    This little guy showed up today! Now, if I only had time to play with it. Things might settle down in a couple weeks and I'll get to take it out. I honestly didn't know if I should get the 48" or the 60" but I figured being a full size truck, the 60's would probably be better. The thing sure...

    Do we have any friends here that like Horology or like to collect watches? I've found a watch that I've fallen in like with but I don't care for the Brand. It's a Tag Heuer Formula 1 GMT Calibre 7 WAZ211A.BA0875. I love everything about it except the brand. I'm not ready to step up to the...

    CB or HAM?

    As the great poet Shakespeare once pondered, "CB or not to CB, HAM is the real question?" I have a fairly dutiful old CB that is about to be retired. Since I found Overlanding I honestly haven't used it much and since I'm in the middle of this build I'm questioning if I should go CB or HAM? I...

    Polyurethane Bushings

    How many of you have changed your bushing and used Polyurethanes instead of the standard rubber? I have always went with Poly bushings in my hotrods but I'm not sure how they'd stand up vs. something like a better designed Moog part.  I'm referring mostly to the front end but have any of you...

    Lamp placement height OTF

    The current trend with safari lighing is the high powered LED's but I was wondering if there is any science to the placement and type of beam people choose. I'm sure all of us realize that many people buy what looks cool (and cheapest) over what works right and even fewer people know where to...
