    Solar Powered, Portable Sirius Radio

    Ever get camp set up, and you go to turn on some jams, and you cant get fm radio, or wifi? Sure you could play some music stored on your phone, but that just drains the battery. I looked unsuccessfully for a solution, and decided to just make one! I scored a Sirius Radio, and purchased the...

    Switched our Ford Escape for a FJ62 LandCruiser

    Hey All, I've been a massive observer of these forums for a while now and I feel the need to contribute some more. Last year we built out a little 2005 Ford Escape with the works and took it on a few month trip across the USA. We even installed OME suspension. We loved that experience so...

    Hitch Mounted Recovery Point & Skid Plate

    So I’ve had this idea for a couple of weeks and thought of a few different ways of approaching it. I decided to make a hitch mounted skid plate to protect the receiver, but I also wanted a recovery point capable of accepting a shackle. I didn’t see anyone making one, so off to the drawing board...

    Minimal tool DIY roof rack

    Currently working on a new roof rack. I don't have all the fancy tools so can't weld or bend tubing etc. But this is what I came up with. Built with nuts, bolts, self-tapping screws and basic materials.

    Homemade Dash Bar

    I've always liked the 67 Design's dash bar but I could never really justify paying the full price, it would have been close to $300 to have shipped to me. Now I didn't have the spare $300 kicking around, but I do have a welder and $20 for material to fab up my own.

    Another Drawer Build, This One's Easy Though

    We just finished up another storage drawer system yesterday! This one isn't near as elaborate as our last, but is super easy and inexpensive to build. Can't wait to put "stuff" in it. If you're interested, we produced a detailed video of its construction.

    DIY Inexpensive Quick Release Roof Cargo Box

    Just finished up this project this morning, and thought it was a good thing to share a how-to for. Our 2001 Cherokee is our purpose-budget-built camping vehicle, and we have made a bed platform for the back in order to be able to not add too much size and weight (and cost) with a RTT. The down...

    JKU Rear Seat Delete - Storage Platform

    Just finishing up my rear seat delete. After roughly 2 years of no one sitting back there I figured it was time to make better use of the space.

    Rebuilding a Supercharger.

    A lot of toyota owners have superchargers, and some of us(specifically) land cruiser 80 owners can no longer aquire a replacement unit from TRD anymore, So rebuilding them is pretty easy to do, and brings all moving parts back to new. easy peasy.
