RE: Grand Design Reflection 303

I replaced my Westlake tires before I made a trip. Who knows, those Westlakes might be OK. I have always replaced OEM tires on everything I own, not a big deal.

RE: RAM Dually Tires-New Tires

I have always run stock width on my dual wheel trucks for the reason you mentioned.

RE: Tires

I just put a set of NITTO EXO Grapplers on my 2500HD. I pulled the Hankook ATM's off and when my 3500HD gets here I will take the Michelin AT2's off that and will be traded back on the NITTO's I have on now. The ATMs will end up back on my 2500HD when it is traded in. Interestingly I made this deal about a month ago and did the deal with my tire guy on my take off Michelins. He now has a whole room full of take off Michelins which have come off of new or near new HD's. It appears no one is staying with the Michelin AT2, they are now only giving $100 per tire trade for the Michelins. I gave $300 plus my new take offs for the NITTO's. Maybe it is just this area, but no one is digging that AT2. The Hankook ATM is an excellent tire in my experience, decent traction and I was getting great wear out of the tires. I just needed something a little more aggressive. The NITTO EXO's have been excellent in snow and ice and mud so far. Hopefully they wear well, but the traction is certainly there. My tire size is 275/70/18. I don't think it's just your area, my dad is the only person I know who likes the AT2. I am looking very hard at the Terra Grappler G2 for my next set. I have been a Michelin customer for over 20 years, they don't have OEM sizes for my truck (MS2). maybe time for a change.

RE: Tires

I have a good friend who ran the Terra Grappler on his 2500, he said they got loud after he put some miles on them. I like the new Terra Grappler G2, they look very impressive.

RE: Weight Police is in trouble now

The cost of the dolly must be very high, looks like it's well built. I bet it would handle good, I think it's a great idea.

RE: Z71 Package to tow with

No problem with the Z-71 ride at all, my truck was ordered without it because I liked the LTZ grill better when I bought it. Now I like the Z-71 grill, go figure. A couple of my good friends have the Z-71 package, it offers more than just the shocks. I have a little buyers remorse not getting the GMC Denali I said I was getting the day before ordering mine. If you can get what you like don't worry about the Z-71 package, ride is the same and you get some extra options with it.

RE: Ford, GM and Chrysler cash in on posh pickups

I bet at one time Rolls Royce has made something like a truck for some billionaire.

RE: 50 amp fiver - 30 amp service

I think you will be OK, but it depends on your required loads as mentioned. The only time we have problems is while running the AC, and trying to use the microwave.

RE: noisy hitch

The picture does show the workings of the B&W. One thing to note if the handle is where the picture shows it, and the jaws are wrapped around the pin ( you can see if you are around the pin) it will not open up. You must install the safety latch pin in the handle, but it ain't opening up. I had a Signature Series hitch in my previous truck (slider, and fixed before the slider) they are very nice hitches, the noise was with the rocking head when not towing on mine. I am certainly not bashing Reese, in fact I still own 2 Signature Series fixed position hitches, they are in storage at one of my shops. I do have them for sale, listed on another site. I believe the jaw system on the Elite and Signature Series is every bit as secure as my B&W, but I wouldn't give up my B&W for another brand. I don't believe you can buy a better functioning hitch than the B&W at any cost, they just work great.

RE: Full Body Wrap

I would go for paint if it was me. I am interested in the replies you get on this.

RE: Our New Grand Designs 355TH

We love ours. Very pleased with it with zero problems. Far and above the quality of the Raptor we had. now that you have had your GM toy hauler for a while, how do you like how it tows with a 3/4 ton? They are heavy trailers so I am just curious. Does it pull stable? Yes they are heavy. 18,000 GVW on the 355. Our Raptor was 15,500 and rightfully so, you can feel it back there. I pulled the Raptor initially with my 07' Duramax and it did just fine, or so I thought until I bought my 11'. While the truck looks the same on the outside, the totally new frame made a world of difference in stability and rigidness. The difference from the 07' to the 11' is night and day. So yes, the trailer itself pulls just fine. Very stable and it does not scare me at all. I'm sure I am over on pin weight and a dually will definitely be on my short list when I trade trucks. But the only reason I would consider is for the carrying capacity of the duals over the single tires. At least on the Chevrolet, the only difference between a 2500 and 3500 is the addition of a leaf spring (I have bags on the truck to help with the weight) and the duals. Other than that, identical driveline, brakes, ect. Many of the "Weight Police" on here won't like that but.....oh well. Towing your rig with a dually will be like your upgrade from the 07 to the 11. While your current SRW seems fine, once you go to the DRW you will feel the noticeable improvement in stability. Similar to your 11' upgrade you will have to experience the difference to appreciate it. He has changed trucks, I saw pictures on the Grand Design Owners forum. He now has a Mega Cab Dually, it is black and looks very sharp with his Toyhauler

RE: hitch installation

I've always installed mine myself, it's really not hard. X2. I wouldn't know who to get in my area either.

RE: Tri-Ball Mount with Hook needed

At etrailer, $49.95 dead nuts: http://www.etrailer.com/Ball-Mounts/Reese/45325.html?feed=npn&gclid=CPq7gf7zp8ICFQ4Q7AodWS4AtA Will your trailers work with a 0" drop without running extremely nose-high? The receiver on my 3500 is so high I need a 3-1/2" to 5" drop shank depending on which trailer I'm towing. No way my truck could pull with 0 drop without being nose high.

RE: Michelin Ribs Bad Tires for a Trailer????

I think you would have a hard time finding a better trailer tire in their weight capacity, they are very good for 6k Axles

RE: What size truck fo I need ??

RE: How do FWs handle uneven terrain?

As mentioned, go slow if the ground is uneven they will get close at times. I worry about hitting the inside of my bed, as much as the top, tight turns get close there too. Once again, go slow and watch it.

RE: Nerf bars for 2014 Silverado Crew Cab

I bought 6" Oval on my trucks in the past, now I have the 4" round. I have always bought the OEM bars

RE: tonnaeu

For those that use a Fold-a-Cover tonneau with a 6.5 bed, I would like to ask if the cover folded up at the front when towing clears the fiver in sharp turning situation? I'm sure it does in road travel, but I'm concerned about uneven camp sites when backing in some of those tight spots. I'm considering this for my next TV because my current tonneau, Retrax, eats up alot of space in the bed with the cannister. I would like to go with a folding hard top that locks. That was my concern before I settled on the Retrax Pro, I don't think my trailer could clear it in a tight turn. Another option, as mentioned in this thread is the Bak Roll X, I think that is a very nice cover.
