    Solar charge controller?

    @another_mike , well this is how "ignorant" I am with solar (but trying to learn!!). I have no idea if I'm series or parallel. I bought my fist Renolgy Panel as a solar kit with charge controller. I then bought a second 100Watt panel and it came with 2 connectors to simply tie the panels...

    First time traveling with my two toddlers

    Sure, you can even get the stickers that are "removable" to make your life easier at the end.

    First time traveling with my two toddlers

    I assume you are flying? Buy a few new toys just for the flight (pull out slowly as needed). Get a few books of stickers with their favorite characters. For our boy it was Paw Patrol. They can put stickers all over the windows and seats during the flight and then just peel them off before you...

    Texas to California and Back

    Telluride is a fantastic town. A few options in that area. There is a USFS campground there called Sunshine CG. It's very nice and I believe first come first serve? Another option for free camping is up Last Dollar Rd. Great views over Telluride up there. I'd also plan to get over to Ouray for...

    Gap IID Tool: First go.

    I’ve honestly only plugged it in 3 times so far and was scared the whole time that I’d screw something up!! Starting to get past that now :) I’m really not sure what the lifted height is now? I asked Eric at lucky8 what he recommended I set it at and he said 40mm for all sides and that’s what I...

    Gap IID Tool: First go.

    Yes, If you the get IID tool you do not need lift rods. Of course I'm no expert but this is my understanding and I've had both. You can simply set the height you want with the IID Tool and save it as a profile. You then have the option to leave it in that profile or bring it back down to factory...

    2006 LR3 Oil Question

    I ran Castrol Synthetic 5/30 in my 08 LR3 all the way up until I retired it with 196K. The only thing I'd add is to be VERY careful tightening the pan bolt. It's an aluminum pan/threads and very easy to over tighten and pull the threads. Ask me how I know!

    Official Front Runner Outfitters Thread

    A Thank You Hey Front Runner, I was in your shop with my 2 boys a few months back. I had ordered a rear ladder for my LR4 through Lucky 8 and it was not fitting properly. I brought it to you guys and you got it right in the shop and installed it properly. It has been rock solid since and works...

    I don't know much on this subject at all however I've seen it mentioned several times on this board and others that the poly bushing are a much firmer ride that stock. Could that be causing it?
