Welcome

Welcome to my new Blog. I will be writing about trips and adventures that I have taken. Gear that I have. Build of my Jeep. Things that I have bought that I wish I did differently. My YouTube channel have some great install videos, “how To” videos, and trips & trail videos. https://www.youtube.com/expeditionteamoverland

Steering Stabilizer Replacement

When I had American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) install their 3.5” suspension, it included an upgraded steering stabilizer.  After 19,500 miles on the odometer the steering felt soft, but I didn’t notice any fluid leak, so I couldn’t tell if it was broken.

AEV Lift Install

The day has come, droping off my Jeep at American Expedition Vehicles (AEV).  On my 2013 Jeep I installed myself, with help from friends two AEV lifts, the 2.5” and 3.5” lifts.  Why did I have AEV install the lift on my new jeep?  Time! I was working a busy schedule with not alot ofContinue reading “AEV Lift Install”
