    Yes the T7, Yikes!! The markup on those is insane.

    I'll tell you what, when I test rode the Multistrada Enduro it was nothing short of insane. The one I rode had all the aluminum side luggage and top box. I opened the throttle in 3rd gear and was doing over 90mph at the blink of an eye. And that was with all the nanny modes on!! What I did not...

    It's cool. My mom always liked the sound of the dry clutch on those Ducati's. Unfortunately I never had the skill or money to own one of those insanely light and powerful machines. The Panigale R was not within my reach but boy it was my dream machine. I remember dealers getting north of 40K for...

    Dual Battery setup

    The Odyssey battery is the very best for a dual battery application. I could not afford them so I used a set of AMG's I got off Rock auto for a good price. I followed your build and boy that is a hell of a rig that is dialed in nice for your application.

    Dual Battery setup

    What size wires are you using? What style connectors? Almost looks like 8 AWG positive and 4 AWG negative? Pretty clean setup though. What are you running off your secondary battery? Where are your fuses and wire loom? I used 1/0 AWG throughout for everything connecting to ground and charging...

    Dual Battery setup

    Just be prepared for some fabrication and most importantly fuse for the wire and not the circuit.

    Not a GX but here is my setup for reference:

    And the synthetic is so cheap now it's a no brainer to use. My reason for using synthetic is different than most. Conventional is every bit as good when doing frequent OCI's and engine does not have any overheat events. I like the piece of mind of added protection the synthetic has. I use Motul...

    No offense Jiggletits but I do not believe you. I'm thinking you are just stirring the pot. I get that Ducati has a recommended 9K OCI. I don't believe that anyone follows that advice on such a high revving engine and has it last.

    I've had mine since 2018 and it was dirt cheap. Brand new 2017 Super Tenere ES for under 12K. It is the most comfortable bike I have ever swung a leg over. The Tracer 9 is interesting and another solid choice for reliability. We have a local Miata performance shop that makes these cars into...

    Think however you like on your own vehicle. I have enough experience with repairing all kinds of vehicles and equipment to know better than listen to anyone who discounts 3k-5k OCI's. AMD (Car Care Nut) gives solid advice and has outstanding positive YouTube content. I know with 100% certainty...

    I demo rode both the Ducati Enduro and KTM 1260's. The power was sickening. Typical 150+ HP liter sport bike power in an upright adventure bike. I settled for a Super Tenere. Happy I did.

    GXBob the only GX460 Specific Youtuber?

    Motorcycles only both ways on that rail. There is no way in heck I would take any 4 wheeled vehicle on that trail. The last few rides that place was like the 91 freeway at rush hour. No possible way to pass anyone.

    Yes and you know those trails. Big bear has some of the sharpest rocks around. And how about that John Bull!!

    Eaton E-Locker in a 2018 GX460?

    I would not recommend an E-locker or air locker on a GX. If anything I would get a TruTrac diff and be done with it.

    GXBob the only GX460 Specific Youtuber?

    I might add this gentlemen takes his not lifted GX460 on very rough Jeep trails and obstacles. These are trails that I am very familiar with. I'm blown away at the hill climbing and rock crawling ability of this basically stock rig. Any rig traversing the hard ways up Ceghorn to almost...

    modify family car or buy a dedicated car for off roading?

    Back East think trees and mud along with the rocks. Guys that race GNCC back east and enter a rare wet District 37 desert race flog all of us!!

    modify family car or buy a dedicated car for off roading?

    Regardless of what you purchase there are drawbacks/cons depending on what you want to do with the rig. A GX (or any other vehicle) will not run problem free when taking it off the highway. Seat comfort is subjective. I personally would not purchase a Jeep or any Chrysler product. For off...
