    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    If that isn't answered for you soon I'll let you know. I have a panel already on my J30 but haven't wired it. I'm thinking the pass through will be outside the canvas (naturally) and towards the front, being careful to not interfere with the hinges or possibly zip tied to them if I can find a...

    What is the best/cleanest Looking Option for Filling in Ambulance Light holes

    I couldn't agree more, but I think for most people, it's going to still look like an ambulance. Still, I want one too.

    Cummins 2.8 Diesel swap in a Astro AWD??

    Ouch.....but someone had to say it. What a buzzkill..... I thought the same.

    CJ-5 Hard Sided Camper

    That is very neat and very weird. He's done some amazing work but I gotta question the battery box up top. Tons of weight way up there! Seems like a very bad idea in already bouncy vehicle and there is great space low under the dinette that could've been used.

    E350 Chinook Build

    I really like a lot of the newer dark colors on overland vehicles. I don't think you can go wrong. The dark green and gray Jeep colors are two of my faves. I recently bought a gray Jeep and the color is called Rhino. So, of course, we call the Jeep Rhino. Check out that color. Not my Jeep...

    E350 Chinook Build

    Paint? Did you say paint? Can't wait. What color are you going with? I think the window mod is an awesome idea. I love Chinooks but the window design is looking pretty dated here almost 15 years after the end of production and I had no idea they didn't open any more than that. Pretty...

    2020 Ford Transit AWD

    No low gear, they are just light and small and unusually agile for a square box. They are also well balanced and have good clearance in stock form.

    Box Van Help

    Your best bet for narrowing down all the different types and manufactures of box vans is to spend a lot of time on the Craigslist pages in bigger cities. There are tons of different ones out there. I work on the road and see ones I've never seen every day. There is no database for them that...

    2020 Ford Transit AWD

    I wouldn't over think the price of diesel. There are MILLIONS, literally, of commercial trucks running on it in the U.S. alone (link below, there are many others to support it). It's not going to just shoot up like crazy at a certain point or the shelves at your local Walmart won't be stocked...

    2020 Ford Transit AWD

    That's really good intel Brian, thanks for sharing. Train Control looks like Ford's version of Toyota's crawl control. Cool.

    Probably so. I can’t figure out why no one wants to. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    2020 Ford Transit AWD

    In the case of AWD/4WD vans I totally disagree. If we had the numbers on how many were converted by Quigley, Advanced, Quadvan, Sportsmobile, Ujoint and all of the other smaller converters over the last many years we might know how many might've sold as 4wd from the factory.

    Thinking about replacing the plywood floor in sprinter with rubber stall mat.

    I'm a stall mat fan. Yes, they stink awhile but it goes away. If you're passengers have sensitive noses then take that in to account. Smells better than smoke IMO. Just gimme any vehicle that doesn't smell like smoke. After a lot of experimentation I found the easiest way to cut them is...

    That's interesting Winmag. I had no idea different states could do that.

    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    I agree. I have one. The top is stout. I can only imagine you're asking this question thinking of protecting your investment. The only scenario I can imagine this being a concern is if you roll, as in fully roll, the Jeep. If you are going to be crawling and risking flipping a Jeep then the...

    E350 Purchase

    Tim, don't buy a van with a salvage title from a dealer.....for any price. These things are a dime a dozen. They are EVERYWHERE. Wait out one with a clean title and buy cheap from an individual. You don't need a 'pedigree' on a used Ford van. They are ubiquitous, easy to repair and parts...

    FOUND Vans For Sale!

    $60k????? And why do people continue to muck up their pictures covering their plates??? So misguided. Are they afraid people who are looking for it aren't going to be able to find it? At least it comes with a wench. :D
