    "Here is a picture of us not getting stuck." This may be the greatest quote I have seen on this site :elkgrin: "Nice to see another down to earth overlanding rig." Wholeheartedly agree. Please keep sharing.

    They said to put a WINCH on the front of your truck, not WENCH. J/K (wench is an archaic word meaning young girl or woman)

    The overland beater: Dodge 1500

    Just read through your entire thread (blown Sunday morning - sorry honey-do-list). These are my favourite kind of build. Thanks for sharing the blow by blow and doing it with real life considerations (aka budget-minded). Looking forward to the next updates.

    MotoMaster TotalTerrain W/T

    I hadn't heard that the Motomaster Total Terrain WT was disco-ed. I have run them on two different trucks over the last 7 winters and have been suitably impressed. They were very inexpensive, handled wet, heavy-snow, southern BC winters with aplomb. Worked very well on both a 4wd crewcab 01 f250...

    How does the exhaust smell? Does it have that tell-tale sweet-dusty odor?

    2015 Ford F150

    I think Ford has really read the tea leaves on where trucks are needing to go. Much lighter, smaller, more efficient engines. I think this 2.7 has very sufficient numbers for typcal 1/2 ton use. Frankly, they are equivalent to v8 numbers of only a few years ago. Really looking forward to hearing...

    Suggestions : Popup Camper vs Aluminum shell

    Check out caravan campers. Used ones are cheap in Nevada and many have double rear doors. They look very sturdy.

    F150 suspension questions

    I recommend the f250ld or 7700 suspension and axles upgrade as a very simple, cheap and effective way to more effectively carry a load. I haul an old 8' camper and I have researched those upgrades. All a straight bolt-in. I use a set of Hellwig overload springs and they work well, but are noisy...

    Upsizing tires on OEM Wheels

    Sorry, I was typing without looking and half of the post was missing. Just edited it. Didn't use them in winter as I always ran dedicated winter tires.

    Upsizing tires on OEM Wheels

    I ran 255/85's on my Super Duty with a camper and thought the size was perfect. Decent load range, taller, fit the stock rims perfectly. Didn't like the mud terrain tread with the camper tough. If I was doing it again, I would buy the same size in the Cooper ST Maxx. My former neighbour was...

    1991 Ford Bronco buildup

    Very neat. I really enjoyed my old 94 F150, they are good trucks. 87-91 is my favorite body style. I too had great reliability and performance out of the ttb front. For my truck, I swapped out the stock coil springs for a new set of Moogs for a same-year f350 2wd. Lifted the truck and gave the...
