  1. Good call on the inaccurate URL for the SuperDurometer bushings (fixed it!) and the question about the tire pressure (I fixed that too!). That sentence SHOULD have read... "As an example, I run around 24psi in my 33" tires.". The more volume inside of the tire, the less air pressure is needed to support the same weight. If you double the volume, you'd need half the pressure. Thanks, Kevin

  3. Ready to save some $$$$ on your project? Diane, Kristofer, and Kevin (from KevinsOffroad.com) have partnered up to offer an 8% savings coupon code, exclusively for members of Offroad Passport! On top of the member discount, KevinsOffroad.com gives you 5% back toward your next order. Here's how it works: Order #1, you save 8% using coupon code ORP-591 at checkout Order #2, you are credited 5% of Order #1, AND THEN GET ANOTHER 8% OFF when you use the ORP-591 coupon code again, for a grand total of 13% off. Order #3 and on...same as Order #2...saving you a TON of money on your build! (and that's ON TOP of the sale price!!!) Example: WJ Grand Cherokee Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier Retail price is $1546.00 Sale price is $1305.97 Put in the ORP-591 discount code, and get $104.48 off your total. (8%) Check out, and then your account will automatically be credited $60.07 in KOR Bucks, to spend on your next order. Stacking savings is awesome! And, this applies to Roof Racks, Tire Carriers, Steering Box Braces, Winch Bumpers, Rocker Panel Protection and other skid plates, Long Arm kits, and a bunch of other Overlanding gear as well. We're a local company...we have been in Arizona since Kevin started the company in 1999 in his garage, designing and building 100% of the products by hand, until years later when CNC machines and a "modular approach" to manufacturing, as well as selling other quality manufacturers gear, was put into place. We were already specialists in Grand Cherokees, Cherokees, Wranglers, and Rams...and are now taking on Toyotas as well. Our warehouse is in Glendale, and KOR-manufactured parts CAN be picked up locally. Some manufacturers only give us 19% resellers discount...so some of these items will literally be sold at our cost to you guys...but, we love Offroad Passport and what they do, and love supporting local clubs...thank you for becoming a member and spending time exploring with the group! I'm looking forward to meeting you on a trail run soon!! KevinsOffroad.com is where to find us. We're looking forward to helping you out. :-) -Kevin | KevinsOffroad.com
  4. Thanks, Scott. Yeah, I was a bit apprehensive about building out a rig with as many miles as this one had, however, I knew that the frame was solid, the Dana 60 front and Dana 70 rear were solid, and that I could rebuild the Cummins when I needed to. The trans was rebuilt some time before I purchased it...and shifts just fine...but I plan to monitor it and rebuild it as quickly as it begins to act up. With little to no electronical gadgetry (mechanical injection, very few computers...), I figure having sensor issues and wiring problems is not highly likely. Also, replacement parts are prevalent, EVERYWHERE...as you might imagine. It's as easy as buying parts for a 70's Ford truck...you can find them in any auto parts house. There were a bunch of them made, so there's still enough demand for those parts for parts houses to keep them in stock...and the 6BT Cummins engine was used in tractors, generators, pumps, trucks, etc for a LOT of years, and very widely across the Americas...which means that I should be able to find parts, and mechanics able to work on it, regardless of what Country I happen to be in. It was a calculated risk...but I figured that finding a low-mile 1994-1998 12-valve (with mechanical injection) was not likely to be time well spent, lol.
  5. Hey there, Al. Actually, I did tour through Virginia City on my way to the Gold Country meetup, when we were up there together. Not sure if you heard the story or not, but Woody and Sherman stuck a dollar bill on my windshield when they saw my unattended rig parked in Virginia City, and then made up a story that there was a rumor of a local hitman who would warn people he was coming after them by putting a dollar bill on their windshield, lol. Love those guys!!
  6. Did a video on our "virgin" Cummins Ram Overlanding Expedition Rig...has been a fun build so far!
  7. Sorry, didn't realize sooner that this was also OX16 weekend...will need to drop off the attendee list. I'm bummed...sounds like an awesome trip. Next time! Kevin
  8. We had a GREAT time hanging out with you guys! Thank you so very much for your hospitality, for warmly welcoming me into the group, and for putting on such a fun event! I'm looking forward to the next run. Thanks again, Kevin - KOR
