Re: Problem: Rear Doors Won't Open

Had an 87 or so, only two doors, but I know the seats flipped up and such. Any way yours do that to give you more capability to get the door panel further off?

Re: lunchtime MBO fail!

The only pre-fab shelter I had was a poncho and a cheap space blanket, however with the number of fallen tress we had around a lean-to wouldn't have been out of the realm of possibility. We each had 100' of 550 cord in our bags. Hers is hot pink, of course. We also each had a small to medium spool o...

Re: lunchtime MBO fail!

What can I say, they're super warm and fuzzy fleece sweat pant type things! :clap: I remembered while I was out there why I stopped trusting the snow pants, though. The side zippers like to "pop" if under too much pressure and leave you completely exposed. Gets a wee bit drafty. Luckily you just hav...

So I've been jonesing to get out and test the spec-ops recon ruck my wife let me pic out for Christmas, but I've been sort of procrastinating.

Re: Is there a 'show off your EDC bag' thread?

In the past I've used the dreaded CountyComm bail out bag, and their bail out bag XL. Smaller one in green, larger in tan. Never get funny looks with either, both are "messenger style". Larger one currently plays host to my 17" laptop and has a good bit of room otherwise, however lacking in cushioni...

Re: 5.11 or LBT

You're in Colorado, right? Never had any funny looks with mine here, but in the springs we have a sizeable .mil and former mil continent. Results in boulder and similar environs will likely differ.

Re: 5.11 or LBT

5.11 reviews sure to seem to be hot or cold without much in between. :vmad: I think part of the problem is how what is used. Chill at a desk most of the time with short bursts of doing stuff? 5.11 is perfect. Do a lot of moving around/sweating/work? 5.11 is not a good option, unless you get in on t...

Re: 5.11 or LBT

I cordially detest my Rush72 as a BOB or hiking bag, but love it for a kick around commuter pack. Can't beat the organization, but the suspension stinks on ice for me. I've many times wanted to sell it, but then 'd lose my current gear holder and would have to buy a roughneck bin to replace it. Righ...

Re: LMF firesteels compared Army, Scout, Mini

Did a similar test one year during the COZS wintergeddon I'm interested to see if you get similar results! Would be nice to know if bigger really is better as we decided, or if you're able to get great sparks with all of them. I think we used to attached stock strikers with each and didn't mix and m...

Re: !@#$% pos tacoma

Okay lets talk about your starter problem. Does it sometimes refuse to crank and just spin the starter, making a VWEEEEEE noise? If it does that, just beat on the starter with a hammer repeatedly until the Bendix spring frees up. That shit happens to all old starters. Also, having owned 2 tacomas f...

Scroll up. It most definitely says .380 and not .308, which is quite the difference.
