    Why so few GM Builds?

    Maybe it's a regional thing: in the Arizona desert people like them. I love the GM IFS and have never had issues with it. MY GMT800 1/2 ton had ~200,000 miles when I sold it and never needed servicing. Also, I coworker of mine used to work for border patrol and was a mechanic for their...

    Freaking COVID vs adventures grrrrr!!

    Honestly it depends on a lot of things. Some may just be flying to one spot or having issues staying in certain areas because of local "laws"

    Anyone using an GMC AT4 or any other GM pickup for overlanding?

    This is the exact set up I am looking to achieve if I go with a RTT in the future. Looks great!

    I believe you're referring to Greystone Metallic ;)

    Anyone using an GMC AT4 or any other GM pickup for overlanding?

    I have a 2022 Silverado 1500 for an everything truck. I have already done some off-roading adventures in it. I recently purchased a Retrax Pro XR hard cover as its secure, weatherproof, and versatile. Also, here is some more info...

    Help with mounting a RTT (Pickup Truck Bed)

    Ryan, thank you for that info. It is extremely helpful. The tent I'm currently looking at weights 108lbs. I'm trying to stay to something on the lighter side so I can possibly load it myself, or so that my wife and I can both easily load it.

    Easy clean up meals?

    Bag tacos are awesome. Essentially add ground beef (or turkey) into a bag of chips like Beanfields or Doritos along with whatever you want to add. We usually throw in pre-chopped onion, shredded cheese, shredded lettuce, diced tomato, sour cream, and hot sauce. Minus the meat, everything can be...

    Ridiculous descriptions from sellers

    I get putting that in the ad to a degree, since a lot of people seem to not read everything anyway. However, I usually word it along the lines of, "many upgrades and add-ons. Please contact me for a more specific list." The most serious people will show up in person and ask about it while...

    Help with mounting a RTT (Pickup Truck Bed)

    Hello all, I recently brought home a 2022 Silverado 1500 and installed a Retrax Pro XR for the bed cover. I chose the Retrax as it works with t-slot accessories. I have been looking around at roof tents and realized I need to figure out how to mount a tent first. I would like to keep it low...

    New Fed EX delivery van.

    The power plant I work at is happy to sell electricity for these. I hope as they grow, the grid stability does as well.

    Front Runner Slimline II Racks for sale (other items sold separately)

    Strange, it worked fine for me. (It is the same info above, just in a PDF format FYI)

    Why so many negative YouTube videos about RTTs?

    I had two, and agree with issues like cost, be leveled, the climbing in and out can be a burden, and the weight and shape does not help in driving in the wind. I may get one to put just above the bed on my truck: it seems better than roof mounting. Even so, an air mattress, tent, and pump have...

    Most secure pick up bed cover

    I had a Leer shell on my GMC and loved it. Very secure and looked great. My new Silverado has a Retrax Pro XR coming in today that I'll install next week after my liner is sprayed. I went with the Retrax Pro XR since it has t-slot tracks for roof style rails (Yakima, Thule, etc) for tents...

    Gaia vs Onx

    I cannot comment on OnX, but I have had Gaia for over a year now and am very happy with it. I like being able to mark locations and have my phone simply update to get the info I need. I used it a lot in Yellowstone as there was zero service for me there last August, but the saved overlays with...

    The Status of Overlanding Today

    I think it's a glorified excuse for some, but not all. For example, I just got a new truck and plan on doing travel in it as well as use it for daily commuting. I was picky on "needing" things like 4WD, 120V power in the cab and bed, and front and rear bench seats. Of course, some other goodies...

    22 Silverado 2500HD build

    Awesome looking truck! I just got a 2022 1500 last week and love how the newer trucks feel. I just came from a 2006 Sierra 1500, and while it was a great truck, this new one blows my expectations out of the water. Sorry to hear the topper has leaks: maybe adding foam tape at the seals will...

    Is there an "ultimate" tablet for Gaia/GPS?

    Sorry for the delayed reply: and you are correct. That's exactly what I'm saying. It's great. The stereo is the Alpine iLX-W650.
