I'm looking at an 05 V8 w/ air suspension.
I have a 2006 with the V8 and steel suspension and this February will be two years that I've had it. The only two issues I've had with it have been a leaking valve cover gasket and a leaking camshaft position sensor gasket.

The dealer actually sent a tow truck 112 miles to my house to get it a week after the valve cover gasket was replaced because it was leaking oil onto the exhaust manifold so bad that smoke was pouring out of the hood. I kind felt bad for them because they found it leaking when it was in for a transfer case software update and something else so they changed it for me.

And, a few weeks later, smoke started pouring out again so I called them up thinking the gasket was leaking once more. So they sent a tow truck to get it but come to find out the CPS gasket on the back of the motor was leaking onto the y-pipe. They still paid for everything and charged it to my extended warranty. That sucker right there damn near paid for my extended warranty since the labor charges alone were just under $2000 since they had to drop the motor and subframe to get to it. The damn parts were only like $197.

Other than that its been several times to have the transmission and key less entry looked at for the aforementioned problems but they've never been able to find anything wrong.

Day after turkey day. Back way to crown king for some patty melts.

Bone stock F-150 with 6 people behind us, made it, but using all the bypasses and alot of good spotting. At one point I was riding in the bed spotting from there, only damage was to the running boards.

Quite the traffic jam out there, ran into a Land Cruiser club and a jeep club.

I LOVE taking the back way up to Crown King, Its such a beautiful trail. I don't know how you rode in the bed over all of that in a stock F150 though, I did that once on a Sedona trail that was way milder than that and I constantly thought I was going to fall out.

(zoom out once)

There's a trail that starts from Lake pleasant that heads striaght north to crown king, there's a smoother dirt road that kinda heads NE out of crown king through cleator and then heads east through Bumble Bee to the I-17. That's the road taht the new Camaro was caught on film before it was for sale to the public.

haha, no. I was spotting the F-150 from the bed of the truck in front of him. It was a lot easier than stopping and getting out to spot him every time.

Defintely a lot more exciting.

Ooh, Crown King - fun trail. That was where I took my offroad trailer out for it's maiden voyage. Pintle hitch worked great.

The split wheels are great and I applaud the choice to stay with a smaller skinnier tire. It looks much more purposeful with the way it was modified as a whole.

Though I do have to say the white on tan is kind of strange. The white wheels looks great on the green D90 with the white roof but I feel it would be even better if it's the matching the body color with this Jeep.

The previous owner really put some thought on modding this. Looks fantastic and really wouldn't change anything.

Yeah, the steelies would, by definition "look better" in a more paint matched color...but in my book, what they recall and what they invoke makes them look cooler as they are than they ever could in another color.

I wouldn't change 'em.


















...although I do have a weird desire to see them in bronze, like a Hi Hat.

Yup, I can't get over Whitford's Jeep. It's so...... safari, I love it. I'm going to paint my steelies white now.... Ok no I'm not.

The parts for my XJ have been here for a few days.. Sadly, it's finals week and I'm too busy getting on OT, I mean studying, to slap these parts up.

Next I need to sort out the misfire and go junk yarding for a 'new' front driveshaft.

Maybe after that I'll start trying to figure out how I'll afford my next round of goodies... F/R bumper, winch, tire carrier (see /R bumper), rear Aussie locker, some expedition stuff.... Who knows.... Ugh I REALLY want one of those roof pop up tent things.

I know my next goodie is going to be an Aussie locker. I'm sick of being stuck and getting out to discover one wheel spinning. Even having only a rear locker will be a vast improvement.

Speaking from the sad perspective of somebody who's been there before and blown that money, just buy a jeep built at least halfway how you want it already.

I was about $40k into my XJ by the time I finished it. It would sell for about a quarter of that now. Find a Jeep with that ish already bolted up and buy that. I know it takes some of the fun out, but it's really, really worth it if that's your eventual goal.

Definitely not putting 40,000 into an XJ that I got for free with 270k miles into it.

I know people that can help me make the bumpers, sliders, other misc armor for the price of the materials, beer, pizza, and a little cash. The Aussie is what... Around 400 bucks... I already have a Chrysler 8.25 which is plenty for having 33's (maybe 35's next set) in Florida.

So far I'm in it for gears, tires, lift, replacement parts for the **** rusty's makes. If I keep it under.... 7g's I won't be butt hurt. I've got around 4 in it now, not including random maintenance ****. I'm trying to keep it an ultra budget build... And I'm not talking about extreme 4x4 budget either.

Your XJ is way bigger than I want mine to ever be, which is definitely no insult.. That's a bad ass jeep.

Thanks man. But don't kid yourself about the budget. Whatever it is, it's going to be double the amount of time, and double the amount of money that you anticipate. That's such a cliche phrase because it's true.

The money adds up, because you're going to upgrade, you're going to wheel, then break, then replace, then break again, then realize you need to upgrade....then comes tougher trails, then comes more broken parts or the realization of a need for better ones.... and sooooo onnnnnn.

I did the little 3" lift and 31" mud tires thing. Thought "dang ol' woo, look at meh go". Then came a 4.5". Then came 33's. Then came broken axles. Then came super 30/8.25 kit. Then came 6", and 35's. Then came lockers and gears. Then came broken axles. Then came a D44 and 9". Then came 37's, which meant cutting. Then went the t-case, and trans. Then came new ones, lol....

Eventually it became HP60, 14 bolt, Chromoly joints and shafts, yet more Detroits and gears, then the coilovers, and so forth.

It's a pretty slippery slope, and you never intend to spend the money. It just happens.

I hear what you're saying, maybe I shouldn't get those 35s then. I'll head myself off at the pass.

If I want to go bigger I'll remember to skip all the bull**** and head straight to the Dana 60s with 44s a dual t-case and coilovers

Stick with the 33's, haha. Unless you want to walk the green mile, those, a winch, and at least a rear locker will get you where you want to go.
