    All-Cab shadow awning on a 2017 LC ??

    Has anyone besides @fireball mounted their awning on the Gamiviti MegaMounts? I saw someone else with the shadow last summer and confirmed my suspicion that mine doesn't get fully taut due to the corner of the megamount preventing the awing from fully opening. This results in a lot of water...

    Buying a former military trailer with no title

    I was looking for a trailer last spring and had the same questions. I actually purchased one from NJ which didn't have a title, but was registered to the previous owner. With his current registration card and the vin plate on the (M101A3) trailer I was able to get a PA title without any kind...

    Help diagnosing creak under acceleration

    I replaced the sway bar bushings and that wasn't it so I had my shop take a look while it was in for inspection. They are saying the right torsion bar bracket is bent. I'll have to take a look at it tonight, but I'm wondering if this has happened to anyone else? I had these installed when...

    Help diagnosing creak under acceleration

    Not that I recall, but I don't drive over too many of them. I'll have to go find some and find out. I do plan on doing the bushings/links first. But since it's got 285k on the clock, and i have no evidence of the mounts ever being changed it's probably not a bad idea to just swap them out...

    Help diagnosing creak under acceleration

    Last summer on the way home from HIH I started noticing a creaking sound. At the time I just attributed it to my noisy military trailer after lots of time in the dirt. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case. I've finally gotten around to dealing with it and I'm unsure what's going on. Here...

    Ironman Commercial Bullbar

    Mine came painted. It's holding up fine other than on the bottom where I've bashed it into rocks. I'm not sure what the price differential is on the ARB, but since I've gotten mine I've thought a few times that maybe I should've just gotten the ARB. I think I like them a tad better.

    Ironman Commercial Bullbar

    Thats what I have. Quality seems fine, if I had to do it all over again I might have gone with something with a little more clearance. One plus is it gives you a real nice spot to sit/stand if you want to reach into the engine bay. I got it right after I got my 100, before I even had thoughts...

    Events/Trails HIH9 Trip Report

    I guess that depends on the kids, but I had my 2/5/7 year olds along last year and they did great. Tire them out and they’ll sleep for half the trail ride. My oldest complained the most and would have been happier just living at camp. The one day i did leave him and the wife behind I think...

    Brake Tubes and fuel lines 2000 Lexus LX 470

    This thread is the most helpful one I could find, but I still have a question that hopefully someone can help me with. I have an 04 LC (with ATRAC) and I'm guessing that because of that I have 2 brake lines going to the rear, vs the one shown in the diagram above. I need the tube that runs...

    Keystone Cruisers BESF weekend campout! Oct 10-13

    Just got home, was great hanging out with all of you! Look forward to the next camping trip. It was a little creepy after you all left, but also very quiet :) I realized I didn’t hardly take any pictures, but here is a nice reminder as I was pulling out.

    Keystone Cruisers BESF weekend campout! Oct 10-13

    My wife found this today and thought it was hilarious (keyboard for reference, this is 6lbs of ravioli!) I hope all the kids like Chef Boyardee because I will be off loading this when I come.
