    Looking for/Wanted Stock SxS seat belts

    Hey Pat, I got a set. Still figuring out which day I'll be going within the next month or so.

    Another Newbie SXS Question!!

    I appreciate the tips! I will definitely let you know if I come up with more questions, I know I will! I like your emphasis on rolling........that's my greatest fear! Don't wanna risk anyone getting hurt, or ruining the car!

    Good Radiator advise needed.

    I've had the same issue with aftermarket radiators on my truck. Make sure the rubber mounts on the top and bottom of the radiator are still good and soft (to absorb vibration). Even then, aftermarket radiators may only last that long. A full aluminum construction unit would be your strongest. However if you have to stick with stock replacement, KOYO does pretty well for trucks.

    F-250 Stolen in Henderson, NV

    Sorry to hear! I had my 06 F250 Powerstroke stolen a couple of months ago and was recovered a few days later in a mess. It's amazing how extremely easy these are to steal! Hindsight, alarms, kill switch, steering wheel club, etc...for the future!

    RV Antennas

    Direct tv Dish on a portable tripod buried with rocks and sand. Works great!
  6. I've camped by bathroom 3 many times and never got even ok reception... but then again it was always during busy weekends where other rigs are in the way.
  7. Coming from quads and jeeps, now on to a 2016 RZR1000 xp4. I've gone all over the dunes, up and down, unstoppable on my YFZ450 quad. Just not sure how to take these in a SXS?? Basic newbie questions: 1. How well do they handle with stock tires in the dunes? I've read to keep them at 12 psi, but others tell me 20 psi? 2. What's the best way to maneuver through the dunes, big bowls, etc... with this setup? 3. How to not get stuck in a bad spot? 4. How to keep from rolling over (or breaking something) during transitions, surprise drop offs, witch eyes, and blind whoops while on the gas??? 5. Are paddle tires really worth it, and if so, will only paddles in the rear be OK, and stock tires in the front? Thanks DDR community, I know a lot of you guys run these SXS! I

    Current cell reception in Dumont

    Just to confirm, Bathroom 9 area has the best reception??? Or are there any other good recommendations since I will have to be working remotely for a bit this Thanksgiving out there???

    Directv

    I use mine out there every year. I use a tripod and just level it with the built in bubble sight glass; from there, bury the legs so the wind doesn't take it down. Set the receiver to the visible and audible strength meter and turn up the volume on your TV. Slowly begin to rotate the dish pointing south-west, and there you go! You'll here and see the strength meter begin to pulse rapidly once you start going over 80% signal strength. Enjoy KickOff! I'll be right out there watching too!

    Where to get water in Baker?

    I always fill up in baker. Don't like hauling anymore extra load than needed as well. You can get water at Valero, it seems like everywhere else in town minds if you do. Only thing is the water is at the dump station.

    Current cell reception in Dumont

    Some used to say parking on the bluffs by the entrance will give great 4g reception?

    Current cell reception in Dumont

    Are you speaking of only 3g or 4g?
  14. Anyone know if att has stepped up their service there? I just looked at their coverage maps and they claim 4glte in dumont. And Verizon only claims 3g in the camp areas, 4glte everywhere else. If I remember correctly it was only Verizon there with spotty service. My wife and I have both providers so looking to see which would work best and if a cell booster would work for one of them (if needed)?
  15. Ok cool, we'll be out there!
