    I've been a non-official (forum) OB member for a few years and love the community and the outdoors. Haven't pulled the trigger on becoming an official member yet because I would like to dedicate more time to the outdoors before I get my badge (personal "I'd rather be doing it then looking like...

I test drove this truck, as well as the new 2019 Ram 1500 and a Silverado 1500 for a full-size alternative and...

    Annual October Montauk Trip

Montauk is one of our favorite places to spend time and not a bad drive being located on Long...

    Equipment suppliers links

    I do feel like I find myself looking for reputable dealers and online merchants that sell a higher quality item then some of the stuff amazon/Dick's/walmart ect. Especially for camp gear. I think this is a great idea.

    Chevy TBI Idle problem(IAC?)

    To wrap up this post...... Yes, it was indeed the IAC valve that had failed or was failing. This past weekend I changed both that and the connector going to it and the truck idles up the way it should now. While searching the internet I did not run into a lot of symptoms similar to this...

    Took the Jeep to the nearby beach spot yesterday. Cold and a little windy, but above freezing is a nice change of pace!

    Hi-Lift Jack Security

    Got a chance to fab up my Hi-Lift mount since posting this. This is what i decided to go with, now i just probably plan on drilling a hole through the bracket and attaching a bike lock or some type of cable lock.

    Chevy TBI Idle problem(IAC?)

    This one is pretty technical but I can't seem to find my exact problem anywhere and I thought I would share it here and see if we can't figure it out. So my girlfriend has a 95 K2500/Silverado with a 350 Small Block with Throttle Body Injection. Recently in the cold weather the truck has had...

    Hi-Lift Jack Mount

    The Balmy 33-Degree temperature finally allowed me to get outside and do a little work! Just thought I would throw up a few pictures of the Hi-Lift mount I made to go with my tire carrier. Pretty happy with the way it came out. Just have to work on securing it with a lock. Overall...
