    So before the virus hit, I had plans on looking into organizing group buys and becoming a non-profit mud vendor. I basically just want to help organize group buys to get the discount for myself and mud members in the process. If I wanted permission to call vendors on behalf of mud to try and...

    I have to admit those Toyos MTs look really good, but likely out of my price range. Maybe time for a Toyo group buy! Jk I don’t like to jump ahead but I will make some phone calls and do some digging and hopefully figure some things out. If there is a way to bring those Toyo prices down then...

    If you look at what I chose to take pictures of, it seems like MTs are more my style. I don’t mind the bumpier ride on the pavement, that doesn’t stop me from getting somewhere but having less aggressive tread might. That and I used to have a Yamaha XT250 as my only vehicle for almost 2 years...

    I forgot to mention earlier that when I was there, I spoke to a fella and his dad who had just bought a modded Jeep that had some Cooper Discovery tires on it. He mentioned that the previous owner only paid 140 or 160 each for them, but didn’t know where he got them from. Before this I had not...

    Went to 4wheelparts to return the light bar and couldn’t help but drool over the tires. After messing around with some prices I am pretty sure I want 17s instead of 18s. Just the difference in tire prices alone makes it worth it. I ran a test quote on pro comp 33in MT2s and it was 40 bucks per...

    Thanks for that. I knew to a certain extent that you get what you pay for so a lot of it I was expecting. I wonder what he means by really hard to mount and balance though? I’m going to the beach for a few weeks soon, and I’m thinking the crawl control will be enough even on street tires. I’m...

    It feels like Christmas here!!! One USB port is loose on the Renogy, so I got a replacement from amazon. The Megamat is leaking so REI replaces it (1 year no hassle return is nice!). my little Jackery is here! Going to plug them in and let the bed self inflate and pick everything up tomorrow...

    Laundry day is a good chance to pull stuff out and clean/vacuum. I’m parked on a slant by the way. Here is a good chance to show how someone without drawers deal with storage and leveling the bed. It’s a work in progress and I play tetris to shift things around a lot. Everything, except what’s...

    They look good to me boss! Thank you for sharing. And just to confirm, 33s are good to fit into the spare tire spot, yeah? Towards the end of the year I might look into a long range tank and rear bumper to relocate spare, but that’s a ways off. I will go ahead and order them this week.

    I started listing things I didn’t need on Craigslist to raise money for car mods, and it wasn’t 30 mins before I encountered my first scammer lol. Posting to raise awareness about fraudulent Google Voice Accounts, which I assume will be used to scam people under someone else’s name. From what I...

    Whoops, forgot to tighten one of them. Good thing I double checked. All good now. Its so tight that it touches the back of the roof rail. Very minor scratch, doesn’t bother me but you can pad that area with something if you want to avoid it. Also pad the areas where the bolts are on the awning...

    Perfect day to do try out the awning! Feel free to stop by the stream later to hang out and chat. Today I’m just setting up the awning and then setting up my streaming backpack while I cook some lunch for me and Tiger. If you want to see how Tiger got so big, well today will give you a small...

    Now that I’ve spent hours doing it the hard way, I at least have enough footage to show the easy way to do it. It is a tight fit! I’m going to wait til tomorrow to open it up for the first time and hook up the light bar and room, so I can share the experience. And thank you to anyone who...

    Understood, and that’s my reason for dropping down to 18 from 20. I was thinking that because your tire is bigger, that 1 inch to you would mean less than 1 inch for me. Thank you for the clarification. So it seems to me that I need to be spending my time looking for 17s. Good talk fellas...

    You’re good brother, link as many as you want. Is there a reason you want to go specifically for 17s as opposed to 18s? With you running 35s, is there much of a difference between the 2? If I am going for 33, does it matter if I go 18 or 17? I was thinking 18 because our brakes are a little...
