    The SHapeSHifter, a work Vuck (vantruck), expedition camper jig.

    I would have never guessed from those first pictures that your flatbed wasn't steel. It's an intriguing concept. How do you like it after running it for 6 months?

    My Relatively Boring 6' x 12' Trailer Conversion

    Those are some amazing pictures. Just remember that that is the main thing, getting out and using it, and enjoying the beauty of nature!

    GM fullsize AWD Van Info thread

    That does sound high. I bought mine 2 years ago for $12,500, it's a 2013 and had 172,000 miles at the time. Similar miles but it was 8 years newer than the one your looking at

    The Danger of using the wrong recovery equipment

    I once had my Tahoe stuck while plowing snow. We where pulling it out with a 3" tow strap hooked to a factory tow hook. Snapped the tow hook off and it came right through the sheet metal on my barn door and was laying 4 feet inside my Tahoe. I was sure thankful it didn't come through 2 feet higher

    Not So Subtle E350 Shuttle - 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed Coil Build

    I have been hoping you would continue this thread. It went a little sideways awhile back but hopefully it can stay back on track now. I've enjoyed watching your van progress, watching problems come up and get solved, and seeing the trips you've taken out on. Also your photos are always amazing...

    2012 Chevy AWD Family Adventure Van

    I have a 2013 awd express. I bought it 2 years ago at 172,000 miles and it has 230,000 miles on it now. I cranked my torsion bars using the stock keys to fit 265-70-17. I gained 2" and in 2 years haven't had any problems.

    If you run one undersized tire it will ruin the transfer case. Your van will think that that tire is spinning since it is turning faster and will try to adjust power to make up for it.

    Van Interior Set Up - for two parents and three kids

    Beginner bike for a non-enthusiast

    I don't know anything about bikes. Not bikes for single track at least. I have a Trek DS 8.3 that I've had for a couple years and I really like it, but we mainly ride gravel trails and roads. I would like to get into mountain biking more but not sure how much abuse I can throw at my current bike...

    Building some Baja Divide Bikes from our fatbikes

    That looks awesome. You were up in my neck of the woods, I live a hour and a half north of Black River Falls. Appreciate the trip report as I'm just getting into some single track riding and have been looking into what's out there for trails. Those parks look fun!
