RE: The price of wanting a "stick"

We’ve been jeep wrangler shopping for the last few weeks. It’s amazing how hard it is to find a manual tranny on the lot; even in a Rubicon. I think they are all out here in the NW. Must be. We went by the jeep dealers in two towns last Sunday. They must have had 30 Wranglers and only 1 or 2 manuals. I guess that is what people want. I only like manual trannys when I have to drive a lot in stop and go city traffic. Just about any other situation; I would rather have a stick.

RE: The price of wanting a "stick"

We’ve been jeep wrangler shopping for the last few weeks. It’s amazing how hard it is to find a manual tranny on the lot; even in a Rubicon. I wouldn’t have an auto tranny jeep, but I guess that is what most new jeep buyers want. I guess that is why 90% of them never feel a rock or mud under their tires. With no clutch and no dimmer switch, what do you do with your left leg? Tappin’ your foot to the latest Lady Gaga tune as you crawl around the mall parking lot I bet. :) ;) Brad

RE: The price of wanting a "stick"

I don't see anyone here saying that an automatic is not up to the task, just that they don't want one. That's it. EVERY auto trany I've owned has ended up in the shop prematurely. I don't need an auto because I mainly drive on the highway/interstate. I don't want the reduced fuel mileage of an auto. I don't want to pay for an auto. I don't want to maintain an auto. I don't want the complexity of an auto. I don't want a tranny with a 100,000 mile design life. I don't a tranny shifting were some pointy-headed EPA computer jockey programed it to shift. Brad

My 2¢ worth. Real trucks don't shift themselves. exactly right.:B I hate auto trannys in trucks. My next new truck will be a Dodge after owning nothing but Fords for decades. Auto Trannys Suck

RE: Grand Mesa CO - Trip Report

Thanks for posting. We went to Grand Mesa many years ago. I think we fished one of the Cottonwood lakes, but did better in a small lake called Silver Lake. Most of our fish came on Rooster Tails. Grand Mesa is a cool place and we plan on going back there one day. BradW

RE: Colorado Camping in August 2014

Cool photos. Some of the first real Rocky Mtn trout fishing I ever did was in Monarch Lake back in the 70s. Actually saw a snake up there by the lake; didn't know they were that high up. I think its called a Rocky Mtn Garner Snake. They are harmless and it was moving real slow. :)

I describe it as Slipknot meets Hello Kitty. That's funny. Others have called it "Viciously kawaii (Japanese for cute) and satanically precious". LA Times BradW

RE: Identity of this Los Angeles Area Restaurant???

1492, Hey, thanks for the help. I knew if I kept taunting you folks, someone from that area would come up with the answer. That must be it. They played at the Fonda Theatre (aka Music Box) which is about one mile west on Hollywood Blvd (just across Vine). I didn’t know there really were Mel’s Drive-Ins. I thought they were just part of the movie. I guess they are like Forest Gump Seafood Restaurants. Thanks again for the help! I will be sending you a one-day free pass to Bishops Castle near Rye, Colorado for your help. If you can’t find it, Shavano can give you directions. I hear that he is real tight with the owner. I know you forum moderators are already heavily overpaid for the very few hours you put in, but you tell Admin to put a little extra in your envelope this month for helping me find the dinning location of BABYMETAL and crew. Wouldn’t hurt to put a little something in Wayne’s envelope too; he is doing a great job. BradW

RE: Identity of this Los Angeles Area Restaurant???

Just eyeballing the clientele in this photo leads me to believe this restaurant doesn't attract much of an RV crowd..... I have no idea what you mean by that and me thinks I don't want to know. Come on! All the Southern Cal folks who read this forum and not one of you have ever been in that restaurant? I bet if I posted a photo of Northwoods over on Rosemead someone could name it. I need some help here. :) :) Brad

RE: Identity of this Los Angeles Area Restaurant???

Yep. Metal fan since 1970; BABYMETAL fan since March. Metal had become so stagnant, predictable and boring. This is just what it needed; something different. And something different it is. :) :) BABYMETAL - Paris Live July 2014

RE: Identity of this Los Angeles Area Restaurant???

Dang, I can't believe y'all have not come through on this. Surely someone has been in this LA area restaurant? Its pretty destintive with the old photos on the wall. Kinda reminds me of Rosie's in Pasadena, but they closed down a few years back. The photo was taken Saturday, maybe near Hollywood. I NEED HELP. Brad

RE: Silverton 4th

I like the San Juans. Lots of cool mtn 4x4 roads, animals, historic mining operations and great scenery. I would luv to spend the whole summer there. The only thing its missing is great fishing; or at least I ain't found it yet. Brad

RE: ARB Locker in front axle

I would not put and ARB in the front without also having one in the rear. You know I love you Brad, that said, I disagree. If you buy a single ARB locker for the front, just wire the switch to the air solenoid, and you have a front locker regardless if you have a limited slip, spool, Lockright, etc... Several of my former Jeep buddies have a spool or Lockright in the rear, and an ARB in the front. And for a factory truck with a limited slip, the same thing can easily be done. But I still think the OP should also get a winch.... I love you too man. :) :) I'm not saying it can't be done. I'm just saying ARB goes to a lot of trouble building the wiring harness to prevent someone from locking the front without locking the back first. At least that was the case on my short wheelbase TJ. On a long wheel base truck, it may not be an issue. It's just something to consider. I have twin-stick Atlas on my Jeep, so I can lock the front ARB and totally disconect the rear drive. I ocasionaly do that in the woods to drag the front end around. Brad

RE: ARB Locker in front axle

According to the ARB website, their RD197 will fit my front axle. I have no desire to put one on the rear. I’ve had ARB lockers on our Jeep for many years and they are GREAT offroad. One thing you may not be aware of is the ARB wiring harness that comes with front and rear ARB lockers (for my TJ anyway) actually prevents you from engaging the front locker unless the rear is all ready engaged. You can engage the rear or the front & rear, but not just the front. As I recall, the instructions which came with the lockers said this was to prevent loss of control of the vehicle and killing yourself and half the people in the county. So, based on that, I would not put and ARB in the front without also having one in the rear. Brad
