    Ride the Himalaya's tour.

    My cousin returned last week from his two week adventure around Ley. He really enjoyed the Royal Enfield Himalaya he road for most of the trip, not so much the Bullet for the last stages. Couple pics:

    Introducing Miss Rubi, a 2012 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited

    LongbowMick, I wouldn't consider anything older than a '13 - the older V6 was anemic at best, and the early '12 model w/ 3.6L had head problems. The 3.6L and 4.10 gears has plenty of power for the four door.

    Introducing Miss Rubi, a 2012 Jeep Rubicon Unlimited

    Update: 85000 miles on Miss Rubi now - hard to believe it... For the most part, the Jeep has been my wife's daily driver, but it does get some good trail time, especially now that we've sold the Power Wagon. Good Ol' Cactus Red took the majority of the beatings off road for the last few years...

    Well, Cactus Red has sold. One of my neighbors son's owns my old '98 Taco, and now the father will be driving the PW. Gonna be kinda strange to have them both close at hand... Yeah, it doesn't even know it's back there. Set the cruise control at the speed limit, sit back and let the truck and...

    Well, this is it for Cactus Red. It's time to move on - we have decided to sell the Power Wagon. It's been an awesome truck, but the new trailer taxed it heavily on our summer trip to Glacier NP. It did the job, but with a loaded 8500 Lb trailer we averaged less than 6 MPG. Seems like every...

    We had a very bad experience towing with the Cooper ST Maxx 285/70-17 tires. The exhibited some extreme tread squirm under load, and have been replaced with Toyo AT2's. They performed very well this last weekend in similar high winds. The trailer tows exceptionally well on dirt - we stayed at...

    No radiator cooler, just two external. Also added an AFE diff cover to help keep that oil cooler as well. Yeah, previous tires have been 315's. Truck looks dorky on stockers, but it shifted the power band into a more usable range of speed. Had the new rig up near Perkins Tank in Feb - it did...

    We're towing heavy these days. Recently got an Outdoors RV 24KTS. Dry weight is 6900, add in 90 gallons of water our "stuff" as it were, and it's about 8500 lbs. So it was time for tires anyway (got 30K on the ST Pro's - excellent tire by the way), so the truck is back to stock 285/70-17 using...

    CASNER MOUNTAIN TRAIL #8

    Mikey, Bummer - sorry for the confusion. The main hill is as rocky as ever, and the midway climb is loose as well. A standard dirt bike should be fine, a heavy 650CC or larger adventure bike would roast a tire. Looks like the area had a good monsoon season - it's a bit rougher than I remember...

    It's real handy for redirected pulls. With trees down across a road, I can usually pull it 90 degrees from the road to get it completely out of the way, and still keep the line straight coming into the winch. Socialism: A stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and...

    Figured I'd show my current recovery gear. It's a process - a piece here, a piece there, and with two winch equipped vehicles (JKUR has an 8K on it), duplicating the kits isn't easy or cheap either. The JKUR has roughly 3/4 of the items in the truck. When we do snow runs, I throw the JK bag in...

    80' of new 7/16 Fire line AP from Winchline.com is now wrapped on the drum. It's as strong as Amsteel, but has three times more resistance to heat - a whopping 900 deg melting point.

    Still trying to get the lockers working... They are replacing the wiring harness starting tomorrow. Got a long bed quad cab '16 4X4 CTD as a loner. Gotta be as long as the Ark... Power, power, power tho. Gobs of power. The PW is much quicker off the line - 4.56 gears do that. But once the...

    Didn't take too many photos of that trip - just a couple scenery and one when we started dragging diffs about half way up FR 354 to Pine Flat on the Great Western Trail We were still in the cedars, and stopped just about the time we reached the pines. Turned around in knee deep snow at a spot I...
