ya, you suck! That's why you should cut me a better deal on that generator

Thanks! It's got a 7.3, picked it up Easter weekend knowing I was going to do this build. I've only put about 50 miles on it so no mileage numbers but it handles AWESOME, it really is amazing. After 1 or 2 trips I'll know if I need airbags but right now I'm saying no...we'll see how that is.

Been there, we took a major leap on this one went straight from a tent to the 5th wheel. I learned my lesson on buying what you want the first time since I've been through 3 trucks in 3 years, if I would've just spent $5k extra 3 years ago on a dually I would've had it paid off already. Live & learn (or hopefully learn).
