  1. D - Ring location

    15,000 + miles towing Jeep like this. On a car trailer, gooseneck trailer and now on an HDT deck.
  2. Has this stunt happen to you ?

    With my 06 VNL, I can remove the keys from the ignition, clip them to my belt after I start the truck. I keep them on me whenever I am out of the truck, and I keep the truck locked at fuel stops. Do not want to reenter my truck and find a thief or a lot lizard taking up residence in the cab.

    In Slade Kentucky, heading out to wheel the Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway with friends.
  4. You never know who will pull in next to you....

    We will hit the Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway for two or three days then over to Windrock for a couple days than back to Balmy Florida for Thanksgiving dinner:). We liked Byrd's off road on the northwestern end of Arkansas. We hit another place near Hot Springs, but the name escapes me just now. I think it used to be called Superlift.
  5. You never know who will pull in next to you....

    We enjoyed meeting you and your daughter ( very impressive young lady) this weekend, wish we had more time to visit and share stories. We are heading out around 8:00 am for the Clermont KY area. spending the day at the Jim Beam Distillery on an "educational tour". Then heading to four wheel with friends, near Slade KY. Thanks for the warm welcome Shannon, we were glad to meet another set of HDTer's and to glean more info. Maybe someday our off-roading trips will line up and we can get a chance to wheel together as well. Have a great week, Michael and Noah

  8. Semi Confused -LOL get it semi Ha! Ha!

    Build the bumper pull hitch first. Super easy build, get a Jackalopee from Henry(He is brilliant, and offers great advice freely, thanks Henry:). Then go camping.
  9. Semi Confused -LOL get it semi Ha! Ha!

    Relax and drive, it is not a sports sedan, but it is just a truck. Save the $2500 toward the bed build. Drive using common sense, the truck weighs three times what my one ton weighs. I drive accordingly. No tailgating, slow turns, look ahead for trouble etc. These trucks will have parts available for decades. They have so many still on the road from the late 90's, there is no worry of discontinued parts. I owned the truck for 5 months, before I took my first 2500 mile vacation. So glad I bought it, so much safer easier to drive than my one ton. Get your hands dirty, and seek advice when attempting something new. Michael
  10. Bobtail mileage

    Jim, my Dodge 1 ton was getting 12-14 towing, 18-22 normal driving. Our Volvo seems to be doing 9-10 towing so far, but the slight decrease in mileage is more then paid for with the confidence I have in towing with the 780. Thank you again for sharing the HDT lifestyle with my wife and I, we will for ever be grateful. Michael and Licia

    Heading for TN and KY tomorrow afternoon with my adult son for some R&R and off-roading. We will be exploring the Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway near Slade Kentucky. We will also visit Wooly's off-road park near Lynnville Tennessee, and Windrock ORV near Oliver Springs TN. Then home to Florida in-time for Turkey Dinner:)
  12. Fluids for power steering
