    I like the black lug nuts. Normally I like black side walls but with the black wheels, the white letters out may look nice.

    My old ARB has not been running continuously since I bought it around 1995 but it has seen plenty of use. It is a little beat up from many off-road trips but it cools as well as it did new. It...

    Honestly, if I had to choose between the drive and the train ride through Copper Canyon, the drive would win hands down. I am very happy that I got to go on the train because it was a different...

    I have just a couple more shots that were over the limit in my last post.
    This is a shot of the artwork over the gate at Rancho El Coyote where we stayed the first night. For some reason I was...

    This should be my last contribution to the trip report.
    This will give you an idea of the winding road into and around Copper Canyon. Much of it was new but still very curvy and with lots of drop...

    While you could make it with just about any road worthy vehicle, in addition to what had already stated, a larger vehicle would require considerably more attention and would probably be much...

    I enjoyed every bit of this adventure and would not trade it for anything. Some of the highlights have been discussed but it would probably take a book to cover everything. I will add a few more...

    I concur that this was one of the greatest adventures I have ever been on. Frenchie put together and absolutely fantastic trip. We also had a great group of people that Frenchie selected as...

    I certainly would not tell you which to buy but if you go with the Ranger I can give you some information. The 3.0L engine is very durable but many people feel they are low on power. They get only...

    I have never needed one in the more than 35 years of off-roading. I didn't carry one until about 5 years ago and got it then only because it was a requirement for the group I was going with. I can...

    I got the Uniden PRO 520XL and use it with a Wilson 1000 mag mount on the roof. The radio is fairly compact and I have no complaints about it. I get good reception and no one has complained about...

    Have you tried Redneck Trailer Supplies? I got an axle for my race car trailer there. They seem to be able to accommodate pretty much what you need at least they did for me.

    I didn't realize this is a common problem. I have been using mine for 25 years and they are still intact. Now, I feel like they will fail the next time I use them. I have a brother living in...

    A few pounds of extra pressure can also affect uniformity of tire wear. I typically run 33-34 psi front and 31-32 psi rear on the road and get good wear across the tires. Off-road I air down around...

    It is safe to run wide tires on narrow rims but over time you might get some unusual wear on them. I ran 11.5" wide tires on my 7" wide wheels and after about 25K miles I notice uneven wear like...

    The problem with add-a-leaf spring is, they are always there. When you are not towing and there is no weight in the rear, the rear is very stiff and you can feel it in the ride. I also run air bags...

    stingray, I am interested but it looks like you need to remove it from the receiver to open the tail gate. Is that much of a problem? Does it fit snug in the receiver so it doesn't bounce around...

    I owned a red and white 73 FJ55 from 77 until around 91. I never heard of them being called an Iron Pig. I just called it a tank. I loved that thing. Other than the rust problem it seems almost...

    Ok thanks. I went on the Rudd website to see if the 2533 would fit my 10.5x33-15 tires. Unfortunately, only the 2532 will fit my tires.
