    This is totally off topic.... But this company really took care of me and I really want it to be known, so if anyone is looking for an air cleaner or cleaning products, and wants to support a good company that pays it forward....

    Moving weight... is there math to predict results?

    I’ve got my truck about 52/48 f/r with weight balance once my fat bum and the missus is in. I think... I have the opportunity to move the battery from the front to rear, behind the axle even. And if I am going to go through the headache of running all the wire, and building mounts etc, then I’m...

    For us not in the loop, who do we support

    We all have screen names and then real names. And quite frankly I’m not in the loop enough to know who is who. I have been fortunate enough to have been bailed out, given assistance and knowledge by some really big names in the offroad world through this forum. but these guys are not vendors...

    Long story short is my welder isn’t strong enough to weld in the baja kits bypass mounts to my truck. I was hoping to use my neighbors esab but his wife was just diagnosed with terminal cancer and... it’s really not a good idea to go borrowing stuff. this is also one of those things it’s...

    Ok. So this is way beyond me.... but I was watching a couple of really really really smart guys who build rockets talk about how triangles are not the strongest way anymore, but rectangles are.... it was just that the computers back then were only able to compute so much and it wasn’t enough to...
