    78 Bronco

    Rear seat is in it, could use a recover. Engine was running 2 years ago when parked. Down on power, thinking the CAT may be plugged up, its the original, as is everything else. Took dash apart to fix the speedo that went bad and remove the old after market AC assy. Have not had the time or...

    Found it on Amazon, cant remember the name, a bit wobbly, may need to weld it to make it more stable.

    5.9 or 6.7 Cummins? Want to weigh in?

    I have an 06 and a 92, 250 k on the 06 and 222 on the 92. Would not even think of buying anything newer than an 06 due to the emissions nightmare. Like to keep it simple.

    Mojave Road is more for jeeps, but it can be done with a big truck and camper.

    Which Radio ?

    Past my Tech test, I am now a HAM! Thinking I may buy one of the cheap Chinese HAM radios and go with a hard mount GMRS. The reason being the GMRS will be for trail driving and the HAM portable for hiking or SAR work.

    Bug out challenge

    Need to get this back on track, saw some silly and some good ideas, but I still don't see anything better than my rig. Something to think about is the fact that it can burn kerosene, veggie oil Etc. While gasoline is more plentiful it could get harder to find in a disaster. BTW will be doing my...

    warn m8000 rebuild

    Rebuilt my 8274 which was ancient, and they still had parts. These are not complicated, just tear it down and look for what needs replacing.

    Have any of you thought of a place to meet up with your family/friends in a bug out situation ? Boonies if you have supplies or near possible resources ?

    Which Radio ?

    Still on the fence, don't want a forest of antennas, would like just the CB and GMRS/HAM combo. Looks like most trail rigs are using GMRS, maybe I can go with a mounted HAM and handheld GMRS? Trying to keep things simple.

    Which Radio ?

    There has been much talk about which radio to get, but I am getting ready to take my ham tech test and it seems many Off Road people are using GMRS as well, so do I buy a combo radio that does both? heard it may not be legal, but would hate to have a CB, HAM and GMRS in my truck.

    Bug out challenge

    Not an issue (Creek crossing) living in the high desert, but a good point, I would say know your environment and the potential issues like that were you live. Idealy you would want to shelter in place, but sometimes you need to run to the boonies.

    Bug out challenge

    Good replies and some very entertaining! My FourWheel camper holds plenty of water, but I do not keep it full so, will need to carry a filter system if I do not have the opportunity to fill it. I keep a weeks’ worth of MRE’s in it along with other goodies. Have my BOB ready and other than that...

    Bronco.

    After I am done with my overland rig, if I dont sell it first, I am turning my 78 bronco into an overland rig, these new trucks cost a fortune and require some serious coin after the purchase to make them off road capable. I hope I'm wrong, but it sounds like the new bronco will just be the new...

    Bug out challenge

    As many of our Overland rigs will qualify as Bug Out vehicles also, I would challenge my fellow over landers to come up with the best bug out rig and why. I will start with my own. Assume a natural disaster that leaves your city infrastructure severely damaged or society breaks down or an EMP...
