  1. From another forum https://www.costco.com/5-lbs.-steel-propane-cylinder-with-opd-valve-%26-built-in-gauge.product.100734956.html If your looking for one this seems like a good deal considering Home Depot is getting almost $60 for a std. 20 lb tank
  2. Here’s a new backpacking meal that I tried a couple weeks ago on my latest Grand Canyon backpack trip. I started with this package of instant potatoes. I know what you’re thinking, “instant potatoes” Yuk! My wife is one heck of a cook and when she said “I’d eat those” I knew it was a winner You will need to bring two cups of water to a boil. While the water was being heated I dumped two packages of this chicken into the water. Remove the boiling water with the chicken from the stove. Stir in the potatoes. Add this package of bacon bits. Let the concoction sit for one minute and serve. My sister (that eats like a bird) and I had no problem eating the whole 4oz package. Tasted great! This meal checks a lot of boxes: Quick, no soaking (rehydrating) necessary Not much water required Very little stove fuel needed ( No ten minute simmer etc.) Light, easy to carry, ingredients Not much trash bulk Filling Tasty (mmm bacon) Chicken adds a lot of protein Easy clean up (wipe out the pot with tortilla) I would make this again in a heartbeat.
  3. I’m not sure exactly what inserts goose gear uses but I’m going to assume you used a pronged tee nut to secure your fridge slide. Not trying to be “that guy” but I’m going to show you what I ended up doing on the DIY base board in my LJ that I used to own. This shows the slide minus the fridge. Here is a shot of the bottom of the baseboard. I installed my tee nuts in a counterbore to keep them below the face of the p,y wood. Early on one of the tee nuts dropped loose from the base board when nothing was screwed into it. Not a difficult repair but a bit time consuming. When I fixed the loose insert I bedded it in epoxy and while I was at it I embedded the rest of the nuts the same way. My issue might well have been a fluke but I thought I’d mention this to you.
  4. Good looking table Kris. Your modifications are a great addition. I especially like the added fasteners and casters. Nice review and write up, as always.
  5. Happy Birthday John
  6. Excellent review Kris! Its real world advice like this that makes this site so useful. Whose welding table are you using in the last pic?
  7. A quick trailhead check of your alternator if you get access to a volt meter this weekend Key on, vehicle engine not running, battery voltage at the battery posts should read approx. 12.5 volts. Start the engine and the voltage should increase to close to 14 volts.
  8. Thank you Kris. Very helpful as always. I apologize for the derail. I love to see Brady “hands on” with the mods on his Jeep.
  9. Thank you Kris. Ever seen any decent installations with a stand alone screen?
  10. Does the rear view camera use the stock rear view mirror as a screen? Details?
  11. @SonoranWanderer Thanks for the info to “Cable Ties and More”. Interesting you mention Chrysler spec loom product, the last loom I ordered from Amazon just did “feel” like the product that I used to use at work. ??? I’m going to give your vendor a try. BTW: It may be me but I can only see your first pic in the above post
  12. Your 3 part animation is the best light comparison I’ve ever seen. You should think about getting into the IT field.
  13. Well thought out, clean installation (as usual)
  14. I’ll bet you were waaaay more careful and observant than the average lube tech. Glad that it seems like you have a handle on the problem
