  1. I think tire reviews are very misleading. They always give the review when tires are new. Reviews on tires should be made when you replace them not when you buy them. I always say you get what you pay for.
  2. It's still a dumb idea no matter Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  3. Few million? Lot more than that in 15 years. California population will be near 50 million in 2035. They can't put out fires . How do they plan on charging all these cars with rolling blackouts? " Um , boss, I can't come to work today because my power is out and my tesla has a dead battery".
  4. I also had a buddy in high school that took a 68 Chev K10 and used a frame from another K 10 and stacked the frames on top of each other for a low buck lift . 38" Gumbo Monster Mudders. It weighed 30 tons and got stuck everywhere it went. I was a P.O.S. and looked like it was built by dumb asses. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  5. Nothing money can't fix. This one is nice...... https://www.ebay.com/itm/274472453540 I've always been a fan of the El camino. A buddy had a 69 with a 396 and it would roast the tires on demand. He also had a 1960 he made into a lifted 4 wheel drive. It was pretty cool. This was back in the eighties when guys were putting Vega bodys on Bronco frames. And station wagons on pickup frames.

[quote post="2459988" timestamp="1600895079" name="TXGREEK" I’m more worried about the old downtown parking garages Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I'm more worried about getting my truck and trailer through the drive thru at Dunkin' [emoji1][emoji507] [emoji2957][emoji2957] Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  7. I hear what you are saying Greek. I towed my 25' travel trailer with 500 lbs gear ( 5500 lbs total) with mine and I'll probably never do it again. I use my stock double cab for towing that but I thought I would try it with the lifted truck. I didnt have a w/d hitch either just my 13" drop hitch so it was never over 55 mph. It did tow it and stopped no problem but it was on or over the edge of what it is limited to tow now. It was in 4 the gear almost the whole 100 mile trip . The Borla catback was sounding killer echoing off the front of the trailer though. [emoji123] But my little 6x12 loaded to max at 3000lbs. cargo trailer is way easier to tow in comparison. The Borla sounds a little different ( quieter) I think because of the v nose. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  8. I tow a similar weight travel trailer. Some tips. Make sure your tongue weight is at least 12% of the trailer weight. It sounds like you are too light on the tongue. When you set up your hitch make the truck and trailer dead level. Get some better tires on the truck. LT tires are better than P rated tires for towing. That's a fact. Don't be in a race to get there. I see guys in diesels towing a 36 foot travel trailer going 75+ mph on the interstate and I just shake my head. Fools. You got a 30 foot trailer weighing over 3 tons. I wouldn't even try going over 65 mph. Tires are speed rated to 65mph usually. Goodyear Endurance are the best and some are rated to 80. The wind is your enemy. You need to be on your game if it gets windy. It don't take much more than a 25mph side gust of wind to blow that trailer around like a rag doll. You probably should park it if its above 30. I would.
  9. FYI 6.2, Everything you need to do your lift is on major backorder. McGaughys is a month to six weeks out. You need UCA'S to go 9" also. Shop around. Cognito, Kryptonite are top shelf. Bolt on easily replaceable ball joints. McGaughys have pressed in ball joints. Even tires are hard to get. A lot of wheels come from China so guess what? I suggest you take a look at Custom Offsets www. I ordered everything from them except the UCA'S. I went with Kryptonite from Alligator Performance. Plan on getting your lift done in November.

  12. I'm actually kind of pissed at myself for not getting 13.5's. I was afraid they would rub. I have plenty of room. When these are wore 1/2 way they get replaced with 13.5's Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  13. You won't regret 37's Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
