    Re: Plagued with Drive Shaft Issues

    There are some folks out there (probably several on this forum) that can eyeball such things, but I would not trust myself to drill a straight hole in the end of a shaft freehand. Especially a shaft...

    Re: Swank's 1992 Range Rover Classic

    Very cool. One day I'd like to attempt this as well. Please take lots of pictures.

    Re: Emergency diy snow chains

    I like the rope idea. Wish I would have known about it a few years ago. Got stuck halfway in my driveway when the gutter was full of snow and ice after a storm. Used the emergency chains from my...

    I've used these in the past on a 2wd camper... the V bar type. I may still have them somewhere. They're good for getting out of a...

    Re: Jeep 1 - Deer 0

    Maybe hitting a deer or even a moose isn't so bad after all... relatively speaking:

    Ages ago I saw a video of an early version of this test. The moose dummy then looked more like a piece of telephone pole wrapped...
  7. Re: Cheap, easy, and quick DIY way to organize your toolbox and w

    That's pretty dope. Probably a bit of a Maslow's hammer scenario... when there's a pile of flat bar and a chop saw right there... why not. Anyone with some 1/8" hardboard and a table saw could...

    Re: Permanently installed air lines?

    I am currently running a setup like this. I have an ARB twin compressor plumbed to a quick connect fitting in each wheel well via half inch rubber air line. I then have 4x 3ft sections of air hose...

    Re: Jeep 1 - Deer 0

    Glad to hear you made it out of that encounter relatively unscathed.

    I was returning to Denver last weekend, EB on I-70 at about 8pm, there was a large bull moose standing in the middle of the...

    Re: Words fail me!

    It's for water crossings. The water passes right through the wheels so it wont push you sideways. Plus the lack of flotation will keep you firmly planted on the bottom.

    Re: 58 Willys Wagon

    Very cool jeep. I'm really digging the plaid interior, but I bet that's a bit of a polarizing design choice by the previous owner.

    Do the wagons run the spicer 18 transfercase? Maybe once you...

    Re: Mod For The Day

    I spent a little time on my Xterra recently. New tires (Cooper ST Maxx), new shocks (Bilstein 4600, more or less OEM), and a set of White Knuckle rock sliders. Pretty basic stuff, but it could also...

    Re: Custom hitch mounted vice

    That's pretty cool. I like how you also made a stand, so the vice can be used on the truck or away from it.

    The bolts in the corner to take up the slop are a nice touch as well.

    Re: Kelly Flats Sunday 052619

    For a little bit of thread damage I like to make a thread chaser. Just grind a flute into an extra bolt.

    The photos in this thread show what I'm trying to describe.

    Re: Big Van in Littleton

    I like the hot tub idea. A few thousand pounds of sloshing water would make things interesting.

    Right now most of the seats are out of it, but I haven't quite gutted it. I built a bracket that...

    Re: Big Van in Littleton

    I'm guessing it's between 7k and 8klbs. I've been meaning to weigh it. Some folks with fully built-out sportsmobiles claim to be over 10klbs. I suppose if it gets really stuck all I'd ask for is a...

    Thanks, everyone. Its a big truck, so I am interested in taking it on trails where it will fit. The paint is not in great shape already and there is a decent dent on the passenger side behind the...
