    Totally impressed with GAIA and the ease of use. Works on our iPhone and the ipad flawlessly. The more we (wife loves it) use it the more we learn. Pre trip planning is a snap and we have found while out exploring back roads that we like to locate camp spots and drop a waypoint for future...

    Grand Cherokee oil change

    Lesson learned! I see the Fumoto for my V6 is the F106 (no nipple to get scraped off). I'll be getting one of those for sure.

    Grand Cherokee oil change

    Picked up a new to us 2018 Grand Cherokee Limited (V6) recently. Got it just before I had to go out on Fire with the Forest Service. So I talked to my wife the other day and she thought it would be a good idea to get the oil changed since we don't really know the last time it was done. She goes...

    Food Container for cooking?

    Maybe just open the can and place on stove- discard any leftovers and no clean up, they’re only beans.

    Food Container for cooking?

    yeah.....not too keen on aluminum. That Bento stuff may have potential.

    Food Container for cooking?

    My wife and I frequently will head off on N. Idaho Forest roads exploring and for a sunset dinner on the Coleman stove. Cast Iron Skillet cooking has become my specialty. I'm looking for a way to carry beans, sealed, then heated in the same container and resealed for travel home. Obviously metal...

    BFG's on WK2

    Will the 17” work ok on the limited rotors?

    BFG's on WK2

    That would be a perfect size if there was a quality all terrain available. Not seeing anything in an initial search.

    BFG's on WK2

    Have acquired a 2018 Grand Cherokee Limited with 265/60/18's and crappy street tires. I'm ok with the height but the wide foot print is not to pleasing. Exploring Forest Service roads here in the NW the tires tend to float rather than "Bite". really want to put some TKO2's on and have actually...

    I'm not using the ipad right now. Just my Iphone. I had it on Airplane mode to check the App for offline usage. I'm sure its just going to be trial and error. So far the planning phase on the laptop at home is awesome, and surprising how easy it is to work with. have not had a chance yet to try...

    New to GPS

    After reviewing the free version I opted in for $40 upgrade. Was pleasantly surprised at how intuitive it was right from the start. I even made a few routes I thought were within my capabilities to explorer in the next few weeks in the jeep. Downloading the maps to my iPhone after the work...

    All very good information. Thank you for the reply. I think your right in that for the cost, it could be at least an intro to GPS.

    New to GPS

    Been without a Jeep for many years and just got an 18 Grand Cherokee. So as we explored some mild trails this weekend I started to think how much we needed GPS. Back home I started exploring options and am intrigued by the GAIA platform . I have a older cellular IPAD (32GB) that I can use...

    4 cyl. Tacos?

    Boy, I never considered the 4RNR but your right, there are some good prices out there compared to Taco 4dr’s especially. Actually am designing a load based on the 4RNR to see if it is doable. One thing that stands out is the the more refined daily drive when not traveling. I’ll have to spend...

    4 cyl. Tacos?

    Is there any known issues with the 4th gen 4Runner FRAME as with the 1st gen Tacos. I know the 4Runner has a good overland reputation though.

    4 cyl. Tacos?

    Looking to design an expo platform as we move into retirement. Mostly highway with weekend two track forest service road expeditions. An older but still reliable second vehicle. Like the second & 3rd gen TACOMA. Had a great 1st gen dbl cab 4x4 TRD that I got burned on the frame issue. Can’t...
