those trips all look like a lot of fun. love to see you taking your grandson out with you on some of those jaunts. he'll have great stories to tell his friends and maybe even get bitten by the offroad/overland bug.When l first joined this site and posted pictures of my rover...the very first comment was..." what a f'n piece of s***". Well, this f'n piece of s*** has been driven 30K over the last two years...without leaving me stranded once.

Going lower and putting on smaller tires. I'm switching to an OME 2" and doing Michelin XZL 7.5R16 tires. The truck is just way to tall. If I had to guess it is probably a 4"-5" RTE lift (new arms, Fox shocks, ect.) with 33x10.5 BFG All Terrains. I really can't understand why anyone would go through all of that trouble to put tires that big on with lockers and then install all terrains. I thought about keeping the lift and just switching to 8.25R16s, but my wife drives this and it wouldn't fit in her parking garage at work if it were any taller.Getting rid of your lift... going lower, overlander? What changes are you making, anything for sale? What do you have now?
That's what the campfire is for. I bring a chainsaw on trips now and we cut deadfall cedar for firewood. We build a huge bonfire every night and burn the day's trash. Anything left the next morning gets hauled out but that's not much.It was also a pain in the ass dealing with the clean up. That's one of the rookie moves on my coworkers part. They all had huge nasty trash bags to lug around the next day. When my wife and I go out we usually get by with just a grocery bag that we dump when we get fuel.
