I couldn't believe this. I was going to the repair shop for some minor stuff on my TC, and saw a Host Everest on a SRW Chevy. I was stunned. It looked like the rear tires were flat, and the truck was sagging.
I mean, I know I was just joking around in my post about getting a Everest on an F150.... Now I know what it would look like!


Check out the tie down chains-- they're loose and sagging!




Look at the fender clearance front vs rear---

Nope and nope. I asked when I dropped mine off. This dealer has never sold Host, and it's not their truck.

Well ! I hope your happy ! it would appear that some newbie read your original post and thought if you did it so could they. You have to realize the power of your posts and try in the future to use them for good and not evil.

just kidding of course, ( but not about the good/ evil thing )

I didn't mean that dealer, I meant the dealer that the people bought it from.

Ahhh nothing wrong here. The tires, had when they are like that you get more contact patch, just gives more traction that way and if its pops, then hey, only 1 tire to buy that way.

And the tie down, why do you need them tight, that TC is not going anywhere, sure not gonna just slide out, in fact I say run without tie down all together, they just give wind resistance.

I looked at this close and the TC is just hunkered down for less wind resistance. I like it...
