    So... I've "kind of" done this before... We were in Thailand. I was on a bender and a flaming shot kick. I ordered a round of flaming shots. I told everyone what to do, how to drink it without burning themselves. The shots come, we light them...throw my straw in and the girl next to me from the ship..."what do I do again?" so I ignore my flaming shot...start helping her with hers. The guy across from me..."Dude...you're straw is melting." I reach in to grab my straw...burn my fingers. What's the first thing you do? Yep...stick them in your mouth...with molten plastic on them...Now my mouth is burnt. THEN what do you do? Yep...you guessed it again. Take a drink. Which I grab the flaming shot...which has now turned the glass hot red. I burn a f*cking smile like the f*cking Joker from Batman into my face, burned my mouth, tongue, fingers...then the girl says..."well that's stupid. I'm not doing it." So glad I'm here for you all....

    Just came upon this beauty walking across Mtn View rd out here in the east county. He is a big one. A couple cars just drove on by him...”how the heck do you just drive by a massive turtle in the road?” A guy who was first to stop met the lady across the street and said he was hers, his name is Ralph. Very cool dude. I picked him up and took him back to his home. She said he weighed about 100 pounds. But was more like 60 or so. He loves apples.

    Unemployment down. Yes. It is significantly down. I can't say it's because of Trump. It's a sign of the trends and economy. Another factor to consider, what are they measuring? Employment overall or by the number of people requesting unemployment? A lot of people's benefits ran out and that would reduce the number. Are people working 2-3 part-time jobs and that equates to "unemployment" being down? I'll tell you I've been looking for a job for a long time. Not a single callback. I can't claim unemployment because I collect retirement, disability compensation, and educational money from the VA. Unemployment numbers without what the measure is, means nothing. The "Korean War" declaration was signed, but North Korea quit being at war with the South a long time ago. They have been at war with the US. If Kim is still launching missiles and doing testing, won't give up his nuclear weapons...we are far worse off. Has Trump made "gains", sort of. North Korea's whole pint of all this has always been to get a seat at the big table. In this case, North Korea has won. Still, Trump seems to be willing to make an attempt here. Something others have not. Tax cut...Did you benefit from this? There are many, even on here that said their taxes went up. I think big business won out on this one. It CA, it's still a negative sum because the state sees what you "get back" and since you already paid it, they increase state taxes to get what the Fed gave you back. While not Trump's doing, the average person doesn't understand this. If they did, they'd quit voting democrat in CA. ISIS has not been eliminated. If anything, they are rebuilding and laying low. New factions are popping up. The US continues to fight a war "ethically". We do not use the same "rules" as our enemy and they know it. They are more brutal, they are more savage than us. They know it and we know it. Do we continue to beat them down? Yes, but they just keep popping up. The US has not won any war on terror. Trust me. I've fought it. Black unemployment...see my comments on unemployment overall Trillions coming back to the US...Where? How? If so, why is our economy still fluctuating? Trump has started a trade war that will set our country back decades. Do I somewhat support it? Yes. I'd much rather close off our country and make us rely on ourselves. Cut off foreign aid, cut off the UN, cutoff NATO. Bring our people home and let the rest of the world burn for a while. But if "trillions" were going back, why is our debt still going up? Again, show me the numbers with all the spin and 20 year projections left out of it. Dramatic deregulation....Is the always a good thing? In some cases, our government has a responsibility to force industry and others to care about what we are doing and the ethics of it all. If I had my way, I'd regulate the HELL out of our energy and auto industries just to start. It's absolutely bullshit that we have the technology to have cleaner energy and more fuel efficient cars but big oil and auto industry keep forcing oil and mediocre cars on us. Big oil purchases some kids college project on fuel efficiency, give him a job...and the American public never sees it. Why? Profits. It should be illegal. There are many other regulations that should stay in place or should be put in place...Why? The American business sector is flat out unethical. As far as the left resisting...their only platform is HATE TRUMP...at all costs. But so is the Republican response...hate the left at all costs. Who pays for it all in the end? WE DO. Does this suffice as a response?

    Yup, duned a few days with Kat and things have changed since I was out a month ago. But have no fear, I’ve been coming out here for over 45 years and Mother G has always kept it interesting. Love her for what she is and you will never be disappointed.

    Welcome to my world...……..except it's not Home Depot. It's "professionals". Amazing some of the stuff we see. Of course Home Depot has their stuff done by the "professionals". Maybe that explains it. It's only become worse due to the over abundance of stupid people in the work force. FYI, you should be able to cut that rack with a hacksaw.....?

    for DIY most of all the links out there are the same (some guy did it to his Ford Falcon), but this one puts it all in one place and easy to figure out. https://www.therangerstation.com/how-to/wheels_and_brakes/toyota-electric-power-steering-eps-conversion/ I just went out and got a setup off an 09' Corolla for $50 at "picky your part" wrecking yard. Complete, motor, computer and shafts $50 If you ready the DIY's you'll notice the GM's must have the adjuster added but most of the import's do not. The imports are fixed because they don't get "CAN" bus signal and GM add-on adjuster provides the "VSS" signal it's looking for. The imports go into "limp mode" fixed electric assist after 5sec or so. Also all the SxS's now have EPAS, you can get a unit from one of them, but I have no idea how they work with/without ECU's and what not... https://www.ebay.com/itm/1820-2017-16-17-18-Polaris-RZR-XP4-1000-EPS-Power-Steering-Box/312577494995?hash=item48c7120fd3:g:o2UAAOSwVVlcuI~m

    Nothing was custom...these sizes are all standard. Check the box what size you need... Over all opening size: 120" x 96" Finish: White Inset material: Mirror If I have to cut it to fit after giving them the size opening I need, I wouldn't have ordered it from them. It boggles my mind. At work we have built Custom Exhibits worth 100's of thousands of dollars in less time than a standard sized set of closet doors!

