    A Nissan Frontier and FWC Fleet Build Out

    Sorry, Just saw this. FWC was awesome, but I feel like it was a little too heavy for the Nissan. By the time we were loaded up with all of our gear, we were about 1000 lb over GVWR. I was fine with that on the highway, but not offroad. We also like to take 3 kayaks with us. The roof can...

    Sewing Thread....A discussion on making your own adventure textile gear.

    Does anyone know what these are called and/or where I can get them. I saw them at the Rocky Mountain Overland Rally, took a picture but that's it. They are grommets with snaps that you can sew on. Any help appreciated.

    I felt the FWC was too heavy for any kind of off roading. By the time we were loaded up with water, gear and bikes we were about 1000 lbs over weight. I think it would be fine for paved and gravel. We have OME heavy duty leaf springs and air bags with 50psi, both needed. The Habitat is...

    Frontier Hitch Bike Tray, Open tailgate?

    Yes, keeping both wheels on . I have an AT habitat on back, so opening the tailgate with the bikes on is imperative. The 1Up looks awesome and we do plan on doing lots of gravel travel, so I might just need to bight the bullet. I would also need the fat tire spacers, so I'm closing in on...

    Frontier Hitch Bike Tray, Open tailgate?

    Just got a few new bikes and looking for a hitch mount bike rack with trays. Anyone have any experience? Hoping to find one that I can open the tailgate with the bikes on when it tilts down. I had a swing away (Yakima Swing Daddy), but new bikes won't work on it. The tray racks with swings...

    Putting a FWC Hawk in a short-bed truck?

    A few thoughts for you: When calculating your load, don't forget people, water and stuff. You will be hard pressed to find a FWC in a 150/1500 that is not over the GVWR. The more you overhang behind the axle, the more sway you will get and weight on the rear axle vs spreading it out over...
