    thanks @POULE43 and @JD Miester I’ve got a grin from ear to ear. Picked this up and it hasn’t been started for years. I pulled the seat off and the fuel tank. I removed the carburetor and cleaned it out. I cleaned out the fuel tank and reinstalled everything. It actually tried to fire up on the first half ass pull. The second pull and it fired right up. Took a little video and sent it out. I put the seat back on and started driving around the neighborhood. Took it up the street to the dirt lots and all I can say is I was a giggling idiot. And I figured out 20psi in the tires are a tad to high

    do your research and find out what you will pay. I do that then I just start calling Sales managers. I have bought my last 5 trucks this way. If I don't like what they say I call another dealer. I wait till the end of the month. only a hour in the dealership and gone. even with trade ins. Last Ram I got 14k off sticker and i was ok with that. To let everyone know dealers make a lot per truck. Take invoice and with all the co op advertizing, dealer holdback and sales incentives most are making 6 grand if they sell you a truck at invoice. I keep it simple 500 to 1000 off invoice and all incentives and you are doing good. dealership overhead is huge and everyone needs to pay the bills.

    What the... What cheap shot did he take? He just called a spade a spade. If the OP's GF isn't actually injured and claims injury that's insurance fraud, by definition. It doesn't matter if "everybody is doing it" right is right, and wrong is wrong. The only person targeting anyone or taking cheap shots is you. You're saying Jim has a "pathetic existance" [sic] because he's not a fan of insurance fraud? Aaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway, back on topic. Hopefully your insurance companies estimate keeps it under the totalled threshold and you can have it fixed properly. TBSS's are a lot of fun. -TJ

    My thoughts exactly. However, I drink the beer and figure things out, but then I'm in no shape to do it. The next day I can't remember what I figured out, so I have to drink some more beer so I can figure it out again. Fortunately I eventually run out of beer, temporarily, and get things done.

    They haven't done shit... it's all about what you make it. I'm tired of being pissed off all the time about shit we can't control so I just make the best of it until such time that I can make the move... more time with friends, my wife and kids... more time by the pool with an ICE COLD BREWSKIES in my hand and doing more projects for us... currently just finished my enclosed trailer build, am working on my 21' Daytona and our house... don't have time to worry about other shit

    I know but many of the new comers here might not know the BS the BLM has pulled. I was using out conversation to spread the word. If you look at what the BLM has done it has all been to hurd us into a smaller more manageable area. Why fish in a lake when you can get all those fish in a barrel.

    I have repaired so many things on Toyhaulers and its why I went the Moho /trailer route for a number of years. with Toy haulers I look at the two types of builds - the lite weight "stick and tin" stuff as they call it (I have one of those now) and the smooth side Aluminum stud construction of the heavier design. Both have their benefits IMO, and the ATC stuff is a modification of the latter looks top notch. A little attention to detail on most of these would make them a lot better, but I have never see that consistently, whether they fall down on electrical, or plumbing, or just cutting holes everywhere... - they are like the "kit cars" of RVs This is why I like ATC....For me it's the stuff companies buy from "lippert" and they all buy that lippert stuff...and have to "integrate" that is where a lot of the "rough" work shows and where you have problems because they aren't engineering it- they are making it fit. The more pieces the manufacturer "engineers" assuming they are good at it, the better the overall product. ATC makes their own extruded floors , roofs, and wall panels and cabinets - they engineer those and no wood screws and medium density fiberboard, and water won't attack them - seems like they might hold up better over rough roads and off camber hauling. that stuff is not cheap and it shows in the price tag

    The usual turn and burn. Jumped in this and headed out. Just stopped in St George for fuel so I'm about half way to LA. Stewart Raceworks luxury prerunner and there's a fully decked out brand Wildcat XX in the Uhaul. Gotta get them both to San Diego so they can prerun the Baja 400.

    Last summer wife says we need some Jetskis! So before I let her go buying new ones I search the ol' offer up. Guy has 2 Honda Turbo 3 seaters up for $4500 1 running, 1 not. He said both were running perfect earlier in the year. I go over to check them out, offer $3,500 trailer and all. He thought for a sec and then said screw it, take em'. The non runner had the prop jamming in the housing and wouldn't spin. Disassembled, took a grinder around the inside of the housing until it spun free. Fired right up! Now I get asked all the time at the bay if they are for sale. One guy offered me 10k! My head spun but I don't want to end up divorced. So like a dumbass I said no. I gotta admit though, they are super fast and spanks any ski out there from a dig. I'm having a good time so I call it a deal!!

    Sweet invite bro. If it were me I'd do all the touristy type stuff I've never done, even though I've lived in CA my entire life. Ronald Reagan museum always has a cool exhibit. We saw the Abraham Lincoln one and it was really neat. Winchester house Hearst Castle Lots of stuff to see in San Francisco if you can avoid the human feces problem

    This car is really light. Now that I'm been looking stuff up, I'm pretty sure I have combos. As far as builds...I agree. I want things custom but since I didn't build it, I have no record of where it started from. Just developing all that now. Yeah..freaking wires and hoses. Drives me crazy. I just spent time cleaning up a lot of the wiring yesterday. Looks a lot better. I pulled the seats and had wires everywhere. Not no mo!

