    Skinny vs wide tires pros/cons

    Here's your narrow Load Range C tire, 9" wide: Here's your wide Load Range C tire, 16" wide: Either one would be pretty awesome on a Prius.

    Best Aggressive All Terrain or Mild Mud Terrain Tire?

    I can definitely recommend the ST-MAXX, which I've used and loved for years. If you wanted a more aggressive tire that's still very street friendly, I can recommend the Milestar Patagonia M/T, although they are not available in as many sizes as the Coopers are. As long as you are diligent with...

    recommendations for a portable air compresor

    I've used my Puma PD1006 to fill the tires of several guys whose PowerTanks had run out of CO2. And the Puma's pressure tank has allowed me to reseat beads, run air tools, and blow dust out of air filters, etc. Sure, it's nowhere near as fast as a high-flow CO2 regulator, but I simply hook it...

    recommendations for a portable air compresor

    I've used this Puma compressor from eBay for over a decade, and I still think they're by far the best bang for the buck. I currently fill my Jeep on 38's, still happy with the speed. Not as fast as CO2 or a York, but I've never come across anyone with an electric compressor that's appreciably...

    Does anyone know about ARK Portable battery boxes and where to buy them

    Still just 2 batteries - the Group 31 AGM that was installed under my rear seat prevented me from being able to fold the seat down. I was looking at other mounting options and decided to go with the ArkPak which allows me to completely remove the battery when needed and also use it as a power...

    Does anyone know about ARK Portable battery boxes and where to buy them

    Since ARK didn't offer any holiday specials for the ArkPak this year, I wound up buying a 730 from an eBay seller and used an eBay Black Friday coupon to save $40. That was the kick in the pants I needed to finally go ahead and buy one after several years of daydreaming about it. I've been...

    ¿What tire size do you wish existed? But does not.

    I shouldn't have to do math to figure out my tire size; if the industry wants to use metric measurements, they need to stop being morons and just do diameter X width X wheel size. And what's with them continuing to use inches for wheel diameter? They got halfway through converting to their...

    Air Opus 2 Sleeper Exterior Walk Around Video

    I really appreciate your videos because as you stated, there's not much of any information on the 2-sleeper model online. I even went to the U.S. importer/assembler since they're local to me, and although they're very friendly, they refused to even let me take a peek into the shop from the...

    SOLD - 2004 Subaru Outback H6-3.0 L.L.Bean (SF Bay Area, California)

    All stock, well cared for and regularly serviced, 3,000-mile oil changes, never taken off road. This Outback has been my 75-year-old mother's car for the last 10 years, so it has been babied. If I didn't already have too many other automotive projects and a home remodel going on right now, I...

    Strongest rear tire carrier for JK

    In addition to the other options mentioned above, let me add the MetalCloak rear bumper & tire carrier assembly to the list of ultra-stout tire carriers. To mine I have mounted a 35" spare tire, a full Titan Trekker fuel tank, a Hi-Lift Jack, and a Trasharoo. In addition to that >250lbs, I can...

    Treadwright tires?

    I ran the 315/70R17 Guard Dogs (molded to BFG A/T KO casings) for a few years on my JK and I really liked them. The Kedge Grip (glass particles and walnut shells) aren't a gimmick - they work great in snow country. I had zero problems with the tires, from daily driving to rockcrawling the...

    Best Aftermarket Seats?

    I've never found an aftermarket "race seat" that was the least bit comfortable. And getting in over those side bolsters always results in a bruised tailbone, especially in a lifted rig. I'll take a decent OEM seat over a "race seat" every time.

    Barn Door for JK factory hardtops

    Agreed, this is a nice solution. But studying the picture, it doesn't look like it's wide enough to fit the length of a large capacity Group 31 battery, especially once it's in a battery box. It looks like a little Group 34/78 is as big as it will fit. Are you able to confirm/deny this before...
