usually the other way around but both should be same quality. you check parts geek and amazon too?

if yours is the same as by bonny there is some threaded connectors you can see on the front of the tank, you might get lucky if you hit those with some wd40 a week in advance. a small chance

hey art, no need to drop the tank on this job. trunk port!

and you also dont need a new pump! fix ur gauge for $40.00!

ive had the night rider gauge the entire time ive owned my car, and its ran fine the whole 100k ive had it. i just go by the "fuel used" option on the DIC

here are a couple videos to help you out!

That guy in the video is one of the original PBC ( First incarnation of this forum) members. "Hans" got beat down by Wren one time to many and bailed. One of his last threads was him taking a picture (ground level) (drunk) in the middle of the road in some hick town in Idaho...You can't make this stuff up.

Picked up a set of tires at work the other day. $33 each. Seem like pretty good tread on them. They're the cheap Walmart brand, but they don't look too bad, and they seem to wear pretty evenly, judging by customers' cars.

all the walmart tires i and people i know tried started making a ton of noise and vibration half way to the rated warranty, and being as picky as i am that wont fly.




this is what i have been working on. i was thinking about painting my firebird but last year i got the club tractor stuck (super heavy turd with one wheel peel) and one of these rhinos was able to pull it up a ditch. i had to have one. so i sold the wifes prairie that never gets used and got this one. it needs some love but i got it for half what they go for in good shape around here. got some ITP mega mayhem tires coming for it later today and going to have them mounted friday. then have to fix up somethings to bring it up to my mechanical standards. should be fun to cruise around in, and get wood. its kinda like a cj5 with way comfy suspension and a dump bed

Nice machine. I have been looking for something like that. I have a lot of lumber and a lot of dirt to move this spring.

Every machine or quad around here seems to fetch 5 to 6 grand with a ton of miles.

I just spent some money ordering some new parts for my GTP. Once they get here I got some work to do.

thats the way it is here start around 6 and thats a beat but running one and go up into 8-9 grand for used ones that are perfect. i got this 06 for 2900 plus 700 for shipping. not counting the tires(would have to replace those regardless) i dont think it will cost me more than a few hundred to fix. even if its a thousand i am still good on value vs local stuff

That'* not too bad. I have been looking at a quad/4wheel as a cheap alternative, but I want 750CC plus so I can tow a trailing. I have a couple of small dumb trailers already for quads, just nothing to pull them.

A good quad might only set me back 4k.
