We finally were able to bring home the new car. Never did we think we would want to, or be able to , order a brand new car. It's not the fanciest car, not the most desirable, but so far we love it, and have zero regrets. It was ordered with group package 14 that includes push button start, power driver seat, eyesight and cross traffic, moonroof, and adaptive cruise. As well as remote start and exterior fog lights. This is the last year of the current body style, and powertrain. It has the EJ2.0, and a 7 speed CVT transmission. Getting 30 MPG average on our 1st 3 tanks of regular fuel. Loving the 5 door and hatch. kids can get in and out real nice, and its a decent size exterior wise than the passat we were driving. On our 1st Road trip, less than 1k miles on the car, we took a rock to windshield, it will need to be replaced now as it has a 12" crack along the face. Frustrating, but what do you do. Ordered some New wheels and tires for it. Should be here mid May. Going to schedule it for tints, 35% flavor, and get it all logo'd up. Hoping this one sticks around for a few years. Bronze.

Well, another birthday trip in the books. 38 don't feel so bad when you got good company like this. We started off by being WAY too far behind on loading gear, groceries, and overall preparedness. life around the shop has kept us on our toes a bit lately, we needed this trip, to say the least. Come Noon, we were ready to set off in search of adventure. @Amanda Collins Met up with us at the house, prepared and ready for some iron tenting, we rolled out for Cottage Grove about 1pm. First stop was for fuel, and foods. we planned on trekking over the pass via FS roads and wanted to have a full tank before setting off. Burgers at Bonanza Drive Up Was less than expected, alas it filled the gut and set us off. We headed out past Dorena Lake in cottage grove. we were looking for a fire lookout up the pass. if we could get to that point, we could then drop over into Oakridge. this was the plan anyways 😁 Very quickly after leaving pavement i started to feel like i had been here before. I had! we were close to the Bohemia Mine area, My indicator, the Noonday Trail Entrance sign. cool, i know where i am. We were scouting new camp sights to pin as we lost a bunch to the fires last year, and exploring as we went. we managed to find Squatch's table. it was crazy big. it was a decent site, but not quite our style, moving on we climbed above the 1st sections of the mines. Ran into some snow that turned us around and in search of another connecting route. We were able to find a nice little spot on NF22 just a few miles from the top of the pass. We quickly made camp and killed it for the night. On our way out of town (cottage grove) @GasHole called to request a pin for camp. He wanted to come out on Saturday, bring the kiddos, and hang out for the night and following day. Saturday morning we booked down the hill to get Kevin the PIN and radio numbers. we had to go all the way back to Dorena lake to get cell service, that's we unexpected, but the message was passed. he was already in Coburg on his way! woop woop, back to camp. #CampGoldClaim Had been established Breakfast Burrito Cheers! After we were BIG chillin most of the rest of the day. in our haste to get out we had forgot a few little things. like and Axe, lighter fluid, charcoal, pants 👀, you know. Alas, we were getting by just fine. Kevin rolled into camp with the kiddos not 20 minutes after we got back, i swear. The wood in this area is a fight this time of year, it took us a few to get the right logs selected. we were cutting them to smaller lengths and splitting them with my hatchet and short handled sledge. after a few hrs of fighting, we had a nice coal bed and was burning rounds. Sunday morning we broke camp and headed for the Oakridge side. I wanted to find a route through to Hill Creek Reservoir, i grew up boating on this rez and wanted to find a connecting route for overlanding, camping, trails, and watersports. ISO fire lookout. . . Not down there myke 😁 Finally, after and exhausting 35 minute drive over the pass. We found it! Ended the day here letting the kiddos swim, and play. we knew it was going to be hot in town and we were in no hurry to get back to the pavement. i grew up here so seeing and hearing my kids play and have fun was a wonderful experience. the reservoir was a little low for this time of year, but it makes for warm waters later on in the summer. we are for sure looking forward to coming back and staying a day or 3 here. to end the trip we went in search of fried chicken, a staple and landmark of a trip well done at the lake. we got beat to the punch, no chicken left, and the jojos we slim Pickens. DQ, here we come. Thanks for coming out guys, it was a wonderful way to spend the weekend. I hope to see you, and you, here very soon. Open thread! Please add your pics or start a new one of your own. Bronze.

