    Next generation snatch block

    Thread bump. Anyone else see this video comparing blocks and rings? It seems more rigorously done than the one posted earlier in the thread (this one) and would seem to refute the idea that there’s a meaningful difference between efficiency and friction when comparing blocks and rings.

    Sewing Thread....A discussion on making your own adventure textile gear.

    Thanks! I don't think I could have done the rewiring and restoration without youtube. It was a pleasure working on something that was made so well, and made to be taken apart easily.

    Sewing Thread....A discussion on making your own adventure textile gear.

    My wife recently bought a 1938 Singer 201-2 from a friend of hers, and I spent some time over the holiday break rewiring it and cleaning and fixing it up for her. Now I want to learn how to use it... it's built like a beautiful little tank. Hoping to find some good ideas in this thread.

    Got a new 4Runner this weekend

    Looks nice! As an Xterra owner who has never driven a 5th gen 4Runner I’m interested to hear your thoughts on how they compare.

    Let's talk about buckets

    ARB On Board Air Compressor CKSA12 Air Locker Accessories - BRAND NEW

    This is designed for lockers, not tires, correct? The ad copy from 4 wheel parts seems to suggest it’s for airing up tires but I think it’s copied and pasted from one of ARB’s bigger compressors.

    Tool Overkill?

    Here's my minimal tool kit: All the pictured hand tools, except for the breaker bar, fit in the small canvas bag. Yes, they're inexpensive tools, many from HF, but they've worked fine for my needs. I also carry tire repair and recovery gear, and some small mission critical sensors and...

    ARB awning to Thule loadbars

    https://www.xterranation.org/index.php?threads/how-to-strut-channel-cross-bars-roof-rack.9099/#post-491787 I just drilled a few holes in the ARB brackets and bolt them straight to unistrut. You may be able to do something similar to any square profile crossbar.

    DMOS Elite Shovel Review

    What is this? A shovel for ants?

    Change your security lug nuts.

    That’s cool that you were able to help them out. Perhaps a more descriptive thread title would help others reading this in the future? “Get rid of this ASAP” could be almost anything.

    Noob Question - Pulling in Reverse?

    I have tried to find some pictures or a video describing why the gears are weaker in reverse; this is a pretty decent explanation: http://www.4crawler.com/4x4/4R_TechInfo.shtml#ReverseCutGears

    Do it yourself rack

    https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/homemade-roofracks.37607/ Huge thread on this subject, maybe there’s something in there that’d work for you. I’m a fan of strut channel crossbars myself, you can bolt most anything to that stuff.

    Camp Tables - What are you using?

    I may be mistaken, but I doubt you use that as a camping table. Based on your link I think you're just posting for SEO purposes. But please share some photos of it in use as a camping table. I'd love to see this 50 pound bulky table with tiny caster wheels meant for smooth surfaces used for...

    Very small camping toilet?

    When camping we often use wag bags and a kitty litter bucket with a removable toilet seat. The bucket has many other uses so we'd be bringing it anyway. You can see the setup here...

    Spare tire smaller than the tires on the truck?

    No AWD, it’s selectable 4WD with a transfer case and available elocker rear. The rear axle is basically a Dana 44 and the front is IFS. I didn’t realize this was the specific domestic full-size sub forum, thought it was more general. My bad. I am curious to know if a mismatched spare would...

    Spare tire smaller than the tires on the truck?

    There was a thread on an Xterra forum where this was discussed. One guy tried running pairs of differently sized tires on the front and rear axles. The computers didn't like it much, it threw CEL's and it went into limp mode...

    Tire gauge/deflator

    https://teraflex.com/shop_items/tire-deflator-kit I’m a fan of these. Once you figure out how many psi you drop per minute it’s pretty repeatable in my experience. You could use this to quickly bring it down into your <60 range.
