All very cool!
If anything the Venza is not an "SUV" in my mind, it's very much a wagon. I like wagons (though not with 19” wheels), but apparently few American do, so cars that are much closer to a...
Pulleys for a hoist to lift a boat onto the roof?
My part of the west (Nevada) is also often very windy. With personal experience with both a Kimberley Kamper and Eezi-Awn RTT I'm impressed with the taut sides of my FWC.
The flapping from either...
You are a generous and trusting friend :)
Comfortable seating is one of my main requirements for ease of driving/ long-distance travel, as well as overall vehicle ownership pleasure.
Great interior refresh and clean up!
I think your guess is probably very close at around 250#
I'm not against aluminum but there is much to be said for a heavy-duty steel bumper.
Tank tough is perfect!
I purchased a used and inexpensive moto, a rare move for me.
I'm FWC poor ;)
But with the snow flying maybe you were able to get a good price on the moto. I too purchased a moto this winter.
Here is looking forward to many nights in the campers, this spring and happily...
Do you know your total rear bumper and tire swing-away weight? What is and the cargo load poundage?
I've been working on mine lately and looks like I'll have some serious weight when loaded.
I don't think so, search the size on Goodyear's site. Maybe the were in the past, like many treads were.
Glad to hear it's going to a good home.
Wow, fantastic job.
Only you can decide that. I'd ask myself how much time I routinely drive above 80 MPH, if the tires would be loaded to their maximum, how well you watch inflation pressures, etc.
Yep, sounds like a very good choice for your application.
Stock wheels and 255/85 are one of the best 33" setups for many vehicles. In real world terms a 255/85 will give you about 3/4" of...
Driving moderately, the fuel economy one can squeeze out of such a large, heavy, and modified truck can be impressive. I think the aerodynamics of the body helps, but more importantly the very tall...
Agreed, a good idea if it works.
That's always been my experience with a few sets of the F-C II, they wear slow and grip to my liking.
The S/T MAXX is a heavy-duty tire, I'm surprised anyone thinks the sidewalls flex too much.
I've driven on plenty of sand, though it's not my typical terrain, I wouldn't say I'm an expert on sand driving.
A 305 mm tire on an 8" wheel is on the narrow end of the wheel specs, so it's...
I don't know what those wheels are from or their weight rating, but the 7" wide will be fine/perfect.
255/85R16 can be successfully used on 7", 7.5", and 8" wheels; I have. One could argue that 7" is ideal, though I never had a problem with the wider wheels, including low psi off-highway use on a...
Agree with both statements. M55 is quieter, different (higher pitched) but quieter.
Toyo M/T can wear amazingly fast depending on the conditions...when I eventfully get around to finishing my...
