"Yeah I done the SoCal drive a few times with the tires and they've been great.  I can't answer for the Dick Cepeks but the destinations have held up very well so far. And as far as mileage, I can range from 14 to 18 mpg depending on…"

"Rob, I'm running firestone destination MT's at 285/75/17 and have had them for about 11k miles.  So far they are holding up well and have about 80-85 of tread left.  Granted, I haven't pounded on them too hard and don't…"

rotorhead replied to SJFJ 4x4's discussion CB antenna tuning
"To add, you could also test the coax for shorts as well.  But since you're 102" whip gets good SWR's than that shouldn't be a problem.  "

rotorhead replied to SJFJ 4x4's discussion CB antenna tuning

rotorhead replied to crawlinrollins's discussion Removing sway bar when wheeling????
"Removing the sway bar allows the wheels to move independently, so yes, you'll get more flex, but there are other advantages.   With the sway bar, I could get close to full flex, but the sway bar was binding the two wheels together, so…"

rotorhead replied to crawlinrollins's discussion Removing sway bar when wheeling????
"I've been running without a sway since the last Hollister trip in April.  I'm running ICON all around.  The truck seems to have more flex than before and it stays much more level when flexing than with the sway bar.…"

I’m sending the info for Sat to everyone who’s coming/might come. We’ll be meeting at the Squaw Valley Trading Post (30812 E Kings Canyon Rd, Squaw Valley, CA 93675; it’s a gas station on the left side of the road past the sheriff’s station, post office and library) at 10:00am. We’ll wait there till about 10:15-10:20 before heading up to the park. The entrance fee for the park is $20. We should be back to eat at the house (hopefully) between 6 and 7.
Directions: from Fresno take freeway/hwy 180 East into the mountains following the signs. After you go up the 1st mountain the 1st town you’ll come to is Squaw Valley. I’ll be on the ch.31 or you can text/call me at (559) 974-5447. Hope to see you tomorrow, but if you can’t make it, no worries :) -Mindy

Sounds good. If you get some good results you should put up some pics!

Really, it's down? Hang on........ Ok, put coolcruisersoftexas.com into your search engine, if you use google the cool cruiser web site will be one of the 1st several sites to pick from. I literally just checked and got the site open, no problem. Hope this helps...

Yeah, it's cool cruisers.com and just go to the list on the left on the home screen. It'll be under "soft parts/ emblems" . There are a couple of options for sale. I actually was thinking I'd drill the rear door of my truck so I bought the one with the mounting posts... Then I chickened out and cut the posts off with my dremmel. If you don't want to drill your sheet metal, there is an option with just a flat back. Then just head down to Kragen or wherever to get some 3M automotive adhesive tape (double sided) to stick it on your door. It's the same stuff the dealers use. Be sure to clean your door really well 1st. I was going to get the original "TOYOTA" emblem, but it's curved and I don't wanna break the enamel by straightening it out. We'll see...

You bet Joel, lemme know if you need some assistance on any mods to your rig. I'd be happy to help out (watch and drink beer)!
At 10:24pm on May 15, 2010, Meestar Jim said…
Hey Joel, so it looks like Monday is going to be my best day to meet up. I can leave Modesto around 5:30 p.m. and be at Best Buy in Tracy 6:30 (ish). If this sounds good, I'll see you then just give me a call on my cell (209)380-4737 when you get there and I'll be in a sandstorm FJ with the trim all blacked out.

See you,
Jim

Busy on sat a.m. Let's look at a late afternoon next week. I'll check with the wife and see what day world best. Then let you know.
At 7:16am on May 14, 2010, Meestar Jim said…
Ok, so I'll be away from the computer for a while just call my cell and we'll work this out. I'll toss the grill in the back so I can head out when I hear from you.
Thanks, Jim
