I'd cruise that chopped series around LA. Take it to Bob's Bigboy in Toluca Lake on Friday night.

I was just telling someone about that ridiculous photo.

Was it Sheki or Sinuhe that did freelance work for HK?

He is hard to see in that picture. Maybe this will help.

Hey Evan, stand up so Jack can see you.

That pic has to be one of the all-time greats.

Everything about it, from the lame tattoo to the roll cage to the cracked windscreen to the wannabe Defender lines of the ULINE dash to the 2 AWG power cables to the laptop mount to the patently apparent effort to try to do a good job, just scream chump.

Good find.

Oh shit.

That's Jason Michaels Red Rhino H2eater For Breakfast? How fitting.

Here's Mr. Xtreeme Team on DiscoWeb:

Back in day with RR's and SIII support vehicles it was the shit!

This is the same guy who wanted to mount a spare onto his Rangie's hood:

He's so bad ass he requires custom springs. Presumably, the custom springs will have 286.7 and 198.3 lb. rates. This time, he won't repeat his previous mistake. This time, he'll rhinoline the custom springs red for the true "Red Rhino" effect.

Here he begs for money in public:

We are Jason Michaels and Jason Stone, and we have recently to been selected as a team in the upcoming USA to Belize Land Rover expedition that will take thirty participants and their personal vehicles over 5000 miles from Houston, TX to Belize and back.

The three-week expedition will depart August 24, 2004 with the objective of raising money and awareness for TIDE (Toledo Institute for Development and Environment), a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving environments in Belize that are currently threatened by many primitive farming techniques.

We “Jasons” have been friends since we were fourteen years-old and, Jason Michaels has participated in several off-road events in the Southeast and loves working the Land Rover community. He is a member of the Florida Land Rover Club and has helped organize several Land Rover related events in the southeast. He truly has a passion for the out doors.

Jason Stone will be Jason Michael’s partner in the USA to Belize expedition and is currently a senior English and Spanish major at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. Jason Stone dedicates his time to free-lance writing projects. He will be writing a review on the entire expedition which will be submitted to several Land Rover and Outdoor magazines with the hope of reaching new supporters for TIDE.

Due to the charitable nature of the event, we must secure adequate funding in order to both equip our team for the expedition and pay an entry fee that will later be contributed to TIDE. The event will be publicized by the Discovery channel when Overland films Inc. airs its educational documentary of the trip in an effort to promote conservancy, commerce and bio-diversity.

If any individual is in interested in helping support us your contribution will not only help us further our personal mission to compete in this great event, but will strengthen environmental awareness through TIDE. We can process personal checks and PayPal at this time for donations.

From a business owner’s standpoint, in exchange for your sponsorship, our expedition vehicle will bare your company’s name, which will be visible to the international Rover community and general public along our route to Belize and back. During the event there will be multiple photo’ops and press junkets where your company’s name will also receive exposure. Your company’s name will also be visible when Overland films Inc. airs its educational documentary of the trip in an effort to promote conservancy, commerce and bio-diversity. There will also be mention of your company in the human/team interest piece that is being written and submitted to several off-road and outdoor magazines for publication.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration and we look forward to hearing from you along with keeping you up to date with our progress on the expedition. Please email any questions to jason@specialtytools.com.

OK, asshole, here's how it works.

Fourwheeling is your hobby. Don't ask others to support your hobby. If you can't bankroll your hobby, then you have the wrong hobby. Get a hobby you can afford. If you can afford your hobby but can't bankroll your participation in extended trips and events, then limit your hobby to aspects of it that you can afford.

Furthermore, don't tell me you're participating in event xyz because it's a charity event and your participation is motivated by your great altruism. You're participating in event xyz because you want to participate in event xyz. Whether or not event xyz is charitable is irrelevant to you. It's irrelevant to the event xyz organizers as well. The event xyz organizers play the charity angle to try to make their event more legit. You play the charity angle to try to get free stuff from others. You know. I know it. And the event xyz organizers know it.

Don't play the charity card. If you can't afford what you want to do, then don't do it.

In the owner's own words:

A local muffler shop bent the correct angle in a short piece of pipe to get from the collector to the muffler (used the stock muffler and connector pipe as a pattern). Including the bending they charged me $8.73 for the 2 1/4" OD aluminized steel connector pipe (they said the bending should be extra, but included it in the material cost). The muffler is a Thrush Glasspack part no. 24069 with a 2 1/4" ID inlet and outlet. I fabricated a muffler bracket out of some 1/8" thick aluminum scraps.

Agreed.

But John, it's not a "trip" it is an Expedition.

Should the front track-rod be below the panhard rod? I think the geometry is off but I'm not sure how to measure it all. Is there some sort of height at rest vs, axle width x travel equation to work it out?
