    Pelican style cases

    I you the weight later today. it will fit under a cover when laid down on its back, not standing up. I was looking at putting some of the Milwaukee packout feet on mine so it would clip into the base plates I have mounted to the floor.

    North Carolina Raptor Group meet up / Ride

    I’m in east TN, but would drive for a good meet up/off-road weekend. I lived in Asheville for a while, there’s a trail right off I40 near the TN line, Hurricane creek. It’s been a while since I drove it, and back then it could be tight in areas. I do know of a couple easyish trails in northern...

    Raptor Swaps

    Yup. To run any Gen 2 front shock on ANY f150, the coil bucket needs to be replaced. It’s not a hard swap to do, I think Camburg is even a bolt in design….but I’d feel better about welding it in. But the Gen 1 shock fits perfect and has full travel.

    Raptor Swaps

    Gen 1 shocks fit the 2105 and up F150 coil bucket. The longer Gen 2 shocks need to have the coils buckets removed and new ones (KHC, CAMBURG, ETC) welded or bolted in to allow for full travel. I have a 2018 F150, with a full raptor swap. Gen 1 shocks and springs up front, all Gen 2 control arms...

    4WD ACTION 4X4 from Australia (non Raptor video)

    Love watching those guys. the one that does the “off grid” spin off is very entertaining and always has some amazing scenery.

    Anyone with Blendmount and ****** Max 360?

    I have a MaxCam with a blendmount in my truck and have zero issues with the GPS signal. I’d say mine is further away from the windshield than yours is……and I have a dark tinted windshield too. I had a GOS problem with an older 9500x I believe. Sent it back to ****** and they reprogrammed it...

    Interior Windshield Light Bar

    I’ve installed quite a few of those from SoundOff, Whelen also offers them…..they are interior light bars for emergency vehicles. Typically seen in red/blue, but available in pretty much any color. Several flags patterns (25+) plus steady burn. Interior light bars like that really are not meant...

    GEN 2 Transmission Failure while being towed

    I have towed my 2018 over 30,000 miles and have not had any issues with dead batteries or transmission failures. Here is why, and why I did. First, a charge line is a MUST! It connects from the motorhome trailer plug to a one way breaker and then to the battery. The breaker allows for wire...

    Diamond Back HD Molle Panels

    Yeah I made that mistake once before. Had the drivers door lock twisted. I didnt have anything of value inside. Yes, SA is rough.

    Diamond Back HD Molle Panels

    I have one and I love it. Got the SE since I didn’t see ever needing to load anything heavy on top of it. I can stand on top of it and it doesn’t budge, and I’m at 250 lbs. I was on the fence for a long time as well, even did a soft roll up cover for a while. But the DB is definitely one of the...

    RH-262 Thermostat Housing

    I was just getting on here to reply to you. The dealer I visit in FL has a couple of them in stock, and will sell me one if you need it. I’d buy it and have to ship it to you. I will be back down there on Monday and can get it out if you’d like.

    RH-262 Thermostat Housing

    The engines are the same, that’s very odd that I was able to get mine done. I will ask in the morning and see what I can find out. Might get lucky.
