  1. They are wonderful pets dogs. I have learned. Sorry for your loss.
  2. Anyone have a map of where Superstition is? I don't think I ever been.
  3. My wife and kids have been talking about getting one for years. We finally decided to get on. I am particularly looking for one with bunks. We also think it will be much easier. Pack up early, load trailer, sleep and leave early, eat on the road. We are realizing that the benefits out weight the con's.
  4. Me too! I'm actually looking for a Supper C now but used and no where near 175k.

    5.3 power?

    I started to look at a 5.3 also I was thinking about a L33 but now I think why not get a L83 since it will be newer and less miles on it. Only issue is I'm not sure if there are any stand alone ECU for them.
  7. Do you by any chance have pictures? Just curious to see what some people deal with. My family and I were thinking of staying where we do not need to air down.
  8. Thank you Andy I appropriate you giving me a call and talking about your build with me. It sounds like what I need to do. We have the same goal, "The goal was STOCK Reliability PERIOD."(POULE43) And my 2D is actually geared for a V8 car.
  9. Lol Funny after I posted the question I did just that.
  10. Hello Rockwood which cars have this engine so I can keep a eye out on them.
  11. Thank you J Alper. I will hit you up if this is the route I take.
  12. Hello All, Does anyone have a LS1 or LS2 stock engine sitting around. My Honda 3.2 is acting up. The oil pressure goes up and down and goes in limp mode the pressure goes over 75 and close to 100. I was able to use it like it was but I need to go slow and in first gear. I'm glad it made to the last day. I'm planing to run diagnostics next weekend. I might just buy another 3.2 for now at the junk yard and force myself to take it easy till next season. Question for the Honda guys, " Will the J32A1 adapter plate work for the 3.5"? Is there a preferred model that I should get? I was thinking of getting a 4.3 and stay with a V6 - maybe Trubo it. I like them engines I know they are heavy though but they seem reliable.
  13. Thank you Rockwood. I was thinking of getting some of the blue radiator hose since that has a lot of rubber on it.
  14. Wow! to say the least. I purchased some quadruple bypass and softer springs for the sandcar and I could not believe the difference in the ride. I'm blown away and the wife and kids are now on board with the sandrail than the SXS. Such a nice soft ride and I didn't bottom out hard too much; I'm not sure I did. what a difference. Before I had 400-10in/500-12in now I went to 300-14in/400-16in. Before I was bucking like crazy all over the place. I could not go fast at on sand hwy unless I was going full speed. Now I can at least go a decent speed on sand hwy. Zero shock issues on this run. Im blown away. I cant wait to do the front now. I need to figure out a way to add them. I will need to resign the front arms for sure. I total feel the front bucking now. Fix one thing then the next! lol Story of the buggy life.
