Re: 3G frame skid bars. Bad news!

Vintage? Seriously. Must be due to low production numbers. If 2008 is vintage, what does that make us? :angry:

Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

If you go on so much as a gravel road you will get flats. I will say that having 65 wagon wheel PSI in your tires will accelerate the collapse of these tires. They last longer at about 35PSI or so. At 65 PSI its brutal riding off-road as well. My issue is the dealer is doing my oil changes(free) and...

I could give a crap less about noise. I just like tires that hold air.

Re: 10 Things to Love and 10 Things to Hate

I can get 18 on the highway. But combined average is around 14. I drive up a mtn to get home. I look at it this way, if they reduced weight it would also be more capable off-road. Its not just about MPG. My wife's 2015 Four runner opens the garage door perfectly every time. Mine barely opens it and ...

Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

I trashed one and got a repairable flat off-road at Moab. The other guy running stock tires trashed one on the highway driving to the trail and got a flat on a trail. Of the other 19 trucks I think there were 1-2 flats total. ! Toyo IIRC. That tells me these tires are just shit. To be clear, Moab t...

Holy crap. So cancelled my holiday trip to Silverton early. Cross over the Animas river since there is not bridge, went around Kendell Mtn and started up Astra gulch and with 2" between death and a rock wall the first Dura Trash goes sppppppppppffff. Got in 20 minutes of light duty wheeling. We then...

Re: Best Build Decision? Leather....

They will give me 260.00 trade in on the Duratracs. Of course one is a new 300.00 tire. As usual BFGs have to be ordered so no tires for the 4th. I was thinking of the KM3 M/T. I had A/T on my Titan for years was very happy. But to me the M/T would look nicer. Also thinking of one size up. Not sure ...

Because if you build a new Power Wagon with cloth you are stuck looking at the tread pattern for those shit Wrangler Dynatracs forever! :vomit: Seriously, how inappropriate is this soft tire for this truck? In 16K miles I have had a slight nick in a sidewall on a DIRT road that took out a rim as wel...

Re: Alpine Loop - Colorado Camping

I always go on the 4th. The 4th is a blast. Just cannot camp in the Valley near Silverton obviously. We are planning to camp off Stony Pass this year, maybe just camp on the trail. The parade is fun and we always take a massive amount of Moriarty Ordinance with us.

Re: Rubicon Trail and Fordyce Creek May12th-18th

Wow that is early in the year! Sierras are that dry this year? I will be going in August. Certainly not two trails for the faint of heart. Fordyce has become insanely difficult, but what a beautiful trail it is. Makes all the wrenching and welding worth it.

So really needed my winch the other day and again the stupid Warn wireless remote did not work, in 90 MPH wind and I chunked it across the driveway.
