I'm getting confused, posts for the 3-way thread are popping up in irrelevant threads.

Look at the bright side. At least you won't have to worry about being captured by that terrorist group, Procul Harum.

Hey Everyone,

I've had a challenging few months, and I'm more than overdue to give you all an update.

All the details of what happened and the path forward to Africa are in today's issue of JPFreek Adventure Magazine



I feel extremely lucky to be supported by new friends and family, without their support I don't think I would have found a way forward.

Tons of details in the coming days and weeks,

-Dan

Super excited for you and the help from Richard..... and definitely don't want to be a buzz kill but my cousin was planning a trip around Africa and ran into a spicy Cuba named Estaban who was gonna help make his dream a reality. 5 yrs and 3 domestic violence beefs later and those two are still living on a futon in my living room in violation of their restraining order. Just sayin'.

Here's the deal-

Contrary to what some of you may think, some non-tech threads are not to be screwed up with stupid off-topic comments... even in chat.

So... Next person to come into this thread with some juvenile bs comment will be banned. I'm not going to draw it out for anyone because we're all adults here. Just suffice it to say that you might want to think twice before hitting that "submit" button.

Some of you guys really should be embarrassed for showing such lack of courtesy and using JKO as your own litter-box.

OP- Moving to Scrapbook sub-forum.

I read your article and some of your blog at one point. I was a bit disappointed though. I like the tech aspects of your ex-merc diesel as much as the idea of old school trail breaking.
Unfortunately you gloss over the important details saying it is too complicated to explain.
Fitting a diesel was hard, no doubt, but how was it done? What was the biggest issue?
Why could you not pop the body and fit another? You know it fits, lifting the body takes a couple hours, not even a day. Had to have been cheaper,easier and faster than buying a new one and swapping your parts.
I am sure that your articles would be well recieved if you put a bit more actual information in them.
I started following you in instagerm, hopeful for some good pics of your adventure.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll take that on board and improve my posts.

I paid a mechanic to install the diesel, because it's over my head as a backyard mechanic. There were numerous issues and workarounds and custom fab jobs, all of which I wasn't very involved in, and honestly don't have the skills to do, or really explain.

I have no house, no tools, no job, and no ability to lift the body or do a major swap like that. Sourcing another OM606 would have been a month or more, as would have swapping everything over (oil pump, oil pan, injection pump with timing, adapter, etc. etc.). I don't have time or money for that. I burnt money every day I hung around waiting for it, and if I spent any more money or time on it, I wouldn't have enough to go to Africa.

With my current situation it just wasn't meant to be, and I had to choose between having a diesel JK, or going to Africa. It sucks, but that's the way it goes.

Thanks for the honesty, I was hoping to see how the diesel shop worked the body control module feed, but moving on.
When do you leave, and how are you getting your 'new' jk over the water?

There is nothing that needs doing to the BCM.
You have to trick the crank sensor (use a trigger wheel and the original sensor) and some people have to trick the cam sensor with another trigger wheel, some people do not.
Mine sometimes worked best with the cam sensor plugged in, sometimes best without it, though we also had problems with my TIPM that we discovered literally 30 mins before it blew up.
Look at what guys are doing who use a 4BT to trick the Jeep computers.

I was even told it's possible to delete lots of sensors from the stock PCM so even the check engine light won't be on - stuff like 02 sensors, etc.

Heading to EJS in a couple of days, then jetting to the east coast.
I'll load the jeep into a shipping container to get it across the ocean, exact details to be determined.
Hope to be in Africa for late May / early June.

I spent a few days in San Diego hanging out with John and the crew at Ursa Minor while the fitted and modified my J30.

To say that I'm extremely impressed and happy is a massive understatement.

I ran part of Hells Revenge yesterday, it was unreal.

I went into the Escalator, did trail work with great people from Tread Lightly then turned around and came back out.
I was told my Jeep would have gone right through, doing all the drive arounds obviously.

AEV 2.5", stock Rubicon 32" tires, jeep didn't scrape once.

I'm extremely happy to have gotten the Rubicon now, the crawl speed of low range 1st gear is impressive.

Hi all,

I had an awesome time at EJS in Moab, it really is a Jeep addicts dream.
I'm in Michigan now, getting closer to the coast to ship the Jeep over the Atlantic.

Living in the Jeep for a few weeks has promoted me to make all kinds of minor tweaks and adjustments for living convenience.

Space has always been at a premium, so I made a cutlery/tool holder on my Trailgator Tailgate Table, so I can leave often-used items there when the table is closed.



Let me know if you would like me to write up a HOW-TO article so you can make your own.

Hi All,

I spent a lot of time thinking about and researching wheel and tire choice for the trip.

I've written up a piece explaining all my thinking, and what I'm running.


I've also compared the stock Rubicon BFG Mud-Terrain in 255/75r17 to the BFG KO2 All-Terrain in 34x10.5r17


Read the whole article at: Tire Selection - BFG KO2 All-Terrain - JPFreek Adventure Magazine

I spent the whole weekend wrenching on the Jeep while it was sleeting outside.

On the advice of many, and with the help of the editor of JPFreek Adventure Magazine, we installed Rugged Ridge HD Ball Joints, U-Joints, Tie Rod Ends and drag link end.
While we were in there we put on new unit bearings so I don't have to think about them again for the whole trip.

The old ball joints took some convincing to come out!



We then installed a Rugged Ridge engine and transmission skid plate, which is very beefy and give me great piece of mind I won't crunch my oil pan.

Also put on all-steel black lug nuts and locking nuts. None too soon either, the crappy plastic caps were falling off the OEM lugs and were very hard to get off.

Finally I put on a set of neoprene seat covers.

I need to get moving further East, aiming to ship before the end of the month.

Some people asked for more details on the BFG KO2s in 34x10.5R17 that I'm running

My JKUR is heavy, I have not weighed it yet, but likely 5500-6000lbs I think.
I'm running 36 psi in the tires.
It was hard to hold the tape and the camera, the tires are 32" or maybe 32.25" at the highest point.




And with the AEV 2.5" lift, all four stock fender flares are smack on 37":



Let me know if there is anything else you want.

Height wise these are absolutely perfect for me, I am very, very happy with them now I've put a thousand miles on them.
