Looking for fellow jeepers in the panhandle
1 Attachment(s)
Just finishing my build on a '94 yj. I was looking to help out and wheel with some other jeepers in the panhandle. I'm no expert, but pretty handy in the shop. My yj has gone from stock 2.5L4 banger to 355CI SBC with 700R turbo 400, NP 205 TC, 3/4ton axles. Just seeing if there is some other people with the same interests. ThanksAttachment 86137

Thats a sweet Rubi. We're considering trading an 07 tahoe for one. We have been looking at them for awhile. Are you in floydada or utah now? I've got some buds in utah also, around the Logan area.

what kind of fabricating did you have to do for the np 205? most np 205s I have seen are for the passenger side where the shifter arm comes up. I wanna do a 350 sbc/sm 465/np 205 swp in my 92 jeep this spring.

Sorry, Bam-Bam I just saw your post. My jeep was a 5 spd, so when I pulled the plate from the hump, the opening was large. After my install , I just measured and cut a piece of sheet metal for the opening and rolled it to fit the hump. Its not difficult,but its a hit or miss thing just keep trimming till everything clears. I then found a shifter boot on ebay. Mounted everything. I did silicone the replacement sheet metal cover. After bedlining the interior, it looks factory. Hope this answers your question. Hardest part was coming up with my support crossmember design. I incorporated the support into the stock skid plate.

Rosita, on the canadian river mainly east of the bridge, but a bunch went out yesterday and they went west of the bridge. Its north of Amarillo on 287, if you didnt already know. We are looking into different options for next outings. Sayre OK has a nice ORV place and its about 90 mi. We have a trip planned for Aug to go to Red River, NM for a long weekend of wheeling. We try to wheel once a month during the summer and have jeep work days at least once a month during the winter. Your more than welcome to join us as we are the unclub. Get on face book and look for Panhandle Jeep coalition.

Hey drew11 I just relocated to Borger from Mississippi, I'm gona be here for a couple years or so working. I don't have my jeep up here yet but hoping to go home soon and get it. Once I get it here gona be ready to wheel some and was wondering if Lake Meredith was a good place. Here is a pick before my tires and rims.

Good looking yj. We do some wheeling around the canadian river, north of amarillo on 287. You can keep track of us on facebook under Panhandle Jeep Coalition. Just ask to join and Don or I will approve you. Would like to meet you and do some wheeling. The club has a play day on sept 20th I believe. This is my busy time of year being a hunting guide. If I dont have hunters in then Ill be there. Come on out and join in the fun even without your jeep. Always room for 1 more. Glad to have you.

I'm new to the panhandle and new to jeeps
I'm taking the new Jeep to Palo Duro to mess around this weekend with the family. I would love to find some good Jeep spots in New Santa Fe, Taos, Red River, etc.