    So is it still a torsion tube if there is no torsion bar inside of it? BTW my SU mid has an anti-sway tube just above my torsion tube, minus a torsion bar, but has an anti-sway bar inside the anti-sway tube. So my set up is an anti-sway bar minus a torsion bar. Obviously two negatives make a positive, so I must have a torsion tube in my car. However, it is a mid engine so maybe I don’t have a torsion tube. The two negatives which were positive are inverted and become a negative because it’s mid engine means that I don’t have a torsion tube. Somebody please help.

    Thanks for the photos and info. I had no idea this kind of technology was in use so extensively. I said "some future vehicle" in my previous post because I don't see myself driving the longest distances in my Maverick, but I'm going to rethink this and do research on GPS units for my SxS. This kind of technology gets me way more excited than things like a windshield, roof, and stereo system. Regarding your "thousands of miles" comment, I better get to it and drive more miles. I think I'm going to really turn up the volume on my trips next season.

    I run the Shocker style- two in the front and one in the back. The small HDS5 is angled toward the drivers seat for easier viewing. The HDS10 is reachable while the passenger is strapped in. The one in the backseat is for whoever's back there. I've spent thousands of miles prerunning and when I'm in the back seat not running my section it's actually boring. So I added something to do back there.

    Take a look at how many Republicans that did not run again for re-election because of trump.. Swamp draining and you missed it.. probably pay a little more attention behind the scenes and not whats being flaunted in your face and you might see how good this guy is.. Investment Exodus / Shifting Supply Chains – China Walks into Trump’s “Golden Ticket” Trap It was a geopolitical chess match ..missed? watch this It is a slow go when everyone is against you... cant just ask the DOJ or the FBI to do their jobs.. Dirty from the top down... Think about the FBI angents working with Mueller.. not one stepped forward and said hey this investigation is garbage? Not one? Mueller knew Russia had nothing to do with anything in just a few days.. why did it take 2 yrs to come to a final conclusion? Terrible investigating skills? No, all part of the Dirt from the top.. Stand by as you have been... things I think will start taking shape.. Starting to like Barr but time will tell. Find some honest people to do what is right is not as easy as it seems anymore .. the Rule of law happens to be who donated more money and to whom at this point. Hes doing a great Job and to your point" The economy is rarely a direct effect of the President" ... think again... Obama killed the middle class and manufacturing.. single handed... Policy has an impact.. Focus on Tariffs and you see manufacturing get a flint of life.. remove EPA rules a little and that spark turned into an ember. See what manufacturing is doing now? Trade reset is coming.... China will hurt for a long time... Companies will be forced to leave china nad move to other Asia countries in this reset.. Stand back and see the forest through the trees.. get out of the weeds..

    This picture alone would make me want to switch. I can't stand all the leaking fluid and the mess it makes. I assume you need to top off the reservoir as well. I've had both and I recommend the EPS.

    I bought my kit on here Mac. Search affordable power steering posted by hondarcr as suggested. I will add a couple things. Glen in our group bought a DD car with Howe steering and he was coming out of a car with electric power steering and one of the first things he did was swap to electric power steering cuz he liked the feel of it better. Also, my last trip out a few weeks ago i loaded on the trailer with power steering and when I unloaded in Glamis it would not come on. Still duned all day without it. I texted Harvey (hondarcr) and he made one reply that was of no help and when I asked for suggestions, nothing. Just sayin'. Packed her away unfixed. Probably be a September issue now.

    Been a few a few years since I haven’t had a late April or early May trip . This year I didn’t make it out 🙁. It does always get me how different the sand is. The bowls fill in weird and the places you expect firm sand are full of loose fill. This ones from a couple years ago.

    Yes, I partially think this might be a little bit of his game plan. Some news reports said that he totally mind focked the libtards at the SOTU address by providing them with an incorrect copy of his speech. They were all prepared to do some sort of childish disrespectful display in unison at a predetermined point in the speech and he thwarted them because they had no idea what he was really going to say. That's why we saw Pelosi madly flipping through the pages of the speech early on and was reduced to doing her childish little sarcastic golf clap as her last resort. I truly enjoy it when he pulls out their brains and plays with it like play dough. He's got them so wrapped around the axle and emotionally wound up they can't see straight. Like all of these investigations. They're subpoenaing everybody and his dog trying to nail him for anything. The media even stooped so low as to dig into his finances from the 80s to discredit him. It cracks me up to think how foolish they look digging for every little tidbit. I'm sure he's got them chasing his left hand while he's fisting them with his right.
