I decided to start a new thread, to organize my thoughts and pictures a little better. My build philosophy remains the same: to create a dependable and capable overland vehicle used for weekend getaways, accessing remote trails for trail running, and 2-3 week-long expeditions that involve highway and backcountry access.



I have divided my build into three phases....



Phase 1 - TLC goes a long way - COMPLETE

1. Attend to key engine and structural needs

2. Complete refurbishment of the interior

3. New lights, front and rear, washer blades, etc.

4. Black out the wheels (or replace them)

5. BFG KM2s



Phase 2 - Strengthen and outfit for performance, capability and utility - [/U][/B] - COMPLETE


1. Equip new armor

2. Install OME Suspension

3. Add snorkel

4. Off-road/driving lights

5. Roof Rack for RTT and awning

6. Personal Touches



Phase 3 - Recovery, Rejoice and Enjoy! [/U][/B] - [/U][/B] - COMPLETE

1. Winch

2. Seat Covers

3. Storage Compartments

4. Exploration!



SHORTY AS OF December 2015

This is a little out of order but here are pics of the custom fit ARB Touring Rack that is going on the shorty. Very happy with the work. The gray will be painted black.
