    Is my Jeep too heavy?

    Back on thread subject. When talking about Wranglers and weight, there is a big difference between a JK vs JL Rubicon in their ability to handle it. Just saying.

    Opinions Solicited USED EarthRoamer? worth the $$

    Haha, I’m not an expert of any thing. I acquiesce to you sir. Thank you for correcting me. I don’t think much about the different models and know very little about them only walked inside. However, I have spoken to owners of each model during my years of ownership and 60,000 miles of travels. I...

    Opinions Solicited USED EarthRoamer? worth the $$

    Info on a Tiger RV is easy to come by, join the Tiger Owner’s Forum, it’s free. My understanding as to why Tiger stopped production of the Bengal and Siberian. 3 Tiger models models just over whelmed their small companies ability to sustain production. BTW, I’ve owned RV trailers, truck campers...

    Just a poser shot on way home from tire shop... I got tired of dragging the undercarriage. New Mopar lift and 37" Cooper tires on AEV JL Pintle wheels. 2" more clearance under the differentials, 4" more at the belly pan. Lift and 37's are excellent in big rock trails like the Rubicon...

    2012 Provan Tiger 4x4 Duramax Diesel 15k California

    Nice Tiger. A real shame to see the neglected water leak and rodent issues. Dealer asking price may seem good because of the low milage but don’t gloss over the issues. Repairs could be very expensive and rodent damage may be the bigger of the two IMO. A very detailed inspection of both issues...

    Animal strikes and brush bars

    Aluminess (alum) is hardly more weight than the stock Ram bumper it replaced. Hit mature doe (whitetail) at aprox. 45 MPH(braking hard from 55). Deer went under and 1 ton 4x4 chassis spit it out the back. Truck had zero damage. The drive thru bumper did pay for itself IMO and I recommend going...
