Whats New

Welcome back everyone, I’ve finally been able to resolve my hosting issues with a transfer to a new host, it’s been a pain with that and my hectic schedule the last few months. Things have been changed up and I look forward to keeping the site much more updated going forward, as well as much more great content.

 I’m a huge fan of finding unique things, places, cuisine, and people on my adventures, whether they are short or long.

 I love this lookout point over my new city.  A little sneak peek of some shenanigans the other weekend with some buddies of mine. If you're looking at or have been considering any off road trailers, keep checking back here over the upcoming few weeks. I'll have some more photos later today or tomorrow.
 #tbt Fell in love with this area on my visits. So excited to finally be moving there in a week. #outofthecity #countryroads  Shoutout to Ex Cop Off-Road for super quick-shipping and a better price than I can get with my own preferred customer discount pricing. #excopoffroad #amsoil #fjcruiser
 Yeah, go see this. You know who you are.  I love a killer sunset for a backdrop... Throwback to a month or so ago.
 Reorganizing once again. I think I have the divider setup and layout finally down. Really loving these drawers.  Almost there... #iconvehicledynamics #icon #fjcruiser
 Time to replace the old with the new. Will have an article on vehicle first aid kits coming up in the future as well. #allthecombatgauze #quikclot #ifak  Time to join the @ivdsuspension team with some 2.5 fronts and 2.5 rears. More parts rolling in throughout the week. #iconvehicledynamics #fjcruiser
 Will be finishing up an article soon on the Tuffy FJ security drawer I swapped out my wood drawers for. It's been in a couple weeks now, wanted to get some road and use time with it before the write-up. Loving it so far, but I do have a list of advantages/disadvantages written down. Stay posted. #fjcruiser #fj #tuffysecurityproducts #securestorage #overland  Disassembly for re-paint begins. Dropping the bumper off at the powder-coated Monday morning. I love the Warrior bumper but the factory powder coat was not the best... #fjcruiser #fjcruisertrd #wrenchlife #aspiringadventurist #warriorproducts #warn #factor55
 Finishing up a radio install on my father's 100 Series LC today. Remote head Yaesu FT-7900R going in. Will snap some more photos of overhead speaker mount. Been an interesting project to keep everything as stock as possible.  Finally switched out my dry chemical extinguisher for a 2.5lb H3R Performance halon extinguisher. Dry chemical extinguishers will cause extreme corrosion in electrical systems, but a halon extinguisher will not damage electronics. Minimizing any potential damage is always the key, and this will help go a long way with that. I know a few cases where nearly new vehicles were totaled from small fires due to the fact that dry chemical was used, and the interior and electronics were not salvageable. Halon extinguishers are not cheap, but compared to the other potential issues, it's a solid investment. In the end, any extinguisher is better than none, and this is just something to consider. #fjcruiser #h3rperformance #halon #safetyfirst
   I'm oddly ecstatic that my @refactortactical ASO bag fits perfectly in the drawers in the rear of my FJ. I'm tempted to buy another in Orange now to load up with recovery tools for the other side now... RE Factor, when's your next sale so I can pick up one at close to the old price hahah. Seriously, I love this bag, it's perfect for everything I've been able to think of so far. Any chance of an XL ASO bag? #refactortactical #asobag #fjcruiser #ilovethisbag
