    Anyone having issues with KO2's?

    Just to add more 1st hand experience, I have ran several KOs, and the last set was a KO2. I've experience zero issues for their entire tread life. Balanced easily. Seemed flat. Did not induce DW, and no punctures.

    Project M: Four Wheel Campers

    Looks like Four Wheel Campers is coming out with a new model called the Project M. This makes sense since the market is moving towards lightweight shells that allow users to customize as needed. https://fourwheelcampers.com/model/project-m/ General thoughts from the group? How will this fair...

    Roof Top Tent Advice

    I ended up going with a hard shell. Speed of setup and packing were the main goals. Rarely am I in the same camp spot two nights in a row. I have a full thread on the install and my experience so far. https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/automhome-columbus-variant-review.206123/

    Automhome Columbus Variant - Review

    Now on to general impression and 1st night's sleep. First Autohome customer service. After meeting Mike S, Frenchie, and the rest of the team at Overland Expo, I was sure it would be a great experience, but working with Andrew for the whole procurement, shipment, and general idea sounding...

    Automhome Columbus Variant - Review

    Since, it is fully secure, it is time for some glamour shots. Sadly, bad weather was moving in, but at least these show how well the tent sits inside the Garvin rack and the overall integration on the jeep.

    Automhome Columbus Variant - Review

    Once installed, here is what it looks like. (ignore the huge carriage bolt in the foreground, that is what holds the Cross Bars to the outside edge of the rack.) Here is a cross shot showing some of them installed (not tightened yet). As you can see it really cleans up the underside.
