    Soft top Jeep roof racks... Any favorites?

    So, I'm in the market for a rack for my JKU... I've been putting off getting one for my jeep... but after ordering an epoxy SUP, I'm going to need to get a rack. Honestly, I don't like having a lot of weight up top on the Jeep, so I'm not looking forward to most of the racks that'll work with...

    Central/South Utah and North AZ suggestions/route ideas...

    Hey folks, @Pi_Baker and I are doing a weekish (maybe longer) trip out to Moab and central UT in April, and we currently have some gaps in our route/plans. We have some permits for the White Rim trail already, and some mellow hiking/outdoor plans in Zion, but outside of some set idea of what we...

    2wd rigs in action. Photos encouraged!

    I figured I'd start up a 2wd pic thread for those who dare explore in their 2wd rigs. Here's my partner sending it down Steele Pass in Death Valley. This is her 2003 GMC Sierra... somehow she hasn't blown up the G80 in the rear yet, but it's not for lack of trying.

    Post-trip vehicle inspections

    So, here's a topic I've wanted to bring up here for a while, and its pretty relevant after our latest Death Valley trip where our trucks didn't have any major mechanical issues but another truck in the group had a driveshaft CV joint go south on us. What are your post overland and off-road...

    What features does your favorite air mattress have?

    So, @Pi_Baker and I are looking for a new, larger air mattress for when we're on trips together... As our current options are either getting all the backpacking mats out (light but too thin...) or using the jeepsleep mattress which works, but its too small outside of the Jeep for the 3 of us...

    Any other VE's floating around in here?

    Anyone else a VE with any of their clubs? I've been pretty out of the loop for in-person ham stuff for a while now.... but I've been hearing ideas kicked around in some jeep and offroad focused groups about doing some 4x4 specific club stuff and maybe even helping out with doing some test...

    2020 travel destinations!

    What are some of yalls destinations for the coming year? I tend to stick to shorter trips myself, so I'm trying to push myself to get out for something longer, so I'll share some of my goals and places I want to go this year!... Sometimes its kind of hard to get my partner and the kiddo out for...

    Steel winch cable vs synthetic rope

    So I've seen a bit of back and forth on folks preference for winch rope... Not really saying which is better or not, but just throwing my experiences out and I'm curious what other experiences people have dealt with different cable types and with other winch tools. Blocks, clevises, slings...

    Tonneau cover racks?

    Anyone have any preferences or ideas for tonneau cover racks? Our GMC Sierra as an ARE hard tonneau cover over the bed and we're (ok, I'm) looking at rack options for crap we don't want in the bed or on the bedslide, like recovery gear, trashbag, mountain bike/box or two etc... I've looked at...

    Not one... BUT TWO trucks! '12 JKU and '03 GMC Sierra...

    So, i'll prob spare you all the details of YET another JKU but just give you a run down of the build of it so far... I bought it new in 2012, after our fam outgrew my XJ, I ended up picking up a new JKU with zero options, and lemme tell you, it was not an easy task to find one. A few months...
