    STOP! In the Name of......Stopping We all need to just stop occassionaly. Stop hate, stop Nazis, stop sexism, and stop our trucksThe brakes on the Crow were doing OK but with 64,000 miles the pads were due to be replaced. I've used EBC pads and rotors on the Tundra for years. They've always...

    The Wild Crow - A Not So Wild Build Thread

    Take A Breath, Take Your Time, Spread Your Wings and Rise Here is the latest truck project. A few years ago we gave the truck a Wild Crow graphic on the hood. Over the few years it was on, the vinyl wrap became brittle and cracked and peeled in places. We decided to paint it on, so I gave it a...

    The Wild Crow - A Not So Wild Build Thread

    RUBBER BABY BUGGY BUMPERS? Nah, these are steel, all steel baby. I've wanted a matching bumper for the rear of the Wild Crow ever since we installed the front winch bumper. The factory chrome rear just looked out of place and I really disliked the placement of the trailer plug. We needed...

    The Wild Crow - A Not So Wild Build Thread

    It seems SOS Concepts had a sale and I let myself get talked into participating. The sale was good, and with South Carolina only 460 miles away we decided to save shipping costs by planning a camping/fossil hunting trip. We hitched up the Tundra. Yes the Tundra. We wouldn't have time for an...

    The CrowsWing - Offroad Teardrop Trailer

We've added 2700 miles onto the trailer (17,800ish total since building) and camped another 20 days...

    100,000 miles

    285 Here's hoping! They have a noticeably different sound. A little louder but not bad. They seemed to perform well in the rain this morning The original ST was a 2 ply tire with a very durable side wall. All those made me think Cooper, or subsidiary, maybe a RIP off copy. I may never know...

    100,000 miles

    Well after a solid 60,000+ miles the second set of ST Maxx treads are down to 6/32" left. That's 4800 miles per 1/32". They wore flat and even and I really wanted a third set...... I replaced them today with a set of Eldorado Wild Trail CTX tires. The same 285/75/16 size. Why the switch...

    Kitchen Kit/Chuck Box

    Go back to the very first post. That's the box we used for years. It rode on the rack, water tight. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    The 255/85R16 Tire Official List

    The ST is a narrower tread, older design and is louder on the road at freeway speeds. Both are excellent off road. The ST Maxx is quieter and more civilized on road. My preference is to the Maxx for its side walls and quieter ride. I don't really notice the weight difference. Sent from my...
