    Harbor freight winch?

    Shameless plug I am selling a 2 year old Warn ZEON 8-S for $600. [emoji57] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Limitations of a 2WD Truck

    Hey, I’m sorry if I sounded like a jerk. Not attempting to lecture. Not judging how you wheel either. One of my friends is a convert from a 2wd 4Runner to a 4wd Landcruiser (FZJ80 like the OB flagship). It’s not an easy conversation to have. In fact, it sucks manufactures even make 2wd...

    Limitations of a 2WD Truck

    I’m saying, without question, taking a two wheel drive vehicle off-road, on a trail that requires a “running start”, is irresponsible. It’s bad for the entire community and selfish. Can it be done? Sure, we all know that. Should be be done? No. The OP will have a much more enjoyable and...

    Limitations of a 2WD Truck

    I’m sorry but this is awful advice. Please read up on TreadLightly! and the TREAD principles. Trails are being shut down all over the place and your advice is to take a running start? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Limitations of a 2WD Truck

    Sell the 2wd and buy a 4wd. In all seriousness, it’s irresponsible to take a 2wd off-road. They tear up the trails and often get stuck requiring a second vehicle to recover them. Trade in your tundra and get a 4x4, even if it’s a couple years older. The 4wd will hold its value longer...

    Bumper Option

    This is a fair question. It’s a lot of steel and the radiator is very well protected. Hoops would be nice. If I could do it again I would likely go CBI or even ARB. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Harbor freight winch?

    Y’all if you are looking for inexpensive winches, look at the Superwinch Tiger Shark. It’s slow, but you will be hard pressed to find a story of one failing. Superwinch is endorsed by Bill Burke, basically everyone in the International 4Wheel Drive Trainers Association (“I4WDTA”), and Overland...

    Bumper Option

    SSO is a popular pick, so is HWM. The steel options don’t add much weight when paired with a smaller winch. Either way the front will sag without upgraded Springs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bumper Option

    $1165 for that?! Offers zero protection from radiator damage and doesn’t improve the approach angle? At least lighting a sack of cash on fire would give off some heat. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bumper Option

    I don’t understand aluminum armor. One weekend on the trails can crack aluminum skids. I had a hidden winch mount for the first year and got frustrated with the lack of access to the winch drum. Didn’t take a huge loss on selling it. I wouldn’t recommend them though because of the reason I...

    Harbor freight winch?

    Superwinch is the brand you want. Talon is a great winch that’s been discounted. Tiger Shark is slower, but great value. I wouldn’t buy anything from Smittybilt or Harbor Freight. Warn makes a quality winch. Forget the wireless remotes. Save up for synthetic line too. Sent from my iPhone...

    Overlanders living in their rigs for extended periods of time?

    Matt Foley did, but it was less Overland, more like a van down by the river. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Cool new shower enclosure - anyone seen these in the U.S. yet?

    Identical in what way? Looks like Velcro loops. Can you post photos? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bit Off More Than I could Chew on Trey Mountain Rd.

    Since you’re east coast, look into doing the 4wd 101 class at Uwharrie National Forest. It’s run by a company called UROTC which was just purchased by Overland Experts. Everyone is an I4WDTA certified trainer and no matter what 4x4 you have (or how long you’ve been driving) you’ll improve your...
