    Colorado / Canyon bent frame

    From the above article: And it’s only the rare car company that makes any allowances for dirt roads; most prominently, Land Rover changes their maximum tow weights from 3500kg to just 1000kg when off-road.

    HUMMER H1 vs Silverado.

    I’m pretty sure I’d rather be in the Chevy, crumple zones exist for a reason.

    2000 Suburban K1500 budget low lift with 37"s

    No AFM on the HD 6.0’s. I just changed the exhaust manifold bolts on my L96, two were broken. Replaced them with stainless bolts with nickel anti-seize. Really not a hard job, about an hour for each bank taking my time and having a couple beers. Do you have the exhaust leak yet?

    2000 Suburban K1500 budget low lift with 37"s

    I want to cam my l96 6.0. It’s already got the the good intake and “LS3” style heads. The variable valve timing complicates things though.

    You can change the liners? Lol

    New trucks and 4low...

    One more reason to get a HD. Really though the only time I've ever used low range was towing heavy up a slow steep hill, or towing heavy over slow rough terrain. I've known 50 plus year old life long "truck guys" who don't know what it's for.

    Towing With Hardside Truck Camper

    I think rear axle weight rating is the number to worry about.

    2000 Suburban K1500 budget low lift with 37"s

    The parking brake on my 2500 only sometimes releases. One of the springs responsible for pulling the shoes back in broke and I haven’t gotten around to fixing it, you have to pull the axle and take off the hub with the full floater I think. Not looking forward to it.

    I bought a universal rear camera off etrailer and it only lasted a year.

    Maybe since truck manufacturers are leaning toward off road specific models they also need to list capacities for both on road and off road. IIRC U.S. military lists their specs for off road, payload and tow capacity.

    My new camper and truck ready for gnarly dirt roads

    Reminds me of my father in law. 17k lb horse trailer with a 2004 3/4ton. 4K over rated tow capacity.
