    59 CJ3B vintage expo. project.

    That windshield is interesting. For a time some Jeeps with that opening h were used as a platform for a recoiless rifle

    Full sets of NA Gazetteers

    TOPO USA would be a lot cheaper and less bulky. Don’t know if it’s still sold new, but my old DVD based one works great.

    fire extinguisher recommendation requested

    The only thing mounted to the toll bar is the quick release bracket common to most extinguishers. If needed I just flip a lever and lift extinguisher from bracket to use. Fill gauge is visible when I open the tailgate. It’s out of the way.

    On board air VS Portable compressor VS Powertank/CO2

    I’ve had great luck with the pricier Smittybilt compressor. Hooks to battery. About 3 min to go from 15 to 35 lb on a 35 x 12.50 tire. Gets hot after four tired, but really works. About $150.

    Hose clamps to mount extinguisher on diagonal roll cage bar at rear of Jeep works best for my 5 lb extinguisher. Out of the way but easy to get to

    I had a Maggiolina mounted on the gutters of my 97 XJ. Did a quick release mount with RTT storage in ceiling of garage. Many on and offs over 7 years and many trips with no problems

    Bear safety in RTT's and soft sided campers/tents

    When I had a RTT I'd unhook the ladder and let it fall to the ground. Clamber down the side in the morning. No bears climbing up and no grounding in a storm. Loaded pistol or bear spray upstairs if you get a really aggressive bear.

    Anti-Sway Bars with RTT?

    Coil springs are just like a Slinky toy. Once they start to go over they keep in going. A Jeep Rubicon is a very capable off-roader. Has coil springs. Also has a sway bar disconnect, but only on the front. When I use to off-road extreme lifted Samurais one ofthe tip offs to an impending...
