Hit the youtube button and paste in the video URL. Delete everything before the =

That usually works for me.

I have been trying to research overlanding type stuff because that is kinda sorta what my voyage to Ohio will be like. But faster. Will still have camping and offroading far from home though for tool/spare part and camping loadouts though.

The Aussies have some sweet overlanding rigs. 4wd action is another great channel on youtube to watch for inspiration.

Finally got a chance to watch it, would it not be awesome to be able to walk into a dealer and buy a truck like that (but LH drive) brand new?
