Well, that weight is trailer AND truck...... But Alice is STILL beautiful!

Solar panels, stainless boxes, 6 batteries and boxes, inverter.... He is taking CREDIT for part of the weight..
and with the original axels, we WOULD have been overweight - but he put heavier duty ones, so that makes up for extra weight as WELL as safety.. Just passing HIS words on.. guy talk - I know NOTHING about it! LOL!

Same as your SRW? That surprises me, I would have thought 4:10 on a DRW.

Trying to reach over the wide fenders is the first thing I had to resolve, I made me a set of matching factory rear steps for the dually bed.
I can reach in and unhook with no problems now, I have no idea way the factory does not make a set for the rear dually bed.

50% of the time it's not a problem. I use the step I bought to put in front of the steps of the trailer. I kept my AMP fold down step for the back and I think they make one for the side.

AMP does make a step for the side, that's one of the things I'm going to want when I get my transferflow toolbox/fuel tank installed. Good looking rig Mike, Welcome to the dually group.

The chrome accents look really good and I agree on skipping the stripe :thumbrt:

Debbie does not like my pure white truck, she wants me to have an American flag decal put on the sides, we saw one on a pickup at the Little Big Horn Battlefield back in '04 that she really liked.

Kind of surprised took my truck in for an oil change plus a spin on Allison filter. I have 2,100 miles on the truck with 600 of that towing so I had them top off the DEF. I figured it would take 2 gallons but only took 1/4 gallon?

We are on our way to Oregon towing with the new truck (7,500 miles) and yesterday for the first time the message came on to add DEF , message said I had 30% left. Going 7500 miles is better then I was told when I first bought the truck :thumbrt: . The only thing I used the truck for is to tow our 5th wheel.

I read somewhere that the new trucks are using less DEF.
