  1. Switch placement ideas

    There is also room just below the gear shifter for smaller switches. The center console is held in place by 4 bolts and comes up fairly easily once you disconnect the wires under the passenger seat.
  2. Practical Truck for the Over Prepared Woman

    Hey Clark! Sorry to hear about your knee surgery :/ Unfortunately the Medano Pass was closed :( I really wanted to do it, but that was the trade off of getting their early enough for a little skiing! I would definitely recommend the Ozarks as a stop, at least for a day or two. We are...
  3. Fox Steering Stabilizer reviews / feedback?

    Also, there seem to be Fox people and Teraflex people. Only you can decide which flavor you are :)
  4. Fox Steering Stabilizer reviews / feedback?

    Done with dinner, so a little more info to help you out. I upgraded my stabilizer because with bigger (and wider) tires I was feeling the truck getting pulled into potholes. This can be a little scary when going 60-80 as you can imagine. I was looking for something that would lessen the shock...
  5. Fox Steering Stabilizer reviews / feedback?

    I have the fancy version (adjustable) of this and quite like it.
  6. Jeep Adventure Academy--Llano Photos

    Warfab Inc has some nice hitch skids. I'm sure there are others out there too :) I bought mine after I bent the safety chain tab pretty badly. My jeep is lifted and on bigger tires, but I still manage to scrape it on stuff occasionally. Worth the investment IMO :/ Looks like a fun event! Glad...
  7. Practical Truck for the Over Prepared Woman

    Also, shoutout to Don @Discount Tire! Thank you for helping me get everything coordinated for the new wheels and tires. It was the most painless tire buying experience I've had so far :) Showed up, and the team already had everything mounted and balanced. I was in and out in 30 minutes <3
  8. Practical Truck for the Over Prepared Woman

    good idea :) I may try that as an intermediate step. Just moved into a real house with a REAL garage this weekend. I’m pretty excited not to be working in a parking garage soon! Truck handled the UHaul trailer like a champ.
  9. Practical Truck for the Over Prepared Woman

    Thank you. I hear you on the rust risk. Anything mild steel very quickly turns into rust here in Virginia. So far the compressor hardware is holding up well, it’s mostly aluminum and stainless parts. I have had to use a little graphite on the bearing in the quick release connector though. I have...
  10. Virginia 5x 20” Method 606s + 35” Maxxis RAZR MTs

    Just switched to 17” wheels for a bit more grip on the trails. These wheels and tires have served me well for around 12k miles, pictures below of each tire and wheel. Highly recommend the Maxxis tires, they drive great on the road and perform like pros off it :) Wheels are in good shape, but...
  11. $115,OOO

    Is that their test mule?
  12. Looking to buy Leather dash panel black with with white Stitching for 2020 Galdiator

    That depends on your definition of difficult. If you are comfortable disconnecting your batteries, a few wires, and popping trim panels off... then it’s an easy job :) I recommend googling for it, there are a bunch of guides. See what they do, then make your own call.
  13. ARB vs VIAIR

    I think it comes down to how “enginerdy” you want to get. ARB is a solid compressor, is well known, and has a huge aftermarket in the off-road world. As such, there are lots of easy commercial solutions. Viair is also big, but not as many off-road vendors tailoring to them. I personally like...
  14. Stock Driveshaft Failure

    1.5 inch is less than the 2 inch mopar lift. I know logic doesn’t work often with dealerships, but it is worth a try pointing that out. Yep, but I assume most of us are doing that with 3 inch and greater lifts + bigger and heavier wheels. At least that is why I swapped my driveshafts out...
  15. Practical Truck for the Over Prepared Woman

    Hit the Ozark TAT on our way back through, since we went to Texas heading west. Lots of fun river crossings and camping was $3 a night at both places we stopped! Earned a few scratches from tight trails, and there is a lot of water on the trails near the river. There were a couple mud holes we...
  16. Practical Truck for the Over Prepared Woman

    We spent a few days in Moab. It was a week before the Jeep Easter Safari, so things were starting to get crowded. To beat the crowds we stayed out of town and did some of the less “popular” trails. Our favorites were the Boxcar Loop and Eye of the Whale to Tower Arch. Both moderately difficult...
  17. Practical Truck for the Over Prepared Woman

    Playing catch-up here, last week was awesome! We went to Sand Dunes and skiing in Colorado. Highly recommend sand dunes for something different. I heard somewhere that sand boarding was more like surfing than skate/long boarding or snowboarding. It was fun figuring it out though :) As mentioned...
  18. It's that pesky weight thing again

    That’s a lot of steel, aluminum rocks. That said, your gross vehicle weight is about CYA. It’s based in what will fail first. I think I remember on the Gladiator it’s tires and wheels first. Then brakes, suspension, and axles. Since you are focused on celebrating life and love your build, I...
