It cured me of two things: owning GM 6.2 diesels and owning trucks with slushpump transmissions!

My wife has a diesel Blazer, but it's not military. (Meaning it has overdrive & A/C!)

I changed the gearing in the M1031 so she'll do an easy 65 mph now. I also discovered in West Texas you don't need A/C with 35% relative humidity, even if it's 95*+ in the sun it's VERY tolerable.

Re: Big Mac I bought for $500!!!!!

Here are some more pics of Big Mac. In addition, the overall length is 30' dead on. The travel trailer is 33' exactly. So over all length of both combined is 63'! No woories about being over length! I can even add a bicycle tote on the back of the trailer and still be in the clear.

Figures now I'm having issues posting pics

Most frustrating.

Re: Big Mac I bought for $500!!!!!

Well, here's one of the links:

This is the seat I'm looking to replace with a conversion van chair:

Here's the travel trailer:

Some of the damage I need to fix:

http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/8503/p5220030j.jpg

I'm looking to take out these steps:

Then take this hand hold in the stairwell:

and put it on the outside alongside the handicap door, remove the elevator since it has some bad damage, and put some nerf steps below the second door:

You should have a size option on imageshack to automatically resize your pics to 480 X 640 (I think those are the numbers) that's the best size for forum pics as they aren't too large.

Smitty
I did that in previous pics. However, I'm going back to imageshack to resize. I found out the camera was set on highest resolution. My wife (B.S. in IT) says she can resize everything. I'll get her to do it. I'm hardware, she's software. So I'll figure it out tomorrow. I'm going to take more pics when I'm out there Wednesday & Thursday. I have a Captain's chair (and other assorted parts) quest for Monday & Tuesday.
