    Tex's 2019 LX 570

    So momma and I have been drooling over 200-series Land Cruisers for some time now, 4+ years to be exact.

    Next Gen Land Cruiser

    So what are the facts and the rumors in regards to the next generation Land Cruiser? I recall reading somewhere about a turbo'd hybrid 6-cylinder or something of the like. Is it coming in the 2020 MY or will Toyota continue to bleed out the 200-series platform for another 2-3 years? I have...

    In your opinion, who makes the best fridge slides at the moment? I just need it to come straight out, I don't need a tilt feature on this vehicle. I know that the 4Runner will become my daily so I would like to go ahead and prep for a slide in the cargo area to mount a SnoMaster fridge/freezer...

    Keep the Power Wagon or get a diesel flatbed???

    Well we've come to a crossroads in our vehicle needs/wants. We know after a trial period with a few different setups on the truck now that we are leaning towards a hard sided pop-up/in-bed camper and momma wants a heater and the ability to stand and to be able to easily load and unload the dogs...

    AluBox versus...

    We've grown tired of using sub-par box store plastic containers to pack our gear in. Broken handles and clasps, flexed out and cracked lids, and questionable durability, they simply don't hold up nor were they ever really designed to be use in such a manner. I know that the ALU-Box has long been...

    Help me understand this

    I have no clue what I need in a mobile based radio, but we have some big trips planned next year and I'd like to get a nice setup that allows me to communicate with others in the group while on the go and as a backup to phones and the Garmin inReach. Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu, GMRS, DMR, APRS...

    Tex's '18 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro build

    Went to look at a TRD OffRoad/Trail for the misses, she was tired of driving my F-250 and wanted something easier to drive/park and get in/out of. Our older dogs must be picked up to get into either of our trucks and at nearly 100lbs a piece that task gets old especially when they fight it. I...

    ***SOLD*** Power Wagon wheels/tires

    sPOD vs Switch Pros

    I am looking to add switches to my 2018 Power Wagon to run switched power sources for a ARB Twin Air Compressor, LED lights, Fridge/freezer, etc. I like the compact size of the Switch Pros 9100 unit and it'll allow me to stealthily hide it in a few areas whereas the sPod 8-circuit touch screen...

    ZR2 vs Gen 2 Raptor vs Power Wagon

    Motor Trend article and video comparing these three awesome rigs out of the box as they drive them across Canada. Interesting to see the pre-test bias and how things shook out at the end. Worth a read and watch...

    Eating crow....2018 Ram Power Wagon build

    Well, after all of the back and forth over the past months on how I'd prefer the Power Wagon to be a diesel and that I'd seriously consider owning one if it were, well I am eating those words now. The misses started looking at them after she saw me responding in Power Wagon threads and they...

    Tear drop (Moby) vs Expedition (Turtleback/Patriot)

    I went ahead and sold my beloved Polaris RZR XP4Turbo in order to free up the funds for the purchase of an expedition trailer. We will be towing this behind a Ford F-250 Super Duty on 37's and eventually behind a 4Runner or possibly even a 200-Series Land Cruiser, but for now it'll be behind the...

    Full size rigs-Airing down

    So for those of you running rigs in excess of 7000 lbs (i.e. 3/4-1 ton trucks/suv's) with tires 35" or larger on non-bead lock wheels, what pressures are you running when you air down? I run 50-55 psi under normal conditions and I have aired down to 30 psi just messing around, but I am not sure...

    Camp stove pots

    I have been looking for a set of pots to use with the camp cook stove. I love the stackable GSI stuff, but I would rather have stainless steel or brushed aluminum than the non-stick coated surface stuff and that's all that GSI offers. Primus makes a nice two pot set (3L and 1.8L with lids) with...

    Camp Stoves, lets discuss

    I plan to carry a Skottle to do most of my grilling and frying while traveling, but I obviously need a stove as well for boiling water/vegetables, making soup, pasta, chili, beans, etc. I want something simple, durable, and reliable. Most of the options I am seeing from Camp Chef, Coleman, and...
