    Cheaper 270 Degree Awnings: ARQ4WD & Overland Pros

    I am looking for a 270 deg awning that is compatible with a Front Runner full size roof rack that has legs and a sturdy zip closed cover. There are so many awnings that I am having difficulty making a decision. I realize that this is a post topic discussing inexpensive awnings but I am hoping...

    Legal vs illegal radios

    I had a HAM radio for a bit before my license and only used it to listen. As long as I was not transmitting I was not doing anything illegal. Had both hand held and hardwired into the vehicle. Just listening is not an illegal action. I am now licensed.

    Need help M416 aftermarket wheel size

    Be a good idea to get wheels to match your tow vehicle but you may have to also get different drums. If they stick out a bit have other fenders made, simple sheet metal bending shouldn't be a huge issue. I sold my M416 and have scrubbed my pics so I cannot show you what I had.

    Just got myself an Oztent but have a question

    could be how it folded when last put away. I have not noticed such a thing on mine. I have had mine (OZ3) for a few years with no adverse issues. Put it up and let it breath for a bit, in the sun if possible to allow everything to soften. Watch a few vids on youtube about them and it may...

    Is it legal to mount a small 5 lb propane tank horizontally on one's roof rack?

    I have two propane tanks, one is a pancake tank that is mounted with the valve on top secured to my roof rack. Never had issues with it except for the occasional branch bouncing off it but I try not to hit things. If my HAM antenna clears then the tank will clear. The other tank is also 11 pound...

    Can we talk coffee brewing?

    Recently visited Colombia and toured a coffee plantation. Lots goes into getting coffee to us and now I have a greater appreciation of why coffee costs what it does. Standing on a slope picking just the right beans is not an easy task. I do like Colombian coffee, it is the second best coffee in...

    Rice cooker

    Just got a mini (12V) rice cooker for my trail adventures. Powered it up in the kitchen to see how it worked. Powered it off my Jackery 250 (used 15% power for a serving of rice) quite acceptable for addition to a trail meal. Takes about 25 min for a rice cook. Rice will cook while I drive and...

    Stainless Steel Brake Lines -- Yay or Nay

    I have had a lot of vehicles and most had metal tube lines, easy and rather inexpensive to replace. Some vehicles are stock with braided metal covered lines that resemble SS lines but I did not keep the vehicle long enough to gage the importance between the two types. I understand there may be...

    Molle panels for LR3

    Thanks for the response. Just what I was looking for. It appears from the video that the cover for the small cargo hold must be left off after installation, correct? Does equipment on the panel or the panel itself interfere with radio reception as the radio antenna is in/on the window?

    AUS Water Jerry Cans

    Most of my 20 liter Scepter water cans will leak if transported on their sides. I carried them on my roof rack on their sides to avoid much of the wind resistance and they leaked. I purchaced the 2 1/2 gallon (10 L) size to avoid this issue. They ride just fine in the carriers I fabricated...

Road trip coming up soon, prefer to get my kit filled out long before the last min. Thanks for...
