I'd almost sell my whole exploder for that price, it comes with way more storage, has an engine and even has forwards and backwards motion capabilities.

Since everyone has been talking phones...


I currently have Verizon with an older motorolla droid razr maxx. The phone was good in its day but bogs down with today's memory intensive apps. I have the unlimited data/text plan through them as well.

I also have my phone from Germany, a samsung S4 which is fully unlocked. Great speed, decent battery life... but not supported by Verizon. One of you guys with an unlimited plan through AT&T should really adopt me and add a line on your plan. I will pay double just to be able to use my newer phone. I tried the goPhone plan when I was here a few months ago, but the data and service was very lacking. Almost like they don't allow you to use their full network. The wife flies in this weekend and she has a Tmobile sim card for her phone. I might check to see how her service is with that.

I ended up going with sprint and buying the iPhone 6 plus. And so far I love the phone and the service isn't too bad. Nothing beats Verizon in my opinion but I didn't feel like paying 130$ a month for them.

yeah that is one of my problems right now too. While I am on a grandfathered unlimited plan, it is a family plan. It is a great deal when the wife is here, but when it is just me, it is a tad on the expensive side.

I just did a factory reset on my motorolla, so hopefully that will fix some of the lagging and make it a little more bearable.

Yeah same here, I was on a plan with my buddy and his wife and all together it was cheaper for me. But trying to get my own and Verizon does not want people on their plans. They used to have the best prices and service.

I shall call this one "crack patch"

Before



After




and that's not done... There's more to it then what you see there, that's just simply addressing the crack itself which I ground down, welded up and smoothed out before applying said patch. We got the shock mount which was flexing and led to this issue tied into the frame basically last night so that should hopefully put a fix to this happening again down the road. At least I hope!


Oh, and transmission... I saw the guts of it today. Amazing how good of condition it's in. The primary drive 2-3 clutch pack showed some wear but wasn't bad. The other clutch packs, you could still read the part number printed on the fiber discs!!! One of the planetary's also had a brass shim that showed some wear. Going to replace just those parts, slap a new seal kit in it along with a performance shift kit and toss all the guts back in the case and run it. We also are going to set it up as a manual valve body setup too but it'll be all electronically controlled, not a true manual job but it will function just like manual.

Do paddle shifters in the steering wheel!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

I'm not a fan of paddle shifters. Way too much steering motion going on with your hands all over back and forth when actually running hard. My nature is to reach down and bang a shifter when i need it and I think that would be a really hard natural reaction to break. Stick or auto, I reach down there naturally. You need to come out sometime and see what it's like to really ride in one of these hoopties. It's pretty busy in the drivers seat when you're actually running it hard!

I like the gate shifter... We're just going to add some switches inside it. 3rd will be just where you see it as it is now but the OD button is going to go away and when you kick it from the left slide in 3rd to the over to the right, that's going to be OD now instead of the button on the console that's actually not in this picture cause I hadn't mounted it yet. LOL

2wd JK Jeepspeed unlimited with big boy everything playing in the dunes? Why not!!!


LOL, and yes, I thought it was game over at the 2:00ish mark too!!! CRAP!!!

I saw this thing at the Parker Race back in Feb. It's MEAN!!! You jeep guys really should make it to one of the races with a big jeepspeed turn out. I really think you'd leave virtually out of drool to spare. LOL

They couldn't see a newly formed rain wash until it was too late. Hit it at 35-45 mph.
