    So the wife would def be happy...you may find it a little small...from what I've heard the complaint most often is that your feet will brush the bottom of the clamshell. The Autohome folks may be able to chime in and offer their experience.

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    I hope to get to VOR but am reluctant to speak to soon since work ALWAYs conspires against me for that event for some reason-thus we've got it on the master calendar and are crossing our fingers. I'm surprised the flooring warped that much-that's unfortunate. I'm glad that I just went chicken...

    Apologies for coming in late, I have a small Columbus Variant on my LR3. How tall are your adults? :) I ask b/c when we were buying our tent last year the folks at Autohome noted that taller folks tend to want the XL just given the nature of the clamshell. For us, being 5'5", there is more...

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    Answers to the questions from Sunrisehiker- There is a little more noise. The prospeed essentially has no significant noise, so adding the RTT-even as sleek as it is, increased that negligible noise somewhat. It is far from adversarial, and in truth below 70 it is unnoticeable. Yes, two bars...

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    Finally at home for a weekend, which I guess is a good thing. Time for some more details to accompany the spring weather flurry to get MT's mounted and such. First, the other 19" 3U server rack drawer now has neoprene and foam in it. A nice discreet place if I want to lock up something that...

    MaxTrax, are they worth it?

    I believe ya'll are right, these are what I ordered:Fleabay Xbulls Given the opportunity, I'd like to try the 10T version-not to mention the TREDs and TRED pros.

    MaxTrax, are they worth it?

    They could be imitation xbulls I suppose...ironic in and of itself. Ordered them off eBay, cost the usual ~$85-90 you can find them for there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    MaxTrax, are they worth it?

    Not exactly hard ground, and to your point-the MTs and ATs (not to mention the fiberglass waffleboards)-haven't broken despite years of use and going through that exact same trial.

    MaxTrax, are they worth it?

    So I finally got around to not just ordering a set of Xbulls, but also finding some time to test them. Here's a visual of the findings: Thus I continue to say they probably are not a suitable substitute for anything more than automotive/expolicious jewlery. We'd planned on doing a full...

    What do you use for a truck gun?

    Took the two projects out today for some fun. Verdict: 300BLK is a good handy weapon with decent power at short range, will likely suppress it and play with the optic setup, but not much to report here other than it works. Glock mag AR pistol was the real test bunny today, several hundred...

    NAS LR3 build with an overseas twist

    Milestone passed. Immensely appropriate that it was on 66 traveling back from WV to NoVA. Given some things afoot there will likely be many more milestones passed on that stretch. She got a slightly early oil change yesterday. Today she got to do a little bit of terrain response to get to...

    Some more shots from today, we played with traction aids given the ongoing commentary in the 'maxtrax, are they worth it?' thread. Yes, that is the answer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
