OMG...looks great!! Hummm...looks just like my SLC on THAT side- other than the color! And you got the DP front- you'll really like that!

Just wait until you have to wash it...I just got done before sundown washing 1/2 of mine (well...roof, driver's side, and back) and I'm re-thinking my stance about going to Home Depot and hiring some 'guys' to wash/wax it the next time.

Looks really good- and it's sitting darn purdy...you dun good Amigo!!

Of course, you've got to re-itinerate all the goodies inside (and outside) for us...it's been, like, ages since you told us what you ordered.

And we want a very concise debriefing on the tow home...what did you like- what did you dislike! My bet is that you had a on that pull!

Wow what a Rig Lincster, I left a couple of comments on the photo page and rated them at the highest. It said on my post I was Annonymous, but it was me. Way to go, and I am proud for you.

WWFan and myself have been up awhile waiting on these pictures, glad to see you got them on right before I call it a night. I guess I can sleep good now and dream about it.

Just wait until you gotta climb that ladder that seems like it's gonna pull out and leave you on the concrete flat on your back (actually it's pretty darn stable considering!)...had to do that, and it's not one of those things I relish doing again. And yes...ALOT taller than my old '95, but built alot better!

Oh...and I discovered that my RV washbrush doesn't extend enough, either...too much work to get up high. Can you say 'ladder'?! I've been thinking about buying a self-propelled sizzor lift just to wash it, but then again, the labor rate will have to surpass diesel prices porportionally to substantiate it!!

Hey...we'll meet one of these days soon? Mikey's a Gordon's/Buttercup fan also...we'll [Klink!].

Good for you!

Sean

I guess you could go to your nearest Blue Beacon truck wash, and supervise them to wash it, but of course I know its not cheap. But I almost think it would be worth it to me.

Good looking trailer there Linc. Your weight and mine are almost the same. Guess those slideouts really add the weight. My Pin is more but thats with 3 batteries and all the camping gear in it, probably why. Enjoy!

Thanks Tom,
Yeah, I just wanted to post an "as built" weight so people could see what they would be getting into.
I am putting in 2 golf cart batteries this weekend and loading my stuff up.
I will post weights again after Halloween when I have the trailer loaded for bear.

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Ok, for the towing part.
I loved the take off umphhhhh. You can tell those gears help.
I loved that I could maintain 72 up small hills and not have the tranny shift and the rpms scream.
I loved that big rigs do not push me around anymore.
I love Tow/Haul. Tap on the breaks and it shifts down right away and helps slow me down.

What I didn't like:
I have a wicked shake from take off, need to have Ford shim out my carrier bearing for the driveline.
When it shifts, it hits hard. Is that the gears causing that or the pin weight? I didn't have a hard shift in my 04.
Not realizing how long it is and how much wider you have to swing a 5er.... (already curbed the tires, good thing I am taking them off...

I will report back more as I use it more.
Thanks,
Linc
