Looks like it will hold a laptop and all my tools and the pistol.
That one looks really big, like a full size back pack. Is that what you want? what about one of the LAPG bail out bags? or the extra large bail out bag? they arent a backpack, they are a hand held bag.

On a side note:
LA Police Gear is awesome. I have 4 pairs of their pants and 2 pairs of their shorts. As far as cargo pants (for work, hiking, shooting, camping, hot weather, cold weather, etc) are concerned, I'll never buy another brand.

I've had 2 pairs of them for over a year and they show ZERO signs of wear and I wear each pair a few times a week.

For 19.99 (often on sale for 17 bucks) you CANNOT go wrong.

Yeah, it does look big, but it will need to accommodate a laptop later this year, plus my hand tools. I like the backpack/nurse design because I'm often walking through casinos for long periods o time and a hand held bag gets tiresome quickly. I still would like to see one in person first.

I know I'm a bad person, but some of the comments on that middle eastern rollover accident were pretty funny. Just sayin.

Also sportsmans warehouse has a good deal of voodoo tactical bags and whatnot.

I actually didn't even look at any of the comments...


Anyone bored, wanna do me a favor? Go break into my garage and write "put oil in diffs" on my white board "to do" list for me since I just realized I haven't done that yet and it's not on my list and I really don't want to forget about it! LOL Wish I could text my dog and tell him to go add it for me! I just emailed myself and am not opening it till I get home. At least then I can walk out and add it to the list. That would be pretty ****ty!!!

Hey power, you put oil in those difs right? LOL

Thanks for that! I had seen those in the past and thought about it but never bought because I didn't know anyone that had any.

Ricky, I would be a bit shocked if it didn't show up looking like that.

I'll say, after mine was done, I figured out the anti squat but I don't even remember what it was. I used cad to figure out my pinion change and axle plunge and beyond that didn't really care. It's all important on the street and if you're racing pavement sure, in the dirt, throw most of the books in the trash cause the dirt doesn't react the way the books say the cars should. I was told one thing, make sure that lines of my uppers and lowers converge someplace out in front of my truck, beyond that, don't waste your time.

Anyone that doubts it is welcome to come ride in it when I'm not using it as my daily driver. For an untuned kinda weakly built truck it does pretty good and once I beef it up a bit more and put some time into the shocks it should do good enough to keep me more then happy.

Speaking of that, Ricky, tear down those rear shocks!!! Let's stiffen up that compression valving!!!

Couple jeep related items...

1st. I don't totally remember... I think this is '00-06 or '01-'06. Definitely not '99 and older. TJ... If you want one of these, I have 2 samples that are 100% completely functional, textured to match the stock plastic unlike this very early prototype and colored to almost match. I'm talking pretty darn close but not 100% perfect which is why they're free and not "accepted samples". Andy, you can have first dibs on one if you want it but seeing as how your jeep is short term supposedly I'd rather give them to someone that's going to get more use out them. If you really want one though let me know. If Andy doesn't speak up, then first 2 to come by and grab one from my house gets them. Andy likes his...






2nd... This might sound kinda strange but does anyone have a set of these RR hood hold downs on their jeep? If so, I'd like to check them out sometime in person if you didn't mind. I can come to you or whatever... The owner wants to do some sorta knock off version of them and try to undercut them just in spite of the countless other items that they've knocked off of ours. RR is very well known in the industry as the knock off kings! It's actually impressive how well they are at just copying others designs since some of it takes more work then just coming up with an idea from scratch. Copying shift knobs for instance... Easier to just start fresh rather then copying to be honest. But anyways, does anyone have one of these on their jeep? I'm just curious how they look and feel in person. If I can improve on them and also make them cheaper at the same time, why not...

Who cares about the KOH? How do those puppies handle the speed bumps at the mall?
