    The End of the Land Cruiser? (LC200)

    https://jalopnik.com/land-cruiser-canceled-heres-toyota-non-denial-denial-1837405488 This doesn't bode well. Typically Toyota's marketing would say "we have no plans to discontinue, be happy to know xyz" They're basically like. "we haven't made the official announcement yet, so we'll tell...

    The End of the Land Cruiser? (LC200)

    But hey, the 2008 models are pretty good in terms of pricing. I was thinking about selling my xB daily for one of those. I think they're much more desirable since they don't have that horribly implemented Entune infotainment system.

    The End of the Land Cruiser? (LC200)

    That's a relief. The idea of the Land Cruiser brand and config taking a hike and being left with the LX570 is really sad.

    2011 Land Rover LR4 or 2010 Jeep Wrangler 4 Door Rubicon?

    Where did you find an FJ Cruiser within your budget? Any 2010+ with under 100k is practically selling for $30k.

    Dometic Toilet Thread

    Pit toilets are awesome! especially when they don't stink! The fancy ones in the Grand Canyon use solar powered ventilation fans that suck air through the seat into a chimney. For all others, just bring a respirator with an OVAG rating. They say you need to put the filters inside a ziplock...

    Dometic Toilet Thread

    Yeah, mine's elevated on a platform. I just wish it would come out further like the usual elongated toilet seat. I just checked, the Thetford's dimensions are 2.5" inches longer front to back and it looks like the front of the seat might have an extra 1/2" due to design. I should've gone w/...

    Chainsaws - Needed on the trail? Battery v. Gas

    Personally I'd stay away w/ electric. If you're in for a big job, you're kinda SOL because you'd have to wait for the batteries to charge even if you bring like six of them to go w/ all your tools. The other issue is torque. With the electric motors, you get torque 100% all the time. If...

    Dometic Toilet Thread

    Hey folks. Maybe it's just me but, does anyone have problems lining up their output shaft and exhaust chute so they fit into the toilet seat without leaving a nasty smear in the back or having the output shaft sitting on the front edge of the seat? I feel like this thing was made for 5 year...

    120V switch

    You're good as long as your gear doesn't exceed the amp rating of that switch. Engineering uses the 80% rule for specs. The load should be at 80% (or less) of the rating for whatever switch is being used, so you have a good margin there. The switch suddenly going bad after owning a piece of...

    120V switch

    Typically if they're only using one side, it's probably because the manufacturer while writing the BOM found a bunch them at a cheap price and just standardized on these. If anything, that switch housing supports 6 contacts so it's possible that they have other products that use that switch...
