    Rotopax / Fuelpax expansion in the sun

    The rotopax handles can also break when trying to screw them on or off. Check your handles periodically and keep the threads oiled. I had a handle break free from it's threaded rod end and had the aluminum handle come off... leaving the threaded rod still on. I now keep an extra handle in my...

    270 Awning... Driver side or Passenger side?

    Yeah, that's my biggest concern.... my trails are very tight.... I use limb-risers and the whole nine yards..... I have yet to get an awning but it's only a matter of time.

    270 Awning... Driver side or Passenger side?

    I have a CB antenna on the driver side of my rear door hinge.... so I THINK I'll need to put it on the passenger side when I buy it.... the door also opens on the passenger side.

    Tire Deflators - What Do You Use and Why?

    I use the ARB deflator... works well. I also have a very small kit in my glove box with extra valve cores and the tool for replacing them. Everyone should have extra valve cores since they are so small and easy to replace. I haven't had a valve core go bad on me yet, but I've given valve...

    Help! 3rd Gen voltage booster

    I use the following one from HKB. https://www.hkbelect.com/ Dirty Parts also sells them: https://dirtyparts.com/store/detail.cfm/ALTERNATOR-VOLTAGE-BOOSTER-TOYOTA/pid-161838 It's the easiest mod I've ever done. Remove the ALT-S fuse... replace with the one with the diode.

    First run for my trailer ! ...... We broke it 😥

    I learned the hard way suspension ratings are for on highways... not offroading. I have blown both leaf springs, broke the new one, bent the axle.... and ultimately upgraded to what I thought was "overkill"..... which in actuality was not overkill at all. The ratings of both sides combine to...

    Soft Bridal Strap For Sprinter Van?

    Do not buy a rope with hooks.... those are "tow straps" not "recovery" straps. The rule of thumb for buying recovery straps is 1.5 x your vehicle weight so it has some stretch. And use appropriately rated shackles... whether you go with the "newer" soft shackles or the standard D shackle...

    Overkill Campers

    RKS thinking a marine grade vinyl has any R value is ridiculous. Good to hear Overkill is still trucking along....

    Overkill Campers

    I also think they have a great product and they're at the top of my very short list.... I'm interested in seeing what changes they make, even though I'm more than happy to have the zarges boxes... I think they're a great redundancy option in keeping things secure and dust/moisture free. I...

    portable ARB Twin Compressor - Help

    Wow! I never used any of their hoses actually.... I "upgraded" to a larger diameter hose that also is a better rubber and can handle cold weather better. I wonder if the larger diameter helps.... No issues here so far.... 6 yrs or so

    portable ARB Twin Compressor - Help

    Those take a pile of amps.... I have dual batteries and yet I also run the vehicle with a high output alternator. If I start it with just the 1 battery and then flip the switch for both batteries to kick on it noticeably runs smoother.... and to have the vehicle running it runs smoother yet...
