      I would like a Adventure Is Necessary sticker for my rig. Bit want a larger size, approx 30" wide. I am happy to make my own, but I didn't want to proceed without permission. I don't want to do any copy right infringement. If you have one that's available I would definitely be interested into looking at that. Thanks

      as promised, here is a link on the auto up window mod. https://forum.ih8mud.com/threads/auto-up-window-mod.15277/

      youll need a 1n4001 diode, soldering iron and a small screwdriver. the PCB is labeled where to add the diode and its orientation. takes roughly 30 minutes.

      youre always welcome here in my shop, stop by anytime youre in the area.

      Hello Michael. A few days ago, I posted a request to upgrade my forum status based on my recent membership (OB #4587), but still can't access member only stuff :) Also sent you an email regarding an item missing in my original swag order #9405. Would you be so kind as to look into this for me?

      Thanks! Stuart

      Michael, I signed up for OTG as soon as I got the email, which was literally moments ago. However, during sign-up, the system wouldn't allow me to sign in with email address. I purchased a ticket as a guest as I didn't want to miss out. Just letting you know I'm already an OB member, so if you're sending out anything for guests, please save the letter/coin/etc for an actual guest. Thanks again and so pumped!

      I do have a question for you. That is, how do husband and wife each with rigs join up? Is it each vehicle? Each person or household?
      My wife has her 4runner and I have a Tacoma. We would both like to join.

      I just watched the video on the Overland Bound it's amazing on how you put it all together and knowing that people are there for each other :). I would love to have an Overland Bound even happen in West Virginia or near the area I'm at which would be great. I know a lot of people would love to explore the world more and it never gets old :)

      Hi Michael,
      Do you have a source for vinyl coated 3/16" stainless steel cable? I can't seem to find stainless that's coated.
      I'm attempting to build some limb risers.
      Much appreciated.

      Thanks for all you and your wife do! Not sure if we can request honorary members, but there is a "kid" on YouTube named Hobo Ahle that would deserve it...she has lived the vehicle dwelling and exploring life daily for a few years now. She offers some great tips on vehicle dependent travel as well. Check her out when you have time -https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFAu5dzHq3BJvZsO58N8fXA/featured

      My wife and I just bought our pack. We are extremely excited to start overlanding. I'm curious what you mean by your emblem to view member forums and what not. Does the package we paid for not include a emblem?

      thank you

      So given a ~3" lift on my 80 series, would a DC Drive shaft be appropriate? I seem to get some noise when decelerating, especially down hill and forums suggested this as the fix, the DC that is..

      Michael -

      Is there a way for the alert emails that come to my email to include the post? Sometimes it is easier to read the post in email, rather than to log into the site to see the followed thread.

        Ditto, otherwise I end up just turning off the email.

      Hi Michael I think I am doing this correct, I just got "Two Overland Bound Emblems: New Member" and if I understand your email correctly I suppose to post my request in the account upgrade sticky post under General Discussion. to have my account upgraded your account!

      I think I might have met you today at Black Diamond Café in Emeryville

      Thank for the help
      Hi Michael,

      I've posted in the new member forum and emailed the help section of the website, but no one has responded to activate my member number 3881 so I can access the forum, map and calendar for members. Can you please help me with this. Thanks!
