Thanks. I believe the windshield is the largest in the RV industry, 55x78 inches, especially in a 25 foot coach. You want glass coverage with this one. It's about $4000 for replacement installed.
That's huge windshield, you may also want a coat of Rain-X so those bug just spray off, but then it may already be coated.

Does anyone else have any other projects you're working on until your Bronco Raptor gets all your attention?

I will kick it off with my most recent project. I picked up a 2021 Yamaha YXZ1000R SS SE to hot rod. My town is SXS friendly so we can drive them on the street and straight to off-road trails. I love having a high-performance sports car, but our roads are pretty rough from snow plows and our average speed limit is 30 mph. So I decided to build a SXS rally car that would be as fun on-road as it is off-road! The YXZ1000R is a great platform for this because they were built to be short-course race cars. They have a high-revving (10,000 rpm) 1000cc engine, a 5-speed sequential transmission (not a CVT like most of the other SXS), and they are lightweight compared to other SXS. So they are a lot more visceral and much more engaging to drive.

Here's my modification list so far:

Weller Racing WR Edition Turbo Kit
JTE Boostlok Kit
Billet Racing Products side mirrors
Ryco Motorsports turn signal kit

I like how you bring all your toys with you when you travel. That's definitely the way to do it!

Gotta get some new tires on the boss.. and have to change the oil on the toy.View attachment 1168View attachment 1169
the B302 is such a good car. I miss mine. I had a PW (Performance White for the uninitiated ;-)) '12, bought it new, nicely modded...did 30k awesome miles in it before having to sell it to get in the GT350R...just didn't have the space / money / time / energy for two stands at the time. I don't regret going to the Shelby but do wish I still had my B302.
The SxS really interests me...wish I lived in an area where one could be used more extensively to justify owning one.

Prepping for a 3-4 week roadtrip...leaving tomorrow. Anchored on a family reunion in MI and visiting family in IN...have one of my bikes, hiking stuff, river tubes, and a folding kayak (Oru) so I'm ready for whatever little adventures come my way. Going northerly on the way out (ID / WY / Dakotas / up into Canada and down) and more southerly on the way back (where I spend most of my solo get-away trips). I picked up a new-to-me (lightly used off of CL) Autohome Columbus tent RTT...the build quality on it is really impressive!

Nice setup! Sounds like you're ready for a lot of fun. Have a great trip and hopefully, your Bronco Raptor shows up shortly after you get home.

I tend to mess around with some simple engine Yamaha Zumas. A couple of them both stock that I like to run around in (1998 & 2008) and then I have a 2004 with 70cc BBK and a few other mods that I have to tinker with. Keeps me busy and easy for around town!

My idle hands led me to the dark side! I picked up a Ram TRX to help me pass the time...

Your Spoiled! :giggle: You have probably been listening to each spray of premium gas being perfectly ignited and compressed to orchestrate a perfect symphony.

I know because I attentively listen to my neighbors Hellcats

Congrats!!!

Those sound like fun! I always wanted to hot rod some old Vespa scooters. I've seen some people make those old vintage scooters rip!

Indeed I have! The family has enjoyed it as well. It has a very nice interior and the suspension makes our rough roads a lot more enjoyable.

Sounds like a Fun trip and a great vehicle for it, safe travels, and I'll be waving if I see your Raptor in Michigan.
