Here is a photo of one of our bug out vehicles. It is a 1999 TJ. The other vehicle is a 1979 Dodge Ramcharger. The bumpers on that Dodge Ramcharger are 1/2" rolled steel weighing about 300 Ib. each.







The Jeep TJ has a Stealth Cobra CB, ICOM transceiver, Bearcat Scanner, Panasonic Toughbook laptop (Nav, maps, internet etc..) and a military compass just in case the high tech stuff lets us down :-) (old school rocks)

Just finished installing the new suspension package for increased payload:







All works well:

Man i love those Ramcharger's,I've had two over the years. A 1979 4X4 and a 1985 2X4 really liked the 79 model,it was a bitch getting thea all steel and glass roof off and on by yourself. Now i have a 1999 Tahoe 4X4 4 door nothing special and alot of miles and needs work,but it holds alot and and with a 4X8 trailer it should do what i need.

You are right badcarma those Ramcharger hardtops are a mother to take off, but once off what a rush. Mine has factory rollbars. It is a joy to drive in the summer.

Don't confuse my BOTT/SWIV with penis envy!