We got the call the other day asking about a Camaro build. The car in question was a 2002 Camaro SS, 90k miles, 6speed, and seemed to be well taken care of. We discussed the viability of the build, what's its potential would be, and weather or not it was going to be a good pickup. Fast forward a couple days and i got word the build is a go. First up, here is the car. So what's the plan? Fast, fun & reliable. won't be tracking it all the time, so it should not break down often. A 450-500hp car with the increased frame stiffness, traction and handling, and this thing will be loads of fun, both on and off the track. Brakes, Suspension, and yes, we will be tearing into that LS1 to squeeze a little more out of her than she came with from the factory. First step is researching what sub frame connectors, k member, rear torque arm, and rear panhard bar setup we want to run. Suspension Package: Watts Link: https://www.bmrsuspension.com/index.cfm?page=products&vehicleid=6&catid=345&productid=1489 & Billet Pivot: https://www.bmrsuspension.com/index.cfm?page=products&vehicleid=6&catid=345&productid=1646 $830 $190 Rear Lower Control Arms: https://www.umiperformance.com/home/product/1982-2002-gm-f-body-tubular-adjustable-lower-control-arms/ $220 $12 bolts Rear Torque Arm and Transmission Crossmember: https://www.umiperformance.com/home/product/1993-2002-gm-f-body-torque-arm-combo-kit-manual/?attribute_pa_color=red $611 Sub Frame Connectors: https://www.bmrsuspension.com/index.cfm?page=products&vehicleid=6&catid=146&productid=1399 $500 Driveshaft tunnel brace: https://www.bmrsuspension.com/index.cfm?page=products&vehicleid=6&catid=143&productid=252 $80 That's a total of $2443 Now we need to address the front suspension, shocks all around, sway bars, and shocks/springs all around. Front suspension ultimate package: $3500 This can be tamed down if we step back an echelon. BUT, this kit is also the top cheese, and would narrow down a lot of things. Rear sway bar: https://www.umiperformance.com/home/product/82-02-gm-f-body-rear-drag-sway-bar/ $430 Sway bar bracket upgrade: $130 for rear springs and shocks id like to do a custom mount and totally different aftermarket coil over. more to come on this later. this covers everything we need, unless inserting other front suspension options D/T cost. Total so far: $6503 rear coil over and mount setup to go on suspension. Feel free to weigh in, this is a client build, but the offer has been extended for you to weigh in, and help wrench/be a part of the project as a community. fell free to jump in here. its going to be one helluva project! Bronze.

Alright people, I'm turning a year younger in a week or so, I've been wanting to explore the Oakridge area, and we have some free time on the calendar to put together a camp trip. So here goes! Meet in Cottage Grove, Oregon Friday May 14th at 2PM ish. The plan is to meet up for food somewhere in cottage grove, chill a bit, group up, then head out. This will; be a semi overlanding style trip as we do not know where exactly we will be staying Friday and/or Saturday night. After foods and meetup we will depart (3-3:30pm ish) friday, Down Row River Road past Dorena Lake. The road turns to Brice Creek Rd, then NF-22. There are several camps and dispersed sites along the way. i will be posting GPS pins for hot spots and landmarks to check out along the way, here in the near future. Plan on Exiting the forest either the way we came, or (preferred) we punch out somewhere in the area of Hills Creek Reservoir, then down to Oakridge for some foods on the way out. High clearance SUV or crossover required. Subie ect would be fine. it will me mostly gravel with some potential for snow and or washouts. be prepared. CB Channel 4, handhelds discussed at driver meting. We will be in #TheMotherShip with the Comanche trailer in tow most likely. Hope to see you there, post up below with comments questions or concerns. if you would like to participate, register and post up below. See ya in Cottage Grove! Bronze.

