    Battery Maintenance - Is this something you do?

    Lately, due to our current situation, I have been driving less. The Jeep comes out about every two weeks or so. In order to keep the battery conditioned, I installed a modular solar system.

    Thoughts on upgrading trans/rad/oil coolers on older model trucks(20+ years)?

    What is everyones thoughts on upgrading their rigs to full aluminum or insulated lines? My truck is 25 years old and as far as I know the radiator is OEM. I'm worried that the high rpms that come from wheeling will degrade my engine without proper cooling...Thoughts?

    We personally feel that this is a subject most people either don't think of, or leave to the professionals i.e. mechanic shops/dealerships. Which is totally fine because you either don't have the tools, or knowledge/experience to do so on your own. So having a professional perform this...

    Keeping things trashy

    now that I've had time to work some of the kinks out of my rig, I figure it's time to make a build thread. This isn't my first subaru build, but decided to go auto with this one.

    Hi-Lift Maintenance

    I know many of you have mounting points for your hi-lift on a bumper, basket, rack, etc. Do you keep your jack mounted there all the time, or take it down when you're not overlanding? How do you keep it clean, and how often do you lube it up?
