Re: Starting to suffer from 4x4 envy

You caught it in front of the house. It belongs to the Owner of the Shop I work at. Aluminess shipped the rack up and it does not fit. We are waiting for a fix now. It also seems like the Ladder is for the Passenger door but was supposed to be for the driver.

2001 RWB Quigley (not a SMB but love it)
Lots of Motorcycles (Dual Sports, Sportbikes and Sport Tourers)

It is kind of like a Quigley and is more for added traction not hard Off Road.
Back in the day I remember +/- 10% was supposed to be effective in ratio difference in Jeeps. Nothing is exact, even with the same tires at the same pressures you're still going to have a different effective diameter and therefor different RPM at each tire.

and then
everything changed
