Gotta love a girl that loves a loud exhuast, My wife loves my 5" exhaust, but maybe thats just because it's the only 5 inches she gets to see.

I will put it in my stock trailer...I like how you people call it a "rape shack"like you are living 4 years ago in my old posts.

During travels when we arrive to a destination it will be easy to put the empty water tank into the bed of the F450 and make water runs. Plan on getting a gas water pump to fill it.

If any of you have ever had five horses you will get a new understanding on how little 325+ gallons of water is.

No but when I drive to Alaska I dont want my entire trip to be put to a hault when I hit a moose or other large animal. Without a bumper I could toast the entire front clip in a split second, fiberglass has no strength.


The camper will be going onto the F700 in August.

Question why does it look like you pull the lighter of the 2 trailers with a small semi? How much is the weight difference between the 2 with the horses in that aluminum trailer? I guess that other trailer just looks like an anchor in the pictures.. Also I'm digging the "I don't care about paint" look on that cattle clearer.. Really says get out the way, no time for finishing a project haha Overall looks to be a nifty build

Reason is because we got the F450 and big trailer before I got the F700. We actually got the trailer before the 450 and lucked out finding a emissions deleted truck that makes great power. It is a heavy ass trailer but it pulls down the road like a dream and we shoe horn it into some of the tightest areas. The F700 on the other hand was free to me in a labor trade and it is the farthest from the F450 in ride comfort etc. The only way to make the truck louder, hotter, shakier, bumpy would be to put an old 2 stroke Detroit in it. The main reason for the F700 is that it is big enough to tow the Bloomer if there was a problem.

I took this rig down to Arizona this past winter and it is a good truck with enough motor but not heavy duty enough for serious use. 3/4-1ton parts arent big enough. Probably going to end up swapping the 7.3 PSD into Ford SUV of sorts.




This guy is my all-time wheeling rig. The Spur is like a skinny pedal but the mileage is better. He is a big horse but nowhere near our biggest, we have a 16.2 hand Walker that is an F700 of horses.

I would shoot myself before I drove an old lumber hauler at 55mph listening to a I6 at 2250 RPM all the way to Alaska.

It will have a 2spd rear by that time. I drove lumber trucks for quite a few years so I am pretty used to their loud droning tendencies.
