Expedition XJ Build, Tech & Sources Thread

A little more progress this weekend. Came up with a design for latches/handles that I think will work. I hope.

Easiest way to do a two battery setup on an XJ/MJ is to get a Battery Tray from a postal (RHD) Cherokee and then put in a Specter Air Cleaner setup to clear your factory air setup from where the new Battery Tray goes then you can use any of a million wiring setups... I always prefer Painless though they are never cheapest. Use the search function and you will no doubt find a great tutorial... or just Google it and will no doubt be one of your several results.

Dragging up the past a bit here.... 😁

Cliff notes- had 15 months to plan a trip on the Rubicon. Had stuff pretty dialed in with 9 months to go. Had a fire and lost my entire shop- tools, on board air, spare parts, 65 nova, etc... Got shop rebuilt and most of spare parts to take. Big bummer is I had a bag like this going, and it was torched as well.

I'm 9 weeks out and feel like I'm forgetting multiple tools in my new bag. Can you snap a few pics of your labeled pockets, or even a content list if you got one? (I'm sure you've been harassed repeatedly for it, as this backpack is the best setup I've seen yet.) I ditched my tool case immediately when I saw this and you had such good luck/review of the bag.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: Expedition XJ Build, Tech & Sources Thread

Love this thread. Lots of good ideas here. My EXPO style build is a bit different, as i need room for 2 dogs as well as gear for 2 people. so i have to get creative with storage. I often use my backseat, so i cant justify removing it, so it usually stays folded down. I am working on a storage box to fit with it down that is also removable.

Re: Expedition XJ Build, Tech & Sources Thread

I have been reading this thread and have looked at some ideas. I am going from a mild trail build to more expedition type to go along with my hunting, fishing and camping.
