    Thoughts on an 1986 isuzu trooper 2.2 diesel

    They throw rods. I have an RS gasser and I just use it to commute and local fun. I would not consider a gen 1 for overlanding unless it’s the challenge of parts availability you want.

    price gouging.

    Um... No... Nope... thats wasnt it, great theory though. The same hornady bulk frontier went from 28c to 41c. I had saved the link as I was going to try some and didn't have my wallet on me when I ran across it.

    Ultimate F550 ArcLab / Total Composites camper for sale US$475.000

    its quite easy to run up a tab on custom build, and not be able to recoup it. Never be the nicest house in the neighborhood if roi is your bag. And, that’s likely the issue here. The neighborhood it looks to be in. The cost vs the footprint, chassis, and body curb appeal is off. I’m sure the...

    What do you use for a truck gun?

    being its a take down, and youre not gonna hit the ground running anyway, I'd rather have an aug broken down and packed in there.

    magnifier eye relief...

    i was just shopping new micro magnifiers for an eotech, and a thought occurred to me as i was looking at finding adequate eye relief.. the micros are shorter, but the eye relief is the same, so unless you wanna ditch irons on a AR or have an awfully long neck, im not seeing how that works my...

    unless you feel like walking around with a 7 pound lump of metal to keep it where it needs to be at all times, get pepper spray. besides, you can arm the whole family with pepper spray. you can have a lampoons vacation pepper spray cross fire if you wish, and at least you all wont die from...

    So is a '9000' class winch 'enough' for a 6500# Suburban

    i used an 8000 pound warn, on a 7800 pound landcruiser and winched the **** out it for yeeeeaaars. Why? A few considerations. Size/speed ratio. For many products, one unit covers a range of uses. In this case the 8000 was a 9500 with a different faster gearset, so I knew ahead it was sized for...

    Race drivers... wow... A crumple zone that passes at say, 30mph will likely fail at 60mph. They aren't some magical piece of engineering, and instead are designed to minimize cost and maximize safety at a pre determined test speed. You better make sure you wreck at 40mph. Not to mention, side...

    heres the thing, none of us have cut this open to see what they did, but, at 3mm, the "skin" is not load bearing over that distance without something that equates to gusseting somewhere, which essentially makes it a unibody shell. otherwise, it would buckle. That having been said, i'm not...

    I was thinking 6 years, 150000 miles, seat covers, and a wrap for 52%. Seriously though, you can get 2014 with 70000 miles now, at about 50%. That’s from a local ad about 3 min ago.
