My BII that I just picked up a few weeks ago.
6" lift and 33" MTR's
Looking at going the Expo route with it. Something to get me to the trails and out camping at a moments notice.

Should be a fun trail rig. You might want to lose the steps though. If you hit ground or rocks with them you'll probably rake em off.

I hear ya. The kid that put that on was a horible welder. Hit one rock and it'd fall right off. It's on the list of things to remove.

Another is he put an electric fan in it. And wired it straight to a switch. On/Off is all you get. Need to pic up a electric fan controler.

You'd be amazed at some of the things you can find on these types of trucks. like Bolts that are half way in because the previous owner could figure out to tighten them. Ive seen many of these incidents.

Don't know what I really want it to end up to be. Don't have much for rocks here in WI. But we do have a few good trails around. Tons of mud, but a BII was not made to mud bog. I think she's going to end up a capable trail machine/Exploration rig. Something I can get to a trail and have some fun, camp any where, and maybe get me out on the lake ice fishing in the winter. Only time will tell!

I own a pair of BII's myself. There are a couple of good sites dedicated to these trucks that give great ideas for modifications. I'd love to shove a diesel into one of these rigs.....

I would lose the TTB and put in a solid axle, then that thing would be sweet and then all you need is a 4bt

I see dozens of 4bts every day. And dream of finding a some way to permently borow one from the plant were I work. A bII with a new 4bt would be ausoume!

For now the ttb stay's. The plan is to build it into a reliable exploration rig. But down the road I'd like to swap in a D44.
