    Trailworthy/Sleep inside?

    I’ll still consider the Jeeps, too since I’m not going to be laying on my back with legs straight out (yep, I just figured that out).

    Trailworthy/Sleep inside?

    Thanks everyone, I hadn’t considered 4runners so that should be interesting to learn more. And yeah, I kind of felt like even a 4 door Jeep would be a tight fit!

    Trailworthy/Sleep inside?

    Hi all, Thinking of trading in my 2-door wrangler for something that is both good on the trails and that you can sleep inside somewhat comfortably (6’1” tall) without doing any major mods. What comes to mind that would fit that? I was looking at the Compass Trailhawk, but it is too small...

    Any Fellow Michigander?

    Where can I find a list of Michigan-ish ;) overland trips for late May and all of June? Would really love to test out this Jeep on a real overland trip. Does anyone know of one? Saw mostly California stuff in the Calendar.

    Heating for sleeping

    I was wondering if there is a solution for a good portable power source that is charged at home - to power a good ole' 12V electric blanket? I was hoping to avoid using an inverter/extra battery and my ceiling in my RTT is too short (40") to run propane heat inside. This is an example of my...

    What is the last thing you bought and plan to buy?

    So the last thing I bought was a 'Bigfoot' rooftop tent. The next thing on the list is either a CB radio or Handheld Ham Radio - if I can ever decide.

    How to use a Tab E Tablet with GAIA premium, off-grid?

    So I've looked through a few posts here and I'm frankly still confused about how you guys get GPS on a tablet while off-grid. I went to two different Best Buys today and they both said that it can't be done with a tablet, which I know must be wrong. I said "I need GPS on a tablet, where there...

    Maps in case of emergencies

    Hardcopy maps ALWAYS come first, but for those whose phone is operable and not pilfered or malfunctioning, its another form of redundancy based on personal preference. Not intended to be the only fallback, by any means, but thanks for the suggestion, I'll check it out - and I'm sure there are...

    Maps in case of emergencies

    Hi all, I just wanted to share an app I found called 'PDF Viewer' and it tells you how to import pdfs from your computer to your phone. It seems like a good idea in case an app like Hema Explorer (Australian Land Nav App) doesn't pull through or if you don't have wifi or cell tower coverage. I...

    Where did you install your OB emblem?

    I posted mine right to the left of my 'Trail Rated' badge, but I had my father place it, since he was in automotive design and I thought he would get a kick out of it! Will post a pic soon.
