    Hi All, Great team meeting last night. Lots of work ahead but some more details: Our base camp for summer camp 2019 is WITHIN the Yorkshire Dales National Park! Heated shower blocks, campsite tuck shop, and several nearby pubs. We will venture out Thursday the 8th of August and again Friday the 9th to take in some of the best green lanes on offer. Both Lakes District and the Yorkshire Dales. If you have attended before you will know that local pub meals have proven very popular at this event. New this year we have reserved a private section of an iconic pub just a four minute walk from our campsite for up to 60 of us to have a themed night of fun and food. As we know we tend to overwhelm the local pub with our numbers so we have met with and made arrangements to pre-order our food for this night. Menus will follow. Saturday from base camp we will venture south to Parkwood 4x4 aka TONG. This legendary offroad site will be our off road site for the day with mud, burger van, rock climbing, the chance to test drive the newest Jeeps, 4x4 tuition, and more fun. Back to base camp afterwards for our legendary Saturday night Summer Camp festivities featuring our famous bbq, marquee, and entertainment. And of course our amazingly successful charity auction for Mountain Rescue! The area has a LOT on offer for pre and post Summer Camp holiday enjoyment. This year’s Summer Camp ticket will include camping Thursday to Sunday for one Jeep, two adults, and a tent, two days of green lanes, Saturday off road site - tuition - and test drives, and Saturday night entertainment. Options will be available at the campsite for extra people, vehicle, and some limited electric hookups. As we are camping within the National Park, pre-registration of your party will be important and more specifics will of course follow. Stay tuned for more details..............

    Having a lunch time beer with the wife in a seaside town in Poland and my glass came out Jeep branded. Then I noticed the outside tables. If anyone ever happens to be in Gdynia I’d recommend a visit to Browar Port bar.

    very true, it is important that if you are going to sell your modded Jeep, or any other 4x4, don't just stick with one club, there are many in UK, get your vehicle and its capabilities know, there is an increasing number of people looking to buy a modded vehicle, the more people who see it, the more the chance of you getting a genuine buyer, who knows what he is looking at.

    Hi Paul They have no punctures. They came off my new 2014 JK and have been stored since, they all seem ok on inspection. But £10 a tyre reflects that they're not brand new.

    Hi Everyone, Once I was aware that the Jeep was in safe (Alex's) hands, I submitted my Google Review; and they replied thereafter:

    I can honestly say that Unity Jeep Oxford have been fantastic, very helpful , plenty of wranglers and very knowledgeable on all things Jeep . I purchased my wife’s Renegade there and use them for servicing along with using their parts department quite a lot. Maybe they are bucking the trend on Jeep dealers ......

    Always disconnect negative first ( or positive if you have a very very old vehicle with positive earth!) This is to avoid the possibility of your spanner touching any metalwork whilst disconnecting the positive lead with negative (earth) still connected and causing a flashover. (for mains electrical work like domestic you would disconnect 'live' cable first, but it would most likely be made dead first anyway! unless you are an Electricity Company Authorised Cable Jointer who work with it live!) (you cannot 'fry' the electrics as there is no current path back to the battery, and if battery is flat as a proverbial pancake then there is no electrical energy available. If battery has some residual charge then ensure everything is switched off to avoid drawing an arc when disconnecting the negative lead from the battery. This will avoid 'spikes' getting into the electronics and avoiding igniting spurious petrol fumes or battery hydrogen if you have just tried charging the battery.) Also, with some vehicles make sure keys are outside the vehicle or windows open, cos some central locking activates when new battery reconnected and locks all the doors! And have your radio code handy to re-program your radio (although with my KJ it didn't matter cos radio fired up ok) Of course you could connect a jump starter battery to the system before you start, to maintain 12 volts whilst changing main battery. But now be very careful when disconnecting the main leads! (check out some u-tube videos about changing batteries, eg. the Tayna Battery one and others, like AA)

    @TimC has hit the nail on the head. The Wrangler is such a niche market that most dealers sell so few that they are usually only one page in front of the buyer with their knowledge. They positively run if they get a customer like any of us on the forum, I remember looking at my first potential JK at Hughes and asked if the JK was up to date on the issued recalls, only to be asked if it had had any recalls...... Hope to see some progress pictures as it developes

    I think maybe it's Wranglers that the dealers shy away from Rob , we had no such problem when we bought our Compass and even when we were considering a Grand Cherokee, but mention you’re interested in a Wrangler and they become invisible.... Looking forward to seeing what you’ve got lined up with Alex, did you go for a JK Rubicon in the end?

    Unfortunately it’s a common feature of many Jeep dealers that they appear to have little interest in actually selling Jeeps, and in particular Wranglers. So much so that when I bought my JK a few years ago I actually wrote to Jeep to tell them how dreadful and lacking in product knowledge some of their dealers were ( the dealer I eventually bought from was Westaway Northampton and they were OK, but it took me a few tries to find one that was) . I had hoped that things might have improved........

    Yeah, I was also taught “disconnect earth lead first, reconnect last” not sure why though....habit now.

    Thanks Chrisby. Tried acd they sent the wrong part and it was sent back today will try Charlton tomorrow. As far as I can tell jeep switched to an electric steering rack in 2016 and previous to that it was hydrolic before that. Here is hoping

    Post lots of pics Chris - if it turns out like yours, which I am sure it will, should be really good! Have fun and I’m glad it’s gone to a good home!

    No further mods as there nothing left to do... just cosmetic stuff ? Not sure if I’ll match the TJ to JK or do something different.

    Cleaned both Wranglers today ready for the Sun we’re supposed to get tomorrow, might be a TJ roof off sort of day ....? TJ then coming off the road for a month or two for a bit of a tidy up and some Raptor paint . Also Green Meany Shirts arrived today ?

    Just watched a review Very nice (In my opinion) Just shows how over priced the new Wrangler is !
  45. 1 point
    I know it sounds crazy, but you might be better off, to put it back to std, and sell the parts, selling a modified vehicle is never easy, and almost impossible to get much back for the cost of mods, the golden rule is to keep all the off parts, and make sure you can return the vehicle back to original, unless you are going to keep it long, long, long term. Maybe try to keep the look, but sell some of the more expensive parts.

    So now The JK is finished for a bit on the modding front , a little friend appeared ? The aim is for my son Charlie to learn a bit about mechanics whilst we work on it a make it how he wants it ready to be his first car. I might get to use it also ? Great TJ bought From a great guy (Peter) and fellow Jeep enthusiast/ Junkie just down the road from me. We’ll start a new thread on what we do, carrying on front the extensive list of improvements and modifications already done .

    I know exactly what you mean. After a while long while of driving the Jeep, your brain sort of makes you forget. I must admit I have thought about cutting the tunnel up but never got further than thinking. ?

    It was designed for the LHD market originally so when you jump in a LHD version you really notice the difference ! I found that when we hired a Jeep in Moab! Funny I was just talking to someone a few days ago about RHD & LHD cars and where they are designed to how good the pedal position is for the RHD market !
