  1. You'd have to build the flag pulley assembly but look to an Electrical Supply house and get a 30ft light pole.
  2. Those look horrible to grill on.
  3. We had one. Kept it for two years trying and trying to get the perfect #. Best thing we did was a topper, then the sidewalls and center foam supports collapsed. Done went back to a full foam style. We had a tempurpedic and loved it except for the heat build up, now we have a casper it's just ok compared to the tempur.
  4. This thread is all over the place!
  5. next planned trip is Christmas/New Years we will go to Glamis first then stop for a few days in Parker to wheel the rocks with a few jeeps I'm sure there will be a few rides prior to that but they just aren't planned out yet
  6. That's in Parker, AZ on "President's Choice" rock trail. I bash my XX pretty hard. Dimpled two of the undercarriage bars on that trip. Now I have UHMW skid plates As far as all the drag out comments from people without XX's . Yeah after I "learned" the cars potential, I have now adjusted the ride height 3 times (springs keep sagging) and the shocks are always on 3 the firmest setting. I'm not a bling bling accessory guy, so I don't care for to much aftermarket stuff. I'm a DIY guy and built a bunch of the stuff I needed, see the SxS tech section. I will likely have the shocks tuned and resprung when I can afford It. We dune Dumont 3-4 times a year (Glamis once every few years and Oceano once every few years) the rest is desert trails and some rock trips. For sure it's not the fastest car and can't climb the big dunes in a straight line, but I do lead 95% of the time and all the turbo guys have fun cresting up higher then me but settle down to my pace for the fun lines.
  7. Only issue I have with my XX is not getting to ride enough! I had one axle fail at Dumont, covered by warranty.

  9. We did it years ago in Rhino's 26" tires. Wow we got the $h!t BEAT out of us. Took us 8hrs to go from Loon Lake (Ice House Rd) to Buck Island. We turned around and went back the next day. Bears! take stuff to hang your food up in the trees. No one told me this and I was the only one who did't have my gear up and bears came right in to camp to get it.
  10. While I have worked in the Telecom industry for over 20yrs and did a few years with a "cloud" provider, I learned enough to be not dangerous... DNS - domain name service is how www.glamisdunes.com gets converted from their IP address. Simple to use a whois lookup for the name to IP Our routers are given an IP address from the service provider but we don't get a domain. I'd have to dig deep and learn who you are to find your IP. I honestly don't care and have no time for that, but is Chromo better then DOM? See this right here is kaka
  11. When you visit a site (example; glamisdunes.com) a VPN only changes the origin of the IP request. You connected to the site and the site still see's you and your device, only IP is different. SIMPLEST WAY TO EXPLAIN Example; Your PC connects to (insert internet provider here) AT&T, AT&T gives your router an IP address ###.###.###.### (lets call it 10.10.10.10. Now every time your on the internet and ask for a web page ie; glamisdunes.com (which is IP address 23.19.64.7) a request is made from you 10.10.10.10 to 23.19.64.7 boom connection made yeah surf and enjoy. Now with a VPN Your PC connects to (insert internet provider here) AT&T, AT&T gives your router an IP address ###.###.###.### (lets call it 10.10.10.10. Now you turn on your VPN. You still have your 10.10.10.10 but now the VPN masks that with a new # say 20.20.20.20 Now every time your on the internet and ask for a web page ie; glamisdunes.com (which is IP address 23.19.64.7) a request is made from you 20.20.20.20 to 23.19.64.7 boom connection made yeah surf and enjoy, just behind a mask of sorts but it's still you... It really bugs me to hear commercials about how a VPN protects you and keeps you safe from prying eyes and blah blah blah They don't stop "tracking" or "targeting" at all. Internet geniuses flame on
  12. Went and got mine last week, not to bad of a process 1hr total... I took WAY more docs then they wanted/needed just to be sure I didn't have to go back. They had three people double check the info, plus filling out the same form three times, one on the renewal mailer, second on the computer, 3rd on another copy like the mailer. They are clearly collecting data for another use. Waiting on the snail mail now.
  13. I could see a local FFA, church, school or some non-profit using them. make a donation
