    Advice on purchasing a truck shell?

    i just picked up an ATC Colorado for my 15 GMC 1/2 ton. it has a honeycomb reinforced roof and only hit me for about 1400. Adding rails will not void the warrenty. I looked and and loved the frame in the ARE but it was about 3x the price. We only plan on putting a box for skiis on the roof...

    We had ~ 10 350 srws at aprox the same weight. i was driving 175 miles per day with over half of it on graded gravel. most of the other trucks were doing a bit less. round numbers: 1 per 5k miles on dirt would be 1 per week. that would be in the ballpark anyway. roads full of 1 to 2 in...

    f 350 13k lbs. i found the Revo2 much more resistant to sidewall issues than the bfg's. So much so, that we switched to them on our fleet in Wyoming. Lots of gravel and rocky road travel. We were changing about 1 a week of the bfgs and went to less than 1 a month with the Revo2. The BFGs...

    MaxTrax, are they worth it?

    those appear to be exact copies of the original tred ramps. I try to avoid giving money to counter fitters. There are about 5 counterfits of these products for ever legit one on amazon right now. i have called out several of them that even use the pictures and description from maxtrax or tred...

    1987 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Fully custom 4 Linked w/ Coilovers + more!

    I KNOW you have more than that into it, having it built. I hope my 73 is like this when its done. what kind of mileage do you get? with all that work, I think I would have found a way for O/D. GLWS.

    Let’s talk luggage

    If you go to Vietnam you can get northfake duffles cheap. I have one I bought there to bring home some our finds and to see how it holds up to my real one. I had to replace the horrible zipper pulls, but other than that it is great. My real one shows some wear, but it was my go to for...

    Towing with U-HAUL Auto Transporter

    I bought a used 16 foot flat deck for less than 2k, U-haul wanted 1500 for a one way from Wyoming to Michigan. The trailer has been used about 15 times in the last few years for different things. Try penske or some other rental place, they often have more normal trailers with proper equipment.
