    2008 M116A1 Trailer and a one-time trip with a Four Wheel Camper [Sanity Check]

    Thank you, sir! At this point, Im not sure if it's going to be an exact fit, length-wise. (I cant find anything specific on bed-length. Seller states it's an 8-foot bed, so is the camper. Allegedly. If so, magnetic lights would be a GO, if I could find them locally in such a short-notice...

    2008 M116A1 Trailer and a one-time trip with a Four Wheel Camper [Sanity Check]

    Hey everyone! Last summer, I finished my old Coleman pop up. https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/1974-coleman-valley-forge-complete-gut-job.204401/ It's pretty sweet, but I cant bring much else besides the camper when I go with the pop up. Last week, I returned from a deployment to...

    Indecision, the (Ford) Used Diesel Market and the Year 2021 - Need a sanity check

    You guys really helped me make up my mind. yesterday, I found a 2016 F250 Lariat 6.2 & quickly traded my 2016 F150 Lariat in for it. Quality 3/4-ton Trucks are getting hard to find!

    Indecision, the (Ford) Used Diesel Market and the Year 2021 - Need a sanity check

    I was under the impression any suspension mods would void the warranty??? I'll definately be looking into that. I havent bought the truck yet, I have time. The 7.3 gas looks pretty impressive also. Ive had that before! Thank goodness my chiropractor got rid of it. The flatbed 'might' help...

    Indecision, the (Ford) Used Diesel Market and the Year 2021 - Need a sanity check

    Thanks AG. I'm leaning more and more towards the 6.2L gasser. I'm just not convinced I "need" a diesel, and all the potential problems down the road. I'd have to drive a diesel for a LONG time before the fuel savings & servicing costs paid for themselves. On my 2015 F250 6.7 diesel & 2016...

    2021 Ford F250 Tremor Adventure Rig

    Brett, Im playing catch-up here. First, very nice set up you have. Im still trying to decide WHICH F250 to get (gas/diesel - new/old)...your info above was very helpful, as I had not thought of either issue. Second, you had a short box truck. Assume you put an 8-foot box on? Any...

    Indecision, the (Ford) Used Diesel Market and the Year 2021 - Need a sanity check

    Great discussion points, all around. As mentioned above, there is no perfect truck. Im just trying to get as close as possible this time around. You get that kind of mileage LOADED? 2WD or 4WD? For me, 4WD is a must. That said, would be almsot perfect for my needs. I've seen a LOT of...

    Indecision, the (Ford) Used Diesel Market and the Year 2021 - Need a sanity check

    Wow! As I mentioned above, I had NO idea that was against federal law. How do dealerships get around this? Im sure folks who dont know a thing about diesels wont bad an eye once the seller tells the potenial buyer "it's good for more power and engine longevity". It's definately a...

    Indecision, the (Ford) Used Diesel Market and the Year 2021 - Need a sanity check

    I know they do for 2000-era F250s. Havent looked into the late models yet. I'm not 100% sure about deleting. I see them for sale all the time, but that mod always raises my eyebrows when looking at used trucks. Maybe it WAS jsut an average guy, trying to keep his 6.0/6.4 alive a while longer...

    Indecision, the (Ford) Used Diesel Market and the Year 2021 - Need a sanity check

    I hear you on that. No EGR, DEF, only one fuel filter, ability to run whatever (legal) diesel fuel I can find, etc. Since you ditched your diesel for the gas truck, any regrets? I enjoy having 15+ mpg aand loads of power. It gets pretty windy in Montana (40-70 mph is not uncommon) during the...

    Indecision, the (Ford) Used Diesel Market and the Year 2021 - Need a sanity check

    Hey everyone, I'm in the market for a used truck. Not to seem rude up front, but Im only interested in Ford only. I'm mainly debating between F250/F350 with 7.3L (New Body Style) or 6.7L (2015/2016-ish). Backstory. In 2012, I bought a 1995 F250 Extended Cab (4x4, 7.3L w/225,000 miles). I...

    My attempt at a Pop-up........It begins....

    Thanks for the detailed reply! I think 82/20 aluminum could be one of the greatest inventions of our time! I was thinking about mounting the rod vault to the ceiling inside (and how hokey THAT would look). I probably never would've thought of using the jack brackets to mount the rods. Your...

    My attempt at a Pop-up........It begins....

    1. Very impressive build! 2. I've been struggling to figure out how to secure my Rod Vault to a truck camper. How did you do it?