Lets talk CB radio tec' Im going to be ordering a new radio setup for MotherShip. i know id like to install a PA capable unit, aw well as something that has some sort of rf gain and external mic. BUT Handhelds units have been on my mind and work surprisingly well for the time i have gotten to use them. not getting into the HAM conversation, what are your opinions of cb setups and radios. id like a DUAL antenna setup, on one of the following radios. https://www.amazon.com/Cobra-29NW-Professional-Radio-Electroluminescent/dp/B00006JPF4/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2XG8D123CFICS&dchild=1&keywords=cb+radio&qid=1619325972&sprefix=cb%2Caps%2C228&sr=8-4 amazon.com/Cobra-29LTD-Professional-Radio-Calibration/dp/B00006JPF2/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=2XG8D123CFICS&dchild=1&keywords=cb%2Bradio&qid=1619326001&sprefix=cb%2Caps%2C228&sr=8-1-spons&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExOU1YQTQ5SFJMVTUwJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMTQwNDAwM01KOTFVN1JIM05WRyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNzcyMTAxMlBBVFI0NVozU1JKNyZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU&th=1 id also like to know ones opinion on the European RF amplifiers. im looking into something with a boost range of 30 to 100w Output. would i need a better antenna for a setup like this. curious about amplified setups too.

This Years Snow camp Hosted By Www.NiksonOverland.Com Will be kicking off on Thursday night. February 20th. Dont know about the campout? Read this trip report: https://www.riderevival.club/forum/trip-reports/defender-of-the-fatherland-day-olallie-lake Watch this video. We will be meeting in Esticada Oregon at 6pm Thursday at The Old Mill restaurant. (150 sw Frontage Rd) For a good Hot "stick to your ribs" kinda meal. After Dinner we will head up the mountain. The destination? Olallie Meadows Cabin. It will take some time to get there in the night, We get there when we get there, Thursday nights adventures always turn out to be good ones! We will be staying at or around the cabin area all weekend. Sunday is the return date. I will be gone from Camp Late Friday night, through Saturday. I will be will be back in camp late Saturday night. I plan to come home with the group Sunday morning. (personal family stuff) Please review the trip reports and videos from years past, they will help you know what to expect and prepare for. Key Notes! Extra fuel: 10 GAL! Snow wheeling takes a toll on the fuel, dont be that guy, go prepared for heavy fuel consumption. LP/Propane gas: If you plan to burn a tent heater, or portable fire pit (ill have mine) bring plenty of extra LP gas. I was shocked how much propane we used last year. i will be 45lbs deep on propane, and an extra 10gal of fuel. Water and cold stuffs. Remember it will be below freezing the entire time we are there. your jugs will freeze, your drink will freeze, and you will be out. Plan to keep liquids in your car to avoid this, plan your foods accordingly, and have a place to keep them. i usually use a simple food box or toat. Gear/Clothes. Remember it will be Sub ZERO at night. If you are planning on using your rig as a backup to sleep in. AND/OR use its heater. Go VERY prepared for that. they are made from steel, suspended in the air, and take a LOT of fuel to idle overnight. Dont be "That Guy" bring enough fuel. Your gear should be rated a 15* below anything you plan to expose yourselves to. sleeping gear included. Bring your sleeping setup, bring extra dry clothes, and a good attitude. There will be plenty of fun to be had, and learning opportunities along the way. that for sure!! I will have the snow shelter up there, and i will be dragging my overland trailer. please, do not rely on it for your sleeping shelter! if your thinking you want to throw a caught up in there. please post that up below, there will be limited space. Cooking will be done outside. Finally, Bring a good attitude, and a willingness to make friends, jump outside your comfort zone, and a big jar of patience with you. No telling how the weekend will go. Be willing to Run SUB 5 psi in your tires, have an air compressor, gloves, boots, shovel, strap, and misc hand tool (just encase) The snow last year was impassable above 6psi. Even in my fully locked up jeep on 35" tires. No stock rigs, please have a decent setup for snow wheeling. if you are asking yourself "will i make it in my X*X*X*" You wont, grab a seat, or wait for a more mild snow wheeling trip. This is for seasoned members. we can start discussions below about sleeping arrangements, Joint foods/Meal Prep, and or any questions we may have. Looking forward to seeing you out in the snow for the weekend. its my 1st trip of the year. Take care guys! Bronze.

