    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 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 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

Oven-Baked Salmon

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. Ingredients 12 ounce salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces Olive oil Coarse-grained salt (I prefer smoked sea salt) Ground lemon pepper Instructions Preheat the ov

GAIA GPS

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 BASICS At the bottom left

Electric Vehicles Joke

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

Drummond Island

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

1991 Chevy K5 Blazer Journey

Heading down this weekend to pickup a 1991 Chevy Blazer K5   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)

Check out Gibbs Amphibans Terraquad

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!

Honda Pioneer 1000-5 Limited

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
