  1. It's also covered in Havasu 4 Wheelers stickers for past runs, and above the windshield are all of the club badges from when he first bought jeep. The hood scoop has to go though. Just need to find something clean to cover up the hole in the hood.
  2. Well I finally joined the Jeep club. I've been shopping for a while looking for something to tow behind my motorhome. I was out at my place in Topock unsupervised, and ran across this ad for this jeep. I had nothing to do so I ran over to Havasu to take a look at it since the ad was very vague and really no details, but it looked clean in the 1 picture they had. Turned out to be a sort of Estate sale, as the older gentleman that owned it was in a home with Alzheimer's (pretty damn devastating disease). The sellers didn't know much about the jeep and couldn't really ask the owner. Well the jeep turned out to be an 01' Sahara with only 71K miles on it and was SUPER clean, with some actually goodies on it. It's got some sort of lift, with aftermarket rear upper and lower arms, front lower arms, and Antirock sway bar in the front, winch, skid plates, on board ARB compressor, and a whole bunch of "old man" gadgets (compass, altimeter, outside air temp thingy, CB) which I love and will be keeping in the jeep. Oh yeah, and it came with a new tow bar, and is already wired up to be towed. This stupid scoop really needs to go, but I can't find anything I like, I like the clean understated look of this thing, and don't really want to put one of those giant hood vents on it. I immediately called my buddy and told him I wanted to do my first trail, so after I got it back to Topock, we took it out to some mines and cool trails near Oatman. THEN, I called the wife to let her know we had a new jeep, She was not impressed with so called "work week" at the river house. I've already ordered an adjustable track bar to fix some steering issues, and some Fox shocks for it. It needs some tires, but the wife said I can't buy tires and wheels for it until after the COVID-19 shift since she's not working.
  3. I have a new Raptor, and you electronically put it in "flat tow mode". I was wanting to flat tow my Raptor, and It was expensive to set it up, Tow hook mounts, tow bar, and then the braking system, which is one of those "brake buddy" systems. I'm speculating that the brake buddy system is what failed and it was applying the brakes until they go so hot that something failed. I'm definitely interested in learning more. I'm going to show this to the "boss" since I told her a couple months ago that I didn't want to flat tow the Raptor, and I wanted to just buy a Jeep or something so that if something did happen, I would only be out a jeep, not my Raptor.
  4. Depends on the steel, low chrome alloys should always be stress relieved, well depending on thickness. I'm actually making some repairs to some Chromoly spring plates at work, and they will be first pre-heated to 300 deg, then the cracks removed, welded and then stress relieved.
  5. OK, what do you want for the Wagoneer?
  6. Yes long bars, they should be part number 31226. 26 9/16" long, I could probably get away with 25mm bars and just put a little more pre-load in them. Are you're new or really low miles? Mine passed the crack check, but Sway A Way recommended I replace them since they have a couple thousand miles on them.
  7. Does anyone have a hook up on parts, or a dealer for Sway A Away? I need some new torsion bars for my Class 11 car before the Mint 400, but the 300M bars are $850, and with a motor prep, trans prep, shock prep etc.....I'm hoping to see if I can save a little money somewhere.
  8. That was super cross legend Andrew Short.
  9. Casie Curry also won SXS class, so 2 Americans won this year!
  10. I'd really be interested in these if you can download them into a Lowrance if you know. I have a place near needles, on the AZ side, and these would be very useful.
