    Dumb injuries

    So last weekend I went to open a garage door and ruptured the lower ligament on one of my biceps. I had surgery for it on Friday and now have 6-8 weeks off to recover. So far this is the worst stupid way I've managed to injure myself, although I'm sure that can be topped.

    Wanted Jeep 17" takeoffs, adapters for 4.5" pattern

    I'm having some issues with selling my Explorer, so I'm thinking about lifting it and throwing on bigger tires. Does anyone have some JK/JL 265/70R17 takeoffs for a decent price? I'd also need adapters for the Ford 4.5" pattern to fit those.

    So now what

    I haven't seen any discussion of this on here, so while I try and steer clear of political crap, I think this needs to be talked about: What the hell is Trump doing? Inciting riots, his supporters storming the capitol building? Refusing to gracefully step aside and let the political process...

    Wanted OBS Ford 10.25 3.55 or 3.73 axle

    My F250 was a Texas special with a four speed, and has a 3.07 rear end. I'd like to drop that down to a 3.55 or 3.73, so if anyone has an 80s or 90s 10.25 rear end with one of those ratios, I could use it.

    Making my last run, taking my mother in law's stuff back to her in Oregon. I'm going on Saturday, the 25th, and will be coming back empty Sunday. I have room for about a pallet's worth of stuff on the way out if someone wants something transported that direction. It may end up smelling like...

    400 with 4BBL intake and 4350 carb, dual exhaust with glasspacks. I got this non running to use for storage, found it had a new engine, new tires, and some wiring issues. I fixed those, put in a new ignition module, new starter and solenoid, and have driven it quite a bit since. I have it...

    Radiator transmission cooler as power steering cooler?

    Truck is a 71 F250 body on an 85 F250 chassis with an 89 7.3IDI and ZF 5speed. The typical Ford power steering "cooler" loops on the front crossmember is in rough shape. I'd also like to mount my electric lift pump right where that cooler is. I put a new radiator in this thing, and it has a...

    For Sale 81 E350 box van

    I just drove my E350 box from eastern Oregon to Twin Falls, and I'd like to find it a new home.

    Off road games

    I haven't been able to get out in a while, and it'll be a bit before my Courier is trail ready, so in the meantime I've been looking at off road simulator games. Years back I had the Cabela's Off Road Adventure series. The first two were a bit lame, the third was quite promising but kept...

    Male breast cancer

    A bit of an odd topic, I know. Not one I ever put any thought into, most guys never think about it because breast cancer only happens to women, right? Well, this past year I found out otherwise. I found a lump in my chest, and after some convincing from my wife went and got it checked out...

    Building for overland adventures

    So this is a bit of a new field for me. I grew up in the Northeast, so most of my early 4x4 experience is with slippery snot clay, mixed with gravel, mixed with smooth granite. Most stuff was just play stuff, go out, wheel, break it, limp home, etc. Living in Arizona, I spent a good amount of...
