hi - do you have a picture of the saddle bags open, so one can see the actuator and how it is hooked on to the lock?
thanks

painless performance. but i can't decide one  250 amp alternator or dual 250amp alternator from ohio generators.

besides have the additional power for the beach or tailgate partys, i would like to be able to provide power for my house in case of blackout.

Hey there!

GTG's are great places to meet fellow AV owners.  I would find it really hard to believe someone would actually charge you to help you or do a mod for you.  We all love our AV's and willing to help out other fellow Av'rs with their mods also.

You just have to make sure that you have the supplies needed for the install and I can be almost positive that someone there will know what to do.

We got at least 3 hole saws in attendance, so it should be easy.  Where are you looking to put them?

Hey Shan,

I'll help you out with your strobes, if you help me out with the torsion keys and rear springs.? ?:D

I've decided to lower the AV 3" all around.

Oh yeah,  I can get you 6 strobe kit 60 watt for $180 or 90 watt for $210.  It's not whelen, but it's whelen compatible.  It's the same strobe kit i have.  The 90 watt one.  Let me know if your interested.

Thanks bonesaw.

I just have to figure out where I can come up with $200 to buy the springs and shock relocators now.    10 days away and I have no idea where that money is coming from yet.

Doesn't look good for that.    :E:
