If you have wheeled your rig, even in moderate settings, you know that traction is everything. All the power and driving skill in the world is for not if you can’t get it to the ground. There are MANY different differential upgrades that can be... Read more

While piloting Tim Toyota (the 1976 Toyota FJ40 Landcruiser we saved from becoming a permanent backyard ornament), we have been described as Homer Simpson-esque, comically bamboozling our way along a trail inadvertently smashing everything in, or... Read more

Ever notice that certain phrases in online For Sale ads seem to be the epitome of disaster? You can practically smell your money burning as you scan an ad for a project rig that calmly recites what you know are toxic proclamations. Some of our... Read more

Ah yes, the lowly exhaust system, a vehicular equivalent to the human colon. We will excuse ourselves from any gaseous dad jokes and simply state that it is the unsung champion of a properly working engine… and body. A properly working system... Read more

A few issues ago we had complained about the unsanitary condition that humans under the age of 12 bring to the inside of a vehicle. Unlike Grandmas house of plastic wrapped furniture and her demands that shoes be taken off at the front door, we... Read more

Just because you throw a roof top tent on a truck, does it make it an overland vehicle? We don’t think so. But here are some of our favourite trucks that we would take on a weeklong adventure. We would have to add overland gear to some of these... Read more

We put on our super picky blinders and picked out our top trail rides that we would love to own and drive ‘as is’. There were at least a hundred we could drive, but not many would stay ‘as shown’ on the show floor before we ripped off the... Read more

Yes, this is an eclectic mix, but you would appreciate these trucks too, after a week awash in a sea of ‘let’s take a JL and throw a tent on the roof’ that will never spend a night under the stars. Read more

The lowly carburetor has been feeding internal combustion engines since their invention. As a reactionary device just trying to feed the motor they were strapped to, they worked well, until said motor started moving… like in a truck.  Sloshing... Read more

Maybe it’s just “us”, but does it feel like winter is perpetually coming? It just seems like all we do is prepare ourselves for the wrath of the cold that is bestowed on us every fall, and finally leaves at the end of spring only giving a... Read more

As we saunter through the halls of SEMA every year we are presented with a myriad of off road and truck products from every aspect of the “sport”. Some are purely aesthetic; others are strictly “Get’er’dun” engineered, but most fall somewhere in... Read more

The ever-transpiring game of off road “catch up” has us strapping on bigger tires, bolting on heavier armor, applying more power and upgrading driveline components to our rigs in order to keep up with the crowds in the woods with turn key trail... Read more

We were enamored at SEMA 2017 with the variety of off-road rigs in attendance. Sure, the glittered up, unibrow JK’s were breeding in the off season with chromed out one-ton deer stands, but the quality oversea trail runners were a spectacle to... Read more

Our buddy Colin has been snooping around for a good, used winch that won’t break the bank to saddle on his trail rig. While buying a name-brand, used winch can save some money, you really have to question why the seller is getting rid of it... Read more

We knew when we laid eyes on our 1976 Toyota FJ40 Landcruiser, aka “Tim Toyota,” it had some corrosion issues. After dragging it home and looking deeper, and on occasion through Tim’s sheet metal, it became apparent just how bad it was... Read more

Lead Addicted to Dirt Pt 3

photos by Bryan Irons

Open top, no-door vehicular trail riding is an experience that can’t be really spoken or written accurately about, so its best to enjoy it first-hand to gain a sense of true off-roading. As the build on our friend Zoran’s 2015 Jeep JK progressed... Read more
