    Highway 299 or Highway 36 ? ?

    My advice, take 299. Do not take 36. I have pulled 299 quite a few times with a 42 ft 5th. . The roads do not compare.

    2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon For Sale - Sold

    As is the case with everything Chad owns , the Jeep is pristine. i didn’t realize there was this many accessories on it including the complete towed set up. That is a great price as equipped. Are you sure you want to sell? Just kidding, good luck with the sale.

    2018 West Coast Rally

    I have attended two of the WCR’s and I do not have a HDT. I was warmly greeted and have made some long term friends. The amount of knowledge and accommodation was fantastic. We took rides in trucks and got a general idea of the workings of these “Beasts”. I would highly recommend a visit to the event. These are great folks and are very helpful. My only hesitation in buying a truck now is that I am currently a California resident and don’t want to deal with the rules and Regulations of this state. Go to the event and enjoy!

    I have seen and ridden in Larry’s Truck also. It is pristine and not even broken in. The bed is fantastic. A great deal! Life has changes for all if us, Cheryl and I hope to meet up with you again in the future.

    GM to bring back MDT’s

    I just read some of the Work Truck show in Indianapolis and reports confirm GM is indeed producing a line of MDT’s. Lots of nice features but the big one for me and a deal killer is that they are detrating the DuraMax to 350/700. Back to the drawing board for me. Maybe a Big Boy Truck in my future.

    GM to bring back MDT’s

    I really don’t care what 10 year old trucks did or how they performed. I am talking about a possible new truck that none of us know anything about until later this week. I don’t want a little car on a big truck to unload. You didn’t want a 5500, great, now we are even. Let’s wait until the specs are out.

    GM to bring back MDT’s

    Glenn, the class 4 &5 trucks from Ford and Ram are derated also. They derate for the commercial application. I don’t like that and have tried to get around it and that is a non starter with the manufacturer. By the way the class 4 & 5 truck market is growing according to the commercial sales figures. Maybe that is why GM wants back in. If GM provides the consumer motor in Class 4 or 5 and it rides acceptably, or can be made to ride well like the Kelderman suspension it is a viable choice for heavy RV’s. You don’t have to agree but please be respectful of others opinions. Not everyone wants an HDT like you have.

    I’m glad you are happy with your HDT’s. I have a few friends I camp with that have them and they are impressive. If I didn’t live in California I would consider one. I still think this is great news for the RV community. It gives other options to Ram and Ford.

    GM to bring back MDT’s

    Why is it a shame? My last two duramax engines were more than enough power and durability. As an RV’er I want the horsepower and torque the new motor produces. I am just looking for more reserve weight carrying capacity. My current dually is the perfect truck for me. It rides great empty or loaded, great mileage, super reliable and the interior amenities are fantastic. Just would like more GVW in a pickup configuration.

    I may be behind the curve on this info but this is really exciting for me. I have been a GM guy since drag racing in the 70’s. 3 days befor the unveiling. If they don’t derate the engine too much this is probably the way I will go. http://gmauthority.com/blog/gm/chevrolet/silverado/2019-chevrolet-silverado/2019-chevrolet-silverado-medium-duty-trucks/2019-chevrolet-silverado-4500/

    SOLD - Magnum 2812 inverter and accessories

    My 2812 in a 2015 DRV manufactured in late 2014 works perfectly with my PT100. The only change required was the ARC-50 needed to be installed. Possibly your friends 2812 was sitting on a shelf for a long time.
