Ummmm... Wow! If this piece of **** legislation is passed and somehow spreads, I think each and every one of you are dangerous! Warrants far all the people!

Garza, if John has any seriousness about buying a truck he should REALLY go look at this!!!

http://www.race-dezert.com/classifie...tails&id=74796

That truck has so much history in the offroad race world!!! I'm honestly kicking myself for having the truck in my garage that I do rather then just going and buying that thing! Put it this way, Frank Vessels and Robby Gordon won a few races in that truck back in the day! And yes, it's old but I bet it's still a monster!






Edit... Nevermind... Looked into it a bit more cause I was having crazy thoughts and have heard it's a basket case these days unfortunately.

I came across these today and figured I would share. My lesson in just because it's within the weight limit doesn't mean you should tow it. 26 ft ultralight we were towing with a V8 explorer. Camper blew a tire and the rest is history.

Dang. How long ago was that? Looks like a case of the tail wagging the dog.

May 20th of 2006. I'll never forget because it was the day before Thomas's 2nd birthday. May I add the stupid $300 car seat she had to have and I *****ed about ended up being a good investment.

We had everything set up right to, good break controller, weight distribution hitch, and a high end sway control setup. I had over $1000 in just the hitch and sway control. There where heavy winds that day and it was like driving with a giant sail. The blown tire sealed the deal. Every time you hit the breaks the swaying would get worse due to the uneven breaking.

Another lesson learned in this event, always wear your seatbelt. The last thing you ever want to experience is rolling a vehicle and having your significant other be gone when it stops rolling. Fortunately she landed in mud and only had a cracked rib. The worse injury was a cut tendon in my leg so we got off easy.

Drove by the wreck on autoshow leaving work. There was a newer grand cherokee on a flatbed that looked like it had simply rear ended something. There was so many emergency vehicles that it was hard to see any detail but the semi looked as if it had almost gone over the guard rail and over the embankment. Was hard to tell but there could've been a vehicle between the semi and the guard rail... There wasn't much left of anything that's for sure.

I just watched the news and it looks like the red GC was just another vehicle involved and that another vehicle was crushed under the semi hauling gravel.

It was a van that got crushed under the truck, both driver and passenger have now died as a result. The guy who was in the GC is home now and doing fine (according to a friend who knows him).

Those gravel trucks make me nervous. We live by the big pit on spring mountain so we see them all the time. When they have the two trailers in tandem they look really shady.

Turns out the guy in the van was a good friend of one of My best friends. There was another person in the van too that was killed. The semi just blew a red light full speed I guess.
