    Nitto Ridge Grappler vs Toyo RT Trail

    I'm leaning towards the Toyos right now due the reviews, weight (255/80r17@52lbs) and being made in the USA. The Nittos are defintely in the running still and their weight come in at an acceptable 55lbs for the same size +they're a great looking tire! I guess it will come down to availability...

    Nitto Ridge Grappler vs Toyo RT Trail

    Funny I have'nt read anything about weak sidewalls except in the 2 ply sidewall. The lt tires are 3ply. Fast wearing doesn´t concern me much because I'll be replacing them due to age before getting close to 45,000 miles.

    expedition VW beetle

    I´m sad to say that my over 50 years love affair with bugs/bajas/things has come to an end. My first car at 16 was a 1967 bug (1500cc,1st year 12v) and being a surfer in southern California it was only natural to explore Baja wich led to a series of bajas and such. I've owned a 63,65 (baja)...

    Need to find solar parts in Baja!!!

    You might want to talk to these guys? If they don´t deal with 12v systems they´ll probably know who does.

    Hilary and California Sur

    Campo Rene, Abreojos,La Bocana and Asucion got torn up badly (roads,homes, coop,y mucho mas). A couple of washouts on highway 5 on the way to Gonzaga. The road out to Bahia de los Angeles wash out again. Santa Rosalia took a hard hit. That's all I have heard about so far.

    Yetti's 19 ZR2 ( Zelda)

    I highly recomend the sy-clone pre filter. I've had mine a couple of years now and have never had to blow out the filter out as I did before with the ram air. They are expensive but well worth the dough. I too do alot of dusty roads (silt beds).

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    The mount did not come with the starlink but it is a starlink product. I got it on amazon for 90 bucks. It's called a roof/pivot mount. I'm just finishing up my utbdr trip and it has been fantastic! Unfortunately I didn't use it much in forests as most of the trails above 9000 ft were closed due...

    Introducing the “NEW” Alu-Cab Canopy Camper

    I've had zero issues with connectivity but I have only used it in remote Baja and at home with wide open skies. I've read that it can be hard to connect in tall forests,you need a clearing.I'll know more about that soon as I´m going to do the UTBDR this month.

    Mine still looks good after 4+ years (sans the pin striping;)) but the black gussets have lost alot of paint. Mine lives indoors when not on the road. Never been waxed.

    DTW does the wind or getting in and out of your wedge camper cause any issues such as losing signal due to where it´s mounted?

    Our Solar System: 300W of solar - Yeti 1500x

    Nice setup DTW! I did the same kinda of upgrades with my system. I had /have a Jackery 1000 with 2 100w folding panels. It worked well until I upgraded my fridge to a Dometic 75l dz and got the Starlink. When I run the freezer full time and am using the Starlink it chews up the power real fast...
