It's been awhile since my grandpa's death. Mostly over at his house cleaning out over 40 years of junk in that basement. No really we took out over 30 bags *the big black bags* of trash,2 dryer's, and 1 washer, and didnt even dent the basement.

So I'm busy to even get on here. just letting you guys know whats up.

Ya thanks guys.

Ya been still cleaning that house got it down to maybe 30years left of junk left lol.

So far we had 2 yard sales at my mom's cousin's place, and when were going to have 1 at grandpa's house we have to move the truck to are house.

But awhile back I found out I was getting grandpa's truck he had, and a few other stuff.

Very sad he only drove this sonoma for about over a year.

Bought it with like 34k miles on it, and it has 41k since he last drove it a week before his death.

Not quiet yet in a few weeks we need to change the plates from Illinois to Missouri plates, and have it tested in Missouri to.

We might just kept the truck over at his house till we sell the house.Unless I want to kept it at our house.

looks like its still in great condition

Ya he always hand wash it atleast every 2weeks never been out in the sun much,only has a little piece chipped off under the rear bumper getting out of the driveway I notice.

i'd be holding my head high everytime i drove it, thinkin my grandpa was sittin in the passenger seat listenin to the radio with me.

Ya when I heard the news about that I was getting it. When I sat in it I started breaking down crying since. We used to drive it everytime I was up there

But 1 thing he never used that radio in there besides I think 3 times. He always had it off with the window down.

So I tested it out, and sounds good.Didnt put a CD in it yet to check that but I think that will be good to.


But ya always kept it clean, and always maintenance it when needed to.

Still miss him tho

Sounds good. I have a piece of my Grandfather with me very often. I carried one of his knives everywhere I went for a long time. I also used to carry one of his pocket watches when I dressed up. I miss him a lot and it has been 17 years. I wish the most that he could have met his great-grandson they would have gotten along very well.

I'll try to hurry back LOL.

But there is mostly 1 thing I will change is to take off that GMC emblem in the grill, but its all 1 piece so I might need to buy a new grill.


It's also a SLS, I just love the sport suspension thats good on the corners, good power, 16 - 22 city and 23 - 28 highway mpg. Mostly everything I need is in that truck

Unless its snows, and getting out of are neighborhood o boy I got a better chance getting my ATV up it in 2wd.

    • Cleaning/sealing electrical

      Thought I'd throw this one in the club section to help raise the lack of activity here. I'm fixing up a '00 Bayou 220 that I picked up last weekend; needs the carb rebuilt, at least that's all I was hoping it needed. Anyways, decided to check the battery, starter, spark, all that jazz so I was good to go when I got the carb fixed.. and that's when I found an intermittent short in the start switch as well as the headlight switch. So I removed the switch housing from the handlebar to find this: I dismantled the entire assembly, blew it all out with compressed air, cleaned everything including the corroded contacts, and then reassembled it all making sure to put dielectric grease on all the exposed electrical. It looks 1000x better than before and everything works as it should (though I think I installed the kill switch backwards lol).  My question is this: Is that good enough? As a former auto mechanic, I'd always seal any external electronics to prevent dirt, moisture, etc from getting in. However, the design of the housing doesn't really make this possible. I'm not trying to make this thing 100% submersible, but with the switch being old/original I'd like to know it won't fail on me if I get caught in a downpour or something.

    • STOLEN ATV: Stolen from our house in Porter Texas

      My husband purchased this atv for me, his wife last December because he’s been out of town for 3 years and missed many birthdays and holidays. Last night on November 14th we went to bed. I stayed up until 1 in the morning on November 15th. At 4:30am I woke up to the atv gone. It had locks on the breaks. We still owe about $8740 on it.

    • Cleaning a Nikasil Plated Cylinder

      In this video, Jonathan describes how he cleaned a Nikasil plated cylinder. Aluminum cylinders are often coated with a harder material such as Nikasil (Nickel Silicon Carbide). Over time, the softer aluminum of the pistons can rub off onto the cylinder. When rebuilding the top-end, this should be cleaned off. This can be done using hydrochloric acid which reacts with aluminum to produce hydrogen gas and aluminum chloride, which washed off with water. Since Nikasil is resistant to corrosion, it is undamaged and protects the cylinder during this process. Here is the chemical reaction: 2 Al (s) + 6 HCl (aq) → 2 AlCl3 (aq) + 3 H2 (g)   Resurgence Small Engine Inc. ATV, Snowmachine, Motorcycle, & Outdoor Power Equipment

    • '93 Big bear 4x2, 350cc. Fresh rebuild, black smoke and bogg out

      Hey guys im a new member here, names chris and I just paid out the ass to fix my big bear 350. It got rings valve seals a rocker arm a head gasket. I got out yesterday for about an hour before it started to back fire on me and shot a huge black cloud of smoke out. I couldn't get it started so my buddy towed me back to the pick up point and after about an hour of sitting it started up like it was no issue at all. I got my beast back yesterday and have all weekend to get into it. Anything would be great thank you! Note a slight cloud to the left of the photo. Couldn't get one of the thicker smoke

      Gotta say i miss you guys, i havnt been into the sport at all as of late, But i still love ATVs and offroading! Ive mainly been focusing on heads up drag racing. But ill be around a little bit more because of winter, what have you guys been doing?
    • By powermaddd400ex
      as the title says, with school ending and summer begining things have been pretty hectic round here so imma fill yall in on my quad life.
      the 400ex is for the most part done, ive pretty much got it the way i want it. the carrier bearings are going out on it so i think ill invest on a twin row carrier. now in about a year, we should have made our last payment on the 400. soon after that we will be selling the 400. idk if i will part out the big things or not, its still up in the air. after she is sold i will invest in a new ktm450xc, which at a ceratin dealership is selling for a smoking price at $6,300 otd before haggling...
      all this is HOPEFUL. the 400 has been nice, but i finally figured out that the whole reason my motor blew at the begining of the year was because ive been riding pretty much balls to the wall, high revved. its really a shame to get rid of it after all the work i put into it, but hopefully the reward in the end will be well worth it.
      heres a picture of how the 400 sits.

      Hey everyone, wow it has been a long time since I have been on here i know. Here are some pictures taken from July - August. Since the end of August I have been deployed in South America and now wont be riding much since i have warrant officer school right when i return in December, enjoy the pics. The pictures on my LTR were of me racing a tomahawk, WV where i got 2nd and Rausch Creek, PA where i got 7th after crashing twice. I was in 4th when i rolled my quad, damn things are heavy after racing for an hour. the pictures of my on the banshee were just some fun riding in the coal mines somewhere NE of Hazelton, PA. It is better to go to my gallery to view the images since there is a size limit to post them here. Great to be back. Tim
