We will be have several different types of project vehicles ranging from
extreme four wheeling projects to mild trail rigs.
Bryan Archambeault's Project YJ is the Jeep his parents never wanted him
to have. It is impractical, but a load of fun. Built for Sierra rocks
were it sees repeated abuse.
Project Invasion is a 1975 Jeep J-10 pickup that is being built to
accomplish two goals. During the week, the truck will be a work truck
to drive around town. During the weekends, the truck needs to be ready
to hit the high mountain passes for camping and exploration.
The major goal for this project is to get the truck ready for the
Ouray 2002 Full Size Jeep Invasion, so the project is named after the event.
Don't get me wrong, the XJ is a great off road vehicle that can
do amazing things with minor lift and tire upgrades, but when it
comes to hard core wheeling they are passed over for a myriad
of reasons. But despite all the pitfalls, for some reason I felt I
had something to prove when I decided to go hard core with an XJ.
Project Low Buck, a '79 J20
"The body on the truck was as bad as I had imagined, but it did come from the factory with the right hardware. The front axle is an 8 lug Dana 44 with 3/4 ton brakes, the rear is a full floating Dana 60, the motor is an AMC 360, the transmission is a wide ratio T-18 and the transfercase is a Dana 20."
