails I have what is called an FToy, which is a tube chassis welded to an '86 Toyota truck frame. I run 40 inch tires on this rig and have a great time being stupid

Actually, you can see the FToy in my avatar.

'01 TJ 4.88/ARB F&R on 35" Maxxix Creepy Crawlers, pretty much goes anywhere you point it. The only stock items on the rig are the motor/trans rear axle housing and tub, has one un-dented body panel, I'm working on curing that.

'98 XJ TrueTrac/ARB F&R, 33x10.5/15 BFG/ATs for mild trails (Golden Spike and down) daily driver and snow monster.

Jeepin is how I got into RVing, got a truck camper to put on the back of my tow rig used it for a few years, now looking for a 34-38' class DP.

Old but shiny red 95 wrangler soft top 4 banger manual

We pull this baby behind a class C 28' and love it. Pretty much stock but so handy to get away from the camp site. Easy to pull and just getting a new readybrake system for it.

From one of my former posts:


We have a JK and a TJ We pull the TJ as it is my play toy. Hart top for winters and soft top for summer. Best toad you can get... IMHO.

I have had Jeeps all my life... Tried hummers for a couple of years. Traded our H1 and an H2 for the JK and TJ. Glad we are back to the basics.

Life is more fun in a jeep!
