    Tent replacement

    We have a TuffStuff Alpha 2 for three years now and are happy with it. And it is not as overpriced like an iKamper. It also came with an annex room and the awning that you see in the picture as a Black Friday deal.

    Rhino Rack issues?

    Hmmm, I have the Bare Bones system on my Jeep, because the top (and gutters) are just fiberglass. Didn't that fit for you roof as well? These clamps look sketchy and I cannot imagine that they hold well with weight on the bars. I agree with your assessment. Can your bars be mounted on the Bare...

    After 8 years in a full size, moving back to a mid-size - Recommendations?

    You need the "max tow" package that has towing up to 7700lbs (100lbs less than my F150 had).

    Land Rover ideas for Jeeps

    I am driving a Jeep (my third FWIW) and like these ideas as well. Isn't the goal of overlanding to "go places" (to quote that other brand ;-)), and therefore any idea that makes that possible is a good one?

    Newbie moving to the USA

    I came to the US 7.5 years ago (from Germany) and couldn't even bring my Harley-Davidson with me. There is a difference if you come as a visitor (< 1 year) or for longer. If you want to stay longer your vehicle has to be brought up to DOT/EPA standards in advance, and that takes time - even if...

    backpack vs rucksack

    @Kiwi-Yank that's funny - in German we just have one word for it: Rucksack. That makes me think now about the male population...

    Starting my overland build with my 07 JKU

    Warrior Products has a roof rack that follows your top's line. You might want to check out their Renegade rack. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk

    Hey Rich, yeah, that might be the beauty of being a travel soccer dad with games in Berryville and Front Royal :-) I am living in Loudoun county, though (up north, 5 minutes away from MD/Point of Rocks). Are you aware of Jeep/Overland meetups in our neck of the woods? Where do you want to go...

    Glad that you have found a good deal for the running board issue - just don't spend too much...

    Glad that you have found a good deal for the running board issue - just don't spend too much, because you will miss that money for the Jeep you will show up with next year ;-) We should plan the next meeting in advance to set up a nice camp like the one in the photo below ... [IMG]

    Google Nexus 5 phone now available

    That is really a bummer. I do have a Galaxy Nexus and it still goes strong (and more "buttery" than my N7 BTW).

    Really.............Independent Suspension...******?

    That is exactly the point - people don't want to change, but they will.

    Really.............Independent Suspension...******?

    That is exactly what I thought when the TJ was introduced. We will get over it and buy what is available ... I do have a JKU now and don't mind the coil springs at all ... (But still love to see square headlights on YJs like my old one ;-))

    Tire decision block!

    I have the Cooper STT on my Jeep (in a different size, 14k miles so far) and they work pretty well on road, off road, in rain. I haven't used them in snow, but I have read that this come soon to us here in the Northern hemisphere. They have a noticeable humming on the road and are heavy (load...
