    I prefer to pose on my hood semi nude. That really racks in the likes.

    Exact reason I keep my D rings on the bumpers at all times is the same reason I’m geared up for cross country even tho I’m just going to the grocery store. My stuff lives where it lives. Nothing has a temporary spot. With periodic visual inspection and countless use the D rings are fine to live on the bumper as anchor points, even on the east coast. It has zero to do with aesthetics. It’s like your saying why have a high lift out in the open permanently mounted when you can just throw it in the bed when you leave on trips..

    I roll with everyone as long as you're not a douche, or at least be a funny douche.... *cough* @Wheelspinner *cough*

    I've had my VT avatar since '09. Seems wrong to change now.

    All my recovery gear lives on the truck. It just lives in a dry environment, the rifle case on my roof rack. It’s nice and neat and organized, so in the event of a recovery (which typically raises stress levels) everything is ready to go. No fumbling with a frozen or rusted D ring.

    Your rebuttal would make more sense if I said to leave gear at home and only bring it on trips, but that’s not what I said.

    My plano up top somehow lets water in. Had like an 1/8th of an inch in the bottom last time. Everything lives in little organizer bins up there, but still. Never have been able to find where its coming from.

    Hoping one of my buddies can score some pelicans after his unit's CONEX comes back from Iraq next month, and maybe start fresh.

    Pelicans are definitely superior to Plano for sure. One of my planos is bone dry whereas the other lets a little moisture in. I use kitty litter in a sock to absorb it and it works pretty well.

    Yeah, but I wasn't willing to have a $250 case to secure far less than that in stuff I keep up there. Def a build difference for sure though.

    Totally agree. For my needs the Plano works very well.

    One of my buddies has a massive pelican 1690 or 1730 from his contracting days he keeps in his bed between the wheel wells. Holds all of his recovery and SAR gear, and then some. You can actually fit people in the thing.

    I’ve had a few pelicans and loved the setup for small stuff.
