I think i'd fix the body paint/molding problem long before changing the rimZ.

What a stupid mud bogger comment.

It's 36' from the factory but someone put 3 ' ramps on the front it will not fit 3 rigs with my dakota up there 3 jeeps prolly would I cut off the ramps as my short bed is to small to turn with them.

Made some nice storage bins outta the ramps tho

I dont think I would like that setup. Having that front rig way up in the air its gonna catch a ton of air both in the sense of excess drag and in the sense of side to side sway do to the high center of gravity....especially with a srw tow rig. Maybe i'm all wrong.

Finally got around to putting a leveling kit on my tow rig. I didn't really need the height gain but I needed the truck to be more level. My trailer (5th wheel) is none too tall so it sits a little uphill on the truck, and the truck sat way ass high before which meant they were runing at opposing angles. This caused issues with trailer to bed clearance at the tailgate (the intersection of those opposing planes)...now with the truck (nearly) level the angels are tons better and so is my clearance.

Picked up a new to me tow rig this week after my old Dodge was in an accident.

2007 Dodge Ram 3500 Dulley - 6.7l Cummins Diesel w/6 speed auto. Laramie package with all options inculding leather seats and sun roof.

This was a texas truck (I flew down there to pick it up)... can't find a spot of rust.


The truck computer said that we averaged 20.2 MPG for the 1400 mile trip home.... And thats bone stock.
