    The CrowsWing - Offroad Teardrop Trailer

    You know I don't even remember for sure. It was something like 250 each. I'd have to research that for the actual. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    The CrowsWing - Offroad Teardrop Trailer

    Just when you think I'm all done, here I am, back again. After a successful 2018 camping season that found us in (variously) Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina,Tennessee and West Virgina. We've added 2700 miles onto the trailer (17,800ish total since building) and camped another 20 days...

    100,000 miles

    285 Here's hoping! They have a noticeably different sound. A little louder but not bad. They seemed to perform well in the rain this morning The original ST was a 2 ply tire with a very durable side wall. All those made me think Cooper, or subsidiary, maybe a RIP off copy. I may never know...

    100,000 miles

    Well after a solid 60,000+ miles the second set of ST Maxx treads are down to 6/32" left. That's 4800 miles per 1/32". They wore flat and even and I really wanted a third set...... I replaced them today with a set of Eldorado Wild Trail CTX tires. The same 285/75/16 size. Why the switch...

    Kitchen Kit/Chuck Box

    Go back to the very first post. That's the box we used for years. It rode on the rack, water tight. Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    The 255/85R16 Tire Official List

    The ST is a narrower tread, older design and is louder on the road at freeway speeds. Both are excellent off road. The ST Maxx is quieter and more civilized on road. My preference is to the Maxx for its side walls and quieter ride. I don't really notice the weight difference. Sent from my...

    FM82 Offroad Teardrop Build

    Moisture ruins things quick. We have to keep our teardrop under cover and filled with damp rid when we aren't using it. Left to nature ours would've been ruined years ago. Glad you're back into it,! Sent from my SM-G960U1 using Tapatalk

    The Wild Crow - A Not So Wild Build Thread

    That's the one! I didn't know it was an issue until I was on Tacoma World. For the cost of the filter I figure you can't go wrong by doing the mod. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk

    The CrowsWing - Offroad Teardrop Trailer

    Back in May, we finally got to install the one thing that I wished for from day one.. Solar Panels! We purchased 2 of those cheap flexible 100 watt panels off of Amazon (Allpowers - it's Amazon's choice), along with 40 feet of cable and a nice el cheapo PWM solar charger. I hear what you're...

    The Wild Crow - A Not So Wild Build Thread

    You know if you've been there that Flagpole Knob can be quite busy. We had traffic drive past at all hours of the night. On Sunday morning, after coffee and breakfast wraps we all packed up. We headed off down FR85, a much easier path than the previous day, I'm sure Casper was OK with not having...

    The Wild Crow - A Not So Wild Build Thread

    Well, you see Casper wanted to get his truck, his trailer and his wife all "off grid" being the kind soul that I am, I agreed to lead him to the wilderness where he could test his set up for a weekend and finally eschew those dreaded campgrounds. A few thoughts came to mind: It was a long...

    June 2018 THE AIR NEAR MY FINGERS Air, we breathe it, our trucks breathe it, our tires need it. I've been carrying around a Masterflow MV50 (or a variant thereof, I don't remember, I'm old and too lazy to go out and look) to air up the tires on the Wild Crow when needed. It's a good little...

    June 2018 THE NON ELECTRIC SLIDE(RS) The rock sliders are finally on. I bought these years and years ago for the Tundra. Never installed them. The stayed in the corner of the garage for about 8 years! I finally cleaned them up and welded some 3/16 inch plates to them. The plates allowed me...

    Just for kicks gets some shots of the inside of the gas tank. I took these before installation... On a secondary and unrelated note. My Baja Design flood lights had to be removed in order to pass inspection.......10 minutes tops to remove them.......10 minutes tops to reinstall.....

    November 2017 Jumpin! Jack Flash, it's a Gas Gas Gas Two full days. Lots of swearing, some busted knuckles, and a couple of Homer Simpson "Doh!" moments and it's in - despite the rain and cold. The 34 gallon Long Range Automotive gas tank is in. And the truck still runs! I'll apologize now...
