    Agreed!! A few months ago a localish member lost his house in a fire. We wanted to start one and asked the mods and they said no. In the code of conduct, an example of an ok go fund me was literally a house fire. Like we’ve talked about before, they’re all over the place.

    Daniel,
    I believe the last guy to post on the thread is the representative or spokesperson for the family.

    I'm hoping there is a follow up post with what we can all do, such as a funding page or at least some sort of memorial thread.

    Maybe we can get some of our patch creating members or vinyl creating members to offer patches or decals with some of the proceeds going towards helping out. I'm all in for any benefit effort. I think a memorial patch or decal would be perfect.

    I'm just still shaking my head at the whole thing.

    I will definitely pass along any info here and on my other main threads.

    I have family in law enforcement and they know I worry every day about them, and you and all your brothers and sisters. I'm so glad there are brave souls like ya'll out there.

    I has paddle shifters for "manual" action. Considering recent medical events, it may be a good idea to buy AT.

    The paddles are pretty fun. If you beef up the rear sway bar and throw some sticky tires on it (that's what I did) then they're a hoot to drive.

    In a couple weeks I'm heading to an event called mid Atlantic overland festival. About 4 hours away, it's exhausting driving it long distance especially with the rack full of camping gear.
    Speaking of camping gear....I have a fridge heading my way! Dometic is a sponsor of the event so they had a special, 10% off with a free insulation cover. So pretty fair deal.
    And to make room for the fridge I played around with moving the hi lift from inside the truck to the rack.

    Ahh, makes sense. Plus it’s easy to take on and off so for 4 hours it’s worth it.

    That’s a fair deal! What size? Did you get a slide?

    4 hours each way! They will have some wheeling runs but from the videos of other years it looks pretty light.
    There's still tickets available if anyone is interested :thumbsup:
    Cfx40w.. No slide yet, haven't decided where I'm mounting it yet. Plus we will be moving it between the truck and the Subaru depending on where we camp.
    Just looking forward to no soggy food by day 4.

    Fill the tires with calcium. It adds traction. :mudding:

    So the @Mobtown Offroad front bumper comes with these braces that use the sway bar holes and hardware. Since I don’t run a swaybar, I only found 3 out of the 4 bolts needed. Today I decided to upgrade all 4 bolts to the metric equivalent of grade 8, which is class 10.9. So shiny and beefy. Bolt size is M10x1.25 30mm long
