    The Status of Overlanding Today

    If you're hanging out in major cities, then yes an RV is a horrible option. I sort of alluded to that in my initial comment. Now, if you're out exploring national parks, rural areas, etc. then RVs really shine, even suburban areas are pretty solid for them. I'd never look to go to NYC in an...

    The Status of Overlanding Today

    I think a lot of the travel trailer vs hotel/airbnb/etc. thing comes down to what you're looking to do. I find hotels are awesome as singles or couples, but are not great for young kids. Airbnb can be hit or miss but seems like a great option for as long as it's around. The biggest plus I can...

    2017 AEV Prospector and FWC Woolrich Camper for sale $ 138,000 OBO

    Apologies, I didn't pay close attention to the price and I'm not an AEV collector so the price is too high for me. GLWS.

    2017 AEV Prospector and FWC Woolrich Camper for sale $ 138,000 OBO

    Is the truck a g56 or auto? 4x4 I assume? Would you be willing to split the truck and camper or single sell only?

    The Great Truck Camper Advertising Thread (Formerly Some Lame Title)

    Everything else aside, I don't understand this (emphasis mine): The truck is 100% overloaded. Now, I would still argue that the trucks frame should have had no issue here. That truck is probably a good 20% over payload before the camper is loaded or anything else is added to the truck. With...

    Flemster's 22 Ram 3500 Build - Sherpa Edition

    Thing is looking great. Love how streamlined it is. Did you decide to just nix the winch due to the intercooler interference issue with the stock bumper?

    Converting to manual locking front hubs

    Outside of the additional maintenance of having to grease the "free spin hubs", MPG gain (if any), and the other items discussed, I'd think the biggest win for the Dynatrac kit would be in their strength for larger tires, more negative offset than factory, and "hard" off-roading no? I see a lot...

    San Diego/Boise *Price Drop* 2022 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon w/ GFC

    I won't clog up your sales thread with comments about truck size, but long and short is no free lunch. Larger truck is a bit more hassle daily driving, but way better for a family. Harder on certain trails, but way better for road tripping, etc. My truck spends 90% of the time with just me, so...

    San Diego/Boise *Price Drop* 2022 Jeep Gladiator Rubicon w/ GFC

    I dropped by because I continue to toy with getting a Gladiator as a downsize from my current Ram 2500, but I'm in a similar situation with you in terms of car seats and dogs (oddly enough also a chocolate lab). Good luck with the sale, one thing, you should update your ad. You claim "Only one...

    Flemster's 22 Ram 3500 Build - Sherpa Edition

    How did the bulletproof mount do? Doesn't look like you have much heavy, but curious if it wobbled a lot.

    BFGoodrich KO3 coming soon!

    I have a love hate with my AT3Ws. On the one hand they are the best winter tire I have had for slush, hard pack, ice, and other general new england road conditions one may experience "on road". I've not had the chance to take them off road during the winter, but anything deep I'd be nervous they...

    Flemster's 22 Ram 3500 Build - Sherpa Edition

    I saw your build mockup on insta a while back and sent it to a bunch of my buddies. Truck looks super sharp and I dig every part of it, especially the Mits Alloy tray. I'm curious if you have some super interesting plan for putting a winch where you have it rendered, because when I first saw...

    The bigger the truck, the greater the (misplaced?) concern about payload?

    I honestly think this trend for going bigger is just the ebbs and flows of the industry. People get tired of the same old thing and want something new. There are starting to become more and more bolt on options for full sized rigs, so the jeep/yota crowd can start doing their mods. I think we...

    The bigger the truck, the greater the (misplaced?) concern about payload?

    Two things on that. #1, just because a lawfirm filed a lawsuit doesn't mean Ford will be found liable for anything. #2, the legal firm filing the lawsuit is Hagens Berman, which is a class action law-firm (aka ambulance chaser) who is only looking for a settlement and payout. Their MO is to get...

    The bigger the truck, the greater the (misplaced?) concern about payload?

    I don't think I've ever heard of a case that gets to trial where a OEM has to backup safety decisions. Some vehicles have poor side impact ratings, I'm sure that some people have died as the result of that, but I haven't ever heard of a vehicle manufacture being brought to trial for it. If you...

    The bigger the truck, the greater the (misplaced?) concern about payload?

    I'd agree with the first bolded comment. Every modern vehicle is built with huge margins for safety, because normal conditions are only part of the driving experience. That said, your second comment is sort of the obvious "don't do this". I'd argue that even if you're driving down said pass at...

    The bigger the truck, the greater the (misplaced?) concern about payload?

    The "right thing to do" starts to become a pretty grey zone pretty fast, considering that we all have slightly different moral guidance. For me, I look at the GAWR, and say "Am I under that number? Ok I'm good.", for some, that is not the right thing to do, because a sticker says no. For...

    The bigger the truck, the greater the (misplaced?) concern about payload?

    Didn't take long before this dropped down to a 3/4 vs 1-ton fight due to GVWR/payload huh guys? I can't speak to the current iteration of the ford, but previous iterations the difference was basically just the sticker. Most F250s on dealer lots near me had the exact same axle, brakes, etc. as...

    Ram 2500 Rebel

    To my knowledge, the Rebel does not include any upgraded springs, just shocks. So you're not getting the lift the power wagon has. Additionally, you're losing a lot of the PW goodies. The only real benefit, for the Cummins trucks at least, is the rear locker. That's nice and all, but if I could...
