RE: Bradshaw trail and 2.19 gas

Did you start down at the Salton Sea or at the Colorado River? From your picture at the trestle I can't tell if you are headed West or East? Also, did you spend the night on the trailer or drive straight through? Send us some trip info and more pictures! We started from Niland at the salton sea and ended up near Palo verde We had a group off 17 vehicles in a 4wd group,10 jeeps,4 pickups,2 side by side Kawasakies and a 4x4 lexus.Its an easy 1 day trip.but bad weather slowed us down. I would not take trip alone and not without 4wdhttp://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/E6174EF6-3811-4A52-B975-B33EDC93EB7D_zpstoqrvbq6.jpg height=600 width=400 The big wash north of the tressle Check out the post on Geminid Meteors http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/512D2E56-5935-40A5-B86D-28AE2468161E_zpsg4oudchp.jpg height=600 width=480 The corner of Bradshaw trail and the summit road road that leads to I10 and follows the Iron Mt RR

RE: Geminid meteors Fri and Sat -- head for the boonies!

Gee, Salvo, is that possible? RDWIII was on the Bradshaw Trail, which (I think) is almost 400 miles from Vandenberg. I have seen a meteor that looked a lot like a rocket -- except that it was descending, not ascending! This was on Nov. 22 of this year at around 7:20 pm, coincidentally. Many other folks on the West Coast saw it and reported it. He could be right,12 0r 13 years ago saw one while camped below Ehrenburg on the Colorado river. this one was at dusk and could also see the contrail which looked red with the sun reflecting

RE: Geminid meteors Fri and Sat -- head for the boonies!

I saw eight meteors in 20 minutes at 1 am light-polluted, hazy Orange County, with a big fat moon in the sky -- I can only imagine what that meteor shower looked liked in a good location! Next year, there is no moon for the Geminids on DEc. 13 -- it's time to start planning a camping trip for next winter. Someplace warm, dark, and clear . . . . I know a great place about 50 miles from Q you need 4wd,and should have at least 2 or 3 rigs incase someone gets stuck. Another great place would be the primitive campground at split mt in the Anza Borrego area

RE: Geminid meteors Fri and Sat -- head for the boonies!

We were caught on the Bradshaw trail Friday and got a little rain and completely socked in by low clouds at the 2500ft elevation. fri nite at camp the cloud went away,got a little cold about 38,Anyway right after dark saw the biggest meteor I have ever seen. one of the guys around the fire said look,its a comet.It didn't have a tail,but it looked like flames or gas was coming out in front of it.It looked like a ball inside a v.

Going tent camping this weekend

I know this is not exactly 100% tent camping but close enough for an old guy.
RWDIII 12/09/14 08:52am Tent Camping

Three times today, lol. I want a new F350 XL DRW with the 6.2 gaser, super cab,long bed with 4X4 and 4.30 gears. I only added a few extras on and it is still around 40K I guess the 08 F250 Psd will have to work a little while longer. Jayco My plain jane LX F250 was about 40.5,after rebates and some back and forth drove it home for about 34.5:)

RE: Chandler to Yuma, 347 to Maricopa & 238 to Gila Bend

If you are interested in history,this route is the closest you can get to the old Buterfield stage route that ran from Maricopa wells to the Gila Bend stage station in 1859,It is also the route the Mormon Bn went and the route Kearny and Kit Carson took.

RE: Bought a truck on Black Friday sale

Expect a much bouncier ride on the trails than with the F150. Other than that you will love the truck. My F250 is built like a tank (and rides like one). Thanks for reply,last year at Anza Borrego I aired down to 25lbs on washboard sandy trial to split mountain. I then aired them back up before getting on the hiway. on the 10 ply,empty whats safe to air them down.I was thinking 25-30 lbs but the guy at discount said never go below 50%,so no lower than 40 lbs.I run 80 with camper,60 empty.

RE: Normal Transmission Temperature?

