2007 1T DRW Chevy with 2500# Okanagan camper. No mods all stock. Previously on a 2500 gas with Rancho stocks and airbags. Lots of rock and roll. 1T DRW fixed everything.


My new DRW and camper on the truck the first time.

For clarification, do you consider shocks to be a modification or not? They replace a stock part with an equivalent or better but since they are also a wear item you could consider them just replacements. The same question goes for the tires I suppose.

As I mentioned above, I did replace the shocks and eventually the tires but with no major notable difference with the shocks and the tires were the same size and load rating as the worn out OEM tires.

We have a 2005 Dodge dually hauling a 2001 Lance 1030. The truck has 208k miles so we did replace the shocks. But everything else is stock. It handles great.
I think our camper is around 4000lbs loaded up ready to roll.

I'm of the thinking that 'wear items' are just that. If they wore out and you replaced them then you are not modifying your truck.

In my case the OEM tires were boarder line at best and underrated at worse. I upgraded them and count that as a modification.

I did run a arctic fox 1140 on a stock 2011 Ram 3500 and then it went on a 2016 stock Ram 3500. I then traded for a Host mammoth and ran it on the stock 2016 Ram 3500. I wanted to pull a trailer at times so I traded for a 2018 Ram 5500. I ran the Host on it, all stock!

So you can be counted as one of the few.

I used my new 2017 stock for ~100miles. (that was ENOUGH!)
