Dirty gets new shoes!

Dirty gets new shoes!

This post is a little late, but we’ve been pretty busy prepping for our overlanding trip so time has been scarce. You may be wondering why Dirty is getting the love when the plan is to use Klondike for this trip… Well, there are a few reasons but the largest being we return from our overlanding trip for only a few days and then head out for Topless for Tatas 9 in Dirty. With laundry and gear to repack, we…

Backroads and Abandoned Awesomeness

It might seem pretty trivial, but a mod is a mod! 😛 Tonight we added a splash of color to Road Runner and we couldn’t be happier! The orange made the blue pop a bunch and with it being vinyl it will be an easy removal should it be needed. Bonus points if you can pick out what else we did 😉 😈

Klondike finally gets a PTU/RDM skid!

Klondike finally gets a PTU/RDM skid!

Long ago when we first evaluated Klondike’s belly we noticed the PTU was left rather exposed. ( We know it’s actually an RDM “rear drive module”, but lots of people refer to it as the PTU.) Since the independent suspension often means the best ground clearance is right down the middle of the vehicle, the PTU’s location there meant we needed some protection on it for when we attempt straddling rocks and logs. Since the KL Cherokee remains largely unsupported…