I don't know about the Chevy gauges,but the Ford gauges are little better than idiot lights,When I put on the scan gauge I got a digital readout. from 180 to 205 the temp gauge never moved off of center. When I got a new 2015 F250,the first mod I made was to install the scan gauge. the 250 seems to run 196 vs 191 on the 150 and trans temps seem to be 175 vs 165. My point is that the stock gauges will show hot only after damage is done,but the scan gauge will show increase degree by degree before stock gauges even move

RE: Motor Trend 2015 Truck of the Year

I didn't click the link...who paid for the award this year? Exactly, just buy the Ford you want. I believe GM still owes us around $8 billion, and I don't buy Fiats even if they are cute. gm stock was sold by the gov at a 10.6 billion loss. money will never be recovered. the fiat pickups aren't bad,I did look at them,but they are all made in Mexico,at least all the 3/4 tons I looked at.

RE: Bought a truck on Black Friday sale

Nice truck! I might have missed it, but 6.2 gasser? How do you like it? Nice looking truck, I love white trucks. The only problem is that its not a crew cab... I've got a 2 year old a 9 month pregnant wife. The supercab isn't enough. Yes it is a plain jane white 6.2 Wanted short bed to fit in garage Thanks for pointing this out I fixed sig li:)ne

RE: Bought a truck on Black Friday sale

NICE TV! Personally I sought out white when I picked up my new-2-Me 2013, I think it looks sharp. Oh, and we made your exhaust system where I work. Manifolds to tailpipe. Coils of stainless steel rolled into pipe, bent, muffler resonator and cat assembled and welded together all at one Plant. You simply would not believe the amount of engineering and quality control that went into it. Should last you a lifetime! Thanks for reply..I was under the truck to see the best way to run the 7 pin connector cable and saw the massive 2 mufflers.Why 2 and why so massive.And no one was not the cat converter:h

RE: Bought a truck on Black Friday sale

Had that identical truck except long bed. You have a solid bulletproof truck there. Mileage seems real optimistic though. Never got more than 13+ hwy and 11-12mpg commuting mostly hi way. The E locker is the best ! Ouch and keep them straps off the paint! Haha Time will tell,For the first 1000 miles will drive at 65,1800 Rpm, on hiway.Then I will put on the camper,about 1700lbs wet.The wifes Explorer mpg guage is very accurate,so I think Im pretty close.I get 12.5 to 13 around town.All these readings are empty.

Bought a truck on Black Friday sale

http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/6C6F1982-D51C-445C-8035-D42F79CB7F21_zpsrjgjjrkh.jpg height=600 width=480Bought a truck on Black Friday sale went to order HD F150. available only with 8 ft bed and long wheelbase. earliest I could expect it would be April. full price,maybe $1000 rebate. So I go out in the lot and there is this 2015 Scab 63/4 ft bed 4wd,elect locker,power equip group,skid plates,shift on fly,upgrade seat,cruise,steering wheel controls,snow plow pack,trailer brake pack . Drove it home for 34k after sale rebates. DW isn't crazy about color,white but ordered Sirius,tie downs, and step running boards from Amazon. in stalled the scan guage so I could have digital readouts on the water temp,trans temp and voltage. Two things that I noticed was truck water is 195 and trans is also 190 From Phoenix to Casa Grand got 17 mpg @65Mph on the trip up got 16.3 with the F150. The F150 was a great truck,I had it for 9 years. Not as exciting as an Eco boost,or Eco diesel but works for me. Will get pics as soon as it stops raining. yes it rains in Arizona:B Not a good pic Going to break in the truck the rifgt way,Going 4 wheeling with some friends on the Bradshaw trail which was a stagecoach road from Indio to Ehrenberg in the 1860s.Am taking the tent because last time I 4 wheeled with camper I broke a window and shook up the stuff in the camper. http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/D02BF3C7-E07B-48EF-B9BD-89239A8951CE_zpscih3qx63.jpg height=600 width=480 had 560 miles on truck when we started trail 4wd and electric locker worked great even with small tires the TPMS sucks.let out a some air fot the sand and and every time you start the low pressure msg comes on.I wish I could delet it! Hey I'm 4 wheeling in sand,I know I have low pressure,I just spent 15 minutes letting air out of the tires http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/F8178D64-8768-4998-9372-7C89B158BB72_zpsfkz27f7b.jpg height=600 width=480
