2015 cyclone 4200 pros/cons

The ole lady and I just closed on a barely used 2015 cyclone 4200 HD series. Got it for 20k less than it books for so I feel like we got a pretty good deal on it. We will be picking it up on Saturday 18th in the morning, happy Father's Day to me haha. Anyways anyone with input for advice/pros/cons anything please chime in. Also a new member to this forum as of 5 min ago so still figuring this out.

Congrats, just make sure you have enough truck to safely tow/stop that rig. Then enjoy, enjoy, and enjoy some more.

Lanny: yes sir I work in the oil and gas and have Cdl A and have driven just about everything. Even have some time on the ice roads off the Arctic Ocean in northern Alaska and it is as sketchy as it sounds. I have a 2008 ram 3500 crew cab dually 4x4 6 speed manual, fully deleted, efi live, dual disc clutch, 5inch exhaust. Just installed new brake controller and found/fixed air leak in my ride rite air bags on the rear. The only concerns I have are I'm running 35's mud tires, and the dual disc clutch is really grabby. And that trailer is heavy.

Congratulations. we loved our Cyclone and miss some of it's attributes. As a previous Cyclone 4100 owner, I would say No. 1 in importantance is to make sure it has good tires. If it has Powerking Towmax tires on it, get rid of them immediately. They (Heartland) made a switch somewhere in your timeframe, to G rated tires, because of the huge number of tire failures. Hopefully yours already has the upgrade. BTW, I towed my 4100 for 17K mi with Michellin XPS Ribs and I would do the same all over again. The grand slam would be 17.5" tires and wheels for that monster.

Diddo on what he said! MAKE SURE NO PowerKing TowMax tires on it. We too had a Cyclone 4100 K which was great. Had to invest in Goodyear G614's after blowout. Once we pulled them the tech showed me that 5 of 6 were about to blow. Luckily the tire company sent me a decent check for them. Make sure if new tires are needed you check the back of the rim for 110 psi rating and not 85 if you are going to run the good tires.
