    Project "Autonomous" F-350

    If you do Instagram....there’s an ole’ boy there who goes by @theadventurepenthouse He’s got a really cool 2nd gen Dodge that he put a cool top on. He built the interior himself and it’s even got a pop-up roof. I’m not sure if he modified a bought utility type topper- or if it’s a store bought...

    Destination Unknown - a 1997 F350 build

    I like it!!!!! That’s optimal use of space! Working things out is the fun part to me. I enjoy setting up a particular layout, trying it out, and then completely starting over. I’m strange. But I eventually end up with something that works well. I currently have a great setup to use my truck for...

    Project "Autonomous" F-350

    I’ve still got my old Jayco slide in. It’s a pop up is about the only thing about it that I’m really happy about. The more I got to messing with it the less I liked it. I don’t think it’d be hard to shake it to pieces off road......or maybe in road. But not so much because of rot, it’s pretty...

    Project "Autonomous" F-350

    Just wanted to give you a hard time Mike. I always thought a hard side would be enjoyable to use- but didn't think it would be any fun off-road. But there's a thread here at the portal for people doing just that. The U-Haul camper will be really awesome when you get it done. But custom usually...

    Project "Autonomous" F-350

    You’re a mess! I thought you were doing the U-Haul custom thing!?!? I think that you and I have much in common.....there’s no project like any project!

    Project "Autonomous" F-350

    I'm just dying see this thing come together. My suspicion is that it's gonna be a really cool truck. I'm not really a horsepower junky....but I LOVE things that are bomb proof. I like good parts. I like things that are proven and dependable. Looks like this old truck is gonna have a LOT of...

    Stock Ram L/S VS Detroit TrueTrac

    For what it's worth....which is little at this point, the Detroit is nothing to be scared of. Yes if you are in a tight turn on wet pavement the inside tire can slip if you hammer the go pedal. But just driving normal on wet roads....nope. Feels stock. Snow, ice, I've noticed no problems. I do...

    Stock Ram L/S VS Detroit TrueTrac

    Any particular reason you are not wanting a Detroit? Quite often I see the tru-trac installed in front diffs and the Detroit in the rear. Although I do know of a few trucks that have tru-tracs in the rear. But they had worn out limited slips to start with or were open. It’s a lot of investment...

    Lets see some full size pictures...

    You got some good bones there! You should consider doing a build thread if you haven’t already started one. I see it’s a F-250 with a hand-shaker trans....any more details you can share?

    SLO's FWC Hawk Refurb/Build...

    Well dang....that's a mixed bag of emotion. This truck was a huge source of inspiration for many of the "upgrades" I've made to mine. I've followed this build closely, and even bought many pieces for mine because of your recommendations. It's good to see, and hear how much use you've gotten out...

    Slide In Campers and Weight Ratings....

    I can honestly say that I've never heard of anybody in a pickup truck getting in trouble for being overweight when an accident occurred. But- it still makes good sense to say. You are correct idaSHO- it's crazy what you can get away with in a recreational vehicle. I had a dually pickup with a...

    Slide In Campers and Weight Ratings....

    I've ran overloaded pickup trucks for years. For a few generations of trucks now- pick a brand- the differences between 3/4 and one ton trucks is generally minimal. The single biggest difference is in the springs that are used. Unless your talking a dually....then throw my statement out the...

    1992 f150 daily driver and adventure rig.

    Ain't Luke Combs from Boone, N.C? Also.....shame about the truck. But you just gotta do what makes the best sense for you.
