    Spotted FS in Montana 97 F-350 7.3 4wd rescue truck 30k miles/ $20,000

    I spotted a craigslist ad for a pristine potential expedition camper, for sale in north Montana. NOT my ad. I bet the “only 30,000” were hard miles. I would want to see some regular and complete service records, for sure. It has single rear wheels, yay! From the appearance and glossy paint, I...

    This is probably a little off topic, but I hope I can get some suggestions. You folks are experienced with dust.... I have an Oliver Legacy Elite II travel trailer that I take on dusty dirt roads. It has a conventional RV refrigerator and the coil compartment is getting heavily loaded with...

    1992 Toyota Land Cruiser 195k - $5900 (Spokane WA)

    One owner, full service history since new, leather Corbeau bucket seats. Yummy. It is local to me if somebody wanted me to be a set of eyes for you.... I do know the later 80 _very_ well, but I am a little less familiar with this '92 version. Except that it is even more of a slug than my '96...

    1995 Land Cruiser with lift, bumper, V8 conversion $18k Twin Falls ID

    https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/m-Freedom-Auto-Finders-sp341680#listing=171200708 Looks pretty nice outside and in. Underneath, not so much. It looks like an unfinished project to me. The exhaust system is scruffy as hell, there are leaks and the torque converter is completely unprotected. The...

    Where to buy a Treg Poly Block coupler, Max questions

    Is there any dealer carrying Treg couplers here? Has anyone ordered from Oz and how much did the shipping cost? I have a 13 year old unit on my utility trailer and while it is getting worn, it is still perfectly functional, quiet, very easy to hook up and generally a great piece of equipment...

    Fabricating a powered dust filtration system?

    Please send me to a thread if this has been discussed. I am going to be buying an Oliver travel trailer and will have _abundant_ solar and battery power. I was wondering if there are plug and play powered dust filters available to pressurize the cabin (minimizing dust infiltration) while...

    Any US source for Stone Stomper or similar fabric gravel guard?

    Really big pic, click the link: https://dimcfarlane369.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/20150513_095031.jpg http://www.stonestomper.com.au I've decided to order an Oliver Legacy Elite II and I don't think my "old school" Rock Tamer mudflaps are going to stop the carnage. They seem to be only...

    These are way cool and the single axle 18'6" model starts at US$45K and the tandem 23'5" one is US$48.5K That is a ton of cash for a little bitty pod but they are beautifully crafted, have amazingly ingenious design, and very well specced out. http://olivertraveltrailers.com Has anyone...

    School me about Pelican cases - the different generations

    I scored a couple of Pelican 1650 cases, one brand new and one experienced (two tours in Iraq) for $100 cash plus about $150 worth of reloading components that I didn't need any more. Here's the thing: I thought they were identical, but it turns out that they are different generations. Old one...

    School me about the latest brake controllers for off-road....

    I would appreciate some recommendations for a brake controller for my '06 Ram 3500. I have a Jordan Ultima 2020 on my LX450 that is _wonderful_, but it's a long extinct product. And I am sure it's getting tired after 12 years, since it has a bike-type actuating cable and a rheostat inside that...

    Nissan NV 4x4?

    I've been reading about Quigley's new NV 4wd conversions and they sound interesting. Cost is US$10,895. What I would like to see is a Sportsmobile version of the van with six inch lift, two speed transfer case (the Quigley is single speed), 35 inch tires and off-road goodies..... and the new 5.0...

    Still waiting to hear how the Duonic works off pavement.....

    It has been a few years since Mitsubishi switched to the new system, and I still haven't read much about how the new Duonic transmission does in serious off pavement situations with oversized single tires. Can someone please give me a link or two, or comment from direct experience? My benchmark...

    Rifle rack inside an offroad teardrop?

    Has anyone mounted a rifle rack to hold a carbine length long gun, inside their teardrop? I have a Marlin 1895 STP (16 inch barrel) that I would like to mount in my (future) trailer. I am thinking about quick and easy access while camping in bear country...

    EarthCruiser USA factory tour?

    I may be going to Bend Oregon this summer on vacation. Is it possible to tour the factory, and what do I need to do? Call ahead and schedule it? Will I see anything worthwhile? I am most interested in seeing "hidden" details that aren't easily visible on a finished EC, such as the cabin mount...

    Duonic trans question - low gear ratio? Off pavement capability?

    I was talking to the sales folks from Global Expedition Vehicles at Overland Expo in Arizona. They told me that first gear is a granny gear and the truck normally starts from a stop in second. They also assured me that first was low enough for serious off pavement use, especially with the...
