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
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

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

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
Coarse-grained salt (I prefer smoked sea salt)
Ground lemon pepper

One of the most popular Trail making systems on the planet is GAIA GPS and I believe once you start diving into it you’ll see why so many adventurers utilize this powerful system.
Some great features is GAIA GPS supports multiple operating systems (IOS, Android, etc) and what I love is you can plan your entire route via a web browser and save the GPX file to share with your friends or club etc..
Here are some high level screenshots of the web version

Some days you have to just ask yourself, "What the heck is the world coming to?" and I find myself saying this often lately with the big push from the government to go electric only. Yea, they are not supporting the more reasonable approach is to demand Hybrid Technology which is more realistic instead of strictly Electric Only vehicles since our country is not ready for everyone to have everyone plug in there electric vehicles to begin the hours of waiting time while electricity trickles into
What makes Drummond Island the ORV paradise of Michigan? Is it the miles of routes and trails resting beneath the tree canopy? Is it the scenic view of wildlife? The variety of trails and routes suitable for experts and novices alike? The easily accessed food, lodging, entertainment, service, or emergency aid? The clear signage indicating location, destination, and points of interest?
It’s a riding adventure and the trails are fun. The off road vehicle (ORV) trails on Drummond are some of t

Sometimes they run out of Salmon and you grab whatever is on sale. This is a spin on Red Snapper because it was on sale.
2 (6- to 8-ounce) red snapper fillets
4 tablespoons butter
1 medium clove garlic, minced
3 to 4 drops Worcestershire sauce

1 to 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

Right off the start I need shocks and 33's balanced.
My goal is to change them to 3/4 ton axles (roughly $3100 for front G2 D44 with eaton e-locker and another $3400 for back G2 D44 with eaton e-locker)
Also I want to change the interior to all black and it desperately needs a paint job (not decided color... leaning towards blue like my cutlass)
What we enjoy about this pasta is how refreshing the lemon gives the pasta. It's fresh and healthy for you.

This is a beautiful truck but not really Offroading but thought it was still worth sharing

This is pretty cool and wanted to share the video. Not sure how to describe it besides looks like a lot of fun but it does have 140hp on land and water. That could be fun!
Speed on Land is around the average of 50mph which is usually enough to have some fun on the trails
Speed on Water is around 45mph which also can be fun.
Fuel Capacity is 15 gallons

4 wheel disc brakes
Cleaning the air filter on your ATV is one crucial maintenance measure a rider should take. The presence and function of the air intake in a vehicle are so vital that once it gets damaged, the vehicle engine potentially becomes exposed to all manner of things.
If you don’t have enough information on how to clean an ATV air filter, below is a compiled essential tips to follow to achieve a great result with little or no cost.

Black beans and rice make a great meal that's filling, delicious, and cheap! Great as a side dish or in a burrito bowl. Top this dirt-cheap meal off with a bit of soy sauce to give it some flavor and you could literally feed a family of four a meal for less than $2.50.
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
¾ cup uncooked white rice
1 ½ cups low sodium, low fat vegetable or chicken broth

Blending the best of both worlds, chili mac combines the smoky and spicy flavor of chilli with the rich and creamy texture of mac & cheese. It’s an all-American camping classic and using this recipe, you can make it using just a single pot! This recipe makes enough for around 4 people.
1 tablespoon oil
1 onion diced
½ pound ground beef or ground turkey
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
I have been researching Side by Sides and have some experience with owning a 2019 Can-Am 1000 Maverick Trail. We very much enjoyed our Can-Am but because of unfortunate events that happened in our life we had to part ways and need to get rid of debt as quick as possible so gave it away for way less than I put into it but it went to a good home in Montana.
So notes I would mention in regards to the Can-Am Maverick Trail 1000 DPS I would mention that the 50" wide SxS, no matter what bra
Here is something interesting that many don't know about Electric Vehicles. Why do people move to electric vehicles because its not to save money since they cost much much more than internal combustion engines. Its not to save the planet since more than 80% of electricity we use is from coal burning power plants (so actually you are creating more of an issue by increasing the demand of the coal plants). EVEN if you "thought" your power from the wind power plants is what gave you your needed e
I followed this recipe for our turkey this year and some of the pickest eaters said this was the best turkey "THEY EVER HAD"
I will be using this recipe next year for sure. It was VERY VERY delicious.
I used Apple wood chunks I stuck in the corners of the BGE that would smolder eventually and I cooked at 275 for about 4 hours. Every hour I sprayed with Canola Oil to help keep that skin crispy. I used the Killer Hogs A.P. seasoning and Zataranns Creole Seasoning instead of following
Thanksgiving I smoked two 14lb turkeys following this recipe with Cherry wood and everyone loved it. This is my Thanksgiving Turkey recipe every year which is why I'm following this recipe so I don't loose it.
Had a beautiful smoke ring on Turkey when cut into it. Awesome!
BGE pre-warmed to 300 as instructed (you said 275-300 so figured with two I should take the warmer side of 300)
As your recipe suggested, I then got the turkeys ready with a good wash to get rid of the br
