George has a bunch of good write-ups I have followed. The Supercharger, Subtank, Snorkle and he sells some cool LED lights. He is also the one who makes the ECU for the subtank.

Click the back to home page link to see the other write-ups he has
I know who George is I just have a life that doesn't involve IH8MUD!

Updated 6/14/2008

These things have been done:
• 4.88 gears (done. Precision gears)
• Fix front of sliders so they don't hit my new tires
(sliced at both ends and welded up courtesy of Mr. Green Machine)
• Lift of some sort: need more than I have now
(now rocking the Slee 4" lift)
• 315 tires (Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ Radials)
• Winch (used Warn M12000)
• New Redline synthetic gear oil in diffs and transfer case (not on original list)
• Head gasket service done by Powderpig (not on original list)
• buy and install synthetic winch rope (not on original list)
• install Slee electrical harness
• install Center Diff Lock switch
• install MAF upgrade (not on original list)
• install front and rear Slee adjustable panhard rods (praise be to Oleg for slicing the front off the front lower bracket to reweld the nut on the back)
• lube rear driveshaft ujoints
• front end aligned (Sat. 6/14!)

This might get done. If not, no big deal:
• install John Deere low beam lights (already own)
• install new speakers for stereo (already own: Infinitys)
• install rear overhead light (already own)

These just ain't gonna happen:
• Sub tank (someday)
• Drawers
• Fridge

If you haven't done this mod, you might look at doing it before you go
Yeah, I'll be screwed if we cross anything higher than bumper high (my intake is roughly hip high). Haven't got a snorkel, running stock diff breathers and stock ECU kick panel location. How deep are the water crossings for real? I remember seeing a photo in one of the Trails write-ups, didn't seem all that deep. Is the run-off extra high this year? I could probably hobble something together again for the diffs, but got no time to raise the ECU or anything.

Hmm that site has nothing to do with Mud. I actually found it before Mud years ago.

Are you a Mud hater Kevin?

Sorta....There is a lot of really good folks on mud but there are enough armchair wheelers and armchair mechanics to make even the best tech posted up into a circus. I rarely go anywhere but the TLCA forum, the club forums and the hard core tech sections....just not enough time to snoop through the BS most of the time.

Good luck and have fun!
