    Talk about aiming light where you need it! How'd you situate the mount - need more pics!

    95* and in a huge, empty parking lot. Is it too hot for a chalk test to determine proper inflation?

    Must be 200 yds across the lot. Straight shot. Using chalk sold for sidewalk art, I mark a heavy band across the treads of all four tires. I roll to the other side and back up. When I get back to where I started, I can't find chalk, at all, on any tire. Looking at the pavement, I see chalk marks. Perfect tread chalk marks like I used a printing press to stamp them down. So, I chalk up the tires again, and this time I mark the sidewalls, so I know where. This time I only go halfway across the lot and backup. And, same thing again; no chalk on the treads, just the sidewalls. Again, but this time only a quarter way. Still, no chalk left on the treads. So, once more, but this time I only roll maybe 100 feet and I don't back up. Hoooray, chalk on the treads! The chalk looks worn evenly on all four treads; maybe just ever so slightly more worn in the middle than the shoulders. Did I nail it? Are my new tires, inflated by guesswork without any adjustment, at the proper PSI?

    I never nail anything the first time. Well, except golf. First time I played my ball rolled right through the windmill blades; hole in one!

    I purchased similar. Same brand. I probably don't really need it, but I cut up a silicone water bottle boot for the positive terminal.

    Shortly after those pictures my OEM battery died. Got a Costco replacement. These clamps fit the posts on the replacement battery a whole lot better than the factory one.

    I get to hack up my center console panel soon since I have to move my SG3 over and install the 6 switch panel.

    @Bergy24 - these are the ones I purchased: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08CGCWY72?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details

    Edit: I see 1lowlife posted above. His pic is what I saw somewhere that made me want to buy them :)

    Edit 2: Info only - you will have to bend the tabs up and/or cut the tabs off of one of the large power wire connectors and the large ground strap connector.

    Advise requested:

    Do you really need to spend $700 and up on upper control arms?

    These $299 ones look decent enough Id think? I mean Im not trying to go rock climbing.....

    Buy once, cry once. That being said, RC does make better stuff these days - I just don't know anyone who has experience with these uppers. Then again, I don't know anyone who has Fabtech uppers but I love mine.

    That mic cord would drive me crazy! Especially when it swings around when you're offroad.

    Nothing major at all, but I threw in a roof weather strip that disappeared one day without notice...sure looks fancy and new compared to the original on the other side! I'm letting some adhesive cure before I remove the tape...

    Used the factory bumper bolts to mount to like I had before. These have much more cut off compared to the ss3 pros. Also removed the ditch lights.

    You know.. I’ve watched a few documentaries about the consequences of sand on wind turbine blades. Cant imagine what it’d do to the silicon jacket on that wire when you’re bombing around the dunes :boink:

    Sat in it and read through some threads on the 3rd gen side. Saw a bunch of 2nd gen guys roasting them pretty good. The knife is definitely being twisted hard over there

    Then for the first time in quite a while (ever?) I actually thought about what I'd do if my engine died. Tough sledding over there for some of those guys.
