    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...

    Just need to make a sheet metal scoop to set under the light. They have them for windshield mounted Jeep lights, to get an idea of what we mean. Just make a couple of those, but larger.

    Oh, heck yeah. I hate my van. The guys that love the vans, have heavily modified, even 4x4 converted vans.

    Box stock, the Ford and Dodge vans are pure suicide. Those vans have no right on...

    And the olde 460 is dirt cheap to rebuild. I'd rebuild the engine and trans before any international trip.

    Super reliable engine. Just bring an extra ignition system. Get the alternator...

    We're leaving the TT in the US right? Then your just using the truck, right?

    I'm dyeing to see someone use a heavy duty ladder rack with a RTT. Might even be able to put the RTT over...

    A little bit. But Carli suspension has a fix for that. Besides, what does a stiff ride hurt? Nothing. It's all in our heads. Most of the newer trucks have thick heavy seats anyways. My XL...

    +1

    Go straight to a 1 ton truck, or the 3/4 ton version of the same truck. 1/2 tons and little SUV's just aren't meant to tow 25' trailers. Their tow rating is surely high enough to do so,...

    That stinks. Better make sure it's the pan and not the turbo line orings or the plugs in the heads. Those tend to leak. Get some degreaser and wash the engine good to find the leak for sure.

    I agree. I just think those trucks are limited on tire selection. That's all. But if i can put on wheels 8" wide and run 295/70r17 wheels, I'm fine with DRW trucks.

    I think you'll like the Dodge better than the GM's. Maybe not enough to go out and get a giant C tattoo or anything, but it's a step up IMO.

    We had a few 5500 regular cab flat bed GM's. They...

    That's sounds fine. The oil pressure guage won't read low from an overfill. But the bearings, rods, and fuel system, might notice. Should be fine. Cranks can whip oil up into an opague foam...

    Mitsubishi made faulty dip sticks for some of their V16 diesels.

    I saw an overfilled engine with a cracked oil pan. And this pan is a massive chunk of steel. The force of the crankshaft...

    Sure. But only where I don't want to drive anyways. And a Honda CRF450R will do back flips over a 'mog. So what's the point?

    Big difference between playing around on trails, and actually...
