    An RTT mounted on top of camper shell with crawl thru entry from inside shell?

    Wow, that KiraVan is amazing! It says it has everything, but I did discover something it doesn’t have. While it has an array of imaging, detecting, range finding and other surveillance systems, it lacks a passive holographic stealth system to make it look like a giant boulder if any...

    An RTT mounted on top of camper shell with crawl thru entry from inside shell?

    This was exactly what I looked for last year and couldn’t find anything other than DIY. So, I am biting the bullet and planning a DIY pop top. My other concern was having the hatch and still having enough sleeping area. My wife and I are both over 6 feet tall and would prefer a queen size bed. I...

    2001 Suburban Pop Top Conversion

    And don’t go take a leak without removing your gloves first! A tidbit of information I wish I didn’t possess... I like the epoxy West Sytems best. You can get a thickener for it that will allow you to build up the sides without it pooling on the bottom of the mold. Also, it is far superior for...

    Expedition Vehicles: ridiculously overpriced or not

    Nothing is overpriced if it continues to sell. Capitalism is driven by supply and demand. This is why the market leaders are often those first in and the laggers suffer UNLESS they find an advantage, significant innovation, price reduction, etc. So, no they are not overpriced and if they were...

    People think pulleys increase pulling power.

    I used to be able to run half the engine. The 2012 Camaro engine I put in my 1988Defender had DOD that would shutdown up to 4 of the 8 cylinders. I disabled it in the ecu once in the LR.

    Any shop making a Custom Snorkel?

    Summit Racing (among others) sells all the stainless bends you would need. They are mandrel bends (meaning there is no reduction in diameter at the bend). They are listed under exhaust tubing and are cheaper than you will find almost anywhere else. You can buy flexible ducting from Mcmaster Carr...

    Gustavo The 4x4 School Bus

    Well done! Nothing better than taking the short bus to camp. I think you are going to end up with a badass camper.

    Whoever posted the Jeep and tape measure, you missed a measurement. There is two feet of CABLE movement at the pulley.

    Advice for soon to be father...

    Run... Okay, I have four 32, 30, 27, 19. Your child will be a digital native, meaning they will have access to digital technology from the time they first open their eyes until they close them for the final time. I fact, they will have technology augmentation in the form of implanted devices...
