oh, I see how it is, my custom welds weren't good enough huh? LOL Are the proper ones a bit more formed and less flat plate like for strength?


I have a set of PROPER rear bumpstops in the mail to me today. I may actually go beat on the expo a bit one night this week on my jump line and see how it works once they get here!!! YIKES!!! Then maybe I'll even lock the hubs and put it in 4wd to see if it spins and drives too!

You guys seen the video from that police shoot out with that grow house guy in Miami that's going around? Talk about insanely close timing where the dude gets in the car and closes the door just as the cops walk up! They don't even realize he's in the car till he steps out firing. The footage is from the grow house surveillance system. Nice kill shot thru the tree though!

The video is mid way down this page... There's two different angles. The 2nd angle shows how insanely close the timing was!

Gotta love how long it takes for backup to arrive. The 2nd view switchs like halfway thru it.

What are the cross streets where you live Andy?

The NW is a lil cheaper then the SW and I wouldnt mind living in either side. Just not fond of the east side as ive never lived there.

I rented a decent place when I first moved here right by Raptor off Sunset and Ft Apache for $1,000mo 1800sqft, Then we moved to Mountains Edge 1800sqft for $1225mo.....I really loved the SW, but we a had a family member who owned a house in Henderson sell to us for dirt cheap so we went for it. I like where we are at, but the SW is cool!........well maybe until the water park opens up

Speaking of welds, the ones on the spring plates looked good. You can even ask Andy I remarked to him 'dang these welds look pretty nice' while I was under the truck haha

You can hang them on the wall for art if you want? I was just price shopping welders. The one I'd LOVE is $2000... Realistically though, the ones that would do fine for me are $800-1100. That's just direct off miller's webpage. I can probably find them cheaper on line and I can possibly even get a smoking deal thru my local shop with a contact I have. Need to put out the feelers cause I'm really tempted to get mine going again, clean it up and toss it on craigslist for $400 firm! Get rid of it and step up to a shiny nice new one!

Two biggest cross streets are Buffalo & Farm. Anywhere around the 95 & Durango area is pretty nice.

Yes he did. I claimed they were my welds for a moment but I came clean.

Grand I would recommend finding a real estate agent. I would have you rent our condo but I just had someone move in. CL for housing blows. Zillow is ok I've never used the other raptor suggested.

I found mine on CL but I would highly suggest a real estate agent as well.

A condo wouldnt be too bad to live in also. Ive just never really looked at them as I like having a garage/big driveway.

If the new people leave anytime soon ksturgio let me know. Might be willing to look at it for sure.

What real estate agents do you guys recommend?
