    T-100 head gasket

    I have the opportunity to pick up a T-100, but it needs a head gasket. I’ve owned one before and foolishly solid it. Should I run away from it or make a project of it? Thanks

    Suburban/Tahoe(and GMC) pic/build thread

    I spent almost 4 hours this weekend unsuccessfully searching for a photo of my 1976 Suburban. A bit of a rough ride but it never got stuck.

    Why are other full size SUV's not used in overlanding/offroading as often as Forerunner/Landcruiser?

    Yes, I read all 17 pages.....and thanks forall those interesting opinions. Here’s mine- I own both Fords and Toyotas and they’re both good, but different. I like driving my 96’ LC and I love my 19’ F-150. I think there are just as many domestic trucks used for “overlanding” as there are...

    East African chicken

    5 or 6 years ago there was a recipe posted in the Overland Journal magazine. I made it a number of times and it was great. I lost the magazine and was wondering if anyone had the recipe. Thanks

    She’ll recommendation -2019 F150

    The last shell I bought was in 1985 and it served as a platform to carry a John boat and a place to camp in when needed. I just bought a new Ford with the 6’5” bed and I’d like to add a cap that can carry 2 or 3 kayaks. I’m looking for recommendations. Thanks.

    F150 vs Tundra....I’ll make a decision tomorrow

    Sorry for taking so long to get back to this question. I ended up with the F150, 3.5 TwinTurbo with the 6.5’ bed. New wheels and tires are next.

    F150 vs Tundra....I’ll make a decision tomorrow

    Well, it's embarrassing to say but after driving all of them, even a F250, I was unable to make a decision. I was impressed with the F150 in the 3.5 motor however I'm not sure about those TwinTurbo's. We walked away without buying Anything I thought my wife was going to scream as I think I...

    F150 vs Tundra....I’ll make a decision tomorrow

    I’ve read all the threads on this most controversial question and I’ve got to make a decision. My current ride, a 2003 F150 with 216,000 miles, needs to be replaced or face substantial repairs. I’m better with a hammer than a wrench and I’m afraid the ROI for the repairs isn’t a good idea...

    Is there a bad year for the 4 runner

    Thanks for all the info. The goal of the project is light over landing with trips lasting no more than a few days. Mostly solo travel, relatively easy off road with the occasional “I wonder what’s down that trail” mixed in. I made an offer on a 2007, however the owner hasn’t agreed to the...

    Is there a bad year for the 4 runner

    I’m looking for a project truck and was wondering if there was a year to avoid for 4 runners. I have a 2015, but that’s the wife’s commuter and not going to be something I take off road. Thanks.

    15' Silverado build

    Great photos and excellent info. I'm way behind you as I can't make up my mind on what truck I need for overlanding. I'm certainly interested in the Chevy.

    Trek 920

    The rack was a no name brand from a discount store. A true $99 lapse in judgement.

    Trek 920

    Just purchased the new Trek 920. This bike is fantastic, but there's a story with this specific bike. I bought the bike at a LBS and was taking home when it fell off the bike rack. I watched in horror as it bounced off the road while doing 55mph. Luckily the bouncing bike didn't hit a car or...

    Looking at Suzuki V-Strom 650

    I'm curious to know as well. I'm coming up on my one year anniversary with a DRZ400 and I'm thinking about getting something a bit more road worthy.

    80 series LC vs Suburban

    I picked up the LC as a result of doing much research on the off road abilties, however the reality turns out I need more room and not a solid front axel. The off road/adventure stuff is all new to me, and I'm still trying to figure out where I fit in. Carrying people, stuff and dogs turns out...

    80 series LC vs Suburban

    I've got a totally stock 1996 LC with 135000 on the clock. It needs some repairs, but overall in good shape. I;ve thoughtt about selling it and getting a Suburan 4X4 as I don't do any thing past dirt roads. It's a tough decision and I'm not sure what to do. I've never owned a Suburban

    FJ vs Tacoma

    Thanks for the all the advice, especially those that suggest I buy one of each. That's probably not going to happen though. I'll post a picture when the purchase is made. Thank again.
