    Yeti Chair

    Ive been eyeing this over priced chair. https://www.nemoequipment.com/product/stargaze-luxury/. I have yet to see one in person and know they use midgets in the ads.

    New trucks and 4low...

    If batteries could be easily swapped out one could have an Uber like delivery system or even drop points for back packers. Or just rent an extra battery pack and throw it in the bed, Rivian mentioned something along those lines. Sounds like the hybrid f150 will be more of a generator with a...

    New trucks and 4low...

    Interesting thread, not what I expected when I clicked on it. I want to point out that here in America you are never more than 50 miles or so from the grid. There are no gas stations where we go but if there is, there is also electricity. I have been all over the California deserts, Utah...

    Tundra vs F150

    And if we are going to talk about mental issues. Why can’t any of the anti diesel folk understand that the resale of a diesel truck is far better than a gasser. A gasser full-size is a throwaway after 150k of work, a diesel is just getting started. You put more in but you get more power, more...

    Tundra vs F150

    I agree with you, modern diesels don’t really pencil out and the new 7.3 will probably be a big hit. The pre smog diesels though can be had for a good price, brought back to life, and do anything the modern ones can. It’s not hard to get another 200k miles out of a 5.9 or 7.3. Also, while...

    Underwater overland submarine

    Saw that ad too. I agree with Msand, just wonder what insurance and maintenance would be like.

    The latest essential piece of equipment from Yeti

    There is one in my hood. Been there a few times and have left empty handed every time but once. Bought a pair of sweets but the are so tight they may as well be yoga pants. You don’t want to see me in yoga pants. It’s just jock stuff, a few cheap camping items and a wall for everything yeti...

    Show me your cranes, please!

    I think I saw that one too a few years and ago but have not been able to find it again. I wanted to replicate it. I think a headache rack/crane would be a very useful thing for many people. Load your camper, spare tire, or just lift your whole rack to pack and unpack or use as a table while...

    Show me your cranes, please!

    Love my crane, gets used more than I thought. Got mine from harbor freight for pretty cheap and there are vids on YouTube on how to retrofit to an electric winch. The HF model has some play and you need to watch the rust on it, you get what you paid for. Plan on beefing up the deck where it...

    Diesel chip question

    First, be very careful with the chip. My rattled loose once too, it’s taped in now with gorilla tape, no problems for the last couple years. Randomly dying could be the idol validation switch, easy fix but you have to buy the whole gas pedal assembly. Or just try cleaning it, plenty of...

    FWC Flatbed - 6.5 or 8 ft truck?

    You can do it, plenty have before. The issues with putting a longbed on a shortbed truck are departure angle and load. Ideally, you want the load to sit between the axels. I would just go for a longbed truck for what you want to do

    Pop Up Surf Camper for PNW

    I like that but I’m thinking i will need to go custom with my set up. A kit with all the hardware would be cool though.
