Do people find they NEED/HAVE to do aftermarket work on their TV to get it 'fit' to tow large trailers or 5th wheels?
I don't have technical details ... we got our '04 23' Attitude Toy Hauler in 2004 ... put a 'heavy duty ATS transmission' and a 'compression brake' in our 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins Diesel ... more was done too.
Bought truck Dec. 1999 and we have 140,000 original miles. Haven't replaced brakes in ??? years .... LOVE the compression brakes! Mechanically .... haven't done much except maintenance since buying this truck and having upgrades done. We've replaced the windshield more than anything. We live in IDAHO where they LOVE to tear up perfectly good roads and repave EVERY spring.
2007 while hubby was on a business trip for 5 weeks ... I had truck painted! YES, everyone! including the OWNER of the auto shop told me they would KILL their wife if she did that to their truck! Now ... come on ... I had it painted original factory colors ... it wasn't PINK!
Also had new lettering, trim, headlights, bumbers, wheels and tires, etc... all the body work done on it. A good sprucing up. She (her name is Connie after the USS Constitution ... hubby was a submariner at 6' 4" tall!) looks brand new still!
