    Welcome to Gear Crushers!

    By wildweaselmi

    So what the heck is Gear Crushers all about?  In short, we have so many passions that we couldn't pick just one.  We love all of it!  Too many websites and clubs are focused on one passion but we like everything.  We believe we can love more than just one passion.   How many times have you gone to a website and invested time in adding and contributing to the community to have them change or just call it quits.  Or you belong to a website that never gets updated.. yawn.  We are tired of bein

    Gear Crushers Street Scene

    By wildweaselmi

    What is the street scene?  It's focusing on muscle cars, low riders, Dairy Queeners (offroad looking trucks that don't drive even on dirt roads), drag racing, circle tracks and more.  You probably get the gist.  The street community is all about beauty on the asphalt. Personally I've always been a huge muscle car fan.  Went through my phases of owning several classic muscle cars.  Here you can share your projects or builds.  Talk in the garage and maybe help someone out if they have questio

    Gear Crushers Offroad Community

    By wildweaselmi

    At some moment in your life you were introduced to the world of offroad and if you were like me, you fell in love with it.  The challenges, the obstacles and tackling a course that looks impossible to the untrained eye.  Something so peaceful when exploring areas not many could get to or want to. Here at Gear Crushers off-roading is just one of the many passions we have and we want to provide an area that everyone from anywhere in the world can contribute.  The easiest is to create a club a

    Gear Crushers ATV-UTV Community

    By wildweaselmi

    So many pro's to hit trails with a ATV or UTV or SxS versus your vehicle.  Why?  One of the biggest reasons is many people drive the vehicle they are off-roading and when that breaks you have no way home and costs start piling up.  With a ATV or UTV or SxS you trailer it to your destination, beat it up and/or do whatever and even if it happens to break, you can get it back to the trailer and you still have a ride home. I've owned many of the top brands in ATV, UTV and SxS and I have my pers

2017 Nissan Armada Opinion

So my 2013 Dodge RAM 3500 had an issue with the DEF pump and injector ($2500 in parts) so I had to get a rental since the repair was going to be roughly two weeks due to lack of parts.  At first enterprise gave me a Dodge Journey..  what a serious piece of crap that was.  I couldn't drive it more than a day and had to exchange it for something else, anything else.  I paid for an upgrade (spoil myself) on the Nissan Armada.  Never drove one before and figured this is the perfect opportunity to se

Time for a Wood Stove

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 th

Dad Hospital Visit

Yesterday I'm chugging along, keyboard pounding at my job and I get a call from my sister that she was notified by dispatch that our dad is being transported to the hospital via an ambulance.  Now my dad isn't a young man and he's considered overweight.  The information she has is that his nose is pouring blood and he can't get it to stop, dizziness, shortness of breath so he calls for an ambulance to get him to the hospital. What a scary feeling.  Of course my primary mode of transpo

Ro-Ro-Bots

So, I do Robotics. 2017 was the first year for me and I was exited to get started. But of corse it took forever to start. Very boring at first. All we talked about was the game and none about the robot it self. After like a week of it we finally started talking and planning out but I did not help much because they are on the second year of robotics and its only my first. We were the first middle school group that made it to states but unfortunately we did not win to compete against the high scho

1972 Cutlass Convertible

I always wanted a muscle car but time and finances never really allowed it until I got divorced. I'm even more broke but didn't have that person to tell me no. It was a matter of finding what I wanted. I love Chevelle's and Camaro's but everyone has one. I ran across an Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Convertible in really solid condition body and frame. Not perfect, but solid... so I bought it.

Woodward Dream Cruise 2017

Woodward Dream Cruise 2017 Still crazy as ever.  Very very packed from bumper to bumper with a whole wide range of vehicles. You have the typical what you expect classic cars To the bit crazier vehicles (how much motor can I put in the smallest space) An then you get the art on wheels. Always something to catch your eye as they drive one way then they turn around and drive the other way and then turn around again It's worth going.  Tons of fun bu

BFG KO2 vs Toyo Open Country

At the tire store again since the Goodyear Duratracs have proven to be garbage tires.  They chunked out so bad that I couldn't even drive my truck anymore.  Yes I rotated them every other oil change and yes I did carry a fifth wheel.  All things I do with the factory bridgestones without issues and with the Silent Armors I had without the issues I've had with the Duratracs.  Not to mention how horrible they are in the snow and rain. So next purchase I limited my decision to either BF G

4Runner Power

So my wife was on her way to work and went to the ATM at the bank and its unfortunately across the street from a school.  She needs to turn left out of the parking lot to head towards work but a line of cars are blocking her as they are waiting to pull into the school to drop off there kids. Some nice person decides to let her out and she looks both ways and she starts to pull out and BAM!!  A late 90's Chevy Silverado plows into her.  He was tired of waiting in the left lane of cars so he

My RAM gots its ass ripped

So I had a "Perform Service" on the trucks display so I needed to get it to the shop to figure out whats wrong with it.  Last time they had it I didn't have a truck for a bit so if I needed to do anything with it I better use it before I drop the truck off for work. I wanted to mow under my fifth wheel so originally I wanted to back it up but without a spotter I was worried about the trees, tractor or whatever else that could go terribly wrong so I decided I'd move this monster forward inst
