Rebuildable, very well-constructed, UL, OSHA, and NFPA approved for fire proximity use. I find them to be very comfortable, even if you're just sitting on your couch WATCHING...

    Hey Moderators... Rules??

    And the input from some longtime members is: we want this ******** to stop. If this platform is going to turn into an ad space for anybody new to the group to try and pimp an overland rig for way out of line money, that needs to stop right now. If the "managers" don't care to hear that, perhaps they...
