RE: How to properly and safely lift a 5er?

You could install Correct Track and gain 2" , how nose high are you?

RE: BAK Roll-X Tonneau Cover

I just had a similar topic on here about tonneau covers. The Roll X was one of my final 2 choices, I ended up with a Retrax Pro.

RE: Reese Revolution and B&W

You will have no problem if you leave it locked like a standard pin box.

RE: Diesel Tuners

You can guarantee Ford didn't miss the tune these guys discovered in their garage. The big three diesel truck manufactor's could tune these trucks to produce much more power than we see today. Trying to meet emissions would never happen if they turned them up.

RE: RAM - 0-60, mpg, and tow test (pt 3) Hemi vs Cummins

That big Hemi sounds great, in fact both trucks are trying to jerk the pin off that fiver. Bravo to Ram for making great trucks, both gas and diesel. I enjoyed this thread

RE: B&W Nailed it for the RAM

How much does the Ram Towing Prep Package cost. I think it is hard to beat the TurnoverBall / Companion system so I doubt if I would pay anything extra for the puck system. With the GNRK 1314 $439 TurnoverBall the associated RVK 3500 $879 will give you 20K and 5K. Factory prep $ ? RVK 3600 $1,159 25K and 6,250# So with the RVK 3600 you have $169 to put towards the factory prep they will also give you the plug inside the bed. My choice without a doubt is the factory prep with the RVK 3600! I like the wide footprint on the Ram OEM mount too. I just can't do without the turnover ball for my Gooseneck trailers.

RE: truck bed

Outstanding job Paul on that receiver system, very nice platform racks too.

RE: Tonneau Cover

I ordered a Retrax Pro, thanks for all the replies. You will like the Retax Pro. I've had mine for nearly 3 years. No problems towing. Works and looks great. That is great to hear, your combo is very close to mine. I have around 8" Bed Clearance, I should be OK.

RE: Tonneau Cover

I believe the retractable type might be what I am leaning toward. I just saw the Truck Covers USA, and I might look at the Full Metal Jackrabbit. I am still very undecided.

What do I look at in the Truxedo line

Tonneau Cover

I want a tonneau cover for my truck, I have never owned a cover before so I know nothing. The covers I am interested in are the Retrax Pro, Bak RollX, and Undercover Elite. My concerns are with towing, what are some issues with these? I understand I would need to remove the Undercover while towing, but what about the other two? Is the RollX in the way while hitching, and during tight turns? Do the rails present problems with pin box clearance?

RE: Premium Bunkhouse 5th wheel

Thank you all for the feedback so far I really appreciate it. A couple of notes. Towing capacity is not an issue. We can tow 28,900lbs with a pin weight approaching 6k. I had not thought of KZ. Anyone out there with a Stoneridge 39BH? :-) We were originally thinking a TH... but our children are young and we wanted a more "indoor type bunk until they get a little older. We have actually looked at the Grand Designs bunkhouse twice now. We really like that 5th wheel with a couple of exceptions and thus far they have been deal breakers. Small fridge and no washer/dryer prep. A couple of sets of friends of ours in their trailers/motorhomes wish they had a bigger double fridge and a washer and dryer. I wish Grand Design would come out with a Solitude BH... I would remain patient, Grand Design might just make a Solitude Bunkhouse this fall. BTW if your 3/4 ton diesel is limited to 12/2k then you may be overweight with the 323BHS as the GVWR is 13,995 per GD's website.

RE: Where do your pets ride?

My mini Schnauzer rides on the center console, she likes to watch traffic.

RE: Andersen Hitch

This Guy had his bed broke by the flex in his 18k Companion. I am not crazy about the adaptor part of the Companion, Andersen, or the Bull Dog fifth wheel adaptor hitches...however, there are millions of miles and hundreds of thousands of users with these products. You can even add the Curt X5 adaptor base rails to this bunch. These all distribute some weight to the bed floor. I know they work, I don't think they are unsafe...at all... But the flex may damage some peoples bed to one degree or another...or it may not. I don't hate the fifth wheel rails...if I were installing a fiver hitch...I would probably use the rails. They just seem more secure giving a firm wide base with four anchor points directly on the frame. My dad has the rails and I can't say the get in the way of using the bed. My best friend had rails in his last truck. I helped him load many things in and out of the bed. The rails never seemed to get in the way. What I would probably do is install the fifth wheel rails and get a gooseneck plate for my rails if I ever needed to pull a gooseneck. I understand the desire for a "clean bed" but the reality is that most beds are not "clean" with or without the rails. I know a man who owns a 2012 F250 XL and pulls a fiver.... He has fifth wheel rails...he also has a B&W turnover ball for his horse trailer...I kinda scratch my head on that one...I would do one or the other. $125 gooseneck plate for the rails would have solved the issue. Thanks! Jeremiah The guy in the video stated he installed flat bar in the low part of the bed floor ( he had an older design). B&W provides a part that does just that on all Companion hitches now. With the flats of a bed supporting the weight directly over the bed channels, the Companion is a very strong secure hitch.

RE: Help me choose LT Tires

I like the Michelin MS2 as good as anything we have ever run. I like the looks of a Nitto tire, I just don't know anything about them.

RE: Towing through Eisenhower Tunnel

That sounds like a fun pull, I doubt your combination will have any problems up or down.

RE: B&W Hitch

I had always bought turnover balls for our Gooseneck applications. When I bought my first fifth wheel in 07 I installed a Reese Signature Series non sliding hitch to use with a Sidewinder. I had no major problems with that set-up, and at that time the Companion did not have a slider. When I saw the Companion Slider I had no doubts about what hitch my new truck would get. It's hard to beat a B&W hitch, they operate so smooth and rattle free. My Slider is as solid as the regular Companion, zero noise.
