This usually includes things like my Rock Hammers (I am a geologist), hiking boots, jugs of water, my daypack, and that sort of thing. As you can see there is still lots of room between the tubs and the door which usually gets used for rocks (in my case) or other miscellaneous items I want in easy reach. rockhopjohn Wed, 29 Oct 2008 18:56:10 -0400 Clothes and Food are next. <a href="" target="_blank"><img title="9672camping_clothesandfood.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="9672camping_clothesandfood.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: rockhopjohn<br /><br />Description: The last tubs I put in are those for my clothes and food.

They are heavy, so I like to have them more forward, and I also hope that I don't have to use them, so it is OK if they are buried a little bit. rockhopjohn Wed, 29 Oct 2008 18:52:28 -0400 Large tub of Camping Gear <a href="" target="_blank"><img title="9672camping_campinggear.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="9672camping_campinggear.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: rockhopjohn<br /><br />Description: This is usually the first tub to go in, since it is the largest.

This usually includes a couple of folding camp chairs, a camp axe, my hiking poles, and anything else that I don't need to get to that often that fits well. rockhopjohn Wed, 29 Oct 2008 18:49:39 -0400 2002 DR-Z400E my newest steed <a href="" target="_blank"><img title="9672drz400e.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="9672drz400e.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: rockhopjohn<br /><br />Description: Well, I went off my meds again and ended up buying another bike. This one is going to be an upgrade to my old Yamaha XT 350. Problem is I am starting to run out of space in the Garage. This bike is a real animal, this is the offroad version of the bike that has been modified to be street legal, so it has a more aggressive suspension, hotter cams and bigger carbs. It is supposed to be making about 45 HP, compared to the 18 my XT 350 had. Should be loads of fun.<br /><br />4 comments rockhopjohn Mon, 13 Oct 2008 17:38:09 -0400 2006 Baja Alloys on my Outback <a href="" target="_blank"><img title="9672outback_baja_rims.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="9672outback_baja_rims.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: rockhopjohn<br /><br />Description: I picked up a pretty clean set of alloys (a lot cleaner than mine!) off a 2006 Baja for $160.

These nuts are actually on studs that go into the differential housing, if you find that the nuts are seized, and all you can do is back the stud out, then back one stud out, and get the nut unseized from that stud, put that stud back in, and do the same on the other side, this avoids the risk of rear diff dropping down.<br /><br />1 comment rockhopjohn Fri, 01 Sep 2006 21:12:10 -0400 View of the mounted plate <a href="" target="_blank"><img title="9672skid_rearmounted.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="9672skid_rearmounted.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: rockhopjohn<br /><br />Description: Here is the plate mounted. rockhopjohn Fri, 01 Sep 2006 21:09:25 -0400 View of rear mounting points; plate mounted. <a href="" target="_blank"><img title="9672skid_rear.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="9672skid_rear.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: rockhopjohn<br /><br />Description: Here is a view of the rear mounting points after the plate has been mounted. rockhopjohn Fri, 01 Sep 2006 21:08:50 -0400 Front mounting point for rear skid plate <a href="" target="_blank"><img title="9672skid_frontmountingnuts.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="9672skid_frontmountingnuts.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: rockhopjohn<br /><br />Description: This is the front mounting point for the rear skid plate, these nuts will be tight, but should come off easily. rockhopjohn Fri, 01 Sep 2006 21:07:42 -0400 Front of the rear skid plate when mounted <a href="" target="_blank"><img title="9672skid_frontmounted.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="9672skid_frontmounted.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: rockhopjohn<br /><br />Description: Here is the way the front of the rear skid plate looks when mounted. rockhopjohn Fri, 01 Sep 2006 21:06:35 -0400 Skid Plate from Passenget side <a href="" target="_blank"><img title="9672skid_angle.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="9672skid_angle.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: rockhopjohn<br /><br />Description: Here is a view of the skid plate from the passenger side of the car.<br /><br />3 comments rockhopjohn Wed, 30 Aug 2006 21:30:32 -0400
