  1. what kind of truck runs a 425/65 for a steer tire i have only seen them on the back super singles
  2. i have hankook tires on my DP i like them and have run them on some other trucks without a problem i dont know there the commercial tires are made but the have a manufacturing facility in the USA https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/hankook-tire-celebrates-grand-opening-of-first-us-manufacturing-plant-300538239.html
  3. so if your state doesn't offer a non commercial A or B licence can they write you a ticket in their state or do they require you to get a commercial licence ???
  4. the easiest and most cost effective might to get a exemption from the state to allow ohv on a 500ft of 78 at the crossing.
  5. the trails on the other side of the tracks is great best on a windy day in the dunes keeps the dust moving along. ive been to tumco gold mine, the calorado river, palo verde, up the bradshaw trail to general pattons museum, red canyon jeep trail, explored may different washes over to glamis north a great place for food, a few other misc gold mines,geod beds there is alot to see out there . all the trails are marked and you can download the maps and import them into lead nav. I hope they open up a legal crossing it would be nice to be able to do what we do and not worry about getting in trouble.
  6. i have lead nav and use the duel puck it works great and very user friendly just make sure you wire a good charger in the car. i use it for the music and nav
  7. omg i think i would have to be almost dead before i ever get into a basket

    CV Grease

    a 33 inch tire turns at 630 rpm at 60 mph. and like you said the bearings dont move that much unless there is a extreme angle. if some one wanted to do comparison with a heat gun i would like to see the results. i have a tub grinder here and have tried all kinds of grease red grease, chassie grease, timkin mill bearing grease they all seemed to do the same except the grease i use now which is from conoco phillips mining grease high molly ep2 and its only slightly better. 249.00 a pail the mill runs at 1800 rpm 880 hp from a c27 cat. the timkin stuff was 40 a tube so the price vs quality dosent apply to grease. i actually had more problems over greasing which can also make a bearing run hot
  10. i had a ls1 2d combo in the limo 1st 2 yrs great 3rd season started to make some noise needed a few bearings and gears ran it 2 more seasons and up graded to a pbs i think by that time the ring and pinion were on the way out. the only other thing that broke was a 934 drive flange it sheared off the splines behind china wall where everything seems to break lol. I had stopped in some real soft stuff and dumped the clutch and found the weakest link other than that i loved that trans shifted great. the last season with the 2d i knew i was upgrading the motor and trans so i wasnt easy at all and it held up to alot of abuse.
  11. I used a hilift jack in one of the bowls behind olds worked great
  12. ive used a hilift jack a few time they do work great but they are big and bulky. i have a short version with a bar mount on the sxs. on the rail if you get stuck you can put the jack right in the center of the wheel and lift the wheel right out of the hole. rap a rag around the lifting pad to protect the wheel and a pice of wood would help with the jack sinking in the sand but it is not totally required. i only got stuck in the dunes twice many years ago once with out a jack and once with the first time it took a few hours and the second time i was un stuck in just a few minutes. also used it to do some repairs had to change a tire once out in a bowl worked fine for that to. keep some wd40 around cause the ratcheting like to stick with sand stuck in it.
  13. i just hope it didnt end like polaris says it " a unintended thermal event" the pressures in a shock are alot higher during use just starting with 150 psi nitrogen charge then the added pressure of the spring on rebound i would be real curious to know the actual pressures inside a shock in thinking the would be north of 1000 psi
  14. ok my rzr turbo 2017 front shock started leaking in 2018 only a few months old and didnt sit much. I rebuilt them my self bought new seals from schmitty racing the stock seals were soft rubber and the replacements were harder maybe viton but seemed to be a much better quality. The shocks in the rail were rebuilt about 5 yrs ago bu shock therapy at glamis and they dont leak and they sit for 8 months every year in a trailer at gds in the heat. so i think it has more to do with the quality of the seals and the condition of the bearing in the head of the shock. if the bearing/bushing is worn it allows for the shaft to sit not centered also indexing of the coils on the spacer to prevent any side load. If they damaged a seal while the rebuild i think they would start leaking right away and leak really bad while in use http://www.kingshocks.com/products/parts/replacement-parts/ number 18 is the bearing i was referring to
