I just installed a set of 5 step torklifts on my 2017 mammoth this past weekend. It was a super tight fit and I can only use the top two height adjustments because of it, which, the lower would make the top step too long of a step anyway. I think at the second notch it made the top step either 12" or 14", can't remember exactly. It was so tight I had to modify the step hardware a little. If it was on a flatbed you definatly want to go with 6 steps. The seem to work good but I haven't actually made a trip with them yet.


Do you have pics of this??

Not yet. Waiting until it’s loaded on the truck next time.

Host will do almost anything if you tell them in time. I would have your list ready when you place your order.

I'd tend to disagree. #1 if it doesn't affect the production line. #2 if it doesn't affect electrical or some type of safety system. #3 even deleting things causes a cascade of impacts. Like if you don't want the convertor, inverter, etc... that changes a lot of wiring. #4 just because they will do something, what's the cost. Be prepared to pay what would seem like a premium for such an option change.

Best to try to find ways to do some things yourself and only absolutely approach them on things that could not be retrofit easily later.

Good luck

Ordered my new toad for the camper. 2019 Jeep JL 2 door rubicon. Going to put a rock hard bumper and winch on it and setup for flat towing. Also ARB fridge etc in the back.
I still can't get pics to load of my buckstop and winch on the truck.

Last month, we parked the car in the trailer and took off for a week-long trip. I bought the trailer with enough capacity to haul a car and not just my toys. There was enough room up front to carry bicycles and the engine was forward of the trailer axles. It worked out better for me than outfitting a car that could be flat towed and I'm already used to the trailer.
