While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    I had a window decal worked up. I'm pretty happy with it.

    1977 Honda CB750fourK with some mods. Home-welded rear rack, 25mm ammo can panniers, Panasonic video camera case trunk, 5600 original miles. Second owner. This is my first motorcycle and I'm loving it. The weather here has been great lately and I've added 1500 miles in the 5 weeks I've owned it.

    It was traded for an Enfield Mk5 and a Turley so, is extra bushcrafty for that reason.

    Celebrated 21 years this year - I've owned it for 12 of those 1994 Toyota Hi Lux SR5 (at least that's what they call them here in Aussie) and "oops" moment from a couple of months back.

    I did a quick update to the Colorado over the weekend. Since winter is coming I added a mount and an avalanche shovel to the bed of my truck.
    Pardon the crappy cell phone pictures.
    [​IMG]
    I bought myself a $20 collapsible back country shovel off of amazon. It feels vastly superior to my old plastic shovel that shattered one day when it was really cold out.
    [​IMG]
    I installed a set of Quick Fist hard rubber clamps to the under side of my aluminum tonnau cover rails.
    [​IMG]
    And the shovel fits nice and tight up under the lip of the cover, is in easy reach, and I didn't have to put any holes in the bed of the truck.

    That, sir, is one sexy truck. I'm still wondering if I should have just taken the dive and gone full sized rather than the Colorado...

    '73 Chevy K20. 350SB (original, never cracked open) 4spd with Granny gear, Dana 60/14 bolt with Detroit locker rear and cable lock front, planetary gear transfer case.
    About the only thing that does me in is fuel- 8mpg! However- my winter plans include building a new fuel cell(s) that will hold 40gals

    First of all a hearty thanks for all who posted pics of their rides throughout this entire thread. Looks like a complete and interesting cross section of off road vehicles.

    Coming a bit late for me I had recently acquired an 87 Suzuki Samurai hard top with the intent to trick her out some. Now with decreased health I just drive it around every now and then.

    Even so it is a fun little truck and only wish I could have gotten it a few years ago.

    It may not be a lifted truck, but it gets me to the bush. My feet take me from the trailhead. This is from this year at Fish Creek Pond in Tupper Lake.

    I bought this a few months ago but have not touched it till last week .Been looking for a 4.0 Cherokee for a while and fount this one with 100K miles on it pretty cheap.

    Just added a 2.5" lift , new shocks and 265/70/17 General Grabbers mounted on JK wheels. I really have not had time to take it off road yet but it handled foot deep snow drifts this week like a champ. Sometime this Winter its going to get some better lighting and I want to fab up a spare tire carrier/Hi-Lift jack mount for the rear.

    2012 Tacoma 4x4, bone stock except taller (and better :4:) tires (265/70/17)- I've owned several full size 3/4 ton 4x4's and I can say with certainty it's much more off road capable than any of my previous trucks

    Swapped out- had the old Chevy truck---

    '89 YJ. Converted to carb, ICM gone, QuadraTrak replaced with mechanical actuator, cable locked up front and limited slip chunk in the rear.
    It needs a little work here and there however, I am well pleased!

    This is my Bushcraft / Camping / Expedition / Go to the Store / Get me to Work / 'EDC' vehicle! :p Unfortunately, my toy vehicle budget went away when we had to start buying cars for our kids. Two down, one to go. So maybe in a few more years I will be able to get a new 'Toy' besides my daily driver.

    These are from a couple of different trips to Colorado, over the last couple of years (we go every summer).

    We have one of these also, had one for 11 years and when it got kinda long in the tooth we bought a new one in 2012, great 4 wheeler, not the best off road as you say but really does everything well and is totally bulletproof!!

    I sure miss my Rav4 every now and then. It was a great car camping vehicle and if it had slightly more aggressive tires on it, it probably woulda been a pretty decent off roader for my purposes. Plus that v6 had some serious zip.

    I as well went with the tacoma TRD however mine is the off road which after a lot of research I deem it to be better suited for off road since it has the locking rear diff and underbody skid plates

    Picked this up in Atlanta and drove home to Missouri a couple of weeks ago. 1987 Jeep Cherokee. In line 6, auto tranny and select trac 4x4. Delivered to me at the airport with 56934 miles! Now to do a little set up on it. Start with a little bit taller tires and a top rack for a canoe and gear.
