    FJ60 roof rack clamps

    I’m building a roof rack for my FJ60 but I’m stuck on finding a suitable drip rail clamp, hopefully one that holds right but does not damage the stainless steel trim. Any suggestions?

    GovPlanet 5 ton trucks

    LMTV Bought a LMTV from GovPlanet a couple months ago, sight un-seen flew to Texas and picked it up. Oh and it did not have a spare tire. We thought it would be a good idea to keep a rental car and follow the LMTV the 1800 miles to home. After the first 100 miles it became apparent that we no...

    Camper wall siding

    Wow that looks nice, I'm guessing the aluminum angle is welded together. I'm ok with that although I'd rather TIG steel. I'll look into the panels too. I like the idea of having metal corners for brush and limb protection, no inner frame...

    Camper wall siding

    Great Ideas, I'm not sure I would want someone else to cut the entire wall set out. I would have to have all the doors and windows pre-hand. I will contact them regarding panels, A US mfg would be closer however. Unfortunately I live in Kalifornia where no one is allowed to make or build...
