Truth be told, the one thing I miss about film was ease of management and being limited to 36 exposures. My current digital library exceeds 15,000 images and any reason to not have to add to it seems like a good one. I was recently digging through some negatives from panamint valley and surprise canyon, all of my good wheeling pics are on film and I need to get them scanned some day. You have a good scanner?

I don't have one at all, actually. I thought about looking for one but I haven't found much of a use for it; I can't get the same quality of image as I can when I make a print, and I don't have any sort of programs to let me manipulate scanned images. I also thought about getting Photoshop but then I blew all my photography money on building an LED enlarger. It was pricey, but it makes the highlights in those pyro negatives just glow...

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

I hate digital. I have a huge library because of it. Now I use 4GB CF cards to limit the amount of pictures i take on each trip/event.

One of the best things I ever did was move to roll film and not shoot so much 35mm. I have a theoretical 16-frame limit on 120 film, but I cut that to 15 for making contact sheets. Having only 15 frames at a time...well, it's sharpened me, a bit. I don't "hit" any more often than I did with 36-exposure rolls, but there are a lot more "maybes" because I slow down and take my time.

Okay, photography derail concluded. Let's see some axle porn.

If you want a monster, take up digital videography!! I must have 10 4TB drives just with video and the time it takes to edit and produce a 3 minute video can take a week or longer. Agreed enough on the derail, I called Genright yesterday and my axle is supposed to be ready for PU along with King shocks and some body armor end of the month...

As for axle porn have you guys seen the new SCX axles from Currie, they are super cheap!!

What the hell is this and why is it important to my build?





After much deliberation I decided to sell my MK28 Closed Circuit Rebreather. I am currently not doing a lot of cave/wreck diving and the Meg is at the top of the food chain for CCR's, sold it to someone in Australia for $10,000 and that is going towards my Rig! Ordered 37" tires yesterday, next purchase is metal cloak joints and some DOM.

Hey, looking up things on the UA since I'm in the process of installing it on my heep, but initially I'm having no luck getting the crossmember up, since its just like yours and not the same as in their directons. And ran out of daylight so I'll be back at it tonite, but will go about it differently.

Yesterday I installed the trans mount loosely first and then the frameside C's that the crossmember bolts to, but the trans mount is in the way of the crossmember when I try to slip it in.

Did you do this the opposite way? Crossmember first, then the trans mount? I think it should work this way. Just lookin for some pointers since I can't get ahold of Gman.
