    VIDEO : BENEFITS of a BASIC JEEP

    Great video you guys. Great points regarding the benefits of a stock Jeep. My first Jeep was a stock TJ with a manual and though I have a JKU on 37s now, my old TJ has a special place in my heart. I’d probably still have it if it hadn’t been stolen. I know it’s a cliche but sometimes less is...

    Parking light not working--looking for electrical diagnosis advice

    Ok thanks. I don’t have anything spliced into the drivers side tail light. I took your advice with the multi meter and here’s what I found. There’s a white wire with a orange stripe going into the connector from the factory wire loom. This appears to be the power wire and it’s not getting power...

    Parking light not working--looking for electrical diagnosis advice

    My wife noticed that the parking light on my driver's rear tail light wasn't working while we were out camping last week. I put a new bulb in today and it still doesn't work (tested the new bulb in the passenger side tail light). The brake light, reverse, and turn all work, it just doesn't...

    Help Wanted - Alpine Loop & Moab

    For Ouray area, I’d say take Black Bear down into Telluride and then take Imogene Pass back to Ouray side. That’ll be a full day but sites will be spectacular. If you want something with a little more wheeling challenge take mineral creek to Poughkeepsie Gulch. From there go Hurricane Pass and...

    1952 m100 Jeep Trailer build

    Tub and frame painted. Also did raptor line on the bed and inner fenders. Came out pretty good. Kind of wish the green was a little more towards a darker olive but I’ll live with it. Next week, I’ll try and get the timbren brackets installed. I started filling out the paperwork to get this thing...

    1952 m100 Jeep Trailer build

    Since I had a whole new frame built for the trailer I decided not to re-use the old axle/shock mounts but instead try out a 1 ton Timbren axle-less suspension set up. Here’s a mock up of a wheel mounted up to some extra square tubing I had laying around. I can’t wait to get trailer...

    1952 m100 Jeep Trailer build

    Update to the trailer build Sandblasting done. Got my first look at it today. Not too many secrets revealed, pretty good shape overall. It looks really strange with the paint completely stripped off. The floor of the trailer doesn't look as bad as I initially thought, leaning towards keeping it...

    1952 m100 Jeep Trailer build

    More work done yesterday. Took off all the electrical, parking brake mechanism, and a few other odds and ends. Turned the tub over and whoa....say hello to a hell of a lot grease and northern New Mexico soil: Bad news: found a crack in the side rail frame hidden underneath shock mount, hence...

    1952 m100 Jeep Trailer build

    Thanks. The tub is in good shape with a few minor dents here and there. If you rock it back and forth, it feels quite stout structurally speaking. The deck of the tub is in tact but it has a lot of rust and someone drilled a number of holes in it. There are several coats of paint on this thing...

    1952 m100 Jeep Trailer build

    A few more shots of some neat features, like the ID plates: Spent some time yesterday stripping things off the trailer in preparation for sandblasting. Overall, things were in pretty good shape considering how old this is and who knows what it’s been used for. Tires and fenders off...

    1952 m100 Jeep Trailer build

    I picked up a 1952 M100 Jeep trailer a few weekends ago and decided to make a thread devoted to converting it to an overlanding/camping trailer. Overall thing is in pretty good shape despite it’s age. My plan is to turn it into a camping rig for now ( I hate packing and unpacking the Jeep every...

    Seeking advice on military trailer purchase

    Well...it does appear to be OD. I found a spot where it’s showing through. The inside of the bed is in really bad shape with several layers of paint. It won’t be possible to take off the top layers and preserve the original, but it’s cool to see. BTW, my dad fought in the Korean War, so it’s...
