  1. I think it was the FK3114G, I asked if the couch folded flat on the wall and he couldn't figure it out, if the couch folds flat and the floor somehow moves out of the way when the slide comes in, that would solve the problem.....maybe he was a new salesman? I'll check out the FFSA3217, I didn't think my truck was going to work with any 5th wheel toy hauler! Thanks
  2. 1Newbie, what did that set you back? Looks pretty sweet! Assuming the front is a bathroom, no bed?
  3. Went and looked at a 31’ Stealth today, but with the slide closed there’s no way a 4 seat RZR Turbo S with 72” width would fit..... plus the quality of the trailer was shit, I thought Stealth by Forest River was better than that. Curious what some of you guys have that’ll fit this newer wide RZR? It’s just the wife and I so want to try and stay away from massive units that’ll be harder to get into other campgrounds. But we like slides that open up living spaces. The 4 seat is around 12.5’ long too. Think I want a bumper pull, my truck is too tall right now for a 5th wheel, bed is 58” tall.
  4. Woke it up a lot, even from the bully dog tunes. Let’s the motor rev higher prior to shifting when on the gas and shifts much smoother. I’m not sure if it’s better than a DP tuner or Hydra, but this stock tune is far better than the Bully Dog tunes I had.
  5. I was towing today, flat bed with a couple pallets of rock. Have Matt throw the newest stock Ford tune on your truck! Mine shifts smooooooth
  6. Just wanted to give a shout out to Matt’s Caddy Shack in El Cajon for some work he did on my 2000 7.3L. It’s a new to me truck with 200,000 miles on it. The was a guy from El Cajon bought it from a family in Colorado. Belonged to a Ford mechanic that passed away, family didn’t know the history or work done to it. He brought it to CA and went to work on it, exhaust, intake, interior, headliner, Bully Dog, 2007 front end and tailgate, etc....had too many projects and sold to me. I had a 99 in the past that I had John Woods replace the TC and work the trans valves, install a 6.0 trans cooler and DP tuner. Loved that truck minus the harsh ride. On this truck I had to add a brake controller, relays and fuses, don’t think it ever towed anything heavy. I thought it drove OK for an old 7.3l, not a ton of power but ran good. I took off the Bully Dog to get it smogged and It ran like a giant turd, horrible. Put the bully dog tune on it and thought sooo much better. Need it to tow a travel trailer and soon for another toy hauler. Posted on FB in Alpine asking if anyone works on 7.3L that does clean work. Matt Ford responded that he owns Matt’s Caddy Shack and has been driving his 7.3L forever, knows the truck very well. Super clean Trans cooler install and he found a leak back by my turbo, pulled it apart, fixed it and CLEANED up this 20 yr old motor! Amazing attention to detail! Matt called me and said, hey, you interested in trying out the latest Factory Ford 7.3L tune? We’re a Ford authorized aftermarket shop.....I thought, what the hell, I know how to put the Bully Dog tune back in it. Got the truck back thinking it’ll drive like a pig again.....it’s Soooooooo much better then the Bully Dog tune! And NOTHING like the factory Ford tune that was on it. He’s got my business for life!
  7. Been out of the desert stuff for a long time, bought a 26’ Forest River trailer that I love and it’s too small for my adult kids to be inviting themselves out to the beach with us. Now my wife saw our grandson at the desert and she wants me to get a toy hauler and 4 seat RZR😎 not sure what I want yet, small 5th wheel maybe? My question is, how long are the 4 seat RZR’s so I know what cargo length I need and will a RZR with larger than stock tires fit in a TH with a Living room slide? Anyone looking to unload their TH and RZR but want a camper for the beach?
  8. Great cars, have the 2015 and never had a prob with it. Gets killer mileage too
  9. They’re down the street from me in Alpine. I’m not sure who the good Diesel guys are out here. Was thinking I’d just hire the OP! He seems to know everything about these trucks

