I am thinking about getting a 100" trail rig and am seeing some high mileage XJs for cheap.
I got rid of my old XJ(98) at 170,000 miles. In retrospect I think it was balljoints/Wheel bearings.
A friend of mine is still running his(96) at 220,000 miles.
Does anyone have any experience with...
I know that the BFG MTs are popular around here in 255/85.
Does anyone have any experience(had a friend who had a friend that had one) with the Maxxis BigHorns or the Interco TrXus MTs?
They seem to be the only other tires available in that size.
A little big, but it does come in a hybrid and it does have Linux onboard!
Might be tough on tight trails though......
I had signed up for the WineCountry RockKrawlers Mustang Run along with a friend. This is a run out of Reno on a 4wheel drive trail to Virgina City.
Thinking it was a good time to take a few days off from work, I took Friday and Monday off to expand my adventure.

Thought I would start a thread about cool things to do with your radios.
First thing I would start with is APRS;
I have my VHF unit hooked up to my GPS unit so that I can broadcast my position using APRS. This goes into a digipeater with an...

So I go to Hollister today to see how much flex I can get to check tire clearance. White_Eskimo and I were there a few weeks ago and did some flexing, but our flexing was inconclusive and we were still confused.
This morning I took the truck to a local park with a dirt...
Got home today and had my Terra Trax Waffle Boards sitting on the front porch.
I have been looking for Sand Ladders for years, but always found them to be prohibitively expensive here in the states.
Although I saw the aluminum ones at OKOffroad, but I thought that the aluminum might be too...
So now that I have the ARB on on and the IPFs in a box in the garage, I looked at the OEM Toyota Foglamps and the bulbs say 45W on them.
How much of a risk would it be to hook the 55W IPFs to the factory wiring harness for the 45W lamps?
I have the FSMs at home, but nowhere can I find the fuse...
Glad to say that I got my ARB bumper installed last weekend and mounted the winch on this last weekend.
I found that the weight of the bumper and winch combo lowered the front end about an inch. That is with the wire rope and roller fairlead.
The only thing that concerns me about it is that...
So my ARB bumper for the Taco came last week. Word is that if you are going to put a winch on with it, you want to do it when you first put the bumper on.
So my question is how important do you think winches are?
After I put a winch on my XJ, my friends and I all got too busy to get out in the...
One of my Ham buddies was telling me about the Ham Radio Wilderness Protocol after we were discussing Boonie trips to the backcountry.
I thought this might be of interest to the group.
I haven't used this yet or monitored BUT next time I am...
