What?  I thought to myself.  Wait, what?  I eyed my phone’s screen for the second time in a matter of seconds.  I carefully read the news flash: President Obama has created the Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah.  Talk and rumors became reality.  President Obama created the second largest monument in the lower 48 at over 1.3 million acres.  The largest national monument, Grand Staircase Escalante Monument, is also located in Utah and a very close neighbor.   Utah’s public lands grew considerably with the President’s signature.  Utahans felt overjoyed, right?  Not exactly.

There’s the age old question of should or shouldn’t I get a snorkel. On a popular FJ Cruiser forum it’s ten pages deep of back and forth banter espousing the pros and cons of having one. There’s everything from power gains, waterproofing to clean air. But in the end, it’s your rig and even if it’s as simple as liking the look, then go for it.

HIgh-Performance Dual Battery Install

I wanted to upgrade the electrical on my 2006 4Runner since I was going to be adding some electronic upgrades that I knew would really tax the factory electrical system. I started with the heart of the system:  the alternator. I ran some quick calculations to see what kind of power I would need to supply and size my wire accordingly. After doing some research and contacting a few companies, I decided on Mike Singer of Singer Alternators. His website is rather barren and he prefers it that way. He runs a smaller shop and he prefers customers contact him via the form on his website so he can address their individual needs properly.
