22,440 is what I now weigh with my new toybox going down the road.

7.5 is the MPG I got when I pulled the "hard way" up two mountain passes this weekend. One was 1800', the other was 3200'. (The hard way is defined as ending up 2500' higher than where I started). Got 11MPG the easy way.

Went to my dad's new property in Eastern Wa that he'll be building a house on soon. Took my new toybox out for it's first run, loaded to the gills with stuff. So yeah, I know, I'm overloaded on my GCVW. But it handled surprisingly well. The trailer's rated at 10k, and the brakes had a LOT of pull to them. Had a WD hitch on a 4' Superhitch stinger. I was 4520 on steers, 10,240 on drives, 7680 on trailer. Guess I should take the beer out of the camper and put it in the trailer, that'd cut 1,000 off the drives.

And in the, what, 6-ish years I've been on here, I've never had my stock Camper Package suspension sag, needed bags, timbrens, or need any other mod. Now I do. It was about 1-2" butt-low. I even loaded the jeep in the rear to keep the tongue weight down.

Having the jeep and quad was a blast. I'm definitely going to be doing this more. Went places in the jeep that were just gorgeous, and without it, I would have likely not taken the camper off the truck and explored.

I think I saw a lobster tail on there.[emoticon]

Nice set up!!

We are getting the air bags installed in our F-250 (Same colors as yours)for our Lance SL 186 as I type this. I am not hauling nearly as much as you in my 6X12 enclosed though. We are hoping to take our maiden voyage in the TC this weekend to the sand dunes for Father's Day.
