    Hi all!! Thought I’d start here before searching eBay to see if anyone is selling a rear 18” rim for a DR350.
    Thanks!

    This might be an odd request, BUT I trust inmates more than random folks from Craigslist (yea low bar, I know). So here it goes...

    We have an AirBnB a couple of miles south of the top of Poncha Pass. We are looking for a few local house cleaners familiar with cleaning and turning over an AirBnB between guests. We'd like to get a few quotes on said work. So if you are, or know someone, in that area (Salida, Poncha Springs, BV, Villa Grove, etc) let me know! We're just looking for someone trustworthy and fair. Bonus points if said cleaner has some light repair/handy(wo)man/grounds-keeper skills.

    Let me know, thanks!

    Hi ADVers, I'm looking for a stock WR450F exhaust that will fit a 2005 model. Currently have a FMF Q4 and it's just too loud. Anyone have a take-off laying around??

    My sister-in-law lives in Leadville and does this kind of work in the Minturn/Vail/Copper Mtn/Breck area. I'll ask her this weekend if she's interested. I'll see her this weekend.

    Thanks! That’d be quite a drive for her, but if she’s willing let me know.

    Anybody in the Salida area have an old motorcycle battery that I can borrow to use on a mower until the one that I ordered comes in? It doesn't need to be very good.

    Anyone here good with differentials and want to make some money? I want to re-gear my 2018 Super Duty, and 1996 Bronco.

    I am pretty good mechanically; I never take my vehicles to a shop but I don't have to the tools or the experience to properly set up the gears.

    I am young and can help you or just do the work myself with your guidance.

    Failing that, any good shops you would recommend in Southern half of Colorado?

    It's often cheaper ,easier, and faster to just swap the entire axle assy for a used one that has the gears you want, and sell off the old one. Check car-part.com to see what's available.

    There is nothing available for what I want. I am going to a 4.56 in my truck and 4.88 in the Bronco. I can get good gear sets for them, Revolution gears made by Circle K in Korea, for like $500 for front and rear. I will also be replacing the open carrier with Detroit TruTracs while I'm in there.

    I know my axle guy charges about $500-$750 per axle including quality gears.
    After watching him do one it looks easy but like anything after you’ve done a few thousand you should be able to do it in your sleep.

    Any of you jerks got a Mototote, Versahaul or similar heavy duty hitch carrier you don’t want? I’m after one suitable for a 400+lb. street bike.

    I have another strange request of the front range elite ADV rider community. I need someone that would like a not too big project and make some money off of it.It involves cutting and welding metal. Auto Body experience would be nice but I don't think it is required. Without further adieu, I bought a 1960 Jeep CJ5 and need the driver fender well cut back so I can move the set back. It will involve cutting a piece out of the fender, cutting 4" off that piece and then welding it back in. Then filling the resulting hole with new metal.

    If you have any interest here is a video of exactly what I need done.

    I could probably do it but I don't have a brake, my welding skills are just OK, and it would take me months. :lol3
