    Honestly if I was to choose between these two very different trucks it would come down to the deal $ would make the difference. Which one is cleaner as equipped to suit my particular needs. Its very difficult to make a suggestion for you without a lot more data. Exact info on these trucks...

    Camera bag vs backpack

    Personally I prefer backpack over a camera bag. When traveling camera bags tend to be a target for high value equipment. It also makes me think really carefully what I intend to shoot to bring only what I need not equipment or lens that I will not use. Most of the time I use a small sling bag...

    Which vehicle do you recommend

    We have an xterra in the group that I wheel with and it is constantly underestimated not just for ability but cost of ownership being low. Now owner has over 200K with no major issues running $150 lift 285/75-16 (off my cruiser)

    Which vehicle do you recommend

    Depending how tall you are you might make a Nissan X-terra Pro-4x (factory rear locker) decent mpgs, inexpensive to buy, maintain but a more limited accessory market. I've slept in an 80 series for years it was long enough but as you stated mpg isn't so good ~11mpg with 35" tires.

    Anyone build own 18650 12v battery?

    I am considering building a 100AH 18650 battery pack for my rig. Currently I have 400w solar (Just finished building), 30A MPPT controller with li support + custom settings 2 x 100amp deep cycle I would like to reclaim some space and weight hopefully also allowing for deeper drain cycle...

    Solar Battery Question

    Only thing that you did not specify was where these batteries are located. If you are using non-sealed lead acid batteries you want them in a well vented area.

    No decisions made yet still weighing my options there are a few other considerations. I am just doing my research on what my options are... Even if there is not a lot of overlanding, exploring by 4x4 that's ok as I love the water as well as trying to get into paramotoring.
