    Backpacking food 2021

    Looking for updated options/ideas for lightweight backpacking food for an upcoming trip. For a weekend/long weekends I really don't pay much attention to weight and I can usually just grab stuff out of the pantry. If the trip extends toward a week I really need to pay attention. Not just to...

    1997 CE; buy?

    There is a decent looking 1997 CE in a mechanics lot down the street from me. $6000 on the for sale sign. Cursory look, could use a front axle rebuild. No other info at the moment. No idea about lockers, mileage, etc... I feel like I should just buy it. LOL

    Water crossings + 1000 miles...

    Kind of a question, though I probably know the answer... We did a lengthy road/offroad trip recently (I won't use the word "overlanding" ... ) and did some water crossings early on in the journey. Is there some point where any water sucked into the differentials get boiled off? Or is it...

    This should not be necessary...

    Did the alignment thingie a few weeks ago at the local tire monkey place, I've been generally happy with their service. They torqued s*** way too tight. :mad: I broke three sockets, two lug wrenches, several adapters, and shared off a few wheel studs trying to loosen up what they fxxxed up...

    I'm at my absolute wits end - antenna thread!

    Seems to be the trend here, maybe I can get a 30 page or so thread going... :lol: Is there something I can just plunk in there and forget about it? I've done the replacement mast thingie, and it works fine, when it feels like it. It decides to not work at the most inopportune times. Tired of...

    Cali emissions questions and some info that may help people...

    I had my piggie tested yesterday and the CO and HC numbers were kind of high, but passing. I'm trying to sell this thing. Well I know I've gotten better numbers, even from when I first bought it, piston ring free and who knows how many cracked/missing vacuum hoses... So I looked back at...

    80 Series Rear Bumper/Carrier [CA-Sacto]

    Hello, I have a custom made VERY well built bumper + swing down tire carrier. Bolts right on to the rear frame. You'll need to remove the crossmember... Tire carrier is impractical for my purposes, and the neighbor would get pissed if it crashed down on his Prius! :lol: Asking $450...
