  1. Looking to have a custom enclosed trailer built and looking for input/names of builders. Trailer will carry one of 3 things at a time. Jeep Renegade XP 4 XP 2 Needs @ minimum: Generator Fuel station Water Tank toilet and shower Electric drop down bunk 2 air conditioners kitchen with stove and micro refrigerator
  2. 2 things I know of. A broken or weak wire on one of the injector plugs above the engine (inspect closely to find, Might have to remove some tape) or low oil level. They do make a repair kit for the injector wiring part.
  3. Run it. Have one about the same on our XP1K 4. Ran all last season in OW. No problem.
  4. Ya, 32" Rocktanes. Had to upgrade to Turner EVO axles and cv's to keep it together though. Stock cv's weren't strong enough for rocks.
  5. Once ya get her all dialed in, you'll have to come play down our way sometime. They do look pretty good rock ready
  6. We did the meal in a bag stuff from REI. (actually not bad to eat) Just add hot water and done. One pot for coffee and water and a little stove. Saved on room in the cooler for more important things
  7. One of those little water purifiers is handy also for getting water from streams and filling water jug at camp. Weight will be your biggest enemy on trail so try and keep it light and preserve ground clearance.
  8. There are quite a few bathrooms on the trail now..portable and permanent Maybe leave the wag bags and toilet here? Probably won't need them. We took some and never used them. That leaves more room for beer which in important. Also, dry ice is a huge help for keeping things cold. Although you probably won't see them, there are bears and you should have something to prtect yourself. Bring a rope and put all you food up a tree. Don't leave anything in your tent. We had more trouble with squirrels. If you leave anything on ground they will go after it. Even chewing through a backpack to get it.
  9. I think either way you'll be fine. In my opinion, the Rubicon isn't half as hard as some of the things we've done at JV.
  10. Did you ride to Laurel Lakes from Glass Creek? (Crossing the 395) YES-- I have only been there once, but got a pretty good lay of the land-- if you need specifics I can help... Beautiful 'vette. My 'vette was Electron Blue, but my '99 Camaro Z/28 was Navy Blue Metallic and it's always been one of my favorite GM colors. I really, really want to do the Rubicon now too. I need to at a minimum order skid plates and radius rods for the 1000 first though. The 900 just needs the starter changed (which I have) and it "should" be ready to go. I'd love to get 32"s for the 1000 before the Rubicon though... -TJ you better hurry up and get some parts ordered!you better hurry up and get some parts ordered! I put the factory UTV 3/8" plastic full skids on mine and like them. I did Sledgehammer on 29" tires! So I am not seeing the Need for 32". I have out of state family coming to visit July 14 for a couple of weeks so I am thinking maybe before then, ! I have the 3/8" Factory UTV on my 900 and like them a lot. I actually have their full kit with the A-arm and trailing-arm guards too. The full 1000 kit includes rock sliders, IIRC they are molded into the belly-pan on my 900 already. And yeah, we crushed some gnarly stuff out around Arrowhead with our two stock-tire 1000s. If I had good skids on it so I could be a bit more aggressive I can't see much stopping it that would be remedied by 32"s. But, but, but... the 32"s look so good! -TJ Yes they do And YES! I agree! Lots of chrome looks great too! LOL I have debated (lol) myself till I get a headache over taller tires-- its just so much harder on everything... Pro is more clearance though! I find that the RZR will 'slide' over just about everything. But I still may go bigger tires at some point. I am thinking that new duraclutch with 32"s ?? Thing is ya can't just throw 32's on there and call it good. I went through a couple cv's at first. Had to upgrade to Turner EVO axles to fix that issue (650.00) ea. I do go through belts now more often than I'd like but only when doing more extreme stuff.
