    Cinder Hills OHV Flagstaff Arizona

    We'd be glad to send anyone a small bag of cinders, to use as you see fit. Sort of like a virtual trip to Cinder Hills, no?

    This might be a handy vehicle for an RV base if it was a bit shorter. I know someone who's had one of these ex-military F-800s for years now, and he really likes it (especially since he paid like $10K for an almost-new truck).

    General gripe

    5.11 products are reasonably priced and pretty well-made (assuming you don't mind looking like you're on a SWAT team).

    1967 Alaskan Camper

    I just purchased a 1967 Alaskan 10-foot non-cabover camper for my 1.5 ton 4x4 flatbed truck. I've wanted one of these for years, but they're very hard to get unless you buy a new one. This Alaskan is in great shape, both the interior (maple) and the outside aluminum. Many of the vintage ones...

    *** VAN HAS BEEN RECOVERED*** 4x4 Van STOLEN in Portland OR June 4th

    I didn't know Nicholas Cage had a brother. Another _mike is of course correct that doing something is better than doing nothing. Personally, I always keep a few of my pet wolverines in my overland truck, and I've never had anyone attempt to steal it. Well, not anyone that I could find the...

    Kitanica pants review

    After wearing these for a couple weeks, I find them to be comfortable and the material well-made. I've used the front and side pockets (the Raider pants have about 30 pockets) and they seem fine. I haven't put anything in the back pockets. I keep a bunch of nitrile gloves in one pocket, Narcan...

    *** VAN HAS BEEN RECOVERED*** 4x4 Van STOLEN in Portland OR June 4th

    If someone really wants to steal a vehicle, they'll use a tow truck or flatbed with a winch to do so. So while a kill switch is a good idea, it's not always effective. And there are ways - never mind what they are - to disable tracking devices. Professional car thieves who specialize in Bentleys...

    Kitanica pants review

    Just got a pair of Kitanica Raider pants (they've changed the knee material, so these were about $75 cheaper than usual). Very well constructed, made in US, lots of huge pockets in what seem to be the right places, very nice fit and finish. These may be a bit over-the-top for daily...

    Thinking about dropping the hi-lift

    Never used a hi-Lift for tire-changing, etc, but have twice used them for extricating someone from a damaged/rolled vehicle when a regular rescue tool (Hurst or Lucas, etc) was not available.

    1994 GMC 3500HD 4x4 Braun Northwest Rescue Fire Truck $25k

    I think this chassis - based on my experience - is just as capable as an F-550/5500 setup. Mine came with a 6.5 GM, which was replaced by the (built) 12-valve Cummins. Not an easy transplant - I'm still having issues with a few things - but it's a huge improvement. GVW on mine is 15,000, so you...

    Show Hauler 4x4 $320k

    The 4x4 Freightliner chassis (which I believe is called a P4) is very stout and capable offroad and on. The only concerns I would have about this vehicle is the length of the wheelbase, and the durability of the slideout when exposed to lots of vibration.
