    Re-name The Jeep Cherokee And Grand Cherokee....

    This is NOT going to go away. Cherokee Nation chief tells Jeep to rename its SUVs (msn.com) One of the most successful vehicles of all time, and one of the most awarded. I would advise Mother Mopar to get in front of this and get it over with. Please try to keep this civil so as it doesn't...

    Higher Fuel Prices And Overlanding

    I took this picture Nov. 8th, 2020 because I had a feeling we may never see this again. As pipelines close and more restrictions increase the price of fuel, this will surely have an effect on the ability for some of us to travel. My Hemi actually gets pretty good mileage with the 8 speed. If...

    Fiat Chrysler to become Stellantis....

    Will be #4 Worldwide behind VW, Renault Nissan, and Toyota. Fiat and Peugeot shareholders green light jumbo car merger - MarketWatch I hope they keep Walter Chrysler's name alive. I've been a Mopar fan since my first car, a 1966 Chrysler 300 (with a 383) outran a show-off in a Camaro in front...

    Happy Thanksgiving, ya bunch of turkeys...

    We may argue tires, lifts, brand, model, engines, and stuff but we all agree. A good meal is hard to beat. May God Bless America.

    High Mileage Rigs And Legendary Powerplants

    I owned a 1994 Toyota SR5 2wd pickup for 13 years. That little 4 cyl. 2.4 was supposed to be capable of 300,000, but after about 160,000 I had a lot of issues with that truck and it was serviced quite well. It was the last year before the Tacoma however, I think, and that's been quite a success...

    How To Identify Hoat / Oat Coolant.

    My wife's 2015 Patriot SHOULD be OAT. However, it's hit a few deer and spent some time in the body shop a few years ago, so I want to be sure. I checked the coolant around Thanksgiving and it tested good for the winter, but I might want to change it this summer. Is there a test strip or...

    Mastercraft Courser AXT 2...

    Mastercraft tires are built by Cooper in the U.S.A. They are sold in smaller locally owned tire shops, many in America's Heartland. My wife got over 60,000 miles on her last set of Mastercraft's on the Jeep, and I just put these AXT 2's on my Ram. New tires always feel better, but I gotta say...

    Ratchet / Sockets ...

    Since a mishap I'm in need of a better travel hand tool kit. My older American Craftsman set is gone and the new ones are Chinese and 12 point. In a pinch I bought a Kobalt set last year and it's junk. The 3/8 ratchet locked up on the FIRST use, Lowes gave me a bit of a hassle (hassle free ?)...

    It's 1 Degree (f) On The Ohio River...... Starting Procedure..

    I like to let my truck warm up a few extra minutes when it's this cold. I'm running a 5W20 Pennzoil Ultra Platinum Synthetic which flows good, but I just think the metal should be allowed to get to temp before stressing. How about you? I also wonder about transmission temps.

    What's Your Motor Oil ?

    Since buying the new Ram, I've been researching oil. Sheeze..... Mine was a leftover 2016 so I was concerned to get the OEM paper filter changed because it was likely 2 years old and had the dealer change it with 5-20 Penzoil Conventional due to it's high moly count and Chrysler spec while it...

    New Bighorn......

    Just picked up this leftover 2016 Bighorn 4x4 CC. Steps are on order, it has the protection skid plates and tow hooks. This is the trail down to my hunting cabin. This isn't really a build thread, just a new truck for an "old man adventurer". I don't stray as far as you youngsters, but it's...

    Borg Warner 44-44 "Auto 4WD" and such Transfer Case...

    I'm getting near in the market for a new truck, and my '05 Ram 1500 has been a very good one. I notice the upper level trim on the new Rams (Sport, Bighorn/Longhorn, and Laramie) don't use the 44-45 (chain) anymore and has the 44-44 clutch driven transfer case. I'm seeing/hearing mixed reviews...

    What's your Multi-Tool?

    The tool thread made me wonder if we'd ever done a multi-tool thread. Rather than search............... I've gotten to where I keep this on most of the time because I fear if I leave it at home, I might need it and die or something. This is an SOG Powerlock WITHOUT scissors. I'm pretty sure...

    How Many Old Jeeps Were Killed Making "The A Team"?

    They are running old re-runs of the original series and I forgot how goofy those were, but sheeze...... I realize Hollywood has tricks that limit the damage, and they rebuild stuff and re-use it many times, and re-use footage as well, but they still seemed to have a pretty good budget.

    My Next Truck.........?

    I need a truck for maintaining our hunting land/cabin/pond, along with our family Patriot for exploring with the family. I found my next one. I'm going to start saving now. It'll be a few years before I can afford a used one....... http://www.ramtrucks.com/en/power-wagon/

    What About A Machete ?

    I've had one of these for a few years and had good luck with everything SOG. I bought my wife a Gerber the other day that's a little smaller, but looks okay.
