    Discovery 1 Rooftop tent question

    I’m going to be running a rhino rack pioneer platform on my D1 for the flat utility of it. Would likely work well for a tent if you’re so inclined. From what I’ve seen most cut the side bars off the SD racks to accommodate RTTs. Which I could see if you already had one but I wouldn’t buy one if...

    HDPE vs. Full Drawer Slides

    This^ I’d use something harder for a drawer slide. I’ve used stainless on slotted birch ply soaked with fiberglass resin and it worked reasonably well for light loads.(was a map cabinet so 20 or so wide flat drawers) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fuel Cans: Scepter or Valpro?

    It’s not about paying duty on the fuel or the cans, that bit is rather cut and dry. It is illegal to IMPORT, manufacture, or sell, non-CARB compliant fuel cans(PFCs) since 2009. The law has an exemption for personal use. If you import empty, and new cans, especially large quantities of them...

    Need the solar/power pros to weigh in

    This^ is how my 75/10 has worked since day one. I set it up for my batteries charging specs, wired my panels, and about every three months I review logs and update firmware. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Fuel Cans: Scepter or Valpro?

    Bringing empty never filled cans as I understand it they can hold against you, as an attempt to import non conforming containers against EPA regs. I’ve always put fuel in mine when I buy them as I’ve been instructed that fuel containers holding fuel at the crossing are considered exempt. It’s...

    Fuel Cans: Scepter or Valpro?

    The steel ones I’ve had good luck emptying and letting air out over a few days so I can ship them easily. Once the MFCs have held fuel they smell, it doesn’t seem to go away but I still like them. :) My reserve is in a half dozen metal jerry cans, but I’ve been known to grab MFCs in Canada...

    TIRES vs MPG

    Actually the braking distance was the same on the last truck I tested. Limited by the abs on the truck rather than the tires. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What do you use for a truck gun?

    The shotgun has become my truck gun, pistol may be on my hip or in the console close at hand unless my trip includes a border crossing to CA. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Medical gear

    Totally depends on the speed and severity of the anaflactic reaction. I wouldn’t depend on it, that said someone who knows they have a strong allergic reaction potential to something such as shellfish SHOULD be carrying a personal epi-pen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Jerry can vs Rotopax for trailer

    The flange is the primary point of failure on the scepter cans. Especially if you start with .mil surplus cans that have been used hard already. I’ve yet to have issue with any bought new, but that’s not an option for some members that’s to CARB. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    FS Surplus bits from former/current builds.

    I will get a quote to ship the water jugs or the ammo boxes, shippers like ups just seem hyper wary of used fuel containers. Shipping is obviously on the buyer if they want it shipped.

    FS Surplus bits from former/current builds.

    I don’t have a cap wrench(I use a generic oil filter strap wrench) but those are easy to come by compared to MFCs in good shape. The ones you see on eBay are often marked up, where I’m just after what I have in these b/c I can replace them pretty easily if I change my mind later.

    FS Surplus bits from former/current builds.

    SOLD-I’m asking $140 for the pair. SOLD-Next I have two reliance 6 gallon/23L water storage cans. I’m asking $10 each. They are great for short term storage of extra potable water. A little light duty for rough handling but perfectly suitable for many builds. Last but not least two...
