    I have some with that tire wheel combo. They work much better than stock. If you are not afraid to air down.

    New Expedition Camper - Overland Explorer

    The flatbed was built by Overland Explorer same company that built the camper. IT was designed and built as an integrated unit. The camper mounts to the flatbed via six spring loaded attachment points. I will try to post some pics.

    New Expedition Camper - Overland Explorer

    Brief update here. Been awhile since my last post. Since that time................Camper has been to Alaska and back again. This time with my son and a buddy. Over 5,000 trouble free miles. I have added wheel spacers and now run all wheels dish out and tracking properly. Added AIR CTI...

    good tips. Don't seem to be an issue with mine but I can certainly see how it could be.

    I think the Dana/Spicer is what is used on the military trucks. If my info is accurate it's an OEM system and designed into the vehicle including specific wheels and perhaps axles and hubs too. Not as a retro fit system. There is a Canadian system called Tire Boss that is a competitor to AIR...

    My truck and camper arrived in Valdez AK noon yesterday. From central WA in 3.5 days. Have no idea why my son and buddy went so fast. Oh well the camper made it with no issues.

    Sounds interesting. Who makes such a system and what does it cost?

    BTW even airing down to say 45 psi would make a big diff and I think that would get you 50-55 mph on the highway without heat build up. Buy one of those infrared thermometers and monitor them.

    HI Gabe, what are CO's? Not sure a bigger tank would do much...............you are not going to get a tank big enough to air up all your tires and once it's drained you have to fill it up before you can continue airing up. My AIR CTI is new but so far I am happy with it. I will of course keep...

    30 psi anywhere. It's the speed and resulting heat buildup not the road surface. That low of air I held my speed to 35 max and never got heat build up. Yes I get the worry of the exposed hoses. They have a YouTube testimonial from a logging company that states they have almost no issues with...

    Airing down is only an issue due to the time to stop, air down - run - stop, air up. Consider an AIR-CTI kit. Expensive, until you compare it to the cost of a full blown suspension modification. Air up and down from the comfort of your cab. Also don't worry about airing down those 19.5.s I...
