  1. Re: 4runner 4gen build / rear axle conversion to front???

    put a locker in the rear and keep the IFS.

    I have a SAS'd Explorer that I've used for car camping (or "overlanding" as the new buzz word). It's awesome on the trails but sorta sucks on the...

    Re: Thoughts of using high weight engine oil

    15w oil will flow very slowly when cold.

    I know someone who blew up their D30 pinion with 4.88s and too much skinny pedal on 35s.

    Re: need welder, fabricator

    That I-beam is going to collect mud like no one's business: top and bottom.

    Have you priced out material yet? Do that and then give this guy a call:

    Re: RimRocker to Moab

    Wow. You guys took your time. When I did it, we left Montrose at noon, camped near Buckeye Lake and then we're in Moab at noon the next day.

  12. Re: 2017 Total Eclipse - Aug 21 - anyone going?

    I'm planning on going. Going to do the COBDR up to the border and then decide what to do. Staying away from populated areas sounds like the best plan. Wyoming could turn into a complete...

    Re: Top Gear America

    Let's see, their first opportunity to drive (the Baja bugs) 2 of the 3 are complaining and saying how they'd rather fly.

    It's not looking good.

    I actually liked the old US Top Gear after they...

    Re: Looking for a Family SUV

    $5000 range with a 3rd row and not with 200,000+ miles. I doubt you'll find a Toyota or Honda with those limitations.

    Expedition or Suburban would satisfy that though.

    before I started playing in the dirt, I spent several years playing in parking lots and road courses driving FWD cars faster than most people dared. FWD cars are known to understeer more than RWD...

    Re: New Tires on Rear

    While moving forward, if the front has better traction than the rear, the rear may try to pass the front.

    You've experienced it. When going around a corner in the snow- FWD you pull the hand...

    Re: Trail Damage now a membership site?

    while I wasn't 4wheeling in the 80s, I know people that did. They'd show up at a trailhead with their big 31" tires to a trail, run it, or as far as they could and turned if they couldn't.

    Re: Tire Pressure

    The tire guy is an idiot.

    Air down offroad. I've seen stuck vehicles free themselves just by airing down.
  20. Re: Rock Creek - fallen trees on trail, ruled on clearing?

    I had a regular bow saw. The teeth looked aggressive but it took a ton of work to cut through something. Brad used it.

    The Katana Boy is like a hot knife through butter. Massive difference.
  21. Re: Rock Creek - fallen trees on trail, ruled on clearing?

    The Katana Boy bow saw is another good tool. Doesn't need gas or bar oil and doesn't need to be tuned for the elevation (the user might though). Takes up next to no space and doesn't leak.
