    Interesting project. I found this, which looks similar to what you have in mind. For me, it seems impractical for a roof top tent. I’m interested to see where you end up.

    Or, for about $60 all in, you could just buy a small Mr. Heater.

    Or one of those electric “back seat” heaters from Rampage, Rugged Ridge, etc. I think I’d prefer that over something than runs on fuel.

    Hi Guys,

    a heater like Planar 2D have some big benefits over the things you named.

    I have had used a heater like "mr. heater" and I cant recommend it. If you are sleeping or let dry alone the tent, maybe the gas or air heater will flip and starts a fire. Also this sort of heater gets very hot. Gas-Heaters also produce CO2 so you should never run one in a small room like a tent.

    Specialy in winter you have a lot of condensations water in you tent/on the tent walls. If you have a heater like the Planar 2D, you get warm dry air in and it move the cold, wet air out. Also the Planar 2D have a sensor, so you can pree sett a temperature you like. The heater will automatically adjust the power that is needed to hold the temperature you have set.

    If you are getting wet in the rain, you can hang your cloths in your tent and let them try. Its not for a week-end trip with some good weather. The Planar 2D Box I build is made for a longer trip with up to -10°, snow and ice.

    To run the planar I will use my car batteries, so I dont need to carry one extra. I also will made a quick connect to my fuel tank, so I just need to plug the planar in and everything work. Dont wanna carry extra diesel in my car.

    Hey,

    just some random stuff. In 5 days I my JK have to pass the road safety check. So I changed the hydraulic hoses against hoses with protection. They old hoses had a slightly rubbed part. I feel better now with it.



    I put some heat shrink tubing on it. I think it looks cleaner now.



    My passenger side rear brake rotor dont look good. Maybe its because of the bent axle shaft. With a bent shaft the brake caliper moves and the brake pattern looks really bad. I also cleaned and greased the caliper swim mount. Lets hope for the best. Would be nice if I don't have to buy a new break rotor.



    At least I finally got some battery covers. Looks cleaner now.




    For those who are interested in hydraulic assist. I think those rams a great. My JK is my Daily Driver so first I was very curios about the steering. But at they end I can promises you, that the steering feels better than before. The smal steering wheel corrugations you have to do are complete gone.

    I also made a quick video while driving on the Autobahn. I dont want to go faster because of the tires - not because of the hydro assist.




    A few pages ago I wrote that I wanted to go with a Warn 8274 winch. Because the 8274 don't fit the AEV bumper, the winch was mounted to the Cherokee. Finally I found a single thread where someone modified the AEV Bumper to fit the 8274. So stay tuned. For now on I will start posting photos of trying to fit the 8274 into the AEV bumper.

    Sample photo:



    Also, there is an update of our cares. We won't use the Wrangler for our overlanding trips and Hollidays. To replace the JK we bought a Toyota Landcruiser/Prado 150. It have a 2.8 liter Diesel, "old" 6 speed automatic with torque converter, low range and full time 4WD. Frame and some Bodyparts are the same as the Lexus 470 you can get in the US.

    We are quite happy so far. Way more space than in our 2 Door JK. Way more driving comfort, way more fuel effectively. I already ordered a 150 Liter spare tank, so we have 237 liter diesel on board. That should be a good range.

    I know it's not a Jeep. If the photos violate rules, please delete them.

    Yes! They are. I maybe go with a Gigglepin. Don't know if you can buy Gigglepin in the US. This is a modified version of the 8274. It have a "Compressed air freewheel", so you have 0 resisted when pulling the cable out. Also you have 2 Motor - so you have double the power. Also there a wider spools, that make mounting longer ropes easy.

    Wow. More than twice the cost of high end winches in the US. I suppose there’s a market, but I’d be hard pressed to spend so much for a winch.

    A little teaser: 40 Toyos and new rims

    Hey,

    just a little teaser. My 40" Toyo M/Ts and Bawarrion BonZ Beadlocks arrived. Should be a little challenging to fit this with my 2,5" custom suspension.

    I think I will go up an inch. Also I think I need some adjustable control arms for my rear, to move my rear axle a little more to my rear bumper.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
