    A '74 Blazer on 44's is obviously a terrible vehicle to take onto slick roads. Completely wrong tires and short wheelbase for snow and ice. Also compounding this is if you were running custom 1...

    Exactly. The Detroit is always locked. The outside wheel ratchets free when it goes faster than the inside and the input shaft. That's it. If you stomp on it and spin the inside tire, it'll...

    3 kids fit in the back of a Ford crew cab F250 just fine. Two adults and one kid is doable up front as well. I wouldn't overlook pickup trucks.

    It's fine. Even preferred.

    I'm running 295/70 r17 Cooper STT's on stock F350 XL wheels. (7.5"?) Just take it easy and test the setup carefully.

    Selectable.

    I love a Detroit locker rear, but up front I want an open diff or close to it, most of the time. Open, Truetrac, OX, or ARB for me up front.

    The Carli joints are listed at $800? I don't get it?

    But Carli has always been excellent stuff IMO. I've never been disappointed in any of their products. I hope to add one of their better...

    I recommend the 2010+ Ford F150's for your price range and light duty needs. Go for the cheap simple 4.6L. It's a bit cheaper used, and has plenty of power. The 5.0L is fine, just don't bother...

    The bigger your truck needs to be, the more you need a diesel. It's only when you're running:
    - huge lifts
    - giant tires
    - DRW
    - trailers all the time

    Then the diesel makes sense. Otherwise...

    All of the slippery off cambers I've been on, it didn't matter. We ended up slipping all over the place. Going up hill crooked like a crab.

    Detroit, ARB, open diffs. No difference, until the...

    I don't thing it's fair to compare a Raptor to a rattle can race truck or a prerunner that requires ear plugs to drive. Driving the Raptor down a bumpy dirty back road, is like driving a Mercedes...

    Tires are heavy. If you do go bigger and need to regear, go bigger than the 4:10 that the calculators recommend. That's the correct gear, but if you're going to spend serious $$$on gears, minus...

    Better tires. ARB locker. Square chains.

    Not much need for more than that in Florida.

    45 degree angle aluminum.

    A sheet of black fiberglass or black PVC would also work.

    Street use, small wimpy diamond pattern chains are preferred. Off road, I want super heavy duty square link ladder chains or V bar ladder chains. Diamond pattern chains break easier, and the side...

    Set to 30-32psi. Rotate like mad, every single oil change to mitigate the cupping on the front tires.

    7" is fine on 295/70 r17. Your 315's would likely be fine on a 7.5" wide wheel. Don't go wider than 8". Usually a thinner wheel will be way better offroad. But may be wishy washy onroad. ...

    Lead acid batteries, and name brand canned stuff, are the only thing I get at Napa anymore. Their brakes stink. Their battery sealant seems good now as well. It drys up, not gooey and messy...

    Those Camplites do seem nice. No wood rot is a nice touch. Piece of mind when it spends 90% of it's life parked in my backyard unused.

    I wonder what they'd do If we gave them an extra 1-2000...

    No worries. I'll bet that used AS was almost as pricey as a new regular TT. I've always just preferred regular TT's. Easier to repair, cheaper, and I don't get the draw of Airstreams like...

    Oh deer.

    Obviously we have different ideas of safe and comfortable. My E350 couldn't maneuver around the simplest of obstacles with a trailer like that behind it. Sure 1/2tons and vans can...
