    2016 Ram 3500 4x4 with 2017 Bundutec Flatbed Popup Camper

    Beautiful setup! That looks like a helluva good deal to me. Wish I were in a position to make it happen. GLWS. -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Scare Horn

    I think it would have more value against 4 legged critters over 2 legged ones. I like the Stebel Nautilus. Compact, easy (no add'l air required), cheap, and VERY loud. -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Overland/cross country vehicle: Lexus RX400h Hybrid

    Looks like you pack like I do... use every nook and cranny possible! What are those sand/snow tracks and have you ever used them? They fold up very small. -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Overland/cross country vehicle: Lexus RX400h Hybrid

    Not really. Just control arms or whatever you can find, I guess. I'm scared to know how the tow trucks do it. -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Overland/cross country vehicle: Lexus RX400h Hybrid

    That sounds like a good setup for the vehicle and use type. If you ever need them, I would use both at the same time if at all possible to distribute the forces as best you can. My Sienna is a 2007 and doesn't have any provision for front recovery. Even my VWs (GTI, Jetta) have one place on...

    Overland/cross country vehicle: Lexus RX400h Hybrid

    Do you have any plans for front recovery points? With our Sienna, since it has absolutely nowhere to attach a pull strap at the front (not even tie down loops), I am considering adding a tow bar attachment to the front (like what would be used to tow it behind a motorhome). Not ideal, but at...

    2002 BMW R1150R

    Not anytime soon for this one. It really is ready to go. I did all fluids and "tune up" last fall. Tires are in great shape. I've got some fluids and maintenance parts that go with the bike. Agreed. I think the non-ABS R1150 models are the new airheads. But more reliable. Just as easy (if not...

    2002 BMW R1150R

    Great for on-road adventures (and maybe a little soft-roading with different tires). If admin feels it doesn't belong here, then delete. Location: Richmond, Virginia Price: $3900 (bike only) or $4300 (all luggage and accessories) Mileage: 33,000 miles Well-maintained and NEEDS NOTHING. It is...

    Mod Xterra or Sell for Jeep?

    This. I am a big advocate of not financing toys. Right now the Xterra does everything you want it to do (even without additional mods?). The extra off-road capability of the Jeep is the toy part and IMO, not worth going into a bigger hole financially. -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Tired of all the "huge" RTT's. So I made my own.

    Looks awesome! Personally, I would give up some "low profileness" to be able to leave bedding up there. Oh, and count me in the "not fakebook" camp! [emoji846] -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Costco has a RTT

    Looks like it... "Removable privacy awning is included with the SWT90. Awning allows shelter and privacy for entry." -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Tool Box Chuck box

    Very cool! I've always thought one could be turned into a chuck box. Nice to see it's actually been done. Good job, it looks awesome! -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    A beemer?

    Vixen motorhome. Mid to late 1980s. Unrelated to BMW but they were originally powered by a BMW 2.4L diesel engine and manual transmission (rear engine). The diesel would get 30mpg. Later versions used a Buick V6 and auto trans. The company didn't last all that long. -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U...

    Deep Cycle Batteries - Super Start Marine (Oreilly's) vs Duralast (Autozone)

    I have also had poor luck with Odysseys. Not really available in large capacities (I don't think), but I have had very good experiences with Panasonic VRLA AGM batteries. They're the only ones I use in my motorcycle(s) anymore. -Mike Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Overland/cross country vehicle: Lexus RX400h Hybrid

    Besides the extra power, the nice thing about the 3.5 is that it's a timing chain instead of the belt found on the 3.3. With a couple of oil line upgrades (VVTi line and oil cooler hoses), the 3.5 is very reliable and maintenance free (other than oil and filter changes). -Mike Sent from my...
