Lurking for a year, Time to post


I have been reading this forum for a year and I guess it is time for me to post some pictures. I am spending the winter in Apache Junction, AZ but Lee and I usually can be found almost anywhere in the country roaming around in a motorhome. She talked me into the lift and tires.

Thanks, I gave the guys at our plant an AutoCad drawing and they welded it up for me. We do this kind of fabrication all the time. We build Mobile Surgical Facilities that are full of custom parts. You can see one at AMoHS.com if you are interested. I am considering having them build me an attaching platform to mount a winch to the Blue Ox baseplate mount up front.

Nice ride. Looks like mine, but cleaner.

I'm digging the trunk. How easy/hard was it. I have zero use for my 3rd row.

Thanks for your service.

Could you be more specific on the Blue Ox thing?

The Trunk is fairly simple. It was not my idea, I saw someone on this forum about a year ago also do it. I removed the third seat, measured the size of the opening and had the guys build an aluminum case for the bottom with a partition to create an area for oil bottles across the front. I made sure that it was deep enough for the bottles. The lid is hinged about 6 inches from the back to allow for the lid to lean against the second row seat. We put a lock in the lid so that I could put my shotgun in there if I wanted to without worrying about it. I can carry an awful lot of things in this space. I have a blow up bed that fits in the entire back area with the second row folded in case we get stuck on the trail. I also carry parts, straps, fluids, MRE's, tools, and an air compressor. All kinds of things to use out in the middle of nowhere. The trunk is bolted in using the bolt that is centered in that area, so it cannot be removed without opening the lock. The roof pod even has pillows, blankets, sheets, and coats.

The Blue Ox baseplate is used to tow the Jeep behind a motorhome. It connects to the underside of the front end to the frame kinda like a skidplate. It has two round receivers that heavy inserts fit into to connect a tow bar. This is a heavy duty model and is rated for 10,000 pounds. I have D-Rings that I can connect to the inserts to act as tow hooks, but I am considering fabricating a mount that will connect to these two inserts and let me carry the winch in the back and simply connect it if I need it similar to the regular receiver winch mount. I think that with a tow rating of 10,000 pounds it might be even stronger that a class !V hitch. If this does not make sense I will take a picture.

Hey Huey,
Is that Blue Ox baseplate welded to the frame or bolted? Is it a specific fit to the XK or a kind of fit-all part?
Thanks for your service
