    Black Series Travel Trailers??

    It should be noted that if you choose to run a weight distributing hitch(equalizer) that it needs to be disabled before traversing uneven terrain or you may bend the tongue. I spent a week in Raton CO getting my travel trailer repaired, wasn't cheap.

    Dreadlocks outfitting of InTech Discover

    Have you ever considered charging the trailer battery from your tow vehicle in addition to or instead of solar/generator? I was thinking about doing something like a DC to DC charger, 2 gauge wire and some Anderson power pole connectors. I saw someone had done it and was getting 40amps to the...

    Tire question

    I had that size on a stock Zr2 s10 and thought it was too wide for the weight, hydroplaning in the wet and horrible traction in snow. I was on bfg at’s. Probably fine though on a Montero, especially if in a dry climate.

    Tire question

    I was told in tech school that it’s the AWD systems that have a viscous coupling center diff that require all tires to be same height. On a part time 4wd, less of a concern.

    Coyote(s) with mange....what to do?

    Not directed towards anyone: Coyotes are an interesting critter. When Europeans colonized North America they tried to eradicate coyotes like they had wolves, didn’t work. Efforts to kill them off have actually caused them to spread out and multiply occupying every state instead of just their...

    Tandem axle load equalizers. LCI Equa Flex vs CRE3000

    I Installed cre 3000 on my 10,000lb travel trailer, my wife swears that it must ride smoother now as there’s less junk to put back in place(her job) after arriving at a campsite. I know the stock shackles had worn through the **** plastic bushings and were eating through the shackles so I got...

    Curious what the "best" Subaru, new or old, for an overland build.

    I bought a '17 Forester new, NA 2.5 6spd. It wasn't any slower than my 4.3 blazer I had at the same time. I wasn't afraid to rev out that little 2.5 though, if you want low end torque look elsewhere it's a 4cyl. I bought it as a replacement for my '01 blazer which I liked the size of. It was...

    Hey Vortec Guys! / Sierra pickup / Suburban / Yukon etc

    That hose above the transfer case might just be a breather, I usually see a little black cap of sorts on breathers.

    Look forward to reading that build.

    Black Series Travel Trailers??

    I wonder this too. They defenetly have a different approach to towing. For example in the U.S. the Subaru Forrester is rated at 1500# capacity but is AUS the same exact car is rated for something like 4,000#.
