    @Rube2K6 thanks. It is interesting that the are two parts numbers I was given, RS999120 and RS999113. I guess I need to pull mine off and take some measurements. This is a Chaser with what I think is Gen 1 TASS.

    Does anyone have the part # for the Rancho adjustable shocks that can be fitted to a Chaser?

    You got a very nice Jeep and set up! I didn’t care for the overall length of the 3 or 4 so tried this. I know… it’s a Land Cruiser. But you can dream.

    Little trip out west along the Minnesota River Scenic Byway.

    Chaser #14. New adventures

    Bronsons’ wheel adapter/spacer to match the 4.5x5 brake drum to the 5x150 OEM Toyota wheels. Tire size is 265/70 R18 at the moment and were previously on the 100. Spacer is 2.5” thick to compensate for the drastic difference between the dished Mickey Thompsons to the +60 offset on the Toyota...

    2006 UZJ100 build - bit at a time

    Anyone else a “rigs and coffee” sort of guy? The local REI hosts Rigs and Coffee the 2nd Saturday each month. I stopped by to help a friend set up his ARB awning with awning room for the first time.

    "Campers" that you can't sleep in

    1. Flat floor tent with what can be a great mattress 2. No need to burden the tow vehicle with so much weight on the roof or otherwise packed into the vehicle, especially if the tow vehicle is also a daily driver 3. Can pack during the week to just hook up and go. 4. Ability to claim a...

    Chaser #14. New adventures

    Spent some long overdue time cleaning up and updating the electrical in the tongue box. The previous set up was 100% functional but did not allow for expansion or a way to isolate the battery from the system if need be. All loads were directly connected to the battery with inline fuses and...

    Ordered a set of hub centric adapters from Bronsons @ www.customwheeladapters.com For reference, my trailer is set up with 5 on 4.5 5 lug hubs with 12 - 20 lugs. The adapter will go 5x4.5 to 5x150 and 2.5" thick to match the 60mm offset Sequoia wheels. Center bore is 74MM internal to 110MM...

    M100/M416 width opinions wanted

    FWIW, I’d focus more on length than width (middle school jokes, aside) as the stock m100/416 is very sensitive to loading and balance. Clrussell has an extended tongue and it looks equal in length to NaterXJ6 Chaser trailer (I have a Chaser as well). I’ve had both; a 1966 M416 and a 2006...

    @spikemd Drifta makes a set of IGT legs that are adjustable. I have them but can never find them on his website. I use them because I can level the table this way.

    Chaser #14. New adventures

    @Tex68w I recall @Scott Brady dragging one through the Arctic Circle behind his Tacoma and I wanted one so badly. But money was tight and I built Homer instead. It served us well and now has gone to a new owner that is giving it some real love again. Just returned from MOORE in Springfield...

    2006 UZJ100 build - bit at a time

    Carefully. The outer trim snaps into place covering the rivets. I did not find it to be a best design

    2006 UZJ100 build - bit at a time

    Maybe Mud is a better place to post this up, but had the OEM windscreen replaced today. I picked up a stone from a log truck during our Canada trip and the crack had now migrated more than a third of the way across from the passenger side. OEM windscreen out showed very little corrosion and...

    That rock thing along the Trans Wisconsin Trail… Maybe that will fall on us as well

    Chaser #14. New adventures

    Trying this out… not sure I am sold on it yet and will probably take a few trips to decide if it is an overall positive or negative. I found a Weatherguard 336-3 a few weeks ago (see back a page) and against some better judgment, I decided to clean it up and mount it in the Chaser. Before...

    Chaser #14. New adventures

    @Rube2K6 I was thinking the same. And then I thought “is it, though?” My Chaser doesn’t have a rear mounted spare/swing out. And what does that weight? And this is 48” long overall which means more than a third of the weight is over or in front of the axel as compared to the spare and...

    Chaser #14. New adventures

    I did a thing…. Weatherguard 336-3 that is 48x20wx 13h. Interior is 10 high. Thinking it will roll out nicely out the back. Need to decide how far this is going to go. An old Coleman 413 would fit nicely if I cut the center rib out of it. It’s heavy. Home Depot lists the weight as...
