Re: HID Headlights

I don't know if they should cycle through the range every time they're turned on (especially if they're off for just a few minutes while you pump gas, etc), but they should definitely do it the first...

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

I couldn't agree more! I loved it out west, Valley of the Gods and Monument Valley were breathtaking. You pretty much can't go wrong anywhere in Utah. To the East, my wife and I love the Outer Banks,...

Re: HELP!! Weird electrical issue

Night, it's either the ignition switch or the battery. I don't know when they changed the part and relocated it, but before 08 (maybe 07) the switch was lower on the dash and was a bad unit. If you...

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

I've seen them all at this point. This trip marked 49 states down for my dog and Jeep. They have not been to Hawaii, and likely never will. I have the rest of the Canadian provinces on the radar now...

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

Thanks. I've been an IRT fan since it came out, and it was part of the motivation to make this journey.

I started with the RR kit all-around, and like many who purchased before RR figured it out,...

Re: Approaching 90K...when to throw in the towel?

I kept my ZJ to 180K and my WJ to 150K, and both were well out of warranty for most of those miles. The ZJ I regret getting rid of, wish I still had it to build on, the WJ was a a bit of a POS, never...

Re: What are you towing?

Purchased a 26' TT this summer. Have towed it about 12K miles so far and camped about 40 nights in it, including a trip to Alaska (detailed report and pics here)....

Re: Fuel Tank reserve....

The 3 gallon 'safety' mark is correct. I was always curious why the max I had pumped into the tank was 19.2, even though the capacity was rated at 21.1 gallons. After an off-roading incident dented...

Re: HID Headlights

The calibration process you're describing is for the auto high beam feature, and it is a real PITA. The auto leveling for the HID's is simply a sensor based input signal run through a control module...

Re: to tow or not to tow

Did you have the class III installed or was it stock? If stock, it's likely a class IV, based on the 06 owner's manual. If it's truly a class III aftermarket installation, the max trailer weight is...

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

Thanks Megatron! It certainly took to the work without complaining, and was a blast on the haul road without the trailer.

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

Not really, I'm in the NW Burbs. When it came time to buy, they had the only black Overland with the dark khaki interior and DVD player within 200 miles. I wasn't going to special order, so I went...

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

Thanks man! Like all of us, I've done what I wanted to make it my own, and still love climbing into it everyday. What is a surprise to me still, is that at almost 5 years old, it still turns heads...

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

We took an Aramark tour to avoid the park's school bus fleet. The Tundra Wilderness Tour took us to Stony Hill Overlook, about 62 miles in on the park road, just short of the Eielson Visitor Center....

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

Thanks Alex. I'm just glad some of the pics came out well. We took so many from the car that came out blurry, or with bug splats on them, or mirriors in them, or whatever. We took about 3500 pics,...

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

Thanks Joe, it has been awhile! I haven't been on the garage in a long time, I check in every few months, but there haven't been many new ideas, mods, or discoveries on the WK in quite some time....

They're not kidding about this corner. Southbound it sits at the end of a long 9 or 10% grade.

Re: 49th State Down, Notes from Alaska

Here's some good pics of the road. The 'little' ripples are frost heaves, and if you hit a big one, one with a sharp angle, or a close together set going too fast, you'll wake up bleeding in the...

Re: Off road help

Yes you can keep the Bilsteins with OME or a 2" spacer lift, they're a common choice as the OME's are a bit firm for some folks' daily drivers.
