    What should I do with this?

    I don't have the time or the space to part it out, so I'm offering it for free to anyone why wants to go get it.

    What should I do with this?

    Free to a good home... or a bad home, for that matter. Good for parts or an off-road rig (some assembly required, batteries not included). It's been six years since I rolled it and it's been sitting out at my parents' camp, so I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be fixing it up as originally...

    a good photo website????

    This is the first time I've been here since I rolled my X about a year and a half ago and this is the first thread I read. Man I love this place. :D I've gotten "similar" pictures developed at kmart. Don't go to walmart... they look at and remove all "naughty" pictures and put a slip...

    What should I do with this?

    I rolled my truck a few months ago (pix here). Now i'm trying to figure out what to do with it. Should I part it out or make it drivable again? How much could I expect to get if I part it out? 102k 1999 XLT

    Severe body work on a 2nd gen X

    I rolled my X (thread here) so I'm looking for body parts for it (lots of parts). I've found many G1 X's and was wondering if any of the parts (most notably the doors and roof/pillars) are the same. I know that the hood, front end and fenders are different but the roof assembly and doors...

    Another one bites the dust

    So my current plan is to get a cheap car to last me until I get this thing paid off. However, I'm going to get my X back on the road. I need to find a donor X to get the roof, fenders, hood and a few doors off of. So far, I have not been successfull. It will never be my primary vehicle...

    Another one bites the dust

    I have about a 2-3" shackle/tt lift. I'm sure that had a fair amount to do with it tipping over. Anyone know how much Perry's fenders and hood are?

    Another one bites the dust

    I was doing about 50 (in a 55) at the bottom of the hill and had my foot off the gas going up the hill so I was probably below 40 when I went off the road and less than 30 when it rolled.

    Another one bites the dust

    Looked at it a little more... i can get by with... front r fender (but as long as i'm replacing one, i might as well go with a pair from perry) front l, front r, & rear l doors windshield, front r door window (i had MA insurance so I have 0 deductable glass) grill both bumpers windshield...

    Another one bites the dust

    So, I found out yesterday that I don't have collision on my truck. :mad: All my pics can be found here It runs fine but obviously will take a good amount of work to make it drivable. Anyone have any suggestions? I've considered making it a convertable but since I have to replace the...

    Another one bites the dust

    Ya know... that has actually occured to me. It would definately be my cheapest option. Since they're probably not going to give me much for it, maybe I'll be able to buy it for nothing and keep it as a toy.

    Another one bites the dust

    If I had just kept going straight, I would have ended up in a corn field. That would be a vast improvement compared to attempting to recover and rolling it. Hind sight is 20/20.

    Another one bites the dust

    My brother-in-law was thinking about selling his Ranger about a month ago but I think he may have scrapped that idea. I'm going to check with them later today. However, I took care of a ticket in June and they screwed something up and suspended my license for an unanswered ticket. So, I...

    Another one bites the dust

    I came over the top of a hill and there was a sharp curve. I went off the road and almost got it back on the road when the tires caught and it rolled. It landed on the tires and when I looked over, my dog was standing in the middle of the road just staring at me. The engine was still...

    Another one bites the dust

    Yesterday I rolled my X. :( I'm fine. My dog got ejected but miraculously he's ok. The guy who lives across the street from where I rolled does body work and says it's totalled.

    Body Kit?

    I think the thread everyone is referring to is the one where we were debating whether or not a Civic would fit in the back of an X.

    How to determine if battery is bad???

    Lonestar's right... if your alternator were bad, you wouldn't have made it 300 miles. However, your A/C (or anything else) shouldn't be drawing anything off the battery while the car is running (exception being a large amp when the bass hits hard). My guess would be some other part of the...

    which trailer hitch?

    I have the square tube hidden hitch class3 and wouldn't but it again. It uses factory holes so there's no drilling but it has two vertical bolts and two horizontal bolts. The next one I buy will only have horizontal bolts. The vertical bolts are near the end of the frame rails and don't have...

    where do you buy guys earrings?

    Not sure about just the right ear but if a guy has both pierced, that's not gay. Every time i open up kazaa, i get a popup for I usually highly recommend against patronizing any business that uses annoying advertising but you may want to try there. If you do order something...

    What's your favorite drinking game?

    I've played that game many times. As long as you don't quit the game before it's finished, you're guarenteed to get $h!tfaced. The best part is that of all the drinking games I've played, it's the only one that gets easier as you drink.

    What's your favorite drinking game?

    Absolutely the worst drinking game ever Nails: You have a large log, probably about 12-18 inches diameter and a foot or so tall. Take one 16penny nail for each person playing. Put the nails into the wood about 1/2 inch (just enough to keep them standing) in front of each person. A...

    What's your favorite drinking game?

    We don't play beer pong here. We play something similar called "Beirut ", which is basically beer pong with a quarter instead of a ping pong ball. Another favorite is "I never", but don't really play it much anymore. It's great with people you don't really know but now I mostly hang out...

    What's your favorite drinking game?

    Quarters can be interesting, especially when the title is preceeded by the word "strip". :D The only problem is that it can sometimes be difficult to find a surface that the quarters bounce off of nicely.

    What's your favorite drinking game?

    After the beer bong thread, I think this is the next logical place to go on the spiral downward. My favorite game is 3man. It's played with two dice and the directions can be found here. I've never really been big on card games. It's too hard to operate a handfull of cards when you can...

    Biggest beer bong you've done

    I built a 9.5 beer funnel but never even attempted it. It was around for almost a semester (which roughly translates to about 50 parties) and I only saw one person do the entire thing. However, I saw many, many people end up covered in berr trying. It had a large funnel that was attached to...

    HELP!!! Brake Problem

    How's your fluid level? If it's low, top it off, park in a clean place on your driveway and check in the morning to see it there's any fluid on the ground.

    My Explorer is turning 13

    Mine hit 100k the other day. :( I know it's not a lot but it's like the human equivilent of turning 30.

    When do you change blinker fluid

    I was thinking about getting the hollow spark plug wires and the extra retardant plugs but judging by the descriptions, it sounds like they may not be compatible with each other. Has anyone tried them together?

    The Shakes!

    They usually go away on their own a few days after you stop drinking.
