  1. I redid the stringers on mine, encased them in fiberglass and installed a built in tank in between the main stringers so I no longer had the loose carry on tanks, replaced the floor and covered with thin fiberglass then used expanding foam to fill all voids under the floor. Probably added some weight but easy to clean and no fuel tanks sliding around or taking up space. I think the fuel tank I installed was over 20 gallons so replaced 4 carry on tanks. It also slightly lowered and centered the CG so increased stability.
  2. My first boat was a Mutiny with a 85 Merc. Loved that little boat but the motor finally lost ignition and burnt some wires so I upgraded to the 2052.
  3. Nice truck, My daughter and SIL live in Clearfield so they are pretty close to you. He is the one that bought Old Blue.
  4. Yup I have an adapter for a trailer or if you have a goose neck hitch then I have the comapnion 5th wheel hitch for it. I am just over in Covington
  5. Yup, no burn on DRW trucks, just the size and weight of the camper you want, and the $$$$ you have availble to spend, will dictate the truck you need. With a simpler 10.5' camper with no slide a SRW works great but if you step up to the fancy 12' with slides etc. then a DRW is the way to go. The fantastic rig he bought is definitely in the dually category. If you have a SRW and stay with the slighter smaller no slide camper then you can save money on both the camper and not having to upgrade the truck.
  6. I have never had any issues with a 10.5 foot camper and trailer for livestock and a bunch of goats or 21 foot boat with my SRW F350 with either air bags or now just the extended bump stops. My wife and girls would take cross country trips for goat shows with no misgivings but I can see with some of the bigger fancy campers it might be an issue.
  7. On the other hand...if it fails and eats the diff.... it will give him the excuse to get a Detroit Truetrac or locker installed......
  8. Well the daughter just texted me that he and the mech friend just finished and went for a drive so it is what it is...
  9. Too late for that they already rattled it off.. I don't know why but he does not seem to want to check with this site before he does stuff. My input is not always welcome either but I try...
  10. The son in law in SLC is doing this with a friend tonight. Hope they get it right. The friend is supposed to be a mechanic of some sort. He spun it off with air drive but was talking about torquing it on. Guess I will have to check with him when they get back from a weekend camping trip.
  11. Old blue needs new rear diff seal. How hard is it to do and best process?
  12. Years ago, my brother sand blasted his calipers and even though he taped and plugged everything off, the pistons still seized and he caught one of his front hub on fire. the disk was glowing red.......with the grease seal and grease burning nicely...😲... yes he knew it was dragging but decided he could get the last few miles home...... Hopefully you will not have that issue.