I have been asked this a Few times so i figured id give a run down of how to get a decent lift put together for the jeep Cherokee and what i would do if i had another stock platform to work with. First off, get a set of used Chevy S10 leaf springs. Use a band saw and cut the mounting bushings off, throw this under the main leaf of your factory leaf pack. You will need to source longer center pins. I use grade 8 bolts, cheap and easy top find. http://i.imgur.com/yHnf33J.jpg https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTDwdgxvQOSzKjNuVCgMV9iyV4gStYDSrW8GXpgCvQBlB149F01 Bolt this "Bastard Pack" back in and it should be good for around 4" of lift in the rear. For the front, you can source a Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ, equipped with the v8. Grab the front springs (good for 1.5" of lift and a stiffer spring rate) and grab the front steering system. (tie rod and drag link) This steering is a huge improvement over stock, and retains the factory geometry. source yourself a 2" front spring spacer, or if you stack stock spring pads, they are good for about .5" of lift each. 4 pads, 2" lift. At this point you will be down to shocks and a adjustable track bar and bracket. I prefer the Skyjacker M-95 series shock. they are mono tube, gas charged, and very good on pricing. if it were me, id spend the coin here to get a better than basic shock setup. come take a ride in my xj, you will see what i mean. Adjustable track bar. i would shop around a bit. Always get a track bar with a bushing on one end! the front end eats up heim joints, and with them at both ends it wont be long. something like this is what i would recommend. it has the TRE on one side and a bushing on the other. this will let you keep the factory track bar bracket and not have to spent more coin on a new aftermarket one. Just make sure to re torque the bracket after the new parts install! https://www.amazon.com/Rough-Country-7572-Country-7572-Front-Adjustable/dp/B00B2AF0MU/ref=sr_1_1?hvadid=177600321358&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9032993&hvnetw=g&hvpos=1t2&hvqmt=b&hvrand=13299461255752516783&hvtargid=kwd-2426452473&keywords=jeep+cherokee+adjustable+track+bar&qid=1554613330&s=gateway&sr=8-1 In short Junk yard: S10 leaf springs V8 ZJ Front steering, and coil springs New or JY: Front 2" Coil Spring spacers. New: Adjustable Track Bar (TRE and bushing style) Shocks for 3.5 to 4.5" lift of your choosing. (you get what you pay for in on road ride quality) Thanks it! Hope it helps, post up with questions. there are a few things id do quickly there after, but this gives a ncie place to start. Take Care, Thanks For Being Here! Bronze.

~Radio Operation Guidelines~ When making a radio call use the persons name Or nick name as your first call. “Joe Smith!” Then wait for a response. . . It may take a few seconds for them to pick up and respond so be patient. We are all working or controlling vehicles. The response When/if you hear your name is called over should be a simple “Yeah Go Ahead” You should then begin your conversation with out delay. This will give plenty of time for people to respond, and make it very clear who you are trying to get a hold of. Radio confusion is counter productive to the tools use. Please respect them! 1: No Swearing! If you wouldn’t say it in church, don’t say it over that radio. Period. 2: Keep Your conversations As Brief As Possible. The longer you are on the airways, the less we can get through to other team members. Sometimes speed of communication is key. 3: No radio calls to persons within visual distance. If you have line of sight with them, please make the effort to communicate with them directly. 4: All #TeamRideRevival Radios handed out to participants must stay on their persons and turned on, at all times!!! This is crucial to safety! If there is an emergency, we need to be able to get a hold of key team members at any given time. Additional Notes: Because we strongly suggest you equip your vehicle with a CB radio, and are asking each person to acquire and carry a hand held FRS radio (walkie talkie), please leave in vehicle communications between group members to that equipment. We want to be using the team radios for field use as much as possible. *Will Not Apply To Street Car Events* *Use Team Radios For All Emergency Communications. Contact the “Trail Leader” ASAP* Thank You Bronze

Well it has been a while since i posted on the actual forum. I wanted this post to be more for the core group members. I feel like we have a solid foundation of members now. And i am very excited for our next steps. SWAG, I know many people are looking forward to purchasing #TeamRideRevival Swag. In hopes of kicking off the future store, and also giving me the ability to continue to do giveaways id like to throw up a pool. a kickstarter of sorts. if we can collect enough i will be able to round up a few different swag items, give a some away at event, do some game prizes, and start a store stock at the same time. Does your donation guarantee you an item, no. i dont want you to be misinformed here. If you are interested in participating, or can find it in your heart to donate to the cause. here is the link to the pool. https://paypal.me/pools/c/8bOdWRS1Xj I will use and keep all funds from this separate from all other RideRevival finances and functions. the size and quality of the items, for the time being, will depend on the success of the pool. eventually it will self sustain, and i will always bring you the swag at the lowest price point I can. this is not about profits for me. i have a day job ;) Thank you for coming to check out where we are with swag. i appreciate your involvement more than you know.
