Open Trail Rides / Re: Limestone Mountain - Family Ride - Sunday Aug 20th
« Last post by slanktapper on August 15, 2017, 11:58:16 AM »
Robbie you'll be fine!  I'm in a stock Lift Rubicon too! Family rides tend to be geared towards passengers enjoyment.  More of "We'll take this trail cause we can stop at the end for photos/chill/a snack", and not like "Huh i wonder where this overgrown trail goes".  We'll still tackle some fun stuff but the trip is primarily to the summit of Limestone for the amazing views and the occasional interesting trail.

Hey, I would love to tag along.  I need to admit I am not a total NUBE but not a seasoned hard core off roader.  I also have a stock Rubicon. 

If you think I would not hold you up or slow you down, I would love the experience?

Other Stuff For Sale / Wanted / Curtis 80 Gallon Air Compressor
« Last post by fug on August 15, 2017, 10:11:43 AM »
80 Gallon Curtis 2 stage compressor. 220V wired with a dryer style plug. Good shape with light home shop usage. Model is 5E2VT8. Weight is 500lbs so you'll need a decent trailer or truck to move it.

This is an industrial compressor and far better quality than what you find at Canadian Tire or Princess Auto and will run pretty much anything you throw at it.   Kijiji ad is here

Compressor sells for well over 2k new and I'd like to see $1000 for it but am willing to trade for jeep stuff or even a smaller 110V compressor and cash.
Other Stuff For Sale / Wanted / Garage shelving
« Last post by fug on August 15, 2017, 10:01:11 AM »
Now that I am moved into a much smaller garage I have to purge a bunch of stuff. 

3 sets of plastic shelves in good shape.  Disassembled and ready to go.  2 of them match and are 6 feet tall, 3 feet wide and about 18 inches deep.  The other one is a bit shorter (5'6") but the same width and depth.

For those that are visually inclined there are a few crappy pics in my kijiji add here

I have them priced at $100 for all 3 on kijiji but would let them go for $60

You did it in the wrong order.... JK owners do lights, THEN lockers. Since you grabbed a Rubicon, you're already way ahead of the game.

Ignore the leprechaun. He's just jealous that you bought a Jeep instead of a frameless station wagon.
Other Stuff For Sale / Wanted / 2004 Yamaha Banshee LE
« Last post by slanktapper on August 14, 2017, 02:03:27 PM »

Selling my 2004 Limited Edition Banshee.

I bought this banshee last summer.
It’s set up to rip all over the mountains now (See setup below) I have, and will include, a spare set of domes if you’re going to travel with it.
Yes I have it setup to run 100LL AvGas (way cheaper than race gas but power wise the same), I was told it could run a 94 if you’re up at 4500ft (Waiporous / McLean), however I never had the chance to take it out there.
I have about 70 litres of 100LL AvGas you can have too, should last you 3-6 weekends depending on how much you ride.
(9L tank goes between 150-200kms depending how/where you ride)
However life had different plans and after the divorce I have no one to ride with / no time to ride.
Everyone always wants to know why you’re selling something so hopefully that cuts down on the questions…

What’s been done:
Professionally Bored and Honed +2mm over stock (369cc)
Wisco Forged Pro-lite Pistons
F.A.S.T. Branded “Noss Machine” cool head with 19cc Domes (Restores the bottom end that the altitude kills)
145 PSI (145/12.93 = 11:1 compression)
Also have 21cc Domes (Stock 23.3) (To Swap: Drain the coolant, pop the nuts off the head, swap the domes, reinstall head, re-add coolant)
Rebuilt carbs, Cleaned plus rebuild kit.
Re-jetted for stage 2 (or whatever stock air box, open lid with aftermarket pipes is) balance performance with mud/dirt protection…
Tors Eliminated
FMF Gold Series Expansion Chambers with FMF Power core 2 Silencers
Brand New EK Quadra-X Ring Chain
Renthal handle bar

Always stored indoors.
Tires have 70+% of the tread left.
The seat has a rip at the back…
The rear end starts squeaking every now and then, I have the rear axle bearing kit but when I have the time to work on it, it doesn’t squeak anymore…
I have the OEM Yamaha Limited Edition stickers too for beside the tank, (not the ebay fakes, genuine Yamaha stickers)

No trades, Let me know if you have any questions, text or message me is best
Open Trail Rides / Limestone Mountain - Family Ride - Sunday Aug 20th
« Last post by slanktapper on August 14, 2017, 01:36:52 PM »
Friends are coming in from out of town and the plan was to do McLean Creek but it's looking doubtful that the fire ban will be lifted before this weekend.

So that pretty much leaves Limestone Mountain. Easy trail, with an amazing view.  A nice relaxed day, some moderate trails but overall all well cut and traveled trails.  Stopping for lunch on top of the mountain.

Meet up at the Shell in Airdrie at 830 leaving by 9am.
- 169 East Lake Crescent NE, Airdrie, AB T4A 2H7

Head out from there and probably be back around 5pm.

Count: 7 jeeps in, 6 maybes

Some testing from the sand dunes in Michigan


Not sure if that's legit testing or if that "testing/pre marketing showing off hype creation"

Hey, thanks for all of the advice/encouragement everyone.  Now all I need is for the off road ban to be lifted and I can actually use it.  Go figure that the weekend I get a new Rubicon all wheeling in southern Alberta is closed. 

The 2017 has LED headlights, and they are not too bad.  I am saving for a winch.... I think that will be my number one add on.
