  • Welcome to Gear Crushers!

    So what the heck is Gear Crushers all about?  We are about loving more than just offroad or just street or just motorcycles.  We love all of it!  Too many clubs are focused on one thing like Jeeps or Motocross but we like everything.  We believe we can love more than just one focus.  Let's focus on all that is cool and crush them gears.

    This site is dedicated to anyone who enjoys the sound of an engine, the smell of fuel burning, the adrenaline of tackling challenges while crushing those gears.

    We are not biased towards one type of vehicle, make or model. We can appreciate the passion no matter what you are working on, driving, admiring, polishing, designing.

    Gear Crushers are for those of us that want to break the mold and have one site that has something for everyone since many of our passions can easily cross. An engine or trans or axle or tires etc may work on something else in a completely different group.  Troubleshooting could also be similar.

    I don’t find it fair that we have to choose “exactly” what we have to be on different websites or groups even though our passion may stretch amongst multiple types of vehicles so here you go. Gear Crushers covers anything that runs fuel.  Community driven. Cool logo. Non-biased fun.=

    Enjoy as we keep improving the site!  We are under construction since our site was hacked and destroyed.  We moved to a more solid website and its now also encrypted using an SSL cert so we should have a better shot at keeping up and running.  We also learned to back up the site so nightly backups are happening now.

      By Cowboy Denny,

      You know its not always convenient to want salmon.  For example, its now winter time in Michigan with snow on the grill and I just don't feel the energy to go out and try and get that BGE all fired up for something as quick to cook as salmon.  So, whats the alternative?  Cook it in the oven.


      • 12 ounce salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
      • Olive oil
      • Coarse-grained salt (I prefer smoked sea salt)
      • Ground lemon pepper


      1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
      2. Cover salmon with a light coat of olive oil
      3. Season salmon with salt and pepper.
      4. Place salmon, skin side down, on a non-stick baking sheet or in a non-stick pan with an oven-proof handle.
      5. Bake until salmon is cooked through, about 12 to 15 minutes.

    4. These are some tats that I like and I made up for my dad. So please enjoy them and comment which one you like. :grin:9CB1E65E-F09B-4A8F-8495-383546B49A48.thumb.jpeg.cc6c70e3833791ec1f1cf3d25365be65.jpeg



    5. My wife and I are freezing our asses off in our own home unless I crank the furnace up to 68 degrees which is crazy to think.  I remember as a kid we were never cold in the house but we always had a wood burner in the home (most of the homes it was in the basement).  It would get some warm in the house that windows had to be opened in the home in the middle of winter to let out some of the hot and let in some of the cool weather.

      So now I'm a grown up and freezing my ass off in this home that was built in the 60's I thought of applying the same thought process that worked when I was a kid.  Get a wood burner in the basement.


      I originally wanted to replace the wood stove upstairs that came with the home since it doesn't put out a lot (or really any) heat.  Especially since we spend most of our time in the living room upstairs but when they came out to look at what we have they pointed out that we should stop using it Immediately.


      Apparently whoever put the wood insert in trimmed the outside of it with wood trim which is charred on the back from burning from the heat of the wood stove.  So in short, its about to start on fire like charcoal.  To correct the hearth that is too short, all the wood trim, wood mantle, etc I'm looking close to $10,000 so probably not going to happen.  My thought was to pull it out and put a gas stove/insert in its place so I don't have to do as much work.  The company I talked to said they could pull the stove out for $400 but some serious cost to fix everything.  That will have to be maybe next year.

      Since upstairs is a bust, concentrating on the downstairs which uses the same chimney so its directly below the living room. 


      My thought is it would at least warm the wood floors in the winter and give the impression its warmer.  And we do know that warm air rises so there is a good chance it could heat most of the 1800 sq ft 1960 home on half basement and half crawl (the crawl space is below all the bedrooms)

      I was bouncing back and forth between a Lopi and a Blaze King for manufacturers of wood stove.  My parents has a Lopi wood stove and it was there favorite of all the brands they had but that was a long time ago before they started getting strict with emissions.

      Researching burn times and warranty information the Blaze King on paper is the clear winner so I chose a Blaze King Princess Insert which will get installed on the 23rd of January 2018 (brochure is attached along with manual)
