  1. Travis what truck are you hauling the camper with? My Arctic Fox is 8'11" and I tow a car trailer with it but need an extension to do so. I don't have a superhitch it's a Reese 2 1/2" extension and it's rated for more weight at 24" than my 02's factory hitch was without a extension. With the newer trucks all having 2 1/2" recievers a guy could add this extension on the cheap. It would open up a lot more options on trailer size. There are a lot of 9' campers out there. You know the RV show is going on this weekend at the Monroe fairgrounds. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  2. Nice! Ya gotta love great fuel economy and a fun drive! Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  3. Definitely rule out a boost leak first like the others said. Do you have gauges? Knowing what your boost is doing would be a huge help . Fuel and no air equals smoke. I worked on my neighbors Ford last week he told me he thought his turbo was shot because it was making a horrible noise and lost power. I told him Fords always make horrible noise [emoji1787] We went for a drive and I put it on my lift and started looking things over. I found a tear about an inch long in a lower intercooler boot. A new set of boots and he was good to go. He couldn't believe that a small tear like that could cause his problem. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  4. I would consider driving it the way it is for a while and see how you like it. If the 5 speed is not to your liking or the brakes don't cut it then swap them out for your stuff.
  5. Cary I am VERY happy for you!!!!!!!!! I know how much you hated loosing your truck. I hope this one serves you just as well as the last one did. Feel free to bring it by anytime I will be honored to check it out.
  6. Hey Cary I think I still have at least one hub cap for you. I see one is missing.
  7. In your picture you have 2 different types of weights. It appears to me the lower one is not the right fit for your wheel? Could be they are putting the wrong weight on and thats why its coming off? I am not a weight installer just guessing by what I see.
  8. Can't they use stick on weights on the inside of the wheel Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  9. I bought Terrys Chevelle off ebay from out of Ohio sight unseen. I paid a guy from a local restoration shop to check the car out for me. Paid in full before it shipped. I got what I paid for no surprises other than damage during shipping which after blowing a gasket beyond compair that got the cops brought to the shippers office and had me in cuffs for a period of time (not arrested) and that was corrected.

  10. Man I sure hope your good to go! I know how bad that feels to chase a problem that seems to never go away. Pretty frustrating just throwing parts at it hoping they will stick.
  11. Your transmission and rear end on that truck and your golden! Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  12. The disc brake rear end on your truck will bolt on Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  13. Boy we had a great summer but it sure left overnight!!!! It seems we went from 60 degree nights to 40 degree nights instantly. The wind is blowing the leaves off the trees and here comes the rain! I was planning to run over to the property and take the tractor to clean up the gravel in the parking area around the trailer but I am going to stay home and get some stuff done around here that has been put on the back burner as long as the rain will allow me to. I didn't get anywhere near what I had planned done this summer. I really wanted to get a small deck built off the upstairs slider I even have all the material to do so just couldn't find the time. Still have some siding to get up and the whole house to paint but I guess the good thing is it wont hurt the Hardie plank to stay primed for the winter. anymore with all the colors it comes in most people don't even paint it at all. Now that the weather will force me inside its time to start working on interior projects that need to be done to prepare the house for sale.
  14. Jesse's shop is called Pro finish and yes he is still in business (at least as far as I know)
  15. Enjoy the break from reality!!!!!!!!!!!! Mentoring troubled young people is some of the most satisfying work a guy can do. Good for you Steve!
  16. The wildhorse kit is just a bracket that helps stiffen the frame and support the steering box while allowing the use of a 3rd gen steering box. There are a multitude of steering boxes that could be used with this kit. The kit itself is not a factor just the choice of steering box and or pitman arm and lift and any other steering components that can change steering geometry.
  17. The red X's are perk holes locations so the inspectors can find them easier. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  18. I have been asked by a few people how to find my property. I have an address but it's not in the system yet. I guess it takes a while but the county said police fire and postal services are notified immediately. So here is a picture of my onX hunt app with my property outlined and the GPS coordinates So it can be looked up on Google earth. Be aware that Google earth doesn't care much about this area. My neighbors house was built 5 years ago and does not show up. They don't update much in these parts. I like that! Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
  19. Everything at my place is buried. They have buried aluminum along the road now and will have aluminum up to the transformer. They hook up to the meter from the transformer when they connect, that is all their responsibility. I am responsible for everything on my side of the meter. It will only be about a 10ft run from the transformer to the meter.
  20. Cary if you find the right truck for the right money you have a known good rebuilt 6 speed now and all the associated hardware. Doing a 6 speed swap is not that big of a deal and you would have the piece of mind knowing your good transmission was in there. For that matter swapping your disc brake rear end is also not a big deal if you find a drum brake truck or one with a lot of miles on it. Just something to think about.
  21. Up here a 250ft well is going to cost you roughly 15k-20k the minimum cost is 5k if they hit water at 6ft still 5k Power will vary as wildly as the well. If you have to put in poles and run power a long distance be ready tp pay for it. I have buried power on the road and its going to cost roughly 7k to bring it to my property and put in a transformer about 10ft from my meter pedestal which I have to install myself. Yes a 400 amp metered service split after the meter. As far as septic goes you can dig your own perk holes have them inspected and design and install your own septic so if your willing to put in the work you can save a ton of money. To have it done also varies wildly depending on the type of ground and cost of materials. From a cheap gravity system to a high pressure mound with sand filters the cost can soar. A very rough ballpark estimate to do water, power and septic without and major issues would be in the $40,000 to $60,000 range.
  22. Man I have played that get the rotors off game with an 02 that was used as a commuter over the I-90 pass regularly. The deicer they use really made a mess of the underside of that truck!!! Unfortunately I couldnt figure out a way to use a jack to press them out. Shawn do you want me to go see if the flatbed place up here has a bed that would work for you?
