RE: Bittersweet

Know of a guy. His Arthritis got so bad. He was not able to move his knees. Then it got where his back and other joints joined right in there. He takes a IV drip every 90 days. Got him back to moving again. Also back to work and farming. He still takes the IV drip every 3 months. But after loosing a leg. Hes not doing that great. But that iv drip did get him 7 good years. I can find out what its called if you would like to know.

RE: Bed mat and cutting out for factory bed holes?

Do the pucks have threaded holes? If so, cut head off bolts and screw them in. Tap cardboard or mat (plywood?) with hammer, this would make marks for center. No threaded holes. Just big key like cutouts. The frame fits into then you turn the key. It spins and locks it in place. But after hauling the camper 600 miles. There's perfect marks in the mat now to cut out the holes.

RE: Fast Gun issue?

+1 I have been using them like this since 2009. Ensure that they are mounted with gravity pulling the nut into the closed position. Thanks for the photo. Pete

RE: Bed mat and cutting out for factory bed holes?

Made a template of Cardboard. Then cut the mat using that. Got the 2016 Eagle Cap 1200 home. Did not move on the 650 mile trip. Feel that the camper should mark the 5 pucks. As the weight should leave the impressions on the mat. If not will get those marked also. Will be spraying the white bed liner in this spring. Just not warm enough to get it done this winter. Unless my shot gets finished before spring. But its like everything else. Waiting on the concrete to get poured.

RE: Fast Gun issue?

Just use the links mentioned by 3 tons. They won't come loose if they are snugged with a wrench. I've been using them for 7 years cause needed them when I upgraded from a 2004 to 2015 Ram. They are just attached to the Torklift frame mount insert and stay on all the time. Have a bunch of those. But the kind I'm using no issues removing easy. Also both are rated for more then they should ever see. But always go big or go home. When we bought our 2006 Okanagan. Those 3 tons shows were on them. As with it only got chain and turnbuckets. Now own 2 sets of Fast Guns.

RE: Fast Gun issue?

Pete, ...if you use the add-a-link component, be sure that they don't back off the threads and open up while driving (you want the "O" shape, not the "C" shape.) If it opens up, the integrity could perhaps be compromised. I plan on using Chain Clevis to mount the chain. That way it can't come loose.

RE: Fast Gun issue?

Thanks Guy's. Going to just add 2 links to and let it ride. Friday I removed 2 of the clevis shackle off the Super hitch 4ft extension. That give me just enough room to make it work. Pete

Fast Gun issue?

The fast Guns came up short yesterday. They were about 2" short of reaching my Torklift frame mounts on the front. The rear fit without any issue. But on my 2022 ram 3500. Its like the frame mounts put the receiver lower then it needs to be. Thus the front when extended all the way. Still is short. Has anyone added a couple of links of chain to the Receiver section?

RE: Bed mat and cutting out for factory bed holes?

Bed mat will be 3/16" for that reason. With the picture frame in the truck. A 3/16 piece of lexan, just fits. I can adjust the pucks to take care of some of that if need be. I'm thinking lift up one side at a time. Put red lipstick on the bed cover lips. Then lay the mat back down. But have a section of Vinyl floor in the shop. Its 5ft by 10ft. Thinking I will use it as a template. Get everything right, then use to it to drill the holes out. May have to pick up a 4x8 1/4" mat Monday. If I buy the camper were going to look at. To get it home on. If so they also have a 5x8 mat. May just buy it and cut to fit the truck. AS the DEZ-DZ86916 - Dee Zee Truck Bed Mat has been moved back to Mid Jan now. So if I go this route. I will cancel that order. They told me yesterday It would not be an issue if I did not wait until Jan to cancel that mat.

Bed mat and cutting out for factory bed holes?

