    Colorado 12 volt plug for refrigerator

    Checking to see where you might be hooking up your 12 volt source for powering a refrigerator in your Colorado? I have a platform in the rear cab area for my Waeco 40l and will need to power it. I tried (knowing that the odds were not good) the factory power point in the rear of the center...

    WTB 4th Gen 4Runner factory skid plates

    I'm hoping someone close to Reno, Nevada has some factory skid plates (both is possible) from their 4th generation 4Runner lying around that they would like to get rid of. I damaged mine on Saturday and don't want to put aftermarket skids on. That's water from a recent water crossing...

    17" or 18" rims for travel to South America

    Everyone, I am currently running 17" rims with 285/75R17's, which are 33.8" tall. I am going to be doing some work on my truck and will have to change rims. So my question is should I stay with the 17" size or move to the 18" rim as I can move up to a 285/75R18, which is right at 35" tall...

    Locrwln's Death Valley trip 2012

    Since the tires were installed on Monday, it felt wrong to not go out and get them dirty, so my wife and I decided that because we had a three day weekend with no other commitments, we might as well give the tires a test (even though I put about 30k on a set of Nitto TG's on my Landcruiser). I...

    Magellan Roadmate 1700?

    Has anyone tried the Magellan Roadmate 1700? I know it has a spot for a mini SD card, but not sure if it will display Topo maps, does or has anyone tried it? I like the 7" screen, which Garmin seems very reluctant to build, they act like 5" is all that you will/should need. I would like a...

    Jack's 2007 Chevy with a 2008 FWC Hawk

    I have a build thread going on in the domestic section, but it seemed appropriate to put the camper stuff in the camper section.
