    recomendation - San Diego A/C shop

    Howdy - My '91 cummins tow rig needs the A/C worked on. Probably just filled. Probably R12. Can anyone recommend a shop in the SD area who will do a good job for a reasonable price, and not steal my truck?

    Sand Hollow, May 2015

    Located in the St. George / Hurricane / Washington area in the state of Utah, this is hands down the coolest hard core rock crawling I've ever done. A bunch of Canadian rock crawler guys I've competed with have an annual Moab trip in May, and decided for their 10th year, to try a new location...

    Snow Wheeling! (not really) Tampico 3-28-15

    After riding there last friday, I convinced my buddy that we needed to make a trip over there. The trees are spaced so much further apart than the terrain we usually ride on the west side of the state. So we let his place in Gig Harbor about 5:10am Saturday, and unloaded at treephones...

    Wanted: 4wd AX-15

    Need one for the buggy. If you've got one taking space in your garage, sell it to me so it will take up space in mine! Buggy is a '92, not sure if that part matters. I'm in Port Orchard, WA but don't mind driving.

    Lower control arm mounts

    I cant take credit for inventing this, I think I stole the idea from Goatman or Crash a bunch of years ago.... but here goes: In today's world of suspension building where most folks opt to buy pre-fabricated brackets, and then struggle to make them work on whats left of their frame, I thought...

    Naches 10-4-13

    Started the pre-trip prep by breaking the weld holding my orbital input spud to the steering column connecting u-joint. Turns out the CRES 303 Flaming River U-joint that specifically says not to weld it, really means it. Even using 316L and 308 filler the repair weld still cracked out. So I...
