    Welding on a vehicle

    I've heard people saying that welding on a vehicle has potential of frying the ECU (if equipped). I'm talking like welding on the frame or a bumper. Is this true? The only proof I really have is the incident involving the BMW motorcycle from Long Way Round. They had to weld up a break in...

    ARB replacement bumper light

    X-posted from NOR due to plenty of members here running ARB bumpers. For quite some time now the bumper lights on my ARB haven't worked. Even after I bought it (used but in good shape) they were worked intermittantly. So a few weeks ago I did a serious search for a replacement SET as I...

    Texas SB 155

    A few years ago the state passed SB 155 which took away our ability to go off-highway on state property that was not forbidden. One of the number one locations for many OHV people was a place known as the Slabs. It was all granite and sand from granite. Many other locations were taken away -...

    Stabilizers on trailers

    Okay I haven't seen them on anything but the largest of expedition trailers but... If you have a rooftop tent on a trailer does the whole trailer wiggle much at night? Even if it's still attached to the tow vehicle?

    ARB LED's

    The other day I saw a black TRD with an ARB. The front marker lights which are normally just "on" had been modified to be turn signals and were LED's. Very slick. Anyone know of this modification or are the newer ARB's coming that way?

    bed storage

    I plan on building a custom storage unit for the bed of Stormy. It'll just be between the fenderwells. I'm planning on two small bins towards the rear(close to the tailgate) and one larger one at the front of the bed(by the cab). Hinged and lockable are really not options. Gas struts to lift...

    Swing gate for pickups

    I plan on building one very soon. I've noticed some (A)swinging from the passenger side (makes sense = get out of drivers side and open), (B)swing on drivers side (that is the side I want to mount the tire on but weight on the gate that far out could be too much) or (C)custom setup that would...
