    Adding Aux Fuel Tank - What should I do?

    Thank you for all the input! As for leaving the pump on, I planned on the switch being lit with an obnoxiously bright LED (perhaps deep blue or purple) so it'd be hard to forget it's on, but I didn't think of a timer. I'll look into that. The back seats sit on a raised floor. The tank would...

    Adding Aux Fuel Tank - What should I do?

    1987 Isuzu Trooper 4x4. My range is about 200 miles with the stock tank (16 gal). Getting about 15mpg highway, 10 city. Isuzu left a gaping cavity beneath the back seats, boxed in by the drive shaft, rear axle, and carrier-bearing crossmember. Measurement show I could fit a (roughly) 9" tall...

    Should I Rebuild my Roof Rack?

    Thanks! Did you use aluminum or steel? (Pardon me if the answer is obvious your notation. I'm a wood working guy, metal isn't my forte). Sent from my iPhone using OB Talk

    Let's see those rigs in action

    Great tip! Thanks - I've heard the trails are pretty dang rough in the SP, and I'm a novice wheeler. Are there plenty of trails that are suitable for a stock-height 4x4 like mine in there? Sent from my iPhone using OB Talk

    Should I Rebuild my Roof Rack?

    For sure! I think I've decided I'm going to rebuild it out of aluminum. The only thing I want up that high is the tent, and anything else I can find places to put lower to keep the CG low. The High-Lift already has a soon-to-be spot on the grill guard and the Jerry cans can mount behind the...

    Should I Rebuild my Roof Rack?

    That was something I definitely though about. But my hang-up is if I did that, then the tent would ride even higher, and the vehicle is already top heavy, and that's more drag on the highway as well. Sent from my iPhone using OB Talk

    Should I Rebuild my Roof Rack?

    Hello all, I've got a 1987 Isuzu Trooper II 4x4. It has a 2.3L 4cyl, so it's underpowered for a large SUV. I welded up a steel roof basket mounted by Highland gutter mounts, it weighs about 90lbs empty. The end goal is to put a roof tent up there (Tepui Ayer). My girlfriend and I didn't find...
