    Team Equipt is in Baja!

    You guys crack me up! What I was trying to express has absolutely NOTHING to do with Baja! In reality I encourage people to go explore Baja. My only claim to Baja is my 5 hectaries that I paid dearly for (from a Mexican family that I'm close friends with). I don't like the big developers or the...

I'm am a blue eye'd, silver haired gringo of Swiss desent...About as non-latino as non-latino can be!...That is except for my Alma & Corozon:sombrero: I believe it is about stewardship and wisdom ESPECIALLY when it comes to people that have as much cyber "presents" in the adventure world...

    Team Equipt is in Baja!

    I guess this shows that I'm a little long in the tooth! I've travelled by the legendary Baja Almanac for years (the rare big one) and the last time I was in Agua Verde (2004) there was only one road in and out and after the heavy rains it was FRICKEN scarey in Casa Azul. I heard stories about...

    Team Equipt is in Baja!

    Harald, I don't disagee you...But I believe there is such a thing as TOO MUCH SHARING! My opinion (and your know what opinions are like ;o)...Is that "spouting" about special places in Baja on the internet is a NO NO. And the people that do it usually are just trying to prove to the cyber...

    ***Moderators, please delete this post if you think that I am "pooping" in this thread**** BUT SERIOUSLY GUYS... What benefit are you expecting to get from "chirping" about the back way into Agua Verde???? Our any other "back way", "secret canyon", "hidden point break", or the "camp spot to...

    S&S M1078 LMTV on Government Liquidation

    Funny you shoud bring up the "Bad Boy" truck... The "bad boyz" that bought that truck and a 6x6 from S&S were actually BAD BOYS and pulled one over on S&S (as to what they were planning to do with the trucks)...And left such a paste in S&S's mouth, they refused to sell any more to the public. A...

    S&S M1078 LMTV on Government Liquidation

    My guess is there is something profoundly wrong with it. Otherwise it would have not made it onto "Gov. slimeballs". I believe there is a current re-manufacture program for LMTV's going on, so if its not going back for re-work...there must be wopper of a problem with it (Besides the Allison...

    Why don't you email me the "perfect" dimensions and the aprox height off the ground, I'll model up set and we'll see if it can work. I think the I'll probably first offer them in aluminum (extrusions & billet),less bulky, lighter & more trick.

    C5500 TopKick 4x4 Crew Cab Build

    I dont think it is a huge stretch to imagine the stairs in any number of configurations. A person could even accommodate the stair slide within the floor joices of the box if the were building the box from scratch. I like EGN's setup but think I rather make the stairs side out the side and then...

    C5500 TopKick 4x4 Crew Cab Build

    This is the "semi-custom" configuration I am now offering (I figure each truck builder is going to want different lengths, treads, etc.). Not the "sexiest" photos, but they have gotten years of testing.
