    What roof rack lights do you run?

    I've got a 2005 Xterra with a Gobi Stealth rack. I'm leaning towards buying (4) PIAA 510 ATP. They are 4" halogen which I prefer the light of over LED. What do you guys think? I'll be using them for trails in Northern CA and AZ. No real high speed driving, I'm wanting more of a spread. Thanks...

    2007 F250 Diesel 4x4 crew cab, 2006 F550 4x4 crew cab diesel, 2004 Nissan Titan 4X4

    I thought I'd post all three of these together as I need to sell two of these and I can't decide which to keep. Can you tell I'm addicted to cool trucks:smiley_drive: I'll go with the remaining after the others sell. I am pricing well below book for a quick sale, though I'm in no real rush to...

    I need someone to help me build my trailer, will pay well.

    I need someone to help me build a job trailer from scratch, I'm a general contractor, and well versed in metal fabrication. What I'm lacking is time and energy. I just happen to have a remodel project going with a great 3 car garage thats empty. I've got about all the equipment that's needed...

    iphone4 for navigation

    Just returned from my trip, verdict.....iphone GPS not so hot without cell assistance! It did work without any cell reception, and was accurate for the first leg of my trip, but about an hour after I lost cell reception in the foothills around Iowa hill in the Tahoe National Forest, the GPS...

    iphone4 for navigation

    I was looking for info here on what the latest and greatest gps combo was, and feeling guilty about the money I was sure to drop on a good setup.... After a few threads and some googling, I picked up my iphone on the bedside table, curious about it's potential, and I downloaded this: "...

    CCW Pistol Recommendations

    Just bought the Bersa .380 myself. Waiting the 10 day wait for pickup, I'll post a review afterwards. I am very happy with the purchase, I probably spent at least 50 hours researching the thing before purchase. I also ordered 500 rounds of UMC 95 grn, and 60 of the Cor bon dxp.and a aFobus...

    Democratic Republic of Congo: Lubumbashi to Kinshasa

    That's an interesting approach, I hope we can share ideas like this without it being seen as criticism to F&J. I'm also curious if this would have worked. I have many times been stuck trying to back up hills in RWD truck which would probably roughly equate to the weight distribution of a loaded...

    USMC Utility Trailer / Ideal for Off Road Build

    "I'll get some more photos of it on Saturday morning and post them. My research indicates that these were used for hauling generators, compressors etc. Your idea of the job box is exactly what I was thinking, a water tight hauler.".....................:coffee:

    Another trailer idea

    What are you driving? If you have a full size (or 7/8 size ;), I'd go for it if the box is in good shape. I priced a new utility bed out like that a few years ago and IIRC it was around $7k. I'm on a lifetime lookout for an aluminum body from a compact truck to make a trailer out of. My...

    USMC Utility Trailer / Ideal for Off Road Build

    I'm interested, strange how small it is.... though I have Knaack job box that would fit the deck and make a nice watertight gear hauler. Any idea what the date of manufacture, tare weight, payload etc? Also, could you snap some pics of the axle and springs. Thanks

    Would you make this trade?

    Seems like you've made up your mind for now to keep the Dodge, but I'll throw in my .02 anyway. I had an 07 Ram Quad Cab 2500 CTD 4x4 longbed, and sold it and bought an 09 Tacoma Acess cab 4x4. My thoughts... Almost anytime you swap vehicles you lose money/time/energy. I miss the space...

    Democratic Republic of Congo: Lubumbashi to Kinshasa

    This went on for kilometers on end. Spiders were atually building a web on the inside of our windscreen. And then we tipped over again. Well I have a solution to the tipping over issue, just run 40" tires on the trench side and stockers on the high side... :smiley_drive:

    My Camping Trailer Project

    I think it's awesome Dirtco. Nice fab skills and it definitely has the cool factor of being your first Toyota frame and matching the clearance of your 4 Runner (with a killer departure angle to boot!. Also the "step" of the frame coinciding with steps up to the tent makes sense. Don't listen...

    Thailand Overland..well sort of

    I'm in Thailand for a month, just arrived in Chiangmai. I'd like to do a couple of weeks overland in the mountains, I usually have a strong aversion to tour led type trips but I have no idea about the area, and no vehicle capable here so I'm looking into a couple of offroad tour outfits. Anyone...

    My BIG *** tent

    Not really suitable for easy setup, takes me and one other an hour to setup. I've done it by myself once, wont again. Anyway her it is: It's really strong and light for it's size. I've had 6 people on the roof at the same time. Our military guys will be familier with it. Kye
