Being an avid four wheeler, I live by my motto of restore, break, rebuild. My latest challenge was rebuilding the many years of abuse and neglect associated with my recent purchase of a Jeep CJ 7. Among many things needed that were purely cosmetic, I decided to get it up and running. My Jeep was equipped with a strong V 8. This is a common swap for some,but it was the selling point for me. The engine was running fair and the drive train was fine. No over heating proved that the coolant system was functioning and it visually seems to be holding tight on all other fluids because there were no puddles on my driveway. The only thing left for inspection was the brake system. A stronger engine means faster acceleration and sometimes the ability to tow, as the CJ’s chassis is rated to tow up to 2,000 lbs. However, the ability of the Jeep’s brake to bring things to a safe halt may be below what it should be. This is a scary issue for me coupled with the fact that I will be putting larger tires and rims on my rig. Most people forget that bigger tires and rims may call for a brakes upgrade.

As a general rule, if the brakes on your Jeep were good before the swap, they will probably adequate after the swap. However, many CJ’s had questionable brakes from the factory. It is up to the individual doing the conversion to ascertain whether or not to upgrade the braking system.This is where I fail. Being a Bronco fan I had no knowledge of Jeep brakes but was willing to learn.

I heard stories of the ultimate bulletproof rebuilds, brake upgrades,substituting Nissan Maxima and 300z brake parts but being a novice to Jeep brake replacement I chose to go with a stock rebuild. Taking pointers from the Jeep gurus on many forums,I set out to rebuild with stock parts and upgrade where my pocket book or my wife would allow. I found a web site called Xtremeterrain.com and began to root through for the much needed parts. After hours of looking and cross referencing I located the parts. The Xtremeterrain website was clear and fully stocked for any option. I surfed and checked out many parts that were labeled with enough info for me to make an intelligent decision and not break the bank.

Days went by as I waited to be assisted by anyone who stopped by my house. I’m not a master mechanic so it did take much longer than I thought but the parts went on without a hitch. Today I kinda smile when people say “hey nice rig” . I put in many hours. Restore,break,rebuild. Jeep life!

Kegan Baker


If you have been following the Featured Jeeper blogs you will see one thing that is shows tons of diversity, the age of Jeep off roading enthusiasts… from the young to the old, one thing that is always the same is the love of it. Today’s Featured Jeeper is Kegan Baker. Read on to get to know this young Jeep enthusiast and catch a glimpse of a little softer side of Jeepers. Just because you are into extreme sports like off-roading doesn’t mean there is not a soft side under all that adrenaline. .

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: A little about you Kegan.
Kegan Baker: Hi, I am 22 years old, single and have a wonderful 4 year old son. I am a Railroad Contractor and reside in Tennessee

XtremeTerrain: What type of Jeep do you run?
Kegan Baker: I run a 1998 Jeep Cherokee “XJ” Limited

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Favorite spot to off road?
Kegan Baker: Favorite spot is Windrock Offroad Park in Oliver Springs, TN.

XtremeTerrain: Favorite off roading quote?
Kegan Baker: Favorite quote would probably be “this side up” or “Don’t worry that sounds normal.”

XtremeTerrain: If you could have any modifications done, what would they be?
Kegan Baker: If I could have any kind of modification done, I would like a Dana 44’s front and rear with 4.88s and ARB lockers.

XtremeTerrain: What was your best/worse modification if any?
Kegan Baker: Best modifications I have done have been Chromoly shafts in my D30 along with 4.10s and a ARB air locker; Super 35 kit in the rear also with 4.10s and a ARB locker.
Worst mod would be putting lockers and Chromoly shafts in the D30 / 35 instead of just paying a little more for D44s; Warn front bumper with XD9000I winch “old style”; and Warn rock sliders, 4.5 in. Rustys short arm.

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Do you belong to any off roading organization, if so which one(s)?
Kegan Baker: I’m looking to join several local off-road clubs once my jeeps complete, or at least closer to being finished.

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: How old were you when you first started off roading?
Kegan Baker: First started wheelin at age 14, rode dirt bikes and 4-wheelers until I was 22. It was ten I decided to sell my built 1995 Mustang GT and get into jeeps, and rock crawlin. No regrets!

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Why you love Jeep Off Roading?
Kegan Baker: I got into Jeeps instead of anything else because of the massive aftermarket support. The fans and the people that are all into jeeps is more like one big family, especially at Jamborees. Everyone helps everyone else, give tips, share modifications, and stories. There is never a dull moment!

Kegan Baker


XtremeTerrain: Any off roading story or incident you would like to share.
Kegan Baker: One off roading incident that comes to mind is when I got stuck between 2 rocks on a local trail. I broke a front axle shaft then my rear driveshaft “all within about 15 seconds.” I had to winch & be towed 2.4 miles back to the trail head where I removed my broken shaft and rear driveshaft and drove back to camp with one wheel drive. Lesson learned? I now carry extra axles and u joints!!

