Yep, my golf cart. The rear is just as stiff with or without the lift. I just thought the tires protruded too far with the 2" spacer (off my son's cart), and wasn't far enough with the 1". Since they don't make a 1-½" spacer, I'll probably go with the 2". Been working on fence all morning. Then it got to be 95ºF! Too hot for this old man!

Maybe I'll spend the afternoon in the A/C and put my '66 Centennial Winchester 94 back together. The magazine ring had broken and it's been at the gun doctor getting a new one fitted and blued.

And start my design for a gun cabinet for the back of my golf... "range" cart! Something like this'n:

It's funny you mention a gun rack for your range cart- I'm thinking about making a rack for my Polaris Ranger!

Ooohhh! NOW I got you Griff! You mean wheel spacers, to widen the track width. That shouldn't cause any issue as long as the wheel bearings are good. It puts a little more load on them. The front can sometimes get funky with scrub radius but it won't be a problem on your "range cart".
Personally, I like the tires under the fender or flare. If they stick out a little it's ok, but not way out. Just my thing. :D

Dang! THATS MY BOY!!!! (Jay). That's a guy who knows what's going on in the lift department......

I'm confused Jay.....you just posted you were in Alaska. How did you get home so fast?

Griff......Is your golf cart for cowboy action shoots? You are gonna make a lot of guys jealous. You sure have a lot of gizmos on there......I notice you have it so N-rigged there's no room for a cooler or shot glasses. Still looks like you have room for a bong on the side.----6

Six, this is a wild guess, but I'm assuming he probably took a commercial jet airliner home! Steve Miller has a song about them....
OW, too bad you couldnt have spent 3-4 days up there.

Turtledude......I hear ya.....but it still don't make sense...he had his family with him..guns, gear etc.....maybe he left by himself because he had to work......or,maybe, just maybe, he was mutinied by everyone he was with and sent home. I think he was worried that I knew where he was and that I was gonna steal back my Colts.---6 :D

Oh no Six, my range cart will definitely have a cooler in place of one those side boxes. Gotta have water on the hot Texas summer days! And let me tell ya, ain't no one gonna be jealous of this piece of garbage! But it will have a certain panache!! Kinda like the rat rod of golf carts... Next up... rattle can paint job! After I get the new seats! The Honda power plant is sure nice.

Don't knock coat hangers! Was more than once a buddy fixed his boat rack on his p/u cap with 2 batteries, jumper cables and coat hangers! When you are 75 miles from electricity ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

Yes, the wife and I flew home. The kids are being stationed back in Kodiak. June is transfer season. They just wanted to drive it as a trip. We went along to help with the baby and the dog........and to make the trip with them.
We will be going back for visits and will have time to see more of Alaska. The ride from Tok to Anchorage was just incredible. What country!

I`m waiting to hear from my VA service rep.

Pitchy.....I really like your hay bales...how in the hell did you make them look like they were machine made?

Looks like Norma is learning the trade...don't you feel bad having her do the lions share of the work while you sit in the shade and sip rum and cokes?

Yep Pitchy, they are taking a hundred and some out of my S.S. ,,I hear there's a lot of illegal immigrants that need help from us working folk...

Ok, Jays "back in town".......

Yea, hotter than hell here too......do nothing day.----6

If you want to use the VA, you do NOT have to pay the Medicare, but you have to go to a Social Security office to sign the waver.

Yes, but all the others on the Canadian side were all the old metal ones. Kinda neat, unless you're on a bike. :D
Some had been capped and paved, however.

Really hoping you get to a doc, Lenn. I know you hate to hear that, but I can't help it. I ain't got many friends and have to keep the ones I have.

Gunny,
Well, thanks, but I wasn't worried. I had the oldest boy staying here and my old dad coming over when the boy had to leave for work. I couldn't be gone and have fun otherwise.

Todd,
I saw Wild West Guns but didn't stop. Not worried as I will get back there several times over the next five years. This time was more about the trip.

I was shocked. They never so much as looked in the Jeep or asked to see the rifle we had at either crossing.
The Canadians asked about 50 questions regarding handguns and ammo. How many he shipped, if he carried in the US, when the last time one was in the Jeep....
He asked if we had handgun ammo.......the rifle we had was a .357, so we said we had 357 "rifle ammo". :D
He never hassled us though.
Figgered sure with rough azzed hillbilly looking dudes he would. Musta been my honest face. :D

Thanks Jay, i`m in a pickle as usual, i went on State health care because the VA was jerking me around at the time but now they want to force me on Medicare and are going to drop the State plan so i don`t know who`s going to pay for anything.
Got to get expert advice i guess, ya need a lawyer to live in todays world. :twisted:

OW & Pitchy you both need 10 watt solar panels! I have 2 panels that are battery tenders. They use 2 wire plug connectors. I keep my mower, quad and ranger plugged in, always have a charged battery! I got one from Northern Tool the other from Amazon. Less than a hunnerd bucks .

