Re: Insurance?!

Howdy, I was speaking to my ins. agent a few weeks ago (she's a broker so has access to multiple ins. companies) and she told me that I was basically stuck with the company that I have (Progressive) and that I was lucky to have it-having been "grandfathered" into it because I have had it for such a ...

Re: Fat Fabrications hard sides and roof

Howdy, I would be very interested in changing my 710M to some kind of "hard shell" truck. The thought of leaving my truck and all of the "stuff" I carry open to the coyotes and other vermin that roam the countryside makes me cringe. I'm too old to fight 'em and you can't just shoot 'em even if you c...

Asking for general advice.

Howdy, I really didn't know under what subject to put this so I chose this one. I own a 1975 Pinz 710 M Which has been garaged in central Az. The elevation is approx. 4600 feet. The year 'round temperature varies between 0-f in the winter and 105-f in the summer. Due to pre-existing/existing medical...

Re: Tapatalk?

Howdy! I too am an old guy (just shy of 65) and I also have NO idea of what you're talking about. As for phones though, My flip phone knows how to do LOTS of things; it can take pictures, videos, and it can even send and receive text messages! (I can't, but it can.) Someday I hope to buy a camera so...

Re: Cannon Challenger Gun Safe at TSC

Howdy, While I'm sure that your dimensions of your safe are correct, as I said, I purchased mine in the mid-80's. Over the years, I think that the Cannon Safe Co. possibly changed their safe sizes to accomodate customer demand. Having read your reply, I decided to re-measure my safe; however, this t...

Re: Cannon Challenger Gun Safe at TSC

Howdy, I purchased a Cannon Safe at the Great Western Gun Show at the L.A. County Fair grounds in the mid 80's. (Back when L.A. County allowed gun shows) At that time it was manufactured in El Monte, Ca. It doesn't have any mdl.#, just a ser.#. It's 30"w x24"d x67"h. Has a manual combination lock (n...

Re: storage

Howdy, I took the lazy man's way out-I mounted two Blitz gas can carriers in the middle and I now carry four 5 gal Specter type water jugs there. I keep them from bouncing around by using 1" tie down straps running vertically on each jug and a 3" strap running horizontally (inner wall to inner wall)...

Re: Looking for Arizona property, any suggestions???

You might be surprised, the economy is bad and there are LOTS of nice places at GOOD prices there. The job market in that area is pretty soft. A large number of residents are on a fixed income (like myself-retired). I have seen many places on the market for 3-4 years now, nice places with 2-3 and ev...

Re: Looking for Arizona property, any suggestions???

Several years ago I bought 5 acres in Chino Vly. (approx.14 mi. north of Prescott). Elevation is about 4700 ft. This week average high is about 100, in the winter it gets into the low 30s/sometimes the mid-high 20s. Snow is minimal (3-6"). Mostly rolling grass land with some scrub oak. Some areas ne...

Re: Side Rail Replacement

I too used metal-3"x3/16" angle in an 8 ft. length. I chose the 8' length because it was easier for me to work with (vs.10' length). I cut the leading edge at a 45 degree angle and rounded the rear edge with a hand grinder. As I am not a purist, I 86'ed the nut-serts and had the rails welded on afte...

Re: Lack of traction solutions

You know, everyone who comes to my house wants to ride in the truck. Now, besides having a better riding truck, I have "options"-"I'm sorry but there's only room for four in the back. So sorry."

Lack of traction solutions

I have over 20 years experience with 4x4 P/Us and they all seem to have one thing in common-lack of rear end traction. The Pinz is no different (just a little better than some). This is how I attacked the problem, first by item removal then by the addition of other items. Removal: 2 wooden bump rail...

EI Hardtop

I have been giving alot of thought about buying a fiberglass hardtop from Expedition Inports for the front cab of my 710M. I was wondering if anyone has any experience (good or bad) with this item. I plan to permanently mount it. I cannot see any re-enforcement supports for the main mass of the stru...

Howdy to all. First of all I would like to apologize in advance because I'm sure this is a redundant subject; but, as I'm looking to a large expenditure, I hope you all will bear with me on this subject. I'm looking to purchase six tires for my truck and am in a quandry as which brand to buy (there ...
