  1. I have a Chevy 4.3l in my old car and it worked well, always ran perfect, made good power, easy to maintain and parts were always easy to get from auto stores. 091 did really well handling the power.
  2. if you wanna convert swing axle to irs and you have a torsion tube, then you wanna get the IRS jig about $100 (so say you dont need, but makes life easy and they include a magazine article from Hot VW to show you pics and instrucitons on what you need to do and their recommendations) and IRS conversion pivots about $60 from pacific customs.com, it will cost you about $160 bucks and a weekend, but easy for even a novice fabricator to accomplish. I would know we just did my dad's and it worked out great.
  3. Looks like i ended up missing a great trip. Sucks to get all loaded up and then make it only a block away from the house. Pics to follow of my dad's first trip out with his newer trailer. trailer steps Vs. block wall.... The battle was over in less then a minute, block wall being the winner. Then the smell of propane fills the air due to the barbaque line next to the stairs being ripped open. Yeah i was so happy. :kissass:
  4. All this talk of little kids trick or treating, what about the big kids? I wanna be safe and trick or treat as well! I like Beer and Candy and other drinks. Hahahahaha Yes Halloween is for the kid in everyone is my thought. Hope to see a lot of people dressed up.
  5. Congrats on the new to you hauler, but as stated before 1/2ton truck and trailer longer then about 25foot is asking for trouble. (rear end, trans, motor) something in that order maybe the first two switched. Nice hauler though
  6. So Dumont will be open for Halloween? I heard about the closure for testing as well.
  7. So is anyone heading out for Halloween? I am not looking for a place to bunk, we have our own haulers, just a circle to hang with for the weekend.
  8. Does it come in desert camo? If so i will take 2.... Haha :freakin_nuts:
  9. Hey guys I know its early, but i hate being rushed for a trip as Dumont is a little drive for me. The usual friends and family i go with are not wanting to do a Halloween trip, i however am looking into one. If you got room in a circle i would like to join for the weekend. Maybe 1 trailer and truck for sure, maybe a 2 trailer if my buddy goes. Thanks guys.
  10. I had a similar issue and it was a loose ground wire. Check the wires that connect to the battery for rust/corosion, then check the connections to the generator for the same. That is were my issue was when my onan wouldnt start. Mine wasnt doing anything when pushing the switch to start it. If you push and nothing then i would check the wires to and from the generator.

  12. I too am towing with a 1/2 ton. '02 chevy 2wd with air bags (huge difference in bounce on the highway); fully loaded i have a quad and fire wood in the back of the truck and a sand rail or 2 quads and 2 dirt bikes in the trailer. Trailer is a '07 Ragen FB2100 wide body, fully loaded with 30gal of fuel and 150gal of water it does 55mph down the highway just fine. Steep hills like the grapevine/cahon pass it will do 45mph with no issues. Just realize you wont do 55mph all the time and you will make it to and from the dunes without any issues. Oh yeah and I have 285-75-16 tires with 4 inch lift, and power programmer (shift point adjustment and tire correction makes a huge towing difference)
  13. Vary nice, i got an 08 525 model and love it so far. Haven't made it to the sand with it as of yet, but I am as giddy as a virgin on prom nite! haha
  14. Well i have only been duning since i can remember. So, far i beat a TRX450 with pipe and YFZ450 with motor mods and pipe. Ill keep you guys posted on the outcome once i get a Raptor 700 race in.
  15. Hey guys just got an 08 KTM 525 and wanted to see if anyone had input on how it would stack up to others in its class. Im thinking its with the big quads like Raptor 700 and Banshee and KFX 700. ANy input would be great.
