    '06 GMC Quigly 4x4 3500 cargo van - SOLD

    Update 6/2/17 - It just sold. And I told them the next one they are selling is spoken for. :) First, the confession: There is no link to another site. I do not own this van. Selling cars is not my business. I am posting this for the company next door to my rented shop space. They've...

    '91 80-series TLC, OME Lift, ARB Bumepr, Snorkel... needs engine work

    I just stumbled on this while looking for an ARB bumper for an XJ. http://westslope.craigslist.org/cto/5131161010.html Looks to be a very solid truck that just needs a little engine work. (Head gasket?) Don't have a clue who the seller is, just thought someone might be interested. Chris

    Gearing - Making the XR400 a better "adventure" bike

    Well, I have an XR400 that I'm fairly happy with, but it's a little tiresome running any distance on pavement. I've geared it up to a 16 tooth front sprocket, and that helps quite a bit, but it's still a little buzzy above about 50mph for riding any distance. In an effort to do more road...

    Tire Review: Hercules Terra Trac AT2

    Well, I've been trying to find some used 235/85's to put on a set of 16x6" wheels that I want to run on my Comanche project... The other day I called on a CL ad for "New AT tires" in Denver and found that he was selling 235/85R16 Hercules Terra Trac AT's for $120/tire. These tires get good...

    Product Review: OME Nitrocharger Sport Shocks on TJ

    Well, after years of getting the crap kicked out of me by whatever shocks I put on my jeep back when I built it in 2005, I finally bucked up and ordered some new shocks. I debated Bilstein and OME to great length, and ended up going with OME for two reasons: 1. More travel from the same...

    2001 Pheonix 6.5ft Camper - Longmont, CO

    Found a nice 2001 Phoenix pop-up slide-in camper on CL: http://boulder.craigslist.org/rvs/3672615294.html I looked at it over the weekend, but it's going to be too small for my needs. Overall it's in pretty good condition, and I don't think it's ever been stored outside. No stains on the...

    ARB "Sahara" or "2nd gen" turn signals??

    I bought a new but missing stuff ARB bumper for my GMC, and it didn't come with the bumper turn signals. Of course I found a bunch of info that they're VW MK2 golf lights, so I bought a set of clear ones... Turns out the lights in the newer bumpers, particularly those termed "Sahara" or...
