    Inverter/Solar/Deep-cycle set up for E Bikes

    Hi guys, can anyone give me some advice? My SoCal Tear drop has two linked Diehard deep-cycle batteries, solar controller and guest charge pro, using x2 78w Flexopower panels for a total 158w (max 19.2v) to top up batteries. I'm no electrician, to be honest it baffles me, I have 3 Bosch 500w...

    Good things come in little packages: Yamaha TW200

    As the owner of a XTZ1200 Super Tenere, and recently, a TW200 (aka TDub) I'm lucky enough to have the best of both worlds, the big bruiser and the mighty midget. While I have taken the XT1200 off road a few times I'm no Dakar super hero, I don't find it fun wrestling over 700lbs of motorcycle...

    The cost of Land Rover Defenders

    I'm an English transplant to California and the cost of Land Rovers here in the States, especially the coveted Defender, never ceases to amaze me. I've seen high mileage older models in less than average condition selling for ridiculous sums of money, $40k, $50k even $65k+. I know they have to...

    Natural vs. synthetic

    I'm interested in opinions on build materials used for storage and equipment used in camping and over landing. So much stuff is made of plastic today and my camping gear is no exception. But when is leather better than vinyl? Or wood better than plastic? Modern polymers and plastics certainly...

    Is there such a thing as extra cheap(ish) FJC horsepower

    Apart from dropping serious coin on a TRD supercharger (drool) does anyone know the best way to get a few more useable cheap ponies out of the FJC V6? I have the TRD exhaust installed already but will the TRD cold air filter give me more BHP? Better plugs maybe? A buddy of mine bought a $40.00...

    Fantasy XPCamper

    I'm bored tonight and fancy a little Frankenstein Photoshop fun. How about taking a 2011 F250 with an 8" lift and hardcore off road suspension set up and throw a custom XPCamper shell on the back? I think this rig could actually be built for real! It's a hack but you get the idea.:smiley_drive: :)

    Looking for tough, what do you use?

    What do you use to protect or cover the parts of your trailer that take the biggest beatings? At the moment I use paint on bedliner for the frame and fronts of the side boxes on my AT Horizon. The paint on liner is ugly as hell but seems to shrug off stones and rocks. I prefer the look of...

    I did a quick thread search but could not find any info. Has anyone had experience with this solar power gear? I saw them on the Overland Expo video round up and checked out the website.
