So, I've said it a bunch of times how street cars and going fast just has no appeal to me. 2:50 up is the type of stuff I was exposed to growing up and is basically why going fast on the street just seems boring to me, it's missing the other elements of going fast which are the bumps. Just posting this cause I saw it and it's a great example. This is the type of "go fast" and drag racing I grew up watching and attending.

Also, I mentioned Pismo is cool but has nothing on Glamis... Dunes the size of what's in that video don't exist in Pismo. You can drive the entire dune area of pismo in your jeep in an hour at the max, it's a small area with small dunes. Awesome to go camp and chill on the beach but if you're going to really dune, Glamis is the place to go.

seen that one for sale i believe. Consensus is that it looks to be a later wag retitled as a 68 to be smog exempt. Besides, who wants one with a chevy under the hood! Hogwash!

Hey powr, what should it cost me to fill (exchange) that lil' CO2 tank for my kegerator?

Okay, so random question... Those of you with tinted windows and windshield film. Do you?

  • leave all your windows rolled up all day
  • leave all your windows rolled up all day and use a windshield screen deal to block the sun
  • leave your windows cracked all day
  • leave your windows cracked all day and use a windshield screen deal to block the sun




Just curious...

I don't have the windsheild film yet but I crack my windows. If I had the film, I would test leaving the windows up and leaving them cracked to see which I liked better.

At the rate your going with the jeep selling motivation you never will... I've got my yota on the RDC classifieds, DR, 2 different offroad classifieds page on FB, a prerunner club FB page, it's mentioned everywhere I'm active online, it's listed on some toyota offroad forums as well. I want this other truck so I'm actually making an effort to do something about it. Today I'll be tearing the front end off the toyota and stripping it down to replace the bushings. Hoping I can have it fully stripped down tonight and I can take inventory on what I need bushings wise. If I can get that knocked out this week during the evenings I'll be able to start tearing it down for paint over the weekend. Get the chassis and cage painted ASAP along with all stickers stripped and paint some of the interior as well.

I'm going to plasti dip the whole truck once all that's done. I'm going with this color cause it should cover the best meaning it'll take less material to do it. I figure at that point it should look pretty damn nice for any potential buyer to help with the sale. If it doesn't sell, oh well, it'll at least look good for the first and only time in it's life. LOL I figure the $500 or so worth of materials will be worth it in the long run for the sales price.





SOMEONE BUY ME!!!

In the magnum i use a windshield screen, and crack my windows.

Cracking windows can lower the temps inside by a good 20* simply by allowing ventilation. If they are just cracked they wont allow much if any light in, but will allow the hot air to escape.

I never had film on the windshield, but in my experience one of the big issues of a car being hot is because the sun heats the plastic dash and whatnot, and the dash radiates heat for a long time even after the AC is pumping, so you arent just trying to cool the AIR inside the vehicle, you have to cool the heated materials too.

Sun shade keeps a TON of heat off of the dash and seats and whatnot.
