Well we got the truck, 2005 Ford F-250 FX4x4 Turbo Diesel SRW Crew cab, we just need the toy box..lol.

Trying to get the numbers on a TT or a 5er. We want to put the 04 Jeep TJ inside and go play in the sand.A couple dealers are not real positive about the CCC and if the Jeep will fit.

Open to any ideas. Thanks

I know of one person that hauls a jeep in an SLC 3905. If you order the higher queen bed option with the single queen electric bed, you get 78" of clearance. If you get the double electric queen bed option, it has 77" of clearance. You can't order the higher clearance with the double queens.

Sorry I guess I didn't make it clear, that's the height, not the width.

Been awhile since I posted hear but this topic caught my eye. Up until last year I towed my 3705slc in sig all over Pismo Beach with an F250 SRW and only got stuck a few times. I thought this was the best it could get. Last year I upgraded to the F350 DRW and I can tell you without a doubt its better in the sand then my old SRW. I've yet to get stuck. Now airing back up, thats another story. BTW did I mention both were for sale? ASA Site

Wow...nice rigs...why the fire sale? If the PSD was white, you'd probably have a buyer! And you're in our 'ol stompin' grounds! Fresno and Visalia! Gosh...sooooo many memories...

Good luck!

aaahhh...very good!

And actually, I LOVE that color, but the white will allow me to graphic the new TV to match the WW.

BTW...how many miles do you have on the F350? And it appears that you didn't have to flip the axles- is that right? Rig looks really good, man!

My truck is that height, 56", and I've flipped the axles on two 5'rs that i've towed behind it. One of them I towed for a year before flipping, it wasn't horrible without flipping but better with. With the 4x4 truck with 4" blocks and slightly oversize offroad 295's sitting a little tall, the fiver was putting a little more weight on its rear axle then on its front.
Hauling a number of bikes or a Jeep is a fair amount of extra weight. I want the trailer tires to be absorbing the weight as equally as possible. WW's axle ratings on their triple-axle trailers might be 6000 pounds each (18,000 pounds) but if a stock D rated tire is prox 2,500 (15,000 pounds) those tires appear to be a limiting factor of the trailer limits.
And some 5'r owners like to see 5 inches of gap between their rail top and the 5'r, but i've been on some dirt trails before where you would see 6 or 7 inches of space dissapear rapidly. There might be different opinions, but if I hear 56", i'm talking flipping.

Kev:

That's a good piece of info to have there! What kinda bed clearance ya got without flippin' the feeties? That's exactly the truck I'm lookin' for, but that 'color thing' is just not gonna work.

And your 05 is just a newborn with that mileage-kinda hard to really consider it "tested"- I was hoping you'd say, like "130,000 miles- I drive the crap outta it"!

Oh well...fodder for someone else, eh?

Sean
