  1. I looked at one of those. But found a used Trailer saver only used 3 times close to me. So for $800. I got a almost new hitch with a built in air compressor on it also.
  2. Buddy of mine that runs his own diesel shop. Even though he has a mag drill. He only uses a pilot hole then reamer. Tells me its faster and less work to set up. He's good at his job. So I'm taking his word at this. Also he had to drill holes a few times per week. But I'm going to borrow his mag drill. LOL
  3. Was this one of the 2 hitches they sold as Test models? Thus no warranty on these? Just asking.
  4. Great thing about a 13 speed. Drive it as a 8 speed, and flip the switch when you need to drop half a gear going up a big grade. Wish mine had a 13, then this 10 direct. but then again 10 direct with 2.93 gears not bad.

    Tires

    Look and see if your tires can be re-grooved? Most can and if your only issue is traction. A few hours with a grooving iron. And you can add 3/32 or so to the tires you have. I picked up one years ago on Ebay. Had to order new blades last week. Been re-grooving tires for years. Buddy of mine has 250 Peterbilts. All his tires drives and trailer. Get new life cut into them. And no increase of blowouts. And let me say now. Your going to hear from both sides on this. Many will say its not good. But as long as done right. Its giving you extra miles out of tires. And like my buddy. He is n
  6. We left our 9.5' Okanagan 811SL for a 41ft 5th wheel. Man I wish I had my truck camper back. Love the space in the 5th wheel. But like your talking about park anywhere. I could park along streets and never be bothered. Because everyone sees the truck camper. As part of the truck, ours did stick out the back of the bed 3ft. But fit in 99% of the parking spots, just left the 8ft slide in and not out. We sold ours, because both of us were having issues getting into and out of bed. If it had not been for that. This 2012 Heartland Landmark would be gone today. I keep thinking about a triple si
  7. Seen one try to get air born Friday evening. I was running 70 MPH in my old 97 TJ jeep . When this smart car came by. He hit the hump at the river bridge and looked like he got air. Did not know one could run that fast. I know the 4 Hamsters in the 2.5 Jeep was working.
  8. 100% true, I have heard people talk about the good old days. I lived though some of those good old days. And will take now over, no ac, and old tractors and a John Deere 40 Combine. Those were good old days. The last day I had to work on that combine was for sure a good old day.
  9. Enjoy the truck and the playing, I mean work your going to do on it.
  10. Ran a tri-axle dump truck grossing 74,000 lbs with a Ag100. I will say it was fun dumping. But ran that truck 7 months never even got close to laying it over. And standing a 16ft dump bed up on soft ground. Well it sure makes for a fun week. But it would in no way be my choice for a dump truck.
  11. The old Ag100 8 bag would follow the ground with a load. Also most added the big air line kit to most of those also. Even coming out of a field, hauling grain. That Ag100 would come out where others could not.
  12. We plan on making 2022 for sure.
  13. Wish my 10 speed Direct was a 13 speed. But then again the 2.93 gears would make for a high speed chicken truck.
  14. I opened my mouth last weekend. Should have thought before I spoke. My Step Son now owns my 89 Bronco. But I did not drive it that much anymore. But sure have sellers remorse.
  15. You have to watch those old Bronco's. I have a 1989 Eddie Bauer 83,000 miles on it.
