    Looks like a Honda Element anally violating a chevy product that has angry bird headlight covers. Gee, I TOTALLY want one of those.

    Rovers with access height?

    I had both a 2000 P38 & 2005 L322 with air suspension. The P38 got all new air bags, complete rubber replacement inside the valve body, and some software modification to increase "high" height. I added a fitting for an air line to provide (limited) compressed air out in the world. I had...

    I believe that dumbfuckery has been rising over the last decade, and while it may not be increasing exponentially, it is definitely accelerating. I live just off a 6-ish percent grade going up the first hill out of Denver. You simply would not believe the number of vehicles, especially as the...

    They don't have salvage titles because they were bought at auction. They have salvage titles because the previous owner's insurance company determined the vehicle was a total loss for some reason.

    That protrusion at the top of the B pillar is right where your head goes. No rear seat leg room. How about a functional arm rest on the front passenger door?

    Trails around Frisco, CO

    I don't get it. I bought a car so I wouldn't have to walk anywhere. So you're saying people "voluntarily" get out and walk?

    I had the factory taillight guards on my first Range Rover. Came that way. Off-road, I was doing a turn-around in a limited space. Backed into something or other. The taillight guard broke, and crunched into my taillight. $300 taillight guard, protecting a $100 taillight assembly. Fucking brilliant.

    A Better Discovery?

    Last week, we took a road trip to Vegas from Denver. Happily, I have a gasoline-powered automobile. If I had a cunt-wagon, I mean Tesla, I would have made it to Colorado's western border and run out of battery. And charged it where, in Fruita Colorado? Driving a Tesla is like wearing an ankle...

    2019 4Runner Observations

    My daughter's car is a jeep patriot, 2.4L I4 with CVT. That particular CVT is a piece of absolute shit. It takes all the engine power in and keeps it for its own nefarious purposes, releasing only a trickle of power to the drive system. I don't know what its up to, or what it plans to do with...

    I gave up on offroadable vehicles. I got a compact sport sedan, because fuck it. I don't camp or wheel more than once a year any more; the distance between "once a year" and "never" is pretty negligible. Might as well drive a car that actually responds when I press the go pedal, and is...

    NEW Tire Inflator or Air Compressor 150PSI 150LPM $20 Plus Shipping

    Speaking of Sonex... I was recently in a facility that manufactures satellites. They have a testing room, where they bombard the antennas with signals all over the RF spectrum. A BIG steel box (100+ feet in all dimensions) with sonex type material on every interior surface. The foam was about 4...

    Why do you have a C-stand in that room? I'm interested in one of your $20 compressors.

    That's a lot of spokes on the wheel. I've got big paws, so that would really limit how I grip the wheel. Unsatisfactory. I appreciate the "stop" & "go" on the pedals, I always get them confused. I hope they'll make an iphone holder down there where the shift lever belongs. And integrate google...
