HAHA, well it is a toy frog, it's gonna look great floating around in my guest bath!



And on another completely different topic... I got my favor approved by my old employer to build me a couple easy brackets I need for my exploder!!! Hopefully in the next few weeks my friggen u-bolts won't be hanging down asking to get bent acting as anchors like they did this weekend! LOL Look at those things!!! Just asking to rip stuff out of the ground!!! Should be basically smooth underneath the leafs with what I'm planning to do.



I was going to get all crazy and try building a system to flip them over so they actually wrap around the leaf springs and point upwards with the nutz at the top but that just seems too complicated and like too much work when I can just build new lower u-bolt plates that are the same design we use on the race truck and be good to go... Only money outta pocket will be 4 new shorter u-bolts and I'll have make a couple minor pieces by hand as gussets for strength.

Hard to see but if you can make out the passenger side u-bolt plate you'll get an idea of what I'm thinking... Notice it's flat underneath the leafs!!! Flat and sexay!

Khris, how far from LA is that swap meet? My wife is dragging me to some baptist that weekend. I could probably bail on that and join if its not too far from where we will be. The party is in riverside. I don't know SoCal very well.

LA and riverside are definitely 2 different areas and could be the difference of 2 hours depending what part of riverside you're in vs. what part of LA you could possibly be in.

From riverside though, depending what part your at, probably 45min-90min at the most I'd be willing to guess. "Riverside" and "LA" are pretty vague and could cover a very large area so...

You should be able to mapquest "Mornogo" or "Cabazon" as the city from where ever you're going to be to get a rough idea. It's literally right off the I10 on a frontage road that you can see from the highway.

It's a little ways away from LA from what I remember. Like closer to Temecula.

Outside the US, the Ford Ranger is still in production. Rumor is Ford will be campaigning this in the 2014 Dakar Rally. It is supposedly powered by a race prepped 5 liter and will have water cooled Brembo brakes.

It's quite a bit northeast of temecula. Closest bigger named city would be Palm Springs. It's right here and normally fills the entire parking lot with sellers including the very top lot with the single semi parked in it in this image.

only good song they had was little blue dune buggy and that's only cause it was about an offroad vehicle. Just for you marn, I'll be well beyond comprehension at this event. In fact, I may need to get rufus' number myself!
