    Smoking Tire Video Review of 2019 LX

    The Smoking Tire did a video review on their YouTube channel on the 2019 Lexus LX 570. They take the truck on the Rowher Flats OHV trail near Santa Clarita, CA. I haven’t watched the whole hour but they seem to have nothing but positive things to say and generally “get” the purpose and value...

    LX470 Front Brakes & 2 Month Impressions

    Corbeau Sport Seat - review and pics

    Over the years, I've always thought that the seats stood as one of the single greatest areas that could be improved in the 80, in terms of making it a more comfortable daily driver or long distance truck. This is not to say that it doesn't do these things well compared to similar platforms. In...

    More Power Puller Review - Comealong as a Winch Alternative

    Basic recovery gear is a minimum when going off-pavement. We all know that. A shovel, some cable or straps, a hi-lift, etc. My dilemma is that realistically, I can count on one hand the number of times a year I do this. Hopefully more in the future, but not currently worth investing in. Winches...

    2017 Ridgeline and 2015 Land Cruiser - review

    So my 200 is a great family adventure rig. But sometimes you need a truck. For me, sometimes I need a vehicle that's got the bed, can hold my family and still tow. Towing with the LC is an exercise in inefficiency and a great way to see all the gas stations along your route. I previously...

    Over the weekend, I upgraded my Dakota Digital VHX dash to their new HDX series. Here is a shot of the two side by side- They are very similar. The biggest difference is the large TFT screen on the new unit (right). The speedometer and tach layout are also slightly different. The hubs of...

    To Sequoia or not to Sequoia, that is the question??

    I was wanting to buy a 100 series Land Cruiser but looks like I am settling for a Sequoia due to they are much less expensive for the 2008-2009 models. Gotta keep Mamma happy with the budget. I thought I would get some experienced opinions on some questions. 1. Is this the same drivetrain as the...

    Finally! Pleasing, Warm LEDs for Interior

    So why LED? What's the big deal? For one: Power consumption. The stock bulbs are 8 watts each. That's 80 watts! -All 10 LEDs together? only 10 watts total at 1 watt each x10. That very reassuring when it comes to long nights of battery use when camping, etc. Second: Brighter, more useful...
