    Ronny Dahl's Recovery Mat Torture Test

    I totally enjoyed the video. Talk about testing them to the limits! You've got to admit, the MaxTrax seem to be the gold standard when it comes to these recovery boards. If I were going to be overlanding for months on end, those are the ones I'd get. As it is, in reality I'm more of a...

    Resealing an ARE topper

    What is butyl tape, and where do you get it?

    Resealing an ARE topper

    I've already given my wife a heads-up I might be needing her help. Unless I don't get it done till my daughter's home for spring break, then I'll task her to help me. Yeah; don't want to drop the window and have it break.

    Identify this gun tool please

    I was putting a new toy I recently purchased into my gun cabinet, and found this tool up with the ammo on top of the gun cabinet. I cannot for the life of me remember what it is for or which gun it belongs to (an AR?). It was still in a little sealed plastic bag, so it hadn't been used on...

    Awesome. Thanks!

    How often do you disconnect?

    So I got a quick response from my email to JKS. Here's the link to the springs (combo pack of all three so you can mix & match): https://jksmfg.com/i-22327337-flex-connect-performance-springs-master-kit.html?ref=category:381021 They also sell them individually...

    How often do you disconnect?

    Seems like they would be a universal fit for any vehicle that has a swaybar with end links. And if you can fine-tune them with different rated little springs, even better. I'm sure my big truck would use different springs in the link compared to a TJ or smaller vehicle. This could be a...

    How often do you disconnect?

    I think these are the JKS links mentioned previously with the springs: https://jksmfg.com/i-24048413-tj-xj-zj-flex-connect-kit-pair.html?ref=category:381038 According to the link: The Flex Connect is customizable to meet your driving needs and compatible most lifts on the market. Along with...

    How often do you disconnect?

    Again, that's why the Curie Anti-Rock is nice (if you've got a Jeep that there's an application for it). It is like the middle road; a light (adjustable) sway bar. You're not disconnected, but you've still got movement available. I don't know what folks with IFS have as options.

    Resealing an ARE topper

    I've got an ARE fiberglass topper on my truck that I bought new in 1996. It is starting to leak around the windows. The windows are kept in place with what seems to be two-piece aluminum extruded pieces (one inside and one outside) that go all the way around the windows, with the inside piece...

    How often do you disconnect?

    It is still a sway bar; just a lighter than stock (and adjustable) sway bar. On-road it seems fine; I never really think about it when driving on pavement. It doesn't dive or anything when turning sharp.

    Besides MaxTraxx, what traction boards/mats do you use?

    If I traveled full-time like you (or had a bigger budget), I would go high(er)-end on a lot of my gear, including traction boards. If you can afford the MaxTrax you can't go wrong - they seem to be the ones everyone compares to. I know the knobs will get worn down if you spin your tires on...

    How often do you disconnect?

    Another for the Currie AntiRock. You want a little preload on the front end. https://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f27/max-flex-vs-useful-flex-anti-rock-132003/

    recommendations for a portable air compresor

    If you like the Air Armor M240 compressor but are looking for a way to mount it, SWAG Off-Road makes a nice aluminum bracket you can use to mount the ammo can (inside or outside of your vehicle, on your trailer, etc.). It also makes it lockable. SWAG makes other good stuff too; I have their...

    recommendations for a portable air compresor

    I've been using this Air Armor M240 for a few years, and have been happy with it. Only 33% duty cycle, but it is more than enough for me and my 33" tires. I'm never the last one to fill back up. It comes in an ammo can, so it is easily transportable between vehicles. Costs about $130.00...
