    Photos of mid-sized vehicles - Post Here

    We took Zebra 71 out for a drive and even off-road on Jebel Akhdar. (Still no overloading as the rental villa was too cheap to pass on...)

    IOS camping gear checklist app

    I second this. We use the built-in Reminders app for shopping lists etc. and it's is shared between me and my wife. Works flawless.

    Have A 2003 Kia Sorento 4x4 EX What To Do?

    The 2003 Sorento is an old model but very solid. About the size and capability of the first-ten Toyota Fortuners. Good luck with your medical issues and may this car serve you well!

    *sold* F-250 Lariat 6.7 Diesel Tremor w/ OEV Camp-X (169k, Boise Idaho)

    Apparantly, in some places in Idaho you can still buy a house for that sum. In San Diego you're lucky if you can buy a house below $1m

    Gas vs Diesel Shootout in the Dunes & Sand

    - In Dubai, diesel is mostly seen as something for work trucks/lorries, used by laborers. So it's also a status issue. - Very little "overlanding" in Dubai but a lot of off-roading. Most people play in the sand aka trying to run their SUVs and trucks up as high as possible on the dunes. They...

    Time for a New Truck--MPG is a Priority

    That was my initial thought too. 1500lb payload, matches a lot of midsize trucks.

    Whoa...the new 2020+ Titan Pro-4x has serious potential...

    True. “They lost value because they lost value”. At least they lost value before I bought them :p . But losing value and losing quality are two different things. Toyotas are expensive for two reasons, quality and branding/reputation. I don’t care much about branding/reputation. Back in 09, I...

    Interesting take on vehicle modification

    I think in the US, the insurance company almost always pays out but... then they have to option to recover the money from the insured if there was a violation of the law or gross negligence etc. It's that way to make sure that the 3rd party is taken care of.

    It's not a perfect article but I think a lot of it makes a lot of sense for the rigs we use as daily drivers.
