    So I have a scenario and question to pose: I am awaiting delivery of a 2016 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab (TRD Off-Road) truck. I mention this because I plan on making this a multi-purpose Bug Out Vehicle. It'll primarily be a commuter vehicle, but also as an incognito BOV if and when the time...

    Just getting opinions on the best vehicle for **** hits the fan occasions. I had a 88 full size blazer that I believe would have been very good. Pros: It was reliable, easy to fix, no built in gps, 4x4 (very capable), seat 4-5, also could be used like a truck. Cons: Gas Guzzler, Not an actual...

    Being stranded on the side of the road can suck. Driving with a small spare tire instead of a full size tire sucks. Using a tire repair kit is a great way to get back on the road quickly without having to remove your tire. Has this situation ever happened to you? Have you ever used a...

    I started out with my Jeep Wrangler being mostly stock. It was used and the previous owner had put all terrain tires and a two inch lift on it. It is a 2006 4.0 Wrangler X, 6 speed manual, six cylinder. The only problem i have ever had was when the radiator fan failed and that was a simple fix...

    I have always wanted a truck project. Something that I could rebuild, add some custom features, fix up and call my own. When friends and family members come over I would tell them all about the truck, what I did to it, the attention to detail, and just brag on my accomplishment. There is just...

    I had to to redo this threat. I think I was tired when i did the last one. I have a truck and a bicycle but i work 5 miles from my job. So I choose to keep my truck at work and ride my bicycle back and forth to work. The question is, "How about you all"? Some Argue that "THIS IS AMERICA AND...

    I have a new project to work on, and that project is a 1999 Toyota Tacoma 4-wheel drive. A few weeks ago a buddy of mine and his wife invited my wife and I over to their house for a shrimp boil. While we enjoying good company and good food my buddy pointed out a Toyota Tacoma his daughters...

    What do you think the best vehicle for a BOV is. Please back the reason up with viable info not just personal biases. Thank you!

    With the free set of traction tires I got for the dually, the 3 years worth of dehydrated food (see my other vids) and truckloads of other free scores on CL I have only a grand out of pocket for at last count $18000 worth of auto and gear. I will one day pull all the gear out of the basement...

    Today, my fiancee and I found a 1978 Chevrolet C30 Wrecker just up the road for 1,500 bucks! :eek: The thing runs, and the boom works. The question is...would this be a good vehicle for SHTF? You could tow a camper, tow another vehicle, etc., the only drawback I can see is that it probably gets...

    I am looking to buy a diesel BOV. Something 1990s or earlier, manual transmission, 4x4, with little or no electronics. It seems it will have to be a pick up or SUV. Pre 1998 Dodge RAM is first in the list but any car will do. It seems options are limited so I am considering buying any...

    What do you think is the best vehicle to bug out for you personally? Jeep Wrangler?

    No doubt this will stir up some controversy, but I see and personally know a few people that spend thousands of dollars modding 4WD vehicles and essentially turning them into battle wagons. While I can't deny that the vehicles are very bad a$$, I just see too many "what if's". If you live...

    Basics of EMP for Dummies It has become evident there is much confusion as to the scale of electromagnetic pulse effect. For the purposes of this discussion I will avoid the social impact and affect of an EMP event. Instead I would like to help wash away some of the ignorance of the manner...

    So I was thinking about electric cars. I don't know very much about physics but I do know that perpetual motion defies the laws of physics. A while back I thought why not use an alternator to recharge the batteries while in use, but you lose some energy when you convert motion to electricity...

    What are some of your ideas on bug out vehicles. I have a wife and three kids and am at this time unable to move to a BOL. I am looking into a different vehicle and was thinking about either a truck or a late 60's early 70's Bronco. Any suggestions?
