I suppose I really should try this Bud Light you mention. It'll be fun, I'll skip the Chateau Brion just the once just to see how the common man lives.

Man....that's not fair! I thought I did a good job keeping my dysfunctions in the closet. Dave, you are almost right.....the fact that Cruiser guys don't need as many tools is simply because they don't need as many as Mini guys! Mini's have larger cargo room so they can haul enough parts to finish the trail! Cruiser guys carry the fridges and a/v equipment because they can. Rocks, desert, snow and mall....Cruisers are ready thanks to Mr. Toyoda!

Anyway, I have a fridge.

And bike pump and backup ARB compressor.

And 2 pairs of wheel chocks.

And an industrial first aid kit.

And 3 lbs drilling hammer.

And two shovels and a real ax.

And no less than 3 bottles openers (that I know of).

And emergency food, water pump, Optimus 99 stove.

And a couple of tarps and a sleeping bag.

And Wrigley's gum.
OK you win!

You know I was lucky enough to be Walker Evan's desert racing shop about 4 years ago and saw all of his desert racing trucks. In there was the first truck to have these long a-arms. I believe he was the first. Off course this was built for speed and such. Not for crawlin'. But I did see his competion crawler too. This really is neat stuff.

Any interest in a Solid Axle Eliminator Kit for the 80 Series??

Would you want to go 100MPH+ in a Moon Buggy?? I saw a buggy that came out of his shop at an XRRA Race, the Front A pillar Collapsed into the cab from a 10' Drop.. I think i would want a lot more Triangulation and Distance from the cage for a KOTH Racer!

Those guys work is top notch, and i would have no issues with a rock racer with that design, but when you start talking about over 100 mph in the desert, i would want some more tube!
