    What do you think are really good tires for most off road ventures

    I’ve always gotten at least 50k out of a set and then sold them for high dollar, making the new tires cost a lot less.. the last set sold for $400. I’ll be getting the ATX E rated .

    What do you think are really good tires for most off road ventures

    I have to report that after nearly 3 decades of using BFG KMs & KOs I’m going to give the General ATXes a try. I’m not really sure why other than it’s about 150 less for all four corners & they get excellent reviews.. I’ll be keeping the two best KOs for the trailer.. wish me luck with my...

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Yup, we had one of those at our last event. The poor guy had at least 100k wrapped up in a 200 Landcruiser and all the gear. Nothing but whining about scratches and a failed battery system.. unbelievable !!

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Ha!! You’ve made my point, you get it.. there is no definitive definition of “elitist” . The minimalist I know lives in a 500 sq ft home out on 40 acres, raises his own food, is an Overlanders, drives a new 4Runner, has no television, and he’s a nuclear physicist. He has rejected the rat race...

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Hmmmm, I know quite a few minimalists that are quite the eletists in their own right.

    Plow Disc Cooking

    Cmon, beating my head against the wall can be fun.. I taught my girls, “say what you mean and mean what you say” they hated that as teenagers, buy now they are 40+ and thank me for it repeatedly..

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    This reminds me of a gal out on elephant hill years ago. Her husband had just put a large dent in the drivers side rear quarter panel of their brand new LR3. She could be heard screaming at him from far off. I didn’t realize what I was hearing until the small group pulled up for lunch at...

    Has overlanding become elitist ?

    Hey now, I model HO trains, it’s fun to do. In the hobby we call the eletists “ rivet counters”

    Plow Disc Cooking

    We always plowed then disced. Harrows had discs but I’d never seen the two terms intertwined. Plow, Disc, Harrow, ( spring tooth or disc) .. sometimes there was a disc in front of the plow for cutting the soil, that disc was not concave/convex and it may have been called a plow disc. Then...

    What do you think are really good tires for most off road ventures

    Whew boy, I don’t even know where to begin with these statements and I certainly don’t want to come off sounding like a dick, however, sir, uphill traffic always has right of way. I’m not sure where you have learned your trail etiquette but your statement is flat out wrong. Uphill traffic...

    Locating good overlanding

    Here's the thing, as much as it may not be approved of by many folks, there simply are not any "overlanding" routes anywhere east of the Mississippi river. There are however a handful of places left to go "four wheelin", which, if we aren't careful will soon be closed down. ( think tread...

    What do you think are really good tires for most off road ventures

    To answer your question, yes, it is peoples terrible driving habits. I see a lot of folks complain about a certain brand of tire, ( any brand, pick one) that has horrible performance in adverse conditions- rain, snow, patchy ice, etc... hey, if ya drive like an idiot you’re gonna rate any tire...

    Plow Disc Cooking

    C’mon guys, there is no such thing as a “plow disc” it’s either a plow or a disc. True, I’m a bit a-/- retentive but not let’s slaughter the definition of things.. here are plows, an old walk behind drawn by horse, mule or oxen, and two modern plows, an enormous 6 bottom reversible plow and a...

    Bilstein 5100s vs OME OME90021

    I cannot compare the two as I have never used Billstien. Why should I experiment with another brand when the OMEs are tried and true? After 120,000 miles i thought it might be time for new shocks. I put the new OMEs on only to discover that the old one were still good. I’m running the heavy...
