Road Legal 4WD Forums

The forums of the Road Legal 4WD Association, members, chapters and clubs.
Many folks have no idea what it takes to keep a site like this up to snuff with the latest updates and security protocols. This thread will be updated when we update things so our members can see what we're doing behind the scenes....

Here's a great example of underbody protection and how much coverage something like this has on the limos. I've been pretty careful not to screw up the underside of the JL to make an install of something like this far less work. You can g...
Who uses Ham on the trails? I'm thinking that this would be the best communication radio for groups over a large area (which most trails are). When we went to South Dakota, it was a real eye-opener that many rigs don't even have a CB, but rather ...

I use Geo Tracker for a lot of this stuff and it works awesome with the maps we host. What other map programs work great for phones? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ilyabogdanovich.geotracker...

So obviously no single person or a team could possibly map everything in any area. We want to make the trail and waypoint directory a simple, fun and engaging part of the site that our members have a lot of input and control of. We're all the eyes an...

The map will now show different types of terrain, zoom, street view (where available) along with the social shares, map downloads and more. The interactive map has been moved to the top to show more info and should now show up on all phones. Revi...

This is kinda extreme but on trips where you may be out overlanding for many days, I came across this wash machine that's unlike any other. Yes yes... few trips would need this BUT it's really the only feasible unit you could bring along that's sorta...

So I'm writing up an official communication recommendation page and folks keep pointing to rugged radios. After some research, it seems rugged is somehow trying to apply for a business license for all their radios and, from what I see, those radios, ...

I've ordered some samples of things we're going to produce going forward using high-quality embroidery and great shirts. You'll still be able to pick your logos and fun stuff we'll have for Chapters, EnduroCrawls, GeoCrawls, etc. Here are some sa...

The Trans Wisconsin Adventure Trail is a 600+ mile route starting at the Illinois/Wisconsin border around Galena IL, and finishes NE of Cornucopia Wisconsin at Lake Superior. I have the GPS data for this trail and want to take a long weekend to m...

Fires can start by doing basic wiring wrong to accessories. Here's a basic video on the subject. Stripping and connecting wires can be messy and confusing, but this week Hagerty’s Matt Lewis shows you how to do it quickly and neatly. Using an auto-st...
Per request here's my take on Rough Country's Front Stubby LED Winch Bumper model #11825 Installation of the bumper was fairly simple I've included the install guide pdf if anyone is curious on how it's done. I dont have any pictures of the instal...
I have a 2017 Jeep Wrangler JK and just upgraded from a 2.5" Rough Country lift that I had put on when purchased from the Dealer (Uptown Motors) so selling it - asking $80 for the (4) coils spacers. The lift has 9,000 miles on it at time of remo...
Working on beefing up the listings with searchable fields like the following image has. This will give us a vastly improved ability for members to search for what they want. Waypoints will not have to be on a trail either. I envision we can get s...

The map directory will now also have tours and routes. The idea is to make an entire tour out of combined trails or fun roads. Tours will be used by the chapters and clubs that have neat roadways. They can also be used to lump an entire set of sm...

As some of you may have seen, I'm requesting that Wrangler Riders (the foundation/home office) be changed to the Road Legal 4WD Assoc. and we'll have Wrangler Riders as a WI chapter within it. The reasons for this change request are: 1. This giv...

Here’s my review of the Bolt Lock jmount for TJ and JK models jack mount. Overall it seems like a decent mounting solution for a hi-lift or equivalent. I’ve had a hood mount on my last rig and it’s a PITA to get it off the top of the hood without dra...
Jess and I ordered the Racor Ceiling Storage Lift, PHL-1R from WalMart. Topsy has a bracket system to use with that so one person can take a top on and off. Does anyone else have this kit? I'll be reshooting a video for this and we're helpi...
