  1. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    Fun local show at the NAPA
  2. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    Possible solution for a giant key fob that opens too easily in the pocket. Beautifully made.
  3. Things I don’t like about my new Gladiator

    The vibration in the steering wheel from the stereo doesn't bother me, but it did surprise me the first couple of times I noticed it. I thought there was something wrong with the Jeep. Auto Park is top of my list of annoyances. I don't like anything about it. I'm looking at ways to disable it...
  4. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    I got a couple full size spares set up today. I previously picked up four take-off rims, bought a Mickey Thompson TPMS for the second wheel, and ordered a matching Falken AT3W tire. One surprise is that the spare on the truck didn't have a TPMS installed. So one of the wheels doesn't have a...
  5. Transfer case not staying in 4L or 4H

    I went out on the back lawn to try it. 4L is tough to engage but stays once its in. Then I had a really hard time getting back to 4H. When trying 4L again it would pop back to neutral again easily. I held the shifter in 4L and drove forward. As soon as the Jeep moved it stayed engaged. Shifting...
  6. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    Test drive in logging country this past weekend was awesome.
  7. Transfer case not staying in 4L or 4H

    I've had my JTR for less than a month and have only tried to use the low gear a couple times. On both occurrences the transfer case seemed like it had shifted into 4L but it was actually in neutral. Reading through these posts I want to get out with the Jeep and do some controlled tests to see...
  8. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    Here are a few more photos, the switch box and radio brackets installed.
  9. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    In the cab I have two items to add. The first is a small bracket to hold the Baja light switch. The second is a bracket to hold two way radios that I use on some long trips. The radio bracket will be a part time item, only being in the truck a few months at a time. I started with the radio...
  10. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    Electrical updates under the hood are done. The last feed I wanted to add was a dedicated battery feed for two way radios. Here are a few last photos.
  11. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    Here's a few photos of the power cable from the battery to the bed. I used a nice spool of black and red 12 guage wire, a waterproof connector, and a waterproof fuse holder; all should be good for 30 amps. I got 22 feet of 3/8" wiring cover from my local hardware store pretty cheaply and had...
  12. Do you think this will work? BED POWER!

    I've built this watertight box for bed power. I'll have a single plug in location on the passenger side near the tailgate. The box also has a pass through to plug in an LED work light I have.
  13. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    Wiring through the firewall and connecting to the battery: There is a larger grommet near the brake booster on the driver's side. I drilled a 3/4" hole in this and used a watertight cord grip. On the battery terminals I added some extenders from Quadratec. I have connected the winch and Baja...
  14. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    Last week I discovered a bent cooling line for the transmission. The jeep has around 1,000 miles now, I haven't done anything to rough the truck up yet, so I'm wondering if it was like this from the factory or transit. I have an appointment with my local dealership this week to look at it.
  15. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    For my hunting platform I want bed power available. I decided to mount a single connector near the blank cover for the factory option. With the hunting platform installed I've build a power box that can be plugged in. The box has a cigar lighter type port, two USB charging ports, a voltage...
  16. Do you think this will work? BED POWER!

    Same for my Rubicon without the bed power. No wiring in place.
  17. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    Next up are some Baja lights for the front. I wanted a pair of their LP6 lights but those are out of my price range. Their Squadron Pro kit seemed like a better fit for my budget. I went with the Driving/Combo lights in amber. The wiring harness that comes with the kit includes connectors at...
  18. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    This is the first vehicle that I've put a winch on. I have a Warn 8274 for my CJ5 but it needs to be rebuilt (both the winch and the CJ), so it's never been mounted. For the Gladiator I decided to go with the Warn VR Evo 12. I know it's the cheaper family of Warn winches, but I am not rock...
  19. EgulAye's mild hunting build (is it an overland build?)

    I built a wooden platform for hunting trips, which hopefully gets used often. In reality it would only be for a few weeks in the fall. When we do hunting trips in northern Maine it helps to be higher up so you can see over slash piles along the sides of the roads etc. The platform is made to...
