Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

37" x 13.5" Toyos on a 4th gen leaf sprung truck. For the most part it made it over a lot of obstacles on aggressive blue trails, without even touching in some cases. However, I found out that the rear tires rubbed severely on the front of the rear fender well. This was typically on uphill runs wher...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Thuren Trackbar. Well, I will probably get a lot of I-told-you-sos on here, but I prefer to be transparent for educational purposes. Now it won't be for what the concerns were about suspension collisions. I had none of that as far as I know. What I did have was a failure at the heim threads. Luckily...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

Regarding the Abel Components Locker Bypass. It was flawless. Everything turned on and off immediately. Now I have to think about his swaybar disconnect bypass. There were several occasions I ran in 4WD in order to keep the swaybar disconnected where I would have preferred to be in 2WD to cut down o...

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

So, a little feedback from real world testing at Rausch Creek last weekend. The Uniden CMX 760 Bearcat with Firestik combination worked really well. Everybody came in really clear and as I understand it my transmissions went out clear. My wiring was 18' Firering, Firestick offset pocket mount, Fires...

Re: Route 12 South

Frisco is another favorite spot of mine. I've stayed there a few times. Usually get a house on the sound side and drive out on the beach near Billy Mitchell Airport. Frisco Rod & Gun is a great shop, too. Sent from my Moto Z (2) using Tapatalk We used to camp three or four times a year at Frisco wo...

Re: Route 12 South

My brother rents a house on the beach up past Corolla. The only way to get to the house, is to drive on the beach. https://youtu.be/9QWM-GXKVbc I stayed there a few yrs back, in the Carova area, almost at the VA border. It is a beautiful and fun place to stay. We would have horses under and around ...

Re: Route 12 South

Don't go out of your way guys. Ocracoke is kind of remote. Just come out if your interested. However, it is easily THE most beautiful beach on the east coast. Been coming here since I was 15 yrs old. I highly recommend it.

Route 12 South

Any of you mofos in the lower Outer Banks, meaning near Ocracoke during the week of 8/9? If you are, I will certainly be there that week on the beach often. Feel free to reach out to me if you want to meet up.

Re: SimonandSimonBeast Build

This was a wiring weekend. Installed a Uniden CB radio. Finally got the ARB switch wired into the cab. I had it temporarily wired up under the hood. Nestled it in right next to the CB. Also installed the Abel Components locker bypass. They lock immediately regardless of what drive I'm in. https://up...

Re: Rausch Creek 2020 10 Year Anniversary

Besides the cost, just dealing with insurance companies and body shop is a pita. Coincidentally, I am finally getting an "umpire" mtg today to deal with roofing damages that happened during an unprecedented wind storm we got....a year ago! F'n State Farm.
