    Project: Blanco, The 2007 F350 Standard Cab Adventure Truck

    I bought mine , 04 v10, 6 speed, supercab ,shortbed, stock 265/75/16 tires, in Salem Oregon and drove over 500 miles home mostly on I-5 and some backroads and got about 16.5 mpg.

    Project: Doitall Dodge

    I had an 02 f350 7.3 with an automatic. Sold it 3 years ago for good money. I don't have to drive much , no commute, only for fun. The 04 truck seems to drive better than the 02, maybe it's less weight on the front end.

    It's hard finding a manual trans. truck. I was looking for a truck just like that but ended up finding an 04 supercab, shortbed, v10, 6 speed last month. Drove over 500 miles to Oregon to get it.

    I think the same thing when I see those huge 15 ton trucks from Europe in the U.S. camped at a Walmart. They can't go anywhere offroad.

    For traveling weeks or months what would you suggest ? Some people want to stand up, have a real shower and bathroom and be able to cook inside. In the U.S. you have to go out of your way to go off road, most travel is either paved roads or graded dirt roads. There is no magical rubicon trail...

    ¿What tire size do you wish existed? But does not.

    I would like a 255/85/16 with a mild all terrain tread like a yokahama geolander or michelin ltx. A 265/85/16 would be even better.

    I watched episode one. It was fine. I was expecting lots of phony , "how wonderful our lives are" and product placement. Hopefully it won't go the way of most "Vanlife" channels and go over the top cheesy.

    I had some Yokahama GO15 all terrains on my van. Smooth, quiet and work good in snow.
