  1. x2 if all u want is better shocks IMO a basic 2in kit will ride better because of more wheel travel. also MO, AEV 2.5in basic kit is the best street ride with progressive springs, also costs more tho.
  2. brian france has nothing on this guy! http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/broadcom-co-founder-henry-nicholas-arrested-in-las-vegas-on-suspicion-of-drug-trafficking/ar-BBLIYlw
  3. never said it was perfect, but it is all we have. I love watching motocross as well but tomac sure can stink up the show by going so fast.
  4. well said ace, if any of you dune racers think nascar racers cant drive go to irwindale and watch the sat. nite races then on sunday watch the driving school take place! it might be boring to some people but I would rather watch car/motorcycle races over basebore anyday IMO.
  5. NASCAR's substance abuse policy allows him to enter the recovery program, kinda like a cop having to go to AA.
  6. maybe he partied to much after chase finally won a race!
  7. ironic because I have been a Chrysler/jeep dealership tech for over 40 years. my commuter car happens to be a fiat 500 e story goes that Sergio wanted his electric car to be able to spin the tires which it does, I burned them up in 15k miles lol
  8. thanks bro, do you need any def fluid?
  9. dies on my birthday, just goes to show that no matter how rich you are when its over its over. heart attack while already in the hospital!
  10. I say go for it. also I looked at Magnussons website, I like the fact that they are water cooled. with only 30k on the engine it shouldn't be a problem. also you don't sound like the kinda guy who beats on his cars!
  11. ripp uses the air to air. I was working at a jeep shop in costa mesa in 2013 at the time. the customer seemed satisfied with the install results. my feeling is that if you change oil every 3k and don't abuse it will probably be fine. most 3.8 engine failures are due to lack of maintenance. also the jeep was not re-geared like yours. the install was not that hard, can be done in 1 day with basic tools. like I said the jeep was noticeably faster.
  12. I have installed ripp, made it a little faster but, IMO that it may not really be worth the cost. also those engines are not that strong internally. a re-gear offers more bang for the buck, also my personal opinion. I am sure others will chime in soon, good luck with whatever you do.
  13. seems like some of the older cars did not have vin tags kinda like some older trailers, I have a few right now myself. I don't really worry about it because of the low cost. I would be interested to find out if that was because dmv issued pinks without these buggys and trailers ever going to the chp for a tag.
  14. reminds me of my 2nd quicksand, does it really have 934s, mine only had 930s. someone spent more than 25k building this car for sure. remember that like anything else it is only a good deal if you can resell it tomorrow for what you paid today for it!
  15. I had 2 many years ago, both did well for me. resale price is not as good as your bigger builders which is why it probably looks like a good deal.
  16. I still basically only watch 7 channels fox sports, nbc sports, mav-tv, espn, cbs sports, channel 4 and 11 don't forget to watch travis on the history channel today tho!
  17. you know who this is, one of my favs. when I was young! back when we only had 7 channels to choose from. stay cool and hydrated everyone!
  18. I went there 2 years ago, nice lady at the beach entrance wanted to see a current green sticker, never looked at any reg. paperwork tho. I got the impression that if I did not have a current sticker then I could not take the vehicle in.
  19. got it, btw Omar at quicksand told me that a megasand was as strong as a 2d, altho that was a long time ago now that I think about it, crap I am getting old. again, congrats!
  20. good advice right there, have fun and learn what it takes to drive and maintain a long travel sand car. I also have been there, congrats! btw I had a megasand in my 1st quicksand behind a 3.0 v6 Nissan for years with no issues. don't know how they would do with a v8 tho.
  21. thanks, that's what I was looking for.
  22. I was having trouble with my rv power step, took the controller apart and found it to be full of sand(go figure). I thought about just wiring a switch and get rid of the controller. I don't care about automatic operation. I just want to extend and retract the step when I get to where I'm going. anybody done this and are they happy with the results? thanks in advance.
  23. sorry to hear about that, I just installed a curt style slider yesterday in a new 6.4 ram 2500, states in the instructions that even in the rear position that it is up to the end user to verify clearance.
  24. bump for a good deal, congrats on the new jeep! that top will fit older jks also and retails for more than twice what these folks are asking for it
  25. I did that one also, lot of fun! bigger, faster and more expensive.
