    Fiskars says it won't break. Ad copy: "◾Inseparable PermaHeadô insert-molded head will not loosen and prevents overstrike breakage"

    Yeah, they had fixed the piston ring design by 2002.

    Is the platform level with the rear seats with the backs folded down? That's the way mine is set up.

    My Yaesu 1900r ham radio has a voltage meter function, and since it is wired into the house battery, I can use it to check house battery status when the engine is off. When the engine is on it is...

    Good point. I would hope my new $220 battery (Sears Platinum 31) would last more than a year or two.

    I think it is a bit pessimistic to say it will "stay on" indefinitely, it will cycle off quite a bit in my experience. In fact, once the contents are down to temperature, their thermal mass will help...

    It is worth noting that there is not a linear relationship between transmission power and distance. The general rule of thumb is it will take four times the power to double the transmission distance.

    Those numbers might be applicable in open terrain, but you don't get that kind of distance in the north woods. But it is true that some folks have pretty substandard setups.


    That simply doesn't...

    I think this is very true for non-hobbyists. In our group we have had issues communicating with CB between the tail and leader in large groups when we get spread out. So we've been trying to get...

    It does kinda look like an Oztent. Wonder if it sets up as fast. They are both pretty long for transport though.

    Sure, that's what I was getting at, just carry what your rig needs. While sometimes it is nice to have tools to fit other peoples rigs, I don't see it as a reason to carry all the sizes.

    There are several outfits selling magnetic screens for vehicles, I got mine from Magnascreen IIRC. They are nice for sleeping in the truck.

    Do you really need a ton of deep sockets? I only carry three; a 24mm for the crank pulley nut, a 36mm for the pinion nut (and another obscure big nut inside the transfer case, which I sincerely hope...

    Your original post still says you are full, may want to update that.

    Looks like fun. Kinda short notice for me as I just noticed this, but who knows? Definitely been wanting to get down to the...

    I know you said you don't want to lift it, but you should really consider the 919 or 929 coils for the loads you seem to be running. 919s are rated for +220 lbs over GVW and 929s are +440. The 912s...

    Your single battery will be fine for 3 hours, even though a trunk can be hot at times. You will need to run decently heavy gauge wire from the battery, Engels need good juice.


    No.

    Most fridges claim about 1 amp in normal use. Of course they are cycling on and off, so that is an average, and in high temps it would be higher. Even so, a 65 ah battery would probably do fine for a...

    Just get the Trooper shocks. Your lift hasn't changed the IFS range of articulation at all, you are just riding higher in that range.

    And if you got rear shocks that are 2" longer than stock,...

    I have never tried the smaller one, but most of the comments I have seen, even from backpackers, say get the bigger one.
