How do I stretch the hero image (big pic to right of nav) so it fits the largest desktop size?  We got the animation to work good but that is only be on the home page.  

I played around with this on the below page:

You need to change your actual image width from 752px to 100% (height auto or 100%) then it will stretch to fit its container.. By giving it an actual px size it will never respond to its containing environment.
You may need to play around with the css for the hero as the image height will then be greater that your left hand menu and look a bit odd.

Cheers,

Would I change BOTH width and height to 100%?

You could although height auto will work as long as the width is set to 100%.

The nav works good for the slider animation.  If I change the css for the nav, then that won't look right.  It's like a catch-22.  fix one thing and the other goes bad.

I could have sworn I had this all working already...  
The side nav is not really normal set up.  To do what you want, we need to hide one version of the hero for larger screens and then switch out.  http://jsbin.com/koniximi/1/

Now it is a matter of getting the white background back when xs.

   <div id="xanimation_container" class="hidden-xs col-xs-12 col-sm-9 ihero">
        <img src="http://nsitedesigns.com/nsitedesigns/wiplastic_scott/img/pl4_2.jpg" class="img-responsive" /> 
      </div>
        <div class="visible-xs ihero">
        <img src="http://nsitedesigns.com/nsitedesigns/wiplastic_scott/img/pl4_2.jpg" class="img-responsive" /> 
      </div>
      
      <!-- end hero -->

Hi Scott,

I was working on getting the slider to work and that messed up the other code you provided.

What is happening is the .col- is adding left and right padding.  The solution I provided is an easy work around.  You could also use a media query and set the class ihero to padding:0px!important when below the xs threshold.  The way I have provide work within bootstrap.  Either way is good.
