RE: Bought a second truck.

Thank you. Of course I did. Everyone does. ;) And I thought I did a short video but I guess not. :(

RE: Bought a second truck.

Hedders and mufflers installed. Just a short drive. I didn't start pushing it until I was 1/2 way thru 3rd gear. Just a couple of short videos of how the new exhaust turned out.

RE: Bought a second truck.

https://i.postimg.cc/vm2kJgLQ/IMG-2079.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/L8HWhBx9/IMG-2084.jpg YouTube link to exhaust sound. Its louder in person. I got the hedders and the mufflers installed. Its louder than I was hoping for, its louder in person. And I'm not happy about where the mufflers ended up so it will be off to the exhaust shop soon. I can say that there is a noticeable increase in power. :B Just what the doctor ordered. ;) The truck rocks and I am soo pleased with that Mercury Marauder 410 4V. https://i.postimg.cc/gJ6S1M2D/IMG-2082.jpg Here's the factory manifolds. The right one is on top. Had they both been like the left one I might have just gone with dual exhaust but the right one just looks a bit too restrictive to me.

RE: Bought a second truck.

Thanks, I had an H-pipe and FlowMaster cat back exhaust on my 5.0L HO Mustang. It sounded great. Like a health 5.0L.

RE: Bought a second truck.

https://i.postimg.cc/PrMFBD7s/IMG-1672.jpg A short YouTube video, "I love the sound when you crack the secondaries open". https://i.postimg.cc/DyB31RnX/IMG-1676.jpg Another short YouTube video. "Last Attempt" A few days ago just out playing. I have to say that the 410, 410 gears and my traction tires make a great combination. It was ice under the snow so I couldn't dig down to the dirt so it was just high range and a lot of throttle. The truck is running excellent and I really enjoy driving it. The none miles to the gallon isn't very exciting but the 410 is.

RE: Bought a second truck.

^Above trunk is about the same size as a 1/2 ton 5.5 bed golf club hauler. Those tires look to have some bite for sure! Should be a great choice for Winter snow. Jerry I've been in the snow once with them and they are awesome winter tires. I'm very pleased and impressed with them.

RE: Not bad for 11 years and 240,000 miles.

Is that truck rated to carry that camper weight?? Looks like a short bed truck without dully wheels and I doubt it can handle that!! If you're talking about the OP's truck, it's a long bed 2500HD with a 6.0 gas engine. I had a similar truck, an older generation with a lower GVWR compared with the OP's. Despite this, it's payload rating was nearly 4000 lbs. With 240K on the clock I would say the truck has "handled it" just fine! Thank you, the truck does an excellent job hauling my camper. Fully loaded the camper weighs in close to 4000 lbs. According to the numbers I'm over weight. The weight police kill me. :R :B

RE: A new adventure for me.

I'm curious about exterior maintenance. Water leaks kill most RVs ! I just do the regular maintenance keeping it sealed up tight.

RE: A new adventure for me.

Hopefully this job pays mega bank, because I can't imagine having to live in a truck camper on the job site. I do it for up to 16 days at a time. It's actually quite relaxing. No commute. Wake up, make coffee and breakfast, pull on the work clothes and you are there when you walk out the door. Lunch you have a full kitchen and private bathroom, end of the day you walk to the parking area go in the camper crack a beer, shower and have dinner and kick back. I haul the US Mail. I'm gone 14+ hours a day. My work truck is parked right outside my door. I stay in the camper two nights one week and three the next. I stay at a friends and he supplies me with power and water and charges me $50 month.

RE: Bought a second truck.

https://i.postimg.cc/FFj3ftj5/Evolution-Winter-RR-1.webp These are the winter tires that I bought for my car. They too are directional tires. Thank Heaven they have an arrow to show the direction of rotation so they can mount them correctly. I'll be having Walmart mount and balance them for me.
