  1. The Base Camp

    The new general banter thread - The Base Camp. This thread is for posting up anything and everything going on in your life outside of the Jeep and Off Road world. Feel free to talk about anything here, but try to take any Jeep, wheeling, tech, etc posts to the other sections and threads to make them easier to find.
  2. Jeep Gladiator

    Now that the new Jeep pickup is all but released, what are your thoughts? https://jalopnik-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/jalopnik.com/the-2019-jeep-gladiator-is-the-glorious-jeep-pickup-you-1830696134/amp?amp_js_v=a2&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQECAFYAQ%3D%3D#referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fjalopnik.com%2Fthe-2019-jeep-gladiator-is-the-glorious-jeep-pickup-you-1830696134 I originally had no interest. But, after seeing more and more photos, I'm starting to think that it would fit my needs / wants in a vehicle. Just a little more room, external storage for dirty gear, and more towing than I have now. Price of course would be a big factor.

  4. "I Saw It On Facebook"

    The questions and conversations on Facebook in many different groups just baffles me anymore. No one thinks on their own, reads before they write, or even simply do a Google search. So, let's have a little fun with it. Let's see your best finds on social media.

    Maybe if the woofer wasn't torn.... and was chrome.
  6. Going to be pulling the rock rails & front bumper to do some scratch & gouge repair and a fresh coat of paint.  Going to drop the Rubi rails too to finally drop the collection of stones & rocks that have been building up between them & the tub.

    This guy can "build" a Jeep on 38's, but can't find a car wash on his own.

    Happy Thanksgiving 🦃

    Bartact is still the best on the market. If you want just a quick cheap cover for wheeling or for a sudden downpour, look at GrimeGuard.
  10. Rust through? I take it your carpet was holding water?
  11. The Base Camp

    Facebook has become the Idiocracy of the Jeeping world. So many idiots angry posting and complaining about not being able to drive over 55 mph in the snow, spinning out, wondering why their mud tires don't grip better . . .

    @rich6700 is a front D60 coming with it? I'm guessing you're on the "no new parts unless broken" plan with the wife and gave it a good send while in Wharton.

    Water Rd sucks.

    Ouch. What replacement are you going with?
  15. Rock the Clock 4 - Bald Eagle State Forest October 26 - 28, 2018 That's right, we're changing things up this year. RRC4 will be an overlanding style weekend of camping and wheeling in Bald Eagle State Forest in Pennsylvania. More information will be provided, but here's some basics: Each vehicle will have to meet all street legal requirements such as registration and inspections. Each participant will have to be self-sufficient for their camping and food needs. Camping for this trip is free. I am asking for everyone to plan on keeping their camp setups small so we can accommodate everyone. If at all possible, please try to tent camp versus bringing trailers. If you need to bring a trailer, please be willing to book your own near by campsite, again they are free. Based on the size of the group, we may have to grab a few sites anyway. 10 people is the key number to stay under to keep off the park office's radar and avoid needing a special use permit. This means that I may be booking a site for 6, having someone else book for another 6, etc. Again, more info will be coming, but this will be a very casual weekend. Also, this trip will only be posted here. I am not putting it on Facebook or other social media. Reply below if your are attending.