Ordered the new 3500 with the factory puck system in the bed. Now I did not get the factory spray in bed liner. Going to put the rubber bed mat in when it makes it here. But would like to cut around all 5 circle covers in the bed. Figure if I cut the new mat to fit those parts. That would allow me to use the 5th wheel frame and the goose neck ball. While still having the mat in place. Anyone find a easy way to lay out mat to fit these and cut the mat? I'm thinking hole-saw and lay the mat down with the covers off the puck sections. Then find the center of those holes. Cut out big enough for the whole cover on each. Will be spraying the white Bed Liner on the sides of the bed. Along with the tailgate next spring/Summer. But want the floor to only have the bed mat. Sorry for such a long winded question. But these days I'm bad about this. Pete

RE: 3500 CC Running boards?

Got the Torklifts mounted on the truck Saturday. Looking at them, not sure why the lady at Torklift would think I could not have used the factory steps. She told me these mounted on the same frame mount as the steps. Come to find out the steps on the 2019-2022 at least. Only mount to the pinch welds. Not the round cab mounts like she was telling me. Now the Torklifts did use the cab mounts. Sad part of the install. Parking Brake cable was the hardest part of the whole install. But the 5" long 3/4 socket and threw socket in the size to fit the nut. make it a breeze to even back off the adjustment of the cable. Might get to use the Fast Guns and Torklifts next week. Not sure but will know more Monday.

RE: 3500 CC Running boards?

Thanks Guys, got back home with the truck today. 555 miles on it as of now. Sad, I'm 6ft1" and tough getting in and out of this truck. Guess theres more people wanting trucks Tall. Then just a normal truck, thats easy to get into. So far love the truck, other then getting in and out. But ordering side steps tomorrow for it. I felt that cab length would work. But had one person at Torque lift tell me running board-Side step would not work. As they bolted in the same spot as the Tie down Brackets. Feel she was off in left field. Her wires were crossed and no ideal what was what. I can say, a 22 ram 3500 with factory 50 gallon fuel tank. With showing 1/8th tank of fuel. Held 46 gallons of fuel today. Fuel light if it has one did not come on. But still showed I had 79 miles left to empty.

RE: 3500 CC Running boards?

Sorry but was asking about Running boards/ side steps for the truck. Thus torklift tie downs and Crew Cab 3500. Not camper steps, as for now have the Horse. Just need the side steps for it. Then make sure there going to not be in the way of the Frame Mounted tie downs.

3500 CC Running boards?

What running boards have been found to work on a 3500 crew cab? I have the Torklift frame mounted tie downs. Truck will be picked up next week. I did not get steps on it. Because of reading where some would not work. If you used Torklifts. I would like to have the ones that stop of the rear door. Any ideals would for sure help out. Pete

RE: Tow Dolly Woe

The whole "It's illegal" discussion is irrelevant here, because this is for a car dolly, not a commercial trailer, and not in BC. If the OP is dragged down a boat dock by his car, something is very very wrong. Used to get dragged down the ramp 3 or 4 times per day. But then again with a Yacht. Plus we always stopped when the boat hit the water. This was with a class 8 single axle semi also.

RE: Does the State of TN title truck campers?

What does "As long as we did not need a title" mean, though? Shouldn't the TN authorities be the one to tell you if you need a title? If it were up to me I would not "need" a tile on anything. Lots of $$$ saved. What does "As long as we did not need a title" mean, though? Thats easy to answer, If you have a loan, that company 99% of the time. Wants a Title, thus you have to go through the DMV. They will take your $$ for the Tag and Title. Plus all Taxes due at that time. But if you pay cash, have no loan on that camper. You can skip that part. Does that answer your question to that What Does?

RE: Does the State of TN title truck campers?

I was told, if I needed a Title. I had to pay Tn taxes and get a Tag. But if I did not need a Title. I did not need to do anything for a Truck camper. That was on our 2006 Okanagan. That we paid cash for back then. Bought in Denver Co, so nothing to do in Tn. Fast Forward to last week. We were going to look at a 2018 used truck camper. Asked the same Question, was told again. As long as we did not need a Title. We did not need to come in. That a Bill of sale and Cert of built was all that I would need. Even tough the truck camper had a Tx Title.
