    Coastal Cruisers newsletter... March 1998

    The crap you find when you clean up a little... :D I don't even remember us ever having a newsletter, but apparently we did. Makes me happy and sad at the same time.

    Builds  10 years with the 74/after-the-fact build thread

    I realized I’m coming up on the 10th anniversary of buying my 1989 BJ74, and figured it was time for a first decade report card and after-the-fact build thread. In 2007 I’d been driving my ’85 BJ70 for 15 years. It had been the best vehicle I ever owned, but it was getting rustier and crustier...

    HDJ81 - which is the primary starting battery?

    Have a new-to-me '90 HDJ81, currently wiring up a solar install. I'd like to hook the charger to the secondary battery and use that one to draw fridge/ancillary power from. Have now heard conflicting reports which is which, so anyone know for sure?

    HF screwdriver antenna on an 80?

    Has anyone mounted a screwdriver on their 80 series? Where did you mount it? I have a Scorpion shorty I bought to install on my BJ74, had a nice mount built to utilize the old spare tire carrier bolts… then never installed it. Now I've bought an HDJ81, which I'd prefer to have the HF capability...

    Thanks John x2...

    I'm really happy with my new ATEB exhaust! Giant difference over stock. I asked for 2.5" aluminized mandrel bent with an Aero Turbine muffler, and for it to be tucked up nice and high. Well I got that! Straight down: flex tube and inside the frame rail: alongside the...

    for you guys with fridges

    I have a few week trip coming up, and I'm coming to the conclusion that waiting to win one in a raffle may not be the sure plan to acquire said fridge as originally figured. :D I may have to break down and buy one. So my question to those that have 'em: transit bag, "nice to have" or "crazy...

    Some of the Copper State guys had these at Moab and I had to have one. They are very cool. 1 hp peak, 3/4 hp running, 100% duty cycle, 1.5 gallon tank. Airs tires up pretty fast and can run 3/8 air tools. Best part - only $230 US shipped to WA state, then taxes at the border. Cheaper than a...

    FS: CO2 set up

    Anyone looking for a CO2 bottle set up? I put this together a while back, and as usual, never got around to mounting it in the truck, It's literally never been used. It's a 13lb bottle and regulator from Air Liquide. I don't recall how much I paid for it, but I'm sure it was too much :D Also...
