Re: TJ's JT

Nice work!! I went round and round debating what to do for flat towing our JLU-R... MOPAR, Cool Tech, or the Hopkins diode kit... I finally took the easy (and cheap :oops: ) route and went with the Hopkins setup because I stalled long enough to put myself in a schedule bind, and simply didn't have t...

Re: WTB: TJ/XJ/YJ Wheels and LT tires

I could probably get away with a different set of tires/wheels that I already have in the shop, but I'd need a set of lift coils or coil spacers to allow them to fit... anybody have any TJ/XJ front coil spacers laying around?

Re: WTB: TJ/XJ/YJ Wheels and LT tires

I'd like to take the new project to the hills this weekend to get a baseline, but the P-series maypops that are on there are likely to leave me stranded on the gravel road :roll:

WTB: TJ/XJ/YJ Wheels and LT tires

Looking for a very inexpensive set of LT-series tires on wheels with 5x4.5 bolt pattern for a last-minute engagement this coming weekend... Anyone happen to have a cheap set laying around they want to throw out, or even for rent :lol2 I'd really like to find something in the 235/75 or 30x9.5 range.....

Day 8 & 9, 19/20JUL2020 Sadly, all good things must come to and end, and this adventure was no different. With heavy hearts, we mounted up and started the long journey home on Sunday morning. We took the fastest route, which happened to be through the mecca of Moab, Utah and ended up to to be j...

Day 7, 18JUL2020 For our last trail day, we wanted to run Poughkeepsie Gulch. It's the only trail in the area that has any real technical wheeling aspect to it, and it just so happens to be combined with some spectacular scenery. Due to some recent vandalism in the area, the trail had been closed b...

Day 6, 17JUL2020 We took a day off from trail running to explore the ghost town of Animas Forks, and then took the minions down to the Purgatory ski area for some fun on the hillsides. OG spent the day exploring a nearby lake and we all eventually met back up at the house for more food and beverage...

Day 5, 16JUL2020 OG and I have both done Black Bear a number of times, but the Lenzke party had never been in this neck of the woods before, so this was a must-do run. Fortunately, it had recently opened and we jumped on the opportunity: IMG_7844.JPG IMG_7845.JPG IMG_7854.JPG IMG_7862.JPG IMG_7866....

Re: SW Colorado Tour 12JUL2020 - 19JUL2020

Day 4, 15JUL2020 Our first trail day was intended to be relatively short, to give us all time to acclimate a little to the elevation (the rental house was our effective low-point for the week, just a tad shy of 9,000ft), and to give us time to get back to the house and relax and continue to settle ...

SW Colorado Tour 12JUL2020 - 19JUL2020

With most other 2020 plans having been foiled by the pandemic, new ones were hatched that would allow us to spend time social distancing at significant elevation, far away from the bustling cities that are brimming with the virus... Suitable accommodations were secured, a travel route was (loosely) ...

GTFO Run 7-02-2020

As with most of the best ideas, this one was very last minute... OG hit me up with an invite, and I simply couldn't refuse. We met up somewhere deep in a neighborhood in West Richland around 0930, and were full tilt boogy Westbound and down on I-82 by 0937. The general plan was to have lunch somewhe...

Re: RV batteries

I've honestly had good luck with regular old NAPA 12v deep cycle batteries over the years. We had our Coachman Class C for over 10 years and went through (3) pairs of 12v batteries during that time, with what I would consider average use for a family of four. Our new Jayco Class A also just has a pa...

Re: Camping...?

We will be going through Ellensburg and out Manastash RD to Riders camp with the RV. Gravel roads all the way there shouldn't be too bad for the Class A motorhome. In my worthless opinion, that stretch of gravel road is consistently among the worst in the world in terms of washboard... It gets so m...
