    Ram Tradesman w/power wagon option VS Gladiator rubicon/mojave

    I was getting over 20 mpg with the 1500 until I mounted 255/80-17 Toyo AT3 tires --- narrow true 33". With 3.92 gearing my mileage dropped to around 17. Just tires. I didn't think it would affect it that much. ....but the OE tires were P rated softie sidewall crap. 31.6" but really bad offroad.

    Very cool of you to say that ---- Chad and Kos are real people, real members of the community, and real nice people to camp with. This and these types of businesses are the ones that our collective should be supporting. BTW, seeing that you're from England, it made me think of Guinness. And...

    Lets see some full size pictures...

    Camped with @Tennmogger and his daughter over the weekend. I guess that the LMTVs count as "full sized" too.

    Finally found a Venter trailer in the US!

    No. Had it titled, had a VIN, had to have it inspected by local PD. When I registered it though, the tag lady didn't know what KG meant so I paid about 1/3 for the reg fee. :)
