This is not a "build" thread. This is a "few upgrades here and there" thread.
My YJ was a great basic wheeling rig for several years and it never left me stranded. Then one day it started having electrical issues and my wheeling trips ended up like this:
So it got parked for some...
They are the latest and greatest construction material.
If anyone is interested in shipping containers as a building I am currently working on a container building project in Georgetown. Whether you want one just as a storage unit or to have a building built from them... we can do that...
Anyone know where I can get 2 bends done on a piece of 3/16 steel plate?
Preferably northend (Everett-Bellingham)?
I haven't measured the angles yet but I need this plate bent in 2 places to fit this contour-
I've been reading up on fuel cells but still have a couple questions- mabey I'm just overthinking.
I thought "fuel cells" had a plastic or rubber bladder and foam inside. So I am looking at the RCI 2161A for my jeep but it appears to have no bladder or foam. In fact many of the advertised...
For non-street legal, trailer only rigs do you have insurance on them?
Looking for responses to include type of rig (tube chassis, full bodied, or used to have a body) and type of license (ORV or vehicle license).
What type of insurnce do you have? Liability only, full coverage, etc.
I hate to start another stupid question tech thread but I'm stumped here.:scratchhead:
2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac 4.0L V6, auto, gas
Don't Fords normally have an inertia switch under the dash to relieve fuel system pressure? I can't find it and there is no Schrader valve either...
...for not delivering since 12/17!:mad:
In the future I will be sticking with the guys with the rain, snow, sleet, hail motto:awesomework:
Anyone else get screwed by no brown truck this Christmas? :stirpot:
I guess there are 5 semis in Arlington full of undelivered Christmas...
I'm looking at picking up a cheap tow rig to get me by until I can afford the diesel I really want.
I'm finding a lot of good deals on 3/4 and 1 ton Chevy's with the 350 and either 4 speed or TH350. Is the 350/TH350 gonna be able to tow my trailer and jeep? I know its not the best setup for...

Mabey its a repost but this is a gnarly tumble:beer:
Some cool little vids of tanks too
This ones badass :cool:
Any Bremerton locals? (I know Joop is gone:fawkdancesmiley: )
I just found out I'm going to be working in Bremerton for a few weeks and I am looking for info on hotels and restaurants.
Quick search found the Flagship Inn and the Chieftain Motel and the rates seem reasonable. Reasonable...
Strap and bolt method seems to work fine for road driving and light wheeling but obviously is NOT up to the task of rock crawling.
So I will be upgrading but I was looking for input from others on what is best. I have Dana 44s with 1330 joints and all the angles are good.
This is probably a really stupid question but does it matter which direction flow goes through a muffler?
I just got a new muffler for my Xj. The original had a centered inlet and offset outlet with stamped arrows pointing both directions. The new one has no arrows but is stamped 'outlet'...
Anyone on here do septic system installs or maintenance?
I have a 1 year old ATU/Whitewater system and I think the installer was an idiot. I am looking to just ask a couple questions to find out exactly whats going on with mine. Anyone knowledegable about these?
Anyone else on here playing it?
I'm not much into video games but this one is fawking cool:cool:
And I will admit I'm addicted :looser:
Plus if you've got kids its great for the youngins:fawkdancesmiley:
I didn't want to jack the other thread, but I'm wanting to know more about line locks also. I read in a build thread that they suck, they don't hold well, and Crash had his rig roll away :eeek:
So whats the deal with them? Not Jamars? What about mico locks? Or brass ball valves :eeek...
Anyone tow without trailer brakes?
I normally use them but my dad robbed the trailer brake controller for his motorhome.
Its a 2007 K2500 Silverado towing roughly 5000 lbs jeep and trailer.
Should it be fine for one trip or is it dangerous?
:mad: Parts stores are pissing me off. Shoulda gone to Napa. I didn't think dana 30 ball joints would be this difficult but apparently to the parts guy who doesn't speak jeep it is. Enough bitching here is my question-
Should upper and lower ball joints come from the same manufacturer...
A buddy of mine is bringing a Chevy truck over this weekend to put a 2.5" lift on. I am trying to figure out why someone would do this? Is there any advantages?
To me it sounds like $1200 to make the truck look cool and fit bigger tires. Its gonna get worse mileage, less power, more wind...
