How are the old relics kept? I mean I could see people swagging stuff or whatever.
Curious
What do you mean by how are they kept? All this stuff is just laid out across the Desert. There is nothing stopping anybody from stealing or vandalizing anything. The remoteness is what keeps most people away.

Thanks for that. That’s what I hoped, that it would be part of natural landscape. And by “kept” I mean in place by the area or property it was there being used on.
Thanks.

Lenghtened some new sway bar links and installed. Old ones were pretty toasty. Going out to wheel and explore tomorrow morning.

Sway bar links worked as intended. Found a few mines today and came across several rattlers (did not get pix of them). All in all still a good day.

Spent the long weekend building some sliders for my friends 100 and a set for my LX. They are made from 1 3/4" .120 wall dom tube. They mount to 4'' x 5'' plates welded to the frame. I am pretty happy with the end result. Just need to paint them now.

Took a cruise up to Payson to escape the heat yesterday. Hiked Horton Springs then cruised across the 300 road from the east end at 260 to the west end at the 87. Good times. Lowest temp I saw cruising across the 300 road was 77 degrees. :grinpimp:

Thanks to MUD, I had all the info and parts for this quick fix. Swapped out the defunct AHC switch for this little cubby. Nice and easy.

I took a cruise out to the Old Dominion Mine Park in Globe. It's an old mine site that they have turned into a park. Lots of stuff to see and the high temp was like 82 when I was there. 🙂
