    How would you prep a vehicle for international travel?

    For the sake of conversation, I dream of packing up my tacoma and either driving through Central America or shipping to South America and exploring once I finish my degree. It seems like lots of users love to lift their trucks and run large tires, run heavy steel bumpers, etc which are...

    Recoating powder coated metal

    Hey guys, let me know if this isn't the right section. I have some rails on my bedsides of my Tacoma that I use to mount my bed rack, mount crossbars for hauling kayaks, and are just general purpose tie downs (they're built from a modified Adarac for the curious). Over the past couple years...

    Need some advice for a bed rack rework

    Hey guys, I'm in no way a fabricator so I could use some advice from someone who is more knowledgeable. I trusted a buddy who is a professional fabricator to build me a rack, well he took my money and gave me half of what I wanted and half mediocre last minute work. The tray itself is well done...

    What to look for on a 1975 FJ40?

    Hey guys, I may be trading my '08 Wrangler unlimited for an FJ40 + cash soon which is a vehicle I've wanted for a good time now. The owner says its a 1975, I'm still waiting to hear back from him with some more information. I'm pretty familiar with general vehicle maintenance from working on my...

    Anyone fly fish in stillwater?

    So last spring I may have impulse bought a 10wt rod and reel combo to try out some stillwater fly fishing in the sierras off of my kayak (also may take it out with me on my kayak for ocean fishing). It was a great idea but it's been sitting in my closet unused ever since because I'd get about a...

    Could the new NA spec Ford Ranger be the perfect international truck?

    Hey guys, sorry if this topic has already been touched on, I don't frequent this section since I'm a Toyota owner. I keep up with general truck market information and was personally pretty excited to hear that ford would be bringing back the Ranger to the NA market since I love Ford's general...

    Anyone use a Mountain Hardwear Shifter 4?

    Hey guys, thanks to a deal through work I get access to the Mountain Hardwear/Columbia employee store which is usually 35-60% off depending on the item. My coleman tent has served me well for the past 2 years but the lower quality is really starting to show and its not handling being broken down...

    Custom bed rack for 2nd gen Toyota Tacoma

    First, pictures: Hey guys I'm putting up my custom made bed rack for sale. This is a bit of a controversial rack that lead to a rocky dissolving of a friendship, so I want it gone, all offers will be considered, it is bulky so local pickup is a plus. There are good and bad aspects, this...

    iOS GPS app with pencil integration?

    Anyone know of a GPS app for iOS that allows usage of the Pencil? My GF (she's the navigator) and I have been using benchmark maps, but once you start doing multi-state trips they get bulky to carry. It would be great if we could get an app to replace them for on/off road usage, but the biggest...

    Mounts for a 12.9in iPad Pro?

    Hey guys, I'm hoping to move entirely away from paper maps and use my ipad pro instead. I've found plenty of mounts for smaller ipads, but not much for the 12.9". Ultimately I'd be using it on a RAM system, but the only one RAM offers is the tough tray which looks way too bulky for me. Anyone...

    2008 Jeep JKU

    Selling my jeep wrangler, it's what got me into offroading but now that I spend most of my free time taking trips in my Tacoma, it hasn't seen more than 200 miles in the past 2 years. CL add here: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto/6006132276.html Location: San Francisco Bay Area...

    Load range E on a tacoma?

    Hey guys, I'm looking for a new set of 265/75R16's. I found a good price on a set of BFG KO2's, but it looks like the only load rating on Tirerack.com in that size is a load rating E. A 10 ply tire seems like serious overkill for such a small truck. Has anyone run these tires? Would running them...

    Realistic price point for a 3" lift on a DD?

    Hey guys, I have a 2015 DCSB that I DD and overland in. In the almost 3 years I've owned it, I've put nearly 15,000mi of overlanding/road trips on it in addition to DDing. That being said, 90% of its day-to-day driving is purely DD highway driving. So now I have a decision to make. I've finally...

    DD with bed rack?

    For a trip this summer I had a bed rack made by a fabricator I know for my 2015 Tacoma DCSB. Unfortunately (its a point of conflict) the finished product has some issues, one of which being the fact that it weighed in well over 100lbs. Due to the way it mounts, it requires at least two people to...

    Feeler: Custom-ish 2nd Gen Tacoma rack

    Putting out a feeler on my modified rack system for my 2nd gen short bed Tacoma. The system is based off a modified KB voodoo bed rail with an Access Original Tonneau cover. On top of the voodoo rails is a shortened Access Adarac system. Using the adarac system there are multiple configurations...

    California Defender owners please chime in

    Hi guys, let me preface by saying I've done a fair amount of research so far and I know the struggles of registering a defender in California. CAFE seems to have shut down every idea I've come up with on being able to bring a defender in. In an ideal world I'll wait until I find an older 110...

    Passenger friendly laptop mount?

    Hey guys, I see tons of laptop mounts here that look great, but all I can find both here and on other websites seem to be driver-oriented. I prefer driving and my SO prefers navigating so we have a good routine. I've recently started using my laptop more to store PDFs of relevant mapping data...

    Offroad-friendly kayak mounts?

    Hey guys, this may be a silly question but this seems like the best place to ask it. This past spring I recently got into kayaking and absolutely love it. I've been playing around with the idea of taking it with me when I go places, as the idea of kayaking in Yellowstone, Banff, or the various...

    Thoughts on dewalt tough chests?

    I'm getting a bedrack custom fabbed for my tacoma for an upcoming trip this August and have been hunting around for the right waterproof boxes to put on it. I was in Home Depot last night picking up some stuff for my kayak and found these on sale. On a whim I picked a couple up to see how they...

    Who here brave it without rock sliders?

    I started my 4x4 endeavors wheeling so I'm pretty use to the safety of rock sliders. I use mine on my jeep fairly regularly. My tacoma on the other hand has never seen above rugged dirt roads and I doubt it'll see much worse. The toughest I ever aim for in the taco is moderate/light trails in...
