Nah whos needs AC, thats why were going at night, that temp is for Ocotillo not Ocotillo Wells, Ocotillo wells is usally a bit cooler because its not as far south and as low of an elevation.

Working on it, cut the whole front end off, bulding radiator supports right now, then just need to figure out sometime for that damn air intake system.

I need a adapter plate like what you have so I can just run a cone there instead of that big stupid box crap!

you cut off the inner fender wells and all? how are you going to mount your glass? Careful I have gotten 2 fixit tickets in the passed 2 days.
1: for no mud flaps all the way around.
2: no front plate.
3: expired tags (they're paid for but the damn DMV sent them to the wrong address.)
4: For not correcting the fact that the DMV has my wrong address.

SUCKS huh!

The glass mounts off the support bars, the cops around here are pretty cool, (knock on wood).

Austin-

A couple friends and I had the same idea. Go out Friday night, ride early Sat. I dunno exactly where we are gonna be..most likely off Main St. Black Jeep Cherokee, Red Chevy Z71, Bright Blue GMC 2WD. See you out there.

The kicker was that he didn't even know the code and he had to look it up in his cheap sheet handbook, then he would walk around my truck then go back to his book. All in all, I feel lucky that he only wrote me up for these minor fixit tix cause he could have done alot more. True be told though, I think he was having a hard time finding the violation in his handbook - for example he was staring at my fuel cell then he'd go flipping through his book and then walk up to the back of my truck again looking at my shock cage but I didn't get written up for any of that. I found it kind of funny.

The officer in HB (the next day) pulled me over and was like "I wish I had a camera so I could show my buddies all the violations on this truck." So I jumped in right away with, I did just get a ticket yesterday, so he asked questions making sure I wasn't blowing smoke but then he wrote me up for the wrong address with the DMV. Was funny when his buddy pulled up for backup and came to talk to me about how my truck is really unsafe to ride on the street - since I was feeling a little cocky and I knew I was going to only be getting fix it tickets I started asking why. He started with "Its structurally unsafe" so I asked what made it unsafe the roll cage? The bed cage? The 1.5" bumpers front and rear? the 5 point harnesses? So he then restated..."Well with no fenders you can throw road debris onto your winsheild, which COULD impair my visability" for that I told him my fenders were on order (which they are, sort of)

Anyways, they are all at least easy to fix tickets.

Your lucky they didnt get ya for the 5 points, that can be a pain to put the stock ones back in to pass it.

Yup I was told its because if they are not used correctly they can be more dangerous.
Also it takes a brain to use them kinda, stock ones you just plug one thing in and go.

They can't have something be legal if it takes a little brain power to use :)

actually 5 points are not illegal, what is illegal is removing the stock safety belts if you leave the stock ones in(and run 5 points) you cant get a ticket or at least keep them so you can put them back in to sign off afix-it. Was told this at last traffic school class.

An earlier thread mentioned that the belts have to have the D.O.T. tag on them to be legal.

Funny...I drive all over southern calif working construction, Truck loaded to the gills and have not had a ticket or even been pulled over in 8 years. Granted, I still have all my bed, but my front tires are way out there. Dont take this wrong, but maybe it's the way you "kids" drive....lol
