    I'm not sure it's an expedition without a campfire, but you can make fun of my Montero anyway

    First one uploaded - I'm aiming to finish the rest of them one week apart at this point. Bottom line is my brother in law and I took a little trip from the Mexican border to the Canadian one along a single highway to confirm our suspicion that it's freakin rad. Verdict: did not suck. Hope...

    Night time ventilation

    I just bought a pair of these things. They work pretty well, also ordered a little zipper bag to stuff 'em in.

    Cream of the Cra.... inexpensive TIRES! Let's get this on the table.

    There might be a reason that Continental AG brands are competitive on that website. :ROFLMAO:

    Exploring Options for an Expedition Vehicle for Global Travel

    I haven't been off continent (HI doesn't really count) but for covering the overwhelming majority of the 3 North American countries if I was going to try to fulltime it I'd be trying to stay as light and maintenance free as possible.. like to the point of looking at figuring out 20mm of lift...

    What do you think about this non-street legal India “Jeep”?

    Nugent. They have some sort of deal with each other. I can't be party to that sort of rubbish.

    What do you think about this non-street legal India “Jeep”?

    I thought they were cool until I saw who's endorsing them/has a package named after him. No thanks, Mahindra. I can't support that kind of person (not talking about 2A stuff, I mean the other stuff)

    Cream of the Cra.... inexpensive TIRES! Let's get this on the table.

    Are Generals really "cheap" tires though? They're not only a prominent Continental AG brand, they're also Continental's clear off-road brand (because Continental doesn't make a mud tire or high-void AT under their flagship marque) Maybe prices are different in different parts of the...

    Cooper ST Maxx

    I couldn't think of a time when, for my application, the STMaxx offered an advantage over other premium LT rated all-terrain tires I've used. I'd possibly consider them for a vehicle being used in an agricultural or survey context or perhaps a developing nation where half or more of their total...

    Cooper ST Maxx

    They are M+S rated but don't seem to have any specific declarations about "severe" snow. To me they performed well in snow and ice even in 2wd. But they're also pretty noisy for a not-quite-mud tire. I didn't choose to go with the same tire again when those reached the end of their life.

    Valance panels?

    I don't have a F150 but I do have one vehicle which gets noticeably better fuel efficiency (and throttle response) on 91 or 93 compared to 87 in my local climate - and another vehicle which doesn't care either way. In the case of my '15 Ram (5.7l) the engine has fairly modern management with...

    Cream of the Cra.... inexpensive TIRES! Let's get this on the table.

    This is sort of what I'm trying to get to the bottom of here in this thread; it's objectively true that the aforementioned tires are lower in market price. That much is easy enough to ascertain conclusively. What we don't know is whether they're actually inferior in any way. It's easy to...

    The old 1999 build thread

    I know how you can get 2-3" extra clearance for your oil pan/truss/arms to clear, but you're not gonna like it :ROFLMAO:

    Front axle and transfer case fluids

    For the transfer case: if you still have a red ball shifter and it's all sloppy, replace that first and flush down the top "landing" area below the fulcrum, that way you can change the transfer case oil once and be done for a long, long time. Also be sure to use GL4 and not GL5 (yes it...

    1/2 ton decisions

    I don't know about Fords, on my Ram it came without the factory skidplate package (one under transfer case, two under front axle area... incidentally the transfer case one and the front diff one are the same metal stamping just different brackets, smart) . So this might or might not be...

    Cream of the Cra.... inexpensive TIRES! Let's get this on the table.

    I wonder if that's regional? I never see Mastercraft except online for 30% less than "premium" brands or on Craigslist/offerup/etc from llanterias who also deal in Atturo and Lexani and other names from the list up there.

    Cream of the Cra.... inexpensive TIRES! Let's get this on the table.

    Let's talk about all those other tires, the ones that don't have our favorite familiar brand names on 'em. For the sake of consistency let's keep it focused around All-Terrains since that's likely the bulk of what goes on expedition travel type vehicles & trailers. There are dozens of...

    Custom Front Seats for Gen 2 Montero

    Might as well just enjoy your nice seats! I've been using very basic universal seat covers on mine, it's not difficult to cut them to allow the arm rests to go "through" and then use hammer-in snaps like this to reclose the cover below the arm rest where you cut it.
