    Did you notice any difference at all after you set the Fox Race Tune?

    Green new deal

    You and me both. They're everywhere. Standing on the curb, 3 feet from traffic, staring at their phone, oblivious, waiting to cross. I see them all day long. Some of them are even able to drive. Somehow, they always end up in front of me in no passing zones.

    sand mountain

    Yup. Google even mounted a camera on a quad and took a ride around the area. You can cruise it on street view.

    Today's Highway star

    Looks like a 70-72 LT-1. Purty nice if it's a '70.

    Theft prevention ideas. Buggies, Tow Rig, etc.

    Good that you've thought it through. Sounds like you could serve up a good beat down, if necessary. Have some Flex-Cuffs handy too. Makes the wait for the cops more comfortable for you. Always have the mindset that somebody already there might have found one of your loaded weapons. I'm usually armed myself. All of my firearms (except the one I carry) are unloaded and locked up when I'm not home. Every time I come home, unless I know family is already there, I check for signs of a burglary before I relax. I'll never break this habit. My Glock's on the nightstand, covered with the sports section at night. I guess I'm living is a constant state of Yellow with an occasional burst of Orange. That last sentence is the answer to the OP's question of how I keep my stuff safe. That, plus my insurance agent for peace of mind.

    It seems like it is, doesn't it? What's your plan if you catch someone in the act?

    Super Bowl criticism here....

    Didn't watch it either. Don't miss football even one iota. Watched Titanic (again) with the wife. Turns out, I scored more points than the Rams did.

    RZR Turbo S Velocity Thoughts?

    That is also my experience with Polaris. Your mileage may vary. I finally thought I was settled in with Can Am, and happy, then Textron shows up. Does Will it ever end?

    Nice. Tempting. 2000 lbs. = 1 Ton.

    Let’s discuss Quick Release whip mounts

    Not me. True to the bone. Or less. It's simple, and they work. I enjoyed the turn of the century.

    2008 SCU Midbro

    Don changed the design of at least the lower a-arm around August, 2009. I don't know if the new design make them any stronger, or just gave them a different look. I believe my SCU was the first one he put out with the newer design. I'm not sure if he's had more changes, but it has been 10 years, so best to go right to the source unless another GD.com member has more info. I believe the older design was plenty stout. Good idea to check/change out the heim joints and have someone in the business check the arms while you're at it. Here's pics of the newer design, and pics of the car built right before mine. It belonged to Ocotillo Boy.

    Permit Ticket

    In your first post, you said you are from SC. I kind of figured.....So. Cal. Where's SC? Schitt$ Creek? South Carolina? Are you flying in from the East Coast?

    Ride height and the California lean

    Thank you, stumpalump. "California lean". I did not know that was a thing. I've just always thought those guys had an attention span that was shorter than the wheelbase of their trucks. Me smarter now.

    Let me say this about that. I bought a new Can Am X3 RC from the dealer in Parker, Az., and put 20 miles on it on Parker streets to start the break-in. Got to Ogilby a week later, unloaded, and drove toward the UPRR tracks (flat desert) with two other SxS's on a slower break-in continuation. At 23 miles, the right upper A-arm disconnected from the frame because there had never been a nut put on the bolt that secures it to the frame. The bolt worked it's way out, and sheared in half. The SxS was un-drivable and un-towable. From the scene, I called the dealer in Parker just to get bolt specs. No Help. Then I called the dealer in Yuma and they were even less help......"Bring it in. We'll look at it." So............then I called Coyne. Your parts guy was the only one who cared enough to pull up a diagram, locate the bolt, nut and adjacent relevant damaged parts and check his stock (had it all). He spent about a half hour helping me over the phone. First rate customer service right there. We sent a SxS back to camp. Used a floor jack to get everything aligned and an SAE bolt as a bandaid to get it together enough for a 3-5 MPH putt back to camp and went to El Centro for the correct parts. Thank you for supporting GD.com
  22. I'm really sorry I posted that picture. After the post came up, I looked at it, and regurgitated some coffee into my throat.
  23. Because Kalifornia politics be Kray Kray. I know. I'm from there. My parents were Democrats. They loved Moonbeam's dad. But I really think my dad was a voting booth Republican. He just didn't want to piss off mom.

    Thanks for the help GD.

    X 2. And I'd look closer at the 17' garage model with the salvage title if I were you and don't mind the garage instead of open storage space. Says he bought it at a police auction and gutted it to rebuild it the way he wanted with what was available from WW and then used higher quality stuff. I went to the seller's FB page and he seems solid. Works for American Airlines. Pilots larger aircraft. Put a lot on FB about himself. Lots of dune pictures and info. Looks like a real enthusiast that might answer your questions honestly. Lives in Phoenix (probably the Sky Harbor Airport thing), has the trailer in Tucson. PM me. I don't know the seller, but if it's an option and I can help, I will.
