RE: Aftermarket tranny and diff covers

Diff oil is good for 100k miles. Some manufacturers don't even recommend to check it let alone change it. I wouldn't spend $250 on a diff cover just to make it easier to change the oil, unless you are constantly submerging you axles in water.

Mixing tie down systems

Does anyone see a problem with using Torklift mounts on the front and Happijac bumper buttons on the rear? Truck is a 1995 F350 crewcab dually. I'm guessing the truck is old enough to have the "good" bumpers.

RE: New camper, old truck.

You will be fine... http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x94/desert1957/P5190529.jpg PS: Older trucks were NOT rated less than new ones... Awesome. A pic was just what I was looking for.

New camper, old truck.

Would I have any fitment issues with my 2014 Lance 1050s going on a 1988 GMC 3500 crewbad dually?

RE: To TC'ers who have bought new trucks

Normally no. Sometimes the pistons, heads, injectors ect. are different as well as the tune.

RE: To TC'ers who have bought new trucks

That may be the pickup tune on the CTD, but expect less in the chassis cab tune. My 2015 CTD has 325 HP and 750 ft-lbs because they expect people to actually use the engine close to its limits under longer duty cycles. This is no different than HEMI gasoline engines - The tune in cars is way up from pickups and the chassis cabs are detuned even more than the pickups. Yes I'm very familiar with pickup vs. Chassis cab specs. He ordered a 3500 which with have the upgraded Cummins.

RE: To TC'ers who have bought new trucks

At the dealership the fleet guy ordered me a 2016 Ram 3500 to come late August or September...I'm excited about it but actually been spending time wondering and researching if I should switch to a 4500/5500. Even with the increased GVW to 14K, with my AF 1150 I'm pretty much right there already, they did not change the axle ratings a whole lot for the 14k GVW rating. The only thing holding me back on the flatbeds is it will than be just the camper hauler won't be driving a flatbed to the office and to client meetings (I'm a CPA) with the dually pickup I can still daily drive it. The CTD in the 2016 Ram will have 900 ft.-lb. Of torque. That will put a smile on your face.

RE: Little Guy Cirrus

Not to long ago manufacturers were pulling out of the TC market or just plain going out of business. We should be excited when someone new decides to enter the TC market. They are willing to invest a lot of money into a once dead market.

RE: Little Guy Cirrus

Why are so many thinking it's so great and appealing? I don't think anyone was saying "how great and appealing" this camper is. Most people commented before the full article and camper specs came out unlike you. Chill.. This camper has some new ideas and a unique look unlike the other manufacturers that keep putting out the same old thing just disguising old ideas with new colors and fabric patterns. I welcome anything new and different in the truck camper industry wether I like it or not.

It was also featured on "Rollin' on TV". You can see it on one of their episodes posted on YouTube.

RE: Oregon Coast what is your must see???

Nehalem bay is a very nice place to camp and visit. Tillamook cheese factory was a major let down for us when we went last year.

RE: How to spend money in Canada

I am the OP of this thread. On our trip to Canada last July we strictly used our credit card everywhere including every time we had to fill up. The only problem we ran into was at one gas they did not know how to run my credit card because it did not have the security chip in it. The person behind the counter had never seen a CC without a security chip. I guess the U.S. is the last country in the world to have chipped credit cards. So I paid cash there. Just last week I received my brand new CC with the security chip.

RE: Ford F350: Which motor?

I have a 2011 f350 srw crew 4x4 6.2 gas,and I average 16mpg with camper on,and 18 to 21 unloaded.everything is stock.till warr is up cant do any mods.when it is want to do air box,over drive frm camping world,and a pro charger on engine,belt driven external unit not a screw blower .has any 1 heard of these? they will really wake up your gas engines. There is no way you are getting that kind of MPG's unless everywhere you go is downhill with the wind to your backside. I had the exact same truck but a regular cab and got 10 mpg loaded and 12 to 13 empty.

RE: TR: Anza Borrego XTC Training Session with Alex

I don't know about these crash sites but there are crash sites where Air Force, Marine, and Navy pilots have lost their lives during training missions. My nephew who is in the AF lost two of his friends in a night training crash a couple years ago. Just wanted visitors to be aware and respectful. That's a very good point. But on the flipside, it's to bad the military isn't respectful enough to clean up those crash sites.

RE: TR: Anza Borrego XTC Training Session with Alex

Cool TR. I did not know there were crash sites out there. I will have to go check it out in the near future.

RE: Truck Cabin Air Filters

Cabin air filters in autos serve the same purpose as the filter in your HVAC system in your house.

RE: Truck mounted Torklift Tie downs for Lance 1172

I dont have any pictures but the Torklift tiedowns took me about an hour to install front and rear. Did not need to lift the truck to install them and they work great with my Lance. When not in use you can easily remove the "outriggers" in seconds and nothing will stick out.

RE: New Truck Suspension Enhancements

I put Torklift Stableloads on my 2013 and that was all I needed. Ditto that.
