  1. Has a dually pictured but doesn't let you build a dually.
  2. Truck Dimensions

    Yeah everything I found said 51ft but that was probably short beds. Seems like length was also listed w/o rear bumper either. 56ft seems about right I need pretty much 3 lanes to make a u-turn so half of 56 is 28 or 3 lanes.
  3. Truck Dimensions

    I'm finding 258.x for my CCLB '09 dually as well. So I guess my rough measurement of 22ft with the hitch in was right. So when I upgrade I'll be pushing 23ft including the hitch. More importantly has the turning radius improved in 10+ years? Not that it matters jumping curbs or doing 3 point u-turns with impatient drivers is still fun :-D
  4. Dash Cam - Suggestions Please

    I have a Viofo A119S V2 currently. Works great for my needs and somehow hasn't died with the heat it gets subjected to. Viofo has since replaced it with the A119 V3 which I believe is this https://www.amazon.com/VIOFO-A119-1600P-Camera-Logger/dp/B07SWYVYJ7/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=a119+v3&qid=1563057686&s=gateway&sr=8-3. Forums seem to say it's a pretty decent improvement over my V2 so I might upgrade in the next year or so. Dual camera setup the Viofo A129 seems to be a good one as well. Or you can run a 2 cam setup. I've got some videos up https://www.youtube.com/user/Chevy85Guy/videos. If you want more cam footage go to dashcamtalk like Black previously said.

    So about the same length as my '09 CCLB dually with my hitch in the receiver, 22ft. New equivalent truck would put me about 23 or 24 foot long then. Thanks

    I've got a V8 and 8,000 lbs, I'll take them with me. I want new bumpers anyway, if I shoot back they take my gun for the investigation so using my pickup has better outcome for me :-D I'm more worried about the idiots on the road than I am about getting shot. If they want to back into me and drive off then I've got video evidence of a hit and run. That's what insurance and FHP are for.

    The other problem is how far past the line that car was. A lot of big rigs turn onto that road seeing as how UPS package, USPS, and Fedex Freight all have locations on that road. Truckers use all that space to make that turn going right up to that white line a lot of times. Car directly in front of me is farther than I'd go too. Where I'm at is where I stop even with no one in front of me. Fedex is literally across the street from us. I still tell people if they're going to do something stupid like fight go across the street to Fedex so you're off property

    Sometimes I wonder if people sit at lights to see how long I'll keep blowing my air horns at them...
  9. Family has always had pickups. Open beds, hard covers, soft covers and as far as I know none have been broken into. I had a soft cover on my '73 and that was the last soft cover I can remember. Recently got a solid fold 2.0 toolbox cover for the dually just to have more storage somewhat safe from the weather when I need it. I don't even lock my toolbox 99% of the time if someone wants something they'll find a way. Tailgate stays unlocked 99% of the time as well. Honestly I'm surprised nothing has been stolen from my toolbox over the years. The tools in there could easily be used to break into the bed with the solid fold on lol. Your new cover looks good.
  10. license plate fee

    Yeah that's for a year. I too get no discount on paying 2 years vs 1 year. https://www.flhsmv.gov/fees/ shows the base fees and how they're calculated.
  11. I just want a yard big enough to justify a riding lawn mower :'(

    Exactly what's happening here too. Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
  13. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Too many people was well over a decade ago. I wouldn't care except they're "fleeing" the hell hole north yet when they get here they change absolutely nothing about the way they do things. Then they wonder why it sucks down here. That's why you have to go north to get south in FL. On the bright side that roof held up pretty well on the car. Would have been interesting to see how they manged to roll AND spin the car though. Little bondo and some super glue to put the wheel back on and it'll be good to go.
  14. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Yesterday I didn't park in the shade while at work so truck cooked out in the sun. Thermometer in the ac vent said 125. It maxes out at 125. The truck's outside temp said 99 or there abouts. Today truck was 102 inside and it was 100 again outside according to the truck. Shade helps more than tinted windows and windshield shade apparently. Helped a friend move a couch, table, and chairs. Second run finished and unloaded to the stairwell of the apartment complex right as the skies opened up. On my trip home I got some interesting dashcam footage, especially when the trip home is less than 5 miles.
  15. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Yeah y'all have mentioned Aquapel a few times. I already have enough rainx to last me a couple more years probably. Especially since I rarely use it even though I really should be using it all the time. Is there an air temperature or range of temps that the AC should be pushing out? I think I found a thread for my generation from years ago on here but it didn't seem to conclude there was a temp it was supposed to put out. 2009 Sierra.
