    Before they started calling it Overlanding, I was building my rig for this. It served my family and kids very well early on in its stock form...my son and I stripped the interior down and added some insulation. Recently I have added the Vintage Air system and installed a lot more insulation...

    Low Voltage and instrument lighting issues

    Description of photos: I had some "00" gauge cable on bothe batteries/starter previously, all was brought back into the new set up. The primary difference is the relocation of the house battery to the rear of the vehicle. Tied it in using 4 gauge and a 200 amp soleniod activated system...

    Trouble removing freeze plug (pic included). Please help!

    Indeed, the first few attempts with the socket kept bouncing around. Once I got in the right contorted yoga position I was able to get some nice well placed taps with the hammer into the extension and socket. Worked well, then I grew concerned I'd knock it too far. Thanks for the...
