RE: Nascar Follies

Think he's asking if Kyle won yesterday would Denny make the final 4. From what I read on NASCAR's website regarding clinch scenarios, possibly not because he was 20 points behind Kyle after Texas. Pretty sure the only way Denny made it to the dance was with a win. ^^^This. Kyle kept the 12 off of Denny, so Denny could make the finale.

RE: Nascar Follies

If the 18 won would the 11 be in the finale?

RE: Banks Differential Cover

Does one think AAM would design a differential cover and install it on their differential that would compromise it? Following AAM’s severe service recommendations with a quality synthetic differential oil would be a better way to spend $400.00, than a flashy differential cover.

RE: Upgrade truck suspension

If your going to change the shocks, go with Bilstein 4600’s, no shock adjustments required.

RE: What is a 6.0L Chevy engine

The 6.0l is a LS based V8 that was available in 2500 series and up trucks and in some limited capacities in the 1500 series trucks. For a Suburban 2500 in the early 2000’s it is the base motor. Later examples 07-13 (ish I think) it was the only offering. You could get a 6.0 in a Yukon Denali or a Cadillac Escalade in the early 2000’s as well. It’s a tough motor and reliable as an anvil. It is head and shoulders better than a 350 small block. Great motors. While the pesky spark plug spitting issue in the Fords was a bit overblown...I would say that the 6.0 is as reliable if not slightly more reliable than the 2v Ford Modular motors. Thanks! Jeremiah X2. Great motor.

RE: New Tires - too many options

Grit, true story. When I was working in forklift sales, I had a Chinese food distributor. He had a shrine to Buda and everything. In the summer the floors of his warehouse sweated and the dust on the floors turned into this black slime. One hot summer day I payed them a visit and the only place to park was in front of a dumpster, and that dumpster stunk so bad you could have sworn there was dead bodies in it. Ever since that day I cannot eat Chinese food.:B

RE: New Tires - too many options

YEP, let's all support the Communist Chinese every chance we get to save a few$$$. These US Made Michelins are doing well at 30k with at least 1/3 towing 34-35k combined with a rear axle weight of 10,500#. 8/32" tread left all around. Rears stay where they are ALL the time, fronts side to side keeping rotation the SAME!!! https://i.imgur.com/6b7qgJQl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/bkizNLOl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/TmYB2Icl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/S2XrcJtl.jpg Its not about supporting the Chinese , its about the fact of not being held up for ransom on the outrageous prices of say the Goodyear G614 . There was a day we didn't have a "CHOICE", those days are gone . Goodyear needs to wake up . Yes, it is also about the pocketbook, I want a quality product ,and will pay for it if necessary, but not in this case, there is not a need , and refuse to give nearly twice for a tire. I don't care where it is made. WOW! The Chinese worker thanks you for your support.:R

RE: Carport

I have a VersaTube structure, rated at 90 mph wind load and 65 lb. snow load. It’s 30’ long by 12’ wide by 12’ high side wall, with 13.5’ in the peak. GeoBoy, The height on mine will be very close. When you say the high side wall height is 12'-0", is that 12' from the concrete to the roof sheet metal or is that 12' to the bottom of the roof structural rectangular tube the roof sheet metal roof sets on? Basically, is there a full 12' clearance at the edges of the cover when you back your TC under it? Or is it 12' minus 2" or 3" for the roof support tube? thanks for your help, bradw Brad, I will measure it tomorrow morning. Ok, sorry I didn’t get back yesterday. My VersaTube measures 12’ tall at the inside sidewall, it is 13’8” clear in the peak. Inside width is 11’6”.

RE: Neighborhood bear

I have wondered if as smart as bears are it would not be a good idea to try to train them around your house is not a pleasant place to be. Spring would be best time, I think. Get a bag of balloons, and experiment with pressure until you find the minimum to get a decent pop when it is punctured. Put some of the ingredients of bear spray in the balloons, inflate, and hang them around the area, high enough for a bear to have to reach up to it. Dab some grease or honey on the outside so the bear will reach for it. Not sure if the best gun for bear defense would be a potato cannon with the potato hollowed out and filled with peanut butter. Fire past him, and while he is distracted by that smell you go the other way. WOW:S

RE: Carport

Bill, sorry about that, I have a 2016 AF 990 and it measures 11’9” mounted on the truck. No problems loading/unloading. Thx geoboy. Do you think 20’ wide would accommodate a TC and Airstream? Bill Bill, they will fit but it’s going to be tight. Will a 20’ wide shelter meet your state’s snow load requirements?

RE: Carport

ScottG, what are the dimensions of your carport? Geo-is the 12’ wide enough? Thx, Bill Yes, I have the metal on the sides come down 6’, this way my township doesn’t tax me because it is a “patio pavilion” and not a garage.

No, I had a 5”+ thick reinforced concrete slab installed, waited for it to fully cure and then had the dealer install the structure.

RE: Planing on getting an Arctic Fox TC

My wife and I are also looking to replace our 16 year old Travelite with a new Arctic Fox 1140 or a Northstar 12STC. In fact, we're heading up to Truck Camper Warehouse Friday to look at them. I will also be buying a new Ram longbed to haul the new camper. I'd like to stay away from a dually if at all possible, as 75% of my driving is without the camper, often pulling a snowmobile trailer long distances. If you want to stick with a SRW truck go with the Northstar TC. Arctic Fox will be too heavy.

RE: Fit an 8 foot bed?

Give Rex at Northstar a call, he will advise you on how to remove the rear compartments.

Like they say, see something, do something about it.

RE: Planing on getting an Arctic Fox TC

No, Northwood doesn’t recommend DRWs for all of their truck campers. I’m thinking you heard that at your local truck dealer. :D Starting in 2013 and right to today, in Arctic Fox TC literature there is a statement under Camper Safety Tips and it states, a dual wheel truck is recommended for ALL Arctic Fox campers.

RE: Fit an 8 foot bed?

That Northstar TC looks to be a shortbed camper and no you don’t need a dually, most Northstar TC’s are designed for SRW trucks.
