    Video: Aluminess Nerf Bar Install on an E350

    The instructions from Aluminess left a lot to be desired, so I thought I'd toss this quick video up for anyone doing the install. Even the website pics were tough to see how the steps mounted. While this isn't a how-to instructional video, it should give you a good idea of what it took to...

    Pop-tops: are they worth it?

    I want a pop top on my van, but I'm trying to make a rational decision (as opposed to the emotional me who wants to pull the trigger right now). Everyone will have different opinions, obviously, but I'd love to hear from those of you with a pop top. What's your favorite thing about having a pop...

    Fred the Van. The More We Explore's Adventure Van Build Thread

    Current state: it's a great van. '97 7.3L, 125k miles, 15 passenger. A little surface rust on the frame (it's from NJ). It's got a lift from Tulsa Truck Manufacturing D60s front and rear, mile marker hubs, and brand new 33s.. I'm not crazy about the lift (leaf spring with shackles in the...

    Big tires, little lift

    Anyone running 37s on a UJOR 6" lift? Or 35s on a 4" lift? I've always preferred to trim fenders and bumpers and save 2" of lift height. I'm having a tough time deciding between UJOR's 4" kit and their 6" kit. I don't need 37s at all, but I sure like the look of a big tire filling a fender.

    Which model/motor do you recommend for an E350 build?

    The wife and I just sold our house to live on the road in an RV full time. We don't have a rig yet, but the only solution that even remotely appeals is an airstream towed behind a 15 passenger E350. I've done a little bit of research, but I need some more advice. My apologies if this question...

    How to pee in the outdoors (for girls) rated PG.

    I have too many friends who's daughters, girlfriends, or wife refuses to join them on their adventures because they're afraid of going to the bathroom outdoors. Let's face it, men aren't that great at teaching girls how to pee outdoors. That's why we decided to put together a little video to...

    2003 Montero Non-build thread

    I just picked up a 2003 Montero XLS from a buddy. This won't really be a "build" thread because I don't plan to build it much. I will make a few modifications though, and I like to document them for my benefit and hopefully others' as well. 2003 was the last year of the XLS. With all the...

    wanted: 2001-2006 Mitsubishi Montero/Pajero

    I'm ready for my next rig. I'm looking for a 2001-2006 Montero. Here are a few requirements. If it's a 2001-2002 it must have the sunroof and therefore the limited slip. I'm ok with any model from 2003 on up. Lower mileage is great, but maintenance is even more important to me. The closer...

    Trip Video: The Maze District of Canyonlands National Park

    Wait. Don't read this trip report yet. Just like any trip to the maze, this TR requires a fair amount of time to soak it all in. Find a time when you have 10-15 minutes and come back to enjoy this trip report then. It'll be worth it. My stories are better told through video via my...

    FS/FT 94 Toyota SAS BUILT daily driver/Expo rig

    I searched long and hard for a clean 3rd gen x-cab 22re. They're getting impossible to find in my neck of the woods, let alone a clean one. I bought this x-cab from Idaho and had it shipped to me in Utah. Idaho doesn't use salt on their roads, so it's 100% rust-free. Just about everything in...

    Thinking about making the switch to a van...

    Ok, a little background. I cut my teeth rockcrawling toyotas. But now I'm at the point where I'm ready to move away from hardcore rock crawling, but I still want to go on fun trips that require 4x4 and stil have a little bit of a challenge to them. I live in Utah and I've seen some 4x4 vans...
