Looks to be in good shape. I'd be interested what the underside looks like and the brand of the lift. You can see the tires aren't square. Price seems pretty fair.

Tire aren't square? Do you mean with the body? Is that a negative thing?

Yea big time. Had this ladder bar on before and the wrap issues went away. Then after taller springs, the ladder needed some re-engineering. Now need some testing out in the field.

Yeah they appear not to be centered in the wheel well. Not a negative thing, as long as the tires don't rub. Adjustable control arms are the fix. But it's not a big deal

FYI


Today the Cibola National Forest and Grasslands Supervisor, Elaine Kohrman, announced that the Sandia Ranger District is reopening at 8 am Tuesday, July 16. All roads, trails and picnic grounds are available for public use. The official order is linked here.

Also announced, effective immediately, Fire Danger Indices have been moved down from "very high" to "high". The continued monsoon rains have allowed the Fire Danger Rating to come down again. Welcome news.

We remind everyone that even though the Fire Danger Indices have come down, the forest and surrounding EM environment are still very dry. Please continue to be vigilant. Work on your preparation projects, and avoid doing any defensible space activities other than removal of grasses and duff around your home.

The onset of monsoon often brings lightning. Trees can smolder for many days before any evidence of active fire emerges. As we always say, "report it, don't ignore it".

Sincerely,
John Helmich
EMIFPA Community Education Outreach Coordinator

Fred might wanna check but I don't think the Cibola Natl. Forest is opening, only Sandia. Cedro is in the Cibola, I think...

CIBOLA is the geographical area forest, Sandia, Mt Taylor, Mountaineer are all Ranger Districts under the "Cibola".

this lifting of restrictions is for the Sandia Ranger District which includes Cedro peak
