I once knew a man named Pete Trasborg.

In 2002, a group of us from Jeepaholics Anonymous planned our first ever trip out to Paragon Adventure Park here in PA. On that trip I made some friends that have stood the test of time. One of those friends was Pete Trasborg. Then just a guy, a few years older than me, from NJ. With years of jeep enthusiasm under his belt already. An eagle scout, with a love of the outdoors, and jeeps. With so many similar interests to my own, we were destined to be more than acquaintances.

TJ/LJ Door Switch Defeat hack.

You have a Jeep Wrangler, if you're reading my articles, you probably at least have some interest in off-roading, and maybe I'm making assumptions here, but you may have at least considered taking your doors off.  If you've tried this on a TJ you've probably noticed that your door switches are a little difficult to disconnect.  I tried it, the passenger side seems possible, but the drives side is just plain old difficult to get to.

TJ/LJ sunrider latch-pin hack.

Spring is here, and this past weekend, I wanted to take the top down on the LJ and take my daughter for a ride.  So I started the procedure of learning the LJ's soft top.  I bought the Jeep this past december, so I hadn't had the chance to take the top down yet.  So this was a first.  The top looks pretty similar to the JK's top, so I didn't expect any surprises.  Then again, you never do right?  That's what makes them surprises.

TJ Gas Filler Hose hack.

So, apparently some re-design in 2005 at Jeep caused this issue.  When you fill your TJ's gas tank all the way up to full, it spits about half a cup of gas at you.  Spilling down the side of your Jeep, hitting the fender flare, and maybe your shoes.  This is annoying, messy, and over time, costs money! 

Sold the JK.

It's been a little while since I've posted, and something grave has happened.  I've sold my 2013 JK.  It's ok though, it's made way for a new project.  My new DD and weekend wheeler is a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited, or LJ as theyre known in the community.  There's a long story here, but I'll just say that the 2013 was a very nice vehicle, and I'm sad to see it go, but the burden of the LJ is much lighter, and with some recent family changes, it just makes more sense.  On the bright side, it should make for a more interesting project, as I may actually have some money to spend on upgrades!

Rocker Protection

Never underestimate the value of good rocker protection!  At the end of August (less than 2 weeks from now) we're taking the JK up to the NCAOAAA off-road park in Northumberland County.  DIYJ is nowhere near ready, it'd be impossible to get it ready for the trip, maybe with unlimited funds..

Tub removal.

Well, I figured out how to get the tub off of DIYJ this past weekend. I was fighting with space, the Jeep sits in a pretty confined place, and I wanted to be able to lift the tub up, and roll the frame out from beneath it. I thought I'd use my engine hoist, but that proved to be problematic. I ended up with Ratchet straps, up to the floor joists above the garage. It's working pretty well, you can see it here:
