if I'm not mistaken, that's called the Toyota Chinook. It was a purpose built camper from back in the 70's and 80's. Could be wrong but I did have a buddy not long ago who was looking at buying and restoring one of these. Looked like fun.

I know how you feel, on my 5th jeep. Almost feels like a death in the family. Lol
But the new jeep will make it all better. Always does that just means you get to do the mods again. Happy happy joy joy.
Other than the sad news I hope the move and everything is working out well for you guys.

I thought I'd post a little something in here. I'd like this Wilmington thread to have a little more excitement and I like the "what did you do to your TJ today" thread so here's what I did this week -

Throttle body/IAC removed and cleaned, manual transmission fluid change (black goldschlager to nice lookin oil), basic oil change, installed my new VR8000 warn winch, wired up new KC lights for the windshield, took it to the trails and had it towed to the shop due to clutch problems :P When I get it back I'm changing spark plugs

What have you done to your jeep lately?

The clutch problem ended up being the hydraulic in the master cylinder. Got that replaced and it feels better than it ever has. Changed my spark plugs Wednesday night...engine sounds pretty

Yeah just hit 115,000 so it needs a full tune up. My neighbor has a jeep Cherokee with the same engine and says he is about to hit 500,000 miles...so that makes me feel good! Going to hit the trails today but I'm not in Wilmington

This past Sunday I found a little spot off of Funston Rd off of 133 in Brunswick county heading toward South Port. Not great, but it is rimmed by sandy walls you can climb up and over, kind of like a big sandy bowl. I'd guess a couple acres in size total. And there's a shallow pond on one side (see pic). I make no guarantees about it being legal. There are a lot of other random trails off Funston as well, mostly for logging. I think if you took the time you could find a lot of other trails to ride in that same general area off 133. We got our jeep fairly muddy from a trail in the Brunswick Nature Park - just take a right at the stop sign after you enter the park. The trail eventually leads to a gated access point a little further up on 133. If you can't make it around the gate then just turn around and ride the trail again. Good fun. Google Earth seems to be a good means of finding trails, but I doubt any one of them is legal. Ride at your own risk. I'd like to hear if anyone else has found decent jeep playgrounds in the local area.

Are you talking about backwoods? Heard they weren't allowing vehicles in there anymore...battery park is supposed to be really nice but I'm not sure if they're open yet.

Carolina Trail Stalkers, it is time to return the favor to our Wilmington Crew. Our October Meet -n- Greet will be hosted by Eddie Dorsey at Buffalo Wild Wings in Wilmington. The last time we went to Wilmington, they put quite a shindig, and I bet it will be no less than great this time. Looking forward seeing as many of you there. As you know, we will convoy together from Jacksonville to Wilmington.
Copied and Pasted from there Facebook page. It start at 1pm at the BWW off Old Eastwood Road

Hello everyone, my Wife and I are moving to the area in January so I'm glad there's a Wilmington group! We are currently in Raleigh and have a really active group of guys here (Raleigh area wheelers - facebook) so I'm looking forward to getting more beach time in! See you in January!