    WANTED Iphone 6 OR 6S

    I have some unlocked 6s 32G iPhones that are unlocked. We used them on Verizon but someone that bought one put it on Sprint and said it works fine. $100
  11. I haven't been on this site for a long time....last night I went on here to see if there were any 2015-2016 F250's for sale and I came across this thread. Finished reading it this morning and I'm thinking I might want to keep my 7.3, what a great read with lots of good info! Bought this 2000 a couple months ago to take the place of a 2015 F150 2.7L that was just struggling to pull my 26' trailer. Wife wants to get back into the desert scene so I bought this from my brother in law who bought it from someone in El Cajon. He knows nothing about the truck minus the guy "went through everything". He only kept it for 3 months then bought a raptor. Stopped by East County Diesel and they said it had all kinds of nice new parts on it, but they didn't know the truck. So other than the fact I know it's super clean, has 200K miles, and lots of new parts, has never towed anything (I had to install all the tow relays, fuses and plug), has a bully dog programmer, AFE intake and new exhaust, I know nothing about the transmission or engine. A few of you guys are in East County, does anyone recognize this truck? Only thing my brother in law did was swap out the wheels, I think it had chrome wheels on it and he went to black. I sure would like to know if any trans or motor work has been done to this truck so I have a baseline and figure out if I need to visit John Woods prior to getting back into a toy hauler and RZR setup. Keep up the post, lots of great info!
  12. I just called and spoke with Art Welch at Paul Cooks office and had a good conversation. He explained the following. Paul Cook wanted to sponsor a bill regarding a helmet law and DID NOT know language was going to be added about the feet on the floorboard, little kids in car seats or about modifications (back seats, roll-cages) making the UTV illegal. Art stated their office is currently working on changing the language of the bill to remove the above issues. I asked about helmets in UTV's and dune buggies and if they were actually required in dune buggies as well and he said the language is unclear and they're working on that. I also expressed to him that MANY of us get off motorcycles and quads and spend more money to get into a UTV or dune buggy to be surrounded by a roll-cage and be able to ride without helmets if we so choose. And that many of us have invested a considerable amount of money towards radios, intercoms and headsets for safety during our rides. I urged him to have the office re-consider the helmet law. He didn't sound moved...but stated their office has been getting a lot of phone calls and are now realizing people aren't keen on this new law. MORE PEOPLE NEED TO CALL AND VOICE THEIR OPINION!!!!! They are working on new language NOW!! Now is the time to call and tell them how this will effect you and your family. I really urge you all to make a 5-10 minute call, it will really make a difference and they're very pleasent to talk to and really are taking our comments into consideration!! Paul Cook's office 909-790-4196 He also asked me to send links to forums so he can see what people are saying about this. I will send this link and one I know of on RZR Forums.... if you have other's list them and he will see them in this post or I'll forward them as well. Dale
  13. I just sent the following email to Assemblymember.Cook@assembly.ca.gov and will forward to all the other representatives and legislators I can reach out too. You're more then welcome to copy/paste/revise. Talking about it on the forums is one thing, but reaching out to our reps is the only way we can hope for a voice. Assembly member Cook, Today I spoke with another enthusiastic off-roader and learned of AB 1595. I started reading about this on the various off-road forums and realized NONE of us knew this was in the works. If we would have known about it, we would have offered our voice against it! Even your own news letter has NO mention about what this new law does to off-roaders in CA http://republican.assembly.ca.gov/member/6...&height=600 Assemblyman Paul Cook introduced three measures to reduce state taxes and get California's economy moving again. Together, these bills would provide tax relief to working Californians, small businesses, and retailers. AB 1595 would provide across-the-board sales tax relief for Californians for as long as the economy continues to struggle. If the state unemployment rate does not drop below 8% in the last two quarters of 2012, AB 1595 would reduce the state sales tax by half a percent beginning on July 1, 2013. This would provide an immediate boost to California retailers, while also boosting the spending power for working Californians. The reduction would remain in effect until California's economy has recovered and state unemployment has dropped below 8% for 3 consecutive quarters. Please tell me where your newsletter talks about how our children can no longer ride with us in our off-road UTV’s because their feet can’t touch the floorboard?? Where does it talk about how I have to now wear a helmet in my UTV with a roll cage that rivals any helmet worn by a motorcyclist? Many of us have left riding motorcycles so that we can ride in our off road vehicles WITHOUT helmets and we have also invested in expensive radio headsets in order to communicate with each other if we break down or there’s a need to warn each other about road conditions ahead. Why is it that CA, the State that I grew up in and love, is on the forefront of stripping the rights of the citizens who live here with gun laws, vehicles codes, business taxes and now off-road laws that push our citizens and business owners to leave this state! Your efforts should be focused on the LAZY, Government subsidized leaches that refuse to work because of their Gov checks and drain the tax dollar from the hard working citizens of this State.
  14. Check this out.... Newsletter on Cooks site Assemblyman Cook Introduces Bills to Cut Taxes on Californians Assemblyman Paul Cook introduced three measures to reduce state taxes and get California's economy moving again. Together, these bills would provide tax relief to working Californians, small businesses, and retailers. AB 1595 would provide across-the-board sales tax relief for Californians for as long as the economy continues to struggle.

The reduction would remain in effect until California's economy has recovered and state unemployment has dropped below 8% for 3 consecutive quarters. WTF is he talking about??? Talk about confusing the voter!! I would suggest we ALL make a 5 min phone call to this person and voice your concerns about wearing helmets, kids can't ride in your UTV and quit enacting laws without talking to the people they effect!! What a crock of shit. Here's some contact info from the RZR forums. I called the number and Talked to the lady that did the analysis, she was glad to hear from an offroader. She said she did not know where to talk to folks about the bill that were on the other side of it. I gave her several websites and groups where she could get the "opposition" she needed for these types of bills. I also called Rohva and they were supported by all the big players, not just kawi. If you want to call and vent your frustration here is the number to their washington office. 703-416-0444 Victoria Alvarez / TRANS. / (916) 319- 2093 is the very polite woman I talked to that did the analysis.
