Post updating members section.
I was curious if there was a way to update our members section. My future mods says I'll be done with a gas tank lift, custom speaker box and many other things by easter '08. I'd like to adjust that.

The site is still static html so we have to edit it by hand. JUst let Dan or myself know what you'd like changed and we can update it. I'm still looking into making the whole site dynamic and allowing users the ability to edit their pages.

Yeah unfortunately we have to manually do it. But just post here what you want it to say and Justin or I will have it done ASAP. It would be done already if you wouldve specified what you wanted it to say right off the bat. :roll:

While were on the subject, anyone else wanna make some changes? Dave, youve done a little bit of work lately any specifics youd like to change (besides everything)?

not yet, I think it needs at least paint and the bed finished before I get some new picks and the only spec change is the extra doors and 3" body lift. I have got to say this too. the headlight DOT spec says 54" off the ground and I am asitting right at 54" with the 37's and the top of the cab is somewhere about 7' 4"

I assume thats 54" to the center of the headlamp, where the actual bulb is? What about bumper and frame heights? Im not sure what the laws are but seems like something to think about. You have plans to try and lower it at all and cut fenders as necessary or leave it as is?

as it sits right now its legal by frame height body height and headlight height. CA doesn't regulate bumper height ( thank god ). where I am breaking the law right now is off road lights and fog lights. Basically every light I have added has to be covered on road and I just havn't got around to it. the other grey thing is mud flaps and fender flares. I have thoughts of lowering it but unless it proves to be very tippy then it will stay as is. I have to admit I am having fantisies or doing this again but starting with a turbo 7.3 diesel f350 crew cab and just move the axle forward.

Ive been meaning forever to try and get a copy of the CA vehicle code so I could look up all this shit. Off-road lights not being covered is just a fix it ticket though so thats no big deal. Bumper and frame heights could lead to serious legal issues in the event of an accident. Im surprised theres no frame height regulation seems like a safety thing that CA would definetly push.

Here's the link to the vehicle code on the CA DMV website. There's no really good index it's sorted by letters so it looks like you will be sifting through a bit of information if you really want to know.

there is a frame height limitation but its by weight. bumpers are the one that surprises me since the back of a semi trailer has a DOT bumper on it. if it wasn't regulated the first thing you'd hit on a big trailer would be the tires. I actually sifted through the CA codes before I started lifting the truck because I wanted to stay legal. I went to the CHP site to find the regs and actually read through a lot of the code just to see what was legal.

Miscellaneous: My trucks name is "Mama Cass". She's a big girl but light on her feet.
Future modifications: SAG pump, shackle flip rear, ignition upgrade, cut the rear quarter panels, move the sub into the side of the bed and lift the gas tank up into the bed and away from the rocks. Should be done by easter '09.
Worst off-road incident: At carnegie back in '01 I had gone over a little hill where recent rain had washed half of it away. It rolled right onto 2 wheels and luckily, I was able to panic and crank the wheel and slam the gas to keep it from going over on it's side. My power steering has leaked ever since. That same trip I found that I had a tilt steering wheel by accidently jumping a set of whoops. Now I know why they are called that.
Funniest off-road incident: At my first Hollister trip, I rode with Justin and when he passed out by the fire, Stan's girlfriend tickled his nose and he woke up violently kicking her and asking, "where's Danny?" Had to be there.
