    Brilliant. I think a dolly under a fifth-wheel is still a single.

    Air Compressor Options?

    Ditto. I now pay people to do work that I used to do myself because I'd rather be driving it than wrenching on it.

    Air Compressor Options?

    Yup. That's about better than a thousand dollars worth of sweat equity. You can build one yourself in a couple hours for less than an ARB twin. (belts and pulleys) You could build a really nice one for a little more (directly coupled). I've got most of the parts laying around to put one in...

    Air Compressor Options?

    I agree. The form factor is terrible, but they will keep up with a shop compressor as long as your battery holds out. They run $1,600 - $1,900 from Oasis, but you could probably put your own together (with a new motor) for $3-400. All you need is a winch motor, a $25 junk yard A/C...

    Air Compressor Options?

    Go big or go home. Just bolt a winch motor to a york A/C compressor and be done with it. Or buy one from Oasis: https://aircompressors.oasismfg.com/item/air-compressors/xd4000-continuous-duty-air-compressor/item-1052

    CTEK MULTI US 7002

    It's my go-to charger, and I also use the power supply mode to troubleshoot 12v projects on the bench.

    For Sale: Landcruiser FJ60/62 or FJ80 Front Runner Roof Rack

    Pretty cruiser, but I can't do it. An extra coat of paint up there would keep me out of the parking deck right now.

    Tell me about Bozeman Montana

    I was talking with a local in Bozeman a couple years ago about all of the new construction and people moving to the area. She said that they pattern they were seeing was that most of the newcomers made it through the first winter, but didn't stick around for the second one. I'm from Alabama...

    Ford Bronco's return

    7 - speed with a granny gear. 94:1 crawl ratio! That's just magic for those of us who are hopelessly devoted to rowing through the gears.

    Cold Meals

    Salami or summer sausage and cheese. We managed a night in the tent earlier this week, and Susanne made some chimichuri (spelling?). That and some bread to dip it in with sliced avocados and sliced tomatoes and onions works out real good.

    Battery disconnect switch for winch

    Advice: If it gives you piece of mind, then do it. It's an added safety factor, it doesn't cost much, and it's easy to install. Make sure you install it under the hood so that it cuts off the power before the cables go through the grill. While you're at it make sure your positive cable is...

    Ford Bronco's return

    Hard not to like that transmission option. My Fords have always been good to me.
