    Dogs traveling in camper?

    I wouldn't let my dog ride in my camper. Besides he's much happier sticking his head out the window.

    Best way to power a Four Wheel Camper?

    Definitely go with solar. Mounting is relatively simple. While I can charge from the truck I never need to.

    XPCamper goes out of business, files for bankruptcy?

    I remember when he brought the first prototype to a WTW gathering on Green Creek. How excited he was. Sad to this this day come.

    First-Aid situations you've encountered in the backcountry

    Hape is pretty scary. They say it can happen even to your group leader, the guy you'd least expect. Training and least a small trauma kit. On a Jeep run the Jeep behind me rolled five times. No one (except me) had anything other band aids. Luckily other than a bump on his head he was uninjured...

    FWC Worth It? Insight Appreciated!

    Depends on what you mean by off grid. I don't think a Palomino would survive what I do but if you never engage 4wd it may do just fine for you.

    Thinking about dropping the hi-lift

    Change a tire with a hi lift? Sure, why not? Crawl underneath with a high lift supporting the vehicle? Now thats a no no. Still you have weigh all the factors. Repair while supported with a hi lift or walk thirty miles through the desert for help.

    Diesel for overlanding- are you happy with the choice?

    Not sure where people get those repair numbers. 150k on my cummins and 0 repairs done. I like my diesel but would I buy one now? Probably not. Gassers have come a long ways.

    fire extinguisher recommendation requested

    When I was was with CDF, they made us dump the powder through a screen. Don't think it was necessary but that was the procedure. I was minutes behind a traffic collision where a guy got rear ended and his car burst into flames. A couple local businessmen used their 2A10BC extinguishers...

    Thinking about dropping the hi-lift

    The safe jack is great, however. Guy in front of me got high centered on a rock, in the middle of a river crossing. Unless you bring your snorkel the bottle jack might not work so well. The hi lift well in this case. I've also used my hilift in the snow. Would have taken a lot of shoveling to...

    Open Differentials vs. Traction Control vs. Lockers

    Agree completely. In my Jeep the detroit frequently means I don't need to lock in the hubs. Finally got a limited slip installed in the truck.

    Project Flift, a 1986 Four Wheel Campers Fleet shortening documentation thread!

    You and others who have rebuilt the lift panels have convinced me I'll just drive over to ATC and have them do it. If it ever needs doing. Did you ever actually camp in it?
