  1. Fabricator came by today and gave me what I felt like was a great price (less than half the previous quote), but even more important he gave me piece of mind. The gentleman really knew his stuff and was a real pleasure to talk with. He is looking to work me in the first of June.
  2. Higher than giraffe poon if you ask me. The guy coming Friday is a friend of a friend and he works for a company modifying and fixing fire trucks. He does frame mods and repairs on big trucks almost daily.
  3. Mr. Cob assuming yours are the same here is a link to an online store that has them for $99 a piece. https://www.dansshopinc.com/shop/peterbilt-flexible-exhaust-mount/
  4. I believe these are the same as what Mr.Cob is dealing with. I bought 2 at my local dealer but can't remember the price.
  5. Just wanted to update the thread. Got a quote for $7500 from a local truck frame shop to extend frame and mount the hitch. Have a local fabricator coming by on Friday to give me a quote also.
  6. Got my frame cleaned up and painted and replaced the the air lines now it's time to get my hitch mounted. I have 16" of the hitch that would be captured by factory frame and 26.5" hanging past. Wanting to build a bed like @Broncohauler had on his KW. And planned to tie the portion of the hitch not in the frame into the bed. Looking for some advice and opinions. As always thank you very much. Here is a pic of what I'm working with. Well as soon as I figure out how to add it I will.
  7. I am fine to use a residential style small box and breakers correct? And my inverter has a lug on it that says to ground to the body and chassis. I feel like I read somewhere that this is a bad idea or is my inverter ok since it seems to be made for a.c. being wired to it.
  8. My inverter does have a built in transfer switch. I would only be using a generator to run the truck on 1 trip a year. I don't even plan to mount the generator on the truck. Just planning to throw it in the truck for that one trip. That's why I thought the easiest way was to just plug it into the 30amp rv plug I put in the side of the sleeper for the shore power inlet. The toy hauler has its own generator so no need to send any power to it.
  9. Hey guys it's been a while since I posted but I've been lurking. Had some family emergencies last year that brought working on the truck to a halt. I'm back at it now and after a talk with Henry at ET Hitch today I think I've figured out my hitch. Anybody on the fence about a hitch should give Henry a call. Super nice and knowledgeable guy. I am about to install my inverter and have a few things I'd like to run by y'all. First is I'm planning to run 4/0 from batteries to xantrex 1800hf inverter with a 250amp fuse on positive cable. Second I plan to add a 30amp plug on exterio
  10. I assumed not many people would want a 379exhd for an rv. I'm fine with the reduced turning radius I'm used to the trucks.
  11. Haven't bought the camper so don't have a pin box to compare to at the moment.
  12. I'm a welder so I have no issues with adding the frame extensions I'm just trying to keep from any major modifications in case we decide it isn't for us and I need to sell the truck to a commercial driver. These Pete's are pretty well sought after and I got a steal so I will stand to make good profit if I don't make any modifications that hender commercial use until we decide it is right for us.
  13. Thanks for the opinions and insight guys. I think I'll just bite the bullet and go with an et. Other question I have is most of the pictures I've seen have the hitch mounted in between the frame fails at the rear. Without stretching the rear frame I would have to go on top because of the shock mounts at the rear of the frame. Would this put my hitch too high? Is there a standard height for the plate on the hitch. And hall tall is the et hitch. Sorry for all the questions.
  14. Ok Thanks for the info. I had read not to use an air ride hitch and pin box together. I was just wondering if I could get away with using an air pin box and standard hitch to save money.
  15. Ok guys it's been a while since my last post but with spring here most my free time has been spent riding atv's. I haven't had time to install my inverer yet but I think I have everything I need. My next question is I have read a lot about hitches and I would like to buy an et hitch but I'm assuming the price is around 4k I can't find an actual price on the internet and haven't had time to call the guy. I was wondering what the benefits are to an et hitch vs a standard fifth wheel hitch and a air ride pin box. We are looking at two campers now. One is 37' with a gvwr of 13500 and the othe
