    Both front coils broken on a 2013 JKU with 25k

    Like the title says, I have a 2013 JKU with busted coils. I live on Vieques, a small island next to Puerto Rico, and most of the 25k miles have been put on at or near a beach. Rust is an issue for sure. But still I've never heard of coils busting like this. Especially not two at the same time...

    2003 Honda 919

    While not an expedition bike per se, I had big plans to ride this thing up to Alaska this summer and it is a comfortable cruiser. It has the added benefit of being an incredible bike for the twisties too. Seriously, If I could only have one bike for the rest of my life, this would be it. I...

    Where the Eyes Go - 3 months in Central America and Mexico.

    My wife and I left US soil one week ago today. The plan is to spend a few months south of the border. And that's about as far as our plans go. We've been inspired by so many people here on Expedition Portal, I'll post here so that hopefully we can help someone else in the future. We are...

    Why I don't like BMW's.

    I'm kicking around the idea of picking up a good adv bike when we get back from our planned Central America/Mexico trip this winter. For some reason I just couldn't figure out why I had no desire to look at BMW's. It's strange because I'm a huge Bimmer fan when it comes to their cars. Then today...

    3rd Gen Montero Initial Impressions/Build Thread

    This is gonna happen over the next 4 months. Please be patient with me... I picked up a 2002 Montero Limited after months of looking for the perfect expo vehicle. I've gotta say, for our needs, I think we found it. And to think its mostly by accident that we ended up here. I had been...

    Anybody installed a 3rd Gen Dual Battery?

    I've seen it done on some Pajero's down under but never on our left hand drive Montero's. I'm hoping to fit two DieHard Platinum Group 34's. It looks like the second could be added if the airbox were moved forward a few inches. Has anyone done it? I did a search, If I missed one in a build...

    Truck Fridge sale. Prices only visible in checkout.

    I've been shopping for a fridge for quite some time now. I was leaning towards the Edgestar simply because I like to take chances. Well I guess the $400 savings played a roll in that decision as well. Then just before I plunked down the CC, I came across the Truck Fridge line...

    $6,500 for a 2002 Montero with 140k? Is that a good deal? (w/pics)

    Well I was about a day away from purchasing a GX470 for an expedition build when I saw this little gem pop up on Craigslist. With the money I was going to spend on the Lexus, I can pick this up and have it fully outfitted with cash left over for a couple weeks in Mexico. I've done a fair...

    The old reseating a tire bead with lighter fluid trick. Bad idea?

    I've done it a few times but after reading the article by Scott Brady "How to: reseat a tire bead on a 4WD", I wonder if I have been doing something terribly wrong. Obviously he wouldn't have written the...

    Lower profile fridge/freezer?

    Ok I've searched and searched on this forum and others, so this is a long shot, I know. Are there any fridges designed with a lower profile? We are planning a vehicle purchase (4th gen 4runner/80 or 100LC/GX470) for overland use and we would really like to have the fridge in the back on a...
