After more ordering mishaps, I ended up with one more set of beadlocks than what I needed. They're in the parts for sale section. I ordered solid state DC relays for my fan setup. I need to get to work on that stuff as soon as I get my ass back to it. About time to grind again.

I need a different relay setup as well, is that the winch thing you ordered?

Sounds like you need to give a shout out to the company that let you keep a second set of wheels! Where did you get them?

Oh, wankers! This went south quickly - they made a mistake and they wouldn't take the second set back?

No, I had that idea after I had ordered parts. I like the idea of using a 250amp winch relay for the high speed fan as it's already weather sealed and proven. That and it's $30 and I just paid $20 for a solid state 80 amp DC->DC relay. I bought 2 actually. More to follow.

They would if I paid to ship 4 19"x19"x10" packages weighing 49lbs a piece back across the country on my dime. It's not like I put in an amazon cancellation request 3 times in the couple days before they shipped them out or anything............my fault. I'm just done buying things. I'm not good at it.

Is what it is. I didn't get a bad price, just got stuck holding another set until someone else buys a set of 17" aluminum beadlocks that don't look like ass for $300 each.

Wheels sold, drew up my relay setup, forgot to take a picture. I have to find a place to bring one power and ground in, then distribute. If only something like this was readily available........ Also need to find a place behind the dash/tucked away to put the thing. Slowly progressing.

Also hoping to find a black friday sale on seats, time will tell.

I'm a little different, I don't want a set. I want a PRP comp pro +2 width for the drivers seat and I'm looking for a passengers seat that still reclines and will tumble out of the way for rear passengers(kids). Most of the sales are on sets of seats and I don't really want a set. 2 seats, but not matching.

I like my recliner seat. On long trail ride days I will kick it back a notch (where it bottoms out on the harness cross bar) but for more technical crawling or hill climbs I will set it more upright. It really helps on steep climbs where your weight pushes back into the seat.

That's what I'm concerned with. My comfortable driving seat spot is about 3-4" further back than my wheeling seat spot. I sat in a lineup of seats at KOH and the COMP pro +2w was by far the most comfortable for me. Wade has them and really likes them too but his are +2w, +4T. People look like little kids sitting in his seats

Someone needs to get back in the barn and work on things to get any traction.
