Re: 1999 cherokee BOV

Very nice.

Curious about a few items you have:

The equipment racks for the rear windows - who makes, and how well build are they?
The metal side box (rear) who makes? Dimensions?

Is that an iPad mount in the front?

Re: HELP assisted openers

You want to think about Point Up or Point Down Both of these are point down. SOG Aegis - very nice, very light. It sits so deep in the pocket it's almost impossible to spot, which in turn makes it a bit slower to dig out (not a lot but, some). Benchmade Mchenry and Williams (not really an assisted o...

Re: Army "Loads Carried By Soldiers" report

I'm very interested in this report's mention of "double packs," that is, on carrying a second pack on one's chest. For a military user, it makes plenty of sense to have the ammo weight carried on the front of a chest rig, but I'm thinking more about the idea of a "chest pack" that serves as a count...

Re: How do you pick a Bug-Out location?

There's a number of ideas that have been written about - books full of them actually. First off, let's define what you mean when YOU say BOL. From my reading, it apparently means different things to different people. It may mean someplace where you can hide out and avoid contact. For some, it may be...

Re: Firearms and optic company etiquette

Best customer service I've had has been from SIG. Sadly both guns A P229 and a Sig 1911 both had issues out of the box. Happily Sig had them fixed and retured inside of two weeks, and they ran flawlessly after that (they also did trigger jobs on both while in service which was a bit of a surprise). ...

Where is your gas gauge needle pointing right now?

I filled up the other day - $91 - both jerry cans and the 20gal tank in the jeep. I was below a 1/4 which I really try to avoid but I got lazy - with both jerry cans empty I still had enough to get home, then back to the BOL assuming light traffic (bad assumption in an emergency).