Note to readers from Kegan: The pictures shows I am running BFG a/ts which is NOT my normal tire, I run 33/12.50 Baha claws for wheeling, A/T rest of the time. I drive my jeep 1500+ miles a month and the BFG wear much better on the highway.

Kevin L. Marchant


Today’s Featured Jeeper is none less then Kevin Marchant. Kevin comes to us from Missouri. Yet another family that loves the adventure off Jeep off roading – allow me to turn this over to Kevin as he shares his life and his jeep.

Kevin L. Marchant


Hello, a little about me you say… My name is Kevin L. Marchant. I am 32 yrs old, married (10+yrs) with 2 kids, one of each, 9 and 7 and they both love my TJ. My daughter has always had fun going off roading with me, but this summer she and her brother seemed extremely excited every time they got to go with us. My son has always loved the jeep; pretty sure it’s the only vehicle he remembers me owning.

Kevin L. Marchant


We play in a 02’ TJ with a RE SF 4.5” lift with a 1” body, and motor mount lift, Tom woods supper shorty, my own belly up skid (Rev A we call it.. trust me its UGLY…). Currently running stock 4.0 5 speed combo on stock dana 30/44 combo with 3:73 gears. Our last trip to Flat n Nasty park down south east Mo. we ran on 37” MTR’s wrapped around some nice alloys (no I don’t know who’s, at the time they were borrowed but soon to be mine and the wife and I like the look!)

Kevin L. Marchant


I hope to drop my lift down to a 2.5 and go LCG style with highline and cut rear fenders. I can do this because me and my cuz and some friends build jeep parts; one off’s custom stuff. So I don’t have to shell big bucks and the jeep is all mine so I Fab on the side, teach Design software full time (I am a geek, and a outdoor nut) Our favorite park other than Co. is Disney Ok. It has everything from big obstacles, to tight V-notchs (my personal Fav) some mud, or no mud, (most of the time you have a choice) and Hogan’s camping is pretty sweet. He has got a shop that if you can do it, you can use to fix your carnage.

Kevin L. Marchant


Oh, did I mention my axles are wide open I love hearing “When did you lock that thing up?! … I didn’t… O, Sweet!” Makes me smile. If I could do it over again, I’d of stayed LCG rather than running the Short arm kit with long travel shocks. I want to go 2.5” with a Flat belly, Rough Country. I really like there shocks, and the progressive springs; Outboard the shocks and tons of travel, and provide a very stable feel.

Kevin L. Marchant


A lot of the guys/gals I run with run a wide range of setups and like the LCG movement, as it just makes sense. Mostly I run with a ornery group of pals (best part of wheeling IMO, good peeps all around) most of the time, but we all met through the Kansas City Jeep Club. It’s had its ups and downs but it is on the mend now. I plan on joining again in January. I served as VP, Safety and on the board in the past, and look to be a member again as its restructured now. www.kcjeepclub.org check us/them out! Good peeps for the gross majority, and a good family orientated group as well. Been wheeling with them for about 6 years.

Kevin L. Marchant


I grew up playing in the mud with my sisters Cj7 (she’s got a JK now) To many stories to pick just one. Once I ended up on my side (on flat ground, completely sober) to backed over a Lincoln limo (no body panel or bumper touched it, all tire!) to lifting and off-road before I owned it 7 days.

Hello everyone.. If I could get your attention for a moment, I would really appreciate it. There are just a few things I would like to share with you that you may find of interest or may pertain to you.

First: As I am sure you have noticed by now, we are having featured Jeeper Bios, both male and female Jeepers. Initially I had only intended on posting bios on Wednesday and Friday’s but the response has been great (I hope it continues!!!) so I have been posting them daily in an effort to get caught up. We will be continuing this campaign as long as there is an interest so if you would like to be featured, please let us know by shooting us off a private message on Facebook.

Secondly: There are so many great Jeep off roading clubs and organizations and I sincerely would love to feature them all, as well as Jeep events. But seriously, I cannot keep up with all of it. So, in an effort to make sure those of you who would like to be featured are, whether it be a club you belong to, a founder of, or a upcoming Jeep Event you would like a shout out given to I need to request a favor from you. If you want your Jeep Off Roading Club, Organization, or event featured, please send me all the details of such. Please, Do not just make it “So N So is having an off roading event on such and such date and location” Please give us details, who has organized it, etc.

When sending information about a Club, make sure to include a background about it. People like to know the origins of clubs they are considering joining as well as what they stand for, community involvement, events, etc. Make sure to include contact information.

And in closing, I am sorry, but there is no way possible for us to post about club meetings. There are far too many and no way for us to feasibly handle the volume.

Third and lastly: I would love to thank all of you who have connected us with so many other great Jeep Enthusiasts both on our friends page and our fanpage! We really appreciate it!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!! We hope that you find us a value in your Jeep Off roading and continue to share us with your fellow Jeep friends and family! Thank you again!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, for bearing with me though this update, I would like to leave you with this great little clip that was share with us from the Nova Scotia Jeep Club.
