Post off road book

Christopher Cone's book "Automotive Operation and Maintenance" is available online. It was written for keeping vehicles alive and on the trail in Africa. Very good stuff.

Hope it helps!

Re: off road book

Some great stuff in there, much of it not approved by OSHA.

Also a good reminder that what is for the great majority of us a hobby to do on vacation, is a frequently a matter of life-and-death every day for those in third-world countries. And in that context, that people have been doing some incredible wheeling for decades without the aid of diff lockers, lifts, larger-than-stock tires, sliders, snorkles, a million extra lights, etc. etc.
