I'll definitely second this - sand wheeling is way different. My rig is set up mostly for crawling, so the soft springs are tricky to get the hang of when going more than 25-30 in the sand. It's easy to bottom out in some of the dips - which happened a couple of times. Either way, it was a lot of fun, and it was cool to learn a little more about a new (to me) kind of wheeling.

I'm looking forward to seeing the vids you got on those GoPro's you had mounted!

Seats are squeaky, lol.

Also installed some new parts on the f250. NOS grille, bezels, and lower turn/parking lights. Then I waxed and sealed them all so they should stay good for a long time. Really like this look.

May do nos headlights but I don't mind the 1 piece clear ones either. They don't leave that ugly gap at the side like stock ones do.

Really cool video! I would like to go there some time. Is there no order there at all? Like when you charge up a hill, your flag is the only warning someone coming up the other side has? Seems kind of crowded for no rules. Are there some common sense rules people are given upon entering the area?

There are directional areas where the tallest hills are, so they are one way.
You do have to run a flag as well, which helps with visibility. Steering wheel it goes up front, bars it goes out back
Other then that, you need stickers, seat belts, roll bar if glass roof (or helmets), and for the exhaust to be under 98db and that's it pretty much.

I grew up out there with my father behind the wheel of a buggy so maybe I am used to the "organized Chaos" that is Silver Lake and don't think its as bad as it is. People do hit each other, people do flip their stuff, people do get life lined out of there in helicopters. All part of the fun to me. Crazy is trying to ride an ATV or dirtbike when its even busier then in my vids.

Also thanks.

New trans cooler and AN lines on the way for the F-250. No issues with current setup just putting bigger cooler in place and replacing nipple and clamp connections with nice AN style stuff.
The engine swap is on hold on the 78, Mustang trans decided that 5th gear was no longer happy. It is under warranty however the dealer is being hard to work with so I ended up pulling it myself.

well that was fun


Back to the 78 this weekend. First off will need to replace a front turn signal bulb socket that got messed up, and also change the oil as to see what it looks like after 2 trips to the dunes.
