    What Radio to Buy? Some tips to make a good decision

    Fyi, GMRS does not require any licensing in Canada but it's limited to 2 Watt. Also, the upper GMRS channels that in US are used for repeaters are not allocated in Canada so their usage is not allowed at all. So only the first 15 channels are useable at 2W.

    Captain Texas Anvil JKU build

    But those bolts are not welded. Why would they welt one in? I suggest get a new bolt from parts and replace the stripped one.

    Captain Texas Anvil JKU build

    Ah, gotcha! I believe it's 80lbs on big ones and 40 on the small ones. I'd put a drop of blue loctite on all.

    What body bolts are you referring to? Did you put a body lift in, or what?

    Off Grid Trailers aluminum build.

    So people are seeing your work. Great job! But the girl driving the jeep was either uncomfortable or annoyed to drive in that 6km/h 5pm crap traffic. :)

    Off Grid Trailers aluminum build.

    Saw these guys with Alberta plated two weeks ago on Don Valley Parkway in Toronto. The trailers looked fabulous! I kinda wanted to flag them down and ask about the trailers but it was rush hour which sucks around here. Extraordinary builds! I could drive around one of these any time and anywhere :)

    Bear safety in RTT's and soft sided campers/tents

    I still don't see how an RTT offers protection from large animals? What would stop a bear/lion/jaguar to just climb on the hood then on the roof to get to the RTT?..

    Uniden Bearcat 980 SSB CB Radio - Thoughts?

    http://www.cbradiomagazine.com/Uniden%20Bearcat%20980%20SSB%20CB%20Radio.html Compare the 1st and the 8th fotos... It seems that all the Uniden marketing material (including pictures) shows the black knob, whereas the real product has the double silver one. Marketing morons....

    JKU Storage Build Out

    Looking forward to your storage ideas. I am usually looking for less permanent solutions as my storage needs change with the kind of trip we take (ie. long distance travel vs. camping, etc). Here's how we rolled (2 adults and 1 child) for a 24 days/8500km trip a couple of years ago. I had the...

    Tent big enough to fit family of 5?

    I agree but it's worth a bit of work for the comfort this setup provides. I mean, look how well your daughter (I assume) sleeps in your pic. :)

    Tent big enough to fit family of 5?

    +1 for Kodiak Canvas 10x14. Bought mine from Bass Pro. I use disc-o-beds for comfort and space saving inside the tent.
