    FS: Five Overland Journal Issues

    I've got five issues of Overland Journal that have been collecting dust on my shelf and I'd like to send them to someone who will read/appreciate them. They're in very good condition but because I did thumb through them when each issue was delivered, they're not perfect. Fall 2020 Winter 2020...

    SOLD: Garmin Montana 750i: Like New In Box

    SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD A little over a year ago I got a Garmin Montana 750i as I envisioned using it on our travels for both the GPS and InReach functionality. I took it on a couple of hikes, then stored it in the center console of my truck. I pulled it out a handful of times to use the GPS but...

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    We snuck in one more trip before winter got its frosty hands on the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado. We'd planned to spend four days and nights exploring, camping and mountain biking but with the storm rolling in sometime Saturday night we decided to pack it in and head home. Even so, we...

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    Last weekend we escaped the insanity that is Moab during peak touron season for a very quiet night at a site we'd scoped from a nearby MTB trail. The landscape around the campsite didn't offer much of anything for foreground interest but the cliffs on either side were scenic. We spent a single...

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    Honestly, glad to know I'm not the only customer they didn't give a damn about. I'm sure you and I are not unique. Those Exp One bumpers are SWEEEET. I had a front & rear on my FJ. The rear took a super hard hit coming down off Poison Spider and only had a small dent underneath, not even...

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    Yep. I was really disappointed as it really seems like the perfect solution for our rig.

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    Yes, and while we were in Oregon last year we coordinated with one of the owners of TR to visit their HQ so he could take a bunch of measurements of our truck. At the time they'd only made a bumper for the Ram. We drove over an hour out of our way to meet up with him, he took the measurements...

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    Same experience. I spoke to a shop I trust and they said the same thing. They'd be liable for anything anyone ever put into the hitch, even after I sell the rig. Never thought about that but makes sense.

    Definitely a good time. Looking forward to our next trip...whatever it may be.

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    I've got a flatbed w/ no bumper so that wasn't a concern for me BUT I'm sure they designed it to fit a rig with a bumper so..it probably won't sit any higher than factory. Hadn't considered that. D'oh!

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    A couple of weeks ago we took advantage of some time off for a quick 8 day escape to Colorado for some hiking, mountain biking and camping. We're starting to do more and more multi-sport trips, rather than focus so heavily on mountain biking. It's been fun to mix it up a little bit...

    F-350 Configuration for Truck Camper Build (NorthStar 850SC)

    I didn't use Carli springs. I had Alcan Springs in Grand Junction build a custom set of leaf springs designed specifically for my rig. I've got a flatbed Norweld tray w/ a FWC Hawk UTE on mine.

    F-350 Configuration for Truck Camper Build (NorthStar 850SC)

    100% agree. I've got a Carli Pintop on mine and the difference in ride quality on and off-road was mind blowing. The truck handles so much better on road at highway speeds that there's literally no comparison. Highway and bridge joints, and potholes or other surface defects, used to toss the...

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    It gets hot in Moab. Not Sonoran Desert hot, but hot enough to make you want to escape the heat. Luckily, we can drive 49 minutes and go from 103 degrees at 4,000' to 79 degrees in an alpine meadow at 10,700'. We did just that on Saturday and it was glorious. Campfires are a no-go due to the...
