    For sale: LED fog lights for Ironman classic bull bars

    Best value these days: 4Runner or GX460?

    V8/6sp >>>>>> V6/5sp honestly I don't know why anyone buys a 4R. loaded up at GVWR, it seems absolutely miserable on the highway/around town. Every built up V6 toyota I see in person always sounds like they are floored going any/everywhere.

    Lexus GX 460 & 470 owner's thread

    I was very excited to see Alpha Equipt wheels offering a 7.5" wide wheel meant for more narrow tires. These are the first aftermarket wheels I've seen meant for the narrow tires that fit on our vehicles so well! I picked up a set in Dark Earth color, but they also offer black and white. 17x7.5"...

    The Most Highly Anticipated 50 Watt Radio is Now Available

    There is over 100 digital DCS privacy codes and like 40 analogue CTCSS privacy codes for each GMRS main channel. That effectively turns those 8x hi-power main channels into over 1000 individual privacy channels. They aren't perfect, I'd say once a day my radio will pick up a main channel...

    MXT115

    I have received MTX275 to MTX275 in a deep canyon probably 7 miles apart on Simplex. I think the MTX275 is worth it over the 115 to have the controls and display on the mic. A midland MTX GMRS is exactly what you are looking for and what I hammer 95% of people to get over CB or Baofengs/HAM...

    The Bush Company Alpha Tent - Owner Impressions

    Honestly, and I know this sounds like BS, but I don't really notice an appreciable difference from the 200-220lb batwing/fiberglass clamshell combo we came from to the 300lb of bush alpha & 270 max.

    Why so many negative YouTube videos about RTTs?

    The biggest issue is cost, and because of that everyone cheaps out and buys a folding soft shell. After going through 4x RTT's, I can vehemently say either cough up $4k for a high end imported hard-shell clamshell tent off the bat or don't buy one at all. The only valid reason for a soft over...

    The Bush Company Alpha Tent - Owner Impressions

    It does flap in stronger winds but it does include 2 straps to cinch it down in the wind which helps a lot. It's a bit of a balance cinching the rain fly down, though, because if you tighten it too much, the fly will have too much pressure pulling it down and will eventually pull through the...

    The Bush Company Alpha Tent - Owner Impressions

    Oh I'm starting to get a picture of what's happening. I'm just over 200, I always keep the ladder pretty vertical such that the bush bracket laysflat on the tent anyways. I feel really sketchy when RTT ladders are kicked out. Another up for the Alucab ladder, the canted steps make that more...

    The Bush Company Alpha Tent - Owner Impressions

    I've found the L- slot ladder attachment pretty great and on par with alucab, though the double width angled rungs of the alucab ladder do seem much better. I can't quite picture how the ladder would twist due to the attachment mechanism (though I don't doubt you!)

    The Bush Company Alpha Tent - Owner Impressions

    It's actually not all that uncommon for awning models from different brands as well. I don't know why the design choice won't die off, though. I don't know a single end user who likes it.

    Cascadia4x4 or Lensun solar

    i burned a lensolar 80w panel on my hood in Arizona in about a year. The hood is an absolutely terrible location for solar, whether the panel is specially shaped for the hood or not.

    2021 F150 vs F250

    I would respectfully argue against the start/stop point. Starting is the single most wear inducing action of an engine due to the lack of oil pressure and circulation when it starts up, no matter how it initiates the start. I will say, I'd get the 250 for no other reason than that dreamy 7.3L...

    The Bush Company Alpha Tent - Owner Impressions

    1. What other tents did you consider? Why did the Alpha win out? - I considered Alu-cab 3.1 and Camp King. I decided on the Alpha due to the large wrap around rain fly, the height it opens too, and general list of features and quality. I got the bush tent 20% off which helped seal the deal. I...
