    Gas/Diesel Availability

    Hi, I’ve been interested in Overlanding for a bit. I know in North America gas is the predominant go-to type of fuel, but I was wondering, is diesel or gas easier to find in Africa, Europe and Asia. I plan to tour around these continents, and I was wondering what type of fuel is easier to come...

    To date I have had installed an Eberspacher 1.7Kw, a mikuni 2Kw and the latest is a chinese no brand 5Kw which is a direct copy of the Eberspacher D4 with chinese controllers. to date, the chinese jobbie has far exceded my expectations considering it's 150 quid price tag. Not only are these...

    A diesel or not a diesel? That is the question.

    Through discussions on my previous threads, I have narrowed my build down to a truck as opposed to a Subaru Crosstrek or Jeep Wrangler (see Which one?). But here’s my next question... Should I go diesel or not? We intended to purchase a 3/4 ton pickup with the diesel option, most likely GM...

    SOLD Cummins B3.3T Diesel Engine - off the market

    Edit: the engine is now off the market, it's going into a Jeep CJ-5 I originally intended this engine for an overland Jeep Wagoneer build, but unfortunately that's not happening and I have no other plans for it. It's a 2012 Cummins B3.3 turbo diesel I snagged out of a mine transport...

    FrankenJeep or "My Last Ever (Maybe) Truck?"

    Thought I'd take a stab at doing a build thread, after reading through so many excellent ones on this and other sites. However, since I'm such a wordy busterd (term coined by my masters program adviser), it's probably not the typical build-thread. Also... as I've discovered, what works on Rig A...

    To Diesel or not to Diesel

    I'm the current happy owner of a Rubicon Unlimited JK and have owned a TJ in the past. I'm keeping close tabs on all of the rumors flying back and forth about a diesel Wrangler coming off the line in 2019. I'd like to pursue some of the major trails (Rubicon, Black Bear Pass, Drummond Island...

    Compromise

    The Big C word, and even though all of our vehicles are compromises of some sort, none of us like to own up to it at first. Myself, I drive a Subaru, and I'll be the first to tell you that it is a compromise. I can't clear rock ledges or boulders, I have no low range, and my suspension...

    DK_XV - 2017 Chevy Colorado Duramax Build - Daily Driver/Long Distance Roamer

    I picked up my Colorado in July of this year. I traded in my former camping rig (F350 Dually Diesel with a 10’5 Lance Truck camper) as well as my then daily driver, an off-road modified Subaru Crosstrek for a platform that would make a great daily driving truck for my 120 mi commute as well as...

    2001 Dakota QC Diesel

    Hi all this will be a slow update thread but thought I would start a to compile ideas and get input other than my usual lurk method. The short story is I needed a 4 door truck to haul the family for trips and daily drive for work while getting good fuel mileage. Budget was too tight for a...

    "Nanuuq" my Land Rover Discovery 2, ...forever a project!

    Haven't done a build thread on a forum in a loooong time, but here goes. I'll try to catch up the project to the current state. Back in late 2014, after more than a year long search I spotted an unmodified low-mile 2002 Land Rover Discovery 2 a few states away. I'd often pondered about a...
