Well What a day. It's at home Chrissened with all the neighbors and I and the family have *&^%^$% eating grins on our face's from ear to ear. PDI went great; David retired 20 year Air Force walked us through. Very pleasant man. Couple miner flaws and My TrailAir was the wrong width and bolt pattern. (All Brief you all on that later; Note no fault of TrailAir Inc) For now I am very happy and satisfied and just want to post the pics you want to see I'm sure so here goes!



Cheers
Griz

Man Griz!!

I've been waitin up ALL night to see if you were done!

Nuttin like a new LE...we were wonderin' where you were...good setup! Looks Great! How's Jennfier like it? I sensed a tad of a poop-eatin' grin there!

Aww...you must be happier than a pig in...well, you know.....I remember that day! Now it's yours! Good for you!

And I can see by that first pic why you were doggin' it- had to enjoy that first (wel..maybe second, third, fourth- that's the one where you look like 'Bill').

Hey...have fun tonight, ya hear?!

Sean

Kristen 14 Freshmen this year (Knows All) Amanda 12, the good daughter, Out to help the world, won't even let me mow the lawn anymore. (See how independent these military families became when dad deploys. Love em to death!

Clark that's with 150 Gal of water. Why do the have to fill them full? Love those air bags!!!

Towed great all 2 miles to the house. Wife geeked because she has never ridden in a tow before and every bump or sound she came unglued. She will get use to it.

Noticed one thing right off the bat! Boy them electric jacks are sloooow. Time to get some 12X12 blocks. Another thing I Forgot was the Ramp locks so I sent the wife to Home Depot. Man there is alot of gismos and switches and fuses etc on them things. Way more stuff then I remember from 25 years ago!

Tell Jen there's going to be noises and bumps and bounces when pulling. Just goes with towing.

Is your Trail-air on or did something else have to work?

The trailAir was a no go for now. The pin box is 12 1/2". The TrailAir is 12" also the bolt patern is different. When I order from TrailAir they seemed confident they sent me the right one. When I recieved it I measured and then went to Giant and Measured a 3305 on the lot and everything checked good. Today I go to mount it and low and behold mine is different. Don't know if its a production line change or just the dif form 3305 to 3505. Now I have to call TrailAir and get the right one sent and return the one I have. Oh well just one of the many mods I will be taken care of. For now I just mounted my pullrite plate to the stock pin. (Thanks to the help of a fellow Marine).

Griz

Im beat gang. We have much to talk about but after wrestling with pin boxs half the day.... its time for some shut eye.

Thanks for staying up and celebrating with me.

Griz

Griz and Jennifer,
SWEET !
That is a great looking combo, that Bowtie and LE, Black an' Red. Real Nice!!

Now that looks like a happy family !!
And thats funny about Jenny being a little saddle shy about all the noises that the trailer makes as it pulls down the road, never having towed a 5'r and all. Wait until the first time you turn to her while driving the rig and tell her its her turn to take the wheel.


And you got the diamnod plate lowers on the inside and the front d-plate cover. Thats a great job Don!! Glad to hear the PDI went off well and that you got a good guy there to walk you through it.

Happy ??

Mike and Cordie

I'm sitting here looking at all those smiling Griz faces and thinking (always dangerous bur particularly dangerous at 0700) with all these haulers, TT,5er's & soon to be MH's I'm sure, we could start a co-op just to buy Protectall. I know I'm going out today to get a gallon + their wash. You folks put some on all that fiberglas siding now & you'll be happy later. Gold Rushers Co-Op.. Sounds good! Mornin Mike nice to see you on this early what with early morning chores and all.

Dave:

Just what/how good is ProtectAll? Where do ya get it? I'm still looking for something I can put on and not worry for, say, a lifetime!!
