I havent really been participating much lately and been lurking alot, so, after being prompted, I figured I would jump back into the monkey with a write-up on my propaned heep... <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com1) deisel & gas are "refined" hydrocarbons.. Meaning, you will always have a bottleneck at the refinery, and will always be dependant on distribution from the network for fuel.. The farther away from the refinery you are (if it can even operate) the less or non-existant availability of the product you may or not have access to.. Propane (along with natty gas) is not a "refined" hydrocarbon and can be gotten straight outta da tap (drilled wells) in any state that I care to reside/hide from the zombies in.. Worst case scenario.. </SPAN> 2) I had no qualms with a 4cyl (as opposed to the I6) as, I dont plan on doing any extreme rock climbing/push my jeep to breaking point.. Nor do I expect it to be a daily 30 mile interstate commuter. The 4cyl (even on propane with power loss) in 4 low has PLENTY of power to get you up and down mountains and around many obstacles (as I recently took it to colorado on a shakedown run, alongside an 07' Jeep running 38" tires and an 8" lift).. IF I ever need to replace the 4cyl, I would go with a 350 SBC for ease of parts and efficiency. 3) I currently reside in an RV, and so, my primary fuel source is propane.. (have my genny converted to tri-fuel as well – it can run on gasoline, propane, or natty gas. Thanks to gator for hooking me up and doing the conversion) My truck is diesel (and I can haul 170gals in my truck, to get me to my BOL), so why have the need for 3 different fuel types when running from the zombies? I also have a 250gal mobile tank (tank is on wheels) which can be pulled behind the jeep/truck/rv.. I’ve already got a very informative thread that I did on a jeep forum, here’s a link http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/95-yj-propane-conversion-1195065/ Prior to adding the new tires and bumpers, I was getting 100-130 miles per 8 fluid gallons of propane.. After adding new tires and bumpers, I get about 70-100 miles per tank. My primary tanks are DOT approved 10gal (they only fill to 8 for gas expansion) forklift tanks. But I have all the adapters to be capable of utilizing BBQ pit bottles and coleman 1lb stove bottles.. Which I keep 2 in my jeep as reserves for emergency. Currently the jeep is setup to run with the computer and OE distributor, but I have parts on hand to swap it over to computerless operations if necessary. I know this goes against “conventional” prepper wisdom in being self-sufficient, stationary, and already setup prior to TSHTF, but currently, I cannot afford to do so, and so have made preps to be capable of being mobile during and afterwards so that I may round up family (600m away from me) and reach my BOL. My next ATV acquisition will be a horse, as my ultimate BOV.. lol Questions? Recommendations? Heckles? Below are a couple of pics before fixing (32" tires, 1-1/2" shackle lift), after (32" tires, 1" body lift, 1" shackle lift), and during trip (fully loaded with BOB's/water/guns/kids). Eventually I plan on painting the jeep something a little more "suttle" than fire engine red.. olive drab or tan, krylon, ofcoarse.. lol Enjoy..
