RE: Rims for 350

2. I guess I'm the only guy in the world that finds black wheels, well, just ugly. What happened to the beautiful polished alloy wheels that look great on literally everything? I honestly feel that a group of auto execs got together and said "hey guys, if we can equip vehicles with black wheels that we can produce waaaay cheaper than alloy wheels, and at the same time convince our buyers that they are really good looking, we can add to the bottom-line in a big way!" I guess if it worked for Christian Louboutin painting the soles of women's shoes red, then charging over a grand a pair for them, why couldn't such a scheme work in the auto industry . . . and by golly, it has! Tell me I'm not the only person alive that has an aversion to black wheels . . . or am I?? I'm with you

RE: The world of tow vehicles would be a better place if

I want super singles tucked under the SRW fenders instead of a dually. Going to be a bit narrower between the wheel wells and that is fine by me. If all you drive on is dry pavement or gravel they would be fine. But get any moisture, rain, snow even wet grass and you wouldn't like them. Back in the late 70's and early 80's I had a CC LB with what then was a large tire, 12.00 X 16.5 that truck could get stuck if you spit on the grass and rolled over it. Those were on 10" rims. I think what you want is wider yet so what about hydroplaning also

RE: Custer State Park. 175 site new camp proposal

Did you comprehend what you read. It's not an expansion of an existing campground but going into a somewhat wild area of Custer State Park that according to the article is a prime Elk habitat. Also according to the article the Elk population is down from what the GFP has targeted and the feeling is this is likely to have a negative affect on future growth

RE: Custer State Park. 175 site new camp proposal

So these destinations should be made less available and less desirable to the public? Good grief... I never said they should be made less desirable. But they do not have to be made to look like the town square either. No idea how old you are but I've seen to many beautiful areas overdeveloped to the point that, in many peoples opinion, they are no longer what made them desirable in the first place

RE: Custer State Park. 175 site new camp proposal

So many times I long for things/places to be as they used to be. Dirt paths instead of paved sidewalks, dirt/gravel rds. instead of 2-4 lanes of traffic. The powers that be for popular destinations just continue to destroy the beauty that made them popular

Rather than drive a Powerstroke I would drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log ! Can not beat a Cummins !!! So tell us how you really feel about Found-On-Road-Dead aka Fix-Or-Repair-Daily.

RE: RV Site UP Michigan - Finger Lakes

Van Riper on the east side of Lake Michigamme off U.S. 41 between Marquette and L'Anse is nice campground. Another nice one is Muskallonge Lake north of Newberry. It sits on the north side of Muskallonge Lake and Lake Superior is a short walk across the road

RE: Elko, NV to Victor, ID

Being that your inexperienced with mountain driving whatever you do DO NOT tow 33/22 over the pass down into Jackson. It's quite a drop

RE: Road Condition West Bound into Cody, WY on US Hwy 14

Bob I've done west to east on 14A pulling a 24" BP loaded car trailer. I haven't been in that area headed west since that time to take 14A west bound, but I'm now pulling a 38'BP. I'm wondering what are you pulling when your heading west on 14A

RE: Selling Fifth Wheel Hitches - How To

Try Auto Parts on Craigslist. Scammers are everywhere including Facebook Marketplace you just need to weed them out. Over the years I've bought and sold many things on Craigslist and I haven't lost any money yet

RE: US 12 Lolo MT to Kooskia Id

We went through there in 19 driving our CC duallie pulling a 30' 5th wheel. It's a beautiful drive. We stayed at the Pink House BLM campground right on the river just west of Orofino. It's a very nice campground with amenities Update: Sorry I looked at the map again and Pink house Campground is over 30 mi west of Kooskia

RE: Road Condition West Bound into Cody, WY on US Hwy 14

How big is the 5er? How are you with mountain driving? If you are hesitant you don't want to do 14. Most here would recommend not going 14 and definitely not 14A. It's a bit longer but 16 out of Buffalo isn't bad. It is mountain driving but nothing like 14 and 14A. If you want fairly flat towing go to Billings and then down 310 from Laurel

RE: Theodore Roosevelt National Park

If you boondock there are sites in the south park. I don't know about the north part. You won't/shouldn't have any trouble with 26' on the roads. Enjoy the wild horses, buffalo and prairie dogs. Check out Chateau de Mores State Historic Site on the south edge of Medora, you can see it from the entrance to the park

RE: Damaged 5er hitch by backing too hard

I use two screw/stick on levels. One is movable and I set it at zero for the unhook height so when time to hook up I just raise to zero. The other is to level the trailer front to back
