    Those are really nice to pull! Nice combo. I’ve seen a few with Add a rooms for the dogs and cooking/eating area outside. Nice screened off. 👍🏼😀

    Front hitch on new truck

    ^^^ this is kind of what I’ve seen on a couple trucks here. They used a tow truck style female +/- plug mounted in the front and rear bumpers for winch and boosting power. Is this what your doing? 👍🏼

    Trailer Hitch?

    I’m sure he’ll upgrade the sway bars and put more air in the tires. Speaking of tires, are you going to a 10 ply?

    Trailer Hitch?

    I have a full set of door plugs for the old style truck mirrors. You’re gonna need to put some bigger extended mirrors on it.

    Dually hub cap for an 06

    I am amazed at how cheaply made and how expensive these are to replace. Even with an employee discount they’re North of $300 per corner for full replacement. I opted to go with no caps when hauling because they fly off or take some serious road rash. Could have had four of the aluminum wheels but only polished one side and not rotation friendly with steel inners.

    What tires do you like?

    I like round and black. If I’m not running 99.9% highway I’d consider BFG KO/2’s as well. For a pavement princess I can’t complain about the Kuhmos. Great on ice and mud as well as moderate snow.
  9. If I can make it, I’m down for smokin. I wont have a smoker but I’ll assist with my eleven different herbs and spices. most likely be back to work and unable to attend. Which isn’t a bad thing in the big picture
  10. I’ve used the guy in Abbotsford by suggestion of Dave Stroketeck 👍🏼

    Injectors question.

    I ran a custom F1 20HP set in my 07 6.7 for over 600K miles. Better idle, better economy, better power. And very clean. Big improvement over stock. Didn’t go higher HP as I was already running SW3 on a Smarty Was the perfect combo for my needs.

    I was wondering about that Dave.

    CR tuners- rail pressure

    I use tow/haul and the exhaust brake all the time Vaughn. I noticed similar when in normal mode...mushy soft shifting. The transmission would shift up sooner and drop the RPM’s how you’re describing. The shifts are smooth and crisp in tow/haul. I would also manual shift with the paddle when I was in the hills or pulling heavy in traffic. Lock the trans in the gear that worked best.

    weight dist hitch, what type?

    Etrailer has lots and may even be able to help with a replacement part for the one you have.

    Ultimate Callout Challenge

    That diesel drag racing and power building will never catch on. Thats what I heard way back around 1996. There are a few folks on here that probably heard the same thing hey Dave? lol

    CR tuners- rail pressure

    I ran a 68 in an 07 for 780,000 miles with well over 500K miles running on SW3 in a Smarty. Never touched that trans other than 60K miles fluid and filters. And never flushed it ever. Vaughn, you were in that truck. Long bed Mega. The 12 I had bought used had wonky shifting and I sold it after a year. No issues just had an offer that was good. The 16 had sort of a failure due to trans cooler leak. I’m ok with the 68. Have not driven or owned an Aisin only because it hasn’t been available when needing a truck. Dealers were sold out. Not sure I’ll own another diesel but I’d be ok with either auto. No more manual trans 19 and newer. I did hear thru the MOPAR folks that an 8spd auto is coming for the diesels Its supposed to be available now for the gas HD 19’s.

    Got moles?????

    Farmers here used to pay us to take the gopher population down. We had our lawn chairs umbrella and beer cooler set up this one time with our .22’s. Then we got to thinking maybe we could blow them out of the ground with some diesel and fertilizer/cow pies. 🙀 Holy flying dirt/parts and tremors Batman! After a few explosions, a tractor came over this hill. The farmer said he heard and felt the explosions at his barn. lol Then he looks around the field and sees all these craters and debris. Looks back at us and says; “I always wanted to till this pasture and grow crops here.” Thats all he said then left. We blew up more holes til the beer ran out.
