Imagine the day when Torklift starts manufacturing their own truck campers [emoticon].

Agreed. I wonder if they could use an engineer who is tired of corporate nonsense.... [emoticon]

The first thing I did when upgrading trucks was upgrade my Torklift gear.

Wasn't the truck upgrade recent? I didn't think the fastguns with the 'winchester' handles still available?

Yep! I use to use happy jack tie downs. Now torklift. My life is so much easier when using the Truck Camper. I know happy jacks work fine but for me the ease of use of torklift is worth its weight in gold.

Got mine in or about 1st February this year. Winchester handles. Mind you, I got them from the dealership where I bought my TC, so perhaps older inventory.

I gotta agree with woodhog on this one. Just about the coolest thing I have seen or heard of in a long time.

Nothing less than outstanding!

I was able to get FastGun Short Range turnbuckles by ordering by part number:

Gray - S9250
White - S9521
Stainless (mine) - S9527

I went from the long range version attaching my Arctic Fox to Ford frame mounts to the short ones directly to my Ram flat bed stake pockets.

very very cool! Like Bedlam I went from long 'guns' to 'shorties' when I went to a flatbed. I ditched what the previous owner was using even though he made it to Argentina and back without issue. An old friend was happy to take my old ones but I certainly never thought twice about going a different route. I have a pile of old turnbuckles from my first camper....I can't see using anything else in the future than the fastguns. Just such a great product and cool company.

Kohldad, if you see this, maybe your dad should have told his story of driving the BRP and he would get some hooked ends on his tire downs like Whazoo did (I think Whazoo did anyway, after his ascent near Moab.) [emoticon]

I have been looking around for a new class 4/5 hitch for my truck. This post has made easy my decision on which manufacturer I will be buying -- Torklift.
