Mildly touched that it comes up at rallies. Kinda creepy it comes up on phone calls. What kind of phone calls are you having? Some people find it funny some don't. I guess that is a pitfall of a public forum. Half the time the board is dead and it breaks up the day when nothing is going on but then again I could be wrong and just feel self important.

As for Jason, it is funny because he sent me a PM about the thread and how people jumped on him for nothing and how it was absurd. We talked and I think I set him in the right direction and he was grateful.

I have no stereotypes about the Carolinas. I go every year to Asheville North Carolina. I love it down there like a brother inappropriately loves a sister.

You should use the search function to see if we can get along.

FFS... Yes people should try to search -- but what's the point of a message board if all we do is search? Might as well shut the board down and just use Google.

Also, there are newer people with different experience who may not have posted details of their solution before. This feels very much like DWeeb and Pirate -- "SEARCH ASSH*LE" is the default answer to everything.

Below are a couple pics showing the homebrew on my RRC. It was made from square tube, basically just a big "T" with a triangular plate of 1/4" welded to the join of the T for stiffness. The axle of the trailer hub was welded to a bracket that was welded to the bumper.

I am not one to always use "google" or the search functions. Over time technology and opinions change.

For an example hit this link: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=rovers+out+east and we will be reminded of a thread on this forum. I am not saying I agree or disagree with that discussion but when you search and find info it might not be true.

I think the time factor is important. Some subjects were discussed deeply but after a couple of years new feedbacks can be given.
