30 Spline Axles Davez Off Road

Postby Dave » Tue Mar 04, 2014 2:56 pm

[QUOTE=am4x4;24465329]It would seem not. this is copied from RVC's website

"Please be aware RCV Performance branded Toyota 30 spline sets are the only authentic product true to form with the Bobby Long tradition"

Toyota Axle Shafts


From what it looks like the Toyota axle market has changed a bit despite what we were led to believe during the change of longfield ownership. Yes I am speculating, yes I could be completely wrong, but until someone in the know can confirm otherwise this seems to be what it looks like.

so far the info we have is...

#1 RCV, who made bobbies shafts, is saying they are the only ones who sell longfield spec shafts shafts.

#2 TG no longer sells "made in the USA" shafts and we all know Longfields were made here by RCV[/QUOTE]

Mark A. Smith

Postby Dave » Tue Jun 10, 2014 1:33 pm

For those of you from other parts of the country....this man invented Rock crawling. 1953, Mark and some friends from Georgetown head out to find the "Rubicon Trail", which hadn't been driven on since the 30's.

He invented the Jeepers Jamboree and put it across the whole USA for everyone to experience Jeeping.

There would be no Pirate4x4 without Mark Smith. Lance would have never been to the Rubicon and create this place, without Mark.

He saved the trail from certain closure, by buying land at the Rubicon Springs, snatching it away from SMUD.

He traveled from the tip of South America to North America in 1978.

The Father of Modern Four-Wheeling

The off-road community is with a heavy heart today as we have lost one of the greatest legends in the off-road world. Mark A. Smith who is known as "the father of modern four-wheeling", passed away this morning at the age of 87.

Smith was the Founder of Jeep Jamboree USA as well as Mark A. Smith Off-Roading, Inc.

He was born in 1926 in Globe, Arizona, Smith grew up as the son of a mining engineer in eastern Nevada. While serving in the Marine Corps during World War II, Smith first drove a Jeep, the vehicle he would be associated with throughout his life.

In 1951, Smith settled in Georgetown, California. Looking for a way to boost local tourism, Smith and a group of local boosters devised the Jeepers Jamboree, a demanding off-road excursion traversing an ancient footpath soon to be known the world over as the Rubicon Trail. In time, the event grew into the largest and best-known off-road event in the country. In 1982, Smith took the Jamboree concept nationwide, founding Jeep Jamboree USA, which offers over 30 annual off-road trips across the country exclusively for Jeep owners.

In 1979, Smith organized and led the Expedicion de las Americas, a 120-day, 20,000 mile off-road journey from the southernmost tip of South America at Tierra del Fuego to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, above the Arctic Circle. This historic trip featured a traverse of the virtually impassable Darien Gap, a 103-mile stretch of dense, hostile jungle, which took 30 days to cross. The Expedicion team was the first non-military group to complete a vehicular crossing of the Gap.

He also organized and headed the 1987 Camel Trophy event, considered to be the world’s most demanding off-road adventure, in Madagascar.

Smith’s long official association with Jeep vehicles began in 1954, when the Willys Corporation, then the manufacturer of Jeeps, began their sponsorship of the Jeepers Jamboree. The affiliation with the Jeep brand continued in to the present, with Smith helping to develop the off-road capabilities of Jeep vehicles for over 60 years. The four wheel drive test facility at the Chrysler Proving Grounds, as well as test facilities for law enforcement agencies, tire manufacturers and the Severe Off-Road Track at Quantico Marine Corps Base and over 250 other off-road demonstration and training courses were designed and built by Smith.

In 1980, Smith was inducted into the Off Road Motorsports Hall of Fame. In 1986, his accomplishments were recognized by the United Four Wheel Drive Association, which named him “Four Wheeler of the Decade”, and in 1989, Smith was inducted as a member of the Explorer’s Club of New York.

Smith was also active in the civic life of the Sierra Foothills region of California, serving as Sherriff of Eldorado County and spearheading the planning and construction of the Georgetown and Lake Tahoe airports.

Smith is survived by Irene, his wife of 63 years, and his children Robert, Patti, Greg, and Jill, three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

TOYOTA knowledge:
http://japantravelcafe.com/japanese-lan ... oyota-logo


This is an ongoing series where I explain concepts of the Japanese language through words that you already know; Japanese car names.
Read Part-1 here.
Toyota Logo Family history
For the first time ever on the Internet, all three Toyota logos have been united for this historic blog post.
Let’s start with the first one on the left. This rarely seen logo will not win any design contests, but there are two things that stand out immediately. First, it is written in Romaji (the ABC’s). Second, they spelled Toyota “wrong”.

Actually the spelling of Toyoda in the first logo is correct. The other two are technically “wrong”. Toyota was founded by Sakichi Toyoda (born 1867). His name is spelled with a “da”. It was changed later for reasons I will discuss below. In 1900, when Japan started to industrialize, Sakichi Toyoda was making looming machines that accomplished the difficult task of weaving thread into cloth. They did not start making cars until the 1930’s.
Image

In the early 1900’s it must have been very progressive to write your company’s name in “Romaji”. Especially when that company’s name is using your own family name, Toyoda Automatic Loom Works. Romaji, (literally; “Roman”, “ji”-letters) is when in Japanese, you use the Roman ABC’s to spell out words. It is very common in today’s Japan, but at the time must have been very forward thinking. Keep in mind that when Mr. Toyoda would write his name, he would write it in Kanji, the character based Japanese alphabet (sample of name below). He also had two other ways to write it in Japanese, Hiragana and Katakana (also seen below). He chose to write the company logo in Romaji.

Kanji – 豊 田
Katakana – ト ヨ ダ
Hiragana – と よ だ
Romaji – to yo da
