Dude your Jeep is becoming a total Bad Ass.

Congrats on the trailer.

I grabbed a 67 Johnson. Had a tailgate put on it. A lot easier to load and unload.

I've been using it to move and haul but it will be set to do that and camp.

Let me know if you want the military taillights. A buddy sells military stuff and they are water proof and pretty durable.

Arn't short trailers a joy to back up?

Ditchdoc Look up Australian built stuff. They have mastered living off road South Africa too have some crazy geniuses ways to live off the trail.

RKCWLER I would like to make a nice camp trailer behind the jeep. I have a harbor freight in pieces right now. I would like to make a teardrop type where you could sleep in it and have the cooking on the rear.
12-23-2014 02:30 PM
Gunner Those trailers look sweet. All I see is camping rigs in the rough.
I love talking engines. I really miss it. I worked for a Winston West nascar engine shop for a while. I was very surprised to find out the they didn't have many tricks I already knew. It was a fun career.

At least you said yet, because I said the same thing. The reason I got the Bantam is the factory tailgate.

If you weld the top of the runners together and then grind open the walls for about an 1 1/2" down and then remove the center of the plenum holes in the middle to match it will cut the reversion pulse length and move the rpm band up about 400 to 500 rpm with virtually no loss of bottom end. I got to play with these and the ford long runner setups a lot.

The TBI heads really have good low and mid lift numbers. But are pretty much turds for anything trying to go fast.
