  1. Sounds like you may have found the problem. Rule of thumb I was taught it limit straps will stretch about 1" per 12" of strap.
  2. I bought my paddles from the same guy that had the windshield. I've never cared about the red beadlock rings, until now. When @dbart did the renderings he did one with black rings and one with grey. I liked the grey which would match some of the wrap colors. Three seasons of sand under the beadlock rings. I went with a dark 'gun metal' grey. They look black in the pics but they are dark grey.
  3. The floor is a nice single piece and was 'Line-X' coated by the previous owner. Unfortunately he also rattle can sprayed the chassis with primer paint after the floor was bolted on and it looked like shit. I figured if he sprayed painted it so could I. Looks much better. The only two items KATG didn't do are the dash and the windshield frame. The dash was done by Jones Fab a few years ago and the windshield was bought from a board member here that had the same car and some leftover parts from his build. In hindsight I should have had KATG make me a new windshield frame. It wold have been way less work than stripping the blue powder coat off this one. I took it to my powder coater and he said they couldn't sand blast it because it wold get too hot and warp the frame. He suggested a chemical stripper. Using a chemical stripper SUCKED. It was a huge mess and took FOREVER. I gave up at one point and took a wire wheel to the frame. I move around a lot to make sure the frame didn't get too hot. Good enough for me.
  4. No, I wouldn't. And a real life example of what I would do- My son needed a newer pickup to replace his 1992 GMC 1/2 ton (sold to a board member) and I would have loved to get him a Duramax for when he starts running transports for me. But that's not the priority right now, he just needs a PU for his yard work/brush clearing business. So I settled on a 2002 Chevy 2500HD with the 6.0 gas engine and towing package (purchased from a board member). If I absolutely had to use his truck to pull a trailer I could.
  5. Told this story before but here it is again- my son broke his back in 2017 Thanksgiving week in Glamis. We didn't know that and drove him to the Brawley ER. They did a CT scan and found a compression fracture. We had a Reach membership and called them. They said they were not coming because he was stabilized and in a hospital. I suppose if we had stayed in the dunes at the scene of the accident and called Reach then maybe, just maybe they would have flown him to Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego. Instead he was strapped to a back board in the Brawley ER while we waited 6 hours for a ground ambulance to be dispatched, then a 2 hour drive to Rady. So eff them and their membership. Read the fine print.
  6. 407,000 miles on my 2006 Duramax diesel, probably 50% of that towing some sort of trailer. Even for a pickup that rarely, if ever, tows a trailer, how many gas powered trucks have that high of mileage and are still road worthy? Very few I'd think.

    @RallyAlleigh will get you dialed in.
  8. I've been in this trailer a few times and it is really well built.
  9. Run it up higher, no curls, and run it back down below the chassis.
  10. I have a set of I believe +4 forward trailing arms if anyone is interested. No clue who made them or even where I got them, but I saw them on a shelf on my shop the other day and have no use for them whatsoever. Not even sure what they're worth?
  11. Loved that feed. Lots of (*)(*) and ass. It got shut down and now is @kirilwashere. Way more tame and no nips. He posts stuff on Snapchat, which I hear is more lenient on nudity but I'm still learning how to use that app.
