    4 Cyl 5 Speed Tacoma: Has anybody regretted getting 265/75R16 tires?

    I'm going to get Duratracs for a 2015 4 cylinder 5 speed extended cab Tacoma. No mods except a cap on the back, I'm trying to keep it light. I'd prefer 265/75R16 size to the stock 245/75R16 but I'm concerned about gearing. I'm currently in Colorado and the truck already needs third gear to make...

    River Trip on Rio Marañon in Peru

    LJ Transfer Case Shifter Mechanism Woes

    This is really ticking me off and I'm fed up with lying in the dirt wrestling a stupidly designed rod back into a bracket. The manual transfer case shifter in my LJ routinely fails to shift because one end of a rod pops out of a bracket attached to the transfer case, leaving the lever unusable...

    Peru Overland By Bus Summer 2012

    How much tablet or netbook RAM do you need to view 16MP raw and JPEG images?

    Here's the background to the question... I'm looking for a netbook or tablet for a trip this summer. Small and light is important because everything I take will fit comfortably in a ~30L daypack that I'm going to be carrying pretty much everywhere I go. Cheap is important, too: as close to $200...

    We've got one way airplane tickets for the end of the world

    We're flying to Cancun on 12/12/12! Three of the four outbound tickets were paid for by airmiles so I wanted to get them booked early. We haven't got return tickets yet so, for the time being at least, we can joke about flying one way to witness the end of the world! I'm not sure about our level...

    New Zealand Sleeper Van

    We rented one of these converted minivan "sleeper vans" for three weeks on a kayaking trip in New Zealand a while back. No 4wd but great use of space and, while basic, very functional and good value. It had some features that may be useful for the home brewer: The tailgate doubles as a tent...

    Need help choosing a smaller camera than my DSLR

    I've been using a Nikon D70s for quite a while and it does everything reasonably well even with the slow kit lens. The only disadvantage is the camera is simply too bulky. The only time its convenient is when its close at hand in the car and when I'm on foot it usually gets left behind because...

    Do I Feel Lucky? The "Ooh, That Could Have Been Nasty" Thread

    Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask...

    Oil Pump Failed and Destroyed 2005 Wrangler Engine

    The oil pump of my 2005 Wrangler (72000 miles) failed suddenly, destroying the engine in the process. Since the vehicle is not under warrantee this turned out to be a very expensive fix. This is just a couple of months after replacing the manual transmission that wouldn't go backwards. Much as I...
