  1. The ghost remains the same IFS, but I did finally buy a Ford and install a straight axle.
  2. I wanted George to know I finally took his advice and removed the IFS to install a straight axle.
  3. Ok, I finally did something I've been threatening for a long time now; I took one of my 120volt 100watt 9000lumen garage lights and plugged it in to the inverter on the ghost. The lights are designed to light up billboards and have really really sharp edged light cutoff. They did not reach too far, a bit shorter than my standard high beams and you couldn't really tell where they stopped because they just faded out...but they were daylight out to that point. No pattern, no flare, no glare...just daylight. No flood pattern...just light 140 degrees to the side [and an unbelievably sharp cutoff] and top and bottom with absolutely NO pattern or hotspots. I could put it in one of those cheap little pepboys housings pretty easily. Just an experiment that worked. 9000lumens in truck lights seem to run about $900.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/100W-Watt-Outdoor-LED-Cool-White-Flood-lights-Lamp-High-Power-Spotlights-IP65-/121427941014?pt=US_Lighting_Parts_and_Accessories&hash=item1c45ab5696
  4. MadDog is here and we're loaded up. Leaving early...diddling around on the way...hope to hit the camp at noon.
  5. We're not bringing the ghost so we'll bring one of the Avalanches and hang around in camp while you are all at the cinders.
  6. I was in the area the week before thanksgiving. WORST GRADING JOB EVER! I have never seen such a mess. Some of the new road is as wide as an airstrip, and sucks all across the 75' of grading. I'll check with the locals to see who's running the mine.
  7. The OP is a bit reactionary in his repost of propagandist stuffs instead of posting his OWN opinion and being his first post I'm sure it is both political and uneducated. I'm sure his knowledge of the situation goes no farther than the simple words he reposted. When the 'shutdowns' happened in my county I got a call from the local paper as I was the only person [apparently in the entire county] that supported the shut downs. From what I have read, they shut down some stuff quad riders had cut across from road to road for no reason [just as I had understood], and then OPENED ABOUT 300 MILES OF PREVIOUSLY CLOSED ROADS. Just something I read, no confirmation. As an aside; We recently went to the old railroad tunnel behind Ashfork AZ. We were within 3 miles and a sign, that looks like official brown stake standard BLM sign, stands in the middle of the trail saying no vehicles, yadda yadda. We walk in the last three miles, find a very minor washout and nothing else to deem such a stake/sign. Upon reporting our trip to a retired BLM friend of a friend type that was in-charge of such things, we find out that tree- huggers often plant those signs much like green-pieces block whaling ships. Just a heads up about doing a bit of research and formulating an opinion of your own as to why and how and when. I'm sure the poster above me can shed some light on what really happened in Mohave County and if indeed, the meeting resulted in a BUNCH of trails opening...as reported in our local newspaper.
  8. Went in mud this weekend. Got caught in a 2.5" in fifteen minutes freak storm. I think the ifs holding my tires flat on the road helped me a lot. I can't 'outdrive' the suspension, speed wise, with my new spring pack. The trucks comfort level is now maybe 20mph over mine.
  9. He has the right tires but if I could stand a full width axle I'd have it in a full width vehicle. Thanks for thinking of me. IRS is next on the list. I just lost my test mule so I'm looking for a two door blazer to do the fitment.
  10. We're going to be with you for a day. We have family coming in so we'll have to back in Williams for the bulk of the weekend.