Look here...you retarts keep talking about stupid batteries........I'm watching the Democratic debate and laughing so hard I'll buy you all new batteries if you just shut the phuck up. President Trump is laughing so hard I can hear him slapping his knee from Japan. :D

We are DOOMED if ANY of them become POTUS.

Pitchy......I don't care what you say about YOU doing all the work...Norma deserves a good back rub for her extreme effort to make you look good. BTW....those bales of tall grass really look good......I'd be more impressed if they were alfalfa.-----6

Pitchy...had to go back and study your pictures........yes....you cut one hell of a lot of grass..by hand!. Then I saw the box you made for baling and the slots for the string........for real, me and mom are impressed by your common sense ingenuity. Well done! Mom says you were born a hundred years too late....so was I.

Now, if you don't mind, can you send us the hay for our 🐴 .

All the rain we've had, there's enough grass for ten horses in our little back pasture. ---6

Yep Gunny i use a battery tender too, great thing they are.
Thanks Six, i didn`t invent the baler you can actually buy them but easy to make and work pretty good but i wouldn`t want to put up tons of hay with one.
Yep Norma done good, hard worker. :)

LED light module. It makes things appear bigger than they are.
30/30 Winchester: Not accurate enough fer varmints, barely adequate for small deer; BUT In a 10" to 14" barrelled pistol; is good for moose/elk to 200 yards; ground squirrels to 300 metres

Turtledude is the WINNER!!!!! I had this LED lightbulb in my drill press. I was drilling a can of spray paint .......done this many times......and the dang thing about exploded in my face...shooting paint and flame all over.....anyway, the bulb was destroyed so I wanted to see what it looked like inside.

Turtledude.....you win Pitchy's three bales of hay.......he said to stop over and pick em up and for you to bring a 1.75.----6

Six no fair announcing a winner- I wasnt home to chime in!

Ok I'm going to ask...WHY were you drilling a can of paint?!?

So today I heard some poor baztard hit a bear with a motorcycle- killed the bear but I haven't been able to find any details about it. Even texted a ranger buddy, he hadn't heard anything...

I've said that before........there is NO way you would be able to sit around and do nothing. You and I are alike in that we can't sit still for more than about 15 minutes before we get edgy. I've been told I have this adult ADD shyt. I consider it a curse and it's why I've always had substance abuse and depression issues. People like us feel better when we stay busy and accomplish shyt.

TWO MATCHES this weekend! Tomorrow is the 200-500 meter long range "Buffalo Match" where we shoot silhouettes with old time single shots. Kind of the same as BPCR but we can use smokeless and gas checked bullets. Ahhh.....it's more of an all day BS session. In my original Winchester Hi-Wall in 40-82 the rifling twist is 1-28 that was made for at-the-time "Express" bullets which are light for caliber so after 300 meters my bullets get pushed around by the wind a lot.

OK Gunny.....on to paint cans.....I come from an era where we got our money's worth out of anything so when I get a can of spray paint that's clogged....(not the nozzle, the inside stem)....I found that I can "rescue" what paint is left by drilling a hole in the can and pouring the paint in a small container and using a brush to use it. The hole has to be big like 3/8ths or 1/2" so the pressure is let out fast. Well, I was going real slow with the drill press and I must have heated up the spot where I was drilling because just as the bit broke through it caught fire and started spinning all over the garage with the paint in a flame. Now you know why I'm always in the hospital. I should have put it in the freezer for 20 minutes first.

I've since found out it's easier to just shoot the top of the can with a .22......outside in the grass... :D ---6

We had some action about 7 miles down the road that made national news......a bro showed up for district court and somehow got in a fight with a cop out in the parking lot....the bro grabbed the cops gun and another cop busted a few caps on the bro...then....there were witnesses.....some scabby girl said she saw the whole thing and said the bro was on his stomach with the cop over him and "for no reason, another cop shot him."

Yea......the bro will be pushing up daisies in a few months as most of em get buried in cardboard coffins and styrofoam vaults.---6

The district judge is related to Griff from what I read.

So who do you believe- the 'witnesses ' or the arrest record?

I did find a little info about the bear motorcycle accident, seems the bear ran into the bike broadside. The guy was treated for non life threatening injuries, bear died at the scene and the motorcycle was later driven away.

Good thing it be A/C not AOC or it would just be more hot air!
Good luck today Jack.
I am in Chesapeake Va getting ready to introduce my old college girlfriend and her husband to Mrs fordwannabe. They live in Montana and are here visiting their son who is stationed here. Haven’t seen her in 34 years and Mrs FWB is getting bristled. This seemed like a good idea until now. Oh boy.
