    Random Scenic Photos

    So I went out to get a pic of the Neowise comet from Skyline drive last night/this morning. That involved waiting until 3:20 am when it appears above the horizon at almost due east. Unfortunately my zoom lens was insufficient to get any detail with the comet at 16AU. Moon was also full an in the...

    Our 2020 Event Schedule

    The 2020 Sans Pants Rendezvous. I wonder what the patch would look like. *imagines something like the Duluth Trading Company buck naked guy in his underwear and flannel shirt* I'm horrified and laughing at the same time.

    2018 Taco TRD Offroad

    A simple upgrade to S-V.4 LED H11 / H16 Bulbs from incandescent halogen. Unlike the older LEDs that I had in my FJ these do a great job om mimicking the light element of the incandescent halogen in position and size. Digging up an old image of the LEDs in my FJ, look at this mess. Look at the...

    Ineos Grenadier

    Of course I checked Defender forums for some of that info and it provided proof that all car forums are the same throughout the world :lol

    Ineos Grenadier

    To say the design was influenced by the old 110 Defender is an understatement of epic proportions. I guess an argument can be made that the looks are style and the "engineering led" part is getting rid of all the annoyances of a design that's decades old. Where things like air conditioning was...

    Rivnut Tool Recommendations?

    I got mine from McMaster-Carr. About $55. It's a solid tool. Got a M8 nosepiece to go with. For larger than M8 I'd go with pneumatic. Plier-Style Rivet Nut Installation Tool, Includes 8-32, 10-24, 10-32 Mandrels/Nosepieces https://www.mcmaster.com/95585A600

    A better trail trash bag?

    I had my Trasharoo on the back of the Tacoma for a while. I just bought a scratch protection mat (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TS3JFTY). Cut it a little wider than twice width of the Trasharoo or Oscar's and long enough to completely wrap the tailgate. You can go wider to make the mat...

    A better trail trash bag?

    Same internal dimensions as a Trasheroo. Unzipping the front will make taking out my "trash can" a lot easier. PVC that's not even glued together. Bag hangs in it and a secured by the bulldog clips. I pull the entire frame out and set it up next to where I need a trash can.

    A better trail trash bag?

    Giving the Last US Bag some use and abuse. One like. The 18oz. poly vinyl of Oscar's Mobile Hideout vs. 900 denier canvas of the Trasharoo. The poly vinyl a lot easier to clean with a hose. My first Trasharoo stayed on the FJ all the time 24/7 365. It lasted about 4 years but the canvas began...

    My hopes and fears are the same but I've heard good indications that it's not going to be. I met their accessories manager at Overland Expo East and we've been keeping in touch.
