Sorry Charlie, guess I should have put a smiley face on my comment, that was just a partial list of the stuff I carry on my Trooper, ALL THE TIME!! and recommend others do the same, there is also rain ponchos, sweat shirts, gloves and quite a bit more. You never know when you can help others or save your self.

Before I redid my front ball joints, I once had one fail. Broke completely off when I hit a ditch in the trail hard. I was about 10 miles in so It was a long walk back in the hot summer time. I happened to have a bolt in my bag of fasteners that was the same size an the stem on the ball joint. I removed the old joint and clamped the bolt into the clamp that holds the ball joint with the rest of the bolt loosely sticking up thru the hole in end of the a-frame. It got me back. I try to think of all the things that could go wrong and prepare for a fix for pretty much anything that is realistic. I carry a full set of metric sockets, open end and box wrenches, multi meter, along with many other tools including large stuff for tightening the large nut that holds the wheels on, which I also had to use once. I've since have changed the large nut to something better that can't come loose. I'll carry a full schematic, extra wire, fuses, matches, flash lite, along with water (10 gal.), dried food, little cook stove, sleeping bags, warm cloths, rain gear, first aid, back packs and so on. My wife and I will sometimes get maybe 30 miles into no mans land out in the desert and want to be able to hike out and survive 3 or 4 days to get out. If you ride where others regularly ride, you can get buy with less. Its all about picturing the potential situation and what you might be up against if something fails. In my case, I want to be able to fix a lot of things and If I can't, be able to hike out of trouble. I probably carry 200 pounds plus of repair and survival gear. If I go to the sand dunes or ride with others, I'll strip most all of it out.

      I found an 08 Renegade for sale and looking to purchase it.  I haven’t heard too much about these machines and any insight would be much appreciated.  Are they good machines?

      2016, Hisun 500 turns over great but Spark plug is firing when I turn the ignition key on. I’ve got good fuel pressure to the injector. Pulled plug out and it is wet with. gasoline. Air filter is clean. Turns over great just does not even try to pop or start.. I’ve checked off uses and they are good when I turn the key on I’m getting power to the injector.. I’m not hearing the injector pulsing, but may just be my hearing.. With the spark plug getting wet with gas I feel like the injector is pulsing and spraying. Any suggestions would be great. I don’t know the hours on the unit offhand, but it has 600 miles on it. Thank you for your comments and advanced.

      I realize that many of you do not have diesel machines.  For those that do, this is for you:
      Just wanted to post my experience this past week.  Here in Texas, we had pretty good dip in temps.  For 4 days it did not get above 25.  At night, it was single digits or close to it.  I always put Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer in the storage tank (30 gallon).  And up until this tank I was using Power Service (white bottle) for anti-gel.  Never had an issue.
      This tank, however, I switched to Stabil All season (anti gel).  It is supposed to good down to -40.  Zap.  That is a big fat lie.  I put in twice the amount called for in the instructions.  Result was less than optimal.  I drove the SxS 100 feet (to go get the mail) and it died.  I looked at the fuel bowl and it was a cloudy, wax substance.  So, the Stabil did not work.  That said, I'm not sure that I ever tested the Power Service in the same manner.  So I am not saying that one is better than the other.
      What are your experiences?  Are these products inferior?  What do you folks in the northern states / Canada use?  Am I missing something?

      Hi. I am looking to purchase a plow kit to fit my 2022 Axis 500. I have looked online but only found one place to get one.  Does anyone have any place I could look? Thank you for your help.
