Do you guys use CB or FRS radios? I think I like FRS better myself. I couldn't pick up all the chatter on the last ride with my temp CB radio.

Most of us have CBs. With smaller groups chatter isn't an issue.

Not to highjack my own thread but any you guys use a handheld cb? Are those any good?

I used a handheld, it was okay though if I had missed something, I wouldn't know I missed it.

the handhelds are junk. you need a real antenna to transmit. get a cheap radio and a magnet mount antenna. couple guys in the club go that route and did it for 30 bucks at a flea market. cigarette lighter adapter works well

I'm sure there are different grades of handhelds. My experience with the Midland 75-822 has been pretty good, especially when connected to an external antenna. The last time I was out with my daughter it worked fine just plugged in to the cig lighter and using it's stubby antenna. Granted we never got that far apart. There are limited options I found for the magnetic mount antenna. The only place I could find to get a half way decent SWR was on the front fender. This worked fine running the sand dunes. Could be problematic on the trails. Eventually I plan on helping her install a Firestik on the back of the Jeep.

Yeah, I'll upgrade at some point... I need more trips and data points to see where the weak spots in my gear are though. =)

Still on the fence. Stacey is interested so if I can work it out, may be both Jeeps. I'll try and figure it out soon.

Not that we'll need it... but I've added an air compressor to my arsenal which I'll bring with me.

The expensive one... Viair 450P "It'll pay for itself eventually..." is my justification.

I figured I'll try to be more of an asset on the next ride instead of a mooch.

Yeah, I blame Amazon. The 88p was where I started reading. It didn't mention anything about 33" tires. Scrolled down, saw suggested alternatives... clicked over...

I repeated that step about 5 times from 31, 32, 33, 35, 37+ tires.

But at least the group will be able to air up for free.
