Re: 2 Into 1 Installation

I finally got around to installing my 2 into 1 high right side exhaust. I didn't have to remove/replace the original studs on my '15 GU. Everything went on smoothly and I'm pleased with the result. We'll see over time how it stands up but at the very least I won't have to wack the left pontoon back ...

Re: Check your rims for cracks.

I believe the some cracks may have little to do with "mileage" as I had cracks on my '15 GU spare that never was on the ground. The rim was 2013 vintage and replaced under warranty

2 Into 1 Installation

Why are new studs included in the Raceway kit? I'd rather not remove/replace the factory studs if it isn't necessary.

Re: Newbie: should I be using the parking brake?

I have an aversion to such things, A. you'll never see a vehicle factory designed to use permanent hydraulic pressure to keep it from rolling away; B. I've had the front tyre not hold on a slope, and that's solos never mind a X00 lbs rig. YMMV http://livinginthepast-audioweb.co.uk/imagex/misc/idunn...

Re: Experience With Winch

substituting a Harbor Freight "Badlands" brand ATV winch. I have the Harbor Freight Badlands 2500 on my 6 wheeler and so far it has done the job. In that case I had to cobble-up all the wiring and controls and thought the Ural kit at URAL NE might be cleaner, but I'd not be comfortable having it mo...

Re: Chattahoochee National Forest Closures

We’ve had the Drainbows invade us several times in Central Orygun. My condolences. To their credit, they did leave the forest in impecable shape via amazingly thorough clean-up crews. That's encouraging. I spend a lot of time in the National Forest and would hate to see it requiring a long time to ...

Chattahoochee National Forest Closures

Anyone planning a holiday forest service ride in the southern portion of this forest take note that there are many roads closed due to a week long (7/2 - 7/7 "encampment" by thousands from the Rainbow Family. (Google Rainbow Family Dahlonega for the latest info).

WW 2 Sidecar Rigs

Did the German (or Russian) sidecar rigs used during WW 2 have reverse and/or two wheel drive?
