i was thinking only 32's.
i'm afraid i won't be able to move her in high range- she has trouble obtaining/maintaining highway type speeds as it is.
we'll see what happens after this season.

i see new location on your signature thinggy- have you completed the move?

i found a seat.
it doesn't fit.
[Linked Image]
the hump was in the way.

it came out of a bmw m3.
it doesn't have the heater.


adonblabla:
i think the seat will do. i have to rearrange a few things that i had to move to get it in(petite little suzi).
i'm moving battery #2 to the passenger side, shifting the ice box location, and adding stowage area on the pass.side for the stuff that don't fit now.
i carry too much.

moreblather:
partially completed some stowage adjustments and planning a run w/my brother and miss bitchy to the e f carson this weekend.
he's bringing the telescope this time- looking for the super nova.

suzi the psychic took me to the river and back(once again) with no problems.
my brother(riding miss bitchy) and i spent one night at highland lakes, then 3 nights on the river. came out monday.
the seat will do fine(i will modify the mounting some). i should have done this years ago.
the stowage changes seem positive and i had less stuff flying around than usual.
the slightly wider track feels good.
did some rock scrabble and appreciate the low range crawl capability.
i will have to reconsider larger tires 'till i figure out some clearance issues.
i'll look thru my photos- see if there is anything worth posting.

some nice trail

ANYTHING is worth posting, Richard. It'll keep us grounded folks thinking of what we're missing. I'm envious of you for having an operational rig that takes you out time and time, again. Congrats on the good run!

hey jon.
i added a couple of pics.
i'm not much good with the camera(i forget to focus, can't see thru the viewfinder, and probably shake too much), but at least i'm not wasting film.
suzi has been being very good to me. highway travel is what concerns me most- poor girl really struggles to turn wheels in high range. i have to use 1st gear on some parts of hwy4, and try not to impede traffic everywhere else.
i used to be able to use my low range 2WD going over ebbetts pass, but now in low range she screams out in 5th gear at about 15mph.
are your engine repairs progressing? still some time left before the wet stuff......

i made the modifications to the seat mount.
it's a real close fit.
it helped make the last run real comfortable.
