RE: 5.5 Foot Bed Options/Who's running one?

Is there a reason a 3/4 is not preferred for Offroad use? Better frame, suspension, axles and brakes. Have you checked Alaskan campers? Would work great on a 3/4 ton truck.

RE: Going without air bags

Have you considered Torklift Stableloads? Depending on configuration you may find airbags are no longer necessary.

RE: Need Towing Advice, PLEASE HELP

Be sure the trailer has electric brakes, even if not required in your state. Be sure to check your owners manual or door jam sticker for proper tow rig tire inflation. Do upgrade the transmission cooler. The 3200lb trailer mentioned is probably a better match. Check owners manual for proper use of OD while towing (off?).

RE: Cell Phone question??

Formerly Wilson Electronics now Weboost has many different products that would solve the problem. Call them to see what works best for you.

RE: Stuck in the mud, any tips?

After digging out the jacks, can you drop some rock in front of or behind the tires?

RE: Best Tire 225 70R 19.5

My current 19.5's are BFG's. They use the Michellin casing. Cheaper than Michellin. Well balanced tires. I have three tires with 4ounces of balance weight and one with 2 ounces of balance weight. That's less than most non commercial applications.

RE: E bay or Amazon?

Prefer Amazon. Returns are painless. Prime also includes video.

RE: Equalizer Headphones That Do Not Cost A Small Fortune?

There are headphone amps available. I have not tried them. I have the Bose QC 25 noise cancelling headphones. They are well above your stated budget. They are very nice to listen too. There are some headphone amps on Amazon within your stated budget.

RE: Arctic Fox 990

Torklift Stableloads. If you think you need airbags try Stableloads first. Great tech. I also have Torklift stairs and handle/rail for my Arctic Fox. Torklift Stableloads http://www.torklift.com/images/product_images/stableload/stableload.jpg

RE: Temporary towing with Ford Explorer

Thanks for all your great feedback. It looks like the consensus is that ANY TT towing with the Explorer is a bad idea :B. So, I cooked a heck of a deal on a new 2016 Ford F-150 (traded the Explorer) and we are back in business, could not be happier. Thanks again to all the great fellow RVers out there. You should now have plenty of safety margin. Congrats.

RE: Alcan Hwy Alaska Cell service?

It looks like the start is Dawson's Creek. Alcan Hwy

Alcan Hwy Alaska Cell service?

What works best along the Alcan Highway? Verizon? AT&T? T-Mobile? A friend is going up there for a Willy's Jeep event.

RE: Grease Ram Front 4x4 Drive Shaft

Local dealer refuses to grease the front drive shaft on my 06' with regular oil change. It's there. Have to grease it myself.

RE: I think I goofed.

The special day tools required make no sense to buy for a gear change. It's straight forward swap on an 8.8 rear axle. Local Offroad shop, local mechanic or dealer should be able to accomplish. Replace all seals. 3.73 is what I would do. This will eat more fuel when empty. Your current 3.07 were installed for best fuel mileage.

RE: Best Truck Campers for Winter Camping

My Arctic Fox is really good when the slide is closed. If used with the slide open I could feel a draft. This is at 15deg.

RE: C B Radio Help

The ant needs to be grounded, preferably to a large metal area. It should work if mounted to a metallic, tubular mirror bracket. For transmitting it's important to tune the ant but it should receive ok as-is. I would double check that the base of the ant is connected to the vehicles body/ground. Any chance your mirror bracket is rubber mounted and isolated electrically? It sounds like your antenna is isolated from the vehicle. Find someone with an swr meter.

RE: Size of Alternator

75amp output rated when cold and moving at our near maximum rpm. Almost all alternators are cold rated. I have a welding alternator that's hot rated. When the alternator warms up to operating temperature it produces less power. When warm it will never produce 75amps. On average the engine takes 20amps to run. Headlights 20amps. Hvac 20amps.

RE: I think I goofed.

That sounds like 2000lb dead pull, 5 or 6k with weight distributing?

RE: Dining plan or not at Disney

Good points. But you don't have to do the dining plan for the "six months in advance" reservations. That's for everyone. I wasn't too sure on that. My wife takes care of the paperwork. Do make your reservations 6months in advance for any type of must have dining. Last time we paid extra for the park hopper. Never ever left the park. Our next trip will not include the Park Hopper option. We will also take time to visit Harry Potter at Universal. Last time we stayed at Fort Wilderness. Nice restaurant at the Hotel.

RE: Dining plan or not at Disney

Dining Plan allows reservations 6months in advance. We typically go for a mid tier dining plan. Book your character meals as soon as possible. Eating in the castle is very cool for the kids. Also, plan a character meal inside Epcot for early morning. This gives you early access to Epcot before the general public. We have some great shots of the Epcot ball with zero people in the shot. Our next scheduled visit will include dinner reservations in Epcot at Canada. It was a 6hr wait last time with no reservations.
