I miss the yellow, but my silver still does the trick.

Installed Check Corporation heated seats for my wife last weekend... actually they're pretty nice so no complaints from me.

The install took about 5 hours at a leisurely clip.

We are just getting started with our project. So far just got on the front bumper, next is the Readylift 4" front & 3" rear , we installed one of these for a customer and it looked great on his jeep. put on 315/70r17's Nitto's . Readylift drove great and was pretty cheap for a complete lift.

If you give a woman that sort of jurisdiction over your wallet when she is JUST your girlfriend.... what out my man, it only gets worse once you make it permanent!

Nice Jeep!!

Yellow Jacket

Well we finally got around to getting some stuff done. Went with ReadyLift SST kit and some Nitto 325/70R17 Terra Grapplers and added some gear alloy wheels with Rock Doors. Its our start so far. Going to spray on a raptor liner inside and out this fall, and use it as a undercoat, we do have to do something about the motor, intake and chip and exhaust for sure, these things really lack power but sure are fun, just like to have more power to pull the jet ski's with.

1upusa Bike Rack

I finally got all the stuff together to mount up our 1upusa bike rack. I'm setting it up to also tow a popup camper (due in about a month).

I dispise rattling hitches, so I modified this solid dual-hitch adapater from Curt with a 5/8-11 threaded insert so I can run this anti-wobble device from Drawtite. Normally, you'd just slide a nut inside the receiver, but no-can-do with a solid bar.

I'm running 33x12.5R17 tires on stock rims, so I had to put on a Teraflex adapter and Daystar bumpstops, So I probaby have more clearance under the spare than stock.






Note the Stowaway2 hitch tightener on the tow bar... very solid, no rattles.




Now on to the bike rack. This thing is like aluminum sculpture - absolutely beautiful.








And here we are with a 29er, 26er, 24er and 20er






Can't see the taillights

Going to have to see if I can find some strap-on lights of some kind...

I got the insert and tool from McMaster-Carr.

Luckily I could borrow the drill bit and tap from work.

Search for part number 91731A058 here: McMaster-Carr

Hi J,
Love you set up...Just sent you a PM...
If you put a pop up back there, will it clear the bikes for turns??

Most expensive mod so far

Livinlite Quicksilver 10.0

Quicksilver 10.0 All Aluminum Ultra Light Campers by LivinLite RV

We added the:
- Offroad package
- Cargo Deck
- Custom 18" longer tongue (for more space for the 1up bike rack above)

I'll get some more pics up once we get it loaded up for the weekend.




A few mods so far to get ready for a shakedown camping trip this weekend...

Peeled off the "feather" stickers with a hair dryer:

Before:



After:






Moved the battery box rearward to leave more clearance for the bike rack:




The offroad package normally doesn't come with a spare tire, so I had them order me a loose wheel/tire. I bolted it to the cargo deck by sandwiching it between a couple 6 x 6 x 3/8 aluminum plates.




I mounted 12 "L-track" pucks and rings around the cargo deck to lash stuff down.

Anchor Track, Airline Track, Motorcycle Tie Downs








Finally, I picked up a 48 gal and 24 gal Rubbermaid Action Packer cargo box for more storage.

First camping trip with the new Quicksliver. We hit Wilderness State Park in Michigan's lower peninsula with the fam.

The rig pulled well and I was able to pull most grades in 5th at 65-70mph.

I'm trying to figure out a way to carry 4 bikes and like the rack - do you have a stock hitch? And would it work without the dual hitch adaptor?

I have a stock hitch and a big 12.5" tire mounted.

Won't need the dual-adapter, but I think you'll need an extender.

I noticed this one in a different thread... looks interesting in that it's adjustable.

Hi J
It looks great but I think you did an AWEFUL lot to the pop-up/hitch set up when you could have easily left the pop up alone (no extending hitches, moving batteries) and put the bikes ON the pop up or made a reciever hitch in the back of the popup.

I am going to take a 7-inch receiver extension and fit it through the back of my pop up bumper (its a C frame type) and the actuall popup frame and attach to both. Now I will have have a 2 inch receiver from my 4 bike rack..done.
(I think you made a Space shuttle when plans called for a RC plane) Dont get me wrong it looks great and pretty cool.

As to your light light problem, at least when towing the popup, you are covered by the camper's lights.

Fair enough, but I want to take the bikes to the trail head while camping without having to take the camper too

Moreover, the aluminum frame on this particular brand of popup doesn't lend itself to adding a receiver.


I put some flush-mount LED taillights on a trailer harness and velcro them to the bike rack... I'll get some pictures this weekend.

Same mat, different "sticker". I think they were a few bucks more.

All the "stickers" fell off already anyway, so go with whatever's cheaper.

So you move the bike rack from the trailer hitch to your now freed up hitch on the Jeep when the camper is set up

Yeah the frame construction is a larger issue..grant you that. I struggled a little with making sure my bumper/frame combo was not going to twist..

If I need to I may add 2 1/4inch steel plates on each side to prevent any twisting forming essentially a big open box. (Gotta make sure I allow enough room for the pin though..

Good part is we both were set up and camping this weekend! Will post up pictures when I can get to my photos.

Here's the aux taillights I soldered up. I used some Optronix flush mount lamps from the local auto store and velcro them to the rack.

This is an awesome yellow! I was disappointed to see it replaced with Dozer in 2012. Hopefully the new yellow Pat mentioned was coming in the future is just as cool. =)

Love the lights. I worry about the same thing with my 1UP but I'm not as industrious to build something like that.

How does your OME lift ride? Also, why did you choose the LT over the HD version of the lift. I plan on installing that lift as well and I was told that if you have a hard top, you should use the HD lift over the LT. I'd appreciate any insight.
