No more TC (sadly)....for now. Was looking for a long bed and a bigger TC, so's I put the old Dodge and Arctic Fox up on Gregslist and whadaya know. Some kid randomly offered to trade me his 2016 Ram 2500 with over 100k less miles than the old Mega, for our truck and camper.
The result is this!

After a little consternation about the bro-dozer wheels, I came to my senses and realized this thing is way nicer and worth more than we was givin up. Plus it's in very good shape.
The rest is history. Straight across 2 for 1 trade at the dmv, no tax, new truck!

Considering this thing aint fit for more than a popup, if we end up keeping it, I see a TT in our near future!

Thanks guys....
The wife and older boy are hands down, in favor of the luxury of a the space a TT provides. Not sure if I want to spoil them into getting used to that!
My buddy as ditched his Airstream Bambi in our driveway now since summer. Maybe I'll hold that hostage and use it next year, that way noone gets too comfortable with the "open concept" living that a proper TT affords!
LOL

You know , I have a friend that got a truck like that because it looked good. A couple of years later he wants to sell it because it just doesn't tow well with the lift kit and those wheels. He has a another truck that is stock and it tows so much better that he is going to get rid of the one with the bling wheels.

It is a nice looking truck.

The tires aren't full on bro dozer they have some sidewall [emoticon]

A set of custom Deaver spring packs might be something to take a gander at... blocks and bump stops come out and articulation and ride and tow capability go in...
