Re: Toyota Fj Cruiser - Jeep Rubicon or HUmmer X

FJ Cruiser, especially since it's rumored it will be discontinued, so brand new ones on the lot will go for huge discounts off.

Re: Learned an important lesson yesterday...

Yeah the Bronco should have a bottle jack that came from the factory, but whoever traded it into the dealership held onto it. Also my previous trucks have had the annoying scissor jacks. But point being I should have gone through the truck when I first got it, made sure the jack, lugnut key, and spa...

Re: Learned an important lesson yesterday...

Yep, no jack. A friend also has a Bronco and I checked the same place that his was, and everywhere else. Anyways I prefer bottlejacks, a lot more stable, faster, and easier to use than the jacks that come with vehicles.

Learned an important lesson yesterday...

Do not put off getting the proper tools for a truck. I purchased my 95 bronco a while ago, and it has fairly new tires with decent tread on it. It didn't have a jack with it, but I have a jack at my house (a shop one, the one with wheels) which I use for whenever I work on it. I have been putting of...

Re: Trying to sell my Frontier to get a Cherokee

Actually the Nissan's fully paid off, but I also am some one short on cash, if I sold it I'd have enough to get mechanics tools, finish my basement/do some work around the house, and have a little bit extra. And I'd rather have an SUV than a short bed truck.

Trying to sell my Frontier to get a Cherokee

Everything I've heard about Cherokees has been good, and right now I'm considering selling my 2006 Frontier Nismo 4 door for a Cherokee. Because I'm tired of having a truck that's okay for hauling or okay for driving people/things around, and with a Cherokee (since I can sell my truck for quite a bi...

Re: BOV Emergency kit (suggestions, reviews, etc)

I've got a Nissan Frontier Nismo package, and I live in Nebraska, if the Xterra is geared like the Frontier (and I think it is), it will spin out real fast on ice if you're not in 4WD, (especially in Lincoln where we have shitty snow removal). I like having a truck bed but sometimes I wish I went wi...

Re: Good BOV Motorcycle if you're looking.

Honda 750 is a great daily commuter, but not quite enough power for long hauls on the highway. I have an 1100 Shadow and LOVE it. Wish it wasn't so cold though :(

Re: First Firearm! Ruger 10/22

What's great is the gun came in a package, gun, 3x9 scope, rifle bag, spare magazine (25 round Butler Arms plastic mag), and a trigger lock, all for 259.99 (Well I also got a simple gun cleaning kit, oil, and then used 100 dollars of gift certificates so all in all I paid 200).

Anyone have recommondations on what ammunition would be good for just plinking? Will different loads really matter that much with the .22lr?

First Firearm! Ruger 10/22

Haven't had a chance to take pics yet, but I'm sure you all know what the basic 10/22 looks like anyways. I've never owned a gun and never grew up with them unfortunately, eventually I'd like to take up hunting (mmmm tasty game), so from what friends have told me a 10/22 is a great rifle to learn th...

Re: dogs

Well it's not so much how the breed is bred, it's how individual breeders breed. Let me explain, there are breeders that get more attention for breeding "huge and powerful, protective" pit bulls, and throw breed standards to the wind. The Pit Bull, like most terrier breeds, are in fact bred to bite ...

Re: Katana

It's a common mistake to believe that the Daisho is a weapon in and of itself, but it is in fact the Katana (the larger blade) and the Wakazashi (smaller one, about foot and a half long). The Wakazashi wasn't used much in battle itself, it was primarily for cooking (cleaning game, skinning, cutting ...

This is a great topic and idea, for a while I was thinkin of something similar to this. Having a main bag, for most emergencies, then possibly having pouches/a piggy back system to quickly attach to adapt to different events. Like for a chemical spill I wouldn't need a firearm necessarily. This idea...

Yeah it's 29.99 online, saw that after I posted. But I thought this would make a fantastic GHB, something with just basic supplies, water, and a days worth of food, very minimal to throw in the back of my truck. Also I do plan on using it for biking. I just picked mine up today in the Desert camo, I...

I'd say it's a great start, I like how you separated things only for your car or severe weather into your duffel bag. But I think you need more food, maybe throw in a stripped down MRE or two.

Tomorrow I'm going to go pick up a Camelbak Mule for 40 dollars, in Desert and Woodland camo. 85 dollars off the price, so I'm going to pick one up. It's too small for a B.O.B. but it'll be great for on my bike or as a G.H.B. Here's a picture of it on Campmor, if you're near a Cabelas I recommend pi...
