In spite of living in the desert, I've seen enough flooding around this area a couple of times that we've not been able to leave our small town for a couple of days. We've had 2" of rain in 20 minutes in a summer thunderstorm with lots of local damage. The hardest rain I've seen was officially called 4" of rain in 12 minutes. A woman drowned 1/4 mile from my house in that one. Those instances the water quickly subsided. We've had the front half of our attached garage flooded as much as 3" deep in water and lost some vintage car magazines and such in the garage. But flooding around here has never been anywhere near as severe as what Ed and his wife and neighbors are dealing with, nor like having our home washed away like cbeck describes.

Ed can you email or post your pictures of your beam build. I'm waiting for my adjusters to arive now then will start it. I'm doing a stock width, stock everything with rack mount and no shock mounts. Pretty simple and I think it will be easy just like all the reference photos before I start. I'm useing 2" .120 wall tubing and will be 34 1/4 long.

If you can find it I posted an off-road BJ beam w/adjusters build including a big mistake and noted it.

It is good to see STF is BACK.

I just got it RUNNING, not the best and setting codes but I could drive it right now if I could get it out of the shop! I came in the house to look up codes and found the forum working :D So looking at the codes I am wondering if I have some water in the harness causing some odd things but over all I am happy. It does sound like the idler pulleys for the cams may need changing and maybe the alternator as there is a bearing sound somewhere. I did have to change the computer out from my parts car but I will get another one when I hit a pick-n-pull. Now I need to work towards getting it out of the shop and that is not easy. The water broke through the sand bags by going under my gate and now there is a 4 foot deep hole under my gate and also a dead car in the way :(

A good day, STF and my car both start working at the same time :D :D

Thanks CWB, we are making progress. With enough letters to the Governor and mayor and many city counsel meetings we now have the flood gates to the river back on and working again so I now feel we are much safer from it happening again.
