Sorta new to the area.

Post  Haficon on 4/3/2014, 9:28 pm

Well a quick intorduction of myself and my Jeep :
Transferred up here January 02 2013
Male 29 years old originally from Alabama.
Legal wheeling and camping.
Job (what brings me to Cape Cod): Coast Guard
Married, have a 10 year old son
2012 JKU Deep Cherry Red “HAFICON”
4.88's, Front and Rear ARB, TnT Truss system, Auto transmission.
Rugged Ridge:
Front stubby XHD
8500lb Winch
Pre Runner Guard
Side RRC Armor
Rear XHD Bumper
XHD Tire carrier
M.O.R.E Off-road skid plates
Custom On Board Air set up, Dual 2 gallon tanks.
Cobra 29 LTD Classic
Wheel/Tire combo 315/70/17 Goodyear Duratrac’s on MB wheels
AEV 2.5 suspension lift
M.O.R.E. 1” Body lift
I bed lined the tub.
Custom overhead console with CB mount, Air PSI gauge and switches.

Soon to be modification:
Rear winch
New exhaust (to accommodate rear winch)
Snorkel most likely Rugged Ridge modular
Dual Battery system.
Custom made rack.
Lighting plan is LED light bar depending on what changes we make to the rack.

So the majority of trail ride I have been on,
Talladega Alabama has some nice areas.
Several places in Tn.
Shoe Creek back in Va.
Lots of Class IV roads over in N.H.

So I am kind of a Jack of all trades master of none, I love designing and building stuff. Been on a few trail rides have moderate trail experience, light to moderate on rocks. I am not scared to drive through mud to get somewhere But I am not gonna go out in a mud hole just to sling some earth and tare crap up. I was in an organized group back in VA called Hampton Roads Jeep Club very nice group really family friendly. I am just looking to fall in with another group as I will be here at least another 2 years. I have my Jeep set up decent IMO, not scared of a scratch I have some really cool Pin Stripes so far. I do all my modification myself, lift, bumper installs, suspension work, some limited metal fabrication due to restriction on base.

I really hope to meet some people looks like I am going to be around for a while. I will post some pictures as soon as I pass my 7 day period.

Welcome! This a very family friendly club so your family would be welcomed on any of the group runs

JK sounds awesome, I think you can post pictures immediately if you host the pics on photobucket.

I'm very interested in seeing your designs for a rear winch, I've seen a couple guys with LJ's do it and even if it's only a 5k winch they're still pretty functional to get out of tight situations

Jack of all trades definitely describes most of the guys in this club, I'm sure you'll fit in just fine haha

What's the story behind the name, btw?

Oh, and the matte black doors? Was that for aesthetics or did you get full doors that didn't match and did the black? (I ask because I'm considering doing the latter)

Jeep came with 1/2 doors and someone stole the doors them with the Jeep only being 2 months old so I bought these used full doors. Intention was to paint them to match but think I am just going to Vinyl Wrap them and leave it the way it is.

Found it like this siting on the lot with only 20 miles, got such a good deal I could not resist even though I was not shopping for a vehicle.

Story behind the name, was on a Jeep ride and pretty much stock 3.73 and rear LSD one factory tires  was doing everything a guy on a built Rubicon was doing (he could not drive) well he got pissed because his new Rubicon with 4" of lift and 35's was getting shown up by a stock JKU so they started calling me Half A Con because I was in my Jeep for half the cost of his Rubicon name just sounds cool to me and it stuck. I changed it to Haficon and had a decal made in mockery of his Rubicon.

Aw, man. Sucks about the doors. Hopefully insurance covered it.

We have 1/2 doors as well, and my wife makes me keep the stupid torx bolts on as a theft deterrent.

I'm hoping to grab a set of full doors for the front at some point, but at this point, something that expensive is pretty far down on the priority list. Some day.

welcome, I like the story behind the name. I've been on a few trips with guys like that (not here but back when i lived in Tucson) and my stocker zj was keeping up with their built jeeps (not that Im a pro but I don't drive like an idiot usually haha). But I know how you feel about those pin stripes. JKU looks awesome (I seriously feel like I've seen yours before either on a different site or possibly around the area). Welcome, we have an overwhelmingly great group with all builds of rigs and all different experiences. Keep us updated on the rig, you have some awesome mods.

Yeah I've been following your thread on Jeepforum for the TJ.  I just posted in there about rebuilding my currie arms with Johnny Joints.  That's awesome it has a d44, my '01 sahara came with the 35...

Edit: Just checked Jeepforum again and saw you posted a picture of a 35...bummer. Sounds like a good candidate for a new rear end haha
