  1. Time for a Change

    On the subject of the shoulder. I had the Delta reverse sholder replacement about 2-1/2 years ago on my right shoulder and no regrets! The only drawbacks are scratching you back, (or butt),limited amount of weight I can pu over my head, getting off the floor from a laying position. The pain level is a little rough for about 2 weeks. I will have the Left replaced as soon as I get a few more thing done around the house. Good luck!!
  2. Just a friendly reminder

    A friend of my once said, "If you keep a safe distance we would back our way out of Baton Rouge".

    Thanks for the heads up on the slider hitch. I don't follow others well. I've almost always found my on way. There's a few exceptions. I pick who I follow very carefully! I fell off a 50' oil tank when I was 19 following orders.
  4. 5th Wheel towing and States CDL Req

    I've eyeballed the car hauler hitches. Very impressive. Now you've got me thinking. Maybe a 9x2x1/4 rec tubing. Almost double the strength of 5/16 Channel. Easer to build the slider frame with rec tubing than Channel! I found a Holland slider frame,NWB,desigh I think would work for my slider Locks. I would like to talk for sure! I'll email you my#.

    Wrknrvr, I tried to post your pics but they would appear upside down. Not sure how to fix.

    Thanks for the pictures of your hitch and framework for the jeep. Your slider is a lot like what I want to do. This is the frame I'm thinking of building.i think it's a little long just not sure how much to counterleaver. The frame will be 9"x5/16 Channel. This is how I plan to attach the slider to the bed. The blue Cs are the slider riding on UHMW wear strips or similar. I'll have to build the pockets they slide in. Working an how to lock and unlock by air. Modified slider locks maybe. Big5er I would like your input on modifying the truck. I know I can make it safe, just concerned about legal!
  9. Wayne Lee here. I'm sure you saw my post on MDT "JK Nose up". Wanted to get your input on what I want to do.LEO's are my prime concern. I know each state is different. Just be gentle.

    After zooming I see the winch cable laying from the Jeep to the bed. I thought that might be a little steep a climb!!

    I went ti the test post section and found your post. I didn't see any pics of the hitch. I'm defiantly interested.Your setup is similar to what I'm trying to do but with a longer Jeep. Wasn't sure what I wanted to do with the ramps. I like your setup. If you have more detailed pics and don't mind sharing Email me at waynelee1354@gmail.com. Do you winch your Jeep up or drive it up?

    Thanks Chad for your response. And you too DollyTrolly. Were out of town for a week. I'm go ing to take you up on the weights and balances offer. As it sets now the front axle Weights 8030+\- 100 lb Bobtail, pulling 5th wheel or 28k equipment trailer. Currently the hitch is over the center of the axle. That will change. I went to a MDT in 99 because I was over working a 1ton. I don't won't to overload a truck. If we would ever go full time I would buy a HDT, but that ain't Gina happen I would go crazy or have to pull a work trailer behind the 5er so I would have something to do Cummins and Allison both rate the components at 80k. Like I said before I can handle slowing down on the hills. A little more about the truck. Air brakes, suspension, seats and CrewCab. A week or so back my wife's Postal LLV broke down and she had to ride in a MDT wrecker and she now appreciate air ride.

    One more thing about upfitters. When a HD singles do they have to get recertification ?
  14. JK nose up

    That's what I'm looking for is constructive input. Like the upfitter. I know it would be slower on the grades. I'll be adding about 6500 pounds. It's not a Sport Chassis. We will never go full time. It would be used for 2 good trips a year. 1 East, 1 West.

    I have a 10K front and a 18K rear axle now. The 106 can be ordered with a GVR rating of 54K +. I have the 187" wheelbase to, but I'm going to get it stretched and add a 13K tag axle.
