    Clayton Off Road JT rear track bar

    I’m running 37x13.5x17s in my Jeep Gladiator, and have struggled with where to mount my spare tire. I looked at swing mounts on the rear bumper (expensive). And bed mounts (takes up way too much space). The ideal location is under the truck where the stock spare mounts. It keeps the weight low...

    Release notes

    Hello, Is there a link/page that shows the release notes for OB1? When a new release comes out there is a notification when you launch the app. However, if you don’t click to read them (or have a fat thumb like me and hit cancel by mistake) there is no way (that I know of, to get them back to...

    Rear shelf for Jeep JKU

    Hello, I built a rear shelf for my wife’s JKU so that she would have an area to lash gear down and provide much needed organization. It’s made from 12 gauge sheet for the base, in which I used a plasma cutter to make holes to lighten it. The rails, and frame beneath the bottom plate is 3/4”...

    Smitybilt 2781 hardwired

    Today’s project was to mount my Smitybilt compressor and hardwire it into my switch bank. I took advantage of one of my Decked “ammo cans”, which fit in the compressor nicely. Only thing I had to do was remove the base. Since the base has rubber grommets and feet to absorb shock, I added an...

    Map does not retain zoom level

    Hi, iOS version of OB1. If you are on the map looking to see where members are located, you will typically zoom in to see a group of members that are clustered together. For example, I live near the Charlottesville VA area and I want to see which members are local to me. So I’ll zoom into the...

    Issues with rear body sway

    I have a 2020 Jeep Gladiator with a 2 1/2” lift running 37s. Since adding a full height Rebel Off-road XPLOR rack and a roof top tent I’ve noticed a considerable amount of sway. Especially when cornering on the road at speed (created some major pucker factor at times). I’ve solved the road...

    A small piece of kit that gives huge piece of mind

    The other day I was wheeling the Bald Mountain Jeep trail in the GWNF (VA). For those of you who are familiar with it know that some of the mud/water crossings can become quite large. About 1/2 way across one puddle (more like a small pond) the water was 1/4 of the way up my doors…and I got...
