    SOLD Used James Baroud Evasion Evo

    Here are a couple of closeups of the rack. It's made from 1/8"x4" aluminum angle with 2" aluminum tubing. Cutouts in the lower panels are for the Nissan Titan tiedowns. Put the tiedowns through the holes and tighten them down and the rack is secured.

    James Baroud lifting arm adjustment

    So now that I have the tent to the point where it's easier to close I've decided to sell it. After several nights of climbing down to use the bathroom in pitch darkness I think we've decided to look for a different sleeping arrangement. If you're looking for a used JB check out the...

    SOLD Used James Baroud Evasion Evo

    Like the title says, used James Baroud Evo. I purchased this tent used last year. The gas struts were extremely stiff (perfect working order just very strong) as they are 100lb struts. I have MS and found them too difficult to close alone so swapped them out for 70lb struts and found them...

    C6500 TopKick Law Enforcement Vehicle Conversion - Kinda Campulance

    In regards to your generator, most diesel these days has a percentage of biodiesel in it. It tends to grow algae better than older diesel and will clog up fuel lines to the point they are impassable. Your best bet might be to pull the fuel tank and all the lines and clean them thoroughly (also...

    James Baroud lifting arm adjustment

    So I was able to swap out the lifting struts. The original JB struts are approximately 100lb struts. I switched them for 70lb replacements from McMaster-Carr and they work great. Much easier to collapse. They don’t come down quite as straight as the originals so I have manhandle it a little to...

    2008 M116A1 Trailer and a one-time trip with a Four Wheel Camper [Sanity Check]

    Tractor Supply, Northern Tool, or WalMart should have the magnetic lights.

    2008 M116A1 Trailer and a one-time trip with a Four Wheel Camper [Sanity Check]

    You’ll need to unbolt the toolbox and Gerry can holders. A set of magnetic trailer lights work great and you don’t have to worry about zip tying them (and they’re fairly cheap). The 116 should tow great just check the hub grease before heading out as that usually overlooked.

    Sad End to This Cautionary Tale, As Folks Start to Head Back Out Into the Wilds, Pls Be Careful

    We also have no idea what kind of map he had. If they were basing their travels on the NP map picked up at the ranger station it wouldn't have shown much of anything other than point A and point B and where the roads were.

    I doubt an unmounted spare would have helped them. If they didn't have a patch kit I doubt they had any way to air a tire up even if they fixed it.

    Sad End to This Cautionary Tale, As Folks Start to Head Back Out Into the Wilds, Pls Be Careful

    I found a follow up story on Yahoo News that said the couple was on a "campus trip to Dead Valley National Park." You can imagine that the rest of the story was useless as well.

    four wheel camper hawk for sale on 2010 ram 2500 6sp manual crew cummins 4x4

    I think a lot folks think "suspect" when someone signs up to the site simply to post a For Sale ad with nothing but pics. It's a lot easier to trust someone when they've been here contributing to the group for a while. Not criticizing just pointing out why it was brought up. And why should...

    Sad End to This Cautionary Tale, As Folks Start to Head Back Out Into the Wilds, Pls Be Careful

    +10 for having an inReach or similar. At this point in my life the Mrs won't let me do single vehicle trips so always have a backup vehicle but if both happen to crap out for some reason the thought is the inReach can get me out of a mess. It helped on a group trip on the ID BDR when we were...
