Recommended Posts

Picked up a Jeep JKU and setting it all up as a new toad.

I know this is a site for coaches, but was wondering if anyone was interested in me posting the build on this?

Always!

Maybe I should create a new section for toads!

Yeah! Maybe. This will be our second, we did our Raptor last year. The jeep will be lighter and shorter

Ok - I’ll go first…  we full-time and our hobbies with the Jeep are focused on camping (places where the MotorHome can’t go and 4x4 wheeling).

Jeep JK upgrades include…

Rockhard 4x4 bumper with tow hooks and other tow stuff (BlueOx tow bar & RViBrake2.

Winch and a box of recovery gear  

TerraFlex 3” lift w/ Falcon Shocks

FrontRunner roof rack w/ table, and storage for ax, shovel,bbq, bbq tank, step ladder and storage boxes.

270 batwing awing
Rims & 33” tires. 
Some lights (and better headlights).

We also travel with our bicycles in the cargo area.

Oh yea…

those are fold out steps so I can reach the roof rack.

And I also replaced the fenders with solid metal ones - so I can put weight on the - to reach the roof rack. 
I had broken the attached points on the original rear fenders. 
 

I also forgot to mention that for camping we got a Deep Sleep for Jeep air mattress that fits in the cargo area - so when we camp from the Jeep- the rear seats go down, the front seats go all the way forward and the air mattress makes a nice sleeping arrangement for two.

I can probably speak for everyone,  yes we like that stuff.  Keep it coming.

Is this the same Jeep you mentioned a week or two back?

Yes, we don’t have it set up yet to tow. 
I have a friend looking at a used AEV bumper up in Portland tomorrow. I won’t get it till August I believe, but have lots of projects for it in the mean time. 
 

It’s a 2015 JKU Willys
