    Re: I bought a TJ

    I've heard that Scouts and other International Harvester trucks have very little or no caster in the factory designed steering, and a quick search suggests some folks with those trucks have had...

    Re: I bought a TJ

    Follow up question: What is your towing vehicle, and what is the distance from the ball to the rear axle? From a dead stop, because the ball is behind the rear axle it will initially move a little...

    Re: I bought a TJ

    It seems to be working well for me but I haven't made any real trips yet as I am in the middle of rebuilding the interior of the van. I haven't experienced the issue you describe in any of my...

    Re: I bought a TJ

    I was driving the TJ yesterday and I heard a new sound... a speed-dependent noise at a frequency higher than the wheel speed so I figured I would inspect the driveshafts. Turns out the rear axle...

    Re: GMRS call sign announcement rules.

    Here's another example of the kind of caliber of a-hole one has to aspire to in order to get fined by the FCC:

    Re: GMRS call sign announcement rules.

    One of the more egregious examples of an individual operator attracting the attention of the FCC is that of Kevin Bondy.

  7. Re: Effective on April 19, 2022, GMRS license price has dropped

    The reason GMRS mobiles do not have channels 8-14 is because the way the FCC's GMRS rules are written. I don't think its a particularly direct statement if I remember correctly, but effectively...

    Re: GMRS call sign announcement rules.

    That's a great analogy.

    I just hope no one out there feels too intimidated about the rules to give GMRS a try. Anyone who makes a minimal effort and plays nice should be fine and there is some...

    Re: GMRS call sign announcement rules.

    They are all shared channels pretty much now, except for the GMRS repeater input frequencies. That wasn't the case back before the 2017 (I think) rule change but the period with all those GMRS/FRS...

    Re: GMRS call sign announcement rules.

    What complicates GMRS as opposed to amateur radio is that the frequencies are shared with the FRS "licence by rule" service which has no requirement for station ID. You can't really tell if the...
  11. Re: Roof Top Tents aren't all they're cracked up to be

    I bet if someone makes one of these where you can leave all your bedding inside and just flip it out and use it, that would sell some units. Maybe insulate the under-side of the cot you you don't...
  12. Re: Roof Top Tents aren't all they're cracked up to be

    Back when I lived in the northeast I found that a hammock was a handy way to avoid sleeping on a rock or root in the dense woods of the Adirondacks, Green Mountains, and White Mountains. The main...

    Now this is more like it. Toyota Previa body on a 32 foot motor home frame. It's so absurd it makes me smile.

    Re: Communications -what do you use?

    I was poking around the FCC submissions for that radio this morning. Looks like it only puts out 738mW on channels 1-7, and 15-22 (legal limit 2W), and 148 on 8-14 (legal limit 500mW). Yet, all of...

    I forgot to mention, there was a video Jim shared a while back about dealing with stubborn exhaust manifold bolts. My bolts weren't all that bad, but that was helpful on a few. Working them in and...

    It was an SKP from rockauto. Nothing fancy. I believe the part number was SK674196.

    I have also been playing with UHF antennas. It seems like there more compromises on a Jeep with a soft top than on other vehicles. I prefer to get the antenna up above the roof so the vehicle and...

    This is a couple weeks old, but I finally fixed my exhaust leak by replacing my manifold. It looks like someone else pulled it out and tried to weld it at some point. I was considering trying that,...

    Re: Communications -what do you use?

    I prefer the UV-82's over the UV-5R's. No complaints about the 5R. The guts are probably darn near the same but the UV-82 is a little bigger and the keys are spaced apart a bit more which works...
