It had been in the 70 for the lat few weeks, and then WHAMO tow nights in the 30s. Although I did cover my plants, I now have ...

Re: Offroad and Rally Lights

a lot of the truckers In Alaska drive with two sets of the Lightforce 240 Blitz I used to drive between Deanli and Anchorage a lot and made the mistake of pissing off an oncoming truck. My retinas were not very happy afterwards. They are quite nice to drive behind though, even when following the sem...

Re: The Cinder Block Loses a Wheel VIDEO ON P. 15

Dose that ram have a 12 valve in it?!?!?! If so my vote is to swap it in there. Then get you a dual tank setup and you are ready for the apocolipse. :crazy: As far as the QT, I think BJs still sells part time conversions for them.

Re: "The Cinder Block" (64 Jeep Gladiator) Now with ZS logos

Any updates on the truck? I just got mine the other day. It's a 74 J20 witha 401. I'm in the process of striping it down and cleaning it all up right now. I have a request. Mine came with no headliner at all. I was wondering if you had a headliner in yours and if so could you post a picture so I kno...

Re: Realities of your Survival Location

I wish I would have though of asking about this when I was there late last year. A few of us had to go through all the clearance crap to go on their land because we have a few gas wells we operate next to the plant. One thing is for sure. They are well armed. VERY, well armed.

Re: Power Generation Suggestions for a ranch

If your house has 200 amp service and you wanted to run everything (200 amps@ 240volts = 48 kw) so a 50 kw generator is what you need. A battery bank to supply this level of power for a 24 hour period would be massive (800 4-d batteries @ $300 each). If on the other hand you find you can make do wi...

Re: Power Generation Suggestions for a ranch

But be careful, batteries get damaged by high heat, so make sure they are in a room that won't get higher than 100 degrees F. I suspect that during winter in Alaska this is not going to be a problem. :lol: Lol yea, getting really hot won't be an issue, Even inside a small shipping container i don't...

You might look into that aluminum backed bubble wrap. It dose great for blocking heat/cold. Dosn't do crap for sound dampening. Also there is that super therm paint stuff..

What about the AR-57? It packs a bit more punch than a .22 but in that configuration takes up less space. You can reload them if you want, and 4 mags would give you 200 rounds. This is waht im planning on getting. they even sell the SBR versions. granted you have to go through all the paper work of ...

These tings are great. I have carried them in my pack for about 3 years now. Much better than packing a big clunky roll of TP. They dont take much moisture to loosen them up.
