  1. What tire pressure do you run? Ive talked to different people, and get different answers. Max pressure on my trailer is 80psi. I usually run somewhere between 70-75psi unloaded. I’ve been told to run the max, i’ve been told I run too much, and ive been told what i’m doing is good. I’m no tire expert by any means, so I figured I ask the group what your thoughts are.
  2. Yeah, after a little research, I figured that out. Lol! Appreciate app the info everyone!
  3. Left Glamis on Wednesday, and Honda was already set up for demo rides
  4. This is basically what i’m looking at doing. Normally those are powered by an 120 vac to 12vdc power source. Did you just wire the leds directly to 12v?
  5. I want to add a set of led lights to the under side of my trailer, and i’m having trouble finding ones that I think will work. I want to hook them up to 12v, without having to use a inverter. All the led ropes and strips on Amazon & eBay seem to utilize a 110vac - 12vdc inverter. What has everyone used?
  6. I have the stock one on there still. Thanks
  7. I appreciate it, but I upgraded them. I also have the stock ones laying around.
  8. 😂 I have upgraded the links, but if the arm breaks, i’m out of luck, I guess. Joe fab will just get some more business
  9. Took my Can am out the Glamis the weekend before Veterans weekend, and it handled great. That was our first time back in Glamis since 2012, when I had my Rhino. What an amazing difference. SXS’s have come such a long way. The power and suspension is incredible, and I know with tuning, both will improve. It took me wherever I wanted to go, with ease, and pretty much at whatever speed I wanted. It climbs hills, goes through whoops, and dunes amazing. In speaking with a couple people, they suggested that I remove the front sway bar, for better duning and transitioning. Does doing this really make that much of a difference? I suppose I could try, and see how it does, and how I like it, but I figured i’d ask first. Appreciate the feedback
  10. Wasn’t able to make it. I’ll have to plan for next year. Looks like an amazing ceremony, and I understand and appreciate the amount effort of all involved, but I am curious about letting the flag hit the ground. I was always taught, that under no circumstance, was an American flag allowed to hit the deck, or anything below it. Not trying to stir the pot, just looking for clarification.
  11. Yep, full frame. Just transfer your stock latches.
  12. Contacted Grant @ Funco, an he set me up with some of his doors. Picked them up yesterday after work, only to get home and discover the power had been out since 1:30. After wrangling up a generator, and getting the refrigerators situated, I was able to start on the doors. Upon opening the box, I discovered everything to be packaged up pretty nicely, and the finish on the panels and frames looked great. One thing that wasn’t in the box, was instructions. “I figured how hard could it be?” I’ve built cars, houses, power lines, electrical substations, etc., this should be a piece of cake. Well 3 hours in, with a small light and flashlight, and I had one side up. I called it a night, and messaged Grant to see if there were any instructions he could send, and he went as far as to offer up one of his guys (via. phone), to walk me through it. I didn’t take him up on it, because I figured I give it a shot when I got home, and had some light. 30 minutes was all it took Anyways, if you’re looking for a nice set of doors, for a good price, and great customer service, look no further than Grant and his team at Funco.
  13. Those look nice! Is that just a door skin, or complete door with frame?
  14. Looks good! My only concern with the skins as opposed to the doors with the entire frame, would be that they might be flimsy. Rattling is something I can deal with, or do like you did, and foam it or glue down some upholstery.
  15. Yes, i’ve considered it, but I prefer the look of the aftermarket full one-piece aluminum door. I don’t mind paying the price for the aftermarket door, I am more interested in peoples experience with different manufacturers, and the final fit and finish of the product. A reasonable price, would just be a bonus.
  16. Front end gusset kit is already done, and I have an Extreme lower arm reinforcement kit is sitting in the garage. Just haven’t gotten around to installing it yet. Full shock rework with springs will go down next year after I get through the holidays. I like the looks of full doors, and the idea of keeping dirt and debris out of the passenger compartment, so that’s why those are getting done soon. Not too fond of the looks of BRP lowers, or full doors, so that’s why i’m looking at aftermarket.
  17. I have been looking at doors for my X3 (4-seater) lately, and I have noticed that there are a ton of options. Some are skins that use the factory frames, and others are full custom frames and skin (I’m not really interested in buying the lowers and adding them to the factory doors). I have also noticed when reading up a little, that some doors don’t always fit well, and require a little “massaging” or “reworking” to install. I was going to wait until next year, but the more I look at my X3, the more I want to pull the trigger sooner, and put some on. With that being said, what are some of your recommendations and experiences with some of the aftermarket doors and their fit and finish? Which do you have, and if you had to do it all over again, would you go the same route?
  18. UPS pulled up, just as I got home from work this afternoon. Got it all unpacked and installed. Helmets should be here tomorrowz
  19. After much thought, I ended up ordering the S&B particle separator, and Klim helmets. Should be here by 10/29, and that gives everyone time to install it by our 1st trip 11/1. I’ll try them out on the first trip, and if I need to modify the helmets, then I can do that afterwards. Thanks for all the replies 👍🏻
  20. Use this link to find official petition locations. Pass it along to your friends and family. https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1I8qpxC6YdrOc3mfJeK_-A1k7tlVvgdIQ&shorturl=1&ll=36.68145213995049%2C-120.39353004935253&z=7
  21. Looking at these two pumpers (PCI & Rugged) for my Can am, and would like opinions of those who have experience with either. Also, looking at helmets, what would you recommend? I have been looking at the Klim, Bell Qualifier, and the RaceQuip. Thanks!
  22. True! Also, come to find out, that flipping the shocks is required when installing the Geiser shock mount bracket. Resi’s will hit the bracket if you don’t.
  23. Just installed the Assault bulkhead reinforcement kit, Geiger shock tower bracket, and decided to flip my shocks. No real benefit, just like the way it looks. Question: How much of the plastics do you cut for clearance? Anyone have pics?
