Re: Very dangerous winch mount

Even if the base were close to the pin in the way you are talking about, when the pulling angle changes and goes up or down something is going to bend or break. Bad idea in all ways. It can't be stressed enough, this whole system or something similar is very likely hurt someone.

Very dangerous winch mount

Don't mean to pick on this owner, and to each his own and all of that, but this is just really dangerous. I hope he decides to go another route. Andre can build a plate fairly cheap and it's 100 times safer than this. If the pull direction goes slightly off center, in any direction, this thing becom...

Re: Map light. NEW 12 and 24v, LED and halogen.

The three most recent buyers should have them by now. This time of year can be really slow with shipping USPS. I have one left as of today. And I forgot to mention I only had two of the plastic packages pictured above originally so they are shipped padded but without the (very flimsy) plastic. There...

Re: The electric conversion future

Wonder where EVWest is with their electric Pinz conversion? Their old air cooled conversions while crazy expensive are also amazing as they can take an old, slow, smelly vehicle and make it a daily driver again! I would love to see their electric AC solutions as they could be retrofitted into a gas...

Re: The electric conversion future

We have a ton of charging stations popping up around here (including a hydrogen hook-up at one gas station for that new Honda I assume). From Tesla stations beside a Barnes and Nobles, to big malls to Home Depot as well, which are all up and running and some of which are still free for now. Yeah not...

Re: The electric conversion future

Where I live, two homes within sight of me are using solar power all day long with no support from the power company at all. Soon it will be battery supported at night. They will no longer be connected! Who can charge them money then? You need lots of panels to make the energy needed to charge a car...

Re: The electric conversion future

Of course they will tax registration more, add some other annoying technique to make money off drivers, etc.. It's already being talked about in Ca. since there are so many high mpg and electric cars there already. Regardless of how we feel about it, its' coming either way. Old cars with electric mo...

The electric conversion future

I'd like nothing more than to stop giving a good percentage of my money every year to gas stations, although it's very hard for me to imagine off-roading without my diesel rattling on but, in the not too distant future, batteries are what we are looking at. For some people it's an environment thing ...

Re: Are Maxxis MT-762 Bighorns GTG?

People seem to like them a lot. Been around a while too. I wouldn't expect a ton of miles out of them but I'd go for it if you get a good deal.

If it were me I'd change all the gear oils out to Redline or Royal Purple, carry some extra motor oil with me and head out!

Re: Best Book for Amateur Radio Technician license

I started out very young with electronics and radios/Ham and then later took electronics in our regional tech-school, along with normal school classes, but one of the most helpful books during all of that was available at Radio Shack, back when it was cool and full of resources. I'm sure some versio...