    Needs 2'' hollows, and most people like myself or LRS would use a after aftermarket fuel regulator, I think just posting pictures will help find the parts you need, allot of experience on the board with what is now typical

    The problem is I got a smoking deal on a great enclosed trailer that was bigger then I actually needed so I filled it up with crap. Every time I have the trailer at my house I go through cabinets and drawers to eliminate stuff I don't need. I have had plans to get my coach into a trailer place to have a Class V 2.5" receiver installed. Just haven't made the time yet, and now the season is here again. Or I suppose I could bring my coach to you and have a 2.5" receiver welded on... And thanks for the deal on that enclosed. Been almost 10 years and I love that thing. Understandable. Can't say for sure why it snapped but it was a clean break all the way around at the welds. The hitch was pretty old. It was scary AF when my driver, who was hauling that enclosed from Racer to Washington state, called and said the hitch snapped. That hitch was only a month old and had been used less than 10 times. Fortunately the trailer had good safety chains and there was minimal trailer damage. I don't use WD hitch or sway bar on anything I tow.

At the time it had 1800 miles and the owner was an older gentleman who just used it to run around his lake house. It's red under the RealTree wrap, and looked like this: If you don't like the camo you could remove the wrap and it'd still have that sparkly red finish. I bought this for my Dad, who lives in Idaho. He enjoyed my RZRs but isn't a "speed freak" and I figured he'd want the extra utility of the Teryx. It took me a long time to find a nice, clean, EFI Teryx that had long travel but still had a functional bed. Well, long-story short it turns out Pops really just doesn't use it, so he gave it back to me. I like it a lot, and it's a great woods exploring/camping/hunting type rig. However, I'm also selling my BFD Revo and want to replace the Revo and this with a Turbo S 4 (just trying to simplify and have 2 RZRs, no other toys). Full disclosure: I chased my tail a bit running down a problem with the vehicle speed sensor. When using the Teryx on hot days on long climbs the belt-warning light would flash, and it'd go into a limp mode. I neither smelled or felt belt slip, but we had the clutches fully rebuild and a new belt put on anyway. We still had the issue, so then we went down the rabbit-hole of addressing temps thinking maybe the temps were causing the issue (even though the coolant temp light never came on). We upgraded the water pump, fan, added a real temp gauge and even added an oil cooler. In the end, it turned out it was the vehicle speed sensor that was going bad. It would intermittently send no signal, so the ECU would read 0 MPH but see that the Teryx was in gear and the RPMs were up and interpret that as belt-slip, putting it into a limp-mode. An $18 sensor you can get on Amazon did the trick, and we just finished a long trip to Walker River where it was 90+ every day with zero limp-mode: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MDWN9Z9/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This thing is 100% ready to go and running great now. I figured I'd just explain why it has all the cooling upgrades and such. (upgraded fan, oil cooler, fresh K&N oil filter, etc) It's also very handy for freedom'ing: Asking $7,800 obo I also have a 6.5x10' Carson trailer that I bought new for it in 2017 that can be included for $1k additional. The trailer is NOT for sale separately and I will never sell it for only $1k on its own. I'd rather keep the trailer, it's handy to have around - but to sweeten the deal on the Teryx I'll let it go. -TJ

    If I refinance my house it won't be to buy a "washer drum belt driven" SxS, I would consider a refi and getting another house in Washington state to make my retirement place.

    For quick cooks, small cooks. Comes up to temp faster and burns less lump. Tonight I had both going, chicken wings on Jr. and a tritip (indirect) on Senior. I like steak on the egg vs the Traeger so when I am only cooking 1 I can use the small egg.

    First dig a hole where you want it to go. Then dig out the tree where it sits. Next tie a very strong strap to your tow vehicle. Back up and get a running start. The goal is to sling shot the tree from its current hole to its new hole. If done right it will launch into the air and then land perfectly into the new hole. Be sure to give it lots of water and love.

    Here is the thread I did dbart. In hind sight I think I would have let it go and buy a motor home. But we only had it a short time and I was not going to let someone take it away from me! It was a long and painful journey, but in the end we had something WW never built and was one of a kind! The guy i sold it to uses it to haul his 2 race RZR's to the races and it's his base of operations. It really was pretty amazing when it was done!

    Are we still discussing "exhaust" headers used on steel cars used in the desert or did this thread move on to food grade, aerospace, pharmaceutical grade stainless process piping? Every stainless exhaust manufacturer that I know of uses steel tables and steel fixtures to build stainless headers and exhaust systems. You may be confused with aluminum contamination and welding.

    Made some progress this weekend. finished up the engine cage. It was a pain to figure out how to keep it removable but also be stout. Also finished up the radiator mount and some other small stuff.
